Rankism

Rankism | Dignity for ALL | Scoop.it

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia    

 

"Rankism is "abusive, discriminatory, or exploitative behavior towards people because of their rank in a particular hierarchy". Rank-based abuse underlies many other phenomena such as bullying, racism, sexism, and homophobia. The term "rankism" was coined by physicist, educator, and citizen diplomat Robert W. Fuller."

It's a Wiki! And a great place to go for initial or cursory information on the issue of rankism; after reading one will stand up and say, "DIGNITY FOR ALL!"

Some people get it, some don't. It's not fair...but is it inevitable? Is bullying - between men and women, young and old, higher-ups and lower-down - wired into us?

Oprah asks, “How do you change the world? How do you release an idea into the air, an idea so potent that it alters the way we all behave, rewrites laws, makes us see that imbalance, whether personal or geopolitical, stems from one fundamental cause?” When it comes to social revolutions, I’ve often noticed that when Oprah “asks” people “listen”! Great article, with hyperlinks to other great articles! Have a look and leave a post in the sites interactive comment area if you like!

This site uses a variety of social media outlets (blogs, websites, hyperlinks, video, RSS Feeds, media releases, social networks, etc.) to communicate a plethora of great information which address dignity issues in interesting ways; each one making an argument against rankism and for dignity! The site also shares a wonderful video/soundtrack of the "Dignity Song" (please note: SoundBits begins 50 seconds into video). I highly recommend taking a look!

A must watch! The video sharing social media site, YouTube, is used to share this highly reliable “TED Talk.” This 19 minute video will bring you up-to-speed on rankism—just in case you aren’t clear already—and will compel each and every "somebody" to speak up for the “nobody!”

‘In These Times’, a traditional media outlet, is a nonprofit and independent newsmagazine committed to political and economic democracy and opposed to the dominance of transnational corporations and the tyranny of marketplace values over human values. It is dedicated to reporting the news with the highest journalistic standards; to informing and analyzing movements for social, environmental and economic justice; and to providing an accessible forum for debate about the policies that shape our future. The website is a wealth of information which makes a persuasive argument for human justice. Among many other sources on the site, this article addresses, “Our everyday responses to abuses of power within the hierarchies that structure our lives, from the schoolyard to the workplace…”

The “Peace and Collaborative Development Network” social media site takes a positive stance for dignity and social movement towards peace. The site uses Facebook, as well as Twitter, social forums, resource guides, videos, hyperlinks, etc. to make its argument. Highly informative!

Dr. Robert Fuller’s Website: “Dignity for All.” He “shapes the discussion” and, in my opinion, wins the “argument!” NOW is the time to do away with all “ISMS!” Explore, and take a stand!

Here is the Dignity Movement's mission:

 

We believe that rankism, the exploitation or humiliation of those with less power or lower status, is an indefensible affront to human dignity. Treating people with dignity, no matter where they fall on the corporate, social, familial, or political ladder, is the key to overcoming rankism in all its manifestations.
