Milton was looked on by many feminists, Ã¢â¬Å"of or relating to or advocating equal rights for women,Ã¢â¬ (comma before quotation mark) as rather chauvinistic in the way he portrayed Eve. In, (delete,) Paradise Lost, there are many examples of Eve being slighted (comma and substitute well with while) well Adam remains unscathed. **** HavenÃ¢â¬â¢t Developed introduction completely **** When Eve first enters the world, (comma maybe) she awakes, Ã¢â¬Å"Under a shade on flowÃ¢â¬â¢rsÃ¢â¬ ¦,Ã¢â¬  by a lake. In putting Eve under shade, (comma maybe) Milton shows that she is not one hundred percent in accordance with God. Eve wondered where and who she was and then she proceeded to look at her image in the water. (Revised sentence) Ã¢â¬Å"There I had fixt mine eyes till now, and pinÃ¢â¬â¢d with vain desire, had not a voice thus warnÃ¢â¬â¢d meÃ¢â¬ ¦,Ã¢â¬  is EveÃ¢â¬â¢s (Ã¢â¬Ë might be needed) words to Adam. This action shows how Eve is so vain that she would sit for eternity unknowingly mesmerized by her own image. All it takes though to move Eve from the lakes edge is the voice of God who she trusts without question. Milton makes (made because past tense) Eve out to be dim because if most people were to hear a voice they would inquire (on) who(m) it was. However, in this case, (, might be needed) Eve just trusts (trusted if you want to make it past t ense) the voice right away (immediately, for a better word) foreshadowing her trust in anyone who speaks. This shows how Milton is chauvinistic also (Do you need Ã¢â¬Å"alsoÃ¢â¬ ) because he is infe...

My Theory of Personality Personality refers to a combination of long-lasting and distinctive behaviors, thoughts, motives, and emotion that typify how we react and adapt to other people and situations. (Plotnik, 2012) Many psychologists, like Freud, theorize that it is a combination of many factors that affect the personality. Many of these factors ranging from early childhood development and unconsciousness to rewards and punishments. I have chosen four concepts that I believe contribute the most to the development of the personality and will explain why.The concepts I have chosen to be part of my very own personality theory are: childhood experiences, interpretation of experiences, and observable behavior. Alfred Adler, an Austrian medical doctor and psychologist, once said that we develop our desires and drives during our childhood then our whole adulthood becomes affected by these childhood experiences. People keep striving during their adulthood to fulfill the desires they have developed during childhood. (Radwan, 2008) Childhood experiences are the first lessons you learn, the first observations you see, and are what I believe to be the basis of personality in adulthood.For example, if a child grows up with an overprotective family, she/he will learn to fear strangers and have a lot of insecurities. But in adulthood they will have to deal with that fear, in such a way that it might transfer to another fear like a fear of taking risks or trying new things. Growing up, there are always situations when you have to meet new people or interact with strangers, and sooner or later you get over the insecurities you have about meeting new people and become friendlier, or you keep your anthropophobia and become very isolated.Personality traits you learn at a young age sticks with you throughout your life even if you forget about them, you're unconscious mind still puts them in to effect on a daily basis. Interpretation of experiences very from person to person. Ã¢â ¬Å"Kids need to feel badly sometimes,Ã¢â¬ says child psychologist David Elkind, professor at Tufts University. Ã¢â¬Å"We learn through experience and we learn through bad experiences. Through failure we learn how to cope. Ã¢â¬ Some people might take overbearing parents as a sign of love and affection.While on the other hand a different person might see it as suffocating and annoying. Depending on how they interpret these situations of over-protection by their parents will build on their personality. (Marano, 2004) The child who sees the overbearingness as love will embrace and project it as an adult. But the child who sees the protectiveness as suffocating will want to take more risks and be more outgoing as an adult. A real question I have is why do we interpret these situations the way we do.Most of the time I realize the way I react to certain situations is the same as the way my mother would have reacted. Maybe it is because we spent a lot of time together in my teen year s. Observable behavior is basically what you see people do and how they act. There is a phase people say to one another that, in its simplest form, means take note and execute. Ã¢â¬Å"Pay it forwardÃ¢â¬ . Paying it forward is when you notice someone going out of their way to do something nice for you. And in return you do the same for someone else.In a way it is supposed to start a chain reaction and sooner or later more and more people will be kinder to strangers. But after a while the chain end due to someone not paying it forward. Maybe they didn't notice or they were not paying attention. And when it comes time for them to pay it forward they think nobody has done it for them, so why should they do it for someone else? So, they do not help this person out. That is observable behavior, people learn by watching, and it can change them to be friendlier or ruder.In my theory of personality, childhood experiences, interpretation of experiences, and observable behavior all contribut e to it. Each has its very own contribution towards a person's personality. Weather it is from early childhood and how the child is treated or young adulthood observing your environment and learning from your environment. Even how you see certain situations, you can see the positive side or the negative side. Just one behavior cannot be the only reason for a person's personality. It takes many different events to establish it.

