The images that were broadcasted all over America did not please the public and before long riots and protests were being held in the streets to end the war. This was because hundreds of American soldiers had died in a war they thought was coming to an end. The Tet Offensive proved otherwise and caused a major disagreement between the public and the American government. Many people believe that this almost forced the government to end the war because without the moral support from their own country there would be no chance in another. On the other hand, the Americans actually won the fight and in doing so managed to kill thousands of Vietcong’s, unmasked Vietcong’s, which they had not been able to do very well until this point.
Also, ‘The Black Panthers’ were a very violent group and saw King’s campaign as time consuming and feared it being forgotten in the process. The group called for a revolutionary war against authority, but it never happened and there are many conspiracy theories as to why the group ended. King was later assassinated at his hotel, showing that his race was still not equal, and some people still looked down on African Americans and didn’t like the change. Although all of these activists had the same idea and values, they had very different ideas of how to achieve their ideal society. Doctor King, Malcolm X, and the Black Panthers all contributed to the major changes of society’s attitudes towards the African American people by targeting very different audiences in society.
And I interrupt this not only as just other gods, but also things that hinder our religion. We do need to accept other and love other’s but not to turn against God’s laws and plans for us. Also, with the Declaration of Independence says from the first amendment that the government will make no law about making a new religion. So, even the bible and the First Amendment says they should be separate.
Being away from home, family, and almost every luxury is both physically and emotionally taxing, having the courage to do this makes being away easier, being told by a piece of paper that you are leaving for a few months to a few years to a location you don’t know, is terrifying. The very lives of our soldiers could hang in the choice of having a draft, as suicides have always been present in all levels of military services. Being sent away involuntarily would easily send almost anyone into a depression, unsafe to themselves and possibly others. Under such stress a soldier can’t perform his best and would therefore only hinder the other’s. (Use outside source and cite it!)
Also, many people do not believe in God. Jung himself countered this argument by stating that atheism itself is a religion. It seems that he will not allow anything to counter his ideas. If his theory is not open to falsification, some would argue that it is meaningless. • Jung’s idea of religious experience – Martin Buber argues that an experience which takes place in the mind, rather than externally to the individual, is not a religious experience.
Is the 2nd Amendment Worth Saving? Is the 2nd Amendment Worth Saving? “Good people don’t need laws to tell them to act responsibly… and bad people will find a way around the laws.” – Plato “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants” - Thomas Jefferson “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed, which Americans possess over the people of almost every nation… (Where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” - James Madison -The Federalist Sandy Hook: Littleton, Colorado (Columbine): Newtown, Connecticut. These names strike fear in to anyone who was alive to hear about them as they happened. These were mass shootings in very public places, schools.
In my view of this it seems futile to talk of permanent, everlasting peace or to make plans for the peace. A particularly disturbing side of modern wars is that they tend to become global so that they may engulf the entire world. An example of this would be the War on Terror that the United States is now fighting. But there are people who consider war as something grand and heroic and regard it as something that bring out the best in man, but this does not in any way alter the fact that war is a terrible, and dreadful to our society. War helps our society grow.
Are people born good or bad? Michael Caballero Although Hobbes was right about nature of people that is evil he was wrong about government having absolute power, in the other hand Locke was right about power corrupts the people but wrong about people being born with a clean slate. For example Adolf Hitler, he was the worst because he killed a lot of innocent Jews. Hobbes thought that the world was evil because he lived during a war and saw stuff that nobody would want to see. Ayatollah Khomeini one of the 20th century's most ruthless leaders.
There is no easy answer as to why mankind in this time is so inclined to conquer and violate. I don’t think that anyone will ever understand why humans and societies began to hate each other so. It is a broad statement, and there are societies that are at a sort of isolated peace and have no grudges with other countries, but more often than not the case is the opposite. We fight over money, land, and race. Land will always be the same land, yet leaders battle over ownership of it.
This to me is different than a planned and strategic murder of another person. I do not agree with the idea that men and women in uniform defending the freedoms of their country are ever to be considered murders when they are only following the orders they were given to support our freedoms. Terrorists are a different story all together. In war there are people who are out to hurt others for no good reason. They pick on the weak; women, children and elderly.
