Adherence to the principle of productivity therefore threatens public health as well as the planet (actually, these are the same thing). By committing us to what is impossible, it makes for madness. The Nobel Prize-winning economist Angus Deaton said something like this when he explained anomalous mortality rates among white people in the Bible Belt by claiming that they’ve ‘lost the narrative of their lives’ – by suggesting that they’ve lost faith in the American Dream. For them, the work ethic is a death sentence because they can’t live by it.
is it okay to not talk about a problem in which i used my creative side, and instead just my creative side and how it influences me? I am into photography and writing, which is how i express myself. Because of this, I pay attention to close detail and look at things from different angles and perpectives. I know those skills are important in a doctor because they could influence their patients easily. (A pediatrician is what I want to study to become, i plan to major in biology.) I guess my question is: Is this considered a good answer to the prompt?
A lot of it must come down to how young girls are overly sexualized by the media, and put under pressure to become sexually active at a young age. Education also puts too much emphasis on just girls, and reinforces the fact that it is the mothers that are usually blamed for teen pregnancy while the fathers often take no responsibility and get away with it. Young men need to know that they can’t behave in this way, and understand the pressures of becoming a father, while girls need to become more assertive and be able to demand the use of contraception even if they’re drunk and their partner doesn’t want to use it.
