Euthanasia
Euthanasia The applied ethical issue of euthanasia, or mercy killing, concerns whether it is morally permissible for a third party, such as a physician, to end the life of a terminally ill patient who is in intense pain. The euthanasia controversy is part of a larger issue concerning the right to die. Staunch defenders of personal liberty argue that all of us are morally entitled to end our lives when we see fit. Thus, according to these people, suicide is in principle morally permissible. For h

This old continent also has also a spirit like no other, embodied by the people who inhabited it for so long that they have come to “identify spiritually with the land” (Terrill 200) – the Aborigines.

The sociological imagination is “a kind of interpretive imagination which does not treat its subject matter like objects in the natural world.

Perhaps the most controversial military decision of the twentieth cent
Perhaps the most controversial military decision of the twentieth century was Harry Truman's decision to use the atomic bomb. Before August 6, 1945, the threat of atomic warfare was far-off and not realistic. Once the bomb was dropped, however, war on earth would never be the same --- it could never be the same. Although the dropping of the bomb ensured a quick end to World War II, its negative repercussions greatly outweighed its benefits. The atomic bomb rocked the world, both physically and
