Many examples of violence written of in The Wretched of the Earth were taken from the struggle for independence in Algeria. Also the writing is sympathetic towards colonized natives. Fanon claims decolonization causes violent actions from both settlers and natives and creates intolerant views toward the opposite party. Violence from Europeans during the colonization is a tactic used to keep the natives oppressed and a resistance minimal. The police officers and soldiers of the settlers used excessive force to show dominance and create an "atmosphere of submission" in native communities (Fanon, 38).
Throughout history, imperialism has shown to play a major role in every country’s society. In Joseph Conrad’s novella, The Heart of Darkness, he tries to portray the effects that imperialism has on different groups and it causes destruction for everyone that is involved. He takes us on a journey to show us what imperialism really looks like and most of the time it is not good. Even though imperialism claims to be an advancement forward, it can really harm those who are affected by it. In the Heart of Darkness, the main character Marlow has a chance to experience different ways that imperialism is presented.

The presence of the French combined with fundamental ideas of superiority and entitlement lead to intense oppression in the form of racism, brutality, and injustice. The Algerian citizens responded with nationalistic attempts opposing French rule, but their rebellion only lead to the French attempt to pacify them. Despite all efforts to remain in Algeria, the French occupation grew to become widely unpopular among French citizens in the mainland, leading to eventual retreat and independence. In the long run, the Conquest of Algeria may have lead to Algerian independence, but it also left both countries in a state of chaos.
The prevalence of racism in Colfax leads to many violent outbreaks, thus making violence a reoccurring theme in the narrative. In Nicholas Lemann’s work, Redemption: The Last Battle of The Civil War, Lemann illustrates the themes of racism, and the
Shyntia Briones Women’s Violence and Africa Dispora Profesor: D. Turner Fall 2011 A Concept of Violence Thoughout history acts of violence have been committed against humanity, based on evidence read in this course, the most targetted has been women and even more women of African descent. An act of violence, it’s consider both, to prevent someone other than one self from meeting the basic needs and spectrums represented as a form of crime, in which the actions victimizes somebody; physically, emotinally and mentally. The rise of violence intensified when colonizers conquered a New World, the lack of acceptance of different people, allowed White supremacy mentality to become a tool of subordination that worked in cycles and affected, first indiginous people and then African slaves. Even thought it was mentioned that violence was mostly targeted to women, in the essay “The Hidden Struggle” by Amina Mama she states that: “The assumption that violence against women is necessarily or intrinsically ‘male’, for example, has been challenged by black women in the West.” (Mama, 00). One of the most horrendous crimes that agravates physically and emotionally at the victims and society in general are itentional homocide, rape, and aggrevated assault, and in the case of men, castration during lynchings by White men.
A Revolution of the Distressed The world today is faced with many obstacles concerning all the peoples of the world. The issues range from globalization to the state of the environment with every political, economic, and human interest lying in between. It is these human interests that will be brought to light by examining the revolutions of the Incan indigenous beginning in the early part of the twentieth century. Running parallel to their North American neighbors, the native peoples of Peru have lived in seriously impecunious conditions as the result of ethno racial discrimination handed them by their colonial occupiers; Spanish speakers. These revolutions, namely Shining Path, would eventually define the gap between the rich and the poor, the 1st and 3rd worlds, and those peoples struggling with the effects of a traditional world falling into the hands of modernity.
Eventually would mean that people in each territory would claim citizenship rights in America. In a nation already violently subjugating its Black, Red, and Yellow populations, the idea of bringing more people of color into the fold was disturbing. Within this debate, African Americans publicly asserted that U.S. imperialism meant the extension of American racism across the seas. Racism overseas from imperialism was strongly a problem. Adding to this volatile mix was the cementing of European colonialism across Africa and Asia.
Since the 1970s through the 1990s Somalia has gone through much civil strife between different clans for the total control of Mogadishu, the capital city (Anup Shah, 2010). As a result of artificial creation of borders by European imperialism, the colonialist took it to themselves to partition up the natives and clans of African countries. Through the years, ethnic groups of Somalia and other African countries have intensified resulting in many humanitarian catastrophes and unsettling of civil conflict. The indirect effect of this caused widespread civil conflict not only in parts of Africa, but other parts of the world. It wasn’t until the 1900s that most of the countries affected by colonialism ... ... middle of paper ... ...at human beings deserve equal respect.
Culture has a huge influence on how people view and deal with psychological disorders. Being able to successfully treat someone for a mental illness has largely to do with what they view as normal in their own culture. In Western cultures we think that going to a counselor to talk about our emotions or our individual problems and/or getting some type of drug to help with our mental illness is the best way to overcome and treat it, but in other cultures that may not be the case. In particular Western and Asian cultures vary in the way they deal with psychological disorders. In this paper I am going to discuss how Asian cultures and Western cultures are similar and different in the way they view psychological disorders, the treatments and likelihood of getting treatment, culture bound disorders, and how to overcome the differences in the cultures for optimal treatments.
Revelations from the Tuskegee syphilis experiment forced the medical community to enact policies to prevent such a tragedy from repeating itself. Consequently, the Belmont Principles and Declaration of Helsinki were created in order to establish a universal code of ethics for research involving human subjects. Both the Belmont Principle and Declaration of Helsinki emphasize that the well-being of research subjects triumphs over any research goals. Although these documents were created in order to simplify and unify medical ethics, their simplicity allowed for continued debate. In the editorial “The Ethics of Clinical Research in the Third World,” Marcia Angell argues that the current shift towards the privatization of clinical trials has diminished standards expressed by the Belmont Principles and the Declaration of Helsinki.