Rent. To most people it is associated with an apartment, house, or another object. This word rarely conjures pleasant memories, but more often annoyance and stress. However, when someone mentions rent to me, my mind races to some of the most memorable experiences in my life. When I hear the word Rent, I immediately see an eclectic Broadway production, overflowing with talent, adventure, and magic. I picture scantly clad actresses, strutting across the stage. I envision stunning duets and thought-provoking lyrics. That single word transports me to a different time and place. In order to adequately depict my feelings, I must start at the beginning. In the fall of 1996, I embarked on my maiden NYC voyage. Armed with a camera,Ã¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦As the 1996 Pulitzer and Tony Award Winner, I had long thought of it as my personal unicorn. Something I had heard and dreamt of, but would never experience myself. As we dressed for the show, my thoughts were flooded with images and ideas. We descended the hotel stairs, hailed a taxi, and arrived at the theatre; while I remained in a pleasant daze. My first impression of the Nederlander met and exceeded all my expectations. I had envisioned an old theater, forgotten by the Broadway elite. As we walked to the door, we were able to see the wall signed by the cast and photos of the premier. The theater itself had a rundown feel to it and left you with the distinct impression that the magic was within the walls and on stage. As we entered the doors, I soaked in every thing. Our seats were located in the center, orchestra section, which gave us a perfect view of all the action. As the lights dimmed and the music began, I realized that my dreams were becoming a reality. I knew each of the songs, the names of every cast member, and the sequence of events. The story, which was based off the Italian opera La Boheme, was fresh in my mind. I could picture each of the characters, Roger, Mark, Mimi, and all the others, long before they took the stage. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s hard to explain my exact feelings as I watched this show.

With over two hundred countries participating, the Olympic Games is easily considered as one of the largest multisport event known to history. The Olympics are held at a different country, and even more rarely at the same city. For a country to be chosen to host the Olympics, the countryÃ¢â¬â¢s National Olympic Committee (the countryÃ¢â¬â¢s representatives for the Olympics) nominates a city (from the country they represent) that they think has potential in hosting the Olympics nine years prior to when they wish to host the Olympics. It is a two year process that consists of: Application Phase, Candidate Phase and the Election of the Host City. The country that wins the election is given seven years to prepare for the Olympics.

