Paternalism

It is an established fact that poverty has now been re-defined, measured, and used as the basis for an industry. In every industry, someone or a group of people makes a profit, so who profits from the poverty industry? The faces behind this line of business, where do their morals lie? To what extent are they aware of the conundrum of keeping the poor poor ( with the ideology of providing free help) and making a profit. When this industry is viewed on a large scale, its destruction to underdeveloped countries is very apparent. Google defines poor as ” lacking … Continue reading Paternalism

W.C. Bagley’s View on Education

Marc Cadet English Composition Prof. Barber Although William Chandler Bagley had some common positive views on education, as do some philosophers, his approach to education was extremely narrow.

Hearing my daughter Aarah call me “Daddy” excites an emotion in me that is strong beyond measure. That word makes me want to give her the world. It makes me want to give her the candy that she is asking for when I know I should not. It makes me want to wrestle her (her favorite thing to do with me) even when mom says “No, you guys will break something!” … Continue reading From Father to Daddy

Gravity

It happened in slow motion. Her right foot slid from underneath her. The left hand holding the tray flew backward as if vigorously summoning someone. The contents of the tray defied gravity for a split second then splattered across the floor. In a simultaneous motion, her left foot lost ground, and her face formulated a horrific surprised “o.” Then her buttocks hit the cold concrete floor with a thump! The expression on her face was that of a woman in intense unexpected labor pains (as seen on television). As if on cue, her head became the most mobile part of … Continue reading Gravity
