The move by the citizens to understand the importance of civilization profoundly affected the future endeavors of the nation. Citizens realized the darkness of corruption after getting to the limelight of civilization. Realizing the benefits of a corruption free country, Americans embarked on the development. Their ideology of fighting corruption was significant in the long-term. Among the benefits included development, equality in social amenities, democracy among other things.
Many of Dr. Roy Spencer’s views I can see as very rational. His references of actual government actions better proves how the United States government tends to want to use money as a “magic pill” that will fix the cancerous economic state the country has been in for years. While I am sure that there are politician who are still concerned with the well being of the average American, Dr Spencer’s comments about the job security in politics ,without accountability for wrong doing, should open the eyes of every American that has allowed for this corruption to
There were also other key factors such as the ideas of new liberalism, national efficiency, political pragmatism and national security to be taken into consideration of why the government changed its policy. It can be argued that the investigations of Charles Booth and Seebohm Rowntree results into Britain’s poverty were a significant motivating factor behind social reform in the nineteenth century. It revealed the true and mainly unsuspected levels of poverty which the wealthier classes of Britain were unaware of and was difficult to ignore as it was based on hard scientific data that the Victorians admired greatly and not simply an opinion by leading the government by abandoning its policy and adapting a more interventionist approach. The first investigation was conducted by Charles Booth, originally a Liverpool ship owner but by 1889 a London businessman, who doubted the claims of socialists that a quarter of the population lived in extreme poverty. At first he believed that the level of poverty in Britain was limited and could be dealt with by charity.
One reason why the Conservatives won is there Stop-Go economic policy. Although the policy itself was bad the Conservatives engineered it by making it a go period when the election came round. They did this by ‘electioneering’ the Budget and cut income tax, purchase tax and the duty on beer. This made the public feel like the economy was good as most of them vote with their wallets they voted Conservative. The Labour economy policies are also a reason why they lost.
The main similarity that both articles highlight is the topic of morals. “What is morally correct?” I can imagine if they could sit down to talk about their work they would come to a common ground in their beliefs. Steve Buist’s article highlights the unethical behavior between researchers and companies that fund researches, and how these behaviors can be improved. “Improving the transparency around the financial relationships between researchers and companies is one way to deal with the potential conflicts of interest that can arise” (Buist, S., 2012). One such example is the “most reputable scientific journals, such as the New England Journal of Medicine, now require the authors of scientific papers to make detailed disclosure of their commercial financial relationships as a prerequisite for publication” (Buist, S., 2012).
The University of California was in error of poor ethical codes. Bin Han would not have gone through all of this if the University had better control of business research. There were others that felt the repercussions of this case. A California State Legislator, Judy Chu, has said this case had the same type of allegations as a former one, Dr. Wen Ho Lee, a physicist, charged with stealing classified materials. Asian Americans are said to be marked by these types of actions.
Eisenhower’s administration was to a somewhat large extent successful in addressing Cold War fears after World War II through attempts at promoting capitalism and preventing the spread of communism. The end of the Second World War put many American citizens in fear. Some of the fears addressed by Eisenhower were mass hysteria, the Kremlins affect on our people, depression and keeping the economy up. (doc a) Communism was a huge fear at this time, and the secretary of state, John Dulles was able to help with this problem during Eisenhower’s presidency. His major concern was the spread of communism in America.
The endorsement groups offer bribes and ask for unnecessary promises to the politicians running for office. The temptation of falling into these traps is monstrous. According to Obama, these politicians feel that if they do not accept these bribes or arguments then they will lose out on endorsement deals as well as votes. Taking endorsements are not bad in anyway. However, a company endorses a certain individual for reasons such as political similarities or to help promote their product.
Jerrod Coulter Ap Gov Pd.8 PAC’S are groups of people or companies who are likeminded forming political committees to fund certain political purposes. These PAC’s are perfectly legal however they are undermining our government by swaying political leaders to lean towards protecting their interest in return for more money. In this way the roles that these groups fill is no more than to slow down and distort our political process for their own agenda. I argue that PAC’s are the biggest threat to our Republic’s democratic process currently. Big oil and coal is major political influence in America and it’s very evident, very recently at a meeting of the United States house committee of science, space, and technology.
The government, according to Thoreau, is not just a little corrupt or unjust in the course of doing its otherwise-important work, but in fact the government is primarily an agent of corruption and injustice. Because of this, it is "not too soon for honest men to rebel and revolutionize. " Political philosophers have counseled caution about revolution because the upheaval of revolution typically causes a lot of expense and suffering. Thoreau contends that such a cost/benefit analysis is inappropriate when the government is actively facilitating an injustice as extreme as slavery. Such a fundamental immorality justifies any difficulty or expense to bring to an end.
