Could The Un Be A World Government? - 1,521 words
The vision of a unified world, freed from the anarchy of tribalistic strife among organised fragments of the human race and possessed of a government able to disperse justice and maintain order among all men, had long captured the prophetic imagination of a philosophers and poets. Yes, the UN can be a world government although it is my opinion that it would be very improbable it would happen at least in the near future for a variety of reasons. They include the fact that many if not most of the states making up the UN would not be willing to hand over their sovereignty to a world body, according to realists. It is a well-known fact that the overwhelming majority of states would put what they ...

In The Year 2020 - 701 words

Government changes with the times. By the year 2020, with so many world powers, there in turn will be a more prominent world government system.

This will make sure that the more powerful countries would not take advantage of the weaker ones. This global government will make laws, s ...

The Effects Of Romes Expansion - 2,611 words
Expansion overseas gave Rome the opportunity to strengthen its empire by war; But, as a drawback it resulted in the breakdown of the Republic, as well as its Empire. Expansion Overseas made Rome a mighty empire for a short period of time, until both the Empire and the republic became unstable and eventually broke down. Hooker, author of Roman History in 1996 states: Roman history begins in a small village in central Italy; this unassuming village would grow into a small metropolis, conquer and control all of Italy, southern Europe, the Middle East, and Egypt, and find itself, by the start of what no other people had managed before: the ruled the entire world under a single administration for ...

Gun Laws - 5,640 words
... h emotion or introspection but require a level of conscious cognition to understand. 3/28/98 Dave Workman Bravo for John Lott's revealing research on the impact that concealed carry laws are having on crime. That such laws have been passed in 31 states, coinciding with passage of "Three Strikes" and "Hard Time for Armed Crime" legislation, is the real reason we are seeing a decline in reported violent crime. Those who have advocated restrictive gun control over the years, and other intrusions on the rights of individual citizens, are now being shown as the liars they've always been. In the wake of the Arkansas tragedy, I remain more firmly convinced than ever that gun control advocates ...

The question is how were going to facilitate those matters, whether its going to be done with a thousand police men and submachine guns, or whether its going to be in a context where its allowed by white people. (41) Regardless of the means, RAGE will be heard. As Carmichael points out, white resistance, in most cases, will determine where and to what extent rage will lead. The struggle for social power between white and black America was brought to a head during the Civil Rights Era. Williams explains, The oppressors heart i ...

Einstien - 1,075 words
Albert Einstein, a German-American phycist, gave so much to this country. Einstein was born in Ulm on March 14, 1879, and spent his youth in Munich, where his family owned a small shop that manufactured electric machinery. He died in Princeton, April 18, 1955. When repeated business failure led the family to leave Germany for Milan, Italy, Einstein, who was then 15 years old, withdrew from the schools of Munich. He stayed a year with his parents in Milan, then left to finish secondary school in Arrau, Switzerland, and entered the Swiss National Polytechnic in Zrich. Again the schools here didn't satisfy Einstein. He often cut classes and used the time to study physics on his own or to play v ...

Government Regulatory I Tervention In Canadian Business - 818 words
Government Regulatory Intervention in Canadian Business It is possible that Canada may be approaching the critical level where the economy is being strangled; where enterprise is re-strained and where entrepreneurship is stifled. But Canada could not dishevel itself that easily. Canadian business will not fall because it doesn't like a few rules. Canadian business will realize that Government regulations have a positive and effective role in society and should be commended, and not scrutinized. Public choice theory explains that the Canadian Government will always strive for pay, perks, and power, and there may not be much Canadians can do about changing the incentive structure of the regula ...

International Politics - 1,047 words
Much of written history displays the conquests of the most powerful nations over less powerful ones. This has led to ever-changing territories as nations have been conquered or have conquered others and the most powerful nations or alliances of nations hold the ultimate authority. Especially in the past century, however, there has not been one major world power but many powerful nation-states capable of dominating the smaller nation-states around them. Before World War One, a balance of power (in Europe at least) system kept nations from unleashing their power and dominance on less powerful nations. As this system collapsed after the war, the League of Nations was set up as a forum to end di ...

How Useful Is The Concept Of Elite To The Distribtion Of Power - 2,519 words
Sociology Essay How useful is the concept of elite for understanding the distribution of power in either Britain or the United States? In America perhaps only race is a more sensitive subject than the way we sort ourselves out in the struggle for success. The eminent sociologist Robert Merton calls it the structure of opportunity. In the understanding of the usefulness of the term elite, there are some common historical variables, which must be looked at in order to appreciate the power organisms at work even in American society, and how from the days of Thomas Jefferson to the era of Newt Gingrich, the assumption of superiority is an undercurrent in American life and society. In this essay ...

