A Coggle Diagram about Reunited Vietnam
- talked to my parents about their experiences and thoughts with/on the Vietnam War and communism's effects on it
- asked my grandparents what it's like over there now
, Blue Hat:
- What kind of solution would benefit to communism's effect on Vietnam and their starving and struggling inhabitants the most?
- How would a truly reunited, democratic Vietnam benefit the citizens and in what ways?
, White Hat:
- Vietnam is currently communist
- South Vietnam was close to democratic, while North Vietnam was communist, and the triumph of North Vietnam under Ho Chi Minh's influence during the Vietnam War lead to the downfall of democracy
- Now, Vietnam is only a developing country (thanks to communism!!!!!)
, Yellow Hat (of a reunited Vietnam):
- free elections, independent judiciaries, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, and freedom of speech
- free market & trade
, Black Hat (of a reunited Vietnam):
- it would risk lack of knowledge among the people
- it might cause the minority to get the short end
- it would allow mob influence
- it might experience election fraud
, Red Hat (about a reunited Vietnam):
- Thinking about my own home country being communist makes my blood boil. It would be ideal for Vietnam to be democratic. Looking at countries like Taiwan and South Korea today, it hurts me knowing that Vietnam could have been like them. I don't mean to put the blame on anyone, but if the US hadn't abandoned us, Vietnam would not be in the near corruption that it is currently in right now. I still have family in Vietnam, and it worries me that they're still living over there. Their food source is dying out, they are finding new chemicals and poisons in the food that they buy from the markets everyday, and at this rate, I don't think they can trust anyone of anything anymore. They will be granted US citizenship in 3 years, and I know that they can't wait to get out. It makes me feel guilty all the time I think about it, that I get to live a free, democratic life, when my family are afraid to speak their minds in public or online. The people of Vietnam do not deserve this. They deserve democracy. They deserve freedom. They deserve a life that the US are entitled to, the life that the Vietnamese could have had, if the US hadn't abandoned us.
and Green Hat:
- cutting off trade with Vietnam in hopes they'll transform to democracy??
- a real, written constitution with actual regulations to conform to
- elect/let the people decide who takes the political offices
), Human Trafficking
, Blue Hat:
- How can we bring awareness to society about human trafficking and it's effects on not only the victims, but also society?
- How could society contribute to help end human trafficking?
- How can we help people be more careful to prevent themselves from being exposed to things such as human trafficking?
- What could we do to aid those who have been personally affected by human trafficking?
, White Hat:
- Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally
- Human traffickers use violence, threats, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to compel adults and children to engage in commercial sex acts against their will
- Human trafficking occurs in a range of venues including fake massage businesses, via online ads or escort services, in residential brothels, on the street or at truck stops, or at hotels and motels
- 70% of victims are women
- 4 out of 5 victims of human trafficking are girls
- not legal anywhere in the world
- 2nd fastest growing crime in the world
, Red Hat (about ending human trafficking):
- I despise human trafficking with all my heart. This is the 21st century. Just when we thought that slavery was over, it's not. Just thinking about human trafficking makes my skin crawl. How can somebody be so cruel enough as to trick an innocent victim into unethical labor and/or sexual exploitation? It's sickening knowing that 75% of the industry, a $32 billion dollar one too, may I add, is for sexual exploitation, how 50% of human trafficking victims are children, and that there is nowhere for victims to run to. Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crime in the world, meaning that over hundreds of thousands of women, children, and even men, are being affected by such an immoral industry. It makes me so angry thinking about the human lives that are being disregarded and devalued in the illegal human trafficking industry. It's a sick and malicious practice, and even thinking about it infuriates me.
, Yellow Hat (of ending human trafficking):
- Human trafficking is worldwide. It can happen to anyone. With human trafficking gone, we would have one less thing to worry about, and could live in peace.
- It's a $32 billion GLOBAL industry. Imagine what that $32 billion could do if it were put to a cause that builds, rather than destroy human life.
