African and Native American Slavery Scot Ferguson 11-12-96 period 2 The 1500's, a time of discovery, was when the Europeans came to dominate most of the New World. The Europeans traveled to Africa and captured Africans to help develop their land and satisfy their need for power. I feel that the treatment of the Indians and Africans by the Europeans was completely unjustifiable. While the Indians and Africans were less technologically advanced and the Europeans were uneducated, in this particula

Justice Every action or decision we make is either justifiable or unjustifiable. Justice is usually decided by society or the norm. The norm changes from one society to another. However, there are always laws that can be broken, consequences that must follow, and punishment that must be imparted. Justice can be seen in two different ways, social and criminal. Justice is in the eye of the beholder because we all have different attitudes about right and wrong. Criminal justice is a term that r

Adam Smith
Adam Smith Adam Smith, a brilliant eighteenth-century Scottish political economist, had the advantage of judging the significance ol colonies by a rigorous examination based on the colonial experience of 300 years. His overview has a built-in bias: he strongly disapproved of excessive regulation of colonial trade by parent countries. But his analysis is rich with insight and remarkably dispassionate in its argument. Adam Smith recognized that the discovery of the New World not only brought weal

Since the beginning of time people have pondered the existence of evil
Since the beginning of time, people have pondered the existence of evil. What makes people laugh at other peoples’ mistakes? What makes a little kid relentlessly pick on the outcast? What fuels the hate that people have for each other? Everyone has their individual views and answers to these questions, and their own definition of evil. Evil is an entity inside every living being in the world characterized by selfishness, torturing, and ultimately, the unjustifiable taking of others’ lives. For

The citizens of the United States have the right to enforce or ban the law of capital punishment on a state level. Since then, the punishments or scheduled punishments have increased at a steady rate. Religious beliefs amo

Collective Farms of the Soviet Union Jonah Adels November 4, 1998 The Soviet kolhoz, the term for a collective farm owned by all of its members, was a model of the inefficiency and tyranny of Joseph Stalin, their originator. Introduced as a way to industrialize Russia, they alternated between being a great success and being a utterly complete failure. Although Stalin’s plans did in the end industrialize Russia, the costs were unjustifiable. An entire class of people was eliminated and famine wa

Is it a wise move to abolish capital punishement? The question of capital punishment and its abolition is a highly debatable one. Capital punishment means death sentences. That is to say, a person found guilty of murder or some such outrageous crime is punished with death. The debate arises because of the fact that every human being has a right to live and that no one has the authority to deprive another of his life. Moral, legal sociological and even metaphysical argument are adduced in suppor

Moral and Ethical Dilemmas One of the most difficult trials I face in my life are ethical and moral dilemmas. They can be soul-wrenching and searching experiences that tax my character and cause me to really put my money where my mouth is.

Why The End of Integration? After four decades of school integration America has given up, and the question is: Why?. I believe the answer is because absolutely nothing worked! Bussing was a hassle, most magnet schools were set up for false reasons, and everything was very costly. With everything they tried there were still no significant changes in the test scores of the minority students. So now here we are in the late 21st century and it can all be summed up with what Chris Hansen of the A

Civil Disobedience both a right and responsibility of a person to fight an unjust law. Government is given the right to control a group of people by the people composing the group.
