Essay on egalitarianism

But the truth is that while people may dress differently, pray differently and eat different foods (though we all like to share and swap with each other, to be honest), there is much more that unites us than divides us. It is unclear from the article about what is on the verge of disappearing, but I know my life and the lives of really everyone I know are not so different to how they were prior to 2001 other than experiencing the same changes as everyone else with the internet and so on. Our TVs remain swamped with American produce and believe me you can still get plenty of hamburgers in every town in the UK – some of them even produced by immigrants.

Virtue-signaling among elites who are critical of the very protocols that led to their own success serves as a psychological mechanism to alleviate guilt about privilege. And when an elite deprecates its own culture, the ripple effects widen upon reaching the masses. The combination of market capitalism and personal freedom can enervate a population, misleading people into thinking that their bounty is unending and natural, and giving them the latitude for cynicism, skepticism, and nihilism about the sources of their privilege. In the West, a narcissism follows that oddly manifests itself in thinking that human sins are almost exclusively Westerners’ own.

Centered on the dialogues and publications of the French “philosophes” (Voltaire, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Buffon and Diderot), the High Enlightenment might best be summed up by one historian’s summary of Voltaire’s “Philosophical Dictionary”: “a chaos of clear ideas.” Foremost among these was the notion that everything in the universe could be rationally demystified and cataloged. The signature publication of the period was Diderot’s “Encyclopédie” (1751-77), which brought together leading authors to produce an ambitious compilation of human knowledge.

The backbone of our society is agriculture and it is the main occupation of our rural society. Globaliasation has helped the farmer through new high yielding varieties seeds, high-tech equipments, better knowledge of agricultural practices, agricultural call centers and many other innovations in agricultural sector. Trading in grains has opened up new avenues for farmers. Guar gum trading has become household name in Rajasthan. Balance of agriculture is shifting from grains to cash crops for higher profits. Floriculture and horticulture are new trends in agriculture. Microcredit facilities and Kisan credit cards facilities have decreased dependence on the moneylenders. Self Help groups ( a concept borrowed from Bangladeshi slef help groups) has increased the independence of women. Globalisation has ushered in a new era of competition in the agriculture sector. Now, our farmers have to compete with highly subsidized crops from the western world. Owing to this competition, Indian farmers are forced to sell their crops at much lesser price. Suicide rates are increasing. Although the developing world is increasing pressure on the western world against its protectionist policies at the WTO forums, not much has been achieved. We need to negotiate better trade agreements with the western world. The practice of monoculture has led to decreased genetic diversity. It has made our crops susceptible to damage due to lack of genetic diversity. The introduction of disease resistant genetically modified crops has started showing decrease in yield and the old variety of cotton (which was drought resistant) has vanished. The increased yield due to fertilizers and excessive use of ground water has reduced the fertility of soil. Bio-fertilizers are being introduced. Some of the affluent farmers have taken advantage of the globalization and have reaped heavy benefits whereas most of them have been reduced to penury.

Utopian overreach and the legacy of negative, unintended consequences continues among American blacks through the policy of Affirmative Action . Riley believes that, because of racial preferences, many blacks were accepted into elite institutions for which they were not academically prepared. He points out that, in the University of California system, when a ban was imposed on racial preferences in 1996, black graduation rates rose by more than 50 percent, illustrating how affirmative action policies were limiting black students’ success.
