The Indigenous people were often forced to give up their lands and take the agreement. This agreement has negatively affected the culture of the natives. Even though the natives seem to have good benefits such as having a “reserve” and they are granted with subsidies, this causes problems with the culture the natives have had for hundreds of years. This is because with subsidy the natives Is diverted away from growing food or native responsibilities. To this day the natives still have problems with agreements and treaties and most of all their way of life is impacted hugely by international interactions.
The population of the natives was lowered to an amount they left them without enough people to sustains their lifestyles, they didn’t have enough people to hunt, gather, and farm, and they didn’t have the elders to keep their traditions and values alive. With the fast spread of disease the natives had almost no choice but to join other tribes for protection and to sustain their way of life to even a small extent. The article also spoke about how the natives had become too reliant on the settlers for trade and had slowly become too twisted into the trade. “Liquor, for example,
This made the Romans prone to injuries and “because they have no armor, think about running and not fighting” (Document B). Because of the loss of troops from the loss of armour, the Roman army’s numbers diminished. No soldiers were drafted since many groups were exempted from joining the army. This lessened the defences and security of Rome, and Rome became weaker. Another primary reason of Rome’s decline was a series of foreign invasions.
Therefore the failure of the league in the 1930s could be down to one or more of many factors. Firstly, the great depression contributed to the league’s failure as America traded with many nations therefore after the Wall Street crash, trade and industry worldwide was damaged. The stock market collapsed on the 29th of October 1927 which lead to the great depression which pulled many countries in to economic crisis and also lead to extremism, dictators and fascists in Japan, Italy and Germany as desperate times called for desperate measures. This therefore lead to the league’s failure because countries became more selfish such as Japan as it defied the league and consequently left the league for personal gain of China which made it even more difficult for the league to achieve its aims of world peace as Japan attacked Manchuria in 1931. The depression also made countries less likely to cooperate as they began to ignore the league following the defiant precedent made by Japan.
If a person could not pay the fine, they would be an outcast with in the social tribe and isolated, they would be prevented from participating in religious rites and lose their civil rights too. Celts were a civilisation based on honour and acceptance, those committing crime had to redeem themselves back into the kinship of their tribe. The fear of losing their religious rites and their standing within the social tribe was enough to deter most Celts, to be isolated and seen as relegated to a lower member of the tribe would almost certainly deter reoffending. The Celts would impose sanctions upon law breakers as a community punishment, today this could compare to our system of community payback, whereby a person who has committed a crime would be ordered to do a certain amount of unpaid work as a way of repaying his community for his wrong doing. Until the payback had been fulfilled the person remains unpunished and not part of the rest of the law abiding society.
Divorce is the legal termination of a marriage and for various reasons; divorce has become much more common in society. These reasons include secularisation, the changes in the expectations of adulthood, changes in the economic state of women and the changes in laws that concern divorce, specifically the Divorce Reform Act. I am going to examine these reasons. Firstly, one reason for changes in the divorce rate since 1969 is the change in how divorce is perceived by society. For example, 50 years ago divorce was considered to be shameful and dishonourable, as you had failed to find a suitable partner.
It is mentioned in the film that there are many foreign workers in Bahrain occupying positions that pay well. But that many indigenous Arabs in that nation are unemployed. They live in substandard homes and are denied basic services. There is also the atrocious story of a choice piece of land being developed as a high-end luxury area that was sold by the government to the Khalifa family for a single dinar. If the government does not take measures to quell these desires and the feelings of resentment aroused by these inequalities, then people will clamor for social change, and this is precisely what led to the uprisings in 2011.
Social closure means an individual is unable to move up or down the social ladder. There have been many changes in society that contribute to social closure such as the decline in heavy industries and an increase in service industries. This is coupled with the decline in traditional class alignment and people’s perceptions of themselves and class. And in modern day society we still see that it is the poorer people that are unable to be socially mobile. THEORIES In an attempt to explain class stratification there have been many different sociological perspectives.
Major reason for decline in communal life in the pacific Decline in communal life in Tonga and the Pacific is a result of changes brought about by social, political and economic changes due to more exposure to foreign influences transmitted through various means of communication namely or such as personal contacts digital availability ,televisions, radio, telephones and media prints such as newspaper and magazines Social changes have largely been influenced by foreign ideas that family construction in consist only of husband, wife and children. In direct opposition to our traditional Tongan family construction of not only husband, wife and children but also of the extended families structures such as grandparents, aunties and uncles In political spheres foreign influence attributes to many changes learnt mainly through formal education. Education introduces various or different ideas but mainly democracy and human rights .Communal life there is always a community leader such as nobles for the village and ulumotua for the family or the relations .In contrast to democratic ideas of majority rule. The introduction of money as a medium of exchange influences the traditional communal means of sharing natural resources such as fish and crops to support individual's daily needs. To acquire money brought about the ideas of business ventures where a business is a separate entity from it's proprietors .This idea means that daily needs are no longer looked after by the community as a whole but individual themselves In conclusion we understand with little doubt that foreign influences and ideas are the main contributors to the decline of communal life in Tonga and the Pacific
Thus, most people are studying and under employment, resulting in the loss of communal life status. Furthermore, employment is a contributing factor which includes the development of towns and cities, and the movement of people from rural to urban areas. Recently most countries in the Pacific are undergoing development in their towns and cities. The introduction of technology could be a very good example of this. Another example could be the way the people in urban areas live, which provides a gap between most people.
