When argued that the Second Amendment is purely to keep from disarming the state militias can not be entirely true, for it is said in the last half of the Amendment itself “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. Meaning that we the “people” still have the right to keep and bear arms. The Bill of rights were set in place for American citizens, abolishing the second Amendment right would cause an uproar throughout our country. As is said everyone wants what they cannot have. For an example, in December of 1920 the
Lastly, Sharia law cannot coexist with a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" because it would violate the American Constitution. One of the first things that the Constitution grants its American citizens is free speech; this means that people can say whatever they want. However, Sharia law does not grant such a luxury. It is against the code to "[criticize] or [deny] any part of Quran". If anyone under Sharia law violates said code, the punishment is death.
We live in a global village that has many religions in it and hence should not make laws that are partial to few or put others at a disadvantage. Religions have contradicting opinions on topics and no law supporting or declaring that any one opinion is correct should be passed. Looking at it from a broader perspective, religion should not interfere with the rights of people, such as freedom of speech. Salman Rushdie himself felt the blunt of this as the supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a Fatwa against him, calling for his assassination following the publication of his novel, The Satanic Verses in the l980s. He claimed that the book was against religion as an Islam itself.
The First Amendment states, congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. This Amendment gives people the right to be free in the areas of religion, speech, right to assemble , and to petition. In particular, the freedom of speech is a luxury and something we as citizens take for granted. According to John Lovett who wrote an article called The Culture of Shut Up and also worked alongside, then- Senator Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama, one's voice is their power. In this article Lovett explains how our communication, provided by the first amendment, is being compromised and deteriorated as time goes on.
This was a necessary precaution of the prosperity and stability of the nation. The Alien Act declared that if war between the United States and another country, the President shall publicly announce the war. However, one important aspect of our Acts comprised of the nature of immigrants. We firmly believe that in a time of war, all foreign males fourteen years old and older, who are not citizens of the United States, shall be removed as “alien enemies” (Alien Acts). This is necessary for the protection of our country and the success of our
Therefore, colleges should definitely prevent people who have a background of violence and crime from speaking at their campuses for the safety of their students. However, this also means that speech that does not call for violence should not be prohibited, no matter how offensive it is. After all, when all of these historical standards are picked out and taken into account, what we are left with is the bare backbone of our nation’s philosophy: the freedom to express your true
Human rights are rights ingrained to all the individuals, whatever our citizenship, place of residence, sex, national or racial origin, cast, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally eligible to our human rights without favoritism. These rights are all interconnected, interdependent and inseparable. The intention of human rights expanded quickly to India, Greece and at last Rome. The most significant progress since then have included: 1215: The Magna Carta—gave people new rights and made the king subject to the law.
Moreover, human rights are for everyone, no matter where you came from, you are born with a human right. It is protected by law; according to United for Human Rights, everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law. Human rights focuses on the dignity of a person, and our human rights cannot be taken away. Lastly, human rights provide a neutral standpoint, so that conflicts can be resolved in between the two
Freedom of speech allows individuals to express themselves by making a speech without interference from the government. (Cornell University Law School, 2004) This allows the government to be able to know what the citizens point out their views when in a dangerous position. Freedom of speech are in more than 18 countries in the world and still going on even today. In Singapore, the government restrict citizens to have freedom of speech regardless of race and religion as it caused division in society and I also agreed with this. The three reasons why I should not allowed to speak as they wish on race and religion in public because will offended to someone of any races and affect the economy in Singapore, can lead to violence and increase the chances of riots in Singapore.
Islam is prohibited this criminal act in all of its areas, since there are no reasons for killing the innocent people. The numbers of terrorism and extremism is increasing day after a day, so such an imminent danger must be taken for confronting the threat of ISIS and the other prevalent terrorist groups. The developed and civilized communities must meet together and work hard to success by eliminating the threats played by the terrorism. GCC is adapting a strict role against this criminal act.
