American Hostility

- From a biological perspective, one might say American hostility has been passed from generation to generation. Beginning with the brutal take-over of the land away from Native Americans to the brutal treatment of humans as slaves to hanging people as a form of punishment for law-breaking or because of being a member of a particular race to recent aggressions in the treatment of Guantanamo Bay detainees, Americans have a long history steeped in violence. With such a sadistic history, heredity must be to blame....   [tags: Violence]

Speculative Desires and an Unchanging Western Hostility

- The article “US Policy Toward Political Islam” by Stephen Zunes is a thoroughly researched topic. His depictions of a greedy, judgmental America are accurate and to the point. While there is a good chunk of useful suggestions that may have created less hostility from our Eastern counterparts, it is not logical or possible to say that following these sanctions out would have changed the outcome of the last ten years. What can be said of these ideas, is that following a more honest approach to politics through US policies would have given America a much needed transparency....   [tags: Article Analysis]

The Effects Of Desensitizing Children On Violence, Fighting, And Hostility

- Another effect is desensitizing children to violence, fighting, and hostility. This connects with empathy because desensitizing more or less decreases the empathy and emotion a person has. Desensitizing is a powerful tool and is used in therapy to” reduce or eliminate certain emotional responses through graded and supervised exposure to anxiety…” (Funk 23-39). For movies, desensitization is incidental because no one is decisively changing someone’s emotions, or at least the movie does not to make the audience become psychologically damaged that they end up hurting others and becoming aggressive....   [tags: Movie theater, Film, Aggression, Violence]
