People were afraid of the domino theory. They were afraid if South Vietnam fell to communism that the rest of Southeast Asia would follow. With time the American people grew tired of the war. When Charlie was hard to find and there was no end to the war, nobody wanted to be involved anymore. Americans were so tired of the war that the feelings were reflected in the election of Johnson vs Nixon.
This can slow down the political process immensely, and as the government has a mandate to put through such legislation, pressure groups become undemocratic and start to undermine the democratic process. One last reason why pressure groups undermine democracy is the fact that they themselves may be undemocratic, and the leaders of these groups may not truly represent the views of their leaders. This undermines the whole point of pressure groups groups and thus can be seen as the 'politics of self-interest' and can present the public with overbiased and false information. Overall however, pressure groups are more likely to help the democratic process rather than hinder it, as they advance and improve political participation, and as participation is a vital part of democracy, pressure groups are an important part of the UK's democracy. While pressure groups may have unbalanced influence due to varying methods and funds, they are generally good at being a channel of representation between the people and the government, keeping the government in touch with the people.
When the government decides to raise the tax rate this has a negative impact on Manchester United because this means they can not carry out given activities and this will prevent them from achieving their aims and objectives. If the corporation tax rises then this will mean Manchester United will have to pay a larger amount of tax on their over profit which will mean they will not be able to afford quality players and this will effect their match performance. By not being able to afford quality players this prevents Man U from achieving their aim which is to be the best team in the world! If Manchester can not afford best players due to high taxes then simply they will not win matches and lose their reputation. The most important legal factor for Manchester united is the company law.
Henry David Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience shows his dislike of the government. We live in a world where everything we do is related to the government. There are many things that happen in which the citizens do not agree with but we have to or get ourselves killed or into jail. There are many things that the government has not done right but I do not believe that we should have a government at all as Thoreau suggested. The government should not be used to control the people but to direct them in the right direction.
The physical injury gives survivors something to hide behind. Changes, after conflict, are often seen to have a negative effect on the individual, but in some cases the endurance of the conflict can bring on a change for the positive. A transformation in the individual after encountering dissonance can forever shape their relationships with other people. Morals and beliefs can be altered through encountering altered, where the individual is forced to reflect upon their own thoughts. Survivors of conflict are never the same again.
People are often afraid of failure, and when someone believes that you can not do something, it motivates you to not fail, using the fear as fuel for success. Another example is people who are afraid of public speaking. When one is afraid of speaking in front of others, they often use the fear as a motivation to make their speech good, so that they don’t have to worry about having a bad speech as well as speaking in front of others. A comfort zone for people afraid of public speaking or performing would be picturing the crowd in their underwear. Many people are also afraid of loneliness.
We care mostly because we’re scared. We’re worried about how others will perceive us. This constant worrying lowers our self-confidence. We are so concerned about others’ opinions of us that sometimes we lose ourselves in the process. We’ll act how we expect other people to act, and in doing so we aren’t true to ourselves.
A society without laws would be a corrupt chaotic society that would put people in a state of crisis because people would be murdered for possessions they own, fundamental beliefs of how people preserve what’s right from wrong in a society would not be the same as a normal society, and a balance between individual rights and public order would not be a basis part of a society. In this society without a government people would not be prosperous and seek new ways to live as a group. The basis for money would not be the same as with a government and would result in different forms of exchange. Education would not be the same because that is part of a unifying government trying to educate its society, for which a society without laws and government would not unify in such a matter. Care for others such as medical treatment would not have the same basis as a normal society because of how people perceive the responsibility of others in a aspect of individual care.
Society and the media have a bigger impact on the people of today because everyone wants to keep up with everyone else. Nobody wants to be left behind so to speak. Having high goals on one’s life would actually lead to a suicide because if you fail them then you would be really brought down by your own failure. On a work done by Dr. Iga’s it is shows that “a great degree of goal-means discrepancy, perception of a failure situation as irredeemable, and an alienated self-concept” are also some of the factors that affect someone badly (Iga). This information is basically the same thing I had
Also, when America itself has problems, we should be more focused on correcting our own country rather than helping others. Not many people realize the fact that the U.S. really isn’t doing as well as we should be. Putting money into operations such as “Operation Iraqi Freedom” because of the fact that we lost an incredible amount of money on something pretty pointless. Iraq is still terrible and will continue to be terrible. Spending money on improving other countries isn’t always going to have a positive impact.
