Can Writers Be Political
I was scrolling down the sidebar and the title "Can Writers Be Political" came up somewhere in the stories. Instead of going through it, I wished to put my words on the given topic, as I believed it is one of the most significant topics that need to be discussed. Had I read it, it would have affected my opinion and that is why instead of reading it I am writing on it.
Globalization And Third World Countries
Globalization is an extended and complex phenomenon of the twenty-first century. It is a word that encompasses the entire world into an integrated and interdependent body of different units. The very thesis of the theory is that due to the rapid communication and the pace of economic transformation the world has dramatically changed into a global village. Where in one part of the world an event in society has abrupt and far cry consequences on the other part of the world. In hindsight, a cosmopolitan culture, free-market economy, trade and business, easy transformation of goods and people, global polity, common threats and concerns of humanity, rapid transportation has changed human society. It also has enormous impacts on the culture, economy, and politics of those societies which are politically dependent, educationally deprived, technically less skilled, and economically crippled. They don’t have easy access to modern and advanced technologies. And that’s why despite all the efforts of the developing countries they are maltreated and exploited by the developed states.
All is Fair in Love and Markets
"Fundamentally, there are only two ways of co-ordinating the economic activities of millions. One is central direction involving the use of coercion - the technique of the army and of the modern totalitarian state. The other is voluntary co-operation of individuals - the technique of the market place."
Muckrakers the super heroes of journalism
Muckrakers were investigative reporters and writers during what is known as the Progressive Era which lasted from 1890–1920. These individuals wrote about injustice and corruption in order to bring much needed changes in society. You could call them whistleblowers who published articles in magazines like Cosmopolitan and McClure's and also in books. The January 1903 issue of McClure's is considered to be the official debut for muckraking journalism.
Recrafting Women's History
I wanted so badly to enter this contest but the problem is that my subject is miles away from happy. In fact, many people avoid this issue like the plague, afraid that if they chose to face it, the happiness they have established for themselves would crumble beneath their feet.
"Popular Attitudes to Democracy"
b Though the armed forces in Bangladesh have been highly politicised, the people of South Asia have been deeply committed to democratic order. During the British rule in India, Bengalis were in the forefront of democratic movements in the 1920s and 1930s. The All-India National Congress and the Muslim League, which had been mainly responsible for the partition of India and Pakistan, were led by Bengali political leaders in the formative phases. The freedom movement in British India, in a sense, was a movement for a democratic polity and was deeply rooted in the democratic ethos.
Media Law and Ethics
Nowadays media has gained more importance than ever due to the increased interconnectivity between regions because of globalization. Sharing of information and knowledge has become a pillar in a more closely knit modern world. However, the significance of the media in its roles in social, economic, and overall development calls for ethics and discipline. Rao said that an unregulated media with no ethics would be disastrous not only to the social freedom, but also its own independence. Therefore, the need to have media laws that govern and guide the media as well as an ethical framework for the media cannot be underestimated. While the laws governing the media differ from one country to the other due to the diversities, the bottom line is the regulation of sharing information to ensure that it serves the interest of the consumers and general social wellbeing. In advanced democracies such as the US, media laws and ethical standards are higher and more developed, while emerging economies that have gained global recognition such as the UAE have also become significant. This paper will provide an overview of the media laws and ethics in the United States and United Arab Emirates and compare the situations in the two countries before making recommendations on how to improve the overall benefits that the society can reap from a responsible and ethically sound media in the United Arab Emirates.
Anarchism in America
"All of history is a struggle of the individual against the institutions." --Emma Goldman Modern America, the "Land of the Free," incarcerates more people than any other nation on Earth, including China. We spend more on military spending than the next twenty-five countries combined. We give more in "corporate welfare" than we do in human welfare, healthcare, or the basic services to common citizens. In the film, Anarchism in America, made by filmmakers Joel Sucher and Steven Fischler of Pacific Street Films (which was founded in 1969 as a way to document the continual struggle of radical groups against the Vietnam War and other social ills), we see the various modes of anarchist thought and philosophy in the emerging era of greed and corruption, the trickle-down era of Reaganomics. These are the roots of where we find ourselves today, so to look at the past (which, to quote a certain film, "is prolog") is important.
Everyone's A Racist
The other night I was talking on the phone with my brother, a news reporter, when he asked if I wanted to hear something interesting. Me being me, I of course said yes, and he proceeded to tell me of a government agency that was only accepting job applications from female minorities. When confronted about this and asked how that wouldn't be a violation of federal guidelines against job discrimination, they said that they were just collecting the information of female minorities who might be interested in the job, and that at a later date they would be opening the same data collection to other individuals who do not fit into that criteria, and then after that stage they would be opening actual job applications to interested parties. If any of that was hard to follow, it basically boils down to the fact that job discrimination is going on (albeit in the favor of perceived minorities), and that no matter who applies and when, the company is definitely going to hire a female minority because by opening applications to those individuals first they are clearly stating that that is the sort of individual they want for the position.
The Root Of Partisan Divide
A look at partisan politics perse but who is the real villain in this story? I'm going to attempt to shed some light on a truly dark topic, in the hopes that if we address the problem, maybe we can work together to the solution...
The Farmers Happiness.
The joy of every worker is to see the result of their respective works regardless of their field. There was really no adequate produce, not all farmers were able to move out of their houses, their respective customers as well had been locked indoors due to the pandemic, how will our food producers survive?
The limits to a Prime Minister's power
A British Prime Minister is not a President, although complaints have been made for many years that the office of Prime Minister is becoming more presidential. To be strictly accurate, the designation “Prime Minister” is a courtesy title, and he (on two occasions to date it has been “she”) should be referred to as “First Lord of the Treasury”, but convention has enshrined the title in Britain’s unwritten constitution for well over a hundred years.
