PART 1: A BELIEF THAT IS STRONGLY UPHELD.
A belief that is strongly upheld is the notion that it is the moral responsibility of members of society that are well off financially or otherwise to chip in and help the less fortunate members of society. This traverses the line of merely neighbor helping neighbor into international boundaries where one country helps another in time of crisis. This especially refers to the countries in Africa which are in most cases in need of various forms of aid varying from financial aid to medical and even psychological aid.
This belief was fuelled by the fact that no one chooses where they are born. As such one can get born into the most unfortunate of circumstances while another gets born into a life of luxury and excesses. It is thus the moral responsibility of every human being to help a fellow human being in need. Opinions contrary to this belief might argue that people need to work hard and be independent. The situation between the first world countries and the third world countries is however very different. This is because there are massive opportunities that are available it first world countries but unavailable in third world countries. It is thus very hard for a person in a third world country to make it irrespective of the effort they put into their work. There should therefore be a mutual consensus among the well-off nations of the world to chip in and help the poorer parts of the world.
PART 2: DIVORCE VERSUS LIFE
Divorce is indeed necessary and by all means an integral part of marital life and by extension a key part of mainstream society. This is because marriage is a complex socioeconomic venture with a great number of underlying and unseen risks as well as factors that tend to undermine the ‘holy matrimony’. This unwavering belief on matters matrimony was fuelled by the experiences of two friends. After dating for a while these friends decided to get married in a colorful and glamorous wedding. They were clearly having the time of their lives during the onset of their marriage but things started to change with time. The clearest indication that something was clearly a miss was the demeanor of both the bride and the groom a few months after their wedding. They seemed to exhibit antisocial behavior with hints of narsacism from the bride. Eventually the bride murdered her husband and then proceeded to omit suicide in a scene that can only be described as sad for lack of any better word.
The bride and the groom were unhappy with each other a few months after their marriage. Romance turned into frustration and love into hate. They however staid together in order to uphold the social validity of their matrimony. Had they been open with each other and explored the option of divorce at an early stage the disaster that ensued might have been averted and their deaths avoided.
The visual on page 66 presents what can be described simply as an ironic situation. This is because it is a visual of a Caucasian American proclaiming that they are the original inhabitants of America and in the process kicking a Mexican family out of the country on the basis of illegal immigration. The punch line on the visual is a native Indian American staring in disgust because Europeans are also illegal immigrants. The images on pages 72 and 73 are very contradictory or rather controversial as far as American immigration laws are concerned. This is because in the photos Diego Rincon only gets American citizenship status after going to war for America and dying in the process.
