Comparative Mythology: What Similarities and Differences Between Mythos Reveal of the Human Mind

- The Greeks and the Norse are the two sectors of humanity most well known for their mythologies. Both countries have vastly different climates, the Greek were flourishing with their fertile Mediterranean soil and during the country’s prime it was considered a paradisical society. The Norse, however, were stuck with frigid stubborn land and short growing seasons. This is reflected in both mythologies as Greek Mythology, while still explaining heavy subjects such as death and illness, had a much more cheery feel compared to the constantly brooding Norse Gods....   [tags: Greek and Norse mythologies]

How Poets Reveal their Ideas and Feelings about Other Cultures

What Self-Criticism May Reveal: The Survival of the Cuban Government

- Criticism is not only difficult to receive, but is often unsolicited. Self-criticism can be even more difficult, but it can be highly revealing of one’s own flaws. Governments, especially those controlled by a bureaucratic-authoritarian state, will often view criticism of the state as a direct threat to their rule. In Cuba, as well as much of Latin America, filmmakers such as Tomas Gutiérrez Alea found themselves drawn to the problems of neocolonialism and cultural identity. From this collective movement, the New Latin American Cinema emerged....   [tags: government, bureaucratic-authoritarian state]

Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ban in the Military

- In September 2011, the United States lifted the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which restricted gay, lesbian, and bisexuals from openly serving in the military. This was the first time in American history in which people of every sexual orientation could serve openly (“11 Facts About,” n.d.). This was a momentous occasion for some and not so much for others.

The Act That Ignited the Revolution
