As the movie Gattaca hints, a community of people reliant only on the study of genes definitely has a few flaws. For one, the use of gene identification would be treated or used in a very mean, unfair way. As the movie showed, people with less healthy genes (such as Vincent), would be unable to reach their dreams. This is unfair! The extremely important part of our government, "everyone is created equal" is suddenly lost.
The American public school system is arguably weak when compared to other countries, but it still functions to educate the public. The issue of inequality arises when it comes to higher education and who has access to it. Due to higher education costing anywhere from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars in the United States, it is easy to see why there is an unequal level of access to higher education. Some might argue that higher education is not necessary and that the poor can find a living without it. This is not only restricting the poor to the lower class, but is simply not true.
There has always been resistance against vaccination, even when it was first developed by Edward Jenner. Despite the millions of deaths that been avoided through the use of vaccines, people have always found ways to criticize this medical breakthrough. However, it was not until recently that the fear of vaccinations began to re-emerge and confuse the minds of the general population. With the growing concerns about vaccinations, parents are becoming more reluctant in vaccinating themselves and their children. Consequently, infectious diseases that were once contained (such as measles) are now resurfacing as outbreaks.
The shortage starts with education and continues on with the reduction in income along with benefits. Skilled labor workers are being forgotten in the hustle of society, which is a tragedy. These American workers are integral part of our society and should not be forgotten. Education programs that teach skilled labor is not being adequately advertised to students. Students are not being informed
I thought the American Dream looked over those who starved and others that are trying to make a living. People from other countries only see the bad in us; however, there is a good side! America lets us have freedom! You can have different beliefs, same sex marriage, and nobody having to hold you back. I’m glad I live in a country where I can persuade myself into doing more and becoming a prime example of the American
To emphasize, rights, equality and having a strong government is very important. Looked at through the eyes of many other countries, Americans are spoiled. Americans don’t realize how much freedom we actually have. To name a few rights of an American citizen; freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and the right to peacefully assemble. Every American takes advantage of these rights every day.
“It is about ending the incredible despair that exists in many parts of this country where – as a result of unemployment and low wages, suicide, drugs and alcohol – millions of Americans are now dying, in an ahistorical way, at a younger age than their parents (Sanders).” Suicide, drugs, and alcohol are all hard hitting subjects to most, especially suicide. And the fact that he mentions young Americans are succumbing to these things evokes pathos because children are seen more innocent and untouched by society than adults. Therefore, seeing a child, adolescent, or young adult succumb to any of the previously mentioned things would be devastating for most to hear and see.
There has been a huge controversy concerning vaccination for children from many parents. Many parents had different reason on why they were for or against vaccination. Some for religious purposes, concerned about the long-term side effects. Most parents feel that vaccine is poison. The fact that doctors are injecting something into their child can be terrifying.
Imagine the world described in fiction novels, disease haunts the world and people live in fear, not knowing whether they will survive another day. Measles, a disease most thought eradicated by its powerful immunization, still causes 16 deaths every hour. Though nearly 84% of the United States has been vaccinated against this, a recent outbreak has caused an eruption of opinions on the topic. Though many may argue that a child’s medical related decisions should be made by the child’s parent or guardian. In actuality, those who are not vaccinated for any contagious disease, pose a threat to the general health of the citizens of United States, as well as bringing back previously eradicated diseases.
The controversial topic of abortion has caused many problems in the country more than ever because some people have taken their complaining to the next level. To be specific, the anti-abortion campaign has become so severe that the government has had to increase restrictions on abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood, one of the largest institutions that offer abortion services in the country. Religious institutions such as the Roman Catholic Church and other humanitarian groups have taken it amongst themselves to wage a war against legalization of abortion by advocating for closure and elimination of funding of abortion centers. Unfortunately, some people have taken it upon themselves to reduce abortion by targeting well-known abortion supporters
