Freedom Of Expression - Our First Amendment Rights Are Threatened - 1,158 words
What is art? Can it be defined in any single painting, or sculpture? Is it even something that can be seen, or does it have to be experienced? The term "art" is so vague that it can be applied to almost anything, really. Mostly, however, art should be that which frees our imagination. It connects our conscious with our subconscious, putting into a visual form what we feel and think. It allows us to explore our inner self and fill that urge to understand our minds and our universe. Art helps us to see beyond the ordinary, to see what is in our hearts without being blinded by reality. When an artist creates a painting, it is not to create a picture; it is to create a feeling or mood. The purpo ...

Obscenity, Blasphemy, And Freedom Of Expression - 1,970 words

Obscenity, Blasphemy, And Freedom Of Expression - 1,933 words
... Therefore this provision offers justification for the publication of articles that are obscene and thus allows more scope for expression. There has consequently been a fall in prosecutions, with pornographic production becoming increasingly productive and their products ever more odious. Similarly, by contrast to the prosecution initiated against the novel Last exit to Brooklyn, now books such as American Psycho, which depicts explicit sexual violence, are being published without risk of legal action. It has been recognised that sociological or ethical merit may justify publishing such an obscene book, due to the potential benefit to society as a whole in having such matter canvassed. Ho ...

Was America A Free Society In The 1920s - 1,215 words
Was America really a free society in the 1920's? Freedom covers many aspects of life : human rights, religious freedom, economic freedom, freedom of expression and political freedom. In America in the 1920's there was an illusion of freedom - but some people were more free than others and this depended on race, social class and political belief. There was a big divide between rich and poor and this was further exagerrated by the divide between the urban and rural populations. The smaller farmers suffered from low income. The government did nothing to help, as it was Republican and believed in not interfering with American peoples lives. This ties in with the idea of economic freedom - the ru ...

Cliques are an obvious part of every school across the nation. Whether the words, jock, preppie, skater, or goodie-goodie, are brought to mind, almost everyone thinks of their high school and how distinguished the groups were back then.

Stephen Lacy, acting director of Michigan State University's School of Journalism in East Lansing said through the coverage of the Kennedy tragedy, he saw, "a bigger disconnect between the press and the public. It was a bit of overkill, especially on television." He went on to say that "The media have not quite realized that overplaying does not help their credibility, but continues to show examples of the news industry exploiting a tragedy in a push to stem a 20-year slide in ratings, readers, and credibility ...

School Uniforms A Cheap Educational Reform Or Purely Effective - 1,522 words
Throughout the history of dress codes in school, many districts have toyed with the issue or whether school uniforms would create a more unified educational environment or perhaps only cause chaos and complaint. As a graduating senior, I do not believe school uniforms will have any effect on the unity or safety of our school, they would only cause problems. I feel that there are several alternatives to achieving the so-called benefits of wearing school uniforms without wearing them at all. It is understandable that in school districts without uniforms, it is the duty of school authorities to enforce a dress code within schools. Courts have generally upheld the attempts of school authorities ...

Rubin V Coors Brewing Co - 1,193 words
CASE CITATION: Rubin v. Coors Brewing Co. (514 US 476), 1995 The rules and principals of commercial law are of ancient origin. Throughout the centuries merchants engaged in trade and commerce have recognized customs and usages which regulate and control their conduct. Gradually over the years a body of law developed (Robert & Corley, 312) Commercial speech arose in 1942 when the Supreme Court announced that the First Amendment does not protect it. As the years went on, on the Bicentennial of our Republic, the Courts position was reversed and they declared that the First Amendment protects commercial speech. But they court did say that commercial speech should receive less protection then non ...

Children And The Internet - 1,807 words
Although the U.S. created the Internet in the 1960s as a communications tool for the military, it was not until after the government opened it to the public in the late 1980s that the Internet became a unique communications phenomenon.

An Argument Against Burning The American Flag - 349 words
Having been called a bleeding heart leberal several times in my life, this is one issure that you could not accuse me of being wishy-washy about. The needs to be a constitutional amendment outlawing he burning of the Flag of the United States of America. In my mind, this is no debating this issue. Recently, once again, Congress has voted down a constitional amendment that would have favored fedeal criminal penalties for the descreation of the American Flag. There is a feeble arguemnt that making it illegal to burn our flag would be setting a dangerous precedent with regards to placing unacceptable limits on free speech. This would not be possible if you defined this law quite specifically, f ...
