We may be affected psychologically by how others view our appearances, parental relationships, and other prevalent social issues such as racism, sexism, and homophobia. Escaping the unrealistic standards of society means diverging from anything that limits self-confidence and living a happy
A name that can be named is not enduring a name.” (1). This signifies that if one can decipher his or her way of life through the medium of language, then his or her lifestyle holds simplistic, materialistic qualities that do not follow the Way. Due to this statement, one can conclude that spoken or written language that has the ability to be easily described maintains mainstream characteristics, hence deeming a societal, constructed impact on one’s life; a fatal flaw to practicing Daoism. Though not directly stated, this establishes criticism to Western civilization, for those individuals place high esteem on their social standing, lexicon, and singular impact on society.
The simplicity of the cartoon does a fine justice to offer an insight on the intricacy and the visibility of the segregated social groups in our society. The cartoon elucidates the partitioning of different groups based on power, resource, and status with those who encompass the elite group, those who encompass the unjustified and underrepresented groups, and those who encompass the intermediate group that either oscillates towards one side or remains stagnant and satisfied with the status they already occupy. The big fish serves as a paradigm for those civilians occupying the elite group. The members in this group, according to Miller, establish the hegemonic society and attain the greatest influence in determining the culture’s overall outlook
Sula’s various decisions, throughout the story, reflect her moral views while placing her at odds with Medallion citizen’s complacent ways. Fear and frightening experiences cause Sula to perform egregious actions towards herself and others without thinking of the effects that may follow. Nel further explains that Sula behaves “emotionally and irresponsibly” ” and these sorts of thoughts completely contradict Medallion’s way of life (101). While this may be the case for Sula and her community, post-modernism encourages and even supports the creation of one’s own morals understanding that every person cannot have one like moral value. Circumstances and experience shapes one’s perspective on basic moral principles and makes them change it to better
In other words, emotions can either be good or bad. I feel that this is something that should be avoid because, when we refer to certain emotions as good or bad, we develop this concept that it is right or wrong to feel a certain way. This may result in some individuals feeling ashamed to feel “bad.” We have created a society where you force positivity upon people and shame those that are not positive. In doing this, we create a strict environment that fails to consider the diversity in emotion.
A rejection of a norm affects those who partake in the deviance and those who face deviants in many ways. According to Durkheim, deviancy is a part of social organization that is necessary for a cohesive society. If there were not deviancy then people would not value the culture and norms in a society, as deviance aids to affirm them. Deviant acts help to define the boundaries for morals and norms; people learn the difference between a social norm and deviancy by labeling people. Deviancy helps to shape what is acceptable in society and how people control how they wish to be viewed or labeled by what deviance they partake in and what they show the
Right Wing Authoritarianism The political compass determined that I am a right wing authoritarian. I, personally, do not agree with what the political compass assigned me to. If you are a right wing authoritarian, you are more likely to submit to authorities that you perceive as established and legitimate, you adhere to social conventions and social norms, you are hostile in your attitude towards people who don 't follow the norms, and you value a uniform society and are willing to use group authority and coercion to achieve said uniformity. I do not think that I submit to authority, especially if it isn’t legitimate.
legitimacy is banned in the variation of definitions from one society to the next Another strength is that social action recognises the flexible nature of meanings. As such social action takes account of changing norms and values both within societies as well as amongst them. A weakness of social action is that it has been criticised for outlining criminal and deviant behaviour merely on the base of how it is outlined by individuals in society, for example killing someone purely for pleasure would be deemed deviant behaviour in any society. Another weakness would be that social action is very deterministic due to that once an individual becomes deviant, the only real option is that their deviant behaviour purely becomes
This seems to be a “totalitarian style” of forcing people to blindly follow what the superior said, no matter they agree or not, or else they will be punished. This indicates that the superior do not tolerate other opinion and deprive the freedom of people to their own belief and thoughts, making the superior an absolute
In Rand’s Anthem, O’Neill’s “Hairy Ape”, Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter, and Miller’s “Crucible”, an individual’s bad choices determine the reputation assigned by a conformed society. These four books have characters that have different personalities from each other but still end up sharing similar problems within a conformed society. A conformed society is where people follow certain rules just because they are afraid of the consequences that come with not following the rules. Conformity impacts the way that someone thinks because of the influences around them. It can be a good thing, but in these character’s live they make bad choices that impact their reputation.
All the problems stated earlier are some of the reasons why they want to remain outsiders to society. All these reasons focus on the negative of integrating into society. They know that if they integrate into society, they risk their beliefs being absorbed in it and possibly losing their cultural identity entirely. However, there are benefits to remaining an
