Using material from the Item and elsewhere, assess the view that media imperialism threatens ‘the cultural identities of many countries’. Media imperialism is the view that news is dominated by the West; as the media is linked to politics because of the benefits of capitalism, the effects of the media is threatening cultural identities with this same lifestyle which theorists such as Marxists disagree with. How media imperialism is threatening, what it is doing to threaten cultural identities and the effects of it need to be looked at to assess this matter properly. First of all it is how the Media imperialism is threatening cultural identities in other countries that is important to assess. The dominance and power of the west is affecting cultures.
So, oppressed people can not win the respect of oppressor. He believes in this way the oppressed become as evil as the oppressor because acquiescence is the easier way to encounter oppression, also it is not the moral way. In Dr. King’s opinion, the second way is resorting to physical violence and corroding hatred. He believes violence not only brings impermanent results, but also is impractical and immoral. According to King, it is impractical because it slows the process of ending the oppression for all, and it is immoral because it seeks humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding.
Write down the TWO most important things he says about the writing of history. The two most important things he says about the writing of history are: * He said that we must not accept the memory of states as our own. The history of any country conceals violent conflicts of interest between conquerors and conquered, masters and slaves, capitalists and workers. * But to think that history-writing must intent simply to repeat the failures that control the past is to make historians traitors in an endless cycle of conquest. 1.
He sees the Vietnam War on the whole as not only a waste of time, men, and resources for the Americans, but also a cause of “huge fissures …in US society” (Harman 572). In contrast, Bentley and Ziegler view the topic from a much more broad-based point of view. They do not point out America’s earlier winnings, but rather focus on
The major premise of his argument is that “the display of swastikas or Confederate flags clearly falls within the protection of the free speech clause of the First Amendment.” Thus, though he regrets that the students involved behaved in this fashion, Bok claims that censorship is dangerous and goes against the value of communication and American principles of democracy. He concludes his argument by suggesting that instead of enforcing codes, and thus violating the right to free speech, it would be better either to ignore such communications or to speak with those who perform insensitive acts. Rhetorical analysis Derek Bok organizes his argument by first describing the problem, then presenting both sides of approaches to resolving it, and finally explaining his personal stand on the issue. The rhetorical structure of such approach allows Bok present the argument fairly by conceding to the proponents of speech code enforcement that display of Confederate flags or swastikas is indeed insensitive and offensive. This pattern of organization also allows Bok to distinguish between the
Primarily, it is clearly geared towards its receiving audience, namely well-to-do traditional American families. As a result, it definitely holds a biased position that requires it to appeal to its readers and pander to popular opinions beyond simply informing the general public of newsworthy events regarding the war. The second document also exhibits bias, although of a completely different sort. This underground newspaper promotes radically different, liberal, anti-war ideas and is obviously not geared towards ameliorating its professional image or really pandering to its audience. Its unofficial status makes it less put together while perhaps ensuring greater freedom of information.
Erik Beeler Period 5 British literature Miss. George American Democracy: Unfair to All “REBELLION! INDEPENDENCE!” These were the cries of the people two-hundred and forty-three years ago when the founding fathers of this nation signed the Declaration of Independence, sealing this nation's fate to fight a war against Great Britain to secure colonial freedom. The rebels fought hard to gain a surprising victory over Britain’s powerful army, creating the United States of America. After a failed attempt at a fair democracy through the Articles of Confederation, the fathers reassembled to reform our government only to completely destroy the previous system and set up a new one.

I believe it only comes down to power. Government wants power over people. This opinion is supported by evidence such as the 2005 case of Terri Schiavo, while in vegetated state, the government attempted to keep her alive. Americans highly disapproved of officials actions, viewing them as “unwelcome government intrusion into their most personal of life decisions. Those responses surprised legislators and pro-life advocates” (Hillyard