Question: Discuss about the Role of Community Nursingfor Tolerant Pilot Programs. Answer: Ways to deal with enhancing access to administer to underserved populaces in Afghanistan. The accompanying areas look at various ways to deal with enhancing access to medicinal services for hindered populaces. Tolerant Pilot Programs Guide parts started in auxiliary care as a method for helping minority or underserved patients with growth. These gatherings were known to be monetarily, socially, phonetically and instructively burdened in interfacing with the intricate areas of the medicinal services framework that recognize, analyze, and treat disease. The tumor guide part is depicted in some detail in this segment as it is generally entrenched and more broad intercessions have been created from applying a similar model in different conditions. There are four expansive ranges where guides can contribute most to wiping out differences in malignancy results: aversion and early recognition; medicinal services get to and coordination; protection scope; and assorted qualities and social competency. Pilot parts in disease plan to expand screening take-up, accelerate analysis after introductory test outcomes and encourage the patient trip through the wellbeing framework all through treatment and development Ostroukh, And rey (2012). In the event that the opportunity to conclusion can be shortened, for instance, incongruities at the phase of analysis can conceivably be decreased and growth results progressed. The guides depicted in the malignancy writing might be prepared laypeople from the objective group or medical caretakers working from inside the wellbeing framework. Understanding guides vary from other social bolster specialists and care facilitators in that they adopt an adaptable strategy to tackling whatever issues emerge instead of conveying a pre-characterized set of administrations. The patient pilot writing in the territory of disease is fundamentally from the United Nation route should be recognized from virtual route devices for patients to give online data and support. These are not gone for burdened populaces and are probably going to be unavailable for those with low levels of proficiency in English. States and concentrates on underserved minority populaces who have insufficient or no medical coverage. Guides have worked at tending to social, instructive and language boundaries to screening and contacting individuals who are detached from the wellbeing framework. Five projects were assessed at the season of production, and these recommended great results in enhanced rates of screening and follow-up for patients and in addition, the significant wellbeing administration's capacity to connect with, track and bolster patients, and to speak with and manufacture trust with burdened populaces. Troubles with assessment are noted, including the requirement for a mo re full meaning of the guide part, and the improvement of proper measures of administration adequacy and cost viability specifically populace bunches Bidder, Benjamin (2012) Guides in Essential Care Various Afghanistan District Health Boards have executed pilots in essential medicinal services. While just some of these guides are particularly gone for youngsters and youngsters, all are coordinated at high needs populaces. One case is that executed by the West Coast District Health Board. The administration utilizes four lay guides, who are outstanding locally and comfortable with accessible administrations. They bolster patients with complex clinical and social issues influencing their capacity to get to medicinal services and social support in the meagerly populated locale. Initially directed at patients with tumor, this has now been stretched out to take in different patients with long haul mind needs. Most patients (around 60%) are alluded through direction ranging from shape filling to settling a debate between a patient and their work and income manager. Persistent fulfillment seems to have been high and patients are accounted for to have been less focused on once obstructi ons to care were dealt with what's more, they could focus on getting admirably provides details regarding this administration, depicting its advancement, reason and impacts in light of use information, study results, and meetings with the pilots Pincock, Stephen (2015). The creator has noticed that in the wake of seeing this model in real life, she inferred that the administration may increase the value of the right now extended workforce in essential care, especially in an inadequately populated rustic locale, for example, the West Coast. Their techniques to enhance get to incorporate facilities situated in strip malls with neighboring open transport, a stroll in administration without any arrangements required, a low expense structure, connected data between centers so patients can go to any center, broadened hours, and social support gave by clinical family guides. As indicated by their site the guides are for the most part abroad prepared GPs and medical caretakers who are not yet enlisted in Afghanistan. Guide benefits in essential social insurance depicted in the universal writing take after much an indistinguishable model from those in disease screening and determination yet the writing is moderately inadequate. One of the best created. The administration serves a low-pay populace where inconsistencies, for example, destitution and perpetual anxiety are exacerbated by the quantity of individuals who don't have citizenship. Is attention to administrations low, as well as administrations are divided and inhabitants frequently confront long qualification and enrolment systems. Moreover, most who utilize the administration have phonetic and proficiency challenges. The administration is phone just and does not select customers but rather bargains just with the individuals