6) Lipson Essay Contest

Lipson Essay Contest

UC Berkeley Leslie Lipson Spring 2019 Essay Contest

ELIGIBILITY: All registered freshmen and sophomores of any major who have a 3.5 Berkeley GPA.
AWARDS:      Up to five cash prizes of $2000 each.
DEADLINE:        Monday, April 1, 2019, 4:00 p.m. – 210 Sproul Hall

Freshmen and sophomores are challenged to write an essay on one of the following seven topics related to humanistic values.

1.      In 1919, in the aftermath of World War I, W. B. Yeats wrote his celebrated poem “The Second Coming.” The first stanza is as follows:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

What is the relevance of these lines to 2019, 100 years later, both for the United States and the world in general?

2.      Why does racism still persist in society?

3.      Has “red” and “blue” tribalism in the United States now made it difficult, or even impossible, for these tribes to agree on what is reality?       What is the impact of both social media (for example, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and news media expressing a particular point of view (such as Fox News and MSNBC) on the determination of actual facts vs. “alternative” facts?

4.      Does the denial of man-made global climate change create issues of ethical dimension?     If so, what are they?

5. What are the philosophical, social, religious, and/or historical points of difference that have triggered the current so-called “culture wars”? Why have they done so?

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

— Lines from the poem by Emma Lazarus, “The New Colossus,” engraved on a plaque placed inside the pedestal
of the Statue of Liberty in 1903

To what extent does the United States still hold true to the ideal expressed in this poem? Please include in your response a discussion specifically of the immigration issues the nation faces with respect to its southern border with Mexico.

7. Is democracy in general, as a form of government, currently broken on an international basis? Please consider in this context the current rise of authoritarian leaders and the reasons for this phenomenon, and discuss at least two different countries in your answer (for example, France, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Brazil, and Turkey).
