Question:

What is the concept of "privilege" in the contexts of cultures and societies?

Bobby T.
Answer:

Privilege is a social theory that special rights or advantages are available only to a particular person or group of people. The term is commonly used in the context of social inequality, particularly in regard to age, disability, ethnic or racial category, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion and/or social class. Everyone has a degree of privilege in the culture or society in which they reside in, as in a continuum. Privilege is not static and may be increased or decreased.

Question:

What is the construct of discrepant self-esteem?

Bobby T.
Answer:

If self-esteem is considered to be a combination of two subcomponents (implicit/explicit self-esteem), problems may arise if implicit and explicit self-esteem are discrepant or non-congruent. Explicit self-esteem is conscious self-evaluations that are overt and deliberate, while implicit self-esteem is unconscious, fast-efficient, and automatic self-evaluations. When implicit and explicit self-esteem is not congruent, individuals’ desire to establish congruity between them is necessary and is manifested in maladaptive behaviors such as narcissism and dissonance.

Question:

What were the main causes of the Civil War?

Bobby T.
Answer:

The main causes of the Civil War were Slavery, States' rights, and secession. The South relied heavily on slavery to sustain its economy and without free labor, serious threats to southern wealth were evident. However, the north viewed slavery as morally and ethically wrong and sought to extinguish the practice in the United States. The south viewed any infringement of their traditions and practices as a violation of states' rights, or the idea that all states were free to determine its own destiny as it saw fit without interference from the Federal Government. The north disagreed with this stance regarding the practice of slavery, which they considered a violation of basic human rights. Finally, the south voted to secede from the United States, as many southern states viewed the Union as a voluntary agreement between states. However, the north did not agree with this view, as many northern states viewed the Union as an agreement of perpetuity that could not be broken.