who call them Hansen, Peter (2008). There are two arms to the administration. A Benefits and Enrolment Department helps qualified customers access open help programs. An inventive association with the Afghanistan has empowered customers to give data by telephone so that a staff part can finish applications on the web and submit them with a recorded telephonic mark. The other arm of the administration works with group accomplices to give a solitary get to indicate wellbeing related data and referral to administrations Anyangwe, Eliza (2013). Confinements were the long hold up time from referral to being seen by a group wellbeing administration, particularly emotional well-being administrations, and the withdrawal of a few of the taking an interest businesses in view of the financial downturn in 2009-2010. Transport to arrangements at a facility turned out to be a specific hindrance even with the inclusion of the pilot. After the venture completed, just a restricted adaptation ended up being manageable with a blend of open and private gifts, a little measure of boss endowment and unassuming client expenses. The administration was exceptionally effective with the important groups; the guides progressed toward becoming learning intermediaries in wellbeing as well as on numerous other social issues, for example, convenience, business, and money related issues, and in addition producing exercises to assemble limit and strengthening for what has to come. Group individuals looked to them to deal with any issues with wellbeing and social administrations, for example, going with them to doctor's facility or to social or welfare administrations to translate and advocate for them. Nevertheless, the dedication and benevolence of the guides prompted them investing significantly more energy than they were utilized for helping group individuals, regularly to the weakness of their own families. Large portions of them ended up plainly focused and over-burden by their prosperity and did not trust they could support the part long haul Rao, K (27 May 2009). Group Wellbeing Laborers The pilot part has impressive cover with the group wellbeing laborer part, the essential distinction having all the earmarks of being the more broad wellbeing advancement that Community health workers every now and again go up against in groups, for example, screening for diabetes, and conveying classes in nourishment, medical aid and mischance counteractive action. Parts of Community health workers portrayed in the writing spread a wide range outreach what's more, case discovering, group wellbeing instruction, interpretation, organizing transport, interfacing individuals to social administrations, and at times case administration under the supervision of a medical attendant or social laborer. They may be completely paid, mostly paid, or volunteer, formal or casual, lay or expert. Community health workers normally invest the greater part of their energy out in the group yet might be connected with a therapeutic administration where they book arrangements for patients, send updates, a nd liaise between various parts of the wellbeing division for patients. Suggestions Support the community health workers association with the group. The way that the adequacy of the work of the community health worker depends completely on his or her association with the group is shockingly regularly neglected. Many projects concentrate on clinical preparing, supervisory agendas, coordination, to the avoidance of exercises that bolster the group relationship. Viable projects have situated the entire program to bolster and reinforce each cooperation that a community health worker has with group individuals. Numerous cases of such endeavors are given all through the paper, from open acknowledgment of community health worker work by bosses to employment associates that bolster the progressing discourse between group individuals and Community health workers. Programs should persistently ask what should be possible to advance valuable associations Steinhardt, Laura; David P. (2010). Utilize numerous motivators. In a large portion of the projects evaluated, impetuses were actualized in a specially appointed way as opposed to as a component of a methodical program. It is valuable to distinguish the elements of each of the motivators used to comprehend which are the basic capacities and how those might shift in light of the community health worker part and sort of group. Inherent motivating forces work to advance a feeling that the work is advantageous, while outward motivators incorporate compensation and expanded status inside the group and with associates. Obviously, both characteristic and outward impetuses ought to be executed and checked. Community health workers keep on playing a critical part in numerous worldwide essential medicinal services programs. While proceeding with their preventive and group preparation errands, Community health workers are progressively getting to be noticeably required in-group based case administration of common youth infections . The Community system lays out three components of execution and depicts distinctive sorts of groups where those components are proper Arur, A (22 October 2009). Conclusion All in all Community health workers are not paid compensations in light of the fact that the ministry of health or benefactors do not view pay rates as reasonable. However, Community health workers are frequently considered responsible and directed as though they were representatives. Community health worker programs must perceive that Community health workers are volunteers, regardless of the possibility that they get little money related or nonmonetary motivating forces. They are volunteering their opportunity to serve the group. Keep on understanding your program. Many projects do not comprehend why their Community health workers drop out.

