Harnessing examples from Tom Ze and the Tropicalist movement and de Andrade’s Cannibalist Manifesto results in an overall influential piece. It puts forth a desire to seek cultural and personal autonomy as one realizes how tied up humanity is in the notion of ‘intellectual property’. Ze was quite right in stating, “we are at the end, thus, of the composers’ era, inaugurating the plagi-combinator era.” We have reached an impasse in society wherein creation is virtually impossible without the indirect or direct aid of another visionary. We reached the climax of original creation long ago, and it is time that the definition of plagiarism was re-evaluated. The Tropicalist movement is a prime example of feeding off other societies and ideas to formulate a cultural product all your own.
( Matthew 7: 6 NLT) A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. So every tree good fruit cannot produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes just as you can identify people by their actions. (Matthew 7 verses 17-
It is through rebellion that change is made. According to Oscar Wilde, “Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.” Reviewing America’s journey from the up and coming country to the established yet still changing nation we are today, Wilde definitely makes a strong claim that these changes are driven with disobedience. Without civil disobedience, many social progressions such as women’s suffrage, the Civil Rights Movement, and the LGBT movements would not have brought success. In fact, without this sense of rebellion, women would not be voting, Martin Luther King Jr. would not have had his dream, and queer Americans would not have the right to marry.
Also, in the story of Adam and Eve, after God created Eve, he told her not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, just like Pandora was told not to open the box. Eve ate the forbidden fruit, gained the knowledge of both good and evil, and created a world with death and sickness, and hope, just as Pandora did. This relates to the proverb, “Curiosity killed the cat”. A Pandora's Box is anything that, upon investigation, leads to extensive and unexpected
Under the elites could entail a certain, specific "excellence" that allows individual recognition and prominence. In our social environment under the "excellence" often mean features such as resourcefulness, shuffle or conformity. According to the theories of the elite, the society manages closed minority, which has a dominant role over the masses. Elite exercised its dominance over the ideas expressed and symbolized "the use of the masses" and thus becomes one of the important subjects in the social sphere. The influence of the elite in a society is, undoubtedly, very important because it is an elite group that controls the media and shaping human
Dougherty maintains that: As rebel, traitor, culture hero, and protector of mankind, Prometheus embodies the human condition with all its potential for brilliant innovation and for cruel suffering. Throughout the centuries since the Prometheus myth first captured the popular imagination, the fire that he steals for mortals has come to represent the spirit of technology, forbidden knowledge, the conscious intellect, political power, and artistic inspiration.
Manson led his young army of men and women to extreme actions atypical of anything ever known in society, including group sex, narcotic drugs, and murder. Had it not been the time of the1960s counterculture, Manson would have never been able to rise to the level of power and control he obtained. Manson took this counterculture era of American individualism in the 1960s and by using psychedelic drugs, sexual liberation, and non-traditional experimentation to his advantage, he obtained control to cultivate his psychopathy and influence California’s radical youth into executing psychotic behaviors and heinous
And because dust is a sign of sexual awareness ,when Adam and Eve ate the apple became aware of their nakedness ,therefore dust roams around the adults and their daemons settle ,but the children are innocent and away from sex ,so that the church wants to protect them from becoming experienced .But Pullman is against their view. He says we should not feel ashamed because we are alive. (Anne-Marie Bird, Dust as Metaphor,264). I agree Pullman and Anne Bird,
keep you focused on the story. Despite Pynchon’s depiction of these aspects of daily life, many reviewers, such as Jarvis, Robson and Dirda, suggested that Pynchon critiques 2001 society for its late-capitalist consumer philosophy. That is, much has changed in our use of technology. In fact, the more technology evolves, the more reaction it provokes. By extension, America, the society, which is portrayed in Bleeding Edge, tends to believe that technology is superior and empowering but at the same time a vengeful weapon, as if it is a righteous tool for global dominance (Dinerstein 569).
This chapter presents the main concept of the thesis, the “Device Paradigm.” Chapter two offers the answer to the first and second sub-problems of the study. It inquires, why does the “Device Paradigm” replace man’s identity? How does this so-called “Device Paradigm” affect human relationships today? Borgmann established his theory of technology by looking at the postmodern society, particularly on how the human mind began to discover and invent new technologies to ease human suffering of toil and labor. Furthermore, he also elaborated that the rise of information is one of the factors why the pattern of living changed drastically from century to century and thus continuously breaking direct human relationships.
