I’m thinking of post-election protesters who’ve (rightfully) taken a stand against the bigotry and hateful rhetoric of Trump and *some* of his supporters ~ but who also voted for Clinton, a candidate with a long history of aggressively championing oppressive, sometimes violent actions which have resulted in the suffering, exploitation, displacement or death of millions, both here and in other parts of the world.

the next few weeks she wrote that "the Spolldings" had brought timber into the "Crik." She made no mention of the Spoldings on June 9 or on July 1, the dates given on the orders brought to William Howard, but she did note that Ephraim had gone to Pownalboro court on one of those days and to Vassalboro to "assist Brother Moore Rais his hous" on the other. Together the account book and the diary tell us how Ephraim Ballard "purchaced" logs for his sawmill. Contracting with men like the Spoldings, he paid in credit at the local stores, settling debts at court days and house-raisings, eventually balancing his own accounts with sawn boards.
Martha had a part in all this, as she noted on April 25: "Thee Spolldings brot Loggs. We had 9 men dind beside our own famely." But she did far more than support Ephraim's efforts. During that same week, she noted that a hired hand had performed an errand for her at one of the stores at the Hook, bringing home "6 galn of Rhum, 2 lb Coffee, 5 lb sugar, & some Tobacco & 1 bushl 1/4 of salt from Joseph Williams for me for assisting his wife in travil with her Last Child." A few days later, she reported sending twenty-one skeins of tow yarn to Mrs. Chamberlain to weave. The Howard account book tells us a great deal about the male economy of eighteenth-century Hallowell. Martha's diary shows how women and men worked together to sustain this eighteenth-century town.
The comparisons with Henry Sewall are more direct, since he, too, kept a diary. Like Cony, Sewall was a veteran of the Continental Army. He had come to Hallowell from York, Maine, in 1784, shortly after experiencing an intense religious conversion. Appointed clerk of the U.S. District Court in 1789, he was also for thirty-two years the town clerk of Hallowell and Augusta and for seventeen years the registrar of deeds for Kennebec County. His clear, almost mechanically even handwriting fills the pages of town and county records. The diary he kept from 1776 to 1842 is as remarkable in its own way as Martha's (though less steady).
In April of 1789, while she was fighting the spring freshet in Hallowell, he was far away in New York City attempting to establish himself in business. His diary entry for April 23, the
Thanks a bunch for your prompt response. God bless you.. 🙂
According to Bandura (1999) the four aspects of moral disengagement are moral justification, displacement of responsibility, dehumanizing the victim, and minimization of negative consequences. Cohrs et al. (2003) conducted a study to find out people’s attitude towards the Afghanistan War and how their attitudes related to the different aspects of moral disengagement. They concluded that in general, all four aspects were strongly related to the opinion of the Afghanistan War. Although this study showed strong relationships between processes of moral disengagement and attitudes towards the Afghanistan War, I think this study should be conducted differently because a majority of the participants were not from the United States. I think that this study should be conducted in the United States among Americans because this is a war involving Americans and I am interested in seeing how people from different parts of our country feel about the war and their reasoning behind it.
IV. Prevalence of Domestic Violence
Ultimately, I think our government is driven by greed and is aware of it. However, the members of government need to morally disengage in order to feel better about themselves.
V. Explaining Domestic Violence
- One of the more effective means government officials used in their attempt to eradicate traditional native institutions was to remove children from their families and enroll them in schools run by the government or by religious groups. Carolyn J. Marr , Librarian at the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle, examines the operation of northwestern Indian schools in her essay and even provides a daily schedule from the Cushman Indian School in Tacoma as an example of the degree to which students' lives were regimented. Although training in manual and domestic skills was often valuable, forbidding the use of native languages and strict limitations on visits home came fearfully close to realizing the goal of Richard Henry Pratt, founder of Pennsylvania's Carlisle School, to "Kill the Indian and save the man."