Impoverished Nations - 1,603 words
The purpose of this essay is to discuss the differences between Third World and UK hunger from a social scientists perspective. Social scientists, when looking at a wide issue such as hunger, tend to analyse thoroughly the underlying and triggering factors in each World, to come to an accurate understanding. Contrasts can be drawn between the reasons for hunger in the UK and third World. First of all, the Third and First Worlds need to be defined so that false assumptions are not made which would distort the facts. The Third World consists of the underdeveloped and developing countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. The First World contains all the industrialised and capitalist nations o ...

What's At Stake In The 2000 Presidential Election - 1,820 words
This is perhaps the most important election of our time. Looking at it pragmatically, we only have two viable choices: Bush or Gore. As someone who is apparently concerned about environmental issues, abortion issues, and economic issues the choice between the two should be obvious -al gore In addition a simple fact is Nader will not be elected president in November gore in effect a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush. Gore may offer him a cabinet position to drop out of the race. As for the U.S. Supreme Court, consider this: The U.S. Senate confirms Supreme Court nominees. The Republican Party will control the U.S. Senate. The DNC and the RNC alike have stated they are sure on the control of t ...

Globalisation: Does It Pose A Threat To The System Of States? - 1,418 words
I am a citizen of the world Diognenes I disagree globalisation poses a threat to the system of states. Furthermore, I believe globalisation is the next step in the development of the state. Globalisation is defined as, the reduction of barriers to trans-world contacts. Through it people become more able physically, legally, culturally, and psychologically to engage with each other in one world . With the dissolution of the Soviet Union the end of the Cold War, there has been supremacy of liberal capitalism and with it the pace of globalisation has been accelerated. With that, states have become part of a much bigger picture, the global village . Being part of a global village has meant that ...

Whats the solution then to all this problems that slow down the intensification of the economy and limit Democracy? One of the best ways would be a huge market campaign, with financial aids from the European Community, to promote the exportation of products outside the Country.

The Brave New World Of Technology - 1,351 words
When thinking of progress, most people think of advances in the scientific fields, believing that most discoveries and technologies are beneficial to society. Are these advances as beneficial as most people think? Brave New World presents a startling view of the future which on the surface appears almost comical. Yet humor was not the intention of Aldous Huxley when he wrote the book in the early 1930's. Indeed Huxleys real message is very dark. His idea that in centuries to come, a one-world government will rise to power, stripping peoples freedom, is not new. In fact there are many books dedicated to this topic. What makes Huxleys interpretation different is the fact that his fictional soc ...

Albert Einstein - 827 words
By: Aaron Finkbeiner E-mail: Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm. He was raised in Munich, where his family owned a small electrical machinery shop. Though he did not even begin to speak until he was three, he showed a great curiosity of nature and even taught himself Euclidean geometry at the age of 12. Albert despised school life, thinking it dull and boring, so when his family decided to move to Milan, Italy, Einstein took the opportunity to drop out of school, only 15 at the time. After a year with his parents in Milan it became clear to him that he would have to make his own way in the world. He finished secondary school in Arrau, Switzerland, and then enr ...

Human Rights In Brazil - 1,402 words
Brazil is one of the fastest-growing nations in the Western Hemisphere. Its population is increasing at the rate of about 2% a year. The constitution of Brazil gives the president tremendous powers.

Brazil has three main ethnic groups-whites, blacks, and people of mixed ancestry. Most of the whites are from Europe. According to the Brazilian government whites make up about 60% of the nation's population, and people of mixed races form about 30%.

Which Political Side Are You On? - 756 words
The liberal philosophy is the one I agree with the most. Liberals believe that the federal government should protect individual liberties and promote the general welfare. Contemporary liberalism is rooted in the Declaration of Independence as well as social and economic programs that began in the 1930's and extended into the 1960's. Today's liberal tends to value individual rights and to be wary of restrictions on personal behavior. Equality is very important to liberals. Liberals believe that everyone should be treated equally. Liberals believe that the government shouldn't control sex or religion, and that women have the right to choose. Liberals protect individual rights for many people a ...

Africa And Latin America In The Political Spectrum Of A New World Order - 652 words
In the world of 2002, there are still huge differences between rich and poor, developed and less developed countries. The industrialized countries are still holding the less developed countries down. The developed countries decide coffee-, tea- and sugar-prices, and consequently exercise an indirect control of the African and Latin American countries economy. We also protect ourselves with high import-taxes and low import-quotas. Increasing protectionism in Northern markets shut off some Third World exports, while at the same time, the increased export of some natural resources, lumber from forests, for example, created the conditions for rapid environmental destruction. At the same time, a ...
