Many hear the topic and automatically think it wrong due to their high values in morality. But really, who is to say that cloning is in fact morally wrong?

Pornography Feminist positions on pornography currently break down into three rough categories. The most common one is that pornography is an expression of male culture through which women are commodified and exploited. A second view, the liberal position, combines a respect for free speech with the principle a woman's body, a woman's right and thus produces a defense of pornography along the lines of, I don't approve of it, but everyone has the right to consume or produce words and images.

War Laws
War Laws The term laws of war refers to the rules governing the actual conduct of armed conflict. This idea that there actually exists rules that govern war is a difficult concept to understand. The simple act of war in and of itself seems to be in violation of an almost universal law prohibiting one human being from killing another. But during times of war murder of the enemy is allowed, which leads one to the question, if murder is permissible then what possible laws of war could there b...

For hundreds of years, English has been continuously changing. Words that were unacceptable 300 years ago are now commonplace. English has always had a trademark of being a comfortable language, the language of the common people (MacNeil 143).

Some Conservatives do not like changes because they claim that standard Engl...

Wheatley
Wheatley dBlack Supremacy Throughout history, white anglo-saxons have been notorious for mistreating all races other than it's own.

The earth is burdened by the white man! That is the true meaning of what Malcolm X is stating; the words Faustian machinations, meaning evil plotting, implies the whole white po...

Interests Of Women.
Interests Of Women. This paper will show that many of her most popular beliefs are not only detrimental to society, but also not in the best interests of women. In letters from a war zone, Andrea Dworkin presents a collection of speeches and short articles she has composed during her career as a writer and activist. Many of her articles deal with censorship and pornography. One claim is central to all of these, pornography is an act and not an idea, thus censorship is not relevant to it. In resp...

However, a political activist group, self-named the Republic of Texas (RT), has raised the question of legality of the a...

I was from the beginning scandalised, I must own, with this resemblance between the Deity and human creatures. --Philo David Hume wrote much about the subject of religion, much of it negative. In this paper we shall attempt to follow Hume's arguments against Deism as Someone knowable from the wake He allegedly makes as He passes. This kind of Deism he lays to rest. Then, digging deeper, we shall try our hand at a critique of his critique of religion, of resurrecting a natural belief in God. F...

Essay on Manifest Destiny
