Thereby attaining conformity and a multiculturalist form of ‘groupthink’. When our ability to think critically is thwarted, so is our freedom. New Zealand must not become a nation alienated from itself and its right to truth by an ideology based in non-reality. We must oppose political correct doctrine at all costs and strive for truth through the employment of arguments based in rationality, reality and logic. The disambiguation of our language and our rights to freedom of expression are imperative, or else, western society will endure further the crippling effects political correctness, and it’s
Herein lies the ultimate departure from Confucianism, and the reason Legalists deem such thought unforgiveable. Whereas Confucius would emphasize that the goal of the state would be the removal of litigations entirely, Legalists pursue the notion that law is necessary at all times (Chan p. 88). Fundamental opposition prevents many comparisons between the two schools, with the differences far outweighing the
Thomas Paine opposes the ideology of government, stating that, “Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil,” (Paine 3). Essentially, the purpose of government is to protect people from preforming vices, and defend their natural right to Locke’s ideology of life, liberty and property. Without government, coercion would occur, and destroy one’s ability to express their natural rights. For America, Paine believes that the establishment of a strong fundamental government could allow for the cohesion of citizens to form a society respected by other nations
As a result, the Anti-Imperial League proposed that the United States ' imperialistic interests were not compatible with the U.S. 's moral frame of reference and thus could not be justified. The Leauge stated "our reliance is the love of liberty which God has planted in us. Our defense is the spirit to which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men in all lands. Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves and under a just God cannot retain it", sentiment I would have agreed with.

10, his views of the inevitability of factions. Madison sees factions as potentially harmful to the political process and dangerous to the progress that government can create for its citizens. Using the works of previous authors such as Lock and Montesquieu, Madison realizes that people are naturally going to strive for their own self-interest when given the liberty to do so, “There are two methods of removing the causes of faction: the one, by destroying liberty which is essential to its existence; the other, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the same interests.” (Madison pg. 461). Therefore, despite them being somewhat alarming for a government to deal with, there is no way to rid of factions within a fair and free government.
Orwell 's goal was to warn us of the serious danger totalitarianism poses to society. Orwell 's was a socialists and believed strongly in the potential for rebellion go wrong and developed into totalitarian rule. We as society should not be letting ourselves be control by the government because it will get us into a much bigger danger of depending on their government. People should not be letting their lives be manipulated there is actually managment going on in them, people have the right to make their own choices or decisions because we all have rights and the government is not really respecting that. Yes the people should be taking it as a warning as an important advice, our society is being controlled by the government and people
Egoism being the theory that believes that selfishness is the foundation of morality. Robert Bass claims that Rand does not create a compelling case to convince her audience that egoism and rights go together. Bass believes that Rand made a mistake when “she posited, as the alternative to egoism, a doctrine that she labeled altruism” (Bass, 330). Unlike Rand, Bass
Consequentialism asserts that the ends justify the means or that if the results are good then the actions taken to obtain the result is irrelevant. In contrast, Deontology states that actions that are based on a moral code are moral even if their results are detrimental. The worst examples of ambition fall to closely to these two categories. The South Sea Bubble aligns with Consequentialism. Mccarthys direct actions against communism were based on a moral code however the entire situation was immoral.
It would make no sense whatsoever to restrict the right to keep and bear arms to state governments, since the principle on which our policy is based, as stated in the Declaration, recognizes that any government, at any level, can become oppressive of our rights. Therefore, we must be prepared to defend ourselves against its abuses, but the movement against 2nd Amendment rights is not just a threat to our capacity to defend ourselves physically against tyranny. It is also part of the much more general assault on the very notion that human beings are capable of moral responsibility. This is a second and deeper reason that the defense of the 2nd Amendment is essential to the defense of liberty. Advocates of banning guns think we can substitute material things for human self-control, but this approach will not wash.
“The first alternative finds its philosophical basis with the anarchists’ presumption” (Teacher) that given that coercion is converse to human freedom is naturally bad so it must be steer clear of, “even at the cost of the very existence of the political entity itself” (Teacher) On the other hand this alternative that focus’ solely on the abolition of coercion has the risk of being ineffective, neither on “philosophical premises” (Teacher) society requires coercion to remain controlled and provide protection for the communities. Therefore another alternative is to investigate the ways and means to normalise the use of coercion rather than abolish it altogether. The state must be democratic in order to normalise coercion, so that it may be used in the combined interest of the
In this quote Madison use abundant image to exclaim the importance of liberty within a faction but it is impossible to perform because liberty is vital to political life. The second way was to give everyone the same interests, passions and similar opinions. Madison’s take on controlling the Factionalism in America was to Remove the causes and Control the effects. His ultimate solution came in the form of Federalism by dividing the government and keeping the factions at the most local of levels. Madison states that "The second expedient is as impracticable as the first would be unwise.".
Should our country sacrifice the solutions our country needs just to keep within the confines of political correctness? That would be destructive for the well- being of our nation at this time. Ben Carson is a proponent of saying things as they are and he could care less about being politically correct. At this moment, most American’s support Ben Carson’s idea of not being politically correct if we want to fix the problems in our country. Political correctness possess a threat on what we say and how we say it.
Washington Rules emphasizes that the United States should order world politics. The world must be ordered by the United States and cannot be permitted to order itself. As a result of Washington rules, the United States has a duty and moral obligation to be the world’s policeman to the point where other nations just naturally expect us to act. The Washington Rules project of US foreign policy has managed to sustain and regenerate itself since the end of World War Two. However, we often forget that by following Washington rules, we do not follow limits and extend our power.
In this condition, violence expedites individual agendas better than “peaceful behavior” (Piirimäe, 2006, p. 4). Hobbes argues that individuals are self-interested, thus unable to maintain structure without the presence of an overarching power (Hobbes, 1991). Both Hobbes and fellow philosopher, John Locke, agree that an anarchy is not desirable and that sacrifices must be made to preserve society. In order to achieve maximal justice, Locke argues for a “social contract” in which individuals give up certain rights to an authoritative power in order to retain others (Laslett, 1960). Agreeing to this social contract is a necessary adaptation that an individual must accept to ensure personal security and the survival of
The topic of the source is when a country heavily relies on their own moral perfection towards their own foreign policy, They will achieve neither perfection nor security. The word security has great influence in the source because self security should take priority over a “Perfect” foreign policy. Henry Kissinger, an American Politician believes that when policy becomes excessively moralistic it may turn unrealistic or dangerous, Which in turn backfires upon the country jeopardizing their security. This source relates to nationalism through the fact that there is no such thing as a perfect foreign policy among nations, there will always be moral imperfection or dispute, Such is the case with the Rwandan genocide in 1994, International Agreements
