Mill and U.S. Constitution None Research Paper

… By the beginning of the Civil War, there were over four million slaves in the U.S. And this institution was more profitable than ever. Even after it was officially destroyed in 1865, it continued in everything but name, usually in the form of sharecropping and tenant farming in the South that left most blacks in absolute poverty.

Although Thomas Jefferson was in Paris at the time the Constitution was written, he was on the whole skeptical of granting too much power to the central government, and politically skilled enough to rally Western farmers to join an Antifederalist coalition with the Southern planters in the 1790s. Jefferson was always a paradoxical character, given his deep hostility to banks, factories and corporations, but at the same time…. [read more]


Difficulty, Wealthy White American Settlers Term Paper

… My fellow slaves were five transports more,

With eighteen negroes which is twenty four,

Besides four transport women in the house,

To wait upon his daughter and his spouse.

We and the negroes both alike did fare,

Of work and food we had an equal share,

And in a piece of ground called our own,

The food we eat first by ourselves is sown.

No other time to us they will allow,

But on a Sunday we the same must do,

Six days we slave for our master's good,

The seventh is to produce our homely food,

And when we a hard day's work have done,

Away unto the mill we must be gone, 'Till twelve or one o'clock a grinding corn,

And must be…. [read more]


Illegal Immigrants in the U.S Term Paper

… ¶ … illegal immigrants in the U.S. And the possibility of legalizing their status. The article shows: how illegal immigration is currently being dealt with, the views of people on the issue and the flexibility being exhibited by the government. The author makes it clear that while illegal immigration has always been a problem for the country and most people feel country must be protected against such immigration, still illegal entrance into the U.S. should not be criminalized. Very few, if any, percentage of people interviewed supported felony status, the rest felt that while it was not correct to let illegal immigration prosper, there was also no particular need for categorized it as a crime or serious offence.

Illegal immigration is a problem, which the…. [read more]


Major Problems in the Early Republic 1787-1848 Essay

… ¶ … Republic, 1787-1848

Racial, economic, and social elitism in 19th century America

Although America was a land founded on the principles of liberty and democracy in theory, elite, wealthy, and aristocratic males have often dominated the institutions of its government. When we speak of the 'Founding Fathers' it is important to remember that all them were white, property-owning males and until Andrew Jackson assumed the presidency, they envisioned control of the government remaining in the hands of people much like themselves. One of the most profound, motivating philosophies behind the structure of the United States Constitution was the fear that certain factions might gain popular sway over the institutions of government -- hence the need for checks and balances to make even democratic institutions….

Street Gangs and Loitering Laws Essay

… " Here, Gates was saying that Black people are not normal people and that Black people have a radically different anatomy than white people. It's no wonder that he allowed Nazi style tactics to be implemented in minority neighborhoods.

The current proposal to enact a law wherein suspected gang members could be arrested for loitering would reopen the wounds that were created in the late eighties. Allowing police to arrest anyone who dresses a certain way or who talks a certain way is an attack on American civil liberties. John Stuart Mill, a nineteenth century political philosopher puts it best.

It is now perceived that such phrases as "self-government," and "the power of the people over themselves." Do not express the true state of the…. [read more]


Politics Term Paper

… From 1979 through 1988, Ecuador staggered through a succession of executive-legislative confrontations that created a near permanent crisis atmosphere in the polity. In 1984, President Leon Febres-Cordero tried to physically bar new Congressionally-appointed Supreme Court appointees from taking their seats. "Parliamentary government avoids the problems associated with presidentialism since it mandates a degree of cooperation between the executive and legislature if either are to remain in office, and it also allows for a change in leadership without precipitating a crisis of state."

Presidential systems are said by critics not to offer voters the kind of accountability seen in parliamentary systems. It is easy for either the president or Congress to escape blame by blaming the other. Describing the United States, former Treasury Secretary C. Douglas…. [read more]


James Goodman's Stories of Scottsboro Term Paper

… ¶ … Scottsboro

On March 25th, 1931 nine African-American boys, none of them more than 19 years of age, most illiterate, two severely ill and one partially blind, left home in and jumped aboard a freight train heading for Alabama in search of work. It was the Depression era and many people (blacks, whites and hoboes) used these trains for transportation going from town to town seeking employment that virtually was nonexistent. During this era, racial tension was surmountable, people desperate to survive and finding no outlet. This simple train ride would forever change these boys' lives and new precedents in our Constitution would make this day historic.

