This caused panic about health and brought with it heavy dietary policies from the federal government. The fifth event is how rock and roll defeated communism. Not only is rock the embodiment of freedom, but it became a vessel for anti communist extremists to reach young people. The sixth event is how Ronald Reagan wrongfully pulled out of Lebanon. Schweikart explained how this move made America seem weak and put a target on our back for terrorist organizations.
The creation of countries, end of segregation, women's suffrage, etc. can be credited to disobedience. America was created because we disobeyed England; we thought that taxation without representation was unfair. Our motive was freedom and justice; the outcome was American people with more rights. In the 50s and 60s, people of color and allies protested segregation with “sit ins”.
Virginia took place on April 10th of 1967. The case resulted from the appeal of the original arrest. Richard Perry Loving and Mildred Jeter Loving filed an appeal against the state of Virginia because they felt the state’s law was a direct violation of the couple’s right to marry and their marital privacy. The Lovings claimed that the state law desecrated their 14th Amendment rights to pursuit life, liberty and happiness (“Kids” par.3). They changed their plea to guilty at the end of the arguments (Newbeack par.4).
The United states’ responded to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, but what was the true intent of the United States? Was this war a true effort to liberate the people of Kuwait or was it to secure Kuwait and Saudi Arabia’s oil fields to protect their interests in the oil trade, or even both? Operation Desert Storm also referred to as the Persian Gulf War or simply the first Gulf War, begins to unfold in an effort by the iraqi government, to pay off the debt from the eight years of war with Iran. on August 2, 1990 Iraq invaded Kuwait, a small oil rich-nation in order to provide a financial solution, Kuwait was a major supplier of oil to the United States at the time. The Iraqi takeover of kuwait posed a threat to Saudi Arabia, another major
Osama Bin Laden (founder of Al-Qaeda; a militant Sunni islamist group) justified the 9/11 attacks at New York which violated the USA’s security because 10 years previous during the Gulf War the U.S used Osama’s homeland of Saudi Arabia as a base which in turn violated the security of the Muslim world. In return this justifies the Obama and Bush administration invading Afghanistan then Iraq and the rest of the brutal and violent saga of the last 10 years. During World War II, tensions were mounting when the US enforced a full embargo on Japan due to military aggression on China. In return to this, Japan executed a surprise bombing on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After Japan’s actions, the US justified its revenge attacks on Japan and the atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

Criminals like these make the process of adoption stricter due to the need for criminal activity: “Lemma’s family was scammed by a man who said the girls were being sent to the United States on a study program…Only when the sisters arrived did they realize their legal rights had been signed away to new parents” (CNN). Actions such to these ended up forcing countries to putting a stop on adopting from their country. In 2007, Guatemala was forced to close its adopting agencies due to the allegations the united stated accused the country of. These included child trafficking and coerced, once Guatemala closed, another country took its spot right
This claim might be a surprise to someone who buys into the myth that Reagan managed to, as Thatcher stated in a eulogy for him, “break the world free of a monstrous creed without a shot being fired”(Ronald Reagan). But should we trust a statement from a hardline conservative political figure about her close friend? Maybe we should ask the people of Grenada. There sure were some shots fired during its US invasion. And what about all the weaponry supplied by Reagan’s presidency to the Mujahadeen and other anti-communist guerrillas?
One of the most widely debated moral issues in America, and indeed worldwide, is that of abortion. It has had implications that have been contested in the highest levels of courts, to include the 1973 Supreme Court case of Roe v. Wade. Although the court decided, by a great margin, in favor of a woman’s right to choose whether or not to carry out a pregnancy, the consequences of this choice have, and continue to be, an ethical and political hotbed for debate. This decision, however, only takes into account the impact that an abortion, or birth, has on the state, not the individual, in accordance with the 14th amendment to The Constitution of The United States (Dunaway, 2011), and the rights outlined in The Declaration of Independence.
