Where Do You, Aviation Hobbyist, Fit Into Society?

Sun Jul 22, 2001 12:52 pm

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:

__agree _x_disagree (what a weird question)

11) What can we learn from native americans?

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.
I wish I were flying

RE: Where Do You, Aviation Hobbyist, Fit Into Society?

Mon Jul 23, 2001 2:21 am

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,

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.

Mon Jul 23, 2001 7:46 am

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.

The rightwing bias you find in the questions is the result of the collaboration between the unachieving preps who attend the community college where I'm taking this course... =)

Well I'll be darned!
I didn't know this was you Haas (Imkeww)!?!?
Why the change of name?

Congratulations on your internship!  Big thumbs up
To better assist you in my answers;
Euthanasia is something I don't trust at least under our current medical crisis
I am opposed to the euthanasia laws that were proposed in various states because it was money that was the deciding factor. Insurance companies like Kaiser would have too much leverage in deciding whether or not a patient should live. When hospitals turn away patients for not having insurance or asking patients for there insurance cards before the remove a bullet from the victims body, one must be cautious about letting insurance companies have any say on euthanasia.

Divorce as horrible as it may sound, can be good depending on the situation. If one of the parents is abusive or has a substance abuse problem, then divorce could be the best thing in that situation.

America has already faced major terrorist attacks.
The Oklahoma City bombing and the World Trade Center. Terrorism can come from forces within.

Why a lot of women are not getting married?
This may not be by choice. Look at the staggering prison population. More men are feeling comfortable about coming out and admitting to be gay. Men and women are more in competition for the same jobs. Many jobs are moving overseas as well. So many women are finding it more and more difficult to find that 'Knight in shinning armor' that there mommys tell them to find from the time they learn how to read.

Too many people get married for the wrong reasons. People get married for many superficial reasons. Looks, money, prestige, showing off, impress their girlfriends and make their parents proud. Marriage is over-rated period! It just simply does not work for everyone! Most marriages end in divorce and not till death do you part.
Why/ For the reasons I stated above in the other questions.

I hope this helps out Haas!  Smile

Thanks!

Anyhow, yep Larr, it's me.

The change of name is the result of the "retirement" of all imkeww entities due to my planned incorporation (a sole proprietorship) of a business.

How'd you finally find out? =)

Given the caliber of content and intelligent well thought out material, it could have only been Haasan Lunsford who could have written this out. Big grin

Actually you told me about being an intern last time we meet at the SFO gathering. Also your profile has your name in it. What are the odds of someone with the same name in the SFO area, same age group, into airplanes at the same web-site?  Smile

Best of luck with the internship and this study! Again, thanks for the ride to the Daly City BART station.

And use GOVERNMENT DOLLARS to build the new housing!!! Put aside everything else for a while and make America a nice place to live. Oh, and the low-income families or no-income families in the slums deserve and equal chance. Put them on food stamps or something but give them at least a new 1-bedroom apartment. Have the government give them say 3 months after they move in to start paying LOW LOW housing costs, because these people are less fortunate. Why 3 months only free? Because some might take advantage and live on their lazy butts in that situation claiming to make no money. so give 'em a time limit and after that, take 'em to the homeless shelter if they can't find any money. Get the poor people off teh streets.

Have a heart US Government living the high life with your pay raises to yourselves!!! Big grin

Make America the proud nation is was SUPPOSED TO BE.

The standard has been lowered so no one "feels bad" if they fail. Kids are not encouraged to excell because it might make someone else feel bad about themselves if they don't do as well. Outcome based education, where the schools take it upon themselves to enforce a "moral standard" and "tolerance for diversity" upon our children rather than give them the tools to think and decide for themselves.

Money

_x_yes __no Quite possible invasion from China...

19) Do you believe America is still the land of opportunity?
_x_yes __no But most need to get over their sense of entitlement and learn to earn for themselves what they feel they deserve. Too many think they are "owed" good fortune and success.
