Case Study: Boy Scouts of America Anti-gay Policy Ronald Graves Sullivan University CMM401X May 31, 2013 Abstract As a private organization, the Boy Scouts of America legally have the right to exclude members but their stance or policy banning both gay scouts and leaders is the core issue which has led to conflict between those opposing the anti-gay policy and those in support of the policy. The current conflict surrounding the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy is not new to the organization as their ban on gay scouts and leaders has been a point of contention for many years. Supporters of the anti-gay policy want to keep the ban on gay members in place to align with the religious views and core values of the organization, while opponents of the policy are taking the position of inclusive membership, allowing for gay members and leaders to openly participate in the Boy Scouts of America. Keywords: anti-gay policy, ban, conflict, organization, members, leaders, exclude, Introduction The purpose of this paper is to analyze the conflict between the opponents and proponents of the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy by applying the ten conflict resolution strategies, as presented in Resolving Conflicts at Work: Ten Strategies for Everyone on the Job (2011) by Kenneth Cloke and Joan Goldsmith. The application of the ten conflict resolution strategies will lead to a better understanding of the true nature of the conflict surrounding the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy and offer up potential solutions to resolve said conflict.

English W 131, section 2779 14 November 2011 Comparative Analysis on Milgram’s Experiment and A Few Good Men The United States Marine Corps is no place for independent thinkers. The U.S. military system is based on the principle that nothing would function if soldiers were allowed to choose which orders to obey and which to ignore. But what if the order given is a crime? Who would be guilty, the soldier who carries out the crime or the superior officer who orders it? One movie that describes this question of who is responsible in military crime is Rob Reiner’s movie, A Few Good Men.
The principle was adopted by the Founding Fathers due to their fear of totalitarianism. Montesquieu argued for separation of powers in his book L’Esprit de Lois, where he stated that separation of powers will avoid tyranny ‘When the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person…there can be no liberty.’ On the contrary to the US, the UK’s powers are fused; the Prime Minister is both the executive and part of the legislature. In the US system there is also a separation of personnel, this means that no person can be a member of more than one branch at the same time.

Being the son of a top ranking admiral in the Navy, his case became highly publicized. While obviously being against torture, he also believes it is morally wrong for the torturer. In his work, he gives three main points to support his war on torture: the issue of the reliability intelligence gained (423), other country’s following in our footsteps regarding torture (424), and the mental harm inflicted in the process (424). In war, the soldiers strategically use intelligence in order to gain an upper hand over the enemy. But what good is intelligence if it’s not accurate (423)?
Thomas Jefferson and Philosophical Consistency Thomas Jefferson said “the excise law is an infernal one” (Doc. A), here he is in 1794 talking how a minor indirect tax is infernal. When Thomas Jefferson was elected president in 1800, he began to follow a significantly looser interpretation of the Constitution. This new view first occurred when Jefferson’s view of the Federal financial plan changed. Throughout the previous 10 years, he was strongly opposed to Hamilton’s taxes.
Khrushchev was obviously trying to play the role of the victim here in his response following Kennedy's speech to the nation about their meeting. The letter from Khrushchev was slanted from Khrushchev's point of view and made it appear that Khrushchev was the one who wanted to make a deal, while Kennedy was rash and jumped to conclusions. This isn’t the first time in the letter Khrushchev tries to give himself a reasonable and moral Ethos. He opens the letter talking about his current vacation and claims that he didn’t wish to talk politics but had been
First, he says “A prince should make himself feared in such a way that, though he does not gain he love, he escapes hatred.” Clearly, Machiavelli does not understand the importance of love and respect.

If somebody becomes overly controlling they will lose all respect
