Trump’s view: “Everything is negotiable”- including slavery.

I think we all know which side of The Civil War Donald Trump would have been on.  Individual rights do not seem to be his strong suit. His governing style is to press forward forcefully by majority rule, or even more often, by unilateral decree. Although he convinced so many hard-working Americans to vote for him, he has shown no indication that his presidency will help them. His presidency will help big business and billionaires.  Trumps’ lack of compassion for immigrants, refugees, and even animals, shows us his ease in putting the dollar ahead of right and wrong.

Always sympathetic to business and the bottom line, would he not sympathize with the slave owners and their need for “affordable” labor? His actions show that he would. His own clothing line and his daughters’ are made in China. Why? Because Trump does not value human rights and the standards of labor set by this country.  It was just reported that Ivanka Trumps’ clothing line is manufactured in a factory where Chines workers are paid the equivalent of $62 for a 60-hour workweek, below even China’s standards. According to CNN, who ordered and traced pieces from Donald Trumps’ fashion line, products were all manufactured outside of the United States in countries where he could pay very low wages. CNN discovered Trump shirts made in a Honduras factory where workers earned $1.30 per hour.  Even worse, Trump products were also found to be manufactured in Bangladesh, where the average worker earns 33 cents per hour.  Working conditions in Bangladesh are some of the worst in the world.

Trump justifies this use of cheap, often abusive, labor. You may be thinking- sure, this is bad, but they are getting paid- slavery is different. Ok. Trump has made a huge point of comparing himself to and praising President Andrew Jackson. In fact, he just said that Jackson, had he been President at the time, would have successfully avoided the Civil War.  I don’t doubt it.  Jackson was a slave owner. Some have portrayed him as a benevolent slave owner, but the facts indicate that he was a slave owner, a slave driver, and a vicious one.  On one occasion, he supplemented a reward for his runaway slave with a bonus for anyone who also gave him 100 lashes.  He spoke violently against abolitionists, vowing to protect the Southern way of life much as Trump vows to protect their guns.

The South overwhelmingly supports Trump- some of his loudest and most visible supporters are Confederate flag wavers/wearers, and white supremacists. Trump idolizes Andrew Jackson. Trump avoids health, safety, and wage laws to protect workers by going where they are not protected. Trump justifies it all. Trump would justify the allowance of slavery to preserve the union, if not for it’s own sake. Trump has said “Everything is negotiable.” Does anyone believe that Trump would have refused to negotiate the issue of slavery? How many Trump supporters still do not disavow slavery? Why are Confederate memorials honoring those who fought to keep slavery and white supremacy still standing, an issue passionately defended by many in the South? Why are they proud of the Confederate flag? They are not ashamed of their past- Germany is ashamed of the Nazi flag, Trump supporters are nostalgic for theirs. These are the people who elected Trump. Trump would have saved the U.S. from the Civil War. Think about that, and what the world would look like today had he been President then.  Now think about what the world is going to look like in the future, because he is President now.

One thought on “Trump’s view: “Everything is negotiable”- including slavery.