, Black Hat (of ending human trafficking):
- N/A because human trafficking is one of the worst forms of torture and cruelty, and just simply disregards human value and importance
and Green Hat (of ending human trafficking):
- convicted traffickers will spend more time in prison, meaning they won't be out on the streets to preform more crimes
- human traffickers listed as sex offenders will give the public more caution towards them. If a person goes missing in that area, they can check in on this convicted sex offender
- sex and even human traffickers registered online will be in the government database, helping prevent offenders to trap children through social media
- increased fines for the offenders, which could be distributed to the victim/s, to help rebuild their lives
), Domestic Violence
, Blue Hat:
- What other ways besides those already presented in the media can we find to implement the effects of domestic violence to society?
- How can we help those that have suffered from domestic violence?
, White Hat:
- Domestic violence is the violent or aggressive behavior within the home, typically involving the violent abuse of a spouse or partner
- 85% of domestic violence victims are women
- most women are ages 20-24
- On average, 30 percent of women who have been in a relationship report that they have experienced some form of physical or sexual violence by their partner
- One in three women worldwide have experienced either intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime
, Yellow Hat (of ways to prevent domestic violence):
- safer, more positive and happy living environment for not only the abused, but also the children, who often witness it
, Green Hat (of ways to prevent domestic violence):
- mandatory classes before marriage on how to avoid domestic violence
- national commercials and/or radio advertisements
, Red Hat:
- In no way do I think domestic violence should be tolerated or acceptable. I loathe the fact that those in abusive relationships are belittled of their self worth, and are left feeling like they are nothing. Abusing a spouse or boy/girlfriend, physically, mentally, or even both, to the point where they feel like they are not safe in the home and are afraid of dying soon is not love. Those in abusive relationships are confined to their love for their abusers and I think that is always the saddest part whenever I read articles about them, that they're afraid to leave them. Women are the victims in domestic violence 85% of the time, and as a female, that is the most terrifying thing on my mind when contemplating whether or not to go into a relationship. My heart goes out to all those suffering from domestic violence, which often leads to other problems and issues, often mental, like self-doubt, low self-esteem, depression, and even more, in both men and women.
and Black Hat (of ways to prevent domestic violence):
- N/A, I believe that domestic violence should be prevented and that preventing it is the right thing to do
), Women's Rights
, Blue Hat:
- How can we find a solution to end gender inequality? Especially for women?
- How can we persuade people, at least nationwide, to look into gender inequality?
- How can we improve the conditions of women's rights currently?
, White Hat:- In 2015, only half of the world’s working-age women were in the labor force, compared to the 77% of working-age men
- Women with full-time jobs still earn only about 77% of their male coworkers’ earnings
- African-American women earn 64 cents and Latina women earn 56 cents for every dollar earned by a Caucasian man
- 62 million girls are denied an education all over the world
- Every year, approximately 15 million girls under 18 are married worldwide, with little or no say in the matter
- Female genital mutilation (FGM) affects more than 125 million girls and women alive today, which is recognized internationally as a human rights violation
- American women serving in Iraq or Afghanistan are more likely to be raped by a comrade then killed by an enemy
- In Saudi Arabia, women aren't allowed to drive and are discouraged from working jobs that would put them in contact with men. The unemployment rate for women is 34% for women, but only 7% for men
- Women aged 15-44 around the world are more at risk from rape and domestic violence than from cancer, car accidents, war and malaria
- One in five women on U.S. college campuses have experienced some form of sexual assault
, Yellow Hat (of gender equality for women):
- termination of gender discriminating laws
- equal rights for all
- women will finally be seen as equal to men and be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve
, Green Hat (of gender equality for women):
- Make gender equality part of training and education, implementing that young people are supported in whatever profession they desire to go after, regardless of gender
- start or join a club that focuses on gender equality and emphasizes the importance of it
, Red Hat:
- As a female during the 21st century, it still shocks me as to why women are still being treated as less than men. It just doesn't add up. Women have gained the right to vote, are able to serve in the military, and are allowed to work, but they're still not being payed as much as their men counterparts? They're still not being payed as much as they should be in the first place. It's frustrating reading about it and seeing the many women struggle with providing for their families, not making as much money as males, just because of their gender. No gender is better or more superior to the other, so why is it that men are still being payed more than women? Women are just as capable of whatever it is that men can do (with some exceptions, of course), so it does not make any sense for them not to be paid equally, not to mention, women being abused and treated as lesser than men in different cultures. This topic is one that I am very passionate about and I would do as much research as it would take for people to recognize women as the strong leaders that they are and respect them for who they are.
