The World According To Lincoln R.

Editorial

Globalization helps thousands of people get closer and closer to getting above the poverty line and helps communicate around the world. That is why globalization is a good thing. The so called sweatshops are considered as a bad thing, but that is just a stereotype. The sweatshops provide jobs for so many people, and if those jobs went away people would be out of a job and fall away from the poverty line. Jasmin, a sweat shop worker said thanks to sweatshops she might be able to start her own business. Also, globalization makes things cheaper for society and makes things easier to coordinate. That's why globalization is good for people and their needs and wants. Just another example is because it allows the world to trade. For example a lot of things are made in Vietnam. If globalization wasn't a thing, the United States or Australia would never be able to get the products made in Vietnam. That is why globalization is a good thing for people and their needs.

Every year people die and are put in debt from attempting to climb mt. Everest, and every year people succeed in climbing mt. Everest. Clearly, it would seem that there is no way that people would actually take the risk to climb it, but no. People say that it's their life long long dream and they disregard the risks of death. In 1996 there was a crew climbing mt. Everest, they all died because of some bad weather. A couple years ago there was an ice avalanche and it killed 16 Sherpas. Not only is there a risk of death but also financial debt. The exposition can on an average cost $65,000, and that can place a person in a conundrum because the climb would usually takes 3 months and it costs a lot. That person would be taking a extremely long vacation and it would cost a lot of money. So in general, the risk is too great just for a "fantastic experience".

Q&A

How might having a valuable resource affect a region?

Having lots of natural gases the world needs can be a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing about having lots of natural gases is that the government can sell and use them. Once sold the government would get money and be able to increase health care and education. Life expectancy would go up, unemployment rate would go down and government spending would be more efficient. Per capita and the Gross Domestic Product would go up. A region would be so much better off with lots of natural gases, right? No, wrong! There would be raising conflict everywhere about who gets what or who has what. The Persian gulf war was based entirely on a dictator wanting more oil and invading countries. Not to mention all of Africa except two small countries were invaded for their riches by European countries. Wars are mostly caused by either land, religion or wealth and those aren't going to change very much. This is important because if countries don't or can't handle their wealth well, they end up in a pretty bad spot, but handled well, money and wealth will be tossed around to business to business to government.

The oil industry in Saudi Arabia is a foundation of the economy that allows trade and government spending.

How do people adapt to living in a desert region?

One question many people look at when studying desert regions is how do people adapt to living there. The two main adaptations people have made are they become nomadic herders and they use specific types of crop planting. The reason people have become nomadic herders is because meat is a source of many foods and because if the herders stay in one good location, they will overgraze, over eat and ruin the good land forever. Overgrazing will ruin all good land, and will only promote desertification. The other key adaptation is people plant cash crops using methods that trap the very few water in place during, before, after droughts and when flash floods come, a dam is in place to stop it from washing the crops away. These methods and adaptations are key to living in a desert region because food is an essential part of life everyone needs. This can also get much surplus with trading opportunities.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

There are centrifugal forces in the Eu and Europe, but there are also forces for the EU. One force is that there are over 20 languages in Europe which makes communicating and trading harder. If the Eu made a document they would have to translate to 20 different languages and print more than they would have to. At meetings translators would be everywhere telling everybody what one person said. Messages would be really hard to communicate as well. Another centrifugal force is the wealth difference between the east and the west. In the west it cost more to live because it is wealthier and in the east it cost less to live because it is poorer. That's when businesses suggest that if all the factories are moved to the east then they don't have to pay workers as much as in the west. Then the western people get mad at the easterners for stealing factory jobs. These are some reasons why there are centrifugal forces that divide supranational countries and organizations. Although that is true there are reasons why the EU is a good thing. One reason is because trade is a lot easier. The reason is because they have pulled down the borders and destroyed tariffs so free trade is available. Also, it allows people and citizens of one country to move freely around because the borders are down. This is why there are forces for supranational

What is the most efficient form of government

Representative democracy is the most effective form of of government for many reasons. In this type of democracy (representative) people elect representatives to act and make choices on the citizens behalf. These electives are more educated than the average joe and have a good understanding of what to do in situations that others wouldn't know what to do. The representatives are necessary because not everyone has the time to vote for each little thing. The other part of representative democracy is that it's a democracy. Everybody can participate in a democracy and the power is separated equally to everyone. The society makes up the majority of the government because everybody can suggest opinions and there is not just one person in charge. Representative democracy is the best form of government

These people are voting for the the two elects Donald trump and Hilary Clinton , this a democracy and everyone can put in their opinion. Hilary and trump are representatives and is running for president. They represent the voters choices and beliefs.

What makes a good citizen?

A citizen is a registered person part of the society in a country that have rights and responsibilities. Citizens have rights such as the right bear arms, freedom of speech, freedom to petition, to vote and freedom of movement. Rights are created by the society and what the people want. The government and laws do not create rights. Citizens have responsibilities as well. These responsibilities can be paying tax, going to jury duty and to tolerate others. Sometimes your responsibilities and rights as a citizen collide. Say a citizen went to the movie theatre to see a movie. If he/she was confused he/she would be allowed to ask a question because he/she would be exercising his/her freedom of speech. The rules of the movie theatre say that at no point during the movie can you talk. He/she would have to obey the theatres rules because he/she is on the theatres property.

All citizens have the rights that their country gives them. If those rights or basic rights are not met it could usually end in a rebellion. Not only do they have rights but they have laws to keep them in place, safe and a non-threat to others.
