It impacted some positively, but many more in a negative manner. Darwin’s theories, as proven were the cause of the holocaust and will remain one of the important cause for the rest of eternity. “Man selects only for his own good: Nature only for that of the being which she tends.” ― Charles Darwin Bibliography page: - Bergman, Jerry. “ Journal-of-Creation.” Darwinism and the Nazi Race Holocaust. 1 Nov. 1999 - www.creationism.org/csshs/ - http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_germany02.htm - http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsorce/holocaust/history.html - http://www.yesterday.uktv.co.uk/warzone/worl-war-two/nazi-germany/article/what-national-socialism/
Also, as individuals of the postmodern era we are conditioned to respect privacy. Modern author Aldous Huxley’s ironic scientific novel Brave New World advises that technological advances can diminish human identity as well as value as is evident in the progressive post modern world. The modern world was the gateway into the pre-industrial growth of the world. Great minds of the Modern period, such as Huxley, Freud, Mach, etc…, have allowed today’s society to open our eyes and see the world in our own perspective. Although, technology has blocked our obligation of nature, it has brought has one step closer to unveiling the secret of life, the unknown.
Social Darwinism was a set of theories developed by various people during the 19th century. It was the adaptation of Darwin theory of evolution applied to human social behavior and ability to survive compared to other human beings. It can now easily be seen that these theories could be used to justify racial discrimination and they have been used in this way throughout history. This misconception of Darwin’s theories popularized by various academics in the west gave western nations to treat other nations badly. People like French man Joseph Gobineau had already come up with race supremacy ideas before Darwin’s theories of evolution had started to become a popular idea.
Karl Marx is perhaps the first in a series of late 19th and early 20th century theorists who initiated the call for an empirical approach to social science, theorizing about the rise of modernity accompanied by the simultaneous decline in traditional societies and advocating for a change in the means of production in order to enable social justice. Marx’s analysis of modernity reveals his conceptualization of modern society as being dictated by the rapid advancement of productive forces of modern industry and the corresponding relationships of production between the capitalist and the wage laborers. The concept of modernity generally refers to a post-feudal historical period that is characterized by the move away from feudalism and toward capitalism,
There's just something about destruction that is appealing. To conclude, it is clear that the horror of war causes humans to act like savages in their own lives. Secondly, gangs can be a cause to being savages... ... middle of paper ... ...ngst humans in our own lives. These reasons clearly state that although civilization keeps society in order, savagery still has a big impact on civilization today in an overwhelming number of ways. Works Cited • Barnard, Annie.
It is evident that World War II still affects the world today, but are these repercussions the aftermath of a master plan for destruction? The Nazi Party and Hitler were the most significant characters for World War II and thus, they truly made history, however, they made it worse. Many different causes for this devastation have been concluded starting with the end of World War I and the harsh blameful Treaty of Versailles, the new found control in Germany, and the Great Depression; even though was most harmful in America, affected the world in its entirety. Are these the factors that led to the ‘Final Solution’, are these the problems that encouraged Hitler to seize the world? There were many elements prior to World War II leading to the annihilation of Jews, Hitler’s experiences in World War I greatly influenced his outlook on warfare and the Jewish, another predominate factor was the approval of building the camps and chambers in Germany, and lastly the documented intentions for the ‘Final Solution’.
Modernity has both, good and bad impacts on humanity. The good side of it is that people started labeling genocide as a new issue, instead of categorizing it as warfare and they demanded justice. Genocide is considered a crime against humanity. The negative side of modernity is the part where new advanced technology made mass killings easier providing with resources, weaponry, technology
Hitler’s Roots in Darwin One would agree that the Nazi holocaust actually happened and was devastatingly tragic. It is also not a very great jump of faith to realize that one of the many factors that produced the holocaust and possibly World War II was the belief in survival of the fittest and if the fit were to survive as part of evolutionary progress the weak must be eliminated. Hitler and his supporter’s motives are very hard to diagnose. As the title of this paper suggests, the role of Darwin’s eugenics played a significant role. Darwinism warranted and sought the Nazi views on both race and war.
In the words of John Green, “The truth resists simplicity”. Assigning the blame of WWII to the Treaty of Versailles is far too simple of an explanation. The Treaty of Versailles, which ended WWI while sanctioning and punishing Germany, forced Germany to pay reparations. These reparations are said to have caused economic challenges in Germany, which allowed Hitler to take control on nationalist fervor. Thus, the story goes, that the Treaty of Versailles made Hitler’s rise to power, and his starting of WWII, inevitable.
Industrialization led to urbanization, which in turn led to food shortages and growing tensions and eventually rebellion. Those rebellions are what unified Germany into one country, a country that would quickly become an industrial leader and a world power. With all of the power that industrialization provided the Western World, they had both the means and reason to imperialize. Darwin’s natural selection led to Spencer’s Social Darwinism, which led to the Western World believing that it was superior to less civilized societies. They had the responsibility to bring civilization out into the world, and imperialization was the way to go about it.
