Macbeth
Macbeth Macbeth is the epitome of what the literary world regards a tragic hero. His admirable qualities are supplanted with greed and hate when he is duped by the three witches. Thunder and lightning. Enter three Witches. Yes, it is the first scene from William Shakespeare's Macbeth, a tragic tale of one man's quest for power and his ultimate defeat. The story revolves around our tragic hero, Macbeth, and how an admirable and noble man, so established in society, can fall so greatly. Through

Discrimination
Discrimination The struggle for social and economic equality of Black people in America has been long and slow. It is sometimes amazing that any progress has been made in the racial equality arena at all; every tentative step forward seems to be diluted by losses elsewhere. For every Stacey Koons that is convicted, there seems to be a Texaco executive waiting to send Blacks back to the past. Throughout the struggle for equal rights, there have been courageous Black leaders at the forefront of

Judicial Choices Supreme Court conformations, much like everything else in politics and life, changed over the years. Conformations grew from insignificant and routine appointments to vital and painstakingly prolonged trials, because of the changes in the political parties and institutions. The parties found the Supreme Court to be a tool for increasing their power, which caused an increased interest in conformations. The change in the Senate to less hierarchical institution played part to the s

The elimination of violence should not be done in sport because the violence is a part of the game which would only hurt its pop

Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly

There were traditionalists who did not agree with this type of society. One major example of traditionalists versus modernists in the 1920’s was the Scopes Monkey Trial. In this trial, a jury had to decide the fate of John Scopes, who taught evolution to high school students. This trial was not just about the teaching of evolution

Capital Punishment in America The concept of a life for a life is as old as civilization itself (McCiellan 9). Capital punishment, the legal taking of the life of a criminal, has been utilized in response to three distinct catagories of offense. The three categories are: crimes against the person; crimes against property; and crimes which endanger the security of the nation (Horwitz 13). Capital punishment is still in use in the United States today, but has been abolished by many countries (II 5

Many people allege that they have been sexually harassed, but where is the line drawn in a changing society with morals differing from person to person. What’s offensive to one is totally accepta

In 1717, Bishop Hoadly told King George I, Whoever hath an absolute authority to interpret written or spoken laws; it is he who is truly the lawgiver to all intents and purposes and not the person who wrote or spoke them (Pollack, 153). Early sentiments similar these have blossomed in to a large scale debate over which branch of our government has the power to overturn laws that do not follow the foundations of our democratic system; the constitution.

Morgan got captured by one of King Arthur’s Knights and was summoned before the King. The King sentenced Morgan to die at 12:00 noon on the twenty-first of June, the ye

It emphasized literal interpretation of the Bible, and among other things, the virgin birth, the divinity of Jesus Christ, the physical resurrection, the second coming, and the resurrection of believers.

Some of his novels were about his life, but they do not tell all of the story.

The fact that the sex of the person committing the crime also plays an unnecessary role in our justice system. And with most of the United States citizens being Chr
