Snowden’s actions proved his incompetence as a professional. He basically took all the files and dumped them on newspapers doorsteps. If his intentions were for the government to reform the NSA activities so they protected civil liberties more, he would have stayed at the agency longer and collected more information and carefully presented it to the people who do the changes, not to the public. 2. Snowden harmed the relationship between the US and its allies.
Gun Control Gun control has become a polarizing and controversial issue around the globe. There have been many reported issues of mass shootings both in schools and in the public, making it a hot button issue. Proponents argue that, if the government strictly controls the ownership of guns, such tragedies can be prevented. Most Americans have an obsession with guns because the law allows them to do so. Therefore, they are always ready to scoff at anyone trying to control gun ownership.
This is another complex point both writings point out. Martin Luther King wants to make sure his audience actually understands what he is trying to communicate about laws and human behavior towards
So, I thought he would be more for the middle class which was more of the work force at that time. However, we were in a cold war and I thought he was the type of person and spokesman that could help the situation. But also looking back, he came from a very wealthy family so he couldn’t really be controlled by money and had the ability that he couldn 't be bought. Of course I was only in my late teens, therefore I didn’t look at the election from a political standpoint. I was more looking at it from the age he was and that he would be more concerned about our country for awhile and not concerned about that time period”(Schulze).
Locke wanted to avoid the possibilities of his works would being destroyed, by preserving them, they could be passed down for generations to inspire people to be leaders, to make a difference, and to stand for what he felt is right. In this paper I will analyze and reflect on chapter nine of Locke’s Second Treatise of Government. Throughout I will discuss what Locke understands to be the ends of government and how that affects our modern society.
The article, “The Patriot Act Infringes on International Students ' Privacy Rights” claims that, “Campus police [...] has the right to find out what books we check out of the library, find out what kinds of political convictions we express in our classes and around campus and go to other ridiculous lengths to screen our daily activities” (McCormack), this made people feel unsafe because the campus police are there to keep them safe, not impose on their private activities. But without them doing their jobs, they wouldn’t be able to find out key information about some terrorist attacks. The article also claims that the patriot act targets international students and imposes on their learning. Consequently, they do this because some of the terrorists that took part in 9/11 came into the country with a student visa, so the government has to be more cautious with the international students. Lastly, McCormack states that “This type of legislation threatens our ability to work for change within society and acts to silence voices of dissent” (McCormack).
After leaking of the clandestine surveillance program PRISM which is operated by the United States National Security Agency (NSA) to collect internet communication including telephone calls, e-mails and other files made by millions of American, Edward Snowden is considered as a traitor by some of American politicians. They criticize his conduct violate the law and should be prosecuted. However, most of the ordinary citizens hail Snowden as a hero to reveal the unethical actions taken by American government. A person, through his own decisions and actions, to defend one country and maybe all the countries people’s freedom, is not called a hero, then who else can be called a hero?
As the years go on, the debating on how body scans are unnecessary how we pat downs are an invasion to the people 's privacy. Though there are many doubts as to whether the pat-downs are lawful they are still necessary. Terrorist threats have been happening since September 11, 2001, the terrorist threat within airports are ever so high. Airports these days are on constant high alert and searching passengers before boarding an aircraft is almost necessary with the constant threat of terrorist carrying dangerous items. Terrorist acts such as bombings and hijacking can all be prevented with the body scans.
People believe that the government causes certain events in order to make more strict regulations in the country. During the time of the Sandy Hook shooting, President Obama was fighting for more strict gun control within the country. Many people believe that because of this fight the Sandy Hook shooting took place. Society would rather put the blame on the government, rather than accepting the fact that some people just have issues that cause them to perform unthinkable acts. For example, Adam Lanza, the shooter of Sandy Hook elementary.
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.
The First Amendment of The Constitution is engraved in the minds of the American people for being the guarantor of the Freedom of Speech clause. Nevertheless, the vagueness of said clause has been subjugated to challenges that ask; “Should Freedom of Speech be regulated?” The Supreme Court appeared to be inconsistent for creating answers on a case-by-case basis. However, in the midst of said inconsistency, the Supreme Court’s most compelling standard to determine if speech can be constitutionally restricted is if said speech abridges people from other constitutionally guaranteed rights.
This has been one of the most tragic wars up to date. Some follow the happenings of this war, but do the people really know what 's going on? The Iraq war was a crime, George W. bush and Donald Rumsfeld lied to the united nations and the rest of the world for many years and the media. For example, Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction and he nothing to do with Al-Qaeda. Though the Bush government told the media false information for cover-ups to protect himself in the corrupt acts that were happening during the war.
1. This paper will discuss the rapes that occur while in the military, and a way to spread awareness. 2. I interested in spearing awareness about this topic because the people put their life on the line every day to save us and we should be doing the same. Many of those men and women that get rape in the military are ashamed of admitting it, but I want to help them by inspiring them to speak up about it so the others can follow.
Government Surveillance violates our Bill of Right The Fourth Amendment protects the people from unreasonable searches from the police or any other government official. I agree with Christopher Soghoian, technology can in fact be a civil rights issue due to government surveillance. Invading our civil rights by government officials has been attempted more than once before.
