The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society
The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society since the earliest civilizations and continues to be used as a form of punishment in countries today. It has been used for various crimes ranging from the desertion of soldiers during wartime to the more heinous crimes of serial killers. However, the mere fact that this brutal form of punishment and revenge has been the policy of many nations in the past does not subsequently warrant its implementation in today's society. The

In the Hindu lands of ancient India, there was a class structure called the caste system. It divided the society into four, well defined groups. It was born of dharma which dictated a rigid class structure. In spite of the divisions among different class members, the system worked well. Buddhism came along and challenged the notion. Buddha taught that birth and the happenstance of who or what your parents were, was not a basis for ranking in society. Instead it was your deeds that dictated your

The Fatal Equilibrium
The Fatal Equilibrium
The Fatal Equilibrium Principle of Economics 2304 When faced with competition, firms must seek profit maximization in order to grow and survive against the threat of new competitors. As explained by the natural selection theory presented by some economists, firms that do not seek to maximize profits may be forced to close their doors when competitors offer higher-quality products to consumers (Ruffin & Gregory 135). Further, in Adam Smiths view of capitalism, firms must pursue their self-intere
