1. Do Toms Shoes Help Anbody?
It seems counterintuitive that companies who say “buy one, give one” does not actually figure a way to actually solve the poverty problems the world faces today. Many of these types of companies have to deal with people thinking whether or not this is true. When Toms donates shoes, people believe, that they will be gifted new ones once the old news wear out.
In most cases, Toms donates the shoes in school to children, who most likely already has a pair of shoes. Similarity, a handful of companies use the premise “buy one, give one” to use people into buying the products. Sometimes it is false advertising, and the higher ups gain the money instead of donating. These companies need to aid the poverty in the right way. The poverty stricken community need the aid they can, that will help them the rest of their life, rather than for the time being.
2. Anne Frank’s Diary
It seems counterintuitive that one of the most acknowledged diary, is not the full truth. Anne Frank knew she wanted to publish her diary, so she went back and rewrote her existing entries. The feelings that she had at a young age were erased, meaning that the diary is a work of fiction.
Anne Frank’s diary has never been taken seriously as literature. Reasons include, it was a diary, and it was written by a young girl. It is uttermost to say that the diary is fiction, but it should not be named as a historical document. Judith Thurman mentioned the skill that Anne Frank achieved in constructing her narrative. Even though the skill is subjective, it does not qualify as a document that should be worshipped. Although the diary may not be historical, Anne Frank should still be recognized as the wonderful writer she would have come to be.
3. White Folks get Prozac
It seems counterintuitive that one of the most used antidepressants is going under investigation of how it’s being used. More in-depth, these medications are being prescribed have nothing to do with the health status of the patient. Health experts believe that doctors who prescribe Prozac have nothing to do with the patient’s mental health rather than their race, or health insurance.
Prozac has been one of the best antidepressants for years. It was first introduced in the year 1987, and it “hit the jackpot.” Patients that have mental health issues such as anxiety, or depression, are prescribed these medications. There are always improvements within the healthcare system, including ethics. Relationships between the doctor and their patient do need to be improved. Although that is a problem, a patient’s race or health insurance status should have to do with the health care they need to receive.
