Ethipia is one of the world?s poorest countries. Even in Africa a continent for its poverty, Ethiopia stand out. Its per capita income in the early 1990s was $130, second lowest in Africa next to Mozambique.

The Ethiopian economy features a mixture of state control and private enterprise. The Mengistu regime greatly extended state control over the economy in the mid to late 1970s, but the transitional government that took power in 1991 began loosening many of these controls. Shortly after toppling Mengistu, the EPRDF announced plans to sell most state-run businesses and industries. In the early 1995 the government announced its intention

Amish Culture

Amish Culture

Paper Two- Folk Culture

There are many folk cultures still alive throughout the world, but the one
that seems to be the most vivid of all has to be the Amish folk culture. First we have to
have a clear idea of what a folk culture represents to understand the Amish way of life,
their beliefs and their values. The word folk describes a rural group that still lives the
old-fashioned way, following some simple rules and practices. A group of people that
generally stick together and are less influenced by modern technology than the overall
population. The Amish people fall under all these characteristics. The Amish are a very
conservative Christian faith group. Many of their beliefs are identical to those of
Fundamentalist and other Evangelical churches, including baptism, a literal interpretation
of the Bible, etc. Of course, there is some differences such as their belief in remaining
separate from the rest of the world and their rejection of involvement with the military or
warfare. Each district is self-governing, there is no centralized Amish organization. They
have traditionally avoided attempts to seek adaptation. Recently, some Amish groups
have become active in converting to Christianity. The Ordnung is an oral tradition which
regulates the Amish way of life, specific details of the Ordnung

Public Opinion

Public Opinion

Politics is very important issue depending on how active you are. How people look at politics could be based on how they were raised. Family, religion, gender, and education play an important role in deciding how an individual view politics. Each matter plays a key role in how a person approaches politics and how strong they feel about it to become an important participant.
Family influences a person significantly depending on if they are inactive or active. Most children would be what their parents are, republican or democrat, conservative or liberal. Parents have a great impact on their children to raise them with their views of politics and government. Parents who talk about politics on a day-to-day basis will affect their child greatly than a parent who does not express how they feel. This occurs because government issues will surround the child on a daily basis, which alters their feelings into opinions. Religion plays the key role in politics. Strict religions, such as Catholics and Baptists have different outlooks on politics. They would be more republican because the religions do not believe in abortions. Capital punishment is another example that kills.

Declaration of Independence

The King of Britain has committed many injuries and usurpation?s on the 13
Colonies, for he is a prince-whose character is thus marked by every act which may
define a tyrant. The Declaration of Independence, was written to establish the basis of
the revolution that the colonists were planning, and enacting, it expressed the reasons
for which the colonists claimed as factors for their wants to be independent. The
document was divided into three major parts: the first section contained a statement of
principle that discussed the rights of man and the legitimacy of revolution; the second
presented a long list of grievances that provided the rationale for rebellion; and the
third/last portion of the declaration included the formal announcement of independence.

The 1st Section of the Declaration discussed the rights of man and the legitimacy
of revolution. The Declaration most significantly declared that ?All men are created
equal? and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain rights to enjoy ?life,
liberty, and pursuit of happiness.? Moreover, the Declaration argues that government
must be representative of the people and is limited in power by a recognition of basic
political rights. If when a government violates these people?s natural rights, the people
have the additional right to hereby ?alter or to
