The new electronic system not being implemented is like going through life with a contagious deadly disease, you have the money for the cure, but yet you complain, sulk, and feel sorry for yourself instead of going to get the cure. It makes perfect sense to implement this new electronic system and nobody should think
All humanistic studies are conducted unscientifically. This is a strength of this is that they are less artificial in the way they conduct their studies, this in turn makes the tests more ecologically valid. However a weakness of this is that they have no objective results and they are unable to control variables. This makes causality harder to establish and means psychologists are unable to predict what is going to happen. The humanistic approach represents the ‘healthy half of psychology’ and suggests that we are all with good intentions.
In Ray Bradbury's short story "There will come Soft Rains" technology negatively influences society. Ray Bradbury demonstrates the technology can and will lead to war, pain, and laziness. To begin, mankind’s misuse of technology leads to their end. Humans were so thoughtless and selfish that they fought until "a radioactive glow could be seen for miles" (Bradbury 90). Mankind was consumed with technology they ended up not thinking of the damage they could cause with a nuclear war.
The way technology has driven the last half of a century has changed life astronomically. Everyday people crave and desire the next big thing on the market. Whether it is the hybrid car or touch screen phone, the need for something more leaves room in life for unhappiness when those items are not obtained. Lao-Tzu strongly argued that when people do not want anything, they are okay with living simple. This is beyond the truth of today.
The sport that changes its rules to allow the use of performance enhancing drugs will be attacked as a freak show or worse.” In a way, the article contradicts itself, but at the same time shows a well thought out, balanced argument. The idea that sports should simply change their rules to adjust to changing times is one that rarely gets any thought, but this article makes a strong case for the rule makers to give some thought as to what exactly needs to change. “A Sporting Chance” brought up many points that go relatively unthought-of in the sports community.
new Brave New World is a book that centres on the idea that if we allow science to take control of too much of our lives, then science will control us. It is not simply a warning of what could happen to society if things go wrong, it is a satirical look of the society that we live in as well as the society that Aldus Huxley, the author, lived in. From the incompatibility of happiness and truth, shown through the use of soma, to the attempt that the world state makes to control and muffle any attempt by a citizen to gain any sort of scientific truth, we see how serious the matter is when it comes to a society controlled by technology and/or science. It causes one to wonder if the theme of two of the most bloody and ruthless pieces of literature,
No one who speaks from within the Tao could reject it on that account: 'εν δε φαει και 'δλεσσου. But it has not yet come to that. There are theoretical difficulties in the philosophy of Gaius and Titius. However subjective they may be about some traditional values, Gaius and Titius have shown by the very act of writing The Green Book that there must be some other values about which they are not subjective at all. They write in order to produce certain states of mind in the rising generation, if not because they think those states of mind intrinsically just or good, yet certainly because they think them to be the means to some state of society which they regard as desirable.
It is surprising that the future is depicted this way by Huxley because it seems like more of a degeneration of mankind rather than an advancement. The drug soma is used excessively to take away any amount of discomfort or anger experienced by anyone in the New World. They use soma as a way to prevent the people from becoming curious and acting according to human nature. Serious emotion like pain is suppressed to avert them from following their natural inclinations to seek refuge in others. Personal relations and bonding have been replaced by this artificial drug.
Whitman wroted that the governments role was to be "... not of an officious intermeddler in the affairs of men, but of a prudent watchman who prevents outrage," that is strengthened by his underlying logic that "... although government can do little positive good to the people, it may do an immense deal of harm." (Whitman) Simply put, if the governemnt has less has to do with meddling in peoples affairs and rights then society will be better off. Also that the role of the government is to act as a protector of smaller groups and individuals from bigger groups so everyone will be happy. The basis of laissez-faire is that the bigger the government factor, being it’s rights and powers, the worse of the country is. William Graham Sumner was another supporter of the laissez-faire idea.
Sure people can say what they want about the quality and delivery system of a single payer plan, but if they remember Canada uses a single payer plan and its citizens life expectancy increased drastically that same year. It is understandable that some ignorant people are afraid of change but change is needed in order for the world to function. If the single payer plan was insufficient, unsustainable, and inequitable the government and nurses would not be behind it. “Many liberals in America dream about single payer plans. Even if they acknowledge that a single-payer plan cannot be enacted, they still think it’s the best reform.” (Emanuel Ezekiel p.38) Emanuel doesn’t believe that the single payer plan is going to be effective but he does think that America should have a Universal health care, he seems to think that the single payer plan is for liberals.
