Capital punishment should be a tool used on many serious felons instead of life in jail. Capital punishment would lower crime rates and subsequently lower overcrowding in our prisons. Also, United States prisons cost taxpayers an exorbitant amount of money to fund and keep running. The number of inmates in jails today has steadily increased

Throughout my study of the individual, I have come to realise that the establishment’s desire for control, discourages individuality and has serious consequences for society. This is portrayed in Jonathan Demme’s film ‘Manchurian Candidate’ (2004) and Ken Kesey’s ‘One flew over the cuckoos nest” (1969). Both texts indicate that from any context it is hard to be an individual, because of the power, control and deception of the establishment, and the consequences of personal expression. An individual is anyone who defies against the rules and regulations of the establishment, being the media, governments and organisations. In both Manchurian and Cuckoo’s the individual is immersed in a dominating

Kevin Kuo Prof. McCormick English 1C 12 May 2014 The Imperfect Society: Justifying Civil Disobedience What exactly justifies civil disobedience? Civil disobedience is the refusal to obey laws perceived as unjust by an individual or a group of individuals. It is considered to be a form of nonviolent resistance in order to force amendments to such unjust laws. If plotted on a spectrum representing criminal levels of protest, from pacifist obedience to violent revolution, civil disobedience would land at the midpoint. Although some say that nothing justifies civil disobedience, nevertheless civil disobedience is always justified because of inalienable rights, free will, conscience, and the general will.
There are proposals that include housing inmates into tents and converting the prison’s gymnasium into barracks. This is only a few of many issues that overcrowded jails are looking to face in the near future with quickly rising populations. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, stronger sentencing is being induced because it’s the belief that incarceration is the reason that violent crimes have declined throughout the U.S. during the 1990’s. It seems as though prevention is no longer the focus but rather punishment. Aside from that, serious crimes may have gone down but the publicities and medias attention towards it have not.
