... First Lady. She could not have been more mistaken. As the years passed, 's influence and stature continued to grow. Today, she remains a powerful inspiration to leaders in both the civil rights and women's movements. Eleanor shattered the ceremonial mold in which the role of the First Lady had traditionally been fashioned, and reshaped it around her own skills and her deep commitment to social reform. She gave a voice to people who did not have access to power.

A Different Sort Of Segregatio
... an 18 year old adult and a 21 year old adult; however, since they are viewed by law as equals shouldn't they have the same privileges? Obviously certain laws that regulate activities by age are necessary. Voting, alcohol, and driving should not be available to people of any age because of the amount of responsibility these activities require. However the segregation between younger and older adults is unwarranted. Up until 1984 the legal drinking age was 18, however Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) spurred a campaign to raise the age limit to 21. They succeeded with the passage of the National Minimum Purch ...

Government Intervention Of The Internet
... of the knowledge society. At present, this net is the epitome of the first amendment: free speech. It is a place where people can speak their mind without being reprimanded for what they say, or how they choose to say it. The key to the world-wide success of the Internet is its protection of free speech, not only in America, but not in other countries where free speech is not protected by a constitution.

With over 30 million Internet users in the U.S. alone everything i ...

angry because the food prices had gone up. The middle class had money but
didn't have the influence of the nobles. In the 1700's there was a social
inequality in France. Taxes and laws varied in each part of France which
caused confusion and injustice. Louis XIV and Louis XV both left big debts
when they died, and left France practically bankrupt. The country soon
went into a financial crisis.
Many revolutions happen after rulers begin to lose confidence in
themselves and give in to the demands of others or their rivals. The

morality, religious beliefs, and inflammatory, biased feelings towards certain
laws cannot supersede the concrete social laws. This type of high emotion was
apparent when dealing with the facts in the murder of a Topeka police officer.
In the recent trial Steven Shively was prosecuted for shooting a police officer.
The prosecutor was caught up in the media and emotional hype of this case. She
apparently thought that she could win simply because a police officer was shot
and the public was behind her. It was a case of public revenge where the mind-
