The structure of power in society is a vital part of understanding sociology. The two main theories that differentiate this structure are Mills’ theory of a power elite and Riesman’s contrasting theory of veto groups, or pluralism. Both theories are often found in varying degrees when considering important public decisions, such as the Hoover Redevelopment Plan or the University Village Plan. Generally, one of these theories is more applicable and relevant to certain public decisions and developments depending on the issue. While both of these theories played a part in the Hoover Redevelopment Plan and the University Village Plan, the power elite theory is ultimately more responsible for the institution of these developments.
Question 1 – The reason of the price of free-range eggs is expected to rise.
During the sixteenth century and even into the seventeenth century, scientific discoveries and new empirical ways of thinking began to emerge. This period of history is commonly referred to as the Scientific Revolution. The Scientific Revolution challenged past authorities by challenging church teachings, philosophy, and traditionally held views of humanity’s place in the cosmos.
Under these Articles, states maintained their independence and sovereignty. As Armitage asserts “Each of the 13 states had a vote in the weak national Congress (appointed by the state governments), while a vote of 9 states was required in order to pass any laws and a unanimous vote of all 13 states was required for the Articles to be amended.” The weaknesses of the Articles arose from its central call for an alliance that gave sovereign power to all the states. This is evident in Article number II that states “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled” (Rodgers). The Founding Fathers facilitated the distribution of sovereignty because colonists worried about the strength of national governments and thus did not involve themselves in the process. Also, the founding fathers were suspicious of their colonists and thus did not encourage their involvement in the process. Elliot holds that “having dealt with the British Crown for so many years, the American colonies did not want to create yet another out-of-touch, national government.” Additionally, Americans held dearly their freedom and would only strongly accept self-established colonies. As such, it seemed normal to create own government grounded on sovereign state governments.
In “Excerpts from The Eyes of the Skin: Architecture and the senses”, Juhani Pallasmaa discusses the idea that people's senses have been dulled by both the advancement of society and the fact that we've started to focus and rely mainly on sight to perceive the world around us. As technology changes and moves forward, we begin to lose the naturalistic sense of life that we innately had inside of us as animals on this planet, and we get closer to not having to rely on that same naturalistic sense. Pallasma brings up the idea that we are sight-centered. What she means is that light overshadows the other senses and that society relies on vision too much. Sound is as necessary because, as Pallasmaa states, “buildings do not react to our gaze, but they do return our sounds back to our ears” (Pallasmaa 289). Society should not rely on vision much as it distances and separates humans from reality and the relationship they have. The other senses, such as touch, should be used, as it involves intimacy. Pallasmaa's argument is that of a vision-dominated society which blocks richer experiences in this world and limits knowledge and understanding. He does this through the intimacy of touch, tactile sensation and kinesthetic communication, and how vision is overused and it blocks imagination.
Authors use symbols to give insight on characters’ inner lives or foreshadow events to come. Colors are often used as symbols to describe situations and characters’ moods, for example colors such as red and orange can be used to show anger, danger, or to give caution. In “Tall Tales from the Mekong Delta”, Kate Braverman uses colors to describe the female protagonist’s feelings and to foreshadow her next decision. Braverman especially likes to use the color blue. Blue is mentioned about thirty times in this thirteen page story.
In the late eighteenth century the French Revolution had begun and England was finishing up its quest to build a world empire. England had captured many countries during the seven year war including Canada and India, but had lost its colonies in the War of Independence in America. Life was changing rapidly by the end of the eighteenth century with the beginning of industrialization. Out of the ashes of all the war and turmoil throughout the world at that time, an art form we now refer to as Romantic Poetry was born. Young writers were trying to escape from life that in their mind did not make any sense. They had enough of scientific knowledge, factual data, and intellectual reasoning. Their focus and interests were on people's feelings, their emotions, and a love for nature. This was also a close connection to the French Revolution and the reasoning behind the war, to place the focus on the people. Their written words were simplistic and easy to understand by most. You could compare the Romantics to the hippie movement of the sixties; the romantic writers wanted a change of pace from the thinkers and scientists from the Age of Enlightenment.
Banks have hidden fees and statements that they charge, a customer gets angry because they did not think of all the long term effects and how much it could add up to cost them. Giving free education is like bank’s hidden fees and statements. Of course it sounds great in theory, but how much is the American public willing to sacrifice and pay to get this “free” education? More taxes? Fewer choices? More government spending? More government debt? These are long term effects that the general public will be paying for, these are the hidden fees. The U.S. Government should not pay for two years of college tuition for every citizen who graduates from an American High School. The U.S. government debt is already in the trillions and owed to other countries, the kindergarten through twelfth grade public educational system is still disastrous, not to mention what the Universities would do if the government gave away education; This could not possibly add up to a good recipe for “free” education.
