  • Arguement On The Provision Of Cable Television On College Campuses - 1,580 words
    Arguement On The Provision Of Cable Television On College Campuses There is a Problem with Having Cable Television on College Campuses Eleven oclock on a Tuesday night, walking through the brightly lit halls, many doors wide open in a dormitory complex on the campus of Bowling Green State University, one can see that the only light that emerges from the open doors is the constantly changing illumination coming from television consoles. Passing from door to door, sounds such as sports cheers, gun shots, screams of people being slain, and moans of woman in ecstasy can be heard. Although many students have the time to watch the television, many of them dont. The televisions utter no words of ma ...

    Active Euthenasia - A Kantian Perspective Matchmaker.com: Sign up now for a free trial. Date Smarter! Active Euthenasia - A Kantian Perspective Euthanasia is one of society's more widely, and hotly debated moral issues of our time. More directly, active euthanasia, which by definition, is; "Doing something, such as administering a lethal drug, or using other means that cause a person's death."1 Passive euthanasia, defined as; "Stopping (or not starting) some treatment, which allows a person to die, the person's condition causes his or her death,"2 seems not to be as debated, perhaps not as recognized, as it's counterpart. I have chosen to look more closely at the issue of active euthanasia, ...

ENERGY SECURITY At this point, we can tell OPEC goodbye forever. The national balance of payments deficit is cast by the wayside and your personal energy bills can by cut by at least 50%, and perhaps as much as 90% with biomass from hemp and recycled waste. No more elderly or poor people freezing to death or living in misery in the winter. If introduced to Third World nations, hemp biomass could drastically cut our overseas aid and reasons for war, while raising the quality of life there by quantum leaps.

  • Caoital Punishment - 1,005 words
    Caoital Punishment Throughout the semester, I have studied many social issues in light of philosophy. One of these highly controversial social issues deals with the subject of capital punishment. It is unfortunate, but our society has evolved to the point where capital punishment has become a necessary function of modern society. Simply stated, capital punishment is the execution of criminals, for committing crimes, which are regarded as so heinous, that the only acceptable punishment is permanent removal from the society in which they could not conform. One of the most controversial issues argued when considering capital punishment involves determining whether the execution of our fellow ma ...

  • Ethical Absolutism Vs Ethical Relativism - 829 words
    Ethical Absolutism vs Ethical Relativism W. T. Stace, a philosopher, in contrast to the view of the cultural relativist, "argues that one cannot conclude that all moral actions are relative". He talks about two moral theories, ethical absolutism and ethical relativism, and presents arguements for and against each. He groups ethical absolutists as the right wing, the conservative and the old fashioned, and the ethical relativists as the left wing, the up to date fellows, the revolutionaries. Ethical absolutism is a simple and unwavering theory and that is that, "there is but one eternally true and valid moral code and that it applies with rigid impartiality to all men", and that it is "absolu ...

Tom Rosenstiel, director of the Project for Excellence in Journalism said that, "In 12 hours of coverage, there were only about 10 minutes' worth of actual facts." Stephen Lacy, acting director of Michigan State University's School of Journalism in East Lansing said through the coverage of the Kennedy tragedy, he saw, "a bigger disconnect between the press and the public. It was a bit of overkill, especially on television." He went on to say that "The media have not quite realized that overplaying does not help their credibility, but continues to show examples of t ...

    Gildemesh "Destiny in Gilgamesh and The Iliad" Stories do not need to inform us of things. From Gilgamesh for example, we know that some of the people who lived in the land between the Tigris and Euphates rivers in the second and third milleniums BCE. We know they celabrated a king named Gilgamesh; we know they believed in many gods; we know they were self- -consious of their own cultivation of the natural world; and we know they were literate.

    Gore's Personalailty Has Helped And Hurt The qualities that have enabled the studious vice president to lead from behind the scenes, self-assurance and decisiveness, also can come off as arrogance and inflexiblity. Gore is an intensely studious and driven man who makes dicissions methodically and with little angst, however a person so self assured of his convictions that he strikes his opponents as arrogant, self-righteous, and even close minded. He strives to be fair, examining all sides of an arguement, but once his mind is made up, he has little patience with dissent. His decisions are firm and final, and when he deems it important, Gore is willing to stick his neck out in a way few polit ...

  • Invisible Man By Ellison - 1,029 words
    Invisible Man By Ellison Life on the Strings Dolls. We are surrounded by dolls. G. I. Joe, Barbie, Polly Pocket, and WWF action figures. Prior to our plasticene friends we had paper dolls, marionettes, and delicately featured porcelain dolls. We are strangely fascinated by these cold, lifeless objects that look so much like ourselves. Children clutch them and create elaborate scenes, while adults are content to simply collect, allowing them to sit, motionless on a shelf, staring coolly back at their live counterparts. Which brings us to and interesting point, are people simply dolls for other people to play with or collect? One could make the arguement that we are all Tod Cliftons', doomed t ...

The television, radio, newspaper and magazines are all ready to give us their spin on the top stories of the day. Some try to give us facts, with as little of their input and thoughts as possible, some work only on rumors and inuendoes, while others give us facts but slanted to their way of thinking (Kurtz 1). The media contributes to public opinion and provides understanding of the news. The media entertains us, watches government and social institutions, and gives the public information for debate and discussion about ...
