The First Amendment reads: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The First Amendment makes it legal to burn the American Flag. Lastly, flag burning should not be illegal because, if it were to be, Americans would have their right taken away. As Supreme Court Justice William Brennan stated, in a flag burning case, "Punishing desecration of the flag dilutes the very freedom that makes this emblem so
Julie Pense English 101, sec DE 08/25/14 Rough draft V’s Prolixity In reading “V for Vendetta “by Alan Moore, I have come to an understanding that some of society see V as a terrorist and not for the good but in my opinion he is very mad and angry at society, the way it’s going with all the wrong and how the government is are treating its people. Which brings me to ask the question is “V” a terrorist or an anti- super hero to the people? The novel “V for Vendetta” has many different arguable points. One of “V” points would be, freedom or dictatorship. "V" has many complex and interesting sides to his character or shall we say archetype.

The west needed trade partners in the east and they couldn’t trade with communist states. And therefore took action in stopping communism as effectively as they could. If Stalin hadn’t had such a want for communist states which obeyed him and more influence in Europe on top of what he already it wouldn’t have been as likely to be a war. There wouldn’t be a spread of communism and the west wouldn’t of had to take action which led to hostility and the cold war. Especially since the conditions in the cold war countries controlled by communism was atrocious.
These feelings towards a Government often occur in today’s society and the portrayal of this in V for Vendetta emphasises the discontent to the audience and presents us with a negative view on society as a whole; as it relates to people like Mugabe and his Government who control by fear and intimidation and are the centre of discontent. An extremely effective technique McTeigue used to present a negative view on society is dialogue. After the V destroys the Old Bailey the media report that the building was actually demolished for structural reasons. While watching this report on TV Evey’s co-worker exclaims, “Do you believe that load of bollocks?” This illustrates the unhappiness within the masses and the discontent they hold. Another example is a quote from Dascomb, “Our job is to report the news, not fabricate it... That's
Americans remembered with hostility the fervor of World War I propaganda efforts, which were later regarded as violating basic rights as well as conveying misinformation. At first, the government was reluctant to engage in propaganda campaigns, but pressure from the media, the business sector and advertisers who wanted direction persuaded the government to take an active role. Regardless, the government insisted that its actions were not propaganda, but a means of providing information. These efforts were slowly and haphazardly formed into a more unified propaganda effort, although never to the level of World War I. President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Office of War Information (OWI) in 1942.
The death penalty is wrong because states do not comply with the standards that have been set that keep the death penalty from being cruel and unusual. Cruel and unusual punishment is unconstitutional via the eighth amendment and states experimentation with secret new drugs has caused execution to become torturous. The second reason why the death penalty needs to be abolished is that capital punishment is a very large expenditure and wastes resources. Capital punishment is very expensive in
Of course, that Louis XIV and Marie-Antoinette understood that the people of France didn’t like them but they didn’t want to believe in it. That is one of the reasons why they both didn’t try to do anything. One small step could have changed the whole course of the French Revolution. If only, they would have gone and asked the people of France what they need and what they want them to do. The way that they could have done this is by giving fair taxes and giving people the freedom of opinion and speech.
Britain and France showed no resistance due to the appeasement policy followed by the countries’ governments. Britain had several reasons for not opposing the remilitarization such as it believed the treaty had been harsh on Germany. It also believed that the people would not support another war and it was not prepared for an offensive. Britain worried that if its attention was diverted to another war, it would not be able to control its widespread empire and thus lose colonies. France did not support the remilitarization but could not react as, it could not predict the strength of the German army and it knew that nor Britain nor USA would go to war.
Unlike Mencian and Zhuangzi’s ideas on following spontaneity, Xunzi and Dai Zhen do not agree that we should trust our spontaneous inclinations. The purpose of this paper is to summarize Xunzi’s ideas on this issue. Xunzi proposed that human nature is bad in Xunzi 23.1, though he sometimes made his arguments seem to be human nature is neutral. His central argument is that people should not follow our spontaneity impulse, as they are not leading you to a good way. One example in 23.4, he said that human Xing is rather selfish, like to get warm when in cold, to get full when in hunger.
