Benedict Arnold was born on January 14, 1741 as the sixth Benedict Arnold (Sheinkin 4). He was a great man, a man of pride and honor, and a man who helped our country gain independence from England. Anyone who is capable of doing that should be labeled as a hero. Although some people may classify him as a traitor because of some choices he made in his later life, Arnold is still a hero because of his bravery and intelligence, and his determination and leadership. Bravery is a trait

With some Americans refusing to stay open minded to the beliefs of the opposite political party, our country will get nowhere. As one of our country’s Founding Fathers, Washington would not approve of this, and demand the next president change this. If George Washington was still alive today, he would be able to give the next president advice to transform our country. Someone with the unbiased mindset toward the two main political parties would be a much needed perspective for the next president.
By adopting this method as the only major way of study, scholars are abandoning their rights to be a human. Additionally, if students get used to this kind of dehumanizing method, it is more likely that those people will be unconcern, indifferent or even contemptuous towards warfare. War may appear to them as no more than a political rivalry, a number games, or a business conflict. Moreover, because they distant themselves from the blood and fresh contest and the life-and-death scenario, they may be more easily to wage a new war, and this is problematic and
His foreboding intuition about the presence of powerful central governments, conditioning of human beings, and attempts of mind control were all too real. Consequently, Huxley’s work foreshadowed the societal issues experienced in the mid-twentieth century and could have been used to identify the ominous circumstances, in order to prevent their occurrence. Brave New World perfect example of issues that arise with the advancement of
However, the university is unable to regulate the students’ offensive symbols. In detail, the quote “…extremely difficult to decide… particular communication is offensive enough to warrant prohibition or to weigh the degree of offensiveness against the potential value of communication” demonstrates that to limit and categorize speech is challenging since people have diverse opinions on what type of speech is deemed as offensive or discourteous (Bok). The opposition of this conflict is that speech regulations can trigger backfires by certain rebellious and problematic offenders who believe in their actions. To solve the dilemma, Bok encourages the readers to overlook offensive material and educate the offenders in order to cause less publicity of obnoxious speech and help the wrongdoers understand their negative effects on the
According to one theory, overprecision springs from the desire to relieve internal dissonance, or a state of tension regarding the right decision or course of action. People in a stressful state of tension feel motivated to relieve this dissonance, even if this requires them to change what they believe. There are psychological and social forces that push us toward unwarranted self-assurance. But can we be blamed for wanting to believe that we know what is true and false? If we find out that we were mistaken about something, we move in that instant from the old belief to a new belief.

In the history of America, the history of the world, never had such unexpected terror descended from the skies. In one hour, the peace and relative quite of 9:45 AM in New York City, was disrupted by a plane circling overhead. Curiosity turned to aghast and shock as the plane started diving toward one of the twin towers. It crashed into an upper story of the building, spewing fire and showering those below with debris. This was only one of 4 hijacked planes, heading toward other United States landmarks.
America is a nation blossomed with prosperity, yet it is notorious for the proliferation of appalling violence and homicides. By focusing on the Columbine High School massacre, Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine explores the environment/causes that lead to shooting tragedies and exposes the culture of fear that governs the unstable American society. On April 20, 1999, two senior students, Erik Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and severely wounded 21 others with a 9mm carbine and a 12-gauge shotgun at Columbine High School. The bloodbath is directly related to the extensive accessibility of ammunitions. Through an investigation, Moore shockingly discovers that a Michigan local bank rewards free guns to customers who open new
Marching band is one of the most underrated sports, but is also one of the greatest due to the physical and mental strength required to to be successful at it. Instead of making this essay all about why I should be a section leader of next years Alto Saxophones, I have decided to write about why a specific team of saxes should be next years section leaders. After watching the huge change in the flute section this year with three section leaders, I asked myself, if the flutes could do it, then why can’t we? The section has pretty much accepted that Kristina will be a section leader as long as she applies. A majority of us have no problem with that because she deserves it.
