Criminals are not known for following the rules so all law abiding citizens have the right to defend themselves by any means needed. You could be going through a tough area of town and having that self defense on you makes you feel a bit more comfortable and safer, protecting oneself and family is a personal duty and the government should not impede the ability of responsible adults to defend themselves from potential harm. You got to take the good with the bad
This doesn’t mean athletes should be alright to use them, if they are going to allow legal enhancers their should be an extremely strict limit on the kind they can take and how much they can take. This information from (sprayflex.com). On this website there was no information on who kept it going or anything of that sort, it looks as though the site was kept up by the bodybuilders. The problem with using illegal muscle enhancers is as well obvious is it as common sense: they are illegal and dangerous. They cause horrendous, dangerous health problems, and they
He is not looking to maybe persuade his audience of the cruel and bitter treatment of his people that came from Great Britain. He is very adamant about his argument and uses these words to help prove his point. Jefferson’s use of imagery helps the audience really understand the way things worked when he was in Great Britain and how it became completely necessary to dissolve the political bands between Britain and the United States. “He has refused Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.” This makes people develop this image of the King sitting on his thrown while people are not even given the necessary needs for living. “He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.” This helps develop this image of the King putting these people in these awkward and uncomfortable situations just to make it difficult to pass laws and make it so that it is not worth putting up a fight and they should just give into the King’s desires.
Not only does such an invention allow “The Party” to monitor its population even in the 'privacy of their own homes', but as shown in the phrase “no way of knowing” the threat represented by the Telescreen is far more effective. The uncertainty created by the definite “no way” show the reader that the people of Airstrip One live in constant fear of their rulers, giving a sense of the paranoia festered from the unknown preventing dissension by itself, whilst a person with certainty may become accustomed to their position and decide to fight. Through this unease Orwell's Party maintain a constant presence and therefore a continual reminder of their authority. Alternatively in Brave New World the tide of technology is unchecked, with “The World Controllers” turning every innovation to their own purposes. Perhaps the most prevalent is the fictitious “Bokanovski Process”, referred to as “the principle of mass production at last applied to biology.” Not only does “at last” tell the reader early on something of the culture of Huxley's dystopia but the concept of the predestination and the system of “Alphas and Epsilons”, “future sewage workers and future […] Directors of Hatcheries.” This is both a shock to the uncertainty of the early 30s in which the book was received but also indicates a
Imagine living under the authority of a government that’s unnervingly similar to communism. Your every choice is dictated by a government who controls your life based on the issues of minorities. A Buy Nothing Day is completely ridiculous and unnecessary. We should not establish an annual Buy Nothing Day because the government wasn’t formed to control citizens’ moral/selfish
It is easy to argue that people who are doing no wrong have nothing to fear from being filmed but that ignores the fact that people ought to have the right to go about their business without being constantly monitored by the authorities. It might be said that the right to privacy is not as important as improvements in public safety that CCTV brings, but the sad fact is it does not increase public
Gardner’s ideas are too drastic and I believe he didn’t have enough support in his argument that his plans would actually decrease the murders in gang violence. To say that his thoughts on drugs are the missing piece to gang-violence; I agree with him one-hundred percent. Yet, to pinpoint on drugs as the only reason viciousness and violence happens in gangs, is almost too good to be true. Dan may as well fly off to Never-Never land, because those dreams aren’t ever coming true. First off, I would like to thank Gardner for his enlightening point of view, of how gang violence is heavily influenced by the whole drug trade and the black market that associates itself with it.
Thought crimes being bad thoughts about the government or Big Brother. This shows how in the novel the government isn’t giving anyone privacy, so to say, because they know what your thinking and if its bad thoughts about the government you get
Parts of the medieval court system which are still used in our American court system today Open-door policy The notion that our system is better because law and order happens behind closed doors especially needs to be challenged,There is a real downside to keeping those who are punished out of the public eye—we often have no idea how they are being treated most medieval communities lacking any proper policing, crime prevention was trusted in the hands of the village common-folk. There was no reason—or means—for punishment to be any different, say experts. "Punishments therefore had to be simple and generally seen to be fair," according to the online exhibitions of the United Kingdom's National Archives. "Fierce, physical mutilation common in earlier periods, was now rarely used. "Though murderers were often executed, the majority of lesser medieval offenses were punished by shaming the criminal publicly, according to Carrel.
We need to implement better public safety, for example; arming mall cops, hiring more resource officers in schools and better equipping those officers to react. We also have poor measures in place in terms of background checks. It is too easy to purchase a firearm since it only requires a basic criminal background check, and the status quo even allows the purchase of firearms at gun shows without one. Closing this gap could ensure that guns don’t fall into the wrong hands. We also need to broaden background checks and analyze more than just criminal history.
