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!!!

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.

    A good book for building spanish vocabulary.

    0 4/5 John(marchant@acy.digex.net) (Southern NJ, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering a Spanish Vocabulary: A Thematic Approach (Mastering Vocabulary) (Spanish Edition) (Paperback) I find this book to be very good. It offers 5500 words or so for a person to learn which is more than enough to cover general conversation on any theme, explain any thought, and say anything that is not deeply technical. A typical person's vocabulary is between 12,000-15,000 words though many of them are not used. This book is great-it is organized by themes and has more advanced words in gray. I recently got this book and find that it rounds out my vocabulary. I recommend this one and 1,001 Pitfalls in Spanish by Barron's. Both are absolutely essential for native English speakers. In fact, those two books and a lot of reviewing is adequate in my estimation for anyone with very little background in Spanish to rise to a level of fluency achieved by a small percentage of the 'gringos' who try to learn it. I'd give it a '10' except I think it would be neat to have even more vocabulary-perhaps 8000 words to involve more technical and medical terms, etc. They also try to stick to fairly...

    Powerful, but...

    ...capable of producing some fairly alarming editing errors, for one. Things like "To abrigo es distinto..."A second important item of note to potential purchasers is that the book assumes you have THE ENTIRE VERB SYSTEM down cold. Each of the 41 sections of the book has 'standard' and 'advanced' sections of vocabulary. But Word 1 in the standard list could fire off an example that features a sentence that combines conditional and subjunctive imperfect tenses. After all, it's a vocabulary - and not grammar - book. But just make sure you know that going in.Third point - I can't figure out what make a word or expression worthy of 'advanced' vs. 'standard.' I'm just opening up to a random page (p. 338) as I write this review, and I see the words 'apenas,' 'mayor,' and 'menor' in the advanced section, while 'de ninguna manera' sits in the standard. Odd, huh?Despite all these objections, this book is really a good edition to your library. Its triumph is... 3/5 0, May 20, 2002

    0 4/5 aidyl_falcon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Conversaciones creadoras: Mastering Spanish Conversation (English and Spanish Edition) (Paperback) Mastering Spanish Conversation is the subtitle of this book. While it has been a decent accompaniment for my Conversational Spanish class, it doesn't have the ability to help you master spanish conversation. Even though it claims such a feat, you will certainly have to do a lot more work than the examples in this book to achieve goals of fluency.The above explanation is my only problem with this book. Other than that, it provides a vast amount of vocabulary. It also goes over basic grammar, in case you need a reminder. The readings are very helpful and start out very simple to progress to more difficult passages later on. Over all, I am happy with my professor's choice of this text and think that it will help me out a lot when it comes to reading/writing spanish. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2009
