Ellie Wiesel experiences what many people cannot even imagine is possible, at a very young age. In the death camps, the Jews are treated with a terrible lack of respect, as if they weren’t humans anymore. They worked their prisoners to death, and did many difference experiments on them to test the limits of the human body. To the leaders of the death camps, a human life mattered to them no more as a small animals life. In the death camps, the officers change the prisoners names to numbers, taking away the last thing that the prisoners could still use to remember the past, for they stripped them of every possible memory of earlier happiness.
The slave dealers and owners would dehumanize the slaves to the point that they had no say so in their lives or any freedom what so ever. They were told where to live, who they can live with, eat, work, sleep and who they can marry. If they disobeyed any orders they were beat, whipped and even killed. With these hardships as a slave Frederick Douglass hated everything about being a salve and had hatred for his oppressors. He rebelled against his slave masters through learning to read and write.
Concentration camps were multifaceted and complex camps that had no regard for human life and played an important role during the Holocaust. Concentration camps ignored the rights of those subject to incarceration, and often were starved, tortured, overworked and murdered. Living conditions were poor, unsanitary and harsh. People were given little to no food and were forced to work. The camps were described as “a dehumanizing existence that involved a struggle for survival against a system designed to annihilate them.” Prisoners were forced to exist in conditions described as “dehumanizing” believing that the camps took away their human rights.
3) After the study, how do you think the prisoners and guards felt when they saw each other in the same civilian clothes again and saw their prison reconverted to a basement laboratory hallway? After the experiment, the experimenter must have felt a lot of guilt, hate and embarrassment towards each other. Even though it was an experiment and they knew it wasn’t real, they had actual real emotions towards each other such as dictatorship and anxiety. They mot have felt any better, knowing that the basement was made into a prison facility and reconverted to a lab hallway. The only impression they may have had was that it was a horrible experience knowing it was a prison 4) If you were the experimenter in charge, would you have done this study?
Moral regulation the way in which society regulates individuals, the norms and values which constrain people’s behaviour. He believed that when these functions break down, the individual could not control the environment they live in and are left to their own devices. He called this anomie (society in which individuals do not have any firm guidelines about the way to behave with each other.) (Lawson and Garrod 1996).Social change could create anomie, such as closure of large factories causing high unemployment. Thus possibly creating a link leading to suicidal tendencies.
They use fear to control employees. People in a minimum wage lifestyle cannot afford to loose their job, so the management threatens their job. Taking away bits and pieces of their freedoms in the work place demoralizes their attitudes and work ethics. Control is the underlying cause of suppression which in turn their advancement and success is censored. All the while their management tactics solidify, which is unfortunate for all of us.
Douglass’ narrative is a recount of the tough life on the plantations before his escape to New York. Douglas describes in this narrative the senseless acts of cruelty on the part of the masters as well as the debased lives of the slaves. In this book he also stated how his master forbade Mrs. Auld to teach him any further, because he felt that once Frederick Douglass learned to read, it would do him no good, but a great deal of harm, it would make him discontented and unhappy, it would forever unfit him to be a slave, and there would be no keeping him. This very much, somehow inspired Frederick Douglass to learn at whatever cost of trouble. Frederick Douglass would bring bread from his home and give an exchange for knowledge with the poor white boys, who was contribute to him being
Being arrested for thought crime was greatly feared as people who were punished never returned, and their “existence was wiped” completely. Another way that Big Brother controlled the people was by signs he installed on the tall buildings. The sign manipulated people into thinking that “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” Winston was determined to defy Big Brother’s control and he found a way around his watchful eyes. Winston began to write a diary in a secluded corner away from the telescreen writing Furthermore, Truman was also controlled and manipulated by his creator, Christof. Truman wasn’t just the only one being controlled by Christof, he also controlled everyone else around Truman.
This brainwashing leads them to believe that anything and everything that happens to them is because of the great leader. An if they don't believe this or go against what the great leader says, then they are punished. Some of the punishments include torture, death or even worse than death imprisonment. imprisonment in North Korea is extremely bad because it doesn't just affect you, it affects your entire family, even those not born yet. If one person is arrested for saying or doing anything that goes against what the party or the great leader then three generations of their family are put into the internment camp and forced to work (Inside).
