Almost every nation in the world has experienced a revolution A revolu
Almost every nation in the world has experienced a revolution. A revolution can be simply defined as a change. When a country undergoes a revolution, its ideals that it once believed in are being modified. Sometimes revolutionaries act intellectually, yet others may respond physically through destruction. Some may be peaceful, some short lasting, and some pointless. Historians do argue on identifying whether a revolution has occurred. Revolutions usually follow a rupture in the nation's event

Through out history the world has seen some generations that have made an impact more than all of its predecessors. The decade from 1960 to 1970 was definitely one of those eras. The people didn't follow the teachings of its elders, but rejected them for an alternative culture which was their very own(Harris 14). Made up of the younger population of the time this new culture was such a radical society that they were given their own name which is still used today. They came to be called the Hippi

Plutonium, Our Country's Only Feasible Solution Abstract: Should we begin to manufacture one of the most destructive and infamous substances on the face on the Earth once again? The engineers say yes, but the public says no. The United States stopped making this element with the ban on manufacturing nuclear weapons. But with the continuing problem with our ever diminishing energy sources, some want us to begin using more nuclear energy and less energy from natural resources. This paper is going

Werner Heisenberg and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
Werner Heisenberg and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Werner Heisenberg, born in the dawn of the twentieth century became one of its greatest physicists; he is also among its most controversial. While still in his early twenties, he was among the handful of bright, young men who created quantum mechanics, the basic physics of the atom, and he became a leader of nuclear physics and elementary particle research. He is best known for his uncertainty principle, a component of the so-called Cope
BOOK REVIEW
BOOK REVIEW
BOOK REVIEW Scientific racism claims that biological inheritance determines the character and behavior of social groups we identify as races. Despite its history of oppression and genocide, the scientific defense of racial inequality demonstrates a disturbing persistence. Murphy Ballen’s study of scientific racism in Great Britain and the United States in the 1920s and 1930s appropriately deals not with its demise but with its retreat. Making extensive use of private correspondence, Ballen relat

Sigmund Freud's views continue to influence the contemporary practices
Sigmund Freud's views continue to influence the contemporary practices of many psychologists today. Many theories of psychology have been influenced by Freud's psychoanalytic method. Many of his basic concepts are still used by many theorists. Known as the father of psychology, Freud's ideas toward the science will be remembered, studied and utilized by many psychologists for years to come. In this paper I am going to discuss the life of Freud, his ideas toward the science, and his book, A Ge

The Politics of Homelessness
The Politics of Homelessness The problems of the homeless are real, but as with anything, the details of reality depend on the agenda of the person telling the story. Unfortunately, in the case of this issue, it is the homeless who suffer while the political armies fight for preeminence. In fact, the politics of homelessness has become a multibillion dollar business that is more concerned with protecting its own existence than it is in actually helping its constituents. Throwing money at the pro

The North and the South lived two totally different ways of life leadi
The North and the South lived two totally different ways of life, leading to an inevitable conflict between these two sections. Sectionalism in the United States was started and continued because of the different views of living according to the North and the South. Economically, politically, and socially the North and the South clashed with opposing opinions of each other. The North and the South had opposing ways of how to handle their business.

As a composer, Igor Stravinsky knew many conductors. Later, he wrote an essay about them. What could he write about them? What would your typical composer have to say about conductors? Surprisingly, when Stravinsky wrote about conductors he became very critical. Sarcasm and mockery permeate throughout the passage when he discusses them. Stravinsky uses a few schemes to convince his reader of the conductor's insignificance. First, the language Stravinsky uses in his passage is very caustic. In a

Throughout The Country Between Us, Forche presents different stories of suffering, revealing the way politics intersects personal freedom, consciousness and behavior.

In an interview by David Montenegro, Forche said: Sometimes, in the course of speaking about Central America, the subj

Isolationism is a policy of maintaining a nation's rights and interest
: Isolationism is a policy of maintaining a nation's rights and interests without alliances. Isolationism was present in many different places before the United States adopted this policy. Japan, before its pact with Great Britain in 1902, lived without allies for a thousand years, during the last half of the century in which it grew to world power. Great Britain lived from 1822 to 1902 in isolation with only temporary allies, except for a dormant traditional alliance with Portugal. The United S

When And Why Did Communism Emerge
When And Why Did Communism Emerge? Communism is a concept or system of society in which the major resources and means of production are owned by the community rather than by individuals. This concept has been around since Plato’s Republic, but it reemerged in mid-19th century due to many causes. Some are more obvious than others, and in this paper I would like to discuss, in length, when and why did communism emerge. Some minor aspects of communism were seen in ancient Oriental societies.

Opposing the Death Penalty
Opposing the Death Penalty Capital punishment is defined as the legal infliction of the death penalty. Today, in modern law, the death penalty is corporal punishment in its most severe form. It is irrevocable. It ends the existence of those punished, instead of temporarily imprisoning them. Although capital punishment is not intended to inflict physical pain, execution is the only corporal punishment still applied to adults. The usual alternative to the death penalty is life-long imprisonment. C

The United States of America has been called the Melting Pot for centuries, it's borders have for the most part been open to mass migrations of foreign people from countries all over the world. Some of these foreign people came here by force, under the bonds of slavery, while others came here voluntarily in anything that floats, flys, or would otherwise transport them to a new place with a promise of a better life. This has been, and is, historical fact, the inhabitants of the United States h
Bourbon Reforms
Bourbon Reforms
Bourbon Reforms During the 1700's, the Bourbon rulers of Spain carried out many government reforms. They lowered taxes and collected them more fairly. They also built roads and other public works, and the economy began to grow. Meanwhile, strong ties developed between Spain and France because the rulers of both countries were Bourbons. The Bourbon Reforms in Spain were inspired by the French model. There were three princes of the House of Bourbon : Philip V (1700-1746), and his two sons, Ferdina

