The Big 21st Century Satire
Social Conflict Theory is
A Marxist-based social theory which argues that individuals and groups (social classes) within society interact on the basis of conflict rather than consensus.
This Marxist-based theory helps explain why we have so many of the rights we have today. We can thank some pivotal characters who paved the way for tolerance, freedom, and liberty. While we are no where close to where we need to be, we have made huge strides in combating hate displayed by racism, intolerance for sexual orientation, and suppressing women’s rights. With small groups and individuals taking a stand for basic human rights, we’ve gained greater acceptance for other ideological beliefs that fall outside of the once conventional religious norm.
Women’s rights, homophobia, and sexism are just a few of the many social injustices that Nellie McClung, Audre Lorde, Peter Tatchell, and other famous figures stood up to. These figures left a legacy behind them that we benefit from and take for granted every single day, With these productive uprisings, we’ve also seen the effects of unproductive uprisings that have induced hate, deceit, and fear.
Trump has excited the worst in people and has allowed fear, hate, and bigotry to rule the United States of America. Obviously, not all Americans are OK with Trump being their Commander in Chief, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s there because America put him there. When a small group of people stand up for what they believe, in – anything’s possible – including putting an immoral human being into the Oval Office.
We’re sad to see our neighbors in such hardship, especially with all the recent issues that have tried and tested the United States over the last couple of months. Inclement weather, fire storms, domestic terrorism, and white supremacist groups, are just a few of the issues that have plagued the United Sates. It is during these hard times that American values are put to the test and real change occurs; however, when your Commander in Chief puts more time into his twitter campaigns about the National Football League and corporate taxes, instead of rallying the communities affected by these incredible tragedies, there’s something seriously wrong.
While it may only take one person or a small group of passionate individuals to change the world, it takes just as few to destroy it. We’re closely watching the impeachment meter and hope that the United States of America decides this reality TV star is unfit to be president.
