Judging the morals in life regarding different societies expectations quickly became the focus of Equality’s thoughts, exactly as Ayn Rand had made it the importance of her own efforts. Objectivism is different from what many people live by, but it worked for Equality by the end of Anthem. It is important to realize everybody needs different things, which leads to thinking diversely. Some need self-respect to be able to give respect, and others live their life following instead of leading. It is impossible however, to say objectivism needs to vanish when it never has before, more so, the world would be unbalanced with only equal thoughts from all; there would be no innovation if all thoughts were for the same narrow concept.
Unlike Marx who views Multiculturalism from the theory heading downwards Dalrymple views multiculturalism from the ground going up. His day to day experiences prove that "not all cultural values are compatible or can be reconciled by the enunciation of platitudes." This means that although multiculturalists support the idea that people should embrace different cultures, there are many challenges that make implementation difficult. Dalrymple argues that the idea that we can co-exist in a society whereby the law doesn't favor one culture at the expense of another one is a lie. In short, the author's main argument is that some cultural values will always be superior to others in every society and the idea that all cultural values can be compatible with every ethnic group makes no
Alexia Redondo p3“Control: To direct the behavior of; to have power over; to direct the actions or function of;” (merriam-webster). The overview of the society in the novel Anthem is, the people of the society believe in equality, the opposite of individuality, and a Dystopian society which is the “perfect” society, but one citizen named equality 7-2521 does not believe in a “perfect” society. The process behind creating a collective society in Anthem requires control over education, family, and knowledge. Education is a huge roll in every person's everyday life, but in the novel Anthem the society doesn't not agree. In the novel Anthem there are a plethora amount of occupations the society controls over a individual, such as education.
Note that most anthropological observations are done through experience and ethnology. This throws the profession into turmoil and casts a doubt in upcoming intellectuals as what kind of profession they are in and what is it classified as. However this debate is more centralized around methodology rather the context of the debate which is to what extent is anthropology a science. Exploiting the methodological side of anthropology as to how anthropologists reach their findings does not mean that anthropology should not be acknowledged as a science, rather it should be used to give much credit to this exceptional form of
There are many variables that affect why people react the way they do. Henry David Thoreau states, “The only obligation which I have a right to assume, is to do at any time what I think is right.” Although a person’s human instinct is to do what is right, it is not always fair. Thoreau’s theory shows in the famous “Stanford Prison Experiment.” The “Stanford Prison Experiment, performed by Philip Zimbardo, showed how test subjects think and react. The subjects who were guards learned how to be authoritative, within reason, and in the prisoner's case, the respective inmate. It concluded that people are often unable to resist authority.
Ethnocentrism is a silent problem which many people are not aware of. Some scholars have defined ethnocentrism as “the making of judgements” based on criteria of one’s cultural groups. It is characterized by applying those criteria in judging other behaviors and belief of people who may be from the different cultural backgrounds. Bennett, a founding director and CEO of the Intercultural Development Research Institute (IDR Institute), has defined ethnocentrism as “assuming that the worldview of one’s own culture is central to all reality”. He also suggested that people who has ethnocentric mindset tend to use their own worldview to interpret other’s behavior and that the idea of a “universal truth” is usually based on one’s own value.
What is right and wrong is often very subjective. What a person values and believes in coupled what they experience helps them piece together their own moral code. Since everyone places values on a wide array of interests, topics and causes, it is impossible to determine which is the quintessential value or the correct way to think. Luckily, Kohlberg’s system of morals, marked by both morals and stages, can help distinguish those who are trying to act as the most upstanding moral citizens. This system can be used to analyze how characters progress morally throughout the course of a story, such as Huck in the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Some people argue that the cons of psychometric testing outweigh its pros. In many cases, top-notch applicants are ruled out of a job because psychometrics are used as a default barometer, with all subsequent decisions based on it. One of the biggest problems is that psychometric tests frequently contain biases that work against applicants from different cultural backgrounds, who face language barriers or even just simple anxiety about testing. They might sometimes be the best person for the job, but are automatically eliminated because of the process. Besides, the standard psychometric tests are already well known and easily accessed.
People don’t need to fit a mold that other people think they should fit. In this essay, I will argue that every culture has its preferred description of human distinction, but there is no ideal title to their racial background. The United States is known for its multicultural abundance. But to that, there are a lot of disputes concerning the proper titles to those who share more than one heritage background. The main topic that most multiracial people face is not properly fitting into their categorized groups or fulfilling into it.
Judgements are often damaged by bias which proves that the human mind is limited; this limitation itself can be classified as Cognitive bias. Cognitive Bias is a definite human shortcoming, and shows that human thinking is limited to historical observations. We say stuff that we expect to happen based on some previous experience(s), the brain also likes to chat with people who would normally agree with it on certain aspects, another limited feature that is derived from cognitive bias is the support for majority regardless of the studying the facts, it is like supporting a team that wins the most, all these actions are a result of Cognitive
For O’Brien, “social life is complex, contradicting and ambiguous” (26), which is true. Humans are way too complex to understand. I found through the social research class that one way to try to see population’s point of view is through surveys. Each survey has to be considerately thought out, and take every survey taker into consideration in order them to be comfortable answering the questions. Questions have to be broad, not being exclusive to
All in all, you have to negotiate and come to the best most logical solution to keep everyone from killing each other. Everyone has their own opinions and views, but personally I believe that, the reason so many individuals believe that the flag is used as a symbol of hatred/ racism is because that’s what they have been taught and told their entire lives. History isn’t black and white, there are so many things that NO ONE knows the actual full blown truth behind. But instead of assuming and acting like we were there and know exactly what happened, maybe we should research and actually learn our history instead of turning nothing into something and causing more problems. Finally, no I do not believe that the flag is a symbol of hatred or racism, but I do believe that some individuals do believe that, that’s what the whole history of the flag is based on.
These programs established the need to train teachers adequately so that they could implement the correct approaches that would support pedagogical theories and establish the materials and resources necessary to succeed. Assessment and responsibilities also had to be implemented in order to determinate the right standards, not to mention they fall in and out of favor with the social anti-immigrant sentiments that fluctuate with time and change with society. Therefor court legislation and state responsibility has to provide monitoring and oversight, with the state holding the responsibility for the curriculum and implementation. Even after all of these accomplishments the video also addresses that many states and districts do not acknowledge the presence of ESOL students expecting the students to carry the burden of change and not the schools. Peter Roos also mentions in the video the role of the community and the necessity to train parents and the community to advocate, participate and monitor the schools and file complaints of necessary.
“The Common Core: Far from Home” is an article that discusses the discrepancies of the common core standards, which is one of the most significant changes in our educational system. One of the reasons is that the shift to move to common core was so quiet that 79% of American voters knew nothing about it. The author states that saying that common core is based off of standards is true but can be misleading because the standards are not a curriculum and it is left up to school districts to figure out the details. However, the standards come with a testing program that is more rigorous than the NCLB act of 2001. Schools are being pushed into college and career readiness and keeping data on student performance.
