Lieu et forme de pouvoir = Gun ISSUE

I’m going to deal with the notion of places and forms of power. I’d like to begin by giving a definition of this notion. In politics and social science, power is the ability to influence people's behaviour. In order to live together members of a community accept rules, regulations, and laws. This helps to create social cohesion but can also lead to conflicts and tensions. Even when authority seems absolute, there are always counter-powers which question it, aim at limiting its excesses and resist it.

NRA, stands for National Rifle Association, is among the most powerful special interest lobby groups in the US, with a substantial budget to influence members of Congress on gun policy. With various slaughter which arises for example recently that of a high school student which has kill 17 pupil has Parkland in Florida, gun issue is a real problem in USA. So how has NRA consistently succeeded in defeating new gun control legislation in the USA?

My presentation is made up of three main parts. I would first like to concentrate on the attack of NRA as a means of defense and then I will move on government answer more or less clumsy and finally I will take a look at society, victim of this war.

I) Attack as a means of defense

NRA aims at promoting firearms in the United States and the defense of the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States. Weapons are a part of the American culture. Describe in Gun We trust .Law in Oklahoma allow people licensed can carry a concealed firearm can choose to carry a weapon out in the open.  It shows that the NRA which support the small associations such as Oklahoma Open Carry has a real impact on the decisions governmental

II) Government answer more or less clumsy

The government has difficulty in restricting weapons for example in the case of the blind persons who have to benefit from the same rights as whoever, they have the right for all that to carry weapons. In certain cases not is in others yes for example that of the blind person who accidentally got out on the leg and who was seized his weapons, finally won the sentence and was able to get back its weapons

III) Society: victim of this war

However society victim of this conflict is confronted with a sad reality. We can quote for example the slaughter of a high school student who shot down 17 high school students to Parkland, Florida. We saw a document which is a victim staging Charlton Heston P. D.G. Of the NRA at the indifferent beginning of a new slaughter in a school then at the end he regrets having made nothing by crying

So it’s important to find a solution of the America nightmare because it make more and more dead people. I would have preferred stricter legislation about gun issues because take gun to anyone its take the ability to anyone to kill people. Fourth document which I choose be linked to the notion of spaces and forms of power because they show why NRA is powerful in USA. But this document can also be linked to the idea of idea of progress because find a solution to this problem is to progress.

Myth ET heroes = American Dream

I’m going to deal with the notion of myths and heroes. I’d like to begin by giving a definition of this notion. A myth can be defined as a story about gods or heroes, it can be a popular belief or a tradition or a false notion. A hero can be a mythological figure, a person who is admired for his or her achievements, a superhero or maybe a role model or an icon.

Myths proposes an explanation for certain fundamental aspects of the world and the society which forged or which conveys these myths. So what is the impact and the importance of myths and heroes for American society?

My presentation is made up of three main parts. I would first like to concentrate on the impact of the heroes and then I will move on impact of myths and finally I will take a look at consequences in society of this cults

I) Impact of the heroes

Heroes is a real or fictitious character whose which is recognized for these big actions. He is a member of the American culture for example in Dreamland of Peter Pismestrovic we can see many heroes of cinema with John Wayne, music with Marilyn Monroe and also historic culture of USA with the Mount Rushmore. We also saw a video showing Crazy Horse who is a monument built in effigy of Indians has who belonged the American lands what opposes the Mount Rushmore by showing that these mountains belonged at the beginning to Indians. This both document show heroes who represent character traits of American people and it’s for that this heroes became popular.

II) Impact of the myths

The myths are short stories supposed to teach us something, they thus have precise social functions .It are a part of the American culture with for example the American dream which is the idea which anyone who live in USA can with his work his determination can be prosperous. We studied the trailer of Golden Door which is a movie where a farmer lived in very poor conditions with a middle class young woman are leaving their country for America to live a better life. We also studied American Land by Bruce Springsteen which deal with a man who describe USA like a beautiful country where “There's diamonds in the sidewalk”. So this both document show outside vision which not reflect reality and the impact is the biggest waves of immigration of people who believe this myths.
