Reasons to 'support' slavery in America - Punishment & Brutality?

Basically I'd just like some information which could 'support' the view that slavery was a benign institution, the information would have to be about the relationship with the master and also some on punishment and brutality would could be a good thing... This is for an assessment, I'm not in support of slavery! Also, if anyone has average working hours for workers in the North and also how factory workers were punished, that would be great!


The US was formed by a rebellion to man laws and slave trades, AKA tyranny. When we come in our own name and a law unto our selves we are far away from God and bad things happen, this has been going on for thousands of years. Most if not all nations are founded on the pursuit of wealth and ideologically driven treacherous conquests; also it can be said in an act of self-preservation in the pursuit of surreptitiously acquiring false pervasive power over others. Original tribes/peoples of what is now the united states were subdued, subjugated and rendered servitude by the sword the gun and monotheism, or they were killed by acts of genocide and civil war. The likes of Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) and Sir Walter Raleigh (1554-1618) (Raleigh was a soldier, courtier, spy, and explorer to Elizabeth I, and the Spanish and Portuguese in South America all who enslaved, murdered, stole all the gold, and rendered people dependable upon capitalism. Christianity and Catholicism was also introduced, and Heresy is why people wrongly identify religion with adversity leading to delusion, robbery, lies and murder in 1494 which went on for 400 years. On October 12, 1492 (the first day he encountered the native people of the Americas), Columbus wrote in his journal: "They should be good servants .... I, our Lord being pleased, will take hence, at the time of my departure, six natives for your Highnesses." These captives were later paraded through the streets of Barcelona and Seville when Columbus returned to Spain. From his very first contact with native people, Columbus had their domination in mind. For example, on October 14, 1492, Columbus wrote in his journal, "with fifty men they can all be subjugated and made to do what is required of them." These were not mere words: after his second voyage, Columbus sent back a consignment of natives to be sold as slaves. http://www.understandingprejudice.org/na

Should I spend a year in Germany or Spain?

I have the option next year to go to Germany or Spain for a year. It is a year sandwiched between my Undergraduate and my Masters course. I don't know which country to go for, and would like your opinions please! Below are advantageous reasons which can help give your opinion! Germany - Already spent 2 years there and am fluent, but not yet at 'business German' level (the highest level above fluent). Want to do my Masters degree in Germany starting 2014, so need PERFECT German - this year would hopefully do that. My boyfriend is in Germany and we are already doing a year apart while I finish my degree here in the UK, so I would not have to do one more year apart. (he is happy to do so though - as I have his full support). Already know the language so finding accommodation and organising everything would not be as difficult when I first arrive in country. Spain - Just started beginners Spanish - Spanish is needed for my Masters course in Germany, year in Spain would help me reach aquired level, if not fluency. New experience in a new country, bit of travelling and life experience would be gained, my boyfriend would have great holidays for a year. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated, with reasons why :) And I will gladly give 10 points to best answer


Go with Germany. Your career first,you'll have plenty of time,and opportunity for the Spanish,later.

I would go for Germany if i were you!Why?Because you have spent 2 years there,fluent,and you want to do your Masters degree there,so you want to go in Germany.Spanish is required for your Masters course in Germany,i agree that an year in Spain will help you learn the language,but at what cost?You go to a foreign country knowing little about the language they speak,it will be hard!You can learn Spanish even in your country all you need is will and hard work!That is all hope i helped and good luck with your degree in Germany!Tschus!!!

    Barron's Educational Series

    New cover, same content

    I originally learned Spanish years ago with the Foreign Service Institute Basic Course in Spanish, and purchased Barron's previous edition of "Mastering Spanish" a couple of years ago thinking it would be easier to use than the original. What I found was that it was a copy of the 1957 original--but the page sizes had been photographically reduced from letter-size to 9" x 7", making the text very small and difficult to read. The previous edition of Barron's Mastering Spanish on Amazon had numerous reviews, many of which pointed out usability problems: small, indistinct text; too-fast and sometimes indistinct speech on the audio; an intrusive and not useful phonetic alphabet which dominated and sometimes replaced the normal Spanish; and a preponderance of political/military situations and vocabulary inappropriate for most users. By comparing Barron's with the FSI original, I found that Barron's is nothing more than a photocopy of the old original; the audio is also a copy.My... 2/5 Randy "randy310" (Russellville, AR. United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish, Level One with Audio CDs (Mastering Languages Series) (Audio CD) As others have said this course is only for those who are serious about learning spanish and are not afraid of working their asses off to do it. There is no silver bullet. Learning a foreign language is tough and not for lightweight learners. This is the heavyweight division folks. No you will not master this while doing other activities. When you were in college did you expect to learn calculus, physics, or other heavy duty courses while driving to the bar? I think not! You are going to have to use the book with the cd's in a quiet place without distractions every day. This course is going to drill you like being in boot camp in the Marine Corps. There are a variety of different types of drills that will drill this material deep into your DNA and when you master it and the next three levels after it you will be able to handle yourself in all but the most technical of situations.

