  • Boundaries Of Ownership - 3,055 words
    Boundaries Of Ownership BOUNDARIES OF OWNERSHIP Nobody owns this essay. It is important that I make this very clear and that I do so at the earliest possible moment. I must do this because the essay that you are reading is about intellectual property, and that means that this essay must be self-referential. When one writes or speaks or communicates in any way about intellectual property, one is dealing with some of the most basic rules of the very medium in which one is operating. There is no neutral ground here, no possibility of genuine detachment or objectivity. Either I am going to claim the protection of the current laws that apply in the United States and under the World Intellectual P ...

  • Cloning - 1,551 words
    ... hat cloning from an already existing human may effectively work in the near future. In a movie called, The Boys from Brazil, two clones of Hitler are supposedly produced from a cell obtained containing Hitler's genes. This cell was in turn joined with an egg, and an embryo was formed containing solely the genes of Hitler with only the necessary ones from the woman. This science fiction-like experiment was done for many reasons, but it was mostly intended to test the clones' behavior away from one another and to see if any certain kind of attitude can be passed on from one clone to another. The boys in this movie seem to demonstrate this concept through their slight displays of Hitlers pe ...

    ... most important goal is the teaching of collectivism (kollektiv). Students learn that improving society is more important than self well-being which is selfish and not for the good of the whole. "Children are not praised for being different from their classmates; rather, they are told that it is impolite to show off what they know...Games also emphasize the group rather than the individual...the concept of uniformity dominates almost all of their lessons." They begin kindergarten at three or younger and are subjected to strict military-type discipline and collective behaviour. At nap time, which is for one and one half hours, they are forbidden to get up, even to go to the washroom (Trav ...

    ... care about how or why things happen. They now live to stay alive and to reproduce. E. The settings of the story made a considerable difference in making the story almost believable. The setting in Guayaquil, Ecuador was in a poor bankrupt city whose last great happening was the Nature Cruise of the Century, and it didnt ever happen. The other setting would be on the island of Santa Rosalia. This is where the stranded lone survivors in the world exist for the next one million years. An island sprung forth from the ocean by volcanoes erupting and cooling until it formed an island. Animals showed up on the island sometime. There were blue footed boobies, marine iguanas, fish filled ocean, m ...

    ... ilities; the difficulties lie not in the means of production, but in the relations of production, the social and political context in which the technology is deployed. A second, and far less Marxian observation, is that social domination has some biological determinants. Patriarchy is, in part, based on women's physical vulnerability, and their special role in reproduction. While industrialization, contraception and the liberal democratic state may have removed the bulk of patriarchy's weight, genetic technology offers to remove the rest. Similarly, while racism, ageism, heterosexism, and so on may be only 10% biological and 90% social construction, at least the biological factors can be ...

  • Hawthorne - 433 words
    Hawthorne Nathaniel Hawthorne, an American novelist lived from 1804 to 1864. Hawthorne's works are deeply concerned with the ethical problems of sin, punishment, and atonement. He graduated from Bowdoin College in 1825 and returned to his Salem home living in semi-seclusion and writing. Hawthorne's exploration of these themes were related to the sense of guilt he felt about the roles of his ancestors in the 17th-century persecution of Quakers and in the 1692 witchcraft trials of Salem, Massachusetts. Hawthorne's views on women in male dominated roles were portrayed as the weaker sex. Allegory and symbolism are combined in Hawthorne's work to create sarcasm and deep thought to his novels. All ...

  • Is Phyiscian Assisted Suicide Ethical - 689 words
    Is Phyiscian Assisted Suicide Ethical? Physician-Assisted Suicide is Ethical Jack Kevorkian addresses many aspects of physician-assisted suicide. First, he addresses the Hippocratic oath, stating that there is no oath concerning a doctors moral codes. Next, he addresses the slippery slope argument. Kevorkian states that the only way the slippery slope argument will take place, is if everyone is insecure and cannot control their individual actions. Finally, Kevorkian proves that physicians are no longer the mediators of death. By using the Mercitron, a physician would not be responsible for the death of another human being. Through all of these aspects of euthanasia, Kevorkian explores moral ...

  • Morality And Ethics And Computers - 1,645 words
    Morality and Ethics and Computers There are many different sides to the discussion on moral and ethical uses of computers. In many situations, the morality of a particular use of a computer is up to the individual to decide. For this reason, absolute laws about ethical computer usage is almost, but not entirely, impossible to define. The introduction of computers into the workplace has introduced many questions as well: Should employers make sure the workplace is designed to minimize health risks such as back strain and carpal tunnel syndrome for people who work with computers? Can employers prohibit employees from sending personal memos by electronic mail to a friend at the other side of th ...

  • Over Population - 1,463 words
    Over Population One of the more extreme measures taken in an attempt to control population has been China's one-child policy. Population advocate Garet Hardin suggests the rest of the world adopt similar policies. This paper is to show a country's government acting on theories that Hardin is popular for and the ethical and environmental effects that it had on people and the land. Hardin fails to see the ethical problems laid out by governments that suppress peoples thoughts and beliefs. Hardin states that throughout most of history there's been no need for concern about population control. Nature would come along with epidemic diseases and take care of the matter for us. Disease has been the ...

One would think this would make the war easy to win. Unfortunately, ethical problems and lack of planning made it impossible to settle the war in the air, thus forcing the U.S. to invade with ground forces. Westmoreland and the Ground War President Johnson chose General William C. Westmoreland to command the land forces in Vietnam. Westmoreland, a tall, rugged man from South Carolina, was know for his enthusiasm, and for always having good news from the front lines. Westmoreland commanded over 500,000 troops at the peak ...
