Explain your decision. * * If I had a great story that would increase my website’s popularity but compromise our national security, you bet your butt I wouldn’t publish it. I believe myself to be a patriot. If I were to give up information key to the safety of the people of the United States by jeopardizing our national security, not only would it be considered a felony and potentially put me in prison for the rest of my life, but I would feel guilty for betraying my country. Besides, if I was going to make a name for myself, it would be through hard honest work.
Habeas Corpus shouldn’t have been brought up here, being an American citizen you have this right along with due process, but once you fight on the side of the opposition you should renounce such rights. To hear one case just because someone was born in the United States is not right to the other detainees that were caught alongside Hamdi. Enemy combatants are given certain rights to counsel now and I feel that the same outcome could have been reached if the Supreme Court would have remained out of this case. The Executive Branch should have optimal preference on proceedings about enemy combatants/detainees. The President is our Commander in Chief, taking his powers away presses him not to be able to do his sworn duties to keep our nation safe.
Washington talks to the people of the United States and tells them that he is not needed as president anymore and that the nation will do just fine without him as the leader. He believed that he was not qualified enough to take on the role of president. Washington strongly believed that the unity of the states will determine how well the nation does without him. He warned the people to look out for any evidence of suspicious things that would ruin the Union and would cause states to secede. People must believe they’re American’s and not just Texan’s or Iowan’s, meaning they need to fight for the country and not just for their state.
Another rather ambitious aim of theirs was to indoctrinate the people with their Weltanschauung or in other words they were aiming to turn the population into committed members of their Volksgemeinschaft (a community whose members would be Aryan, genetically healthy, socially useful and politically committed to the regime). Nazi propaganda’s purpose was to influence people and to literally brainwash them without them even realizing it. Another aim was to ensure that the message delivered is so simple that even those without any education are able to understand it. It was carefully thought out to control and impose Nazi ideology. Hitler’s aim was to influence the nations spiritually on the behalf of the State and gain devoted followers on his side.
She deserves a glowing crown of gold!” (Sophocles, 1984, pg. 95). This difference in what the people believed was just and what the king thought was just shows us how a state ruled by the people rather than one man is the best way to keep the states power over its people in check. Antigone finds Creon’s decree to be unjust so she breaks the law and does what she thinks is the right thing to do. In most societies this type of disrespect for the law is looked
This lead people to become suspicious of foreigners and the government placed many restrictions on the security of people from other countries. The political arguments are that increased immigration leads to a better representation of the country to other countries. Greater mobility will increase the bargaining power of individuals in their negotiations with different faces of sovereign power. Exit can spur political development, by making states work harder to keep their people from leaving. A truly competitive global market for labor would lead to greater competition among countries and likely improve
Also, other factors that could cause harm: national security, pornography, and privacy. The biggest factor around the globe is media. Journalism shouldn't be censored out blocked out. It should be about ethics and sense of right and wrong. Anything that has to with journalist, reporters, news, etc., is what the government has more control over than what we think.
“The more powerful it grows / the greater the need for humanity” (Lao Tzu, 31). When you’re in control you have to have trust in everyone and you shouldn’t have to prepare to defend yourself. To stay in leadership patience, compassion, and simplicity are qualities that are need. Machiavelli thought that good laws come naturally essentially because of a good military, or the preparation for war. However, Lao Tzu believes that good rules fall into place because you let everything run its course.
He holds power as a man of great intelligence and a devious nature, but his plans to destroy the government’s power are not to do it himself, but to empower the people of England to do it for themselves. Showing that the power was always in the people to remove their oppressors, had they just had the right push. Although this could of happened without V’s plotting, it is fair to say that the people of England, with the oppressed state they live in, would not of acted upon this “power in numbers” they possessed, a notion that the government had relied upon to keep their power. In contrast, we are never introduced to the way in which the government gained the power it holds over the people, but it is maintained through the people’s submissiveness and there willingness to simply go along with whatever the government tells them to do. This is shown in Exam Day by the dialogue, the parents of the boy seem semi-distraught yet they do nothing to stop it.
What the Sons of Liberty did was just use fear for political gain. A real patriot would stand by all moral standards throughout their fight for independence because if they didn’t they would be just as bad as the enemy. The Sons of Liberty were a huge part of the American Revolution without a doubt,
