Class in contemporary New Zealand Society - When asked to describe contemporary New Zealand society, class is not a term that will occur to most people. The word conjures up Dickensian images of factories and poverty, haves and have-nots; and radicalism such as the works of Marx. Certainly, not today's modern society. If asked, most people would probably hold the view that it is a “relic of a vanishing industrial capitalism and a vestige of outmoded social theory, with little relevance in a world whose novelty has been variously signalled by the prefix of 'post' (Ongley, 2013)....   [tags: new zeeland, karl marx, capitalism]

The Delusion of Happiness in Brave New World and Canada - Abraham Lincoln once said, “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” Thus, implying happiness can be determined by ones mindset.

Use of Propaganda in the 1930’s and in Brave New World - Life in the 1930’s for Americans was very bewildering since the country was just coming out of the Red Scare. Aldous Huxley published a dystopian book, Brave New World, in which the fictional “controllers” in the novel could easily manipulate the ignorance of people through drugs and conditioning. The government used the drug soma as a way to make everyone high and agree to anything that the hierarchy wanted.

Traditional Media vs. New Media - The Man Behind the Curtain Words do not stand in place of things, but instead of things. How can one talk about media in the world where media seems to be a shared dream (hallucination if you like), specter with divergent forms, common denominator with apparently little consensus among people of what it could even mean. Therefore, questions regarding the nature of medium, and consequently new media should not be sought exclusively in contemporary culture.

Testing New Medications - The medical community depends on medication testing to evaluate the effects of new medications. While these tests are necessary it is often difficult to find willing test subjects.

I will defend the position that it is ethical to test medications in developing countries, due to the trials being superior to no treatment at all, the modern researcher’s obligation to maintain patient autonomy, and the potent...   [tags: Medical Community, New Medications, Testing]
