The government shouldn’t have to baby their people, they can think for themselves. Removing the ability for them to have a choice strips people of their freedom, and America is built on the ideal of freedom. Adding on, the soda ban might not even have any health benefits. Referring back to Gross’ article, a nutritionist is quoted as saying, “It is not reasonable to blame or cite one product… [the proposal] produces a false sense of accomplishment in the fight against obesity.” Even health experts disagree with the ban. This mandate supposedly improves people’s well-being, but it fails at accomplishing that goal.
Zinn believed that the government legislation was unsuccessful; however, the Pageant argued that the legislation, though somewhat ineffective, was a good attempt to curb big businesses’ corruption. According to Zinn, the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 was intended to supervise the railroads; nonetheless, the act was only used to satisfy the public’s support for government regulation of railroads, but it never actually accomplished anything. It only made railroads more popular because the citizens believed that it was more regulated, when in reality, it was not. Moreover, another government legislation, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, was supposed to protect trade and commerce and make monopolies illegal. However, the Court interpreted the Act in a way that made it harmless, and instead used it go against interstate strikes, since they restricted trade, revealing how unsuccessful the government legislation was at curbing businesses’ corruption.
Gun control is a topic that has been debated over the last few years. It is a subject that many people stand for and against the change in policy. Basically gun control would change the way firearms are regulated, by changing laws or polices that control how they are made, sold, owned, and used by civilians. However by trying to take away firearms from civilians would be infringing upon their rights as United States citizens. There are many ethical reasons why gun control should not be implemented towards law-abiding citizens such as it is hypocritical, neglects the reality of control, and is discriminating against gun owners.
Furthermore, Herbert says he is worried about the usage or the similar slogans would diminish its effectiveness. To counter that, Seaver states that, “Those who read our ad may well tend to go out and buy a Coke rather than our book…” He then continues to say they are fine with giving Coca-Cola this benefit. This once again mocks Herbert’s arguments because if Coca-Cola’s slogan is that well known, the book company would be advertising for Coca-Cola. This also indicates that people are unlikely to read a Coke ad and go out to buy a book so Herbert shouldn’t be worried about the slogan being less effective. The tone Seaver uses makes fun of Herbert’s letter and renders his arguments feeble, which increases the effectiveness of the Grove Press
For this reason, such leaks cannot be tolerated.”(cia.gov) Also, censorship helps protect people. During WWII, the government censored many different newspapers and news bulletins because they had appeals to the American people from Nazi leaders and Japanese leaders trying to manipulate the American people. The Government would restrict these news sources because they would decrease the American morale and make them want to end the war effort (Blankley). Censorship, in limited forms, is right and necessary The thing is, the censorship that is mentioned in the paragraph above isn’t the type of censorship that is in Fahrenheit 451. The censorship in Fahrenheit 451 is a completely different type of censorship altogether.
In summary, "stop and frisk" should not be a law anymore because it does not help our community, in fact, it ruins it. The primary reason that shows why to stop and frisk ought not to exist as a law is because guiltless individuals are getting accused of unsafe individual activities. Nevertheless, people still believe that "stop and frisk" protect them and that people from different races are a danger to the society. What people are claiming is false claims because it is not proven by actual statistics. Some people still think that "stop and frisk" is a law that helps bring peace to the nations.
It was made illegal in the 1930’s for the same reasons as alcohol, because it was believed that it was going to do harm to society. As years have gone by, it is obvious that a mistake was made. The fact that marijuana was made illegal has created numerous problems for the United States that on the long run could have been easily avoided. Countries in different parts of the world and some states within the United States have already legalized marijuana and they have all shown positive outcomes out of their decisions. Although marijuana is illegal in majority of the states, legalizing marijuana for recreational use would bring about social and economical reforms that would help deter crime in the country, increase the amount of money the government makes, and also help people that are medically in need of the drug.
Several factors contribute to the rejection of obligatory procedures of the HPV vaccine. Refusal influences include the sexually transmitted nature of HPV, concerns about the safety and efficacy of the new vaccine, and the perception that the vaccine manufacturer was overly involved in the policy process. Individuals argue HPV is not contracted through casual contact in the classroom setting, the vaccine diverges from other mandatory vaccines, and mandate supporters had difficulty debating denial of school entry contingent on proof of vaccination.
Haws and Hunt conclude that relying on your religion isn’t reasonable to oppose the right to end your life when the person has suffered enough. “While I do not support assisted suicide, it is unfair to describe a 10-year illness without addressing the cost [of prolonging life], which would have bankrupted many Americans” (Haws and Hunt). They imply that trying to pay for the patient’s treatment to continue fighting their illnesses will damage them financially and emotionally to the patient and their family. Even though Kuo’s beliefs are some reasons that assisted suicide should be illegal, there will be people who will be against those types of
This movement declares mandatory vaccines unconstitutional and vaccinations overall as the cause of autism. Unfortunately, the anti-vaccination movement is becoming increasingly popular due to individuals’ unfounded fears and imagined consequences associated with the idea of purposely inserting a disease into one’s body. However, despite one’s beliefs, vaccines are essential not only to a person’s well-being, but to the health of those around them. Mandatory vaccinations do not cause autism; rather, they save lives while upholding values of
