Imposition , from Latin tax, is the action and effect of imposing or imposing . East verb refers to putting a obligation or one load infuse respect or fear, put money on revenue or instruct someone on something.
An imposition, therefore, may be the action that tries to force someone to do something . For someone to be able to impose something on another person , must have greater strength, whether symbolic or physical. For example: "I don't want to travel abroad at the moment, but it's an imposition of my boss", “A journalist should not accept the impositions of the power of the day to inform”, “With his imposition he tried to demoralize me, but he did not succeed”.
The concept of taxation, understood as the pressure exerted by one or several people on another or others to pursue a certain objective, is a phenomenon that takes place in many areas of life, although we are not always aware of it. First, it is important to distinguish between two basic types of taxation, which can be called direct and hint, according to the means used to make it effective and the relationship between the parties involved.
In the first group, it is possible to say that a direct imposition occurs when, for example, a father forces his children to behave in a certain way, to believe in their religion, to respect what he respects, to marry someone he have chosen or with a person of a class and gender in particular or to study a career and follow a certain professional path. The cases just mentioned represent a small percentage of the most resonated, but there are a large number of situations of imposition by parents on their children.
On the other hand, there is the indirect taxation, which receives this name because it is one or more mandates that are transmitted through a culture, from generation to generation, with the help of mass media or entities that are dedicated to gather people around a series of ideals, among other possibilities.
There are endless impositions that seem to mix with oxygen itself, as if they belonged to nature, as if they were unquestionable laws, although in reality they are nothing more than capricious inventions of the human being. To cite an example, the machismo It is an incalculable force, which cunningly mimics society and seeks to convince us that women are weak sex, homosexuality is a disease, men should feel affinity for sports and women should want to be mothers and fulfill the role of Housewives.
An imposition can also be a tribute , an obligation or a burden that is imposed. In this sense, the taxes are impositions established by the State : “I have to comply with the monthly tax or, otherwise, I will have problems with the treasury”, "The impositions are destroying the agricultural industry", "The mayor announced a new tax on real estate owners".
The imposition of hands On the other hand, it is a frequent practice in the field of religion , which allows the action of God reach a person through the hands of an intermediary (such as a priest, a pastor, etc.).
In the Catholic Church , the laying on of hands is used to convey the grace of the Holy Spirit to those who receive certain sacraments. Catholic priests appeal to the laying on of hands to bless, accompanying this action with prayers.
He reiki It is also based on the imposition of hands. Its practitioners affirm that, in this way, they channel the universal vital energy.
