On September 11, 2001 the world came to a stand still as a terroristic attack targeting our country killed 2,977 people. As fear ran high in every American house hold, the government quickly acted and on October 26 President George W. Bush passed the USA PATRIOT Act. The full title, "Uniting and Strenghtening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act", suggest how the government quickly acted in response to the new threat that we were experianceing. Although some may argue that it violates our civil liberties, the Patriot Act serves as an asset to help protect U.S. citizens by stopping terrorist attacks, giving the law enforcement tools to make investigations easier, and increases national security. What the Patriot Act does is it provides us with a tool to strengthen the ability that the government has to stop terrorist attacks from happening on U.S. soil.
If we ever hope to come together and promote equality as a society, how must we do so if we suppress the needs of those with suppressed rights? To amend the issues that we have created, there must be stricter regulations around solitary confinement as it is a cause of unnecessary suicides, robs citizens of their basic rights, and brings down our intersectionality as a collective society here in Canada. Lately, the number of solitary confinement prompted suicides have skyrocketed, and have been on a steep incline for nine years, with no plans for amendment. A study at Cambridge University has determined that 63% of suicides in federal prisons take place while the inmate is in solitary confinement.

The British in the 1700s controlled a massive empire all around the world and they knew how to deal with a rebellion, but they had never had a rebellion where former British residents were the rebels. The colonists had a very extreme reaction to a handful of simple taxes the British put in place that were only supposed to help finance the previous wars in North America, most notably the French and Indian War. The British reacted very reasonably against the colonial tax resistance, and the colonists only worsened the situation as they were overreacting about very small taxes. After the British attempted to pass taxes to help finance the recent wars with France, the colonists began on their rampage against any kind of British tax on the goods they bought. The first tax that Britain passed was the Sugar Act of 1764, this tax was on sugar goods and after a lot of unrest Parliament finally lowered the price of the tax and the colonists were satisfied.
The Unit command could not allow one of its own to just leave. This would create moral problems, this war was unpopular, to allow one of their own to troll the streets back in America without the standard debrief would only court certain disaster. The solution turned out to be simple. Send one of their own to “chase” and apprehend Greeley. If Greeley resisted and killed the chaser, CID could move in quickly and kill Greeley.
The first reason as to why the Reign of Terror was not justified is because Enlightenment ideas were ignored. The national assembly created The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizens to give all citizens the same rights: liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression (Doc. A). Unfortunately, this was disregarded with the Reign of Terror. Another way that enlightenment ideas were ignored is the fact that a government official in western France wanted to kill people that were thought to be guilty without a fair trial; this was completely against Enlightenment ideas.
It begins with the government working against the protagonist’s aims and desires and only focusing on what they believe is the correct way to deal with the post-war. Most of the time, the protagonist acts different than the rest of the community making him or her a risk or threat to the government. The obvious result of this situation, for the governments, is to eliminate the risk or destroy it by any means necessary. The oppression is frequent and common. It always results in the loss of civil liberties, sexual freedom, and privacy.
Since recent terror attacks have happened everyone believes that has to be the cause of the problem. In the end and as I’ve said earlier, the residents on Maple Street are the monsters themselves. If Tommy never mentioned aliens and Phyllis never mentioned terrorists then most likely there would be no stories to
“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one” stated by Benjamin Franklin. Freedom of speech, freedom to express your thoughts and freedom to live the American lifestyle is now limited all because of the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act was passed by Congress on October 24, 2001 after the devastating terrorist attack on September 11, 2001; thousands of people lost their lives. The Patriot Act was created to find and prosecute terrorists operating in the United States of America ;the lesser known Military Commissions Act (MCA) was created to" give the President absolute power to designate enemy combatants, and to set his own definitions for torture." Nevertheless, with all of these laws and regulations
For many years, the Canadian population has been divided in its opinion of capital punishment. Since its abolishment in 1976, there has been increased support for the death penalty. The major obstacle for the supporters is the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It states that everyone has the right to life and the right not to be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment. This includes death, even if there are many reasons as to why so many people support the death penalty.
However, in recent times, Muslims within Canada have faced terror as they are being mislabelled as terrorists, despite not provoking hate. Of course, ideologies from America have spread to Canada, but all people are meant to be safe within Canada. Terrorism within Canada does exist, but it is not nearly as much of an issue within Canada as it is in America. Despite this, Muslims within Canada now face terrorism from other citizens because people are afraid of their religion. Just recently, a terrorist attacked a mosque in Quebec City, killing six people, for no apparent reason.
The Boston Tea Party, Sugar Act, Tea Act, and Stamp Act all helped to inflame each side in this and help each side to grow hatred for eachother. So the question is, What was the Battle of Lexington and Concord and how did it help to start the Revolutionary War? The Battle of Lexington and Concord didn 't just start because someone said hey let 's go kill a bunch of Brits NO! The war started because of unfair treatment and unjust ways of collecting money that were not necessary to the government and that were not helping the colonies at all. The main reason for the battle to begin was that the British were putting
