  • Life In The Jewish Ghetto - 1,780 words
    Life In The (Jewish) Ghetto Life in the Ghetto It is widely known what went on between the Jews and the Germans during World War II. Millions upon millions of Jews were killed because of Hitler's hatred, Hitler's tyranny, and Hitler's fury. While many people today still cringe at the thought of life in concentration camps, many are not aware of the harsh reality that existed in the Jewish ghettos. The word ghetto is not only the scariest place in America but also a word used to refer to a Jewish community. These ghettos or communities were the holding areas of many, many Jews who were forced to perform slave labor for the Germans during the war instead of going to concentration camps. In Ger ...

  • Losing The War On Drugs - 1,179 words
    ... nity to travel around Western Europe, and among all of the places I visit, I find Amsterdam to be one the most intriguing. Specifically, living in and watching a city function, in which drug use is considered a health problem rather than a criminal issue, will be different than anything I have ever seen. I have always been curious as to the extent of which the drug policy was abused by the people of the Netherlands, in relation to the strictly enforced drug policies of the United States. However, recent studies show that the use of both soft drugs (marijuana, hashish, and mushrooms) and hard drugs (ecstasy, cocaine, and heroine) are significantly lower in the Netherlands per percentage o ...

  • Many Economists Agree That There Is A Significant Imbalance Between The Growth Of Global Economy And The Development Of A Fre - 351 words
    Many economists agree that there is a significant imbalance between the growth of global economy and the development of a free society. One of these economists who agrees with this point is George Soros. Soros bases his dilemma mainly on the Thai crisis that hastened the currency meltdown in Asia. Also the Russian collapse inflicted temporary chaos on the Western financial system, and most recently, the volatility of the worlds stock markets has caused most investors much tremor. George Soros argues that in the last 20 years, the emergence of market fundamentalism, that is the idea that markets need only be regulated by the forces of profit and competition, has distorted the role of capital ...

  • Mark Shaffer - 475 words
    Mark Shaffer James Banks James Banks believes that there should be more multicultural education taught in schools. Education about ethnic diversity treats cultural pluralism within a nation-state by studying different traits from different groups, which determine one group from another. He believes that a major goal of education in a free society is acceptance of cultural pluralism as a national strength and not an obstacle. Individuals of various minority groups may maintain their ethnic identities while sharing a common culture with Americans from many different ethnic backgrounds. (http://ericae.net/edo/ED273539.htm) A suggestion made on how to incorporate more multicultural issues is tha ...

Why should we give for it? For the sake of the trust. Holmes follows this as best hi can, and it leads him to an underground passage. It stops where there is a huge rock covering the passage. With the help of the mate, Holmes pushes it to the side and finds that there is a little space and then there is a wall blocking the rest of the passage. In this area is the body of the dead butler. Holmes figures that the butler had followed this ritual and had gotten help from the sick girl in moving the rock. There must hav ...

  • Nelson Mandela - 1,866 words
    ... Mandela, and frustrated him a great deal; however one needs to look at three other distinct events in his life which led to his becoming more of a nationalist than the average frustrated black African. First, and perhaps the most influential of these three influences is that of a new division that was forming within the African National Congress. The leadership of the ANC had been using methods that had been for the most part ineffective. This old leadership would challenge apartheid by trying to work through the constitution, and petitioning the government that was in place (Mandela 84). A man named Anton Lembede led younger and more energetic members of the ANC, including Mandela (Mand ...

  • Philosophy Nozicks Entiltlement Theory - 1,995 words
    Philosophy - Nozick's Entiltlement Theory According to Nozick there are three sets of rules of justice, defining: 1. how things not previously possessed by anyone may be acquired; 2. how possession may be transferred from one person to another; and 3. what must be done to rectify injustices arising from violations of (1) and (2). A distribution is just if it has arisen in accordance with these three sets of rules. See pp. 151-2. Nozick does not try to specify in detail the rules under the above three headings ('I shall not attempt that task here', p. 153). However, he does give some further information on rules of acquisition; see p. 174ff. He follows John Locke who as Nozick interprets him ...

  • Pornography On The Internet - 1,895 words
    Pornography On The Internet Pornography It started by way of messengers and scribes, evolved through the presentation of newspapers and radio, brought us together with television, and now serves us world-wide by the ever-popular Internet. It is the mass media, and even from the beginning it has contributed greatly in ways that both enlighten and enrich society, and ways that deteriorate and corrupt it. It is not a surprise to learn, then, that the mass media is the most powerful source of information we have, and nothing else in todays world influences public perception quite as heavily. Unfortunately, most of what is broadcast in the news today is something that society as a whole sees as n ...

