  • Quinney's Social Conflict Theory

    As a critical observation of Quinney’s theoretical basis, the writer contends his social conflict theory is not fully developed, and lacks corroboration firmly supporting its assertions regarding class conflict and crime causation. In fact, Quinney fails to point out the non-supportive evidence that cuts against social conflict theory. Mutchinick et al., (1990) states Quinney has failed to explain why then do nations with lesser or little class conflict such those practicing socialist…

  • Education Reform In Mexico

    In 2013, Mexico performed below average on each OECD educational test, yet invested the same mean amount of money as other OECD countries in their educational system.

  • Analysis Of Howl By Allen Ginsberg

    sacrificed children, for the machine that has become an American capitalist state. As Frank Casale wrote in “Literary Contexts in Poetry: Allen Ginsberg’s ‘Howl,’” “The Beats… saw older American expressions of individuality being replaced by corporatism, strip malls, and tract housing, all of which stressed similarity and conformity instead of difference and individuality.” Ginsberg simply extended on that notion that Moloch’s “monstrous bombs” were destroying youth and love while stripping…

To begin, let us examine Marx and his belief on why capitalism would inevitable…

  • Personal Narrative-Racial Conflict

    I remember waking up with a bloody face. As I entered junior high, my family had moved to a town that had a racist streak. On the first day of school I made a remark identifying myself as believing in civil rights. The statement’s consequences arrived several months later when I was beaten unconscious by a fellow white student. At that time, I had never had a black friend, but the madness imposed on African Americans stormed into my world with the physical intimacy of violence. What do we know,…
