Ownership regulations don't outright ban the breed but rather makes it extremely difficult to own a pit bull.There is a long list of regulations that need to be meet to obtain a dog such as liability insurance mandatory spay or neuter and muzzled in public. With BSL the government basically controls who can and cannot have a banned
How does the constitution guard against tyranny? The constitution guards against tyranny because of the power being shared, government branches, and checks and balances. I know this because of the documents in the DBQ I also knew it from the questions based on what I read. First of all, the power is shared. This can guard against tyranny because when one person gains too much power, then tyranny is almost guaranteed because there would not be an easy way to stop them from doing only what they desire.
The current imbalance due to the information the government has on us and the lack of information we receive from the government must be mended and this right will do just that. It's a right that must be built upon and expanded because of the recent growth in distribution and creation of information and data. Many countries have updated or interpreted their constitutions to support the right to access official information. So as this right is coming to attention internationally it has its place on the home front in the United States. Our freedoms must be protected and this right gives us the freedom that we deserve to be a part of this system and to have a say in our governance.
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
“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests” ("Patrick Henry Quotes") said Patrick Henry, a Founding Father of The Declaration of Independence in the 18th century. The government should be a tool of the people, rather than the converse. Though the government supposedly serves the well-being of the people, it does not satisfy every individual’s needs and can ignore opinions which may be of value and moral righteousness. With this being said, it is indeed appropriate to defy the government under certain conditions. To begin, disobeying the government should be considered necessary as long as the people peaceably act and reasonably state their opinions.
Without limiting the power of the government, the rights of the individual would be squashed and our beloved freedom would be lost. Although running a country without a written constitution is doable, I believe that in order to ensure the best chance of having a successful country there must be an official written
It has been contaminated by political influences. Today, the media has many vital roles in a modern democracy such as; political lies, reviling the truth to the public as well as helping to aid with the hypocrisy of the nation. Democracy is commonly defined as by Abraham Lincoln “A Government of the people, by the people and for the people”. In today’s society, liberation and democracy walk hand in hand. Democracy, in my view, is only capable of exsisting with a
In Animal Farm, George Orwell illustrates that it is the responsibility of the citizens to stand up against injustice and inequality. As portrayed in the book, society will not change if the citizens make no effort to use their voices to make and drive change. We can become oppressed by our leaders and so can our way of life. We find that it is easier to keep reserved and quiet when voicing our opinion is needed, and can easily become manipulated. The animals in Animal Farm dealt with a lot of injustice and inequality.
For better or worse, we are inextricably linked to the media. We are now living a media culture and its influence is becoming very pervasive (Mohd Hamdan Adnan 2003) There is one law in Malaysia that protects media freedom, Article 10 of the Constitution. It also notes that there are limits to this freedom, and these limits are, generally, defined by the Government. Media freedom is defined the freedom of communicating and expressing through media including various electronic media and published materials. Freedom of the press is essential to democracy, but like other freedoms, it may also complicate the governing process.
Galloway explains that free speech is the underlying foundation of a democratic government and allows discussions on important issues and provides access to information which develops an informed society and encourages the prevailing of truth. While it is ensured by the Constitution, freedom of speech is not an absolute right as the Parliament is allowed to enact laws to restrict it, especially when it involves hate speech. There is no universally agreed definition for hate speech but the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers Recommendation 97(20) stated that hate speech covers ‘all forms of expression which spread, incite, promote or justify racial hatred, xenophobia, anti-Semitism or other