  • Prohibition: The Legislation Of Morality - 1,189 words
    ... e United States (nc2a.htm) The war gave the prohibition cause new ammunition. Literature depicted brewers and licensed retailers as treacherously stabbing American soldiers in the back. Raw materials and labor were being diverted from the war effort to an industry which debilitated the nation's capacity to defend itself. It was urged that wartime prohibition would stop the waste of grain and molasses and would remove the handicap on worker's effciency. In this atmosphere the Wartime Prohibition Act was passed in 1918. It followed a series of federal laws such as the Wilson Original Packages Act and the Webb-Keyon Act. The Wilson Original Packages Act was passed on August 8, 1890, and pro ...

  • Protection Of The Commercial Use Of Free Speech - 664 words
    Protection Of The Commercial Use Of Free Speech "If there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea morally offensive or disagreeable." It is because I believe these words by Justice Brennan, I stand for the negation of today's resolution, that "When they Conflict, Respect for....... Cultural Sensitivity Ought To Be Valued Above Commercial Use of Free Speech." My value for today's debate is that of Free expression, which I will define as the freedom to express our thoughts, ideas, and beliefs, freely and openly, without restraint. My criteria is the degree to which free speech ...

  • Public Nudity - 621 words
    Public Nudity Recently, people have showed concern about the fact that women are allowed to roam around topless in the streets of Toronto, and there is no question that some people find public nudity offensive. However, whether people should be offended is debatable; their reaction is often closer to confusion or embarrassment. The human body deserves to be shown and respected both for its beauty and its so-called imperfections. In the appropriate places and situations, public nudity can be comfortable, healthy and can ultimately break social barriers, which hinder communication between people. There are appropriate times and places for anyone who would like to roam around nude. Exposing one ...

  • Reconstruction In South - 1,597 words
    Reconstruction In South While reading Eric Foner's book I came to appreciate the difficulties the freed black slaves encountered for example, how the previous slave owning class continued to manipulate the freed slaves. Also, I was impressed at the great sacrifice they made when attempting to become educated. Last of all I was surprised at the severity of persecution and abuse of blacks that was still considered legal after they were freed. When the label of slave was removed from the black American, it was meant to clarify that they were human beings. Human beings eligible to participate in America's society and culture. However, racism denied them the privileges of the American citizen. Al ...

  • Roe Vs Wade - 1,026 words
    Roe Vs Wade Roe Vs Wade, the decision. 1. The requirements of the Constitution. Any analysis of Roe Vs Wade must be accomplished within the language of the Constitution. Under the American Constitution the state is obligated to exercise its powers with extreme deference to the rights of the individual. Certain of these rights are so crucial to the establishment and maintenance of a free society that special amendments, i.e. the Bill of Rights, were added to the Constitution to specifically stay the hand of the state when the exercise of its powers placed it in conflict with the interests of the individual. The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments specifically prohibit the taking of a human life w ...

Its interruption prior to formation would hardly be a homicide.... italics mine. In nature numerous things may be observed over time to take form. Crystals form, clouds form, canyons form and so on. Each of these formations is a consequence of the process that formed them, such as crystallization, condensation, erosion etc. Life also is a function of process. Whatever form it takes is incidental to, and a consequence of, that process. Do not the dead, prior to decay, have just as much form as the living? It is the process that is of the essenc ...

  • Ryan Walsh - 614 words
    Ryan Walsh Hon. U.S. History 2 The Social Impact of Theodore Roosevelt In the post-Gilded Age, America needed a strong President to carry out and embellish upon the social reform and dismantle the corruption left by trusts. Taking over for the late President McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt was the upper-class proponent of the people willing to wage the crusade against big business with a boyish vigor to be admired by the entire world. His campaign for the layperson to "avoid the extremes of swollen fortunes and grinding poverty" is one of Herculean proportions to be remembered for all history. To understand the political beliefs of Teddy Roosevelt, one must understand the man behind the peoples ...

  • Slaves In The South - 1,910 words
    Slaves In The South "Only a minority of the whites owned slaves," "at all times nearly three-fourths of the white families in the South as a whole held no slaves;" "slave ownership in the South was not widespread;" "not more than a quarter of the white heads of families were slave owners, and even in the cotton states the proportion was less than one-third;" "in 1850, only one in three owned any Negroes; on the eve of the Civil War, the ration was one in four;" and slave owners "probably made up less than a third of southern whites." From the US History textbooks in an elementary school to the Civil War journals of a major university, these lines are reprinted and repeated in an attempt to s ...

This renowned leadership may be the only association made by certain countries, while in the United States many see an other significance: Watergate, Whitewater, Kennedy's brutal and mysterious assassination, and today, Clinton's "zippergate" scandal. When the President of the United States takes oath, he gives up a part of his life. His private life becomes the public's life, and they feel the right to know what happens behind the Oval Office.
