Mass shootings, people shooting police, other citizens, kids, and harming the innocent, is unfortunately the world we live in today. Many Americans, myself included, wish there was one fell swoop law, rule or act of magic for that matter that would stop all this reckless destruction overnight. The hidden truth is that even if we take guns away, or ban certain items, people will always find ways to harm others. One major item many Americans want to see happen is tighter, and more gun control laws. Personally I believe that some of the laws we have asked for will not help any of our problems, but instead make many legal gun owners become criminals simply because of the weapons they choose for defense, hunting, or sports shooting.
While there are many arguments for why marijuana should be legalized, legalizing marijuana is the wrong choice. Marijuana is addicting, can lead to usage of other drugs and has negative impact on society. I have a child on the way and by the time he or she is old enough to know about marijuana and right from wrong, I want them to make the right decision to stay away from it and know that it’s illegal for
The research also tells me that athletes are misusing steroids and that they should be banned. The reason why is too many athletes are getting arrested and dying from using too much steroids. I think they should get banned and the athletes should perform to their natural ability. I also think that the athletes would perform better without use of steroids. So therefore the research and I think that performance enhancing drugs and steroids should be banned.
The flag represents nationhood which gives us the freedom we need and want. Johnson for burning the flag leads to many causes. For him to do that, that’s means he doesn’t honor our nations freedom as well as the unity of our governments. If Johnson wasn’t careful with what he did he wouldn’t have been in this big of a situation. He caused a lot of people to dislike him in many ways.
Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died. Also, people want to have it down because there was starting to be fights about the discussion of the flag being banned or being back up. Also people are also wanting it banned because it has been causing too much trouble in places that started to have. People want it down also because it is a sign of slavery and it is a symbol of a deadly attack on the
The public are banned from owning or reading books, there are many reasons for why people are so averse towards books and submit to the government. Entertainment such as, tv and radio play a big part in why most people do not independently think for themselves.The biggest reason is the sensitivities towards the “offensive” opinions written in these books that makes people submit to the government's rules. This makes one either obey the authority
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury emphasis his belief on censorship and how the future society will be if authority controls the daily aspect of life. Ray Bradbury does this by not allowing anyone to own or read a book, because the society believes that books provide the citizen with unnecessary and false thoughts, if the person is caught with books your whole house is burned and then the individual will be incarcerated. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 expresses the dangers of censorship through limiting the citizens access to knowledge, removing Constitutional Rights, and establishing a realistic allegory similar to today’s society. There are many dangers how censorship limits citizens access to knowledge in many ways. One danger that people could face is not knowing what we see on the news or in the newspaper’s is actually true, and what people say just to cover themselves up or make someone else look good in the person’s eyes.
The law states that is freedom of speech to burn our American Flag, but how is stomping and burning the symbol of this nation where our freedom of speech should be. Most do it out of anger toward our country, but why do they have to take such drastic measures to show their anger. Wattad stated” grant the flag special respect.” ( 1, 2008) It's not saying take away freedom of speech just grant something that represents what our soldiers are fighting for special respect. So if someone would burn the American flag than they would be punished not given a warning and let go. However, even though it might make a grown man cry to see this it doesn’t even come close to how a soldier who have fought for this symbol must
Prohibition was an amendment that caused the ban of alcohol and anything related to it. America was suffering because of alcohol, so prohibition was enforced. Little did the country know, prohibition would cause America to suffer far more. America was facing various problems due to alcohol such as death, crime, and loss of money. America expected to solve these problems by banning alcohol; never did the country expect the problems to worsen.
Forcing a terminally ill person to live when they would rather die than suffer is much more immoral than euthanizing them. Right now, laws prohibit euthanasia in most states in the United States, so most people cannot be euthanized even if they want to be. However, this can be changed with enough people calling their state representatives and protesting the law. Terminally ill
