His third argument reads, on page 205, as “3. Because human nature is self-centered, people in power will use their positions to seize greater rewards for themselves.” (Henslin 2017) For instance, President Trump, revisiting this briefly, pulling out of the Paris Agreement to promote more followers for the next Presidential election, could be a sort of tactic in increasing his followers. Further to say, not so surprising to see how coal industry workers would follow that. Nor would it surprise me that “Big Oil”, or fossil fuel companies would jump into that bandwagon. Yes, it does give jobs and source of income to those who do work by trade skills without any higher education. With lack of education comes ignorance, the unenlightened troops will follow a leader who spouts promises of great rewards; even if it means their deaths. That seems scarily familiar to the sense of Hitler and his reign; while it doesn’t seem so bad in the moment, the ripple effects of our leaders’ choices have an effect on us down to our interpersonal levels. Your mother doesn’t want you to date a Jew because Hitler prefers blonde hair and blue eyes, so you round up all those Jews for him and eradicate them, eventually because you didn’t realize that was the plan until it was actually happening, so he can begin sourcing for his idea of the “superior race.” Hitler didn’t have blue eyes or blonder hair, he had brown eyes and dark brown hair.

President Trump wants you to work in that coal mine, or oil industry, because you need the work to support your family and all Trump wants to do is “make America great again.” Despite Environmental Sociology being relatively new to the party, there is a broad spectrum here just as there is with social class, with social conflict, and those other fields perspectives within sociology. Many different avenues an observer could branch out into; it’s open and ready for a team to embark on. Citations Henslin (2017), Essentials of Sociology: A Down-To-Earth Approach | Pearson .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
