First of all, if the NSA were to pursue major invasions of privacy to American’s, they would be obstructing rights set forth by the Constitution. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution prohibits non-reasonable search and seizure. If there is no probable cause for the government to search for evidence on an individual, then their legal rights should not be violated. I personally have nothing to hide, but being spied on would make me questions the true ethics of this country. On the other hand, I think that our government has the right to do everything in it’s power to ensure our safety, including spying on those in countries who have threatened our own.
These advanced machines are unable to be turned off and relieve any manner of personal privacy that the members of the outer-party should be entitled to; Winston even states ‘the only privacy you get is the few inches inside your skull’. This form of surveillance is very extreme and no doubt expensive, but in the eyes of INGSOC, a very necessary supplement to their complete domination over the party members. The telescreens had yet another use of detecting whether people were committing face-crime. A second sophisticated means of controlling people would be the use of thought police. Thought police were trained solely to seek out and detain any party members who were proven to be committing thought-crime.
He also declared that the United States had lost ground in the world not as a result of foreign aggression, but “because of the traitorous actions of those who have been treated so well by this nation.” The corporate-controlled news media also shared the blame for McCarthy's ability to disseminate "great lies." During the Wheeling speech, no reporter asked to examine the list McCarthy held, and it is said that McCarthy himself later joked to members of his inner circle that nothing was on the paper but a reminder to pick up his laundry. Addressing the Ohio County Women's Republican Convention, Senator McCarthy first quoted from Marx, Lenin, and Stalin their stated goal of world conquest and said, "today we are engaged
For example, the Mass Observation team picked up that people didn’t feel safe using the government shelters. However, instead of making the shelters better, they did a propaganda campaign advertising how good the shelters were. One of the ways of controlling what the people of Britain knew and didn’t know was censorship. The government banned anything that would demoralise the public, or get people to think in a negative way; they didn’t print anything that would make people feel as if they were being defeated. Many photographs and stories were not published until after the Blitz had ended.
If it were not for the protection of patents, big companies, with their robust capacity, would surpass the small business entrepreneurs in speed and cost of production and thereafter suppress them completely. However, the excludability that patents impose on non owners of the inventions does not see capacity. This helps small business entrepreneurs to practice their own inventions while big companies remain hands-tied. ii) Revenue from licenses, sale or infringement. Licensing ones technology to others is another good way of making money.
One of the ways how Stalin defeated the left side of the party was to make an alliance with Bukharin. This ended with Trotsky, Zinoviev and Kamenev losing their power bases. This gave Stalin a lot more power and meant there was no real threat left. I know from my own knowledge that Trotsky formed the alliance with Zinoviev and Kamenev because Stalin was a big threat. Stalin was more popular because of Trotsky’s “political paralysis” he couldn’t be a good public speaker.
Edward Snowden was an ex National Security Agency (NSA) contractor who leaked classified government information to journalists about the agency’s domestic spying activities which he believed to be an abuse of NSA’s authority and illegal(McCutcheon). He maintains that his revelations were for the good of the public because the government was over reaching and trampling on our Bill of Rights. And as a result, some people see him as a hero while others have branded him as a traitor. Although Snowden sees himself as a good citizen and a force for good, I on the contrary, take the position that his actions has put the nation at a disadvantage against our fight with the terrorist and therefore, that makes him a traitor in my eyes. To begin with, Snowden’s revelations made know to the public that the NSA has been collecting phone records on millions of US citizens as well as running an electronic surveillance program code name PRISM.
Listo System is finding hard to differentiate itself in product and price from its competitors Power Shift to Buyer During 1990s, Listo was a great success. Listo inabilities to differentiate itself from the competitors jeopardize that success. If Listo had been able to differentiate and create competitive advantage, it would have created loyal customers and strong brand image. Creating loyal customers and strong brand image would help to keep bargain power to the seller. However, inability of Listo to differentiate shifts the bargaining power to Buyer.
That’s greed. The incentive to do these things is to be as successful as possible. That is the “American Dream.” That is why the US is the way it is today. Capitalism does have its strengths and weaknesses but the strengths outweigh the weaknesses. For example, greed causes businessmen to compete with other businessmen, thus, keeping prices reasonable and forces them to keep up with consumer demands.
Every market including the financial industry can be evaluated through the use of Porter's five-force theory. Porter's uses the five forces, supplier power, barriers to entry, threat of substitutes, buyer power, and the degree of rivalry, as tools that help analyze a company's position against its competitors (QuickMBA site, 2003). Threat of New Entrants: Startup costs are extremely high so the probability of new entrants is low. The existing companies have capitalized on the distribution channels and have created strong branding awareness that makes it difficult for new comers to compete. The probability of success is so low that competitors pursue niche markets rather than trying to compete with the bigger companies.
