Only discipline, causing pain to the four-year-old (and by pain, I do not necessarily mean physical pain) teaches him/her what is allowed.” This comment backs what I stated about a child learning to respect authority. From a more scientific approach in a Newsweek article that followed a nurturing study related to spankings conducted by Drs. Jennifer Lansford and Ken Dodge revealed some insightful details on the effect on corporal punishment in early age development this is apparent when the article states
This shows how powerful and terrifying the human brain is. The human brain named itself, it has all the power to reason and expound upon how the universe was created but we still don’t entirely understand how it works and that makes us very scared, and that fear makes us dangerous. Society uses the power of the human mind to justify the enslavement of others, not much can be more terrifying. We meddle in other people/countries affairs and cause wars and chaos all for the sake of being the victors, all so we can create truth. But what about that one child who opted out.
In The Folly of Fools, leading evolutionary theorist Robert Trivers argues that in order to deceive others, we often deceive ourselves first. To lie to others, we hide our intent to deceive and the details of our deception; we selectively recall information and bias our arguments. Trivers marshals evidence–from immunology to neuroscience to group dynamics to the relationships of parents and children–of an arms race between deceiver and deceived at every level of biological
“Flowers for Algernon” Argumentative Essay Charlie should not have been subject to the experimental surgery in Daniel Keyes’s “Flowers for Algernon.” The operation had many cruel side effects to an isolated social reject with a below-average IQ. Because of his impaired cognitive abilities, Charlie had to face substantial, tangible societal conflicts. Not only did he have disaccord with society, he was used as an experiment; Charlie was a test subject first and a sentient human second. As a genius, Charlie realized the experiment’s folly. Despite Charlie’s strife with society, he was wrongly used for the experiment.
Introduction Informative, contemplative, and different are three words to describe “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” by Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco and Carola Suárez-Orozco from Rereading America. “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” talks about unauthorized immigration. More specifically, this source talks about the other side of the issue of unauthorized immigrants; the human face of it all. “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” depicts the monster from one of Jeffrey Jerome Cohen’s thesis in the article, “Monster Culture (7 Theses).” The monster seen in the source “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” is the one that Cohen talks about in his fourth thesis, “The Monster Dwells at the Gates of Difference.” Cohen’s fourth thesis talks about the differences among groups of people in areas of race, gender, etc. and how those differences can create monsters in society.
The human race has evolved as a unit to become a leery race. Rather than join others in arm to share the same ideologies, welcome foreigners into a conglomerate and believe what is told, humans find it necessary to question validity and carry ideas of skepticism. There is no better example than the western world’s political climate at this very moment, those who have been residing in the United States are currently being deported because a malinformed and dubious leadership has become wary of others. However one may question, where has this human trait stemmed from? The answer lies within the race itself; through the manipulation of rhetoric and the formation of lies, individuals are growing to adopt cultural views that are built from fallacy.
He began to understand the distinction between his own rights and wrongs on his own and questioned “the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong” (69). I believe one can decipher their own values, even if everyone thinks differently. Huck negated the public by feeling a dedication to his own beliefs and deciding his own morals. To emphasize the anxiety of living as an outsider in the community, Colonel Sherburn yelled, “Why don’t your juries hang murderers? Because they’re afraid the man’s friends will shoot them in the back, in the dark” (110).
Xenophobia in The English Patient The English Patient makes the reader ask themselves questions such as, “why do humans form nations?” This book has an opinion on nations, and the opinion is; humans form nations to give themselves the sense of belonging and community; this can become problematic when certain populations look down on other groups of people solely based on their nationality. The effects of xenophobia on individuals is explored through Kip and Almasy, they both undergo a nationality change. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are also explored in this book from a sociological perspective giving an opinion that the bombings happened due to xenophobia. I argue, the novel, the English Patient demonstrates the effects of xenophobia on individuals and on large populations. The act of a large community of people antagonizing other segments of the world’s population has been happening since the dawn of humanity.
Of course, not every white policeman or policewoman is racist or targeting people of color, but often people overlook the details and start arguments about the little things. This has lead to the Black Lives Matter movement, which has thankfully helped spread awareness of the issue at hand. Another issue is discrimination because of religion. Recently, the most attacked group of religious people is Muslims. Because of ISIS, too many Americans think that all Muslims are dangerous terrorists, which is completely untrue.
The novel Lord of the Flies, is a great example of how civilization is the only reason we keep ourselves from doing certain things. The novel, “Soon becomes a parable about the inherent evil in human nature, reflected in the natural brutality of these boys once they are away from civilization.” (Junior). People's perspective of others judgement holds them back. Along with people's morals, it makes them really think about their decisions that are selfish instead of not putting in society's perspective and doing it in a blink of an eye.This not only applies to adults but also children, which can be seen in the novel. Golding “...asks how superior we are to savages and he points to the superficiality of our civilization; indeed it seems to be powerless against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact the expression of the evil that pervades the world.” (Michot).
As people that become killers and sociopaths ,psychopaths and all other disorders that come along with them as they are made of what scientist like to call nature vs nurture which is events like genes, environment and personal choices have to say what that person becomes but If you have a child no matter what genes they have and you treat them with kindness and care they will become higher in society but if you hurt a child and tell them they are useless they will become hateful and hate everything and everyone in their life. One of America 's most famous killers Ted Bundy had a weird life from his environment. When he was born his grandparents said that his mother was his sister and his grandparents were his parents in order to hide the grandparents and mother 's secret. He was born out of a hospital so if he ever found out it probably traumatized him and then becomes a spree murderer even though there was no confession of abuse from parent and or grandparents there must have been things of that nature in the house that tripped his mind maybe that was enough to trip his mind and start
Americans reacted in different ways to the events by expressing anti-immigrant nativism, a fear of communism and patriotism to attack these fears. A hatred for immigrants caused nativism to spread throughout the nation. Immigrants who believed in socialism were deported, without trials and some thought, against the ideas of liberty the U.S. stood for (Doc 9). Some immigrants faced accusations that led to jail and even execution
Many innocent Japanese American citizens were affected by Executive Order 9066. President Roosevelt ordered Executive Order 9066 out of desperation and fear. Every american citizen was on edge, and was scared after Pearl Harbor. Slowly, the fear and discrimination of Japanese Americans began. The mindset of the feared Americans was incorrect, but they saw no other option besides internment camps.
