Hello,

I'm going to be a second year student at UC Berkeley. This summer I'm taking a sociology course at a local community college so I can knock off another annoying prerequisite.

One of our assignments is to survey a social subgroup with a set of questions the class came up with to gauge sociological behaviour and beliefs.

Would you take this survey? It would help out this temporary sociologist. All results from the social subgroups surveyed (others include airline stewardesses, baseball players, and golf course denizens) will be tallyed by this coming Thursday. I will post the results.

The goal: to find the common threads within a subgroup. I'm sure there are some glaring connections between us airline freaks.

Withour further ado:

It's mostly just the kids whose parents don't pay attention to how they do in school. The ones with good parents, usually do well.

1) no. I'm not religious (no religion, not just christianity) so I have noone to pray to.
2) neutral, bordering on evil
3) the same
4) getting the job done. Customer sattisfaction. The money is a nice extra  Smile
5) females.
6) disagree. Children should support their parents, but not be abligated to take them into their homes.
7) no. I'm not against cloning animals or plants (we have been doing that for centuries).
8) ask a woman  Smile I think it is because marriage is mainly a religious/social statement and with shifting culture it is becoming less of a factor in society.
9) there is no question #9  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
10) disagree.
11) how to wage terrible war, but we already know that. They are no different from other cultures, so why treat them differently?
12) depends on the individual case. Sometimes it may benefit mostly the family, lifting a burden (emotional as well as financial). In other cases it benefits the patient, relieving him/her from suffering. Also, in some cases it may not benefit either of these, but society by releasing hospital resources to less hopeless cases (why keep someone who has no chance at ever recovering to something resembling a normal life alive in a hospital, costing tens of thousands a month, when others are waiting for years to receive treatment because there are no beds and doctors to help them). I know this is controversial...
13) mostly, yes. In some cases where it relieves them of violence at home it may be a good thing
14) yes. They know full well (or should) what they are doing. Maybe giving their guardians the same sentence will help parents raise their kids better...
15) no. But they should not pay for it unless there is a medical necessity (iow, threat to the woman's health or a severe disorder in the foetus if she does carry the child).
16) there is no incentive to do good. Kids who do good get segregated, treated by their peers (and sometimes the school) and society as a whole as weirdos. The Mad Scientist movies are directly linked to this. Government sponsorship of school sports (which creates god-figures out of those who spend all their time on workouts instead of study) does not help either.
17) marrying the wrong person. Incompatible minds. A mandatory waiting period for fiancees of a year or more would prevent a lot of that.
18) likely. Though probably on American interests abroad as those are easier to target.
19) No opinion. People make their own destiny. In the USA is used to be easier than elsewhere, and maybe it still is.

Thanks so far to the 10 replies... Ideally, I would have 20 within the next 24 hours. And I realized that I never filled out my own survey, so here we go.

Question tone and intent is open to your interpretation. Definitions of particular terms are for your discretion.

1) Do you pray? _x_Yes __No
If yes, how often?
__more than once a day
__daily
__weekly
_x_special occasions

In a 1997 survey, most Americans actually claimed to pray... something like 92%. Of those 92%, 90% claimed they prayed daily (something I find hard to believe!)

2) Human beings are basically: _x_Good __Evil

Usually only extreme cynics or Catholics who believe in 'original sin' take the pessimistic view.

3) Moralistically, compared to 20 years ago, America is:
_x_more moral __less moral __the same

This is a big shocker to most people. Most people think America is less moral in their time than in the past because of the notion of nostalgia-- there are always those who glorify and reminisce about the past paling in comparison to the present to the impressionable newer generations. "The grass is always greener on the other side, they always say." While attitudes may seem less moral, the fact is: behaviour shows Americans are more moral. The same 1997 survey showed that drug-use was down, alcohol abuse was down, tax compliance was up, religious activity was up, crime was down despite the increase in population, among other things.

4) What would motivate you to work long hours?
_x_money
_x_personal self-satisfaction
other: ________________________

If I were in a position to work just for the sake of working (meaning I'm financially full), of course it would be only for self-satisfaction. The truth is though, I need money just to survive. Having more money gives you the freedom to do whatever you want (Reasonably).

5) In relationships, who do you think cheats more?
_x_males _x_females

Statistics show that it's about equal.

6) Children should feel obligated to provide in-home care for their parents when they become elderly.
_x_agree __disagree

It would be a sign of utmost disrespect to disregard your parents' disposition when they retire. Now whether they are well-off into retirement or not, one should still feel obligated to take care of them.

7) Do you believe that human beings should be cloned?
__yes _x_no

I do believe, though, that cloning TECHNOLOGY can be used effectively for medicine and other purposes, such as creating organs for organ transplants.

8) Why are more women deciding not to get married?

Women have much more leverage in the bed and in the office these days. More women are simply being more choosy.

10) Boys who grow up in homes without positive male role models should attend all male schools.
_x_agree __disagree

Most males who grow up without positive male role models are at-risk youth in depressed economic and social environments. Studies have shown that most of these males' anger stems from lack of a father figure. Attending all male schools would foster a type of "Big Brothers" community.

11) What can we learn from native americans?
We must immediately try to rectify our wrongdoings... And not neglect the plight of those we hurt to the state of economic and social dearth and dependence that American Indian communities face now.

12) Who do you think mercy killing ("euthanasia", or assisted suicide) benefits more?
_x_patents __patients' family

13) Do you think divorce has a negative effect on children?
_x_yes __no

No brainer. Obviously those who feel most strong about this are those kids who can personally vouch.

14) Should juveniles receive the death penalty
_x_yes __no (in extreme cases, like Columbine)

15) Should the government be able to take away a woman's right to choose abortion?
__yes _x_no

16) Why are kids doing so poorly in school?

Why have there always been ones that do so poorly? Lack of guidance, whether from negligent parents or absence of role models or role groups.

17) What causes the most problems in marriage?

Money squabbles. NO FINANCE, NO ROMANCE.

18) Do you think America will experience a major form of terrorist attack in the near future?
_x_yes __no

This is a no-brainer. Oh-sama can you see? Bin-Laden's early skies. What so proudly, we hail...

19) Do you believe America is still the land of opportunity?
_x_yes __no

The system of capitalism banks on the best... it is an optimistic system which brainwashes us telling us we can do anything. In reality, there are those who live in destitute conditions in America whose opportunities are stifled.

Kind regards,

8) Why are more women deciding not to get married?
They are no longer as financially dependant as once they were, and can therefore afford not to marry. Also, single women are no longer considered "old maids"... it's more socially acceptable.

10) Boys who grow up in homes without positive male role models should attend all male schools.
__agree _X_disagree

11) What can we learn from native americans?

15) Should the government be able to take away a woman's right to choose abortion?
_X_yes __no (I really don't think that killing a child is a right to begin with... If you don't want to go through with a preganancy and labor, don't concieve - that's when you make the choice.)

BTW: I have just browsed through the response a bit -mainly SFOintern's response. I would categorize myself as extreme cynic - I was entirely serious about believing that mankind is fundamentally evil  Acting devilish

It is our natural instinct to get ahead, it's survival of the fittest.

Anyone who thinks that people are not evil, is living in a fantasy.

Sure, it would be nice if everyone loved eachother and there was no hate, greed, jealousy,.....but face it, everyone has these characteristics to some degree.

People are only good to your face.
