- Brave New World - 892 words
Brave New World The ideas presented in Huxleys Brave New World are expressed as fundamental principles of utopia, which could be achieved by classism. However, living in a so-called utopia, comes with a price. In this society, every beings destiny is planned out while they are still in their bottles. Depending on their caste, each person has his or her clearly defined role. Community, Identity and Stability is the motto and prime goal of Huxleys utopia. This goal can only be achieved by having a society divided into five caste social groups, because in such a society it is easier to maintain overall control of the people. Classism is the key to achieving the three goals of utopia, because it ...

Domestic Violence: Theory, Effects & Interventions The female is, as it were, a mutilated ... a sort of natural deficiency. It is not appropriate in a female character to be manly or clever. The male is by nature superior and the female inferior. Introduction Domestic violence has been present in our society and an accepted practice of many cultures for hundreds of years. Up until the late 1800's, a man in this country had the right to chastise his wife until the practice was declared illegal in two states (Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence Manual, p. B-8). Old English Common Law allowed husbands to beat their wives provided that the stick they used was not thicker than his th ...

- Domination Politics - 489 words
Domination Politics Domination Politics by Suzanne Pharr In an article In the Time of the Right: Reflections on Liberation by Suzanne Pharr, a chapter entitled Domination Politics was reviewed. Within this chapter Ms. Pharr stated that she believed there are two kinds of politics: the politics of domination and the politics of liberation. I am going to explain these and then discuss reasons why domination politics specifically, has emerged so strongly in American political circles. We need to keep in mind that both of these politics operate on the individual and public institution level. Ms. Pharr explains the politics of domination as few seeking to have power over the lives of many, gainin ...

- From Heaven To Hell - 2,058 words
From Heaven to Hell In the United States we often look to European and African countries for examples of dictatorship, civil war, inequality and genocide. In the 1990s, several countries experienced mass exodus, civil war, race war, religious war, and genocide. Yugoslavias Serbian population attempted to cleanse itself of Muslims and Croats, in Rwanda the Hutu population exterminated almost the entire Tutsi population, while in East Timor and several other countries refugees fled from the tyranny of "their" government. Less often however do we look, or even realize that our neighbors to the south are experiencing remarkably similar acts of violence, hate, and misuse of power. Bordered mostly ...

- Tracking - 1,723 words
Tracking The pounding of my heart echoes in my ears as I glance around the classroom. Adrenaline and fear mix in my veins as I look at them. These are my competitors; just like those that I face on the basketball court or on the track. I have to beat them all. John stole my highest grade, Suzie beat me on the research paper, and Casey aced the math test. Not today though, today is my day. No one will be able to beat me and I will show them who is truly king of the hill. I life my pencil and begin the test... The competition many students feel academically is hard and furious. Some students do not have the desire to compete and wish to merely go with the flow at school. For example, I once dr ...

- Understanding Behavior - 612 words
Understanding Behavior The behavior of a person can usually be explained by that person's state of mind. The external conduct is almost always directly linked to internal emotions. Knowing this fact is very beneficial to someone like a guidance counsellor because it lets him or her almost "read" the physchlogical state of a student based entirely on their behavior. In Darlene's case her behavior has been very well documented making the task of phsycological assesment a much easier job. There are many facets to Dralene's behavior, each revealing a different part of her state of mind. Judging from the way she dresses and is groomed it appears as if she comes from a family less wealthy than mos ...
