The Eighteenth Amendment (prohibition law) to the United States Constitution took away license to do business from the brewers, distillers, vintners, and the wholesale and retail sellers of alcoholic beverages.Prohibition was also given the nickname as “The Scofflaw.”The Scofflaw, One who habitually violates laws, especially laws that does not involve serious criminal offenses.America repealed Prohibition for three reasons.The various reasons include,economics,crime and concerns over enforcement ,and respect for the law. One purpose why proscription was overturned was because,economics.”If the liquor now sold by bootleggers was legally sold, regulated and taxed, the (tax) income would pay interest on the entire local and national (debt) and leave more than two-hundred-million dollars” (Doc E,Leslie Gordon “The New

The final reason why Proctor’s religious knowledge and participation are clouded is because he believes Reverend Parris is greed because Parris was “the first minister ever did demand the deed to his house,” and he “preached nothing but golden candlesticks until he had them.” Once again, one who is Puritan needs to have faith in their religious leader, but Proctor can’t. As a result, he isn’t a devout

The South Carolina House voted to remove the confederate Flag from the capital property after hours of debate and emotional speeches for and against taking down the flag. But if there was never the massacre of nine black church members never happened would they still of taken the flag down? A fight over the Confederate flag even popped up in congress when Republicans proposed a allowing the flag in federally ran cemeteries. There is a lot of emotional debate when it comes to the flag. Over all if we did pass a law saying that there shouldn’t be any more Confederate Flags, it’s almost like ghost.
(p.174) Special interests groups also work through congress to halt regulatory agencies, for example, when the FDA tried to regulate tobacco, Congress refused access in the year 2000 in deference to the tobacco industry.

To which Martin addresses, “The penitential canons are imposed only on the living, and according to them, nothing should be imposed on the dying” (Adolph, #8). Then why is the Catholic Church is selling indulgences for those who have since passed? They are insinuating to the living relatives if they paid a few coins, they could save their loved one from the flames of purgatory (Kagan, 325). The church/priests are using guilt/greed to line their pockets with coins while forgetting to abide by their own rules/canons. With that being said there is nothing that the church should charge for, since that person is no longer under canonical penalties according to Martin’s list and should be released from them (Adolph, #13).
