Snowden releasing the information made laws placed to where it 's harder for the government to spy on its people (Ray)19. The UN intervened and helped the people of the united states to make an act in place to protect privacy (Ray)20. Eric H. Holder told the government that Snowden helped the government from crossing the line when it came to spying and they thank him even though Snowden is still a criminal (Ray)21. From the very little good it did, it actually made the united states more unsafe because it has become harder to watch the groups of terrorist (Ray)22. The damage is done and he did it out of selfishness the people he swore to protect are more endangered than ever (Couric)23.
A key part would be how Larson intensively wrote about the dirty antics of the politicians. For example, Alexander Hamilton trying to prevent Adams from becoming Vice President. He willingly put words into Adams’ mouth to make him seem unfit for the position. This has ultimately changed my perspective on Alexander Hamilton. I thought of him as a very key figure in history because of the Revolutionary War not because of his sabotage of political affairs.
In the side of the CIA and the NSA, I think that they are doing this things for the national security but also that's illegal to do it without the order of an approval of a martial court, thing that they don´t have. All the American people has been talking about this scandal and some of them think that it´s great for the national security but other people say that it's a crime because the government its violation a fundamental law that is the privacy law, I include
Not a lie that rushed a nation into a superfluous war, that duped the nation of a large number of dollars or jeopardized individuals' lives. The lie was close to the foreswearing of wrongdoing, a protestation of purity. Disgrace on us for allowing our legislature to threaten us. However, the general
In Ender’s case, manipulation might have been necessary or unnecessary. It was obvious that Ender was manipulated into exterminating an entire race. In this essay, I am going to present reasons why Ender shouldn’t have been manipulated but in fact he deeply is. One of the reasons why Ender should not have been manipulated is the guilt that Ender felt because of that manipulation. The other reason is there might have been catastrophic results because of not knowing about the truth.
The placement of Brutus and Cassius is due to their sins of treason. Regardless of the fact that Brutus and Cassius existed before Christianity and should have been placed in limbo, their sins of treason determined their place in hell. Sins of treason harm the government and the reputation of the society as a whole, therefore, sins of treason is the ultimate sin. As the emperor of Rome at the height of its power, Caesar was considered to be the perfect manifestation of a strong government. He was an authoritarian figure that can influence society and order.
In fact, an anonymous man is known as “Deep Throat” informs the press of the crew’s plans of sabotaging political parties. What is even more dishonorable, is that Nixon had secret tapes that he secretly recorded with 3,700 hours of meetings and calls in executive offices. These tapes were the fault of the entire scandal, which was detrimental to Nixon’s presidency. Nixon refused to turn them over and eventually handing over edited transcripts of the tapes. In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government.
Albert Einstein once said, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” Einstein is implying by this statement, in a more fundamental state, “criminals are not at fault for their crimes.” This is, of course, incorrect; one cannot use a bystander as a scapegoat. However, what did he mean by his statement? Is his quote to be taken literally, where onlookers to crimes are more guilty, or rather as a metaphor, simply implying the observers’ faults? His statement is superficially untrue, but multiple perspectives can offer numerous explanations of what he meant. From a literal standpoint, Einstein is most certainly inaccurate.
I was in a hurry to overstep . . . I didn’t mean to kill a human being, but a principle! I killed the principle, but I didn’t overstep, I stopped on this side.”(Dostoyevsky 217) Raskolnikov has to convince himself that he is one of the superhuman people that have the right to break social standards and laws.
(AGG) As Daniel J. Boorstin had clarified, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” (Goodreads) This relates to the government form Fahrenheit 451 trying to hide the truth from the society, and had eventually killed them. (BS-1) The government tries to control the amount of knowledge and take advantage of the lack of knowledge. (BS-2) The effort to control this trait, while helping the society, will eventually damage the society. (BS-3) The lack of memory power will help avoid controversies while damaging many relationships, but, this can be fixed by slowing your thoughts and clearing your mind. (TS) In the book, Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury 's key message is to remind his readers about the value of knowledge and memory, and the dangers of trying to control them.
The Declaration of Independence was written for the American people. King George III had imposed a number of unwise regulations and the miserable acts so the American people did not want to follow under the rules. This document was to persuade the people to finally leave King George’s power so they could be under their own government with their own laws. Now saying that, a lot of people were not completely on board with this proclamation. During this time going against the King and his acts would make you guilty of treason.
Though, criminals should have second chance in their life to change their bad habits, and be a good influence. But, you can’t always trust them, you can’t have this hope that they will always have a good influence and never break the law again. As you know, ex-cons had made a mistake, those who trusted them before might have thought that the person would make good choices, but it turned out that the person made bad choices and broke the law. So, that’s why ex-cons should not have the rights to vote again. Ex-cons should not have the rights to vote again.
Hamilton, in the way he shaped the government, is considered rather shady, for lack of a better word; he took any methods to get what needed to be done, done. This was what typically led to the Jeffersonians’ attacks on him: not only were his actions, at times, difficult to justify, but they made him an easy target for the preying Jeffersonians. If we are to judge the parties solely by their figureheads, then we must take into account Jefferson himself, rather than basing our opinions of the Federalists on Hamilton’s ruthlessness and then taking an angle that makes the Jeffersonians Hamilton’s complete opposites. For all of Hamilton’s low points, it must be remembered that Jefferson was not so noble himself: the ideological differences between Federalists and Jeffersonians brought out the worst in the Founders. The fear of the “Hamiltonian juggernaut,” running a successful development of the nation’s government, was what triggered Jefferson’s increasingly vengeful moves against him and the Federalists.
Is Snowden an enemy for informing the world of how the US keeps tags on them, or is he a hero for letting the American people know that their 4th amendment is being violated? Some can argue that America’s enemies didn’t need Snowden to inform them, groups such as al-Qaeda have long since figured that out. Because it is almost certain that enemies already know about what Snowden revealed, the only thing he did wrong was violate his oath, and the NSA’s oath of secrecy trumps his belief that the NSA’s activities were an unconstitutional threat to the American people. Even though the NSA’s oath trumps Snowden’s beliefs, it does not mean that what the oath is protecting is constitutional. The National Security Agency has been keeping many people out of the dark for years about their policies.
Your Honor, my client is pleading guilty to the charges of breaking the Espionage Act. Although Mr. Debs is extremely sorry for the disturbance he has caused but he was only exercising his first amendment right, peacefully. My client is aware, and has a clear understanding in what the Espionage Act is put in place for; the real problem is how could a law such as this exist? The espionage Act is in place to stop treason, and anti -americanism thoughts, but there is not enough war propaganda that exist to prohibit people from realizing war is not completely glorious. Any person that is anti- war does not make them anti-American.
