Misunderstandings and lack of communication can cause deals and agreements to be difficult. A single slip up in the translation can lead to years of hostility. "Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs." -Pearl Strachan Hurd. If we had one international language misinterpretations would be much easier to avoid as there would be no need to translate between languages.
If we were to say that a custom was correct or not, it wouldn’t be true in terms of Cultural Relativism due to us using our own culture to judge and that doesn’t take into consideration of other cultures. Realizing that different cultures have different moral codes is respectful and allows people to potentially take in a new way of life. It is interesting to think that cultures could eventually adapt to having an overarching moral truth, because of living in a more globalized world. Building on the belief that different cultures have different moral codes, the moral code of a society determines what is right. This is also a key tenet of cultural
For a start, scholars agree that communication is not limited to the mere act of talking. Wandberg (2000, in Kic-Drgas, 2015: 74) stated that communication also involves “gestures, facial expressions, and other ways we express meaning”. In a similar vein, Adler (1991: 63) pointed out that communication includes verbal and non-verbal messages, as well as consciously and non-consciously sent messages. Consequently, addressing conflicts in cross-cultural communication would need to take into account these wide-ranging aspects of
People, from different parts of the world should now entertained the notion of dope as cool and excellent. This modernized way of using and understanding dope manifests the changes in language and people’s mindset as a way to cope with english as a universal language. Because of this, we should entertain the liberal interpretation of the word dope. We should also understand that social rank, race, nationality and age are some of the factors that can affect the way people look at some terms. This should not be a barrier between people but unifier to further understand that english as a universal language presupposes a person’s responsibility to one
Present study, diversity has been sorted in many different contexts such as human context, ecological context, radio and telecommunications. First of all, diversity gives people an opportunity to be curious about others, to respect and to engage in mutual exploration and learning. The joy and fruit of diversity can only exist in a peaceful and plural society, which is requires people to respect the dignity and freedom of others. For this, we need to value universal human rights, which is difficult to attain without democracy. The role of government, politicians, religious reader, the press and the NGOs in promoting and practicing human rights is extremely important.
As a full amendment in our constitution, it should not be changed simply because it’s causing our country inconvenience in some people’s opinion. It will also cause more struggle and poverty for immigrants, legal or illegal, in America, which is something American’s have been working very hard to prevent in recent years. (Ronald Rotunda "Birthright Citizenship Benefits the
The idea of giving foreign aid to those in need may seem noble at glance. Yet, if we look deeper into the issue and observe the outcome, what we discover may not exactly be a positive impact on the recipient countries. An efficient aid-giving program requires more than just good intentions. It would be hard to argue that foreign aid has not done any good, when there are also plenty of cases where foreign aid has been used efficiently. However, as that is rather an exception than a rule, in this essay I will look at the cons of foreign aid claiming that it is actually not fulfilling it’s purpose.
Even though the erosion of individual privacy goes against our most fundamental and hard won freedoms, security is very important. Without it, the underlying threat of another event similar to 9/11 would be devastating. To ensure that this does not happen again, there should be increased security at the cost of individual
There should be a feeling reciprocity in accepting the values and norms between the two different cultures. So the acceptance of change should be both-ways. This approach is based on the belief that, there is no doubt that every culture is different in its own way but still they have some basics interests, concerns, qualities, traits and values that can provide a common ground for implication of universal human rights. Intracultural Dialogue: It means dialogue within the culture. In this way, there will be a change within the culture itself further making it flexible enough to provide space to accommodate the values of universal human rights.
Making a privilege of humanitarian intervention would just make it less demanding for the effective to legitimize meddling in the undertakings of the powerless. Some critics contend that a privilege to mediation would not make more „genuine‟ helpful activity since self-intrigue, not sway has customarily been the principle boundary to intercession. Be that as it may, it would make the world a more hazardous place by giving states more methods for defending power (Chesterman
