Q. Family Diversity Diversity is the shift of normal family structures to a variety of family forms. Some sociologists said that nuclear and extended families no longer make up the majority of households or families. Family patterns are characterized by much diversity, for example, reconstituted families, single parent families, symetrical families same sex families. Other sociologists have also pointed out that there is also regional diversity in patterns of family life.
However the other two will check the one wanting to exceed thus, balancing out the power and securing citizens from a dictatorship type of government. Another reason would simply be when he states, “If men were angles, no government would be necessary.” In other words since we are not angles but are men if we had power in our hands we would abuse it. Then he continues that even though the powers are shared and are equal the government should still be able to control not only the people but, themselves. This will only help protect the people’s individual rights including the minority. In the end he says that in order to have a balanced government the majority must agree on justice.
Answer: A dictatorship and democracy are quite different, but they can also be similar. In a dictatorship the common people have no say in the on goings of government or the treatment of the governed. In a democracy the people DO have a say in what goes on, and they vote to make decisions. Both can be good in bad in their own ways. Some say a dictatorship is better because the people don’t know what is and isn’t good for them.
In the age of globalization, it helps us to understand what difference culture in reducing culture's absolute superiority. As the rapid progress of globalization, different cultures were flowed in today's society. For accepting different culture, cultural relativism is considered very meaningful in these days. In a multicultural society, cultural relativism is regarded as a basic acquirement for settling terrible social problem or prejudice came from the idea in the grip of the nationalism. Through this essay, I argued in favor of cultural relativism towards real globalization.
Does freedom end where the safety of society in general begins? If so, what are the proportions by which we measure the importance of safety against that of freedom? There must exist a balance between the importance of freedom and that of safety because neither is good without the other. However, more often than not, our primal instinct to survive would force us to grudgingly accept that safety must have a slight priority over freedom. Without any guarantees on safety, not many would fully want to exercise their freedom.
In my opinion, Singaporeans are gradually growing acceptance towards multi-ethnicity from only tolerance. It is true that Singaporeans have not fully accept multi-ethnicity, as mentioned in the article “1 in 2 Singapore residents do not have a close friend from another race”, “10 per cent of Malays and Indians said that they have been treated badly when using public services such as in hospitals, schools, social service agencies and in court”, and the government has to take actions such as implementing HDB Ethnic Integration policy to ensure a balanced ethnic mix which implies there is still lack of acceptance. However, many signs show that Singaporeans are not simply tolerating multi-ethnicity anymore. Some people believe that multi-ethnicity is more of tolerance than acceptance in Singapore, the view of which is biased. They address the incidences of people making negative comments.
This results in the loss of cultural difference all around the world. This essay aims to look at the extent to which the life of a child living in a South African township can be considered a ‘Global citizen’. it is clear that western norms are predominant in all parts of the world this will be disscussed as well as critiqued by looking at western influences limitations with in a South African contex. “Globalization is a process in which worldwide economic, political, cultural and social relations have become increasingly mediated across time and space” (Rantanen, 2005: 8) There is no question that our world is changing. Our once big world is rapidly shrinking; it would not unfair to suggest that the cause of these changes could in fact be the introduction of globalisation with in our social world.
Security vs. Privacy We know that people want security in their in life but prefer their privacy, so when it comes down to it which is more important? We read how Bruce Schneier wanted the people to have privacy and how he knows that people don’t do anything but with constant surveillance the government will accuse you of something. As on the other hand we have Chris Cillizza who believes that privacy is important but it won’t keep you safe from foreign attacks. Also Cillizza shows that any type of information that the government finds suspicious will put people at risk. Honestly in this type of argument it comes down to the better facts rather than opinions and that’s why Cillizza makes the better argument.
Liberalism, one of the main schools of international relations theory, believes that state preferences, rather than state capabilities, determine state behavior. There are actually two subcategories of Liberalism: neoliberalism and post-liberalism. Neoliberalism argues that nations can successfully compete in the international system due to the support of international institutions. Although this paper doesn’t really focus on post-liberalism, post-liberals argue that states are driven to cooperate in today’s globalized society. Realists practice anarchy, which means there is no governmental order.
The Importance of Being a Good Citizen Good citizenship is important in any country, particularly in a democracy such as the United States. In countries where people do not enjoy the freedoms that we have in America, the government plays a larger role in controlling the lives of its citizens. In America, the government is specifically designed to play as small a part as possible in the lives of its citizens. That is one of the principles upon which it was founded. It is the lack of government control that allows us freedom.