    Hard work produces results...

    I have an older edition with 12 audio tapes. As pointed out elsewhere, the "textbook" is a reduced version of the original, and is clogged by the most annoying amount of transliterations. I find the drills really valuable, and feel like I am actually SPEAKING Spanish instead of reading it. I feel it is well worth the price, assuming you have the perserverance (sp?) to stick with it, and it does require disipline. If you did the three courses through to the bitter end while drilling the vocabulary separately, you would know a ton of Spanish.From a learning perspective, the most difficult thing about tapes (and maybe even the CDs, although I have no direct experience and Barron's was not much help when I inquired) is their lack of usable indexing. If, say, each tape is gone over from start to finish 4 times, there are yet sections which require many more repititions. To do this on a "walkman" tape player is difficult at best. Here is where the... 3/5 0, April 23, 2003

    An excellent teach yourself course

    Barron's Mastering Spanish is terrific! I've studied MANY foreign languages and used a variety of audio tapes to help with my studies. The Barron's series is the best one I've ever encountered. It is true, however, that the course is long and in depth. You will have to devote a lot of time if you want to finish the course. (I've only gotten through the Level 1 course, and it's taken me 2 1/2 months.) I used them in my car, which is the perfect place to listen to them. They require quite a bit of concentration. This series would have rated a solid 5 stars if it weren't for the accompanying book. For some reason, the book presents all of the Spanish in both PHONETIC representation, as well standard Spanish spelling. The phonetics, which are given enormous precedence over the Spanish spellings, are not only useless, they're annoying and distracting! To add insult to injury, the dictionary appendix at the end of the book isn't even in Spanish alphabetical order. It... 4/5 G. Karas (Pasadena, California) - See all my reviews, November 26, 1999

    0 5/5 Katharine Maus (Earlysville, VA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Barron's Mastering Spanish : Hear It, Speak It, Write It, Read It (Foreign Service Institute) (English and Spanish Edition) (Audio Cassette) I'm using the two Barron's tape sets along with the video series, Destinos, to teach myself Spanish. Destinos presents a much wider range of vocabulary and situations, but since (if you're using it on your own) you don't speak back to it, a lot of your learning is passive. The Barron's set gets you into a more active mode. The dialogues can be quite sexist--lots of comments about sexy brunettes, fat girls with glasses, etc.-- and you almost never hear a female speaker. Still, they and the drills are effective and well-designed from a language-learning point of view. The guys on the tapes speak at a realistic pace, not in the exaggerated, artificially slow language typical of beginning language courses--and the drills force you to respond quickly, too. The accompanying book is not terribly informative; for grammar issues I've relied on my knowledge of French and Latin. This probably isn't the best choice for a rank beginner, but if you already know another romance language, or if...

This review is from: Mastering Spanish Vocabulary with Audio MP3: A Thematic Approach (Barron's Foreign Language Guides) (Paperback) i love how barron's presents their vocab thematically. i also love that this book comes with an audio mp3 disc and includes sentences that enable you to learn the words in useful contexts.because i don't think enough info is provided regarding the mp3s, i'll tell you about them. the mp3s simply state the spanish words/phrases/example sentences in the order that they appear in the book. the english counterparts aren't stated. so basically the mp3s are useful as a pronunciation guide, to improve listening comprehension, and for review. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 22, 2012

    Red ink is a problem, otherwise great

    I purchased this as an aid for a Spanish conversation class I'm taking and am very pleased with its general layout, grouping terms by category. I was also pleased to see it has an index, so that if you are not sure what name they would give the topic you want, but know one term that belongs in it, you can look up the term and find the page(s) with more on-topic vocabulary.The vocabulary CD that came with the book nicely provides native pronunciation of the vocabulary, grouped by topic as in the book. (I haven't checked to see how complete it is, but it seems to track the book with both terms and examples.) Note that the CD does not provide English translation, however, and so cannot be used for self-testing of active recollection of terminology, but it will adequately reinforce the passive recognition of it. (A big plus is that it does not have the ubiquitous beep, which is so annoying in the CD accompanying Barron's 501 Spanish Verbs!)That being said, I... 4/5 Pen name - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish Vocabulary with Audio MP3: A Thematic Approach (Barron's Foreign Language Guides) (Paperback) I purchased this as an aid for a Spanish conversation class I'm taking and am very pleased with its general layout, grouping terms by category.

    I've had dogs all my life and for the first time I have one that's dominant aggressive especially on the leash, so I bought this DVD. I knew I was on the right track by trying to be the assertive pack leader because the dog is improving, but this video honed my skills. I simply needed to believe in myself more, own the situation, and make a few small changes in my behavior. I was "being" calm but now I also think calm, I own the moment with my confidence, and I use body language instead of voice command. These small changes are making an immediate difference.I just happen to be caring for a friend's dog this week so the bit on walking more than one dog was very helpful. Again, its all about confidence and being the pack leader.If your dog is scared of loud noises like fireworks, there's a bonus section about it that makes it worth buying the DVD.
