  • Black Boy - 1,447 words
    Black Boy Analytical Text-Based Essay on the End of Racism through "Black Boy" by Richard Wright Around 2000 B.C., Egyptians enslaved Jews in bondage like caged animals because they were targeted as a lesser race and thus chosen for labor. Just 1500 years later, the Jews themselves were the culprits of racism labeling the very association with Samaritans as a deep sin. In 1861 1865, the United States divided brother against brother in one of its bloodiest battles of all time over black slavery. Racism survives not simply as an intangible historic fable but as a real modern problem, also.

  • Callahan Chronicals - 1,216 words
    Callahan Chronicals After reading the Callahan Chronicals I have come to realize that there are many things to be learned in life. This book captured my attention by trying to figure out just what it is that Spider Robinson is trying to pass on to the reader. I have come to the conclusion that the author is trying to portray real life situations with a little twist to keep the reader interested. There is a lesson to be learned from each story. Each visitor that passes through Mike Callahan's bar is teaching the people who are already there a lesson and there is much to be learned. In the Centipede's Dilemma I learned that apperance really dosen't matter. Dink Fogerty led the whole bar to bel ...

  • Confucianism And Its Implications In Modern China - 1,847 words
    Confucianism And It's Implications In Modern China Confucianism is a time enduring philosophy that has stood up to invading clans, war, resentment, enforcement and infringement of new philosophies, and eventually, revival. For almost 80years, up until the late 1970's, Confucianism and its ideas and values have been all but wiped away from China. Though effort was made to remove Confucianism for good from China by the Communist leader Mao Zedong in 1949, the ideas and values were so deeply embedded into peoples mind and the culture that even suppression could not keep it out of the culture and practices. The main factor that has brought Confucianism back into the limelight in China and other ...

  • Decision Making - 1,679 words
    Decision Making Any decision affecting people has ethical ramifications and virtually all important decisions reflect the decision- makers mindfulness and resolution to ethical behavior. This is why it is important to know for yourself how you go about making ethical decisions, or decisions of any kind. Finding out how one goes about making decisions can be a rather hard task as I found out while I was researching my mind to decide exactly how I do go about making the decisions I make. The first thing I decided was that most of the decisions I make in my life are made with much thought about anything that might be affected by the decision. The most important thing, to me, is to make a decisi ...

  • Eight Ways To Be A Better Friend - 569 words
    Eight Ways To Be A Better Friend ~ Eight Ways to be a Better Friend ~ Being a friend isn't just something that we do. It's a skill that we can learn and improve upon. Here, eight ways to be a better friend. Number One: Like yourself The first step in having a good relationship with a friend is to have a good relationship with yourself. When we genuinely like ourselves, we become more attractive to other people. We have more to offer others because we are not constantly focused on our own image and reputation. We become better friends because we don't cling. We are secure enough to spend time with a friend because we want to, not because we need to. And relax--the journey to self-acceptance i ...

    ... a noble privilege which has been sadly prostituted; and what I want to tell you is, that the humblest man in Leeds, who has the coarsest work to do, yet, if his heart be tender, and pure, and true, can be, in the most emphatic sense of the word, 'a gentleman.' We all know that there are those in our midst who object to politeness, or polite phrases, because, as they say, the language is false and unmeaning. And company manners is a scornful term frequently applied to the courteous demeanor, and many polite sentences which are often uttered, and are so very desirable, in well-bred society. In the common compliments of civilized life, there is no falsehood uttered, because there is no inte ...

  • Euthanasia Mercy Killing - 1,039 words
    Euthanasia Mercy Killing Sue Rodriguez has reminded us all of our own mortality and our need to think carefully about the kind of society we want to live and to die in. Sue Rodriguez was known through the media, and her well spoken and eloquent speeches. People painfully in support of what she believed in, watched as her strength was sapped by the devastating disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and we were moved by her clear thought and her bravery as a person facing death. Here was a woman who acted on her beliefs with courage and tenacity and whose grace has enriched us all. It is no defense to point to the fact that a person has requested to be killed: "No person is entitled to conse ...

  • Gender Bashing - 497 words
    Gender Bashing The Mens Right Movement: Male is Not a Four-Letter Word 11/22/00 Jack Kammers article seeks to point out that negative aspects have stemmed from the growing womens liberation movement. This article does a good job bringing to light the anti-male feelings that are sometimes associated with the word feminism. However, it does not really have a concrete basis that supports this authors opinions. Kammers article does share one concept common among some of the other critiques I have read on this man vs. women phenomenon. That is, without a factual base they tend to sound like simple complaints. I feel that articles such as these tend to take attention off of real problems that are ...

  • Integrating Care And Justice: Moral Development - 2,721 words

Everyone makes bad decisions, then tries to make sure that those events do not repeat themselves. This idea is integral to the stage two leap. Part Two: Integration of Care and Justice The major point of this part of the paper is to hypothesize and analyze Kohlberg's stage three and four, along with the transition between the two. From what I have gathered from the assignment, the goal is to reanalyze both the stages, show their adequacies and inadequacies, then integrate the two to form a stronger quasi-stage four. I have discussed the stage three to four "regressi ...

There is no just, justice, only the presence of action and consequence for persons in a consensus regarding their concept of justice.

Those who are effected by the justice that is placed around them and do not agree with it are being treated unfairly. For those people there is no justice. Without total consensus defining justice there is no justice. If there is a justice without conformity it is not just, and therefore is not manifested as just ...

  • Lawrence - 1,095 words
    Lawrence Kohlberg Lawrence Kohlberg conducted research on moral development, using surveys as his major source of assessment. He presented surveys with moral dilemmas and asked his subjects to evaluate the moral conflict. In developing his theory, he made an intensive study using the same survey techniques of the bases on which children and youths of various ages make moral decisions. He found that moral growth also begins early in life and proceeds in stages throughout adulthood and beyond which is until the day we die. Influenced by Piaget's concept of stages, Kohlberg's theory was created based on the idea that stages of moral development build on each other in order of importance and sig ...
