“Unsung Heroes” follows the same line of thought. It enumerates explicitly false heroes that are often found among former US presidents and military people. Zinn reminds us of the crimes each of them has committed. He suggests that these undue idols be taken off their pedestals and be replaced by real heroes, people who have sacrificed something to make a change, even if it was a small one. Being a war-opponent and social activist, Howard Zinn’s most likely intention in writing “Unsung Heroes” was to educate people about the mistakes (and deliberate lies) that are, in his opinion, very common in the perception of American history.
It ultimately satirizes the security of that particular TV show – where cameras constantly monitor a series of contestants and there security is inflicted on. The satirisation of security is later shown in the use Lisa and her expression of “How many sacrifices are we willing to make in the name of security?”. She asks the rhetorical question on the increasing inflict that terrorism has on American society. She poses this to the audience and satirises how feared piracy and danger is that is relevant to the present
Ethical Issues – The Informant Movie Overview The Informant movie is a comedy drama based on facts from a nonfiction book “The Informant” by journalist Kurt Eichenwald. The movie portrays the story of whistleblower Mark Whitacre who, influenced and coaxed by his wife, helped FBI uncover the price fixing practices of the company Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). The employees who become informants are the people willing to reveal information for personal benefits or to get even with others in personal conflicts. On the other hand whistleblowers are persistent individuals ready to risk their own interest and benefit to expose some transgression as a moral assertion. These people generally act outside normal communication process of organization and put information through to right audience about the unethical, illegal conduct or actions of the organization adversely impacting public interest and/or social obligation in general.
Females in these countries are victimized usually by their brothers, uncles, husbands, and/or fathers. Women are slaughtered after they bring 'shame' to their family, this ideology suggests "blood restores honour". Women are targeted if they run away from home to elope, if they refuse marriage that the family declares is 'righteous', if a woman loses her virginity before marriage, if they are hiding their own acts of incestuous rape, or even if that woman is raped. In any family, each individual has the right to feel safe with their loved ones, to feel respect and love from their family members, and to feel comfortable with their family to obtain an expressive relationship. Unfortunately, this ideology blinds the cognitive process of family members as individuals value their own reputation and honour above the live of their family members.
Those objectives range from distrust of the government, to hatred of a specific type of person or people or their beliefs. They organize around civil rights, war, feminism and other political themes. Domestic terrorism was again visited after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York when anthrax attacks occurred in Washington, New York, and Florida. Top FBI and CIA officials believe that the anthrax attacks on Washington, New York, and Florida were likely the work of one or more extremists in the United States (Woodard, B., Eggen, D., 2001). And the FBI said in June 2004 that eco-terrorism -- acts of violence, sabotage or property damage motivated by concern for animals or the environment -- was the nation's top domestic terrorism threat.
Fear Over Privacy Security is supreme for the development of any nation. Today we are living in a world where security is increasingly being threatened by terrorists across the globe. The National Security Agency (NSA) working for privacy protection now has become a threat to American citizens. NSA is keeping track of every American’s internet use, activities, and phone calls which is the violation of fourth amendment, Right of Privacy, of US constitution. Varvel is against this and uses privacy as main theme of his cartoon.
Victims of Intimate Violence Angela Anderson CJ3365 November 27,2011 Abstract In this paper, the reader will have insight on two individual stories of Tina Watson and Minh Dang. One is a stunning story of a murdered newly wed bride while the other is a story of child abuse and sexual exploitation. These stories are an example of Intimate Violence. In which the perpetrators are loved ones. One may wonder how a husband or a parent can commit crimes such as these.
Women subjected to this type of attack almost never survive, but it is clearly a horrific death and has been the subject of a number of campaigns in recent years. However, because bride burning is seen as a traditional way of getting rid of an unwanted bride in some parts of the world (even where divorce is an option), many families simply report that the woman has been killed by an 'exploding stove' and there is no further investigation (BBC). In India, the country that seems most affected by bride burning, attempts have been made to outlaw the practice. In 1961, the Dowry Prohibition Act was
These people had political motivation as the governmental leaders of the country were not satisfactory to those in the revolution. Similarly, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) was a movement in Ireland in the late nineties that saw a great deal of home grown terrorism until the IRA declared a cease-fire in its feud with those in support of the split between Northern Ireland and The Irish Free State (Pike, 2005). The terroristic activities in Ireland were political of nature and required the use of brute force. It is my opinion that the terrorists found in the Western hemisphere viewed those aforementioned terrorists as influential visionaries who accomplished a great deal many goals. The rebels of the early days of the United States, for example, can be considered terrorists as
It is all about women to murder their husbands and try to get away with it. The show gives the motives of why these women kill their husbands, it’s either because they have another lover, they want his life insurance, or custody of their children. Although it’s an interesting show, what does it teach or show the individuals that are watching it? That people in the world can commit such a horrific crime, just for money or an unsatisfying relationship? For me, I find it terrifying that someone could murder another human being so gruesomely, such as poisoning them, shooting, or hitting them repeatingly over the head with a baseball bat.
