Racial, ideological, political and religious conflicts that arise in countries often result in war, with many innocent people being killed in the process of fighting over who is ‘right’. The Holocaust, which was a result of many societies who envied or distrusted Jewish people, and Hitler, who exploited this animosity, secretly attempting genocide in the guise of subjugating the race which resulted in the death of just under six million Jews. Although the Holocaust is not regarded as a conflict of war because there was no fighting apart from in a few cases,
Most agree that gun-related injury or death of innocent citizens should never be tolerated, but there are opinions on the course to take in an effort to discover a solution. This paper will offer problems and solutions associated with past and present efforts to manage the issue of gun-related injuries/death. This paper will also render the discoveries and opinions of the above-mentioned group members as it relates to this controversial topic. Stricter gun-control laws do not help prevent gun-related injuries/deaths One method to prevent gun-related injuries/deaths is to make serious efforts to treat depression, mental health issues, and drug abuse in society. A large number of gun-related injuries/deaths are committed by members of society that have untreated disorders and others that simply neglect firearm safety rules and existing gun-control laws.
“Unsung Heroes” follows the same line of thought. It enumerates explicitly false heroes that are often found among former US presidents and military people. Zinn reminds us of the crimes each of them has committed. He suggests that these undue idols be taken off their pedestals and be replaced by real heroes, people who have sacrificed something to make a change, even if it was a small one. Being a war-opponent and social activist, Howard Zinn’s most likely intention in writing “Unsung Heroes” was to educate people about the mistakes (and deliberate lies) that are, in his opinion, very common in the perception of American history.
However, terrorists can argue that their methods are ethical and just to right wrongs due to political and social injustices. For instance; when people have been stripped of their rights or land, resorting to terrorism could be the only effective means to bring change. Many nations live in hunger or poverty—particularly the Third World countries—and see few options other than violent acts of terrorism to get the attention of the media in hopes of making their world better. After the attacks of September 11, Osama bin Laden, founder of Al-Queda, felt that the land of his people is being stripped by oppressive U.S. military forces simply by occupying the holy lands of
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
Violence is an intentional use of physical force or power against another person or against a group. It can cause serious injury or death. Resorting to violence often makes a dispute more difficult to solve than other means of conflict resolution. For example, let’s consider two countries that are arguing over the ownership of an area. If the countries try to solve their problems peacefully through negotiation, it may result to mild tension but in contrast, if they want a war over a piece of land; people would be killed, cities would be damaged or destroyed.
We often consider violence in terms of the aggressor, yet violence can be in a variety of ways even including self-defense. Violence and nonviolence are some argument Therefore, there is some questions that arise out of the argument of violence and nonviolence: “Is violence ever acceptable or nonviolence?” First of all, Comparing Violence and Nonviolence, nonviolence is less bloody. At first, no matter the situation, people never are violent in my opinion. I think of issues such as wars or if someone is trying to kill you or your family. How could someone not do anything?
The League also didn’t work because America didn’t join and it was the American President Woodrow Wilson who created it and it would never have worked unless all the nations were allowed to join. The failure of this organisation encouraged Hitler because he had witnessed how weak and inefficient it was. The Abyssinia Crisis is a good example of how the League
Liabilities who he believed should be dealt with. Hence he initiated the Holocaust against the Jews and sent several disabled people to their deaths along with them. This was the cost at which Hitler chased perfection. He believed that the dominance and victorious character of the Aryans must be displayed. Friedlander noted that ironically, Hitler was not victorious in the war and therefore the so called perfect dominance of his master race, which had already cost the lives of millions of people, “seemed to be nothing but an imagination” (316).
The case for being a pacifist “There are many causes I would die for. There is not a single cause I would kill for.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “First, it must be emphasized that nonviolent resistance is not a method for cowards; it does resist. If one uses this method because he is afraid or merely because he lacks the instruments of violence, he is not truly nonviolent…. A second basic fact that characterizes nonviolence is that it does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship and understanding….The end is redemption and reconciliation. The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, while the aftermath of violence is tragic bitterness.” Martin Luther King, Jr Nowadays, pacifism is not popular.