Carthage was a city-state on the Greek model that had been founded by Phoenicians from Tyre in the 8th century. It was the strongest city in the Western Mediterranean by the 3rd century and its wealth rested on trade. Carthaginian merchants went from one end of the Mediterranean to the other, the city’s fleets were huge, and its army was one of the best in the ancient world. It was Carthage that pried loose the Greek hold on the western ports, and Carthaginian merchants traded as far north as E

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

Pythagoras was born in 580 BC on the island of Samos. Pythagoras spent his years traveling in search of wisdom and knowledge. He settled in Crotona, a Greek colony in southern Italy. Pythagoras was known as “the father of math and music” by his disciples, the Pythagoreans. They were inspired by his teachings, and they considered him a demigod. The P

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues of fees for A.A. membership; they are self-suppor

Evolution has by necessity, allowed the survival of the fittest. Primitive man had to forage and hunt for food from nature. Therefore, humans developed keen taste receptors for fat-rich, caloric foods. Because the availability of food was uncertain, those who had stores of fat in their bodies, would be more able to survive the harsh conditions of primitive life. In modern times, we still have the same though weakened taste receptors of primitive man. Thus, we still have the affinity for sugar b

Aristotle Prior to a look at Aristotle's ethics, I feel it is important to look at the man and his background. Aristotle, an Ionian, was born in Stagira, a Greek town on the northwest shores of the Aegean Sea in 384 B.C. At the age of eighteen he entered Plato's school called the Academy, staying there for nearly twenty years. Plato was quick to realize Aristotle's abilities and called him the Academy's brightest and most learned student. While there he wrote popular writings for general di

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” These words proudly recited by each of the forty two Presidents of this country, essentially dictate the duties of their office. This nation fought a long and difficult war to insure the preservation of freedom for its citizens, and as we left the battlefield victorious our founding fathers draft
Virtu and Fortuna
Virtu and Fortuna
Virtu and Fortuna Under close scrutiny, The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli is seen to be a mind-baffling construct of many levels of meaning, and, many might say, enigmatically so. It is hard to determine where Machiavelli is writing in earnest and where in sarcasm or self-condemnation. As John Plamenatz says, the perverse Machiavelli likes to make himself out worse than he is. He likes at times to shock his contemporaries... No doubt he succeeds. The important message here, though, is that the

Political Correctness is Numbing Political Correctness has, in the last few years, mutated from a useful instrument for enlightenment and change into a symbol of public and private views gone awry. This controversial philosophy is used by some special interests as a platform to force radical and often illogical teachings into the classrooms of colleges and universities across the U.S.. Unlike the abortion issue or the federal deficit which are very present forces guiding our national thought, p

What made United States involvement in Vietnam a tragedy was not the initial intent to save South Vietnam from Communism, but the persistence in mistaken efforts to achieve this goal long past the point where irreversible damage to United States society and institutions had occurred. What this statement is saying is that yes, Vietnam was a problem but the thing that made it a problem was not fighting the spread of communism in eastern Asia. The thing that made it a tragedy was that we stayed th

The 1800's were a tumultuous time for the United States of America. At that time the south was typically slave and the northerners were traditionally for freedom. The slave states of the south and the abolitionist in the north were quarreling and the government recognizing that made efforts to stop or delay the civil war. In 1819 Missouri wanted to enter the Union a slave state. At this time the 22 states of the Union were divided evenly 11 slave and 11 free. Northern states were afraid that if

The Ambitions of Napoleon From 1799 to 1814, France was in the hands of a keen military dictator of unheard of ability. Napoleon was one of history's greatest leaders. He realized he was the only one to end civil dispute in France, in order to create unity. Napoleon saw himself as a man of destiny. The glory of war and the empire he wanted to create was irresistible. For years he went from victory to victory, but in the end of his reign he was destroyed by his own restless ambition to take over

Yet at times these two forces within Cicero clash and contradict with the early stoic teachings. Cicero gradually adopted the stoic lifestyle but not altogether entirely, and this is somewhat due to the fact of what it was like to be a roman of the time. The morals of everyday Rome conflicted with some of the stoic ideals that were set by earl

Canada entered the war on August 10, 1914, sending 25 000 volunteers with a promise from Britain that they would return home by Christmas. However, when the war began to escalate Canada sent more troops to Europe. Meanwhile, the economy at home was forced to change in order to accommodate the war. On the Home Front as it was known, Canada was going though the greatest economic change that it had ever experienced. Because of the war, many new industries were formed in Canada's cities. In these

The turn of the century has always been a big deal for modern civiliza
The turn of the century has always been a big deal for modern civilizations. One hundred years of life is quite large compared with the average 70 or so given to most. Because of that, people tend to look in trends of decades, rather than centuries or millennia. When it does come time for a new century, when that second digit rotates, as it does so seldom, people tend to look for change. Events tend to fall before or after the century, not on top of it, and United States history, particularly,

appointed her for the position of Attorney General. Her inadequacy made Clinton look like a weak, unintelligent leader for appointing such an incapable advisor. To keep the advisors faithful to the leader, Machiavelli urges that advisors should be honored, made rich and be so content with their lot they would not betray their leader in fear of losing their position (The Prince 78). Advisors are most often turned from their leaders when they are discontent or filled with avarice. As critic Sebas
