White in Why the Gasoline Engine isn’t going away anytime soon; argue in a perspective that these issues are viewed at by society wrong. Although society presents energy independence as a must, Bryce explains how it is not desirable to become energy independent nor is it even possible. White explains that the gasoline engine is far from its last day. These two experts argue that the ignorance of society is keeping the reality of these issues absent. Bryce and White also touch on how the cost of these issues will keep them from succeeding anytime soon.
I believe there is correlation between performance and motivation x ability, but I think another factor has to be considered as well. In order to achieve peak performance you need to add opportunity or environmental factors. You certainly need the desire and commitment first as well as the ability, but without the opportunity to achieve or someone to give you a chance to perform you will not achieve your peak performance level. A few examples come to mind. A real estate agent can have motivation x ability, but the economic collapse of the housing market is going to inhibit that person’s peak performance by no fault of their own.
Therefore the source suggests that Henry’s inability to enforce the ‘newly-imposed head tax’ contributed not only to a lack of funds for wars with France, but also his failure to combat the tax boycott ‘gave [James IV] hope of undertaking something’. Source 2 confirms what is being said in source 1 as it demonstrates that the threat was real, accounting how James did actually invade, taking advantage of Henry's absence, which confirms the suspicions of the Privy Council in source 1. Source 1 also implies that Henry may have had to abandon any plans made to invade France due to the possible Scottish invasion, 'against King Henry in his absence'. Yet the situation was double edged sword; if Henry chose to ignore the potential threat of a Scottish invasion and stayed to campaign in France, he risked the former actually coming true. If however, he decided to return to England in order to discourage James IV from attacking, he would lose progress in France.
According to the authors: “It is well and good to opine or theorize about a subject, as humankind is wont to do, but when moral posturing is replaced by an honest assessment of the data, the result is often a new, surprising insight.” The research in Freakonomics shows that economic and social issues that often difficult, but not impossible, to quantify. One of the themes of this book is a conformist, that wisdom is often wrong. In Chapter Three, Levitt and Dubner quite from economist and diplomat John Kenneth Galbraith, who states that social behavior is complex and “to comprehend character is mentally tiring.” So, according to Galbraith, conformist mind must be a simple, useful, happy, calming, though not necessarily true. Since then, the author, address, and drive on, the drug dealer-related conformist mind, the author gives an interesting and simple example of the costs and profits of a firm. J.T’s Black disciples profits come from seal of drug, gang payments, and blackmail.
Conservatives have a pessimistic view of human nature, some would even agree with Hobbes view that the desire for “power after power” is the primary human urge. Two we are intellectually imperfect conservatives traditionally believe that the world is simply too complicated for human reason to fully grasp this leads them to trust in tradition as it is “Tried and tested” and it also explains there argument for letting society grow organically as conservatives would prefer to trust in nature then our own rationality this contrasts with both socialism and liberalism. Finally they believe we are psychologically imperfect conservatives believe we are security seeking, we fear isolation and instability and desire the security and belonging of “knowing are place” this is used as the argument for conservatives supporting social order as they accept Hobbes theory of a “Social contract” that individuals are willing to sacrifice liberty for the cause of social order. It is clear that traditionally conservatives strongly believed in human imperfection but too what extent the different strands of conservatism support this core principle differs. Strands that believe in the Human imperfection completely are traditional conservatives, authoritarian conservatives and paternalistic
Occupy Wall Street’s Main goal is unknown, however; some of their goals include bank reform, more and better jobs, economic justice, and getting money out of politics. While the goals for their issues may be different, both movements are focused on money, politics, and how our tax dollars are being spent. While the Tea Party movement has turned into a political party, the occupy Wall Street movement is saying they do not want to be associated with any political parties. Moreover from the air, they both look alike, in that there is anger, they are demanding to be heard, and they have legitimate concerns said former Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, whose 2010 re-election bid was hindered by the Tea Party opposing him. Both the tea party and occupy Wall Street movements have been dismissed as not being very important.
It seems that he has his own principles that he puts before the interests. Obama can only lead America to its damnation and not otherwise and he has probably already signed himself in as one term president. The decisions he makes about America are all wrong for America even when the policies are good. This is like putting the card before the horse but still getting the wrong horse into the harness. Generally, Obama is bad for America and so is his presidency.
We also make it unattractive for foreign corporations to invest in the United States. Some budget observers believe that tax reform could be the key to long term fiscal compromise. Instead, some of these extra dimensions could make it the enemy. The devil is always in the details. Tax reform teems with details.
Both Presidents appear to have been wrongly impeached. Johnson was attempting to prove a point that the Tenure of Office Act was unconstitutional and should be repealed. On the other hand, President Clinton’s impeachment appeared to be about rivalry. The Clinton trial was heavily inconsistent; “facts” were tainted by political bias and the charge did not meet any of the constitutional standards to cause impeachment nor removal. Although Clinton’s scandal was unprofessional, it was not a great enough cause for impeachment.
Humans’ personalities and way of life is greatly influenced by our moral convictions so to have discussion about how humans should live together without taking into consideration what shapes us, is not only a mistake, but it is impossible. Sandel is thus claiming that what current democracy is attempting to do is impossible and causes a paradox which creates unrest within the people. He suggests this is fixed by encouraging open deliberation as a part of the political process. What causes this deliberation to be open is that there is discussion about
