  • 1984 - 1,513 words
    1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four is a compelling novel, written in the period just after W.W.II. It details the life of one man, Winston Smith, and his struggles with an undoubtedly fascist government. The book is set approximately in the year 1984, in which Winston's society is ruled by a governing force known as The Party. At the head of this government is a fictional figure known as Big Brother, to whom all citizens must love and respect. In this society, privacy and freedom do not exist. People are constantly monitored by telescreens, and subjected to a constant barrage of propaganda. Any devious thought or action is dealt with by cruel and deadly punishment. Winston is a worker in one of the g ...

  • As The Reformation Swept Through Europe, Changing Religious Ideas Affected The - 948 words
    As the Reformation swept through Europe, changing religious ideas affected the political spectrum of Europe as well. The teachings of Jean Calvin took root in France, especially in the southern regions. This clashed with groups of staunch Catholics. Great amounts of people, including many of the nobility, converted to Calvinism, and they were known as Huguenots. These people clashed violently with the loyal Catholic contingency of the population. This religious strife was also heightened by political instability. With the reign of Francois I, the power of the king expanded. This shook the ingrained balance of power between the nobles and the king. Beforehand, the king relied mainly on the no ...

  • Chile Political Parties And Organizations - 1,471 words
    Chile Political Parties And Organizations Taking a look at Chile's government and institutions it gives the idea that the average person is represented. Chilean people have a history of strong political ties and many private associations and organizations. This has been helpful in taking care that many interests and needs are expressed within the government. Perhaps even more helpful is the development of many different political parties, whom, for the most part represent many of these organizations and associations in the government. In order to evaluate these institutions a closer look must be taken at each to understand fully the amount of organization that is in place. In the 1990's Chil ...

  • Corporate Politics And Responsibilities - 1,919 words
    ... left. Bibliography  Corporate Responsibility As we moved into the 1990's companies became aware that social responsibility was essential to their corporate responsibility to make a profit. Companies are now discovering that "high road" practices such as working with unions, and treating the community and environment are often more profitable, and certainly more respectful than old style "low road" practices that companies used to use that often overlook the needs of the unions, community and environment. William Norris, the founder of Control Data Corporation sums it up well when he stated that, "You can't do business in a society that's burning." What he meant was that if your c ...

  • Election 2000 - 1,471 words
    Election 2000 Election 2000 Abortion, gun control, and social security reform are issues that everyone has an opinion on. Including politicians. Despite the pressures to be en vogue and stay in the public favor, these issues require Ralph Nader, Al Gore and George Bush to take a stand. Abortion takes into account moral, as well as social concerns. And, the question of governments power in influencing or dictating policies that affect those concerns. Social security, is a serious aspect of a growing number of elderly persons, as well as young professionals daily realities, and their election decisions.

  • Feminist Backlash: The Unconscious - 1,377 words
    Feminist Backlash: The Unconscious Undermining of Genuine Equality American people come in a variety of shapes and sizes; their thoughts, fears, and convictions differ widely. It is usually necessary for Americans to choose a status in politics and community; but it is obvious that among specific groups and organizations, a persons beliefs and opinions differ dramatically from the next. Feminist groups, specifically in the last twenty years, have announced their view of membership as an elite group of woman who must have the same specific convictions. Moreover, they denounce anyone who does not, as irrational and supporting the continuance of subordination of women. Feminist propaganda is of ...

  • General Agreement On Tariffs And Trade - 2,110 words
    ... a whole new international entity with some of the powers of a government, is viewed with even more suspicion. Before the passage of NAFTA in 1993, opponents warned that corporations would flee to Mexico for the cheaper labor and less restrictive laws. While that does not seem to have happened at the level people feared, many individual examples can be cited (including a 100,000-job transfer by IBM directly from the United States to less expensive labor markets). Do we really want, 10 years from now, to be buying Fords and Cheerios and IBM computers all made in Mexico, or Thailand? (To a large extent, we already are.) If our big corporations all move out of the United States, will America ...

  • Liberal Party Of Canada - 738 words
    Liberal Party Of Canada A liberal, by definition is a person who favours reform, especially in government, economics, and religion, and who prefers democratic or republican forms of government in a constitutional state. This definition generally outlines the definition of the Liberal Party of Canada but as we will see the Liberals are often difficult to define because they occupy the centre of the political spectrum. Part of the reason for the Liberals past success is based on their ability to keep both French and English Canada relatively happy. I. History The Liberal Party was formed around the year 1867. This name was given to the party from the reform groups of Canada East and Canada Wes ...

