Personally, I align myself with the latter, however I do feel there are oc...

Augustine on Time
Augustine on Time Book XI of the confessions deals with the nature of time. St. Augustine begins his inquiry of time by questioning its connection to God.

Characteristics of Modern Condition
Characteristics of Modern Condition What can I say about the modern society? It reminds me of iron it is very hard to mould and the process is very slow. Our society is very conservative.

As Nietzsche said: To be evil is not to act in accordance with custom, to practice things not sanctioned by custom, to resist tradition, however rational or stupid ...

Gay Marriage
Gay Marriage I really hate writing this paper for one simple reason. I shouldn't have to. This is America. We shouldn't have to 'defend' gay-marriage because it should be automatic.

We have the right to stand in the middle of the street and scream, I hate Reagan! The broadcast explained that in Russia they couldn't do that. I remember that because it was very ...
