DN Monday, December 20, 2010: Answer two of the following questions:

HedgesNw-jf

  1. S. Korea Conducts Live-Fire Military Drill: Research how many people were killed in North Korea during the US-backed Korean War? Out of a population of how many? What’s the approximate ratio of how many killed to how many total?
  2. Chris Hedges: Obama is a “Poster Child for the Death of the Liberal Class”: Do you agree that Obama is leading us into neo-feudalism? What is feudalism, and what would be the new form of it? Citing another source, discuss the strengths or weaknesses of the US “liberal class.”
  3. Naomi Wolf vs. Jaclyn Friedman: Feminists Debate the Sexual Allegations Against Julian Assange: What do you think? Are the allegations legitimate? Should Julian Assange be extradited to Sweden? Who made the better points, in your opinion?

One Response to Feministas and Feminazis on Rape

    1. North Koreans killed in the Korean war were 1,316,579 according to Answers.com and 1,240,000 according to Wikipedia, though it is spilt by civilians and soldiers so I had to add them together. The population of North Korea in 1950 was 9,726,000. Which I found confusing because I thought I remembered you telling me that they killed one-third of the population.
    2. Feudalism was a set of political and military customs in medieval Europe that flourished between the ninth and fifteenth century. Neo-Feudalism is systematically increasing the wealth gap by increasing the power of the rich and decreasing the power of the poor. (Found on Wikipedia.) The strengths of Middle Class Liberalism were that they were passionate, open to new ideas, compassionate to the lower class, and brought about more social movements. Their weaknesses were that they were mostly white collared, higher education teachers, or wealthy. I couldn’t find any reference other then Wikipedia.
    3. Well, let me just say that I love a good debate and this was no exception. It was too emotional and catty on the part of Jaclyn Friedman to be a great debate. I agreed and sympathized with Naomi Wolf. Friedman from the very first comment personally attacked her but she kept a cool head. Friedman rudely kept saying, “I was a rape victim and you don’t speak for me.” It was just shitty debate skills. Of course, Wolf wasn’t speaking for Friedman – they were debating against each other! It was extremely frustrating yet invigorating to watch. The last thing I can say is: Wolf, thank you for some great points! I wish you could have debated against someone worth your time.
