|HOW THE HELL DO THESE WORK?|
Im currently taking a sociology class so no doubt many views, opinions, and musings will come from class discussion. Since we have just started our first chapter is on some of the original sociologists which often practiced "Armchair sociolgy". This is where rich white old men sit in their splendorous houses and smoking rooms and armchairs next to ordate fireplaces, surveying the world from a very limited point of view and believing that they can surmise the cause of economical or social problems. They are wrong. With such an excessively skewed look at the rest of the world many of their "realizations" have been simply thrown away.
|NOT CONDUCIVE TO LEGITIMATE REALIZATIONS ABOUT SOCIETY.|
My point is that every person everywhere on every subject is biased in some way or another. One of my favorite quotes is by Aristotle, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it". This says to me that one should consider every idea fully, yet take each with a grain of salt.
|Making sense since 384 BCE|
In closing i would ask that you the reader take my opinion with a grain of salt. I was raised in the U.S. therefore i am already have many biases that are present within each American, once again not a bad thing, just something to keep in mind!
|And yes that is Fox "news"|
