Hi topical talkers, my standpoint is on how nepotism affects people. As we all know, nepotism is the act of giving unfair treatment to others by showing favoritism towards family and friends. This poses a significant threat to those who are not favored, as it can make them feel sad, uncomfortable, undervalued, unloved, and useless. Consequently, it leads to negative feelings towards those who receive preferential treatment.
Most people claim they engage in nepotism because they want to help out their family or friends, as it may be the only assistance they can provide. However, they tend to forget that by doing so, they are denying other individuals the chance to progress and gain employment opportunities.
Nepotism can also affect people in a positive way. There are instances when a person is highly qualified and has exhausted all possible means to secure a job, but remains unsuccessful. After enduring significant effort, the person may start losing hope, until suddenly a family member or a friend offers them a job based on their qualifications. In such circumstances, nepotism can be seen as a positive factor that helped the individual.
The practice of nepotism is prevalent in businesses, politics, schools, sports, religion, and other fields. In fact, nepotism can even be observed within households when a parent chooses to favor one child over others, which often leads to disputes among siblings. Personally, I believe that people should be treated equally and given fair opportunities. Now, over to you, topical talkers: How do you think nepotism affects people?
