Dominant group/Bad group laboratory
Bad group hypothesis: dominant group is the group that engages in discrimination, abuse, punishment, and additional criminal activity against other groups. It often has an unfair advantage and uses it to express monopolistic practices.
Cultures[edit | edit source]
The characteristics of a particular society or nation, a people's way of life, passed from one generation to the next, and likely with a language and geographical location on Earth is usually considered a culture.
In some instances, these characteristics may come from a dominant group rather than a people themselves.
Dominance may take the form of advantaging a few or a couple while diminishing life's joy for others, such as through fear of harm or death, or worse harm or death.
It may not be about scarce resources.
Ethnicity[edit | edit source]
Dominant group is a term at the semantic level of entity regarding generalness. Within the subject area of ethnicity, a dominant group is an ethnic entity like a sociologist, psychologist, or the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies.
From the perspective of ethnicity, any dominant group is often portrayed as the bad group that engages in discrimination, abuse, punishment, and additional criminal activity against other demographic groups.
A dominant group often has an unfair advantage such as numbers, military power, and assets or money, which it uses to express monopolistic practices.
Even in regions where principles of egalitarianism, fairness, and equity exist, there is often a group that seeks to exploit and control other groups and individuals to better only its own situation. In short, any dominant group is often portrayed as a group that does not believe that all groups are in it together.
In each field of use[edit | edit source]
Part of the proposed activity is to determine how dominant group advances knowledge and understanding within each field which may be considered its own field or across all these different fields.
Dominant group is already being used as a term to advance knowledge and understanding across a great many fields.
In theory, dominant group in any field may have at least two uses: (1) a group of field-based entities, sources, or objects, or (2) a dominant group in some way associated with that field.
In practice, depending upon the scientist's intent, dominant group may be the bad group that engages in monopolistic practices, or socially negative behavior such as discrimination, abuse, punishment, and additional possible criminal activity against other demographic groups.
It can also serve as an empirical identifier in observations. At one extreme, it is 100 % of the effect or phenomenon under study. At the other, it is a minority group effect that perhaps has some natural or artificial unfair advantage. In a society a dominant group often has an unfair advantage such as numbers, military power, or assets and money. Here's an example of how searching and using the power of the internet can bring about remarkable discoveries.
In an article that appeared in the American Scientist (May-June 2012) issue entitled "Herschel and the Puzzle of Infra-red", "Jack White mentions that it is not known who coined the term "infrared."" "A Google Books search for "infra-red" finds two articles published in April 1874, both of which use the term in the context of Edmond Bacquerel's treatise on light." There is an 1867 work using the French infra-rouge and one in English near the same time using "infra-red", "having translated it from the French."
The author responds that "ultra red" and "infra-red" appear in a paper from 1873, researched in 1960 "in the dark ages before the Internet. Rosenberg's find is a reminder of the Internet's amazing, growing power to search original works in different languages."
Lectures[edit | edit source]
Subpages of dominant group are not allowed to be lectures, but a category for lectures has been created. A lecture about dominant group the two-word scientific/technical term may help focus any possible or pending NSF proposal and delineate methods to evaluate hypotheses. The lecture would be a part of the course elements of terminology.
Dominant species occurs about 2 1/2 times more often than dominant group suggesting it as another possible lecture/article topic.
Regions is another likely lecture/article topic applicable to dominant group.
The field of dominant group appears to be regions, or the science of regions. Within a region in any science, including the social sciences, there may be a dominant group. Each region is defined by its limits. These limits in turn may allow for a dominant group. Change the limits (characteristics) for any region and the dominant group may go extinct. If a regional genome in biology lacks the potency to take advantage of any change in regional characteristics, there will be no dominant biological group.
Bad groups appears to be one of the characteristics attached to dominant groups. The members of the bad group engage in socially negative behavior such as discrimination, abuse, punishment, and additional possible criminal activity against other demographic groups, including monopolistic practices. These bad groups always have an unfair advantage such as numbers, military power, or assets and money, financial and political power. Even worse these groups seem to have lost their sense of humanity and definitely do not believe that we are all in this together.
Hypotheses[edit | edit source]
- Dominant group for culture may be only the bad group.