Nowadays, it became quite fashionable sociologists and political scientists to discuss the essence of Caribbean peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s existential mode as such that derive out of their possession of strongly defined Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢. In its turn, this identity is being defined as something that has very little to do with the qualitative essence of native populationsÃ¢â¬â¢ tendency to assess surrounding reality through ethno-cultural lenses.Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on The Caribbean Identity specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More Apparently, people in the Caribbean are being assumed capable of adopting an open-minded perspective onto the very concept of identity, as opposed to be concerned with exploring the subtleties of their individuality in essentially tribalistic manner. After all, since most Germans, Brits and French do not have objections against being referred to as Ã¢â¬ËWesternersÃ¢â¬â¢, why should Dominicans, Puerto-Ricans and Haitians, for example, have objections against being referred to as simply Ã¢â¬ËCaribbeansÃ¢â¬â¢? And, once the existence of a distinct Caribbean identity is being confirmed, it will provide the advocates of such an identity with a legitimate justification to look into gaining additional academic credits by designing Ã¢â¬ËtheoriesÃ¢â¬â¢ as to how Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ should be explored by those who are believed to posses it, in the first place. After all, according to multicultural paradigm, regardless of what ethno-cultural identityÃ¢â¬â¢s qualitative subtleties might be, it should never ceased being celebrated: Ã¢â¬Å"Visibility establishes who we are. It supports the naming of the Caribbean identity in America; it gives context to our being and history to our belongingÃ¢â¬ ¦ So my fellow Caribbeans, my fellow Americans, let us celebrate [identity] togetherÃ¢â¬ (Nelson, 2007, p. 3). Nevertheless, the actual realities of Caribbean living point out to the fact, unlike what the proponents of a strong Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ would like us to believe, the natives in the Caribbean proper continue to think of their existential identity as something quite inseparable from the color of their skin and their culturally-religious affiliation. And, given the fact that the color of peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s skin in the Caribbean, ranges rather dramatically from country to country, the very idea of a unified Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ appears conceptually fallacious. As Schmidt (2008) had pointed out: Ã¢â¬Å"With regard to the multiple dimensions of Caribbean culture(s) one has to accept that culture can no longer be defined as a self-contained entity but as something full of discontinuities, repetitions and contradictionsÃ¢â¬ (p. 2). In our paper, we will aim to explore the validity of an earlier articulated suggestion at length, while arguing that, as of today, there are no objective preconditions for people in the Caribbean to posses Ã¢â¬Ëtrans-ethnicÃ¢â¬â¢ sense of identity. In his book, Anderson (1991) came up with particularly valuable observation, in regards to the discussed subject matter: Ã¢â¬Å"Nationness is virtually inseparable from political consciousnessÃ¢â¬ (p. 135). What author wanted to say is that, the subtleties of how one perceives its national/social identity cannot be discussed outside of what defines such individualÃ¢â¬â¢s ability to indulge in abstract reasoning.Advertising Looking for essay on ethnicity studies? Let's see if we can help you! Get your first paper with 15% OFF Learn More For example, prior to French Revolution of 1789, Europeans were not even aware of such notion as Ã¢â¬ËnationÃ¢â¬â¢. And, the reason why, during the course of 19th century, this notion had obtained a politically legitimate status, is that EuropeansÃ¢â¬â¢ ability to rationalize lifeÃ¢â¬â¢s challenges, had led them to realize the sheer outdate dness of system of social stratification, based upon artificially drawn lines between Ã¢â¬ËnoblesÃ¢â¬â¢ and Ã¢â¬ËcommonersÃ¢â¬â¢. Alternatively, due to realities of Globalization, more and more Europeans now grow to realize the outdatedness of the concept of Ã¢â¬ËnationÃ¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬â the fact that, as of today, there are no borders between countries of E.U., confirms the validity of an earlier suggestion more than anything else does. Nowadays, more and more people in Europe are willing to refer to themselves as simply Ã¢â¬ËEuropeansÃ¢â¬â¢, as opposed to being referred to as French, German, British, Italian, etc. What had made such a situation possible? The partial answer to this question is contained in Lynn and VanhanenÃ¢â¬â¢s (2002) book. While being endowed with rather heightened ability to operate with abstract categories, Europeans were naturally predisposed towards assessing their identity in intellectually flexible manner Ã¢â¬â