In the essay, “In Defense of Prejudice”, by Jonathan Rauch, he defines the position opposite to his own as “purism”. He states that the public does not know enough about the term and it has yet to be properly identified. Rauch states that “purism” cannot be justified without the traces of prejudice to be completely removed from society, but that prejudice will never be removed from society due to continuous perceptions that people have. Throughout the essay Rauch defines purism, and it can be attained that the public does not know what pluralism is, what it means to be politically correct, and what society really is without constant prejudice. In this essay, those concepts will be explored with Rauch’s position on them, and what he believes.
Though, I have good control on my emotional displays, at times I find certain emotions sticking for a little time in my conscious memory. I am an eternal optimist, thus tend to view things in different lights. I react less on events that others find serious, thus to some, I may give a non-serious perception, one lacking concern, and one lacking the intellect capacity to judge situations.

Bonsanti appears to be driven by basic humanity and a belief in general equality. While McDaniel’s response to the question is very specific and personally driven; he makes no reference to the basic counter argument or hardcore fact.

To put myself on the edge, I would say Sedaris’s main claim was sometimes no one has control of something or anything around you. You have to consider there is not always someone to blame when something doesn’t go exactly the way you want it. That is not “god”, the universe nor fate, but it just simply happens. I also believe his claim was that there are many ways to deal with the feeling of having no control. Like the educator, you can find someone to blame and demand that they find a reasonable answer for you, even if it is nowhere in their power.
1. Be Proactive This is the ability to control your environment, rather than have it control you, as is so often the case. the ability to have Self determination, choice, and the power to decide response to stimulus, conditions and circumstances is all what you need to control your life.

The narrator subconsciously rejects his own identity to hide behind the idealistic façade of Tyler Durden, a representation of the identity the narrator strives for “All the ways you wish you could be, that's me. I look like you wanna look… I am smart, capable, and I am free in all the ways that you are not.” Ironically, the narrator is unable to fulfil any of his emotional needs until he accepts his true identity, and sheds that of
Comprehension is the ability to summarize or interpret. Application is nothing more than demonstrating or showing someone, then your analysis is your ability to breakdown or distinguish and sometimes clarify. Synthesis is modifying or intergrating with something else. Then you have the evaluation where you measure, test and or decide on what to use or not use. The connection between critical thinking and ethics is that there are no general hard and fast rules regarding the application of ethics in various situations, which is especially pertinent considering the fact that what may be ethical in one situation may be considered unethical in another context.
