His thought was that the people of Italy have been separated so long that they have developed different customs, cultures, and traditions. With these new things developed he thought that you can’t simply unite those people because they have no common background and therefore won’t want to unite and become one with people they don’t see themselves the same as. Like stated, the views against Italian unification were mainly coming from two people, Vincenzo Gioberti and Daniele Manin. They both believed that Italy shouldn’t unify but there reasons were that if Italy unifies it is taking the princes freedom away and therefore making it easier for foreign invasions and civil wars to occur. Then Menin thought that Italy shouldn’t unify because you can’t force [epp;e with different cultures, customs, and traditions to come

Truly, Voltaire serves to inoculate France from its own vices. While it is during Enlightenment that this book is possible, it is not difficult to believe that Biss’ message could have significance in our modern society through her metaphors of vaccinations, love, and war. As a matter of fact, the modern era adds to the credibility of Biss’ message. Gun control and mass shootings are a hot, widely debated topic in America. John Lott, in his essay How to Stop Mass Shootings, explains that most shooting could have been stopped if America allows “shall-issue laws” to ones who apply and are eligible.

Introduction This essay discusses the impact that access to information has on the public in this day and age. Political aspects such as laws that for as well as against access to information will be addressed and discussed. The actions that are taken against active whistle-blowers in providing access to information will be highlighted. The aim of this is to highlight contradictory facts and allegations concerning access to information. Access to information is increasingly easier and more accessible to the public as analytical views have advanced since post modernism.
Introduction When considering the various applications of David Hume’s moral philosophy, his discussion on the morality of suicide has a great effect on the discussion of ethics and morality more than two-hundred and fifty years later. Our modern Western society is reevaluating its moral code from the ground up year by year in various social issues, which means that it is also becoming unclear what actions are morally permissible. Thus, a critical analysis of Hume’s argument for the moral permissibility of suicide is rather timely. In his essay on suicide, Hume refutes a three-part claim of Thomas Aquinas, a Catholic philosopher and theologian. This essay shows that Hume believes that suicide can be defined as the killing of self that is intended to remove misery and which may or may not be morally justified.
A viewer's own interpretations of a text are important, as they will be drawing from their own codes and cultural values, which is what this text explores. The extract then has various visible examples of print advertisements in the media culture of that time and Williamson analyses these examples showing us the pattern that adverts have a certain way of working. Her argument and what she is fundamentally saying is that advertisements serve another purpose, that there is an advert behind the actual advertisement, to subconsciously get people ideologies with different messages. Adverts such as the Marlboro promoting cigarettes or a perfume advert also promoting how female should look and what is considered beautiful or not. For the cigarette advert, her idea is that "Connecting an object with an object" (Williamson, 1978:22) with the use of colour can then give the assumption that the cigarette and the other object have the same qualities.
Some might argue that banning smoking in hospitals is not so much a good example as a cruel decision for smokers. According to an article in The New York Times, smoking causes long-term stress levels to rise (O’Connor). In addition, Cambridge University researchers found that hospital workers were not smoking outside wards for pleasure or stress reduction but were just driven by chemical dependence. Thus, stress reduction cannot be a valid reason to tolerate smoking on hospital premises. Of course, everyone in hospitals will be offered nicotine replacement therapy and plenty of advice to minimize withdrawal symptoms and to make them feel convinced enough.
However, these that oppose the decision need to recognize that supporting the ban is the ethical decision. The government has to work effectively to accomplish the tobacco ban implementation. I would say that for the ban to be effective, the government must first also educate the citizens about the dangers of
The cigarette companies asserted that their adverts were only targeted at people who were already smokers and thus not targeted at non-smokers, a survey which was conducted by the Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB) was used to defend their position that tobacco adverts did not persuade people to take up smoking. The survey results showed that 49% of the people surveyed admitted that they started smoking to see what it was like, 24% said their friends smoke and crucially for critics of the ban, none of the people surveyed said advertisements persuaded them to smoke. It was also noted that some supporters of the ban claimed that the government was spending substantial amounts on offering healthcare to more of its citizens as a consequence of illnesses attributed to smoking, opponents of the ban in reply to this contended that as was the case in developing nations like India, overall spending on healthcare, insurance and pension systems were so insignificant that the claim that India's government was expending a lot of its resources on healthcare was
However just because the crusaders made no money doesn 't prove that greed didn 't inspire people to join. People buy lottery tickets all the time and many never win. Just because they don 't turn a profit doesn 't prove that they didn 't buy a ticket to make money. Also the fact that most of the army returned to Europe doesn 't prove that they didn 't desire land when joining. They may have initially wanted to gain land in the Holy Land and make a new start somewhere else.
A key contribution of the Black report was the specification of different potential explanations for health inequalities. The importance of reporting is to bring out behavioural factors that can be discussed with as well as the economic and social constraints on lifestyles being recognised with appropriate measures taken. The effect of low income makes it meaningless to consider diet a matter solely of choice. Similarly, smoking can compensate for and make bearable the consequences of material deprivation which can then be properly investigated (WHO, 2007). The Marmot Review 2010 involves the strategies for reducing health inequalities in England in relation to Global Commission on Social Determinants of Health (GCDH) and this report indicated that people who are at the lower level of socio-economic factors such as unemployed, unskilled workers, people that living in overcrowded housing, homeless people and people with limited education might find it difficult to access healthcare needs because they will always need to rely on welfare state benefits and support to survive (Goldberg, et al.
Stone employs this device for defining policy problems as a method of creating an argument in the polis based on the root causes of an issue (Stone 2012, 225). With this method, debates can be formed on the premise of why the other side is wrong, and from there be built on the principles of the other side is correct. This model is used in Armentano’s essay when he presents several reasons for why the federal government’s involvement in this issue is harmful to Americans. He argues, “Enforcement of cannabis prohibition financially burdens taxpayers, encroaches on civil liberties, engenders disrespect for the law… and disproportionately affects young people and communities of color” (Wanlund 2015, 881). By highlighting the various negative aspects of government involvement in these policies, Armentano challenges those that oppose state sponsored policies, while simultaneously placing blame on the government for these policy problems.
On the other hand, if the electronic cigarette is being used by a smoker as an alternative way of smoking, it may help him/her in reducing or satisfying tobacco cigarette craving. Results of the various studies regarding electronic cigarettes are still debatable and inconclusive since the ultimate effects of its consumption are still being researched by the experts. I therefore conclude that currently the effects, risks and benefits of the electronic cigarette use are still undetermined because of lack of strong proof
The statistics of marijuana use in today’s United States provided in this article describe this problem more specifically and precisely, which also add credibility to its argument. Isralowitz here tries to look at marijuana use in a political way and presents different voices from various social organizations, offering a new perspective to indicate that there are health benefits to be had with marijuana’s use. However, the context of this article reveals a preference for marijuana legalization and a prospective shift in values of marijuana without showing solid evidences to prove Isralowitz’s
