Fraternity: Belongingness or Violence?

SOME AUTHORITIES say that people join fraternities or sororities for basically the same reasons. Gang membership is oftentimes related to the 5 basic needs that Abraham Maslow theorized: the physiological needs, the needs for safety, the need for love/belongingness, the need for self-esteem, and the need to feel that someone has the potential to reach specific goals (self-actualization). College fraternities are said to be not that different from gangs--members all want the security of being able to identify with a group and find solidarity through the group membership.
             As a result of the pledge of solidarity, they receive the love protection and security of the group, which then allows them an opportunity to perform a higher level and reach their full potential (self-actualization).
             Nonetheless, it is also undeniable that most, if not all, of the disputes among groups in campuses (e.g. gang wars) are fraternity related. This therefore leads us to the question on whether 'belongingness' or 'violence' is the term that best fits fraternities.

Possible Reasons for holding that fraternity is more of belongingness
1. Fraternity provides security.
2. It strengthens brotherhood and friendship.
3. Other government officials, who support each other, are also members of fraternities.
4. It promotes socio-civic activities.
5. It builds one’s confidence and feeling of security.

 

Possible Reasons for holding that fraternity is more of violence
1. It promotes brawl inside school campus.
2. It exposes youth to drug addiction.
3. It promotes conflict of interest.
4. It has become training ground for youth to become activist.
5. It ruins one’s academic performance.

Fraternities (frater; Latin for "brother") and sororities (soror; Latin for "sister") are defined as social organizations of Greek origin for undergraduate students. Most controversy surrounding fraternal organizations are in relation to the acts of initiation whereas concern over abusive practices and sexually improper activities surrounding initiation rights are, by some, deemed immoral.

Fraternity: Belongingness or Violence?

For me, Belongingness. Because it's more Possitive happennings once you entered a Club or Organization it was called fraternity , because you are helping each other. It depends on the student , they will just choose either good or bad. if good it means that they need, physiological needs, the needs for safety, the need for love/belongingness, the need for self-esteem, and the need to feel that someone has the potential to reach specific goals.

T.L.E

For me fraternity is ViOLENCE , because now fraternity is not good to the teenagers like us because they join in the fraternity and they become not so good, they become bad person and they become very arrogant, and sometimes they not follow their parents. Mostly teenagers joining fraternity iresponsible students and they always encountered fight everywhere even if in school.

immoral becauseito ay parang grupong nag aaway. fraternity ay isang tropa na walang iwanan . kailangan mawala na yung taong ganito at hindi para lahat ng tao makapag aral

For me Fraternity is ViOLENCE, because many teenagers like us become arrogant. And joining fraternity is not good because students stop their study and they not follow their parents. Most specially joining fraternity helps teenager to become iresponsible students and daughter/son and joining fraternity is very not good because many teenager are always fighting even if in the school.

Yes, i agree with that! Some

Yes, i agree with that! Some of the students joining the fraternity because they're influences by their friends/ they're curious what is in it. It is not good for us because we will not gain any good things about it rather we will get in trouble.

Angela Buco from Star of Hope (taytay)
Dianne Gadil from LICS (pasig)
Andrei Ferranco from Unida Christian Colleges (cavite)

for me, FRATERNITY IS AN ACT OF VIOLENCE.

Members of fraternities describe this as a 'brotherhood' formed by people who seek love and care. They said that they feel that they are considered as a member of the family. If they reall are considered as a family member, why do they have to suffer from paddles and bruised legs.Why do they need to suffer from such things like that? As an individual, i can't watch such violent acts like that because for me, it shows no humanity.
we must take care of our family and protect them, and not hurt them physically, mentally or socially.
Hurting someone won't help, you can't know if they are true to you or not through violence. so for me, it is indeed a violent act.

Violence or Belongingness
Fraternity is an organization or brotherhood if its bad or not depends on the people handling the group, others may seem to join them for violence but not all equats to that idea.

Belongingness is one reason why others join them or they agree to the misiion vision of a certain fraternity and ofcourse having lots of brother in your fraternity gives you security that whenever you need someone there are people who would willingly help you aside from your friends.

Fraternity is Violence!

Andrei Ferranco from Unida Christian Colleges :)
Fraternity is Violence. You know why? Because its not suitable for the teenagers to join to those kind of group. Can't you see a lot of teenagers put there lives at risks like taking drugs, if you entered or join those kind of group or if your environment is full of drug addicts can you refuse drug also? Ofcourse not! SEE! Like my values teacher told us, that she has a friend in New York, she told us that her friend goes to the public school somewhere in New York were the students are African -American. So when her friend goes to the convinient store with its friend to buy some beers because they are having a party. So when the classmate is about to go out of the convinient store there was a person inside the car shoots the classmate,so do you know the reason why that person is being shot? Its because of a girl. See in that public school, when they go to school they bring guns,drugs and its fulle of Gangs also. SEE? It can put your life at risk too,when you join those nonsense brotherhood. And now,the meaning of Brotherhood for them is different. So that's all I can say.
