The Rise of Communism in Russia
"Unless we accept the claim that Lenin’s coup d’état gave birth to an
entirely new state, and indeed to a new era in the history of mankind, we must
recognize in today’s Soviet Union the old empire of the Russians -- the only
empire that survived into the mid 1980's" (Luttwak, 1).
In their Communist Manifesto of 1848, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
applied the term communism to a final stage of socialism in which all class
differences would disap...

Invaded By Immigrants
Canada being a relatively new country, as far as the history of the
world goes was built by immigration. Every single resident of North America can
trace his ancestry back to the cradle of life in Europe. Even Native Americans
found their way to the new world over a frozen ice pack, spreading out across
the land, weaving a rich culture and prospering. The Canada that we know today
began only in the last 200 years. Settlers poured in from all over the world,
- One Man, One Vote?
One Man, One Vote?
Joseph Farkas thinks that every vote cast should equal every other vote.
He feels that many people are voting without knowing why they are voting for a
certain person or why they aren't voting for another. He says that a vote cast
by a person with no or very little knowledge in the election should not count as
much as a vote cast by a person who knows alot about the election. The people
who care about who has an important role in the government should have a bigger
say in w...

Should the United States take on more immigrants? Is the United States hurting from immigration problems? These issues have been debated on for generation. "According to the Immigration and Naturalization Service, approximately 300,000 illegal immigrants enter the United States annually" (Cozic 12). This large number of immigrants causes many different emotions. For some Americans, immigration is an adversity. Many Americans past and present have reacted to immigrants with fear...
- The Triple E Senate Of Canada
The Triple E Senate of Canada
Public interest in the Senate is currently stronger than it ever has
been. Nearly everyone agrees that our present Senate is unsatisfactory.
Political parties such as the New Democratic Party want the outright abolition
of the Senate while others such as the Reform Party want to elect it. Since the
Senate has not been considered an effective forum for regional representation-
which was one of the reasons for its creation-many Canadians have wondered wha...

- Marxism And Economic Theory
Marxism and Economic Theory
Human relationships have always been dynamic. Change and
adaptability have gone hand in hand with the passage of time for human
society. Systems have been developed to regulate, direct and control
the resources of this society. The systems are referred to as
governments and the resources as the populace or inhabitants and
forces of production. A government must be dynamic in its nature
reflecting the change in society. At times these systems h...
- Struggles Of The Oppressed Woman
Struggles of the Oppressed Woman
Throughout history, society has constantly oppressed woman, making it harder for
her to achieve what it is that she so desires. In modern day society, a female has to work
twice as hard as a male does to reach the same desired goal. Stemming from our
ancestorís beliefs and morals that women belong in the home, these two compositions,
written by Amy Tan and Lynn Bloom, illustrate these beliefs concerning the roles of the
women in society. ...
- Dual Executive/President
The idea of an elective head of state for the American chief executive,
in its conception, was virtually without precedent. The idea of an American dual
presidency, split between domestic and foreign arenas is itself without
precedent. A dual presidency would suit America well due to the pressures of
the office of President of the United States. As Commander-in-Chief, the
President bears incredible pressures and responsibilities. The President not
only has power in t...

Freedom Through The Press
Tears streamed down a broken face
That stared to the ground where his father lay
At lexington was he dying this day
For a battle lost, and a war begun.
In a young boys hand, A father lifted his head
To look at a son, so confused and afraid
Who understood not, for what his father bled
Why he would fight, What reason for death.
And so as they looked eye to eye
The boys innocent lips formed...
