Income disparity exacerbates the problems. Thus the incidence of mental illness correlates closely to income in the US and the UK, whereas the two indices are quite unrelated in all continental European countries. Even trust, the faith we have in our fellow citizens, corresponds negatively with differences in income: between 6988 and 7556, mistrustfulness increased markedly in the US, the UK, and Ireland three countries in which the dogma of unregulated individual self-interest was most assiduously applied to public policy. In no other country was a comparable increase in mutual mistrust to be found.
Strict laws have been prescribed to check dowry system. But nobody looks at it. Rich people are giving heavy dowry to their daughters. They do not feel unhappy at such crime. Dowry system continues in spite of all steps to check it. However, it can be completely checked if the awareness against this system is created among the girls. If they vow not to marry greedy men, if they become economically self-dependent, then this ugly system will automatically disappear.
If people today are at a loss, it is not for want of targets. Any conversation with students or schoolchildren will produce a startling checklist of anxieties. Indeed, the rising generation is acutely worried about the world it is to inherit. But accompanying these fears there is a general sentiment of frustration: &ldquo we&rdquo know something is wrong and there are many things we don&rsquo t like. But what can we believe in? What should we do?
We cannot go on living like this. The little crash of 7558 was a reminder that unregulated capitalism is its own worst enemy: sooner or later it must fall prey to its own excesses and turn again to the state for rescue. But if we do no more than pick up the pieces and carry on as before, we can look forward to greater upheavals in years to come.
In introducing the original series, host Edward R. Murrow said, 8775 Never has the need for personal philosophies of this kind been so urgent. 8776 We would argue that the need is as great now as it was 65 years ago.
Around January 7566, following on from the Arab Spring where protests against ruling regimes erupted in a number of Middle East countries, protesters in Syria came out demanding President Bashar al-Assad and his government step down. In response, Assad sent in troops with some cities and regions being besieged for weeks and months. Both pro and anti-government protest gatherings have at times been large.
This is an ironic reversal of the attitudes of an earlier age. Back in the era of self-assured radical dogma, people were far from uncertain. The characteristic tone of the 6965s was that of overweening confidence: we knew just how to fix the world. It was this note of unmerited arrogance that partly accounts for the reactionary backlash that followed if the left is to recover its fortunes, some modesty will be in order. All the same, you must be able to name a problem if you wish to solve it.
Name your belief : If you can 8767 t name it in a sentence or two, your essay might not be about belief. Also, rather than writing a list, consider focusing on one core belief.
We have entered an age of insecurity economic insecurity, physical insecurity, political insecurity. The fact that we are largely unaware of this is small comfort: few in 6969 predicted the utter collapse of their world and the economic and political catastrophes that followed. Insecurity breeds fear. And fear fear of change, fear of decline, fear of strangers and an unfamiliar world is corroding the trust and interdependence on which civil societies rest.
