This allowed her to become unlike the rest of the town. Atticus has given many teachings to his children but the most important one is outlined twice in the novel. Atticus summarizes that the essential component of attempting to understand a person is that “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (39). This quote is outlined twice in the novel because Atticus understands people’s opinions by looking from their perspective.
Diversity is about acknowledging your prejudices, allowing people to be different and respecting these differences. It is also about challenging others if necessary and speaking up for the individuals you support when they cannot speak up for themselves Equality means everyone is treated as individuals and everyone is treated as equals. Discrimination is a preconceived attitude towards members of a particular group formed only upon the basis of their membership of that group that leads to less favourable or bad treatment of that person. The attitude is often resistant to change even in the light of new information. It is essential that you do not allow your prejudices to influence the way you work with individuals.
A form of democracy has always been a sign of evolution, it shows that people are striving for some variant of order to control what goes on around them, and it assists them in establishing rules to live by. With all this said, democracy can also display the polar opposite, citizens can have separate viewpoints leading to different priorities and ideas. With this said, it is difficult to imagine anyone less scatterbrained and any group that needs more attention then children, always bickering about whatever they want. An example from the book comes from Piggy when he says “You and your blood Jack Merridew! You and your hunting!
At first, it might come off that his reasons may have not been very strong but he surely does state a point. (14) He says, “In a democracy, each of us cannot always have our way. There must be a willingness to work together and compromise. By saying that it gives the audience standards and can adapt to what he is saying. Even if people do not agree on what Terrell says they can certainly leave the article with an open
This question does not suggest that your audience is stupid or uneducated. As we saw in Chapter 1, there is a great deal of confusion today about such matters as free will, truth, knowledge, opinion, and morality. Many intelligent and educated people have fallen victim to ideas and attitudes that cripple their creative and critical faculties. In many cases, your audience will appreciate your insights only if you first help them get beyond their misconceptions. Is Your Audience’s Perspective Likely to Be Narrow?
Dillard believes she must make her writing interesting, if it is dull people won’t read it. She also knows she must decide what to put in her writing and what to leave out, depending on how people would react to it. Faulkner doesn’t even think about that kind of stuff, he believes you should write about the emotions we experience and “help him endure and prevail.” Each of these duties are completely different, but yet, they both make sense and to help them
“Forming - Each member of the team focuses on the leader, accepting only the leader’s guidance and authority and maintaining a polite but distant relationship with the others. During this stage the leader must be seen to be open with information and ready to answer the many questions that will come her or his way; boundaries, strengths and weaknesses will be tested, including those of the leader. There is likely to be some baggage regarding the way people have been treated in the past, which might result in some clinging to the old ways, if their experience was positive, or suspicion and apathy if it left
Most of us understand the difference between being racist and being politically correct, but most of us let our experiences within our own culture shape how we view people. Judging people is easy to do and quite commonly done unknowingly, but it is when we put our prejudice out on the table that our true colors shine through. I do believe that we will all learn from our mistakes and we will all be judged equally to our own judging. This film showed the very worst of people in today’s society yet also showed American civilization at its best. This film was a “Crash” of intercultural differences and racism; however there is hope in the end when most come to terms with their stereotyping problem, and that is no
Most people have a basic understanding of obedience; however, many may fail to see the application and the impact of it in their own lives and in our society. Submission into conformity discourages the type of independence that is valued in our supposedly free-thinking world. Censorship is one of the major themes in Fahrenheit 451, and its impact is illustrated through submission in appearance, behavior and thought. This invites us to draw clear relationships between Ray Bradbury‘s novel and our current society. The association between appearance and social acceptance is already apparent in our lives.
Posey1 Ms. Margaret Wanning ENG 101 7- Oct- 2013 Brutal Realities Many of us learn at a very young age to obey those who we deem as having authority over us, and in many cases we do just that. The thought may cross our minds to use our own discretion in many situations, but the feeling of being accepted by someone we look up to reigns supreme. Even though morally we may have our own indiscretions, we make decisions based on the majority rather than the minority. Two great examples of this type of behavior are shown in, “The Lottery”, by Chris Abani and “Salvation”, by Langston Hughes. In “The Lottery”, written by, Chris Abani the story tells of a 10- year- old whose perception of his aunt changes one day at a local market when
