Think deeply about following questions, choose two out of three in the following to reply, in addition, try to integrate the contents in”Neighborhood matters” article in the reply of two questions you choose to reply, —-this means to use Neighborhood matters content to support your view.
1. What does the author try to say in this paragraph? —-in Pg. 9, left hand section in the 4th paragraph, the sixth line it says: “People are now more likely to see psycho-social well being as dependent on what can be done at the individual level, using cognitive behavioral therapy—one person at a time—or on providing support in early childhood, or on the reassertion of religious or family values. Every problem is seen as needing its own solution—-unrelated to others. People are encouraged to exercise, not to have unprotected sex, to say no to drugs, to try to relax, to sort out their work-life balance, and to give their children ‘quality’ time. The only thing that many of these policies do have in common is that they often seem to be based on the belief that the poor need to be taught to be more sensible. The glaringly obvious fact that these problems have common roots in inequality and relative deprivation disappears from view. ”
2. What is your spontaneous response to view and solve poverty, crime and health issues? What is this article’s (Greater Equality)perspective to view and solve poverty, crime, health issues?
