Today at the beginning of the class of Social Sciences, Paqui has changed José María and Rodrigo of site. Then we have corrected the homework, the scheme of the Attitudes Towards Colonialism and I have copied the correction in the notebook. Later, Paqui has explained the Social Darwinism and has written in the blackboard a "short" definition of this.
SOCIAL DARWINISM: theory that appeared in the last decades of the 19th century that used Darwin's evolution theory to explain the evolution of societies and individuals and justify the "superiority" of some over others. This meant applying the idea of the survival of the best fitted to the societies of that time and using eugenics to "improve" the population (sterilizing handicapped people, groups of people, groups of people who were considered "not able")
The glossary that we have copied today are:
eugenics - eugenesia
to sterilize - esterilizar
resentment/rancour - resentimiento/rencor
hatred - odio
to bare/stand - soportar
rivalry - rivalidad
enmity - enemistad
To finalize the journal I put one image and one phrase of one example of trade unionists and some socialist:
"The man absurd is that no change never"