and Black Hat (of gender equality for women):
- N/A, because equality is common sense. There are no downsides of equality. Everyone should be treated as the equals that they are, that no race is more superior or better than the other.
) and Sexual Assault
, Blue Hat:
- How can we prevent sexual assault from happening?
- How can we educate young people on how to protect themselves from this happening?
- What would be the most effective way that will help eliminate sexual assault once and for all?
, White Hat:
- 1 in 5 women (20%) will be sexually assaulted while at college while only 4% of college men will be sexually assaulted
- College women have the greatest fear of being attacked
- 42% of women raped do not tell anyone about the assault
- Sexual assault is the most underrated crime, with only 5% of cases on college campuses are reported
- Rape results in about 32,000 pregnancies each year
- 42% of raped women expect to be raped again
- Every 109 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted.
And every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison
- About 3% of American men (1 in 33) have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime
, Yellow Hat:
- it would help close the gap between gender inequality
- more women (and maybe even some men) to be able to study at college and not be constantly worried or afraid about being sexually assaulted or raped
- Sexual assault is a global pandemic, so with the end of sexual assault, comes the freedom and basic human rights of approximately 150 million girls aged eighteen and under
- a better, safer planet where women have one less thing to worry for and live peacefully
, Green Hat:
- Pass laws on the federal, state and local levels to provide money available for the processing of rape kits wherever lack of money is preventing the processing
- Require campus police and administrators to report all alleged cases of sexual assaults to the local law enforcers and district attorneys so they can present the cases, rather than to college administrators and committees, who rarely do anything about it
- Coordinate some kind of public advertisements/campaigns to bring awareness to parents to keep an eye on their young ones and keep them away from men , women, or anyone that they don't trust to keep the children safe, educate parents and supervisors in detecting the signs of sexual assault and how to help victims deal wit hit and help them through it, teach men and boys that it is wrong to sexually abuse women, and if they do, that they will be punished, and for women and girls to know what they can do and how to prevent themselves from getting into sexual situations, like sexual assault
- Enforce police officers to use their unused rape kits to capture the rapist by DNA
, Black Hat:
- There are no cons to finding a solution to sexual assaults. Sexual assaults is a scarring misdemeanor that should not occur in the first place.
and Red Hat:
- Sexual assaults are unfortunately becoming more and more common every day. I just can’t believe how someone would even think about sexually advancing on someone without their consent. It’s petrifying knowing that the main targets of sexual assaults are college women, and as a female, aware of the fact that I’m going to college in four years, makes me almost not want to go to college at all. The worst thing about sexual assaults to me is that only a small percentage of sexual assaults are actually reported, due to the fear of not being believed or destroying their careers. And even when they are reported, most of the time, the rapists or offenders are let off easy, ending up with just a few months or at most, a few years in jail. But the thing is, a couple of years in jail does not compare to the amount of terror, pain, and scarring that the victim is left with. I cannot emphasize this enough, that it is women we’re talking about, hundreds of them, hundreds of women’s voices that are not being heard and taken seriously. Sexual assaults tie in with domestic violence, but more importantly, women’s rights. Once again, us females are not able to voice our opinions and ideas, and are confined to being “silenced” by men. When will this generation realize that women are people, not some objects that can be played around with? We are not to be victims of sexual assault, and the fact that sexual assault cases continue to increase every day is fearsome, to not only me, but the millions of other girls growing up in this generation.
