Right Of Revolution - 571 words
As John Locke believed, I too believe the right of revolution has but one meaning and that is; that the people in a society have the right to choose who will represent them in government. They have the right to elect another government or leader when the one originally in control is not doing what is in the peoples best interest. We call this right democracy. A recent example which best illustrates this is the election in Serbia where President Slobodan Milosevic has allegedly lost the election but is refusing to turn over power to the newly elected official, violating every principle of the right of revolution or democratic selection process. In order to fully understand what is happening w ...

Robeson, alongside Robinson, stated (something to the effect) that, it would be unthinkable for black Americans to fight in a war against Russia because blacks were treated better in Russia than they were in the United States (Scott 227). In retaliation, the House Un-American Activities Committee assembled hearings in which they subpoenaed other prominent African Americans to testify about Robesons statement. The first one they called was Jackie Robinson. Not eager to testify, but knowing full well that refusing to cooperate with the HUAC might result in the termination of his athletic career, Jackie, with encouragement by the Dodger organization, agree ...

... eelings. So he went through a song (which, by the way, is much more musically interesting and educational than the ones on Barney) where he weighed all the fun he had with his friend against the momentary pleasure of a cookie, and decided that he would rather give the cookie to his friend. On Barney, even if the situation came up (which it clearly wouldn't, because there are always enough treats to go around), they would have just smiled and immediately broken the cookie in half. Well, from Cookie Monster, they learn that those feelings of selfishness are perfectly normal (why do you think so many of the Muppets are "monsters"? Children are very afraid of their "bad" emotions), that even ...

Toms Of Maine Company - 370 words
Pre-modern, modern, and post-modern leadership qualities are present in the New York Times article entitled, God and Toothpaste. Tom Chappell, the C.E.O. and co-founder of Toms of Maine, which produces personal-hygiene items also, preaches to be an environmentally safe company with the help of God. Tom Chappell shows pre-modern leadership by being master and doing things such as closing the company to gather at an off-site location to discuss the companys commitment to the environment. It shows a very authoritarian role by Tom when he closes the plant, at a cost of more than $100,000 to insure that everyone is present. He shows to be a ruler by governing and ruling over the people by making ...

Democratice Partys - 1,915 words
Republic (government) (Latin res publica, literally "the public thing"), form of state based on the concept that sovereignty resides in the people, who delegate the power to rule in their behalf to elected representatives and officials. In practice, however, this concept has been variously stretched, distorted, and corrupted, making any precise definition of the term republic difficult. It is important, to begin with, to distinguish between a republic and a democracy. In the theoretical republican state, where the government expresses the will of the people who have chosen it, republic and democracy may be identical (there are also democratic monarchies). Historical republics, however, have ...

Quest For Leadership - 717 words
Two unassociated books, Lord of the Flies and Animal Farm, come together in a certain way to show the quest for leadership among humans. George Orwell, author of Animal Farm, and William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, explains quite well in these books how human kind destroys itself to be above everything else. Each story has its own original leader, a second designated realistic leader, and its final monarchist leader. In Lord of the Flies the original leader is possibly the pilot or really any adult figure that once controlled them. The second designated realistic leader is Ralph, who is picked as leader because of his instant leadership actions. Finally comes the monarchist leaders ...

Freedom Isn't Free - 1,218 words
I feel inspired and patriotic every time I see a cars back bumper sticker featuring an American flag stating, Freedom Isnt Free! The moral clarity of those words rings as true as the Liberty Bell. Those Americans that do not fathom the significance of the motto Freedom Isnt Free suffer from the very problematic victim/slave mentality, which ultimately will become a future reality should more citizens not heed the simple message the sage language conveys. Yes it indeed bears repeating, Freedom Is Not Free! Its acquisition from King Georges England involved struggle, its maintenance throughout the first two and a quarter centuries of our Great Republic required sacrifice and its continuation d ...

Animal Farm Compared To The Russian Revolution - 1,156 words
Education is not as prominent in the book as during the Russian Revolution. In the book, education is mentioned when Snowball finds old spelling books, once belonging to Mr. Jones.

Some of the not so intelligent animals find this quite taxing, whereas the pigs being the most intelligent, learn the fastest. Snowball is the most interested in educating the animals, and the well being of the other animals on the farm. Just as Trotsky was intent in educating the Russian people, and their well being during the Revolution. Napoleon took no interest in Snowballs committees. He said that ...

Animalism Vs Marxism In Animal Farm - 1,735 words
Introduction Long before the invention of the television or telephone, much less the computer, people had to communicate by word of mouth or written documents. It was not a peculiar happening for a critic of religious, political, or economical affairs to write his opinions in an allegorical and sometimes satirical fashion. Public awareness to many social wrongs has long been fed by such writings. In 1944, even after the modern means of communication had arrived, George Orwell, an Englishman, expressed his concern that Socialism had taken a sharp downfall under the reign of Russias implement of communism. Orwell was inspired to write Animal Farm in response to his participation in the Russian ...

Jewish Involvement In Shaping American Immigration Policy, 1881- 1965: A Historical Review - 2,777 words
This paper discusses Jewish involvement in shaping United States immigration policy. In addition to a periodic interest in fostering the immigration of co- religionists as a result of anti- Semitic movements, Jews have an interest in opposing the establishment of ethnically and culturally homogeneous societies in which they reside as minorities. Jews have been at the forefront in supporting movements aimed at altering the ethnic status quo in the United States in favor of immigration of non- European peoples. These activities have involved leadership in Congress, organizing and funding anti- restrictionist groups composed of Jews and gentiles, and originating intellectual movements opposed t ...

... I will never forget. When my fish neared the boat, I felt more energized than I had when the fish first struck. At my fathers command, I netted the fish and hauled it into the bottom of the boat. I was nearly bursting with exhilaration. Released from the net, the fish dropped to the bottom of the boat with a hollow thud, and my jaw dropped with it. I stared in complete horror at the violently thrashing fish which was now at my feet. Within minutes, all of the fishs vibrance, color and life had vanished. Instead, came blood. Lots of blood. It sprayed from its mouth. It sprayed from its gills. Shortly, the boat was coated with the red life blood of the mahi-mahi. It now lay twitching help ...

Reflection On The Values And Importance Of Mothers - 895 words
From time to time I pause and remember one who some years ago emptied my nest as he left home to begin his transition from being my little boy to becoming a man. From Oklahoma to Alaska, there is, today, quite a span of geographic distance between us. Although I do miss him, I feel, with his work and family commitments, a respect for him, when he chooses to devote his time to those near and dear to him. I am grateful for the words in Ecclesiastes 3: To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven. As I grow older, I find I am ever so thankful for the memories of my sons growing up I hold in my heart. It wasnt always easy; but then, life isnt always easy e ...
