Structural functionalism, or simply functionalism, is a framework for building theory that sees society as a complex system whose parts work together to promote solidarity and stability. This approach looks at society through a macro-level orientation, which is a broad focus on the social structures that shape society as a whole, and believes that society has evolved like organisms.
This approach looks at both social structure and social functions. Functionalism addresses society as a whole in terms of the function of its constituent elements; namely norms, customs, traditions, and institutions.
It is within Americas lack of promoting good and firm social functions that has caused this nation to look at ourselves. It is simply perceived by most American’s that the leadership (a ruling class of people?) elite in Washington D.C. has returned mostly to their original ways — that appeared to be business, family, and God — when suggesting they have returned to their original ways this is meant to say that originally they are opposite of what is described (weak, non-family oriented, and without any religious system).
As such and as many articles will stand affirmative toward — The Decimation of America — seems to have been the prominent order of President Barack Obama and his administration.
No where can this be further proven than by looking at the form and function of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as well as those agencies therein such as: the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), the Justice Department (DOJ), the “who knows” former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE), the U.S. Secret Service, and the Federal Emergency and Management Agency. There are of course ten (10) more we could be named but let’s leave something for our reader’s.
It has always been my contention that when the leadership succumbs to every whim from our social structures there will literally be hell to pay. There are indeed some ideologies that can be traced to their origins; however, write as many of us do as those decisions begin to rear their ugliness this is indeed when we need strong leadership to curtail it.
And please know me from this: We believe that the true to form public opinion of the majority of Americans will suffice on most matters — there are some that do get away and it is only the strong arm tactics of a bent leadership upon the weakness of other’s that most rubbish gets through the complete system.
No one on this planet could be more livid with regard to the current immigration status or lack thereof that exists in our nation today than me! Finding out about some apparent visa status such as an engagement or intent to marry visa is beyond comprehension. In fact, the following is from today’s activities on Capitol Hill.
An overwhelming majority of House lawmakers voted Tuesday to tighten restrictions on individuals entering the U.S. without visas from ally nations — the chamber’s strongest border control move yet after Islamic terrorists killed 130 people in Paris.
Passing the measure may give Republican leaders more space to maneuver on a must-pass government spending bill. Many conservatives want to add provisions to the omnibus that would bar Syrian and Iraqi refugees from entering the U.S. until tighter vetting restrictions are in place.
But GOP leaders hope that Tuesday’s stand-alone visa measure will satiate the Republican appetite for action on the Syrian issue. The bill would stop individuals from traveling to the U.S. from certain countries without a visa if they’ve previously traveled to countries like Iraq or Syria that are known terrorism hotbeds.
