In China Mahayana the nirvana aspect of Buddhism was greatly appealing to some people but the idea of a foreign religion dominating in China made some people hate Buddhism. However, in this mix of people there were some people who were in the middle and felt neutral about Buddhism and its beliefs. There was a similar reaction in Rome with Christianity and its beliefs. Some people, mostly the lower class and Jews, found Christianity a way of escape and some even thought of as safety. On the other hand some people hated the beliefs of Christianity because it went against their norms and old traditions.
In fact the Lumassu sculpture was created install fear in those who walked in and remind them who is in charge. The vase on the other hand does not install the fear in the same manner. The fear of the government come very suudden and quite almost as if forbidden to exist. It more of a weight on the more modern culture of the Chinese people to respect and value the same tradition that their ancestor value and not break away. Breaking away or altering the vase in any way is disrespect and can be view to be very rebellious and can get you
For some people their identity is molded by society. People fear being different and being looked down upon, so they present themselves as a person who is socially acceptable. Other people do not worry about society’s opinion and present themselves as what their characteristics show them to be. Sinha Gunjan from Psychology Today states that, “DNA and life experience conspire to mold our personalities”. That
The ability for a group of humans living together and coexisting are all apart of the societal structure. We all probably wouldn't be able to operate if we didn’t have some type of structure or norms to abide by. Social structure is simply a system of socioeconomic stratification, institutions and social groups. As detailed in the book Understanding Social Problems “Imagine that society is a coin with two sides: On one side is the structure of society, and on the other is the culture of society. Although each side is distinct, both are inseparable from the whole”
Emile Durkheim thought that society was multifaceted system of consistent and co-dependent parts that work together to maintain stability. One important thing that Durkheim believed held society together was social facts. He thought that social facts consisted of feeling, acting, and thinking externally from the person and coercive power over that person. These things could include social institutions, rules, values, and norms. They have control over an individual’s life.
Unlike Anthem, societies should be individualistic. Individualism gives people the right to control their own lives
They thought the confederate flag was banned because they found it offensive. because the government didn’t like it because they thought it was a rebel banner and didn’t want it to start anything with anyone else so they banned it so there was no problem with anyone else or anything else. Also because people want it to be back up because some people don’t like it down or banned. Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died. Also, people want to have it down because there was starting to be fights about the discussion of the flag being banned or being back up.
The main reason for the letter was to try to get England to help China stop the illegal import of Opium into China. It was such a immediate concern of the Chinese because of how dangerous it was to the civilians. He even stresses how not only is it illegal in China but also England, this is shown by the quote “We have heard that in your own country opium is prohibited with the utmost strictness and severity–this is a strong proof that you know full well how hurtful it is to mankind. Since then you do not permit it to injure your own country, you ought not to have the injurious drug transferred to another country, and above all others, how much less to the Inner Land!” (Lin Zexu, pg 2).
Despite protests from the Chinese government, the American government passed the 1904 Immigration Law that made Chinese exclusion indefinite. In reaction to this, the Chinese people boycotted American goods in 19055. This movement spread to all major cities in China. And although the boycott did not provide better treatment or a new treaty for China, it forever linked the treatment of the Chinese in America to the Chinese nationalist sentiment across the nation.
This really means that Apple has not impose its ethical conduct thoroughly throughout the company. Therefore. according to multiple popular news sources, Apple does not really present as a very ethical corporation. This is on a level understandable providing the number of haters and competitors Apple has that may have had played a hand in exposing these scandals to the public. However, Apple is to blame for such appalling business conduct and ignorance in their monitoring not only Apple premises but also with
Our current President, Donald J. Trump, has spread false information many times, but in December 2012 he tweeted “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive” (1). A person with high publicity that can spread a message to millions shouldn’t spread propaganda that is anti-science. As a nation we can’t be swayed to believe that a group of individuals are being sensitive and
Although the attack was a complete surprise, the United States had had tension with Japan for decades. The United States hated how the Japanese had been treating the people in China. Japan declared war on China because they thought the only way to help their economy was to gain territory from China their neighbor. Next the U.S stopped selling oil to Japan. Although the U.S. was not close with Japan, no one expected Japan to bomb the U.S. After the attacking Roosevelt asked congress to declare war on Japan.
This is why China is in trouble. The Chinese people are taking everything at face value. No one is questioning their teachers and without questions the students do not have a full understanding. Another example of the Chinese stuck in an information drought would be one of Applebaum’s example of censorship saying, “the Chinese government also demanded that Microsoft delete the writings of a free-speech advocate from its blog software” (Applebaum 643). Microsoft is only one example of censorship in China.
NGVAC uses Logos by listing counterintuitive gun facts. NGVAC uses Ethos by criticizing the character of people who are against their beliefs: such as the NRA puppet of the month. NGVAC uses Pathos by their conduct of the law-abiding citizen blog which uses stories to stir emotions to push for tighter gun control laws. I don’t think they are reliable site because they are biased in the information that they both portray.
In 1980, a drug called lorcainide, was put into a clinical group to be tested. The drug was produced to regulate abnormal, heart rhythms that were seen as harmful to the person who experienced them. How the clinical worked was half of the patients were given the drug lorcainide while the other half were given a placebo. After testing though, the company stopped production of the drug because of commercial reasons, but still medicines, similar to lorcainide, were still being prescribed. Little did anyone know, for about twenty years, the company who produced the medicine lorcainide, hid information about the clinical trial from the public and other pharmaceutical companies.
