Question and answer
2. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?
In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. [ The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and
conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state. The end result of their successful takeover was the murder of thirty million humans in the Soviet Union alone. Many more elsewhere. ]

User: 2. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?

Weegy: A strong sense of national identity can unite people by making a group of individuals feel like part of a cohesive whole. [ For example, after the terrorists attacks on 9/11, this country experienced the strongest sense of national identity I have personally ever witnessed. Every car had a flag attached to the antenna, every shop had a collection jar to help fellow Americans, and so on. A strong sense of national identity helped American heal from our wounds. We were all proud to be Americans. However, all of this good feeling had a downside. People who were NOT Americans, especially Arabs, were immediately suspect, an "Us-versus-Them" mentality quickly set in. Mosques were vandalized, threats were made, and a sense of foreboding and prejudice against anyone who looks to be Middle Eastern continues to this day. ]

Should we try to keep people alive at all cost, no matter what their physical or mental condition?
Weegy: Ethical dilemmas about end-of-life care are not uncommon in the Intensive Care Unit, so I’m told. [ For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that upon arrival to the ICU, the medical team establishes (and carefully documents) the patient’s “code status.” That is, whether they are full code (they want all measures taken to preserve their life), DNR (do not resuscitate with CPR), or DNI (do not intubate using a ventilator to assist breathing). If the patient can communicate and is deemed to have decision making capacity, they inform the ICU team of their code status. If not, the patient’s health care proxy tells us what the patient would have wanted. ] User: Should we try to keep people alive at all cost, no matter what their physical or mental condition? (More)

Weegy: A written promise between two parties is a promissory note. In order for an instrument to be negotiable, it has to meet the following requirements: 1. It must be in writing. 2. It must be signed by the maker or the drawer. 3. [ It must be an unconditional promise or order to pay. 4. It must state a fixed amount of money. 5. It must be payable on demand or at a definite time. 6. It must be payable to order or to bearer, unless it is a check. (Miller & Hollowell, 2011) An analysis of the note shows that it meets most of the requirements. The note is obviously in written format and has been prepared for a signature by the maker. There is a promise to pay the fixed amount of $20,000 and is made payable to Bob’s Auto Emporium. However, the promissory note, as it is stated above, does not meet the UCC requirements because it does not include a statement as to whether it is payable on demand or at a definite time. ] (More)
