By doing so the government would intrude on students' creativity and learning process, would set illusive restraints on racist behavior, and undermine the Constitution at whole. To begin, government censorship and the student learning process are an incompatible combination. In any efforts the government might make to protect students from bad ideas, the students are deprived of the right to make up their own minds and form opinions. They are also deprived of
Finally Mr. Lukianoff established his credentials as an expert in the field of the violation of rights at schools. Mr. Lukianoff cites several examples of students’ rights being violated at colleges across the country including time when students were forbidden from putting up their political views in the form of a poster on their door and a free-speech zone which included a whole 0.1 percent of the University of Cincinnati. Mr. Lukianoff also mentions counterarguments such as pointing out that the speech codes are, “intended to enforce civility” but Mr. Lukianoff undercuts this argument by telling of how the speech codes “often backfire, suppressing free expression”. Mr. Lukianoff also calls upon the expertice of another person, namely Harry R. Lewis, a former dean of Harvard College who said on the subject of Harvard College’s oath that incoming freshmen were pressured to sign, that is was “unwise, and sets a terrible precedent”. Mr. Lukianoff’s argument clearly has a sufficient plethora of logos.
The Language Police: CH 4 In chapter 4 of Diane Ravitch’s, The Language Police, she explains how political pressure groups have imposed censorship on textbook publishers. Publishing companies do not only exclude questions that are believed to be biased, but exclude questions that exemplify any form of controversy. The book states, “It is better to be bland than to be controversial” (Ravitch). Workers of publishing companies go on to say that anything that might make a student uncomfortable should be left out of the question. History is going to make people uncomfortable no matter what.
The Language Police Throughout “The Language Police,” the angered author, Diane Ravitch, speaks her mind on the issue of censorship. Censorship shelters students from the real world and gives them a false sense of reality. Ravitch believes that students are being censored to such an extreme that their freedom is being limited. The goal of the language police is not just to stop us from using objectionable words but to stop us from having objectionable thoughts (Ravitch 158). The language police are restricting what students learn by removing anything that may appear controversial.
It is dangerous and people need to take it seriously. By not finding better ways to prosecute DUI’s more people will continue to be killed. 6) There is no further information I want the Professor to know about this essay. Michael St.John Professor Jodie Baeyens ENGL 102 Effectiveness in Writing June 5, 2012 Difficulty of DUI Cases Driving under the influence (DUI) is a major problem in the U.S. DUIs are dangerous selfish acts that affect all social classes and ethnic groups. DUI’s happen when a person has no regard for the rules or regulations of their state or the safety and well being of fellow citizens.
In my personal opinion, it’s their own immaturity and utter lack of respect for the school and themselves. As a class, and as a school, I believe that these delinquents should be brought down with the most self-reflective castigations. I do not believe we should ostracize these miscreants, but instead allow them to realize their own misdeeds and to hopefully become a more self-aware and proactive human
The reason why is because during the On-to-Ottawa trek workers were unhappy with their critical conditions and when the workers leaders made it to the PM in Ottawa they got accused of being terrorists and communists. The second reason is that the terrorist group known as the FLQ used terrorism to try to attempt separatism during the October Crisis .The government imposed the war measures act which affected the citizens of Quebec. It is believed that other measures could have been used to resolve this problem. Finally the Parti Quebecois’s decision to pass bill 101 was unjustified to the English speaking Canadians. It showed that Quebec wants to have no relations with the rest of
A more recent study suggests that changes to Canada’s gun control law have had an effect on accidental firearm death rates, particularly in males. (Boyd, p. 35) Criminologists are sure that gun control must exist and be rather strict to avoid countless victims. Certainly, rate of crime must be regulated through many tools : penalties, fines, confiscation but gun control plays the supreme role. I deem Canadian gun control system should not be changed, for its work is an effecient one. I think that several amendments should be addopted.
To back up her argument about his intentions, she used excerpts from his E-mail correspondence with a like-minded young man in Canada. E-mail is normally personal communication, and so it is harder to classify as a "threat" in the traditional sense of something communicated to the target, but her own argument is that the story itself was a threat and an instance of violence. (The appeals court dismissed the case on technical grounds mostly relating to the specificity of the threat.) It is clear that this story and others that Mr. Baker had been composing were reports of intended violence. It is a good concrete example of MacKinnon's general thesis: that pornography by its nature is violent,
