Preventing Terrorism

On September 11, 2001, thousands of people in the twin towers, one hundred and ninety people in the pentagon, and all of the passengers in planes of flight numbers 11, 77, 93, and 175 were killed when terrorists led by Osama bin Laden, attacked America with commercial jets. As a result, there has been talk about war in the future and what results a war can bring. A war means that people might die and that other sacrifices may have to be made. Is it worth the trouble I am convinced that the US should go to war if necessary in order to try to prevent terrorists attacks from happening again any time future.
It is clear through the history of terrorism that if the US does not try to stop this terrorism right now, other anti-US organizations will think that the US will not react and perpetuate more attacks. If the terrorists are punished for their actions this time, then it will set an example to the other groups. This will discourage the other groups from trying to attack the US in a way, because they will know the severe consequences of their

Darwinism Into Social Darwinism

Darwinism Into Social Darwinism

Topic: The Transition of Darwinism into Social Darwinism
The Evolution of Darwinism
Change is inevitable. Throughout the evolution of mankind, many ideas and theories arise, which undergo various changes. Often, ideas, which are very different, come from the same source, or idea. One example of these transformations can be exemplified through Darwinism and Social Darwinism. Darwinism is obviously the name given to anything pertaining to Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution by natural selection. ?Darwinian theory tells us how a certain amount of diversity in life forms can develop one we have various types of complex living organisms already in existence.? Darwinism presents a very scientific outlook on evolution and explains the ??creative force that produced complex plants and animals from single-cell predecessors over long stretches of geological time is essentially the same as the mechanism that produces variations in flowers, insects, and domestic animals before our very eyes.?1 Darwinism offered a very technical version of evolution, which was an alternative or an addition to many of the Bibles, creation story in Genesis 1,2. However, Darwin?s ideas did not go unchallenged, and eventually others expressed their ideas on evolution. One of these individuals was a sociologist and political writer named

Presidential Pardons

Presidential Pardons

PRESIDENTIAL PARDONS
The President of the United States has many powers, of them the power to pardon is perhaps one of the most controversial powers he posses. Throughout history the pardon has played an important part in political and perhaps financial support for Presidents. Previously Presidents have been accused of abusing the pardon. Although extremely controversial at times, the presidential pardon is an important part of U.S. government.
The U.S. constitution gives the President of the United States the power to grant pardons under Article II Section 2, and is stated as such. The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment. This is extended into 4 main types of pardons. Absolute pardon, a pardon that releases the wrongdoer from punishment and

Introduction
Defence expenditure can be termed as the need of this century by any country. Be it Pakistan or any other nation, they have to spend on defence in order to keep their national integrity alive. We all know the fate of countries that have suffered from the hands of strong military regime. The cold war, the present situation of Afghanistan and Iraq, all lead us to believe that enhanced and improved defence is the guarantee of a nation?s survival.

Why Pakistan needs to make defence expenditure
Since getting independence in 1947, Pakistan has steadily increased its defence expenditure. Defence expenditure has been one of the biggest expenses of any Pakistan government. The main reason of considerably increase in the defence expenditure has been Pakistan?s unhealthy relations with its nuclear neighbour, India. The major reason for escalation in the defence budget has been the perceived security threat against each other. The two countries of the subcontinent are like two people drowning in a pool, both weighed down by the heavy boots of defence expenditure. For each of the three fiscal years from 1996 to 1999, Pakistan?s defence expenditure as percentage of total expenditure stood at a huge 26%. Pakistan?s defence expenditure had

Jeffersonian Republicans

Jeffersonian Republicans

With respect to the federal Constitution, the Jeffersonian Republicans are usually characterized as strict followers of the Constitution and opposed the broad constructionist of Federalist presidents such as George Washington and John Adams. In the time frame of 1801-1817, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, the Republican presidents of the time demonstrated the differences of the Republican Party in several aspects involving the interpretation of the Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson and his Republican followers envisioned a society in vivid contrast to that of the Federalists. They dreamed of a nation of independent farmers living under a central government that exercised a minimum of control over their lives and served merely to protect the individual liberties granted by the Constitution. Jefferson, in his dialog with Presbyterian minister Samuel Miller, demonstrated that the government will only be ruled by the Constitution, and not even God would have a say. (Document B) That vision proved to be a mirage, and Jefferson was to preside over a nation that was growing more industrial and urban, which seemed to need an ever-stronger hand at the presidential ?tiller.?

Jefferson, like Washington, was no ?War Hawk.? In order to prevent the cry for war, he established the Embargo Act, which forbade

Political Campaigns

Political Campaigns

In reviewing the last political debets (Bush vs Gore), in each meeting there would be over 5 questions concerning the economy in these political campaigns. How are these fundings used, how much money is actually spend on these “political issues” that not only wealthy indivuals doante but that tax payers pay for. One of the things that was at stake in this presidential election was whether the policies of different candidates will worsen economic inequality and further polarize our country along racial and class lines. (Collins)
For one thing between the two major parties there were pretty clear differences in terms of tax policies. A Bush tax plan, including a repeal of the estate tax, would concentrate wealth in fewer hands. A Gore tax plan, including the establishment of Universal

Culture

Culture

Through out history, colonialism has been around in one form or another. From the time of the early civilizations to the present, colonialism has existed. As given in lecture, colonialism is a geographic expansion of the world economy, bringing local places into it. In a sense this definition is too broad and needs to be adjusted to include the spread of cultures and ideas. With this addition a more rounded understanding can come from the definition.
During and after World War I (1914-1918), resistance movements increased around the world. Many colonial people could try all they wanted, but ?civilization? was impossible to achieve or meant they would loss their cultural traditions. But World War II (1931-1945) sped up the de-colonization process by weakening many European powers and Japan. The Cold War and the Suez Crisis (1956) seemed to mark the end of (imperial) colonialism.
Post-colonialism brought about cultural hybridity. This is a key factor in globalization. In 1870 Algeria became an organized part of France. Over the next ten years, France would send thousands of settlers to Algeria and displaced Algerians with high taxes, forced labor, and land seizures. A minority of

Politics Of Recognition

Politics Of Recognition

(Social and Moral Perspectives on Contemporary Issues)
?The Politics of Recognition?

When discussing the topic of recognition one must first define their fundamentals and defining characteristics. Charles Taylor says that ?Our identity is partly shaped by recognition or its absence, often by the misrecognition of others, and so a person or group of people can suffer real damage, real distortion, if the people or society around them mirror back to them a confining or demeaning or contemptible picture of themselves.? In summarizing Charles Taylor?s ?The Politics of Recognition? we must break it down into little pieces and examine not only his main points but the thread that holds it together. There are four main points that Taylor focuses on in the politics of recognition and they are; Dignity, Recognition/Misrecognition, monologic/dialogic, and authenticity.
Recognition/misrecognition and dignity are topics that have been discussed many times over according to Taylor. It has been linked with identity where its latter term designates something like a person?s understanding of who they are. ?It can inflict harm; can be a form of oppression, imprisoning someone in a false, distorted, and reduced mode of being.? People have internalized their own inferiority in which doing so has caused them to
