Ethicsand Global Politics
Author`sViewpoint, Purpose, and Themes
Theauthor’s main viewpoint and the main aim are to criticize the evilact of the employers. They treat human beings without any humanityand fail to value the lives of their workers. Some companies prefermoney at the expense of the human lives (Lu, 69). The owner neglectedto adhere to the human ethics. He never took moral principles withseriousness resulting in significant loss of the human lives. Thediscrimination occurs in this excerpt the employees become awarethat the building was at risk, but the owner fails to allow them toevade the risk. The employees received beating threats, which couldalso extend to loss of jobs in case they left the working site (Lu,69). Discrimination also occurs regarding the salaries they earned atthe end of the month. Some could receive about thirty-eight dollarsmonthly. Description of the cruel death also occurred. A total numberof one thousand, one hundred and twenty-nine people lost their livesand over two thousand five hundred injured. They earn a little amountof money each month, which cannot satisfy their needs. The theme ofjustice is also elaborated when the government fulfills the politicalrole by taking the mandate of arresting the owner of the building bythe name Sohel Rana, the owner of the garment industries as well assome engineers. Anger made other workers in other industries toprotest after the death of hundreds of people and the injuries thatwere witnessed. The issue of compensation is brought forward byglobal retail firms like Loblaw, which clings to the fact of set-offof the victims (Lu, 69).
Evidenceto Proof Author’s Points
Theauthor uses several shreds of evidence to proof his points in thetext. The author claims that he was denied a chance to go for an offby his supervisor. The building had cracked, and the employees knewthat it might collapse. They tried to seek an opportunity to stayaway, but all was in vain (Lu, 69). The employees received beatingthreats, which could also extend to loss of jobs. The author usesprotests by other workers to indicate that people were against theinhuman employers. The author uses the issue of the Europeanretailers to adopt the accord of fire and building safety to drivethe point home. The labor activists within the US are pressurizingthe government to provoke Bangladesh preferential trade. The authoruses this to show that the act was not good at all. The issue ofdiscrimination regarding the wages is brought forward by the MuhammadYunus who is against the minimum wages that the employees areentitled to, and it helps to prove that indeed they werediscriminated (Lu, 69).
Accordingto Lu (69), the role of the political theory by Lea Ypi aims atensuring that the global justice of the individuals is considered.The accomplishment occurs when the dialectical method is installed toenable people to learn from their trials, failures as well as thesuccess of the political struggles. The author uses this to prove tothe public that justice needs to occur against anybody who violatesthe human rights. The political and the moral challenges shouldrefine and revise the interpretations of the principles that underliethe social practices as well as the institutions. All this willensure that functionality, as well as the responsiveness, areimproved. All this are the attempts for the writer of this article todrive the point at home. The activist political theory shouldconsider the moral desirability’s of the principle and thepolitical agency. The combination brings the great political change.Sometimes, the political arguments tend to make an assumption of thenormative relevance of the existing political body. The assumptionmight extend to the formulation of the principles. It all proofs thatthe author`s claims in the text (Lu, 69).
Theevidence is also verified through the ignorance that occurs betweenthe normative principles and the political agencies. During theconstruction of the principles, the structures and the conditionstend to have some critical forces to provide the real basis. Both theideal and the non-ideal approaches are used in this excerpt (Lu, 69).The non-ideal methods develop the principles that take part inguiding the agencies to undergo these empirical contingentcircumstances. This conditions the social and the political agenciesto initiate the constitutive role of formulating the most relevantnormative principles. This way, the author plays a great role toprove his evidence in the text (Lu, 69).
Successin Text Presentation
Accordingto Lu (69), the text is entirely convincing. The various instancespresented by the author from the beginning of his arguments leaves noone with any doubt. The author succeeds in text presentation by firstoutlining the predictable consequences that the employees feel thatmight occur. It builds the basis for the discussion of this excerpt.When the workers realize that the cracks occurred in the building andit might collapse any time, they try their best to inform theemployer who fails to listen to them. The company is only worriedabout his financial status and the huge amount of money that it mightlose when they could fail to work on that particular day. The authorclearly shows the world how the owner of the building threatenedpeople to work on that day. Fear and poverty make people not to leavetheir job resulting many deaths and injuries. It then signifies thecentral theme of this excerpt that is ethics (Lu, 69).
Accordingto Lu (69) failure to consider the ethics that result in many deathsarises the political concern. Many things happen in the process. TheEuropeans retailers adopt an accord of fire and building safety afterthis act. The US labor activists struggle to push the government tocut the trade with Bangladesh preferential trade. All this are takingplace in the respond of the inhuman act that occurred in Bangladeshmaking the author successful in his text presentation. The immediateaction of the government to arrest the owner of the house, theengineers, and the owner of the garment industry signifies that it isnot in support of this, and this is here the government tries tofulfill the political role (Lu, 69). A one Lea Ypi also takes theinitiative to ensure that the global justice of the individuals isconsidered by putting the in practice the role of political theory.The dielectric method is installed to enable people to learn fromtheir trials, failures as well as the success of the politicalstruggles. All these attempts by different nations, institutions, andpeople to provoke this act as well as the appropriate measures thatare put in place just signifies that the author succeeded in his textpresentation (Lu, 69).
Howthe Goal is Achieved
Accordingto (Lu, 69), the text has achieved its goals in some ways. It startedby presenting to the readers the main cause of disagreement in it.The major theme was brought on board, that is ethics. The readers sawhow the owner of the industry lacked the human values. The narrationthen created some feeling upon people and developed some interest tosee what happened next (Lu, 69). The collapse of the building clearlyindicates to the readers of this article that the author was right inhis arguments. Many lives are lost because of the lack of ethicalcharacters of the employer upon his employees. The political issuesthen cheap in when the many death are reported. Many nations turnagainst this. Some appropriate measures are put in place to curb thischallenge. Several people like Lea Ypi comes up with some appropriatemeans to help control this problem and advance on the themes of theauthor. The text has therefore achieved its goal through thisinstances (Lu, 69).
Thearticle is recommended to other readers. It is quite educative, andmany lessons are derived from it. The text cannot be restricted to agiven number of the readers because it touches almost each person attheir places of making a living. However, some of the readers torecommend, just to mention a few from the list include the employees,the employers, the house construction engineers, the lawmakers, thepoliticians and the public as a whole (Lu, 69).
