Collectivism: the idea that a group is a priority and there is no “individuality”. One of the laws today that are collectivist is the gun law. Prohibiting certain people from carrying a gun. Even if it’s an emergency. Collectivism has its pro’s and con’s. I am reading the book Anthem by Ayn Rand and the idea of collectivism is expressed in it. Everyone has a name such as Equality 7- 2521. No one is allowed to have a special name, idea, friend, house, hair. shoe, clothes, etc.

In my book they are collectivist because they are a group and not an individual.

What do you think of Collectivism? Should it be allowed?

How does being a nerd make you money?

Study shows that the better grades you get the more adult pay you will receive. If you do better in school you will receive more money. Being popular doesn’t pay for your bills, clothes, family, etc. Being smarter could earn you more money because companies are more likely to want you to work for them. I could see why that is. I try very hard in school and hope that takes me somewhere. I have always been told your future depends on your life now. That is true and this study proves a strong point!

New Terrorist group on the world map…

In Nigeria a group of terrorist took kids from a school and is torturing them. My opinion on this tragic incident is that it shouldn’t have happened. It is not a accident and no one should have to go through this. Many people are affected.  The poor families and children and just the community. It hurt the whole country. There is nothing they can do and the children are being tortured and punished for nothing. They did nothing to deserve this at all.

Flowers for Algernon paragraph:

I’m directing Flowers for Algernon. The changes from the original text I would make are first I would have shown the doctors having a conversation in the beginning about how the operation could go wrong in the end. The medium that I would choose is a television show. The setting would be a popular U.S city I would make this take place in Chicago because that is a popular city that has lots of crime and would make the TV shoe more realistic and interesting. This would also add to the suspicion and keep the viewer on the edge of there seat. That would make them want to see more. If I could make more changes than I would. First I would make Charlie stay smart the rest of his life. I think it would be better if Charlie stayed smart. It would be more heartwarming and caring to people if he stayed smart. Charlie would be a better character and the movie would be up to date. Flowers for Algernon could be the latest and greatest TV show. It would be new and people would want to see it. People like happy endings and my change to the story would make it happy at the end.

Approach Paper Crash the Chatterbox

Kaylan Bond 03-22-14 1st block Crash the Chatterbox Steven Furtick Nonfiction

Approach Paper:

            The book Crash the Chatterbox is about how God helps you overpower the lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God. This book helps you understand how to tell yourself you’re more than just a person you are somebody. You can be somebody. You can overpower the lies that hold you back.

Steven Furtick is a brave, intelligent, observant and over powering individual. Holly Furtick is an amazing, beautiful, creative and loving mother and wife. The kids of this family are adorable, fulfilled, lively and playful.

A true key passage in this book is when they talk about hearing God’s voice above all others. This stands out because it makes me realize my true religion and what I mean in my life right now. It shows me that God has a plan for me and it means a lot for me and my family.

My opinion on this book is that it empowers and changes life’s… one at a time. I truly believe that this book is meant for true Christians. Pastor Steven showed great compassion in this book. My discussion questions are:

  1. How do I know when I am dealing with the Chatter box?
  2. What does it mean if I don’t know what to do in a life changing situation?
Furtick, Steven. Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God’s Voice above All Others. N.p.: n.p., n.d. Print.
