... ideas or themes of materials in which a person does not agree,
portrays a false atmosphere of society. When the Congress feels that people do
not have the ability to form decisions for themselves, this is where the

and ideas that are circulated among the people within a society.(Konvitz 1)"

Ignorrance Is Bliss
... Show with Jay Leno. He has a rather interesting segment where he goes out into the streets of new York to talk to college students, tourists, or whoever else he runs into, and asks them some rather simple trivia questions. Wow! Some of the responses they get to these questions. I would like to find out how many correct responses they get for each of these stupid ones, but I have a feeling it is not that many. If they do get many correct responses, than when they find the stupid people, they really find the stupid people. Many of them seem totally clueless to their own ignorrance. If , than these people must ...
Women In The Police Force

Medicine. The medical world has rapidly moved forward finding cures for many
diseases through animal testing, giving new alternatives and shining a new light

monkeys and dogs have resulted in successful open heart surgeries on people, as
well as organ transplants, and the cardiac pace maker.

What If The World Had Only Two Faces?
... Unlike today, love would have its beginning in the inner person. “Love at first sight” wouldn’t be a proper statement because it’s not the “sight “ that matters. It’s the personality of each individual that forms the bond of love. That would most probably eliminate jealousy in the world and would make today’s world more peaceful. Love can have its good times and its bad. The bad moments in a relationship would cause an increase in frustration. When a couple has an argument, all they would see in the world would be their spouses’ face. That can have a negative impact on people and it may cause them to become ...
Crisis: Generation X
... who all work "McJobs" which is defined by Coupland as: "[a] low-pay,
low-prestige, low-dignity, low-benefit, no-future job in the service
sector" (Generation X, pg.5). They each are misunderstood by their parents
and are seen as underachievers in a society "that has it easy." It is easy
for parents of the "X-ers" to believe this because all they've know is rise.
Rise in population, rise in American business, and rise in overall success.
These days all jobs are taken. The jobs out there are low paying and
demeaning to overqualified applicants. Left only to scrap by, it is not
unusual for an "X-er" to feel " ...

... involved in its enforcement, as well as its victim.”(Stewart 1) Perhaps the most frequent argument for capital punishment is that of deterrence. The prevailing thought is that imposition of the death penalty will act to dissuade other criminals from committing violent acts. Numerous studies have been created attempting to prove this belief; however, “[a]ll the evidence taken together makes it hard to be confident that capital punishment deters more than long prison terms do.”(Cavanagh 4) Going ever farther, Bryan Stevenson, the executive director of the Montgomery based Equal Justice Initiative, has stated that “…pe ...
Child Labor In Pakistan
... ages four to fourteen are being forced, just to make carpets. Many of the men work long hours for little pay, and whenever there is an error, even due to natural disasters, they are blamed and their salary is cut or taken away. This is extremely difficult to support a family. Many fathers sell their children to carpet masters for a sum of money paid over five years. Even though the father is happy with ¼ of the sum because a deal is not worth much in Pakistan especially between rich men and poor men. When the Father receives this money he is in the masters dept and his sun must work until it is paid off.
Violence On TV
... time and time again that aggression and television viewing do go hand in hand. The truth about television violence and children has been shown. Some are trying to fight this problem. Others are ignoring it and hoping it will go away. Still others don't even seem to care. However, the facts are undeniable. The studies have been carried out and all the results point to one conclusion: Television violence causes children to be violent and the effects can be life-long.

The Issue Of Premarital Sex
... to the pressures of society. The consequences
of sex have been increasingly ignored, as many forget that pregnancies and
STDs occur, and many just turn to abortion for an answer.
Topics regarding sex have risen primarily because of the complex
physical and emotional aspects of the sex act. The physical aspects
include excitement, foreplay, intercourse, and possible pregnancy or STD
transmission. The emotional aspects, however, are not so simple. These
three aspects have led to the views held by the different sides to the
The power that sex wields can be expressed by comparing it to fire.
Fire is good bec ...
