The Influence of Green Groups on the Policy of the United States
Abstract: This research examines the relationship between environmental groups
and the policies of the United States. The United States political system has
been historically anthropocen-tric, or human centered. Environmental groups
have been attempting to change this to a biocentric or ecocentric viewpoint,
which includes the rights of animals and the environment. These views are
nature centered instead of human centered. Thi...

Planck v. Indiana
February 12, 1997
In the reviewing the case of Planck v. Indiana, many complicated issues
arise. Included in those, individual rights conflicting with the public good
are among the most difficult. According to Mr and Mrs. Planck's attorney, John
Price, the Planck's religious beliefs prohibit them from accepting professional
medicine practice, as they practice alternative medicine and home school their
children. After a compla...

Policies on Cuba
In Juan Rulfo's novel, Pedro Paramo, the reader follows a dusty road to
a town of death, where the following is said ÓUp and down the hill we went, but
always descending . We had left the hot wind behind and were sinking into pure,
airless heat. The stillness seem to be waiting for someone. ÔIt's hot here Ô I
said ÔYou might say, but this is nothing'. My companion relied. ÔTry to take
it easy. You'll feel it even more when we get to Comala. That town sits on the

How do Primary Source Documents Mirror the Ideals of a Society?
The attitudes and beliefs of a particular time period are reflected in first hand
documents, purposely and inadvertently through the biases and ideals of the authors of the
pieces. The arrogant self-serving attitude of the first colony is reflected in Captain John
Smith’s, “The General History of Virginia.” The Puritans holier-than-thou ideals are
reflected in the essay by William Bradford, “Of Plymouth Plantation.” Fi...

"All I Know Is What I Read In The Papers" - Will Rogers
There have been many criteria over the past few centuries that measured
one's political clout and influence: divine right, property, money, and
acquaintances. In the twentieth century, particularly the past two decades, the
political power to influence others resides in information: the more information
you have and the more you know how to use it, the more potential influence you
People rely on the media for their information, a...

The Need for Congress in the U.S
There is a definite need for Congress in the United States. It serves
many roles such as making laws, implementing national policy and watching over
the other two branches of government. These are just a few of the duties of our
U.S. Congress. Although they are essential to our government, there are
potential problems. People are not always satisfied with the length of time
involved in passing a law as well as the deadlock Congress can experience on...

President Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative: In Relation With the Soviet Union
"For the first time humankind has the power to destroy itself." 1 The
nuclear age has changed the world, for the good and the bad. Though the bad, is
far greater than the good. We sometimes ponder to our selves, "what would happen
if we were forced in to a nuclear war ware their are now winners." The way life
would be after such an incident would change life as we know it drastically. In
the event of a ...

The Effects of Television Violence on Children
What has the world come to these days? It often seems like everywhere
one looks, violence rears its ugly head. We see it in the streets, back alleys,
school, and even at home. The last of these is a major source of violence. In
many peoples' living rooms there sits an outlet for violence that often goes
unnoticed. It is the television, and the children who view it are often pulled
into its realistic world of violence scenes with somet...
- The Modern KKK
The Modern KKK
Although the modern Ku Klux Klan, or KKK, is not the same group that terrorized African - Americans in the late 1800s and early 1900s, they still have the same basic goals and ideas. There are many local and regional KKK groups such as the Oregon Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the New Order Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. The Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is the national and largest organization, but the only one seeking a political agenda. They are the group that claims...
The term socialism is commonly used to refer both to an ideology--a
comprehensive set of beliefs or ideas about the nature of human society and its
future desirable state--and to a state of society based on that ideology.
Socialists have always claimed to stand above all for the values of equality,
social justice, cooperation, progress, and individual freedom and happiness, and
they have generally sought to realize these values by the abolition of the
private-enterprise economy (see C...
- Ecuador And Democracy
Ecuador and Democracy
Briefly, democracy is a matter of degree and quality. Confusion often
arises in discussion about democracy. This stems from the different premises
people have in mind when they use the term. In my opinion, most people fail to
specify their underlying premises, and we often incorporate into our sense of
democracy disparate factors that may or may not relate to it. To avoid such
confusion, we must identify the key ideas central to democracy and clarify
precisely how th...

People Accused of Violent Crimes Should Not Be Allowed To Post Bail
People accused of violent crimes should not be allowed to post bail and
remain out of jail while their trial is pending. There are many reasons to why
I strongly agree with this statement. Many factors are unknown to the public
without conducting some sort of extensive research. Whether it is simply
reading in the paper about pending trials, or as complicated as researching
previous trials. Bail is decided by a ju...
- Jobs Are Not For Everyone
Jobs Are Not For Everyone
In the eighteen years I have been on this planet there are a few important things I have learned. One of the most important things I have learned is that jobs are not for me, at least not at this point in my life. Many different employers have employed me and I have had a taste of what the job world is all about, but I don’t want any part of it. Every job I have had has had people above me who were not always the most intelligent people around. There is nothi...
- Todays Woman Vs. Yesterdays
Today's Woman Vs. Yesterday's
Women of today have come a long way since the periods portrayed in the dramas "Trifles,"
written by Susan Glaspell, and "Doll House," written by Henrik Ibsen. In both dramas, the characters
played by women were portrayed as nothing more than property which should be seen and not heard. This
is typical of society in the late 1800's and early 1900's, which is the time setting in which these dramas take
In the drama "Trifles," the male charact...