As the boys were on the train, they were not alone; four white boys were on the…. [read more]


What Is Distinctive About Black Feminist Thought? Essay

… Black Fem. Thought

A History of Alienation: Distinctions in Black Feminist Thought

Several distinctions abound in Black feminist thought that differentiate it from virtually any other type of other feminist theory, as well as from traditional patriarchal notions of social concepts. The historical accounting of such women plays a large role in determining their ideologies. Whether originally from Africa, the Caribbean, or even from parts of Asia (Carby, 1982 p.212), Black women have endured a level of subjugation that cannot be stratified in the typical categories that a social, ethnic, or economic group is usually grouped in. Whether held in bondage in America, sexually or socially repressed in various countries in Africa, or condescended upon during their initial foray to England and to other parts…. [read more]


American President Research Paper

… ¶ … history of this country, efforts have been made to expand the power of the presidency, both intentional and unintentional. In 1798, for example, Congress enacted, and President John Adams signed, a series of laws that, together, became known as the Alien and Sedition Acts. Among other things, these acts gave the president the power to deport alien individuals during peacetime and, in an affront to the First Amendment, define treason, including in certain writings. Later, President Lincoln seized on fear generated by the U.S. Civil War to three times suspend the writ of habeas corpus. Twentieth Century presidents have been even more willing to expand their power. Presidents Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Nixon, and Reagan all took steps to broaden the role of the…. [read more]


California History US Essay

… Spanish Influence on California From 1542 Through the Early 1800s

In 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, a Portuguese navigator sailing for the Spanish Crown, sailed from western Mexico north to San Diego Bay, claiming the "Island of California" (he was mistaken) for Spain.

Though many more expeditions by several other European countries followed over the next 100 years or so, none resulted in any permanent settlements. The truth is that, until the late 1700s, there was precious little that the Spanish could influence in California.

The Spanish King, Carlos III, decided that Spain would have to physically occupy California or risk losing it. In 1697, the Jesuit missionary Juan Maria de Salvatierra established the first permanent mission in Baja California Sur, which was part of New…. [read more]


Plays of Ben Jonson Essay

… Ben Jonson

Intertextualities: The Influence of the Classics in Ben Jonson's Volpone

Ben Jonson is a writer who was deeply influenced by earlier novels in both themes and structures. In the opening of the Prologue to Volpone, the play of interest in this paper, Jonson invokes Horace and Aristotle, promising to "mix profit with your pleasure" and to observe the "laws of Time, Place, Persons"

what is known as classical decorum. There are plenty of critics who see a balance in Jonson's work, as he invokes the classics when and where he deems it appropriate to the contexts of his writings. There are other critics, however, that would argue that Jonson not only based his work on classics, but essentially copied them. While this is…. [read more]

Husserl, Language and Consciousness: Reconciliation Term Paper

… Phenomenology has lent itself particularly well to applications in psychology, psychiatry, and in the behavioral sciences generally. Furthermore, phenomenology has found its way into logic and mathematics, literary criticism, law and jurisprudence, and other disciplines. (Koestenbaum, 1967)

Koestenbaum states that in order that Husserl's view be made intelligible "one must grant a number of important but suppressed premises. Attacks, actual and possible ones from non-phenomenological sources are usually directed at these suppressed premises. No serious attempt it made here to defend these premises but pointing out their existence facilitate she elucidation of Husserl's doctrines." (1967)

Koestenbaum states that the first premise must be "…that there are two current philosophical methodologies: philosophy is either the description and analysis of language, or correlatively that of experience. The…. [read more]


Capital Punishment Analyzed by Utilitarian Ethics and Kantian Research Paper

… Death Penalty Philosophy

Capital Punishment Analyzed by Utilitarian Ethics & Kantian Ethics

The death penalty is the most extreme of punitive consequences, with its application representing the greatest of finalities in law enforcement and criminal sentencing. An issue which has garnered intense debate for decades and which has divided individuals along party lines and philosophical dispositions, the use of capital punishment is defended by its advocates as an effective way to deter violent crime and as a critically potent way to punish the worst of offenders. Its critics regard it as barbaric, unconstitutional or generally a violation of human rights. The United States is the only Western democracy in the world which still employs the death penalty in its criminal justice system. A careful analysis…. [read more]


George Eliot Kristeva's Philosophy Term Paper

… Mr Barton had not the gift of perfect accuracy in English orthography and syntax, which was unfortunate, as he was known not to be a Hebrew scholar, and not in the least suspected of being an accomplished Grecian. These lapses, in a man who had gone through the Eleusinian mysteries of a university education, surprised the young ladies of his parish extremely; especially the Misses Farquhar, whom he had once addressed in a letter as Dear Mads., apparently an abbreviation for Madams. The persons least surprised at the Rev. Amos's deficiencies were his clerical brethren, who had gone through the mysteries themselves. (59)

Kristeva would say that Amos is separated from the softness of life. He is unaware of the maternal body. Disregarding the very…. [read more]


Compare and Contrast 3 Philosophical Works Term Paper

… Social Contract

Jean Jacques Rousseau's work 'Social Contract' occupies a very significant place in the political discourse of 19th century France. It did not present something very new or different than previously held beliefs but definitely encompassed some original concepts including the idea of general will and the elusive lawgiver. Rousseau's rejection of social contract was grounded in the premise that by contracting with a man or assembly of men, individuals are forced to part with some of their natural liberty. In other words while he knew that freedom was compromised to an extent with social contracts were entered into, but he maintained that the relinquished freedom should be social freedom and not natural freedom. Those who argue that Rousseau was against social contract theory…. [read more]


Democracy and Representative Government Central Term Paper

… In 1899, The Hague Court was held and in 1907 the Hague International Peace Conference followed with the intent of defusing the building warmongering through disarmament. The countries who attended the conference worried that if they disarmed, someone would see it as an opportunity to gain the advantage, and initiate warfare. Germany was in a place to imitate the conflict, and did so in 1914 by declaring war on Russia. Their action was at least partially motivated by a fear that Russia would have time to rearm itself after years of internal civil war.

