Anti- terrorist and de-radicalization programs are designed to help people with radical thoughts to think otherwise. So many cases have proved that these programs will work and I believe so too. I hope that one day people wont have to struggle with this and it is eliminated , so our world could be a completely different world, a safer world and America as well to live
War in the Middle East “Fostering freedom will help end war because people who participate in their own government are less likely to go to war” (Gerdes 190). As long as man is on the Earth there will be some sort of conflict. People have different views, and that has been that way forever. Terrorism exists today because some people have their beliefs and do not want them to be changed. Helping these countries obtain freedom with a democratic government will give them a voice and reduce terrorism.
As people we should have the freedom to think and believe whatever we want, no one else should be able to tell you that what you think and believe is wrong or right in a sense that would make it illegal to believe that. In America this law is not implied and that is the reason that people from all different countries risk their lives to come to America. They want a new start where they can be themselves and believe what they want, the opposite of what this law/idea will do when implied. This is one of the reasons America is considered one of the greatest countries to live in.
On the other hand, people are free to believe and think what they would like. Given the location of Hillsboro, and the time period this story took place, customs were very different and people seemed much more radical. In today’s day and age, anyone is free to think what he or she wants and practice what he or she likes. No one should be forced to think certain ways or be punished for thinking differently. Thankfully, this is the direction our country and other countries around the world are starting to move towards but is still an issue at
On one side you have people like Patrick Reinsborough who is an Organizer of Direct Action Against the War. Patrick and others following in his path believe the government is out of control and states “the goal is to impose real economic, social, and financial costs until we stop the war.” On the other hand we have members of organizations like Win Without War who have also signed the civil disobedience pledge but agree on not disrupting daily routines. These members
By this time, slavery is a very hotly debated issue in America, even eventually leading to the Civil War. Thoreau obviously takes the position against slavery and tries to use his writing to try and convince the citizens of America to stand up against slavery and the laws that protect it. Thoreau often writes of the injustice that the government displays towards its people. For example, Thoreau writes, “Why does it not encourage its citizens to be on the alert to point out its faults, and do better than it would have them?” (184). Thoreau’s purpose is to convince the citizens of America to not follow the majority, but do what is felt to be morally right.
On the political side, everyone is free to reject, to revolute and simply to say no. Another aspect of freedom which the American Dream stresses is the freedom of religion as the early founders of the American society have suffered a lot from religious abuse. Freedom of religious beliefs is a basic right for everyone, and any difference in religion cannot be a reason for difference in the gained rights in society. As the American Dream has given great value to the individual, the freedom of expressing person’s opinion and thoughts has imposed itself. Individualism that the American Dream has believed in has made people believe that as they are free individuals everyone should have an opinion and it must at least be heard and respected.
Martin Luther King, one of the most well known civil rights leaders in America, believed that some laws during his lifetime were unjust in nature and were acceptable to ignore based on ones conscience. Henry David Thoreau also believed that unjust laws were to be resisted or ignored. While Thoreau was the first American to define and use civil disobedience as a means of protest, King expanded upon it in his letter from Birmingham jail, implementing nonviolence and practical application into the traditional American protest. Henry David Thoreau believed that, “That government is best, which governs least.” Also, while Thoreau had wished for no government, he acknowledged the fact that it was logically impossible and that the government only exists because the people allow it to exist; Thoreau states, “The government does not keep the country free. It does not settle the west.
I am an independent person, America relies on other countries for resources. I won’t change no matter what happens to America. If America changes, I don’t change. Yesterday I bought a new shirt, but I don’t think America would fit in it. America has several different sub-cultures and regions, I have one solid personality.
For example, he states that Islam is a religion firmly rooted in the traditions of Jewish and Christian Scriptures or explains how “Jihad” is originally meant only for defensive purposes. Similarly, How to Win A Cosmic War: Globalization, and the End of the War on Terror, another work by Reza Aslan he explains the realities of many muslims and fundamentalists have come to view the problems in their life, their analytical process and consequently their ideological assumptions. Here also Aslan distinguishes groups like “Hamas” that have political adjectives unlike, the jihadist group “al-Quaida” which are often taught to have the same objectives. The point is clear, if nations want to learn to live with each other 2 without having to go to war they have to, at least understand each other. Another overlapping theme, is challenging the concept that the worlds grievances are based on larger issues like religion as in, “Clash of Civilizations Theory” or taking part in the “Cosmic War” rhetoric.