  • Liberilism Vs Conservatism - 1,445 words
    Liberilism Vs. Conservatism When one thinks of liberals and conservatives it tends to be a comparison of entirely different views concerning every issue. Conservative thinking is regularly associated with the Republican Party while liberal thinking is regularly associated with the Democratic Party. Two such figures that come to mind whose views tend to put them on opposite sides of the political spectrum are presidents Herbert C. Hoover and Harry S. Truman. For example, Hoovers failure to intervene in the private sector of the economy during the infant stages of the Great Depression agrees with the conservative idea of a free market economy. In contrast, Truman continued Roosevelts liberally ...

  • Locke And Rousseau - 972 words
    Locke And Rousseau Although their ideologies sometimes clashed, and they came from two distinctly different epochs in the course of political development, John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseaus fundamental arguments address several similar points. These five main themes which significantly overlap and thus cannot be addressed separately, are the state of nature, the basis for the development of government, the primary intent of government, the state of war, and the ultimate effect of the state on the individual and vice versa. Despite these contradictions in belief, both men proved to be greatly influential in the course of the United States democratic development. In both Lockes and Rousseau ...

  • Marijuana - 1,551 words
    Marijuana Thesis Marijuana is a substance that has become very much a part of American culture. Nearly 65 million Americans have either used it occasionally or regularly. The use of marijuana hit mainstream America about thirty years ago and it has been accepted by a large segment of society ever since (Rosenthal 16). The debate on whether this substance should be legalized or not remains a very hot topic today. Despite government efforts to isolate and eliminate its use, it is clear that the use of marijuana is still very popular. There is an obvious problem concerning marijuana today. Governments on all three levels: local, state, and federal are trying desperately to find an appropriate p ...

    Pierre Elliot Trudeau's Federalism and the French Canadians Published in 1968, Federalism and the French Canadians is an ideological anthology featuring a series of essays written by Pierre Elliot Trudeau during his time spent with the Federal Liberal party of Canada.

  • Pierre Trudeau, Former Prime Minister Of Canada, Was Once Described As A French Canadian Proud Of His Identity And Culture, Y - 1,562 words
    Pierre Trudeau, former Prime Minister of Canada, was once described as "A French Canadian proud of his identity and culture, yet a biting critic of French-Canadian society, determined to destroy its mythology and illusions". He has also been identified as "A staunch, upholder of provincial autonomy holding the justice portfolio in the federal government". Such cumulative appraisal and observation made by past fellow bureaucrat provides high testimonial for the ex-Democratic Socialist. This critique will establish and dispute the prime directives that Trudeau had advocated in his own book written during the years 1965 to 1967. The compilation of political essays featured in his book deal with ...

  • Polarization In The Political System - 1,164 words
    Polarization in the Political System On Tuesday, November 14, 1995, in what has been perceived as the years biggest non-event, the federal government shut down all "non-essential" services due to what was, for all intents and purposes, a game of national "chicken" between the House Speaker and the President. And, at an estimated cost of 200 million dollars a day, this dubious battle of dueling egos did not come cheap (Bradsher, 1995, p.16). Why do politicians find it almost congenitally impossible to cooperate? What is it about politics and power that seem to always put them at odds with good government? Indeed, is an effective, well run government even possible given the current adversarial ...

  • Power Of Tv - 370 words

This power has grown, and grown for years to where it is such an important part of political campaigns, information gathering, and even for the basic entertainment value. As you will see, a few elite people control what we see, and what we do not see. These people have a great deal of influence on American politics due to that ability. Television has a major control on our beliefs, and it creates a place for those running for office to convey their views onto all of the viewer's watching. These sometimes misleading campaign spots are made to persua ...

    Problems Of US Education Today, the way the educational system works in the U.S. concerns a large number of people in this country. "Only 25% of adults have a great deal of confidence in the people running education, according to the General Social Survey, down from 49% in 1974" (Russel 4). A lot of discussions have been held to find the best ways to improve teaching methods. At the same time, people recognize that a very valuable solution to increase the level of education in the United States is to look at some problems that cause difficulties and hamper the enhancement of the quality of education. The first step is to define these problems. As in every country, the U.S. wants to develop i ...

  • Social Security Tax System - 1,055 words
    ... sted in 2034, Americans must invest elsewhere, in order to secure a financial stable retirement. One way to secure a financial stable retirement at a low risk investment is by securing physical property. By investing in physical property, an investor would have physical equity instead of electronic. This physical equity would create a low risk investment, even if the roof caved in on Wall Street, the investor would have something physical to lay claim too. However, a draw back to securing physical property is personal time; the investor either has to hire a property consultant/manager or become one. Another draw back to securing physical property is the fact that property markets are jus ...

These types of people are in the same class as those who believe that voting requires some sort of astounding effort, or cost in precious time. In an effort to increase voter turnout, there are a couple of changes that can be considered for the people stated above. Taken into account that the physical effort to vote is minimal, it theoretically could be made even simpler. The "burden" of registration could be taken out of the hands of the individual voters, and transferred to those of the government via some type of "automatic" registration (just when you thought reg ...