Nationalism's contribution

The creation of CUSTA sparked interest from Mexico. The free trading area or FTA spanned greater than 360 million people, and $6 trillion in annual output. NAFTA may also be considered a link to two of the largest trading partners to the U.S.: namely Mexico and Canada.

George Eliot and Feminism Term Paper

… ' The women who inhabited Britain's past lived in physical, mental, and social conditions that prohibited the writing of great literature. Eliot asserts that just like men, women need time, space, financial security, education, support and acceptance from others, and stamina in order to write well. While none of these amenities were even remotely available to the women in British history, Eliot notes that the women portrayed in literature were not really given character and personality.

In the sixteenth century for a woman to have lived a life of freedom being a poet, playwright or writer would mean nervous stress and dilemma, which would have probably killed her. Had she survived, whatever she had written would have been twisted and deformed, issuing from a strained…. [read more]


Technology -- Blessing or Curse? Building Term Paper

… Technology -- blessing or curse?

Building a better mousetrap, or using technology to solve the world's problems has become reduced to even a more absurd exercise through what Siva Vaidhyanathan calls in his 2007 introduction to Rewiring the Nation: The Place of Technology in American Studies "techno-fundamentalism." This is the idea the problems created by past machines can be fixed by future machines. For example, the lack of world security generated by nuclear technology can be solved by Star Wars rather than a conscientious effort to reduce nuclear proliferation. This belief in progress as inevitable and good is misguided, says the author. Technology is only as great as the morality and spirit of the society that wields the technology.

Video technology, when put into the…. [read more]


Latin American History Essay

… When Bello was installed as rector of the University of Chile in 1843, he gave an address praising the liberal, humanistic spirit of the Renaissance and Enlightenment. Modernity and progress began when the "intellectual heritage of Greece and Rome" was "reclaimed by the human spirit after a long era of darkness" (Bello 53). After one thousand years of feudalism, science, morality and politics began to advance again, proving that humanistic learning and cultivated minds were essential for the progress and happiness of society. Although Bello strongly supported the provision of primary and elementary education to the lower classes, he did not believe it possible to educate the masses without first training an educated elite, because "where science and letters do not exist, elementary instruction cannot….

Max Weber's Protestant Ethic Term Paper

… ¶ … Protestant Ethic" and the Evolution of Capitalism

Maximilian Weber was one of the most influential German political economists and sociologists. He began his career at the University of Berlin and later worked at other universities throughout Germany. He was one of Germany's negotiators that the treaty of Versailles and also played a role in drafting the Weimar constitution (Weber, Marianne 1988). The following will explore Weber's contribution to theories on the development of capitalism. The primary source for argument will be Weber's most controversial work, " The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism," written in 1905.

Weber's key thesis is that religion is largely responsible for the different cultures and economic systems of Europe and the orient. He argued that the Protestant…. [read more]


William Howard Taft Essay

… The Courts allow for an outlet to help decide important cases relative to Constitutional laws and regulations and are therefore powerful policy makers in their own right. The U.S. Court of Appeals acts to change political and public policy just as much as any other mechanism for change within the U.S. democratic framework of government. Although the Evarts Act had allowed some use of judicial discretion, in 1925, over 80% of Supreme Court cases were still under mandatory review, and by 1918 it had "fallen more than a year behind schedule" (Provine, 1980, p. 11). In 1922 Chief Justice William Howard Taft lobbied Congress for legislation that established the Conference of Senior Circuit Judges, which is today known as the Judicial Conference of the United….

Oscar Wilde, Rebellion of His Themes Thesis

… Oscar Wilde, Rebellion of His Themes and Morality in Comparison to the Society of the Time

The objective of this work is to discuss the central image of Oscar Wilde, both conformist and rebel and the extent to which his work contains an inherent contradiction, and specifically in his pointing out the folly of his contemporary society and his expression of values that were contrary to the social norm or that which was expected within society and simultaneously his work being published, performed and appreciated within that society. This work will discuss the central image of Wilde as a figure of contradiction and paradox.

Reality within the view of Wilde is one without a consistent value as he blurs his edges and hides behind a…. [read more]


John Grierson the Documentary Film Developed Term Paper

… John Grierson

The documentary film developed alongside the narrative film, though largely during the sound era. It was shaped most profoundly during the 1930s as filmmakers began to record sociological an anthropological studies of different populations. Some of the early films were treated much as narrative films were and were widely released in theaters, achieving some popularity. In the early 1930s, this included such films as Nanook of the North and Moana, both by Robert Flaherty. These films were different not only because they presented real people in real situations but because they were filmed on real locations and not in studios. The silent film had sometimes gone outside the confines of the studio, but the advent of sound tied the camera to the soundstage…. [read more]
