Illich first uses a series of metaphors to compare the legitimized professional world to the many undesirable organizations of our present and past. He first compares it to a sort of cartel in the way that like, for instance a drug cartel creates a need, puts themselves in the position of supplier and then makes money off the people. In his writing he says “Specialist…dominate the creation, adjudication and satisfaction of needs.” For example, it is true that we don’t actually need a lawyer
War on Drugs in Guatemala Oriana Peñaranda Introduction to International Relations 1011 Dr. Charles MacDonald March 23, 2012 The Central American country of Guatemala has experienced the traumatic effects of drug trafficking for about 30 years now and is desperately trying to find solutions to resolve this problem. Drug cartels have taken over large swathes of Guatemala and other Central American countries, fueling some of the highest murder rates in the world. Drug trafficking is a major issue because it threatens the stability, prosperity and peace of the country. The issue of illegal drug trafficking and the violence that comes with it is nothing new to Guatemala. Why does Guatemala suffer from the immense amount of drug trafficking?
Chris Caire Mrs. Pennycuff English Block 4 28 April 2011 “When Bulling Turns Deadly: Can it Be Stopped?” Later after reading John Clouds 2010 article “When Bulling Turns Deadly: Can it Be Stopped?” it was made clear that cyber bulling is and has been on the rise. Along with this growing problem there is also the matter in which cyber bulling has no distinct definition by law. Therefore it makes fighting cyber predators even harder. Cloud exclaims that everyone in society needs to be aware of this newly grown problem. Cloud expresses that the United States is falling prey to a new form of bulling and because there is no set guidelines for this new form of bulling many of young Americans are dyeing and he states that something needs to be done to stop it.
Abstract Priority for all nations is the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking, as this has become challenging with globalization. Globalization is a process among people, governments from other nations, organizations to interact and integrate by trade, investing and informational technologies. Social globalization can affect several things such as cultural clashes, disrupts people ways of living, including political and social relations. Terrorism and drug trafficking in Mexico has affected their globalization and security. The FBI defines domestic terrorism as the "unlawful use of force or violence, committed by a group(s) of two or more individuals, against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives (Terrorism, 2012).
From this, we see that the criminological theory examines crime, criminals, and the environment in an effort to explain criminal behavior. I chose an article to study and compare from The Journal of Jurisprudence. The article was Drug Legalization: Rescuing Central America from the Claws of Crime. Basically, this article says that within Central America, the drug trade has taken a turn for the worst in Central America. As a result, the people of their society are struck with a lot of crime.
The article “The Cashless Society Almost Here and With Some Very Sinister Implications” contends that the government is currently setting in place a global disaster that will push us into a cashless society. How would a cashless economy be different from our paper money and coin system? The author, Patrick Henningsen, demonstrates that the world as we know it will be dramatically different. The ease of electronic systems has made using paper money unpopular. While swiping your credit card at your local retailer seems like a good idea, there is a much deeper implication of a cashless society.
Moore persuades his audiences by saying as a society; we tend to forget what the outcome is when big corporations decide to fire workers because the CEO wants more for their salary. Analogy, argumentation, and personal anecdotes are some methods Moore uses to demonstrate to his audiences. Moore uses analogy throughout his essay by comparing crack to downsizing by GM and big companies like “AT&T, and GE.” The CEO states, “A company must be able to do whatever it wants to make a profit.” This shows that any company will do anything it needs to do to make a profit whether it’s ruining lives or communities. Moore suggests that General Motors sell crack. “But Crack is illegal!” you say.
Immigration from Mexico to the United States has been a very controversial issue, in which society can agree or disagree with it. However in the book, The Devil’s Highway, Luis Alberto Urrea takes us through the journey of 26 illegal Mexican walkers in which he tells the story of these immigrants hopes in a not only a brighter future but also a chance to make their wishing become reality. We come across multiple dilemmas where everyone plays a good and bad guy. However one cannot fully come to a determination of who really is the good and bad guy. We come to a point in the novel in which one is quick to blame the corrupt coyotes, as they are the ones that are demanding thousands of dollars to help these immigrants cross the border and most of the time these immigrants were being left to dry and die as they took all their money.
America must restore its rights and responsibilities. Prohibition does not work. There would not be a criminal market place if drugs, all drugs including designer drugs, were legal. In an article titled, “10 Reasons to Legalize Drugs” it stated that “The market for drugs is demand-led and millions of people demand illegal drugs.” Crime would be reduced tremendously. Most of the violence associated with Lind 2 illegal drug dealing is caused by its illegality.
A reason for scale of transnational organised crime is demand from the rich west. However the global criminal economy couldn’t survive without a supply side that provides the source for demands of the west, such as drugs and prostitutes. This supply is linked to the globalisation process. For example third world drug producing countries such as Columbia have large populations of impoverished peasants. For them drug investment is attractive; it’s simple to produce and commands high prices.
