The Importance of Work - The Importance of Work During the birth of this country, Puritans had to work hard to ensure the success of the new state.

A Survival Ethic and Tailored Morality in African Traditional Religions - In a number of African Traditional Religions there exists a varying sense of morality. In Mama Lola author Karen McKarthy Brown states that Vodou morality is a “survival ethic.” Brown goes further and states that morality in Vodou is tailored to the situation and to the specific person or group involved.

One of Brown's best explanations of why this is so is because there is no Golden age in the past and no heaven in the future so nothing is valued higher than survival of oneself and the survival of one's group....   [tags: vodou, empowerment, spirits] 846 words

Each layer constitutes perspectives and beliefs about oneself, other individuals, and the world (Griffin 114). Self-disclosure, the process by which we “peel back the layers,” is a gradual process that is motivated by what we perceive as the outcome of an interaction.

His de-motivation is revealed by the fact that he goes to work but does not “do [his job] like [he] used to”, as his commitment for being a police officer is no longer present. Whilst his disenchantment with his role as a police officer is obvious in his belief that his career is over, as white captains no longer achieve promotions (Atlebeker; 2005: 173)....   [tags: choice, independence, police work]