hence, their tendency to t hink of it along social rather than ethnic lines. The same, however, cannot be said about the majority of people in Caribbean countries. And, as history indicates, peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s lessened ability to indulge in abstract reasoning is being reflective of essentially tribal workings of their psyche Ã¢â¬â hence, these peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s preoccupation with exploring their Ã¢â¬Ëethnic uniquenessÃ¢â¬â¢ as the actual source of their identity. In part, this explains why, for example, in Caribbean countries, there were no incidents of local populations having revolted against intellectual oppression of Catholic Church, as it used to be the case in other Latin American countries. As Sued-Badillo (1992) had put it: Ã¢â¬Å"Contrary to what occurred in many other regions of America, the Caribbean experience has had far shorter breathing space for the exercise of intellectual libertyÃ¢â¬ (p. 601). Therefore, the very concept of Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ cannot be thought of as an ything but an indication of a simple fact that, those Western Ã¢â¬ËsophisticatesÃ¢â¬â¢ who invented it, simply do not understand the basic laws of biology. The same can be said about the quality of these Ã¢â¬ËexpertsÃ¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬â¢ understanding of what accounts for oneÃ¢â¬â¢s ability to adopt an open-minded outlook on its own identity, in sociological context of this word. Apparently, these people have a particularly hard time, while grasping a simple fact that, in Caribbean countries, there are no objectively existing preconditions for local populations to adopt intellectually advanced perspective onto what constitutes their individuality.Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on The Caribbean Identity specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More The reason for this is simple Ã¢â¬â Caribbean societies are essentially agricultural. And, the mentality of rural dwellers differs rather dramatically from the mentality of ur banites who reside in large megalopolises. Whereas; the foremost psychological traits of an urbanite are his or her perceptional flexibility, respect towards secular and impersonal law, and willingness to adjust its worldview to correspond to highly technological realities of post-industrial living, the foremost psychological traits of a Ã¢â¬Ënatural-born-peasantÃ¢â¬â¢, whose rate of IQ does appear particularly high, are his or her strong sense of tribal belonging, intellectual stiffness and hypertrophied sense of religiosity. As Benet (1963) had noted: Ã¢â¬Å"Urbanism constitutes a separate moral orderÃ¢â¬ (p. 5). What it means is that, given the fact that in Caribbean countries, the majority of citizens never cease being depended on land, while trying to make living, it leaves them with little time to indulge in abstract thinking as to what should they be considering the source of their identity, outside of what their elders tell them. And, as we are well aware from classic al anthropological studies, the representatives of Ã¢â¬ËauthorityÃ¢â¬â¢ in rural areas tend to endow younger people with tribal loyalty towards their particular village/tribe, while acting as if outside world simply did not exist. In his book, LÃ ©vy Bruhl (1928) was able to define the qualitative essence of rural (primitive) perception of surrounding reality with utter precision: Ã¢â¬Å"Identity appears in their (nativesÃ¢â¬â¢) collective representationsÃ¢â¬ ¦ as a moving assemblage or totality of mystic actions and reactions, within which individual does not subjectualize but objectualize itselfÃ¢â¬ (p. 120). Even if people in the Caribbean were capable of adopting some form of collective identity, the very fact that most Caribbean countries are essentially islands, separated by hundreds or even thousands of nautical miles, would prevent them from doing so. What also refutes the soundness of an idea that there can be a unified Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ is the fa ct that Caribbean societies can be the least referred to as ethnically and culturally homogenous. According to Premdas (1996): Ã¢â¬Å"[In Carribean] There are Whites, Blacks, Browns, Yellows, Reds, and an assortment of shades in between.Advertising Looking for essay on ethnicity studies? Let's see if we can help you! Get your first paper with 15% OFF Learn More There are Europeans, Africans, Asian Indians, Indonesian Javanese, Chinese, Aboriginal Indians, and many mixesÃ¢â¬ (p. 2). And, even though that in theory, the multicultural fabric of Caribbean societies should not undermine these societiesÃ¢â¬â¢ inner integrity from within, it does so in reality. The proof to this suggestionÃ¢â¬â¢s validity can be found in KoromÃ¢â¬â¢s (1994) article. According to the author, it is not only that the ShiÃ¢â¬â¢ah of St. James, which he defines as Ã¢â¬Å"one very small Islamic community within the Trinidadian East Indian populationÃ¢â¬ , lead socially