Today in Social Sciences, we have started the class asking Paqui our doubts about the project. Then Paqui has explained us the way of correcting the projects and she has said that if we have doubts we have to go during the break time not in the class.
Then we have continued with the last point which we studied last day.Fernando has interrupted Paqui, to tell her that he saw her ho channel on youtube. Paqui has said that she didn´t have anything on it. And she also has said that she only has time to correct some journals. Gemma has asked to Paqui if she could change the date of the project, but Paqui hassaid she couldn´t. After that Elena has asked for the date of the exam, and Paqui has answered her that we have to decide on the day, but outside and we have to tell her on Wednesday. She has become a little bit angry because we were interrupting her all the time. After five minutes of discussion about the date of the exam we have continued with Luddism. We have checked what we studied last day. Paqui has asking us questions.
Afterwards we have continued with the next point which refers to the “Political Ideologies”. We have copied this scheme on our notebooks.
Paqui has said that the first ideology which we will study was SOCIALISM. She has written the definition on the blackboard.
SOCIALISM: Ideology based on the idea of making the means of production collective (property of society).
We can distinguish two branches : UTOPIAN SOCIALISM and SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM.
Enrique Pérez didn´t understand the definition of socialism very well, so he has asked to Paqui and she explained it to him better.
Paqui has changed Fernando of place, because he was speaking. We have continued studing the propositions. We have to copy this on the notebook:
PROPOSITIONS based on collective property and the idea that human are good by nature and willing to cooperate. All this propositions failed.
Paqui has asked us if we think that we are good people from nature. She has said that people aren't good from nature. This was one of the reasons utopian socialism didn't function.
We have seen some propositions of some people some of them are philosophers.
· ROBERT OWEN: He owned a cotton fabric factory, he worried about his workers and created a model community called New Lanark. He tried to extend his project to the USA, but he failed.
· COUNT OF SAINT SIMON: He considered the kings, nobles and clergy to be useless and parasitical groups. He promoted the abolition of inheritance and he trusted in progress through industrialization.
· CHARLES FOURIER: He created the phalanstéres: communities formed by 1,620 people, where every worker could choose the activity they wanted to do. All the pharantéres failed.
Isabel has said that she couldn´t see, so some people have asked Paqui to make the text bigger with the zoom, but she couldn´t. Fernando couldn´t seeeitherand she has said to him to sit with María. At the end she has been able to make the text bigger with the zoom of the screen .
Paqui has continued explaining us the tree propositions. She has spoken about Warren Buffet, but I couldn´t copy what she said because she was speaking very quickly, so if you want to know something about him, you can search on google.Enrique Manzanares and Roxana have asked some questions about this man.
We have spoken about Paris Hilton and we have said that she is very rich and she doesn’t need to work. Her family is also very rich.
Here you have a link with information about Warren Buffett :
For homework we have to read the information for the Anarchism.
