The Measure Of A Man (2015)
The Measure of a Man (2015)
In the French movie, The Measure of a Man (2015), Thierry, a married factory worker with a disabled child has experienced humiliation and betrayal by the system in various jobs, and after one-and-half years of unemployment, at the age of 51, he lands a new job as a store detective in a supermarket.
Of course, Weber is a leader not only in intangibles, but on some very objective measures as well. He's the NHL's goal-scoring leader among active defensemen; he sits 10th all-time in power play goals among rearguards; he's tied for 15th all-time for game-winning goals among defensemen; and his 10 total seasons of 15 goals or more put him in a tie for fifth all-time among NHL blue-liners.
It is important to look at the circumstances of my life, not for pity, but because Dr. King himself said that "The ultimate measure of man" is not seen during times of "comfort and convenience" but during times of "challenge and controversy." My life could be defined by this quote from Dr. King. The "challenge and controversy"
His words roared throughout the country in the same manner as the profound words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Although Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech echoed throughout the Lincoln Memorial 51 years ago, his words still inspire today. In the wake of current events involving Ferguson, Missouri and the death of Michael Brown, many local and national community leaders showed the ultimate measure in the controversy of Michael's death by advocating for nonviolence protests despite the acquittal of the Ferguson police officer.
Dr. King's determination and perseverance displayed the ultimate measure of a man. For a more contemporary example, protesters in the cases regarding Michael Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner's choke hold death in New York City, has inspired a new generation to face controversy and make history. Protesters in New York exercise their freedom of speech by demanding for justice within the Ferguson and New York City police departments. They realize standing together during these challenging times will bring about definitive changes.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." These words were said by an inspiring man named Martin Luther King Jr.
I was measured like this at a certain point in my life. It started comfortable and easy. I was happy with my mom and dad and they were happy with each other. But as I grew older my parents' relationship did as well.
Like the MLK quote said, you are measured by how you handle things in moments of challenges and controversy. I handled my moments of controversy by doing my best in school and talking it out with my mom. My advice for anybody that's going through this is don't get upset over it. Just think of all the other family members that love and care for you. Think of how much power you have you can always get your point across to a trusted adult. You're not alone.
The quote, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy" by Martin Luther King, Jr. is a very meaningful quote based on his life experiences.
The politics of the Federation are somewhat hazy. In the loosest terms, the organisation maintains the structure and iconography of a Western liberal democracy, combined with an internal economy that seems to follow a successful socialist model. However, the Federation does appear to have some measure of economy, if only because we see characters trading and dealing with external cultures.
I would interpret a "No" response for the first measure and a response of any number lower than 10 for the second measure as dehumanization of members of Group X. If there are no reasonable alternate interpretation for these responses, then these are face-valid unambiguous measures of blatant dehumanization.
But neither above measure is the commonly used social science measure of blatant dehumanization. Instead, the the commonly used "measure of blatant dehumanization" (from Kteily et al. 2015), referred to as the Ascent measure, is below:
Note that participants are instructed to rate how "evolved" the participant considers the average member of a group to be and that these ratings are placed on a scale from "least evolved" to "most evolved", but these ratings are then interpreted as participant perceptions about the humanness of the group. This doesn't seem like a measure of blatant dehumanization if participants aren't asked to indicate their perceptions of how human the average member of a group is.
The Ascent measure is a blatant measure of dehumanization only if "human" and "evolved" are identical concepts, but these aren't identical concepts. It's possible to simultaneously believe that Bronze Age humans are fully human and that Bronze Age humans are less evolved than humans today. Moreover, I think that the fourth figure in the Ascent image is a Cro-Magnon that is classified by scientists as human, and Kteily et al. seem to agree:
The perceived humanness of the fourth figure matters for understanding responses to the Ascent measure because much of the variation in responses occurs between the fourth figure and fifth figure (for example, see Table 1 of Kteily et al. 2015 and Note 1 below).
There is an important distinction between participants dehumanizing a group and participants rating one group lower than another group on a measure that participants interpret as indicating something other than "humanness", such as the degree of "realization of cognitive ability and cultural expression", especially because I don't think that humans need to have "the full realization of cognitive ability and cultural expression" in order to be fully human.
1. The Jardina and Piston TESS study conducted in 2015 and 2016 with only non-Hispanic White participants had a Ascent measure in which 66% and 77% of unweighted responses for the respective targets of Blacks and Whites were in the 91-to-100 range.
As a politician, Debs was primarily a speaker and writer, skills he used to great effect in his campaigns for elected office. As a party leader, Debs had a tendency to avoid the many internal factional debates in the all-inclusive Socialist Party. In doing so he sometimes became, as contemporary socialist and early Communist Party leader James P. Cannon later recalled, a pawn of those who by every measure were far less the leader Debs was. 041b061a72