withdrawn lives, but they are being often looked upon by other Trinididians as enemies: Ã¢â¬Å"Their (ShiÃ¢â¬â¢ah) view is a minority opinion challenged by virtually every other cultural and ethnic group on the islandÃ¢â¬ (p. 1). The strong animosity, which defines Dominicans and HaitiansÃ¢â¬â¢ attitudes towards each other, is also being quite illustrative, in this respect. This animo sity extrapolated itself in Dominican refusal to provide aid to earthquake-stricken Haiti in 2010. As it was pointed out in MartinezÃ¢â¬â¢s (2003) article, Dominicans think of Haitians as nothing less of inferior beings: Ã¢â¬Å"Many Dominicans believe themselves to be utterly different from and incompatible with their neighbors from across the islandÃ¢â¬ ¦ Haitian immigrants have been victimized and denied basic rightsÃ¢â¬ (p. 82). These two examples alone expose those who theorize on the existence of commonly shared Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ as dreamers, at best. Therefore, we cannot agree with people who, due to the specifics of their political engagement, find it appropriate to speculate on the subject of what defines the formation of oneÃ¢â¬â¢s existential identity, without backing up their opinion by references to scientifically proven facts. It goes without saying of course, that such theoreticians of post-colonial identity as Homi Bhabha, have proven themselve s rather efficient, when it comes to indulging in sophistically sounding but essentially meaningless rhetoric, as to what accounts for the formation of such an identity. In fact, BhabhaÃ¢â¬â¢s theory of Ã¢â¬Ëhybrid identityÃ¢â¬â¢ indeed raises a number of legitimate points. After all, it cannot be denied that the representatives of second and third generations of Jamaican immigrants do act in rather Ã¢â¬ËambivalentÃ¢â¬â¢ manner, while ridiculing the colonial past of European countries where they came to live. Nevertheless, what advocates of Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ do not seem to understand is the fact that oneÃ¢â¬â¢s existential distinctiveness cannot be referred to as something Ã¢â¬ËconstructedÃ¢â¬â¢ but rather Ã¢â¬ËinbornÃ¢â¬â¢. The irony lays in the fact that, while theorizing on the essence of Ã¢â¬Ëhybrid identityÃ¢â¬â¢, individuals like Bhabha try their best to avoid mentioning the actual source of such an identity Ã¢â¬â the racial hybrid ization of those who are being assumed to posses it, in the first place. And yet, as Park (1931) had rightly noted: Ã¢â¬Å"It is evident that manÃ¢â¬â¢s biological and his cultural interests are not always in harmony, and that social and political organizations are frequently either a compromise or, to speak in sociological terms, an accommodation in the attempt to reconcile themÃ¢â¬ (p. 536). As practice indicates, the extent of just about any empirical researchÃ¢â¬â¢s validity exponentially correlates to the extent of its political disengagement. Therefore, it comes as not a particular surprise that the concept of Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ does not seem to correspond to the objective realities of todayÃ¢â¬â¢s living Ã¢â¬â pure and simple. After all, Soviet anthropologists also used to promote the idea that, due to having been subjected to Communist propaganda for a while, Russians had embraced the identity of Ã¢â¬ËSoviet peopleÃ¢â¬â¢. The sheer fallaciousne ss of such an idea, however, is being clear to just about anyone capable of utilizing his or her sense of rationale. We believe that provided earlier line of argumentation confirms the validity of paperÃ¢â¬â¢s initial thesis. There can be no unified Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢, simply because the existence of such an identity would violate the objective laws of history, biology and sociology. Therefore, the arguments of advocates of Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ cannot even be considered seriously. Apparently, people who believe in otherwise, simply lack intellectual honesty to recognize a simple fact that, just as it is being with animals and plants, the representatives of Homo Sapiens specie continuously evolve. And, it is namely the most intellectually evolved individuals, who are being capable of attaining socially rather than ethnically defined sense of self-identity. Unfortunately, the fact that, for duration of centuries, Caribbeans have been subjected to the proc ess of racial hybridization, while becoming increasingly marginalized, in intellectual context of this word, prevented them from adopting Ã¢â¬Ëtrans-ethnicÃ¢â¬â¢ sense of identity. This is exactly the reason why these peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s perception of self-identity is being essentially plural Ã¢â¬â that is, the representatives of just about every ethno-cultural group in the region consider themselves being absolutely unique. All that Western proponents of Ã¢â¬ËCaribbean identityÃ¢â¬â¢ would have to do, in order to be able to come to terms with this fact, is to take a trip to the region. References Anderson, B.
