  • Death Penalty - 1,737 words
    Death Penalty In our understandable desire to be fair and to protect the rights of offenders in our criminal justice system, let us never ignore or minimize the rights of their victims. The death penalty is a necessary tool that reaffirms the sanctity of human life while assuring that convicted killers will never again prey upon others. Through the death penalty many families of victims find solace and retribution by seeking to put an end to it all; the sleepless nights, the terrifying nightmares of what their son, daughter, wife, husband, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin or friend went through and the constant reminder of why their loved ones arent with them. In June 1997, a parade of w ...

  • How Does Descartes Try To Extricate Himself From The Sceptical Doubts That He Has Raised Does He Succeed - 2,342 words
    ... llows: "If a conviction is so firm that that it is impossible for us ever to have any reason for doubting what we are convinced of, then there are no further questions for us to ask; we have everything we could reasonably want." Under my interpretation, this is what it is about the cogito that makes it so important for Descartes, so we cannot have any argument with the principle expressed by him in the above passage. But can it help break the circle? When we clearly and distinctly perceive something, Descartes says, fairly I think, that this perception compels our assent, that we cannot but believe it. God's rle in the system, to these commentators, is as a guarantor of our memory regard ...

  • Last Hurrah - 1,149 words
    Last Hurrah Edwin O'Connor's novel The Last Hurrah presents an effective view of the difficult and complex life of the Irish-American community in Boston of the 1950's.

    ... ing the reader's attention to the fact that American society in general cannot support their ideas, views and perceptions on the Black race. In other words, Steinbeck has deliberately stereotyped Crooks as a "stinking nigger" in hopes that the readers will examine their ideas about racism and determine the validity of those ideas. It is a rather cleaver way to use a derogatory term in hopes of demonstrating how despicable the phrase "stinking Nigger" really is. It is used only to humiliate Blacks. Crooks is a proud and aloof man who is more hurt by being segregated than angry. He tells Lennie that all men need someone to talk to. Crooks was born, "right here in California" indicating tha ...
