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. ]

How do you explain the fact that morally evil people can be highly educated in terms of ethics and religion? In other words, how do you account for the gap that sometimes occurs between knowledge of ethic and being and ethical person?
Weegy: They've never developed an internally set moral compass.A knowledge of ethics and religion and morals means nothing more than the fact that someone has a knowledge of ethics and religion and morals. [ After all, how many folks go through college, and learn everything they can about a particular subject, but haven't enough brains or common sense to actually apply what they've "learned"? So it is with morals. I feel that we can learn "right" behavior, even if we haven't been raised with enough guidance, but at best it'll always be little better than a second language- imperfectly known, imperfectly practiced. But still it'll be better than no knowledge at all. In the end, though, it is only an internally set moral compass that guides us to practice good or evil. That, and a good set of laws for those folks who won't take the hint. ] (More)

In your own opinion, Is it wrong to kill someone in self – defense?
Weegy: 1) I think that you have to separate the legal and the ethical aspect. Or maybe there could also be a religious aspect. [ There are some legal aspects of self defense, and if the deadly force was applied in a situation without extreme danger, or if the degree of violence was not comparable to the threat, you could have a problem. On the other side, you have to see for yourself how your ethics support this act of yours. Did you use a firearm? Why did you have a firearm in the first place? Do you still have one? 2) The ethical problem could possibly be tackled with the support of psychological or religious counseling.

\Is it wrong to kill someone in self – defense?
Weegy: Try to think of it this way. This mugger tried to rob and kill you. So you killed that person to keep them from killing you. But that's not all you did. Since that person is no longer around, they can't rob, beat or kill anyone else. [ So yes, I think God will understand. Besides if you look at the Old Hebrew text of the Old Testament, the word should have been translated as 'Thou shalt not murder', not 'Thou shalt not kill'. While I agree that it is preferable to subdue someone with non-lethal force, sometimes you don't have a choice. In that case, the person who attempted to use violence against you is at fault because had they not chosen to be violent, you would not have had to defend yourself. ] (More)

Now suppose that you go to your bank and write a check on your account payable to cash for $500. The teller gives you the cash without asking you to indorse the check. After you leave, the teller slips the check into his pocket. Later, the teller delivers it (without an endorsement) to his friend Carol in payment for a gambling debt. Carol takes your check to her bank, indorses it, and deposits the money. Discuss whether Carol is a holder in due course.
Weegy: The scenario you describe wouldn't even happen. Since the teller wouldn't have your check in their drawer at the end of the night when they go to count their drawer, it would come up short. [ I also find it impossible to believe the teller didn't pass the check back to you for ENdorsement. I think you are leaving some parts out of your story here. ] (More)
