If nothing else, Sam rasies new issues that I've never considered before which is his goal, right? I wouldn't say that my opinions or feelings change about given issues, but by being asked to consider those feelings and opinions, I'm at least more aware of where I'm coming from.I agree with some of the above comments that, at the beginning of the semester, I felt like I was learning a lot. Every class, I felt like I was inundated with new facts. However, these days, I feel like the tone of the class is usually the same. We may be learning new facts, but they all fall into the same over-arching categories, the same general message. Because we see so many numbers and facts, the weight of them feels further away from me.Today's class on modern day slavery, however, opened my eyes. Obviously, I knew a lot of those facts by reading Disposable People, but I felt like watching the video had a much greater impact on me than the book did. Stories in a book can make me think about some issues, but seeing the scars all over a slave's body and hearing a slave's feelings about the products that he helps create that was heavy stuff. After watching that video, I immediately decided not to eat chocolate again and promptly caved about two hours later. I'm a little bit disgusted with myself, to be honest.But throughout the class, I started thinking about all of the issues that exist in the world. Gay rights, sweatshops, environmental concerns, abandoned animals, modern day slavery how do we sort through all of these issues? How do we pick which ones to pursue as individuals, and as a society? I know that I'm a bleeding heart. If you tell me about anyone's hardship, I'll immediately internally vow to help that person out. But I forget these vows a second later, as soon as I'm confronted with another topic. I feel like, as an American society, we're constantly being asked to care about a million different causes, and I have no idea how to sort out which ones are the most important. Do we help where we think we'll have the most impact, or which problem most contradicts our core beliefs? Do we help where it's easiest, or do we help the small cause in hopes that we can help it to gain attention?I feel like, throughout the semester, Sam's been asking us to care about a million different things. I'm sure that he asserts these extreme viewpoints 1) because he believes them but 2) because he knows that passion can lead to even a little change on our parts, individually. But, quite frankly, I'm getting overwhelmed by the world's problems. The plight of the Native Americans, inequality in the US, and now modern day slavery. And maybe I should be a lot of them exist. At the same time, is my responsibility to myself, or to the world? What are my priorities, who should I be trying to help?I'm a firm believer in human rights and human connections in valuing the people around me and affecting the world positively, even in small ways. I believe that the most any of us can do is love the people we're with, to try to ease the pain of others. I would argue that the social worker who has no time for his or her family has contributed less than the housewife who loves & provides for her kids in an active way. I think, at the end of the day, we have an obligation to better the lives of those around us.But, now I'm not so sure. Does this mean that, as privileged Americans, we can forget about the rest of the world? I don't necessarily believe that, either. well, to answer your question, yes. Sam's class makes me think, and even if I don't have all of the answers, I'm at least trying to figure something out.
