- Equality: A Movement - 1,364 words
Equality: A Movement It was Friday June 27, 1969. New York's crime syndicates are extorting large sums of protection money from gay bars. Any who can, or will, not pay are either persuaded or closed down after a visit from NYCPD's Public Morals Section, who enforce the Mafia's stranglehold on the city's gay bars. The detectives from the Public Morals Section have no reason to believe that tonight's raid on the gay Stonewall Inn will be anything but brief and businesslike. They arrest two bartenders, three drag queens, and a lesbian. The customers are allowed to leave one-by-one. A crowd of these customers quickly gathers outside the Stonewall Inn. Cries of defiance and cheers begin to rise f ...

- Ludwig Von Beethoven - 557 words
Ludwig von Beethoven One of the greatest musical geniuses of all time didnt even know his own birthday. Ludwig von Beethoven was born second in his family, behind Ludwig Maria, his older brother, who died very young. This loss may still have stung their parents. Their pain could have overshadowed the second Ludwigs own early childhood. The brothers shared a name, Ludwig, which probably added to his confusion. A common mistake is the claim that Beethoven was born on December 17, 1770. This is actually the date of his baptism, which suggests that he may have been born on December 16, but the details are unknown. Although his birthday is unknown, we do know that he was born in Bonn, Germany. Mi ...

- Mexican Democracy - 1,252 words
Mexican Democracy Jim Sullivan Mexican Democracy When one thinks of Mexico the first thing that often comes to mind are all of the old Westerns where the bad guys would run to Mexico to escape and good guys were attacked by desperados and also government troops. This stereotype is not too far off from the actual political situation in Mexico. If one were to look at the history of this troubled nation one would find a universal lack of stable government and a tendency towards military run dictatorships. This comes from a turbulent history fraught with foreign influence and puppet governments. The most recent foreign intervention was in the 1850's when the French sent troops over to Mexico in ...

- Nineteen Eightyfour: A Grim Prediction Of The Future - 1,079 words
Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Grim Prediction of the Future Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Grim Prediction of the Future Nineteen Eighty-Four was written between the years of 1945 and 1948. Orwell got the title from switching the last two numbers of the publication date. In Orwells criticism of a perfect society, his book became known as one of the greatest anti-utopian novels of all time. The books message is so powerful that some say it went so far as to prevent the sinister future from realizing itself. Althought the book starts out as the story of a neurotic, paranoid man, it quickly turns into a protest against a quasi-utopian society and a totalitarian government. The book appears to be a satire at ...

- Orientalism - 1,715 words
Orientalism Said describes Orientalism as, "...the generic term that I have been employing to describe the Western approach to the Orient; Orientalism is the discipline by which the Orient was (and is) approached systematically, as a topic of learning, discovery and practice". By this, Said is saying because we treated the East like a school subject, we have learned to treat the East as an inferior. Which has developed into something called Orientalism. The poets, authors and statesmen of the nineteenth-century have made Orientalism every thing that it is. They started out with the intent of learning about a civilization of people that was extremely different from ours. Their intentions were ...

- Pauline Hanson An Opinionative Essay - 326 words
Pauline Hanson - An Opinionative Essay Beginning close to three years ago as a tiny, inconsiderable speck on the political horizon, Pauline Hanson has since seen her influence and attention in Australian politics skyrocket. So much so, in fact, that she is now arguably the most talked about politician in Australia, ahead of even the Prime Minister. She now has her own political party, One Nation, who will contest the upcoming federal election with a feeling of confidence after the party's success in the recent Queensland state election. However dismayed the rest of the political world are about this new threat, no successful plan or strategy has yet been found to curb her ever increasing pop ...

- Power Of Tv - 370 words
Power Of Tv The Power of TV Television as we know it today is one of the most powerful sources that we as citizens use to gather our information. 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.

- Slavery Is The South - 653 words
Slavery is the South Essay #3 Slavery played a dominating and critical role in much of Southern life. In the struggle for control in America, slavery was the Souths stronghold and the hidden motive behind many political actions and economic statistics. By dominating Southern life, slavery also dominated the economic and political aspects of life in the South from 1840 to 1860. By the 1840s and 50s the Southern economy had almost completely become slave and cash crop agriculture based. Without slaves in the south a person was left either landless and penniless or struggling to get by on a small farm. However, even though slaves dominated the southern economy, slaveholders only included about ...

- The Apathy Of Generation X - 1,445 words
The Apathy of Generation X Subject: Political Science Title: The Apathy of Generation X For the past 25 years it has been wondered why the young people of America have shared the same apathetic attitude towards politics as the older generation of Americans. Indeed, the issues concerning young voters are just as important as those concerning older voters. Why the newest voters choose to abstain their right has long been studied. While it has been proven that the vote of young people can make or a break an election, most candidates are reluctant to relate themselves to young people. When that Tuesday in November comes, young people choose not be heard, assuring themselves future neglect by the ...

- The Vietnam War - 607 words
The Vietnam War The Vietnam War The Vietnam War was the most controversial war in American history. Costing more than 47,000 U.S. lives and $140,000,000, the war had momentous impact on the country, politically, economically, and socially. More significantly, the United States failed to achieve its stated war aims, for the first time in history. The goal was to preserve an independent, noncommunist government in South Vietnam, but by the wars end in 1975, all of Vietnam was under the communist rule of Ho Chi Minhs Democratic Republic of Vietnam. The U.S. emerged from the war disgraced: a global superpower had been bested by the nearly third-world nation of North Vietnam. But how? Antiwar sen ...

- We Do Not Xactly Care About The Government - 1,126 words
We Do Not Xactly Care About the Government What is the point of the government? This is a question I often ask myself. I am a member of Generation X, or so I've been labeled since I was born in 1981. I have been labeled as lazy, irresponsible, and apathetic. One of those words applies to me right now, and that is my apathy toward the government. At this time in my life it does not matter what happens in the government, it will continue to run without my input. Perhaps our indifference toward the government is one of the many problems with my generation. There are many reasons why young people do not vote, or get involved in political actions. They range from apathy to just plain not having e ...

Women In India Joseph Borstein November 29, 2000 Gandhi's India Paper #3 The Conflict of Women in 20th Century India Throughout recorded history, women the world over have been held to different standards than men. They have been consistently oppressed in nearly all aspects of life, from political to personal, public to private. In the 20th century, great strides have been taken to end this oppression and level the playing field. In India however, a number of deeply rooted traditions have made this effort particularly difficult, and as a result, women's triumphs over oppression in India are all the more intriguing. To understand the position women found themselves in at the dawn of the 20th ...
