Assignment Nine Critical criminology is the idea that the media and the criminal justice system are the things that shape the publics view on crime. These sources influence our ideas of who commits crime and who is victimized by crime. These sources use their influence of crime to continue to control how the public sees crime and uses that to further their own agenda. Whereas, left realism is the idea that the depicted visions of crime are somewhat true. Some people are more likely to be victimized, however the media and criminal justice systems over exaggerate these crimes in order to instill higher levels of fear.
He argues that the Super-Ego is responsible for the “discontents” that human beings experience in civilisation as “The super-ego often puts severe demands on the individual that he cannot realistically met, causing great unhappiness.” (Gradesaver, Civilisation and its Discontents). When he outlines the contrast between “savage” and “civilised” beings in the book, it is clear that he is arguing human beings are unhappy because they have to reach “expectations” of society. Skepticism of the demands of society to follow the “restrictions” to human pleasure becomes a concept of questioning the demand that society puts on individuals which can be a similar comparison to the description of the political party in the modernist novel 1984 written by George Orwell. The limits that Winston, the main character who is in doubt of the government that influences the party members of the governmental leader Big Brother, finds himself miserable and psychologically tortured because his own thoughts of freedom have been limited by “thought crime” which is a law passed by Big Brother that restricts minor party members to even think about defying the
Hence, both freedom fighters and terrorists seem having this in general- they contradict that ‘independence can be triumph by very peaceful means. Both in political struggles as well as terrorism, violence are managed by a protester political group toward political powers, in an endeavour to prevent some level of evil (Whitehead, 2007). Usually, local political struggles, across which the global community might unite, would pertain to the civil rights, anti-colonialism, anti-corruption movement, efforts to increase status of the group in the facade of an aggressive government,
In his essay “Why We Procrastinate,” Estroff Marano states that procrastination damages oneself and hinders one’s progress. Moreover, he feels, as a nation, we fail to recognize the grievousness of this bad habit, and the consequences that occur with this learned behavior. According to the author alcohol consumption, deception, and lack of engagement are a few of the destructive and costly outcomes. Marano concludes that with therapy, procrastinators can replace their harmful habits with healthier ones. I agree with Marano that chronic procrastinators have undesirable patterns of behavior that prevents them from being successful and impedes them from having healthy relationships.
Anger can be partly physiological, cognitive, and psychological, and it is also pointedly ideological. Anger can be aroused due to many factors such as race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, nation, and religion (Kim1). Goldhor-lerner stated that: Anger is a signal …. It may be a message that we are being hurt, that our rights are being violated; that our needs or wants are not being adequately met or simply that something is not right ( 1). According to Seneca, anger is a bad thing that can destroy the universe, and he argued that one had to get rid of anger in order to achieve a state of mind not subject to emotions (Kim 2).
First of all what does it mean by being ‘abnormal’. Any behavior far away from the set codes of behavior is abnormal. The actions and ideas which are in contrast opposition to the set standards of society and question its predominating ideology and living are considered abnormal. Some strange behaviors actually make the society to think on their long prevailing set standards and subsequently have the power to create a milieu of rebel. Such a changed behavior threatens the ‘normality’ of the society and is capable of influencing its long convincing inhabitants against its very law and system.
'Moral panic ' refers to the public and political reaction to minority or marginalized individuals and groups who appear to be some kind of threat to consensual values and interests (Jewkes 2015) Societies will be subject to moral panic every so often. This is when an event, person or group of people appear to be seen as a threat to societal values and interests (Cohen, 1972). A moral panic is a feeling of fear that is spread to a large quantity of people usually through the media. It is created when an incident or person that is reported and viewed as being an evil threat to society. The media can create the idea of moral panic and there are types of people who are more likely to be targets of a moral panic such as, those who commit serious offences, those who behave antisocially, those who chose a different lifestyle from what is considered the 'normal ' and people who fail to conform consensually.
That bias arises from deep-rooted myths, but is also likely influenced by press releases. Greer (2011) argues that the main purpose of media coverage is not to ‘reflect’ objective truth. In his view, media coverage can cause moral panics, and plays an important part in constructing ideology and influencing social attitudes to issues of law and order. Therefore, the attitude towards people who are charged with sexual offence depends on how society has stigmatized it. When print sources describe a suspect as a devil, it may sharpen the debate over sexual offence cases.
Words like affairs, fake news has damaged relationships because they distort and miscommunicate messages. We can communicate effectively by mastering the impact of communication barriers on speeches. The principle six communication barriers are: Frist, Cliché. Overusing a word, phrase or a familiar expression becomes monotonous, boring or indicating lack of inspiration, hence miscommunicating meaning (McLean, 2010, pp. 58).
The people, who are not able to exert their force in decision making process, go for aggressive means of expressing their opinion. As a result we see disorder in the society. This situation creates the poverty, terrorism and collective pain of the society. Extremism can be of different types, it can be ethnic, linguistic but the most sever kind of extremism
