Socialism is, and has been since its creation, a misunderstood political philosophy, especially in the capitalistic Western world. The common view of socialism by democracy and its supporters is that it suppresses the voice of the individual in order to create a uniform society where the weak (the poor) feed off the strong (the rich). In reality, Marx’s aim in his socialist philosophy is not in the transformation of the political constitution of society, nor the elimination of disparities between the social classes, but rather the ability of many to have control of his own destiny. This is outlined in Marx’s Communist Manifesto, which attributes the realization of this autonomous power only through the reformation of the previously mentioned societal agents. The exerpt in study is one from the autobiography of Ottillie Baader, a German socialist woman whos lived during the turn of the 20th century. The root of Baader’s accordance with socialism lies in her experience as a laborer, who is slave to the industrial system, which pits employee against his employer, his fellow employee, and his familly member, and ultimately results in the complete discontent in one’s life amassed by the tremendous struggle to survive. The aim of Marxist socialism is the eradicate the very hardhsips experienced by Baader, and many other laborers, that make life seemingly not worth living.
The exerpt specifically adresses Baader’s experience as a worker in the industrial market alongside growing technology and capitalism. She describes her working conditions as arduous and tiring, working 11 hours a day, with a small break for lunch, along side 100 other women operating a sewing machine in the exact same way (Baader Lines 26-28). This type of working condition is mentioned in the Manisfesto when Marx describes the montony and simplicity of such factory jobs, which make the worker “an appendage of the machine,” and causes him to lose all…

What happened was he took a hit during practice and was bleeding from his forehead. He told his coaches he did not feel right and that he had a headache, he was evaluated four times by a trainer without a concussion test, so he was told to go back out to practice.

There are also several lawsuits against the NFL and NHL as a result of players being improperly diagnosed and…

Mark O’Mara is the attorney that’s representing George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is being charged with second degree murder and his trial is set for June 10, 2013. Attorneys for Martin have accused Zimmerman of racially profiling Martin and shooting him “in cold blood”. Zimmerman’s lawyers says the ‘Stand Your Ground” Florida passed in 2006 does not apply in Zimmerman’s case. Judge Debra Nelson ruled that Trayvon Martin’s familiarity with guns, his marijuana use and fights he may have been in cannot be brought up in Zimmerman’s trail. She also denied a request to take the jury to the crime scene. Also jurors will remain anonymous and will be referred to by numbers only during the trial.

1. A Conflict of Interest as described by the PAL code states that ‘while the Company respects the rights of employees to manage their personal affairs and investments employees must also act in the best interests of the company and avoid situations that present a potential or actual conflict between their interests and the interests of the company. A ‘conflict of interest’ exists when a person’s personal interests conflicts or interferes in any way with interests of the company. A conflict situation can arise when an employee takes actions or has interests that may make it difficult to perform his or her work objectively and efficiently. Conflicts of interest may not always be clear-cut, so if you are unsure about a situation or have a question, you should consult the Senior Ethics Advisor. Any employee who becomes aware of a conflict or potential conflict should bring it to the attention of the Senior Ethics Advisor as soon as possible’ (facts). a.

Benny, the War in Europe, and Myerson’s daughter Bella
This short story takes place in Montreal in a Jewish family. It begins during WW2 and continues 5-10 years. It appears to be a small and mainly poor working class community. Benny’s family seems to be wanting more from life, especially his father, who always compares his son to the other sons in the community.
Benny:In the beginning of the story Benny is described as a quiet boy, who is likely to stay out of trouble, should he goes to war. He does go to war and when he returns apparently nothing has changed. Benny is still the quiet boy; short and skinny with a long narrow face, a pulpy mouth and soft black eyes. An important thing to notice is his hands. Later in the story his hands become somewhat a symbol of his mental illness(Page 174, line 24) Q: “He had big conspicuous hands, which he preferred to keep out of sight in his pockets. In fact he seemed to want to keep out of sight altogether … ” Q. end.Benny is clearly locked up inside and whenever it rains, it triggers his emotional stress, perhaps because the sound of heavy rain hitting a tin roof reminds him of machine guns firing. Later when he starts to hang around at Pop’s Cigar & Soda, he often just sits quietly looking at his hands, as if he is reliving the horrors he has seen in the war. Benny starts to lighten up after he marries Bella. He becomes talkative, works hard in his brother’s garage and generally becomes all that, what his old class-master in high school recommended he should become: An honest hard working citizen. Everything turns out fine for Benny, but all though he can now repress his scars, they are still deeply rooted in him. This is also the reason for the very sad ending of the story; that he watches a newsreel concerning war matters, and it all then comes back casting him, once again, into despair.
Bella.Bella is the daughter of Mr. Myerson, the proprietor of Pop’s Cigar & Soda. She works…

Choose a poem which expresses a point of view you find disturbing. Explain what distubs you about the poet’s point of view and discuss to what extent you are nevertheless able to admire the way the poem is written.Carol Ann Duffy’s poem ‘Havisham’ is a dramatic monologue written from the eyes of the infamous character Miss Havisham who is extracted from Dickens’s ‘Great Expectations’. Miss Havisham is a very disturbing character for a number of different reasons conceived by the pain and hurt she has endured through out her life after being jilted at the altar many years before the poem is set. Through out Havisham we learn that there is more underlying problems to Havisham than what was once acknowledged. Hatred completely destroys Havisham and that instead of helping her to get revenge, it makes her worse which results in her hating all men.In the first stanza of the poem, we immediately learn about Miss Havisham through her gritty honesty. She is expressing the pain of being jilted at the altar as she reveals her personal feelings of the man she was about to marry.
“Beloved sweetheart bastard.”
Here we see Duffy opening the poem in an oxymoronic way. She uses this technique to entise us in to the poem and to emphasise the contrast of her hectic feelings towards her ex-lover. This is also a very controversial way of opening the poem, possibly throwing us in at the deep end right at the start to establish what type of person Havisham is and to prepare us for the roller-coaster ahead. ‘Beloved’ being the man she once loved, ‘Sweetheart’ a word we typically call our loved ones and ‘Bastard’ an offensive swear word. All highly contrasting words which makes us feel disturbed as we enter the poem. This opening of the poem is very abrupt and it’s almost as if we’ve walked in on Miss Havisham in the midst of a breakdown. It’s also climatic, something in which we’d typically see at the end of a poem, building tension but controversially Duffy opens in this way…