  1. Debates or perspectives –
    Refer to debates like as nature or nurture, reductionism vs. holism or the perspectives in psychology. For example, would they agree or disagree by using a theory or the findings within the study?
    What are the ethical issues of your research? –
    Does a study involve ethical issues this kind of as deception, privacy, psychological and physical harm.
    If research is biased towards men or women it does not deliver a clear look at within the behavior that have been studied. A dominantly male perspective is known as an androcentric bias.
    Is the theory / study ethnocentric? Psychology is predominantly a white, Euro-American organization. In some texts, over 90% of studies have US participants, who are predominantly white and middle class. Does the theory or study being discussed judge other cultures by Western standards?
    This raises the issue of whether it is morally and/or scientifically right to apply animals. The main criterion is the fact that benefits must outweigh costs. But benefits are almost always to humans and costs to animals.
    Animal research also raises the issue of extrapolation. Can we generalize from studies on animals to humans as their anatomy & physiology is different from humans?
    The PEC Program
    It is very important to elaborate on your evaluation. Don’t just publish a shopping list of brief (just one or two sentence) evaluation points. Instead make sure you expand on your points, remember, good of evaluation is most important than quantity.
    Whenever you are creating an evaluation paragraph make use of the PEC process.
    E xplain how and why the point is relevant.
    Discuss the C onsequences / implications on the theory or study. Are they positive or negative?
    For Example
    ( Point ) It is argued that psychoanalytic therapy is only of benefit to an articulate, intelligent, affluent minority.
    ( Explain ) Considering psychoanalytic therapy involves talking and gaining insight, and is costly and time-consuming, it is argued that it is only of benefit to an articulate, intelligent, affluent minority. Evidence suggests psychoanalytic therapy is effective easiest if the client is motivated and has a positive attitude.
    ( Consequences ) A depressed client’s apathy, flat emotional state and lack of motivation limit the appropriateness of psychoanalytic therapy for depression. Furthermore, the stages of dependency of depressed clients mean that transference is a lot more very likely to create.
    Utilizing Research Studies with your Essays
    Research studies can either be knowledge or evaluation.
    Those that refer to the procedures and findings of the study, this shows knowledge and understanding.
    When you comment on what the studies shows, and what it supports and challenges about the theory in question, this shows evaluation.
    Producing an Introduction
    It is often most excellent to write down your introduction in the event you have concluded the main body for the essay, so that you just have a proper understanding to the topic area.
    If there may be a word count for ones essay try to devote 10% of this to your introduction.
    Ideally the introduction should;
    Identify the subject of your essay and define the key terms.
    Highlight the major issues which “lie behind” the question. Let the reader know how you will focus your essay by identifying the main themes to be discussed.
    “Signpost” the essay’s key argument, (and, if potential, how this argument is structured).
    Introductions are very important as initially impressions count and they can produce a halo effect around the mind from the lecturer grading your essay. At any time you get started off effectively then you may be added possibly to be forgiven for that odd mistake later one particular.
    Crafting a Summary
    So a multitude of students either forget to write down a summary or fail to give it the attention it deserves. If you will find a word count for ones essay try to devote 10% of this to your summary.
    Ideally the summary should summarize the key themes / arguments of your essay. State the take home message – really don’t sit to the fence, instead weigh up the evidence presented with the essay and make a decision which side belonging to the argument has added guidance.
    Also, you may possibly like to suggest what foreseeable future research may really need to be conducted and why (read through the discussion section of journal articles for this).
    Don’t include new info / arguments (only knowledge discussed on the main body belonging to the essay).
    At any time you are unsure of what to put in writing examine the essay question and answer it in a single paragraph.
    Points that unite or embrace several themes can be employed to helpful effect as part of your summary.
    The Importance of Flow
    Obviously, what you create is important, but how you communicate your ideas / arguments has a significant influence on your overall grade. Most students may have similar data / content in their essays, but the more desirable students communicate this related information concisely and articulately.
    As soon as you have completed the primary draft of your essay you must check if it ‘flows’. This is definitely an important feature of outstanding of communication (along with spelling and grammar).
    This means that that the paragraphs follow a sensible order (like the chapters in the novel). Have a intercontinental structure with themes arranged within a way that permits for a sensible sequence of ideas. You might just hope to rearrange (cut and paste) paragraphs to your different position inside of your essay if they don’t appear to fit in with the essay structure.
    To improve the flow of your essay make sure the last sentence of just one paragraph links to initially sentence on the next paragraph. This will help the essay flow and ensure it is easier to learn.
    Finally, only repeat citations when it is unclear which study / theory you happen to be discussing. Repeating citations unnecessarily disrupts the flow of an essay.
    The reference section is the list of all the resources cited inside essay (in alphabetical order). It shouldn’t be a bibliography (a list with the books you utilized).
    In effortless terms every time you refer to the name (and date) of the psychologist you may need to reference the original source in the information and facts.
    In case you have been working with textbooks this is very simple given that the references are usually in the again from the book and you can actually just copy them down. Once you have been implementing web-sites then you may have a problem as they can not make available a reference section for you to definitely copy.
    References might need to be established out APA style :
    Author, A. A. (12 months). Title of succeed . Location: Publisher.
    Author, A. A. Author, B. B. & Author, C. C. (yr). Article title. Journal Title, volume variety (issue amount), web site figures
    A very simple way to put in writing your reference section is use Google scholar. Just type the name and date on the psychologist within the search box and click around the ‘cite’ link.
    Next, copy and paste the APA reference into the reference section of your essay.
    Once again remember that references really want to be in alphabetical order according to surname.
