Everybody has different values. So with that in mind, conflict will occur when individuals or nations have a lack of acceptance and understanding of these different values. Conflicts with differing interests occur when individuals or nations combat for their personal or nation goals as a whole, often ignoring the organizational goals and well-being, or other nation’s goals and well-being. Scarce resources can cause a lot of conflict. Especially between two countries.
The continued power grab will destroy the capitalist system shackling the limbs of the free market. The regulation imposed creates factions limiting the ease of market entry. The environment that our American business calls home must remain competitive assuring quality goods to consumers while encouraging technological advancements. The path our federal government is currently on is a path of non-democratic regulation that is a threat to the growth and prosperity of our country. It is simply a matter of the true meaning of the Constitution, specifically the commerce clause that must be addressed.
Recently Japanese Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi created headlines by saying, “achieving world-class excellence demands that all Japanese acquire a working knowledge of English.” (Masci, N.p) He not only went on to say that English should be the nation’s official second language but also suggested the alternative was to be left behind in the global race to prosperity. (Masci,N.p) So while other countries are clearly embracing English as a necessary language of the future, the United States continues to embrace multiple languages and, in fact, encourages it. In a recent article by Joe Castaldo, he states that German and Japanese based companies choose English as a primary language of their business and employees. (Castaldo, N.p) In fact, deviating from the “English Only” policy has severe consequences. (Castaldo, N.p) The article concludes that companies with global aspirations have no choice but to use English as the language of business.
The British colonies wanted independence from Great Britain due to a number of practices that they felt were unfair; high taxes and lack of government representation were the most important. The four key ideals discussed are: equality, unalienable rights, consent of the governed, and the right to alter and abolish government. While they are all very important to the founding of this country, unalienable rights is the most important because without life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, the other three key ideals are not meaningful to the future of this young nation. Equality of men and women is extremely important even in American society in recent times. It is the reason that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his life to make sure that African-Americans would have the very same rights as any other American citizen.
Our country prides itself on encouraging its citizens to better themselves through education. (P) While its priority has been high school graduation, many jobs now require college degrees, making higher education more important than ever. While I understand that every American should be expected to sacrifice during this hard time, just as we were in World War II, I feel that this particular sacrifice would put our country in an even worse state. (S) Our work force will not be prepared to handle nor understand the advancements that we have strived so hard to achieve. College is made to prepare students with the newest information possible, so that we can constantly be improving ourselves and be able continue to compete with the world’s leading nations.
Questioning authority can have a major effect on society, and can change it for the better. Although it is sometimes easier to just follow convention, the questioning of authority can have powerful repercussions, evident in the Declaration of independence, the Magna Carta and the Women’s Suffrage Movement. The Declaration of Independence shows that our founding fathers were frustrated with the English Monarchy, as the monarchy was unfairly taxing them and housing English troops against their will. The founding fathers could have just waited for the taxes to blow over, but they believed that if they questioned the authority of King George III, it would make the American society stronger and better. The Declaration of Independence showed that
It said that “Vargas is incredibly brave to risk everything he has accomplished in this country in order tell the truth and to shine yet another but still much needed light on the pressing need for comprehensive immigration reform in this country” (O’Connor 388-389). This quote mean that because he is an immigrant doesn’t mean he stop reaching his American dream striving to what he want to become that’s why without people like him our country will be poorer. Esther Cepeda believes that Jose Vargas is in wrong doing for being an undocumented. It say in her essay “it’s almost impossible to not be deeply disturbed by self-promotion disguised as sacrifice, the blatant criminal activity and distasteful comparison to the experiences of African American in their struggle for equality” (Cepeda 391). This quote is trying to say is that there are Americans with the struggle that José Vargas has that didn’t get the same equality that he has.

Although British had the victorious win, fighting this war was very expensive. The British wished to cover the cost of the war. The British believed that as they had made America secure and safe, the Americans should bear some of the costs of achieving this security. As a result of this, they enforced Navigation Act and the costs associated with the two new taxes led to protests. A newly-formed Stamp Act Congress formed by delegates from nine colonies objected the British ideas based on the principle of “no taxation without representation.” This was the
Illegal votes minimize citizen’s rights in the Constitution and it undermines our democracy that was established and preached by the founding fathers; therefore a solution for this loophole should be quickly tied and these actions no longer tolerable or allowed under the 14th amendment. As citizens of the US, we have a right stated in the 1st amendment to be able to express our opinions; our values and beliefs should be directly represented through the voting process. Although future elections are predicted to be heavily influenced by this growing minority population, politicians are beginning to apprehend the negative brunt illegal immigration has bestowed upon our country as this could be a small factor in the current struggling economy. Congressman Tom Tancredo has vast prospective ideas on how to reform our immigration system. By working across the aisle a feasible and successful solution to the straining liability and encumbrances may be obtained to make our country incorrupt and hospitable to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness to the citizens of the United State of
