Swartz points out how the business of human trafficking starts and how the immigrants end up becoming victims of various social injustices such as slavery in a form of prostitution. Third world countries such as Thailand and other Asian countries are the major sources of the discussed immigrants. Due to harsh economic conditions, the victims decide to pursue greener pastures in developed countries oblivious of the trouble they are involving themselves in. As Swartz exposes, there is a network of human traffickers who operate locally as well internationally. The responsible authorities don’t have efficient policies and laws to regulate this business, thereby facilitating human trafficking to uncontrollable levels.
In this day and age no one should live in the conditions that the third world people are subjected to. #2 Crime affects us all on some level rather it is directly or indirectly. Street crimes such as drug dealing, robbery, and murder are high in urban areas, and poverty stricken areas causing unsafe living conditions. Innocent people being killed in the crossfire of a drug deal gone bad. Parents strung out on drugs, which leads to child neglect and child abuse.
It posits that those addicted to alcohol or other drugs are weak-minded, are morally deficient, or wanting in character. The development of this model was preceded by a period of rampant socio-economic problems such as poverty, homelessness, and child neglect during the Industrial Revolution in major towns. It was also a time when the sale of rum and gin was rife in London. In an attempt to dissociate themselves from irresponsible behaviors associated with alcohol and other drug abuse, the middle class quickly pointed out that addiction was a sign of moral weakness only common amongst the lower classes. They argued that the lower classes were deficient in
In the text there is an outbreak of cholera, also referred to as a “plague”. The Venetians have decided to keep this plague a secret from tourists as tourism is a main contribution to their total revenue. Gustav Acshenbach has figured out something is going on, he asks around but almost everyone is willing to lie in order to protect their own interests. The choice can be considered wrong behaviour, many people may die because they did not know about the disease. Keeping this secret could be considered murder, which is against the law and morally very wrong.
(Sherman & Salisbury, 149) Lack of knowledge on children's and woman's healthcare resulted in a low birthrate. " These factors combined with other cultural issues- the desire to restrict children to keep from reducing inheritance, for example- help explain why Rome had so much trouble maintaining its population." (Sherman & Salisbury, 150) Heavy taxes necessary to support the government and a slave dependant society were major economic reasons that brought doom for Rome. " Perhaps not suprisingly, Romans often feared their slaves. The Stoic philosopher Seneca (48 BCE-65 CE) wrote that " The last of your slaves holds over you the power of life or death."
People aren't willing to accept change and theirs not much you can do in the 1930's to change that because it was "sociality acceptable" not to. Racism was given to its full potential in this novel by displaying that of Tom Robinson being charged on a crime that he did not commit. He is accused of raping a white women by one of the most untrustworthy people in the town. This was just another accusation in this time but ended as most did, with the wrong outcome chosen because of social inequality. Differences in social status are explored largely through the overcomplicated social status.
He is almost completely shunned from the town because he is trying to help a black man accused of rape. Mayella had told Tom, “I said come here, nigger, and bust up this chiffarobe for me, I gotta nickel for you.” (p.241) She had tricked him to coming over to her. Then that’s about the time when she accuses him of rape. He had felt sorry for her, which is why he was falsely accused in the first place. Courthouse segregation was one of the biggest bits of racism I found in this book.
Even when it came to more accomplished African diplomats, they too were mistreated simply due to the color of their skin. Maltreatment occurred across the United States, as people of African descent were rejected from restaurants, social clubs and decent housing was denied (Romano, 2000, P.551-552). This mix of injustice begin to create a melting pot of frustrations and civil unrest. At the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement were two
The only way money was made was selling yourself for money. Which just spread the disease quicker. Discrimination then took its course because the women who were selling themselves for money were seen as the primary carriers of then disease. “Most hospitals in the region are empty, not because of a local lack of treatable pathology: rather, patients have no money to pay for such care” (Paul Farmer pp1). With the lack of an educating system to make the people more aware of this disease, a steadily poor economy, and extreme poverty, the disease will continue to take its
Tutorial 2 Question 1 Summary of Case Study: The Poorest Continent The opening case focuses on the lack of economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa. The case suggests that Africa is poor in part due to corrupt government and bad economic policies. The case highlights the importance of property rights in stimulating investment and economic growth. Because property rights are either not established or simply not respected in much of Sub-Saharan Africa, it is difficult for property owners to raise capital to start businesses. Further, there is little incentive to make the investments necessary to make the properties more efficient and productive.
