With the purpose of promoting equality, the government’s goal is to establish the concept of welfare state, civil rights and equality under the law. Under welfare state, the government provides social services that aid the disabled, unemployed and the poor by taxing citizens. By establishing equality under the law, it will not allow anyone to be above the law and therefore, they all must follow the same laws. Although there are different types of governments, they all share the first two main purposes of government except for the third purpose since not all government promote equality. As humans, we want order and need an authority to
Eliot’s work also declared that the individual elements of the artist should be filtered out of their work, and the artist should only serve as a “medium” for transmitting the words (148). In today’s society, however, identity markers and individualism are at a peak, and the rise of technology no doubt exacerbates our obsession with crediting the individual for their work. In the case of Mar’s, the criticism is not focused on his work, but the man, Bruno Mars, his identity. In the discussion of “cultural appropriation” we place the individual on trial, but that barely addresses the larger issue: the societal privileging of the individual. French Philosopher Michel Foucault asserts in his essay “What is an Author?” that “The coming into being of the notion of the ‘author’ constitutes the privileged moment of individualization in the history of ideas (157).
The Prime Directive In the novel Anthem by Ayn Rand the society that she portrays lives under one injunction, or prime directive, for everyone to be equal. There are numerous rules and controls instituted to help keep the citizens’ in order and while some of them seem to be beneficial, others are constricting the basic rights that every person should have. The one thing that all of the rules do share in common is the restriction of a person's freedom, individuality, and life in general. Ayn Rand knew that by writing this novel, it would spark many conflicting views about equality and liberty in today's world. To start off, the rules exist to keep every person in the society equal to all of their fellow men and women.
As such, equality law seeks to remedy a problem through imposing certain injunctions in order to solve a problem. However, one important aspect of the 7th amendment is that it bars the judges from overruling the findings of a jury unless there was such a violation of a common law; hence, in all but a few cases, the ruling of the jury will be regarded as a violation of the 7th amendment. Further, the 7th amendment makes specifications that the jury has to be unanimous in all civil cases. Therefore, in my own view, the 7th amendment is beneficial since it protects people from the rights that are abused by the government. It achieves this by ensuring that the government cannot simply lock people up in jails or prions; hence by doing so it protects the citizens from unnecessary tyranny by the government.
The Civil Rights Act outlawed discrimination towards people’s race, sex, religion, color, or national origin. This act didn’t just help African-Americans, it also benefited women, latinos, and whites. It created an equal employment opportunity to all citizens of the U.S. and additionally excluded discrimination in the workplace. Segregation was also put to an end due to this Act being passed. The Civil Rights Act was caused by many things including the Brown v Board of Education case, Rosa Parks arrest, Little Rock school desegregation, and the march on Washington.
People are being made equal by beauty, knowledge, and strength, when traits should not be equal. People all are different in their own unique way, so why should anyone take away who they are? The differences make everyone who they are, and that determines how they will live their life, and living a good life, should be done by themselves only. Equality should be given for rights, not anything else. Censorship is being used the unrightful way.
Anti discriminatory practice is any practice meant to counter discrimination based on race, class, gender,disability, etc and promote equality by introducing anti discrimination policies in care settings. As much as we’d like to think that discrimination within care settings did not exist, sadly it does and it’s an issue that affects many individuals each day. The government recognise that it is important to ensure that there are laws in place in order to ensure that people get the right treatment. The Equality Act 2010’ states that all individuals must be treated fairly and equally.This law is there to ensure that people are given care which meets their needs and is in their best interests. Professionals must ensure that they are giving people access to the services that they need and require, providing advice and
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlaws discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, color, or national origin. This act helped minorities to more easily defend their rights as Americans and to contest organizations that sought to rob them of those rights. Title II of the act holds that all people shall enjoy public accommodations equally, outlawing places such as restaurants from
Colorblindness, as defined by the American Psychologist Association, is a sign of being fair-minded and is a strategy designed to manage diversity by reducing racial differences (Neville, Awad, & Brooks, 2013). This ideology has been widely used in an attempt to eradicate the discomfort experienced by racial prejudice. However, by incorporating a colorblind curriculum into the education system, you send a message that we are “all alike” and that the uniqueness of a culture is irrelevant and unappreciated. Furthermore, the course of study will typically gravitate towards the dominant culture’s point of view. This will result in a lack of interest for minorities who recognize that their “color”, or race, is indeed evident and is an essential component of their identity.
These restrooms can also benefit families by allowing family members of multiple genders use the same restroom. The anti-discriminatory law should have explicit definitions of discrimination and it should only apply to public places such as work, school, stores, and businesses. An anti-discriminatory law like this is essential because the current laws that transgender people must try to use to defend themselves from discrimination, such as the ADA and Titles VII and IX, are not specifically for transgender individuals. Transgender people should have a guarantee to the right to equal protection under the law, but there is no current law that provides this guarantee. Louis Michael Seidman, a constitutional law professor, describes this type of dilemma when he says, “The point of equal protection review is to adjust the legal mechanism so that it ‘fits’ the state of the world.
