Privilege

According to the theory of Privilege, everybody is born into different circumstances, and those circumstances make certain outcomes in life more likely relative to those born into different circumstances. Circumstances that render a higher likelihood of a fulfilling life are what's labeled 'Privileges.' The Argument: This is a theory, nevertheless, a fair observation. Certain characteristics make certain outcomes more likely. However, many of the characteristics labeled 'Privileges' are conditional and many of them can be earned (if not already inherited). This is an abstract argument and should not be used to justify an assumption about individuals. - Counter Arguments

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
