My answer to that would be that because some people in our society believe that just because you aren’t a certain raise, age, sex, and skin colour that they have the full right to tell you what you can do and can't do. Which I
Current day, it has little relevancy since it was originally included to address also issues that do not exist anymore, including not trusting the decision to be made by the American people. When originally founded, they wanted to ensure the President was decided by electors who had the knowledge to make what they felt was informed decisions. Now, many people feel as though too much power is given to the electoral votes, and that their vote does not mean as much as someone in a different state. As it stands, many feel that small states are largely misrepresented and given too much power since the votes are not divided equally among the population. In fact, if the Electoral College system was not in the Constitution, it would undoubtedly be removed due to it being unconstitutional, because using the electoral votes violates the principle of one-person, one-vote.
In fact, though they lack political involvement or incentive to voice their opinions, mandatory service should not be a punishment, rather it should be reinforced. As a young adult you are still trying to figure your alliances out, are you republican or democrat? Are you aligned with your parents? Somin addresses the question, “Why then the focus on the young? I suspect it is because they are politically weak.
Many children of the ages of thirteen through fifteen don’t know much about how government really works. They might be hoping for something that one of the candidates promised to happen and get their hopes up. I think they would possibly hear something from a peer and think that it is true and vote for the candidate because it sounds interesting. I also think that someone might see a commercial or an ad that says something about a candidate and vote because of that claim. They really don’t know politics well so they might just pick off of anything they have heard about the candidate In conclusion, there are many more reasons I think the voting age should stick eighteen, but these are some okay ones.
Even if we assume, however, that Hobbes’ state of nature is true, it still would not justify obeying a tyrannical government. Having to live under a tyrannical government that does not protect one’s rights is in no way better than having to compete with other people for survival. In competing with other people, at least everyone is on equal footing. However, when competing against a government, then there is a power imbalance and the government can use its power to oppress the people. Therefore, the people should have the right to rebel against such a government.
What does it mean to be politically correct? Political correctness, often shortened to PC, is defined as agreeing with the idea that people should be careful not to use language or behave in a way that could offend a particular group of people. However, through generations of usage by the American government and the nation as a whole, it is obvious that this type of censorship is only a curtain for people to hide behind their real thoughts on “offensive” matters, such as sexuality and race. Many people argue that political correctness is a destructive force, one built on the foundational belief that by avoiding certain topics, the offensiveness of them will disappear entirely. It is because we as a nation are fearful of what we say, write, think, and especially of using the wrong words that may be denounced as insensitive, racist, sexist, or homophobic, that we give political correctness an unintentional, threatening power.
It violates individual liberties. Freedom of choice is a right that many Americans firmly stand up for. By taking away this liberty, citizens can feel resentment towards the governmnet and even towards the armed forces. 2.It can cause civil unrest. It won't be just those who are forced to enlist who will harbor negative opinions about the government and military.
In today’s society think about what if equality was not a law and consider what if there was no one to fight for equality in America. If there was no such thing as equality then no race would be equal to another. Also everyone would be treated different and be discriminated by a certain group of race. Not having equality would change the country because there would be no way of life because a certain group would think something is right while another group would disagree with the group's beliefs. This would change history because the leaders would have not say or take action for what they believe in.
When they both decide to go against the government, it is solely because both think that government prevents the Transcendentalist lifestyle. This lifestyle, means that one is exempt from taxes or any other enforced laws and regulations, as a Transcendentalist disagrees with the very core of the state. So, under the guise of moral responsibility, civil disobedience is a way to act for their own personal gain. McCandless has a distaste for government, having strong views on various politicians, many of which he dislikes. His political leanings are reminiscent of Thoreau’s essay ‘On Duty of Civil Disobedience’, and can be summed up with, “ ‘I heartily accept the motto - ‘That
When people are about to make fun of religions or looks they should stop, and think about how they would feel if a person said the same to them. As the old saying goes “Treat others how you want to be treated”. America is known as the “Land of the free, and the home of the brave”. We wouldn't really be “free” if we couldn't even voice our own thoughts. Yes, people should be more aware of others feelings.
