This war, unfortunately, is not easily defined, has no obvious battle ground, and has an indefinite duration. Because of the sporadic nature of the war on terror, the government would not be justified and some actions are causing controversy. Current definitions of terrorism fail to capture the magnitude of the problem both locally and worldwide and the effect of the problem affects some communities more than others. The burden of using physical descriptions to look for terrorists has fallen on Muslims or Middle Easterners because the September 11 hijackers were of Middle Eastern descent. Most Americans were opposed to racial profiling before September 11.
There are no clear similarities between different types of terrorists and they are certainly not all empowered by political reasons. At one point, due to the infamous September 11 terrorist attacks that left the modern world reeling with shock and gripped by anxiety, many people had the stereotype that a terrorist would have brown skin and follow the Islamic faith. The many bombings by Islamic groups in the recent decade has led to stereotype becoming more negative and further solidifies the stigma that the word carries. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force and
Wills’ claims that the federal government's chief law enforcement official might need a refresher course on federal law pertaining to legal immigrants. Some American legislators have taken up the position that prohibiting bilingual ballots would be racist. However, evidence shows that millions of other American citizens feel that prohibiting the bilingual ballot is a step in the right direction. Wills’ begins his article with a political anecdote quoted by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. When he was asked whether he would favor the prohibition of the bilingual ballot, he simply stated, “Of course not.” Wills’ continues in the next section stating that our national identity and our federal laws are being weakened by immigration that is influenced by these bilingual ballots.
I haven’t seen a film like this that criticizes the government only with facts and criticize what the government did wrong and should change. I really enjoyed watching the film but the one thing that bothered me was that it had too many opposing views against U.S.A. and President Bush. Every criticism did have good evidence behind it and made some sense but it looked as if the
History Controlled Assessment. Why has 9/11 had a lasting significance on the fight against terrorism? In the past we have always had a problem with terrorism; There have been bombings in many different countries like Kenya, Beirut, Lebanon, Iran and Tanzania. These bombings happened because the US positioned troops out in the countries near holy sites and embassies for protection but some people didn’t like it, like Osama Bin Laden, and decided to act on it resulting in the attack of 911. Another act of terrorism was the ‘Klu Klux Klan’ who were a group of white people who did not agree with the slave trade being abolished so they would commit crimes (like burning down buildings and rioting) and would harm people who agreed with slaves being freed.
Milgram devised his psychological study to answer the popular question at that particular time: "Could it be that Eichmann and his million accomplices in the Holocaust were just following orders? Could we call them all accomplices? " The experiments have been repeated many times in the following years with consistent results within differing societies, although not with the same percentages around the globe.  The experiments were also controversial and considered by some scientists to be unethical and physically or psychologically abusive. Psychologist Diana Baumrind considered the experiment "harmful because it may cause permanent psychological damage and cause people to be less trusting in the future.
We also are often discriminated in public places. Muslims nowadays are afraid to say they’re Muslims because of all the hate they will get. I myself was bullied, and one term they used was for me blowing up buildings and me being a terrorist. Just like how the blacks were discriminated, it is our turn in the 21st century. The media blamed us for the 9/11 attacks, yet it wasn’t us.
Academic dishonesty, with internet plagiarism as of the most common forms, is a concern on college and university’s campuses more than ever before. Within the past few years, high tech cheating is gradually replacing the simple copy, cut, paste method. Students have become more tech savvy, and online instructional cheating videos, detailing clever methods to cheat, are populating the internet daily (Jones, D. 2011.). According to many studies, in between 80 and 95 percent of high school students admitted to cheating at least once in the past year and 75 percent admitted to cheating four or more times.
They often neglect key local and state developments to focus on national news that will attract more people (Murray). Some critics argue that they harm the youth because the youth naively relies on them as a substitute for the news (Murray). Yet this argument lacks merit because a recent CNN study has revealed that The Daily Show viewers “were better versed in 2008 election issues than citizens who frequently turned to traditional mediums, such as newspapers and TV news stations, for the latest in current events
1. Give an outline of the different views on whistleblowing presented in the texts. In the article “The NSA Leaker: Traitor or Hero?” by Teresa Welsh from US News & World Report website in June 11, 2013 it is discussed whether Edward Snowden, who leaked secret NSA surveillance programs, should be punished or applauded for being a whistleblower and bringing new information to the world. The article balances between thinking of the leaking as an act of betrayal and an act that should be rewarded. Some people believe that the Americans are now at risk and have lost their protection from terrorist threats while others believe that the Americans’ right to privacy and freedom are lost.
