Scientology: Its Origins Term Paper

… This is where the image of scientology as a cult comes from.

It is true that people who have joined scientology have been witnessed to withdraw more and more from society and more toward the members of the religion. In fact, scientology teaches people to be paranoid of the outside world, believing drug companies, psychiatrists, and financiers to be trying to control the general populace while reporting to even more remote and sinister masters. Further, once adherents to scientology have become thoroughly brainwashed into the religion, they reach the mental state known in scientology as "clear." In the clear state, they are told the story of Xenu, a warrior who gathered up all of the excess population of this sector of the galaxy, brought them…. [read more]

Scientology Term Paper

… Scientology may be one of the most controversial modern religions, its late founder L. Ron Hubbard one of modern history's most contentious writers and spiritual leaders. The Church of Scientology was founded in 1954 but the origins of its doctrine can be traced back to Hubbard's 1950 publication Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. Dianetics became an unexpected best seller, and its success propelled its author to sudden fame. The Dianetics book does not squarely address the topic of religion but reads more like a self-help book that addresses issues like insecurity and self-doubt. The official Dianetics Web site copy illustrates the tone and content of Hubbard's seminal work: "there is a single source of all your problems, stress, unhappiness and self-doubt. it's called….

Career Opportunities in Business Term Paper

IV Corporate Document Analysis

For this comparison, I picked up mortgage pamphlets, one from HSBC and the other from Bank of America. Perhaps it is worth noting that I also tried Citibank but they did not even have pamphlets available - a communication in its own right. Both pamphlets were in the lobby of the branch, available to anyone who walked in.

The Bank of America pamphlet is small, and almost entirely red on the front cover. This did not, however, help grab my attention as there were other pamphlets and the were all in the same color scheme. The size of the pamphlet was also a drawback, since not only does it not make a visual impact but…. [read more]

Dombrowsky "Disaster" as a Trigger Essay

… Therefore, the law is being guided by a mirage of situations that do not necessarily meet the requirement of an actual disaster. The term is used merely to set up a process of works which will then interpret future "disasters."

Since there exist many specific risks and hazards (many of them self-made, for example, by chemical and/or oil companies, or airports with aircraft risk), the State cannot possibly devise a plan of action to cover all of them in one fell swoop. Therefore, the State requires each company to establish a specific plan for any disaster that might be foreseeable. The preparation for disaster must be fully realized before any company whose risks and hazards qualify for "disaster" status can operate legally.

Wikileaks Research Paper

… Assange was also one of the first to hack into U.S. military computer system, as well as NASA, the National Security Agency, Los Alamos nuclear laboratories, and defense contractors like Lockheed and TRW. Arrested by the Australian National Police in 1991, he was let off with a small fine and a warning (Fowler 11). Later, he hacked into the Church of Scientology, which he believed was an elitist, authoritarian organization, and also obtained an early encryption system known as Pretty Good Privacy that the U.S. government was attempting to ban in the 1990s. In 2006, Assange joined with a radical organization in Seattle called Riseup that provided "a secure network to help his nascent WikiLeaks organization communicate with its supporters around the world" (Fowler 45).….

World Religions Essay

… ¶ … Hindu influences in America.

Although the United States did not receive Asian immigrants in large numbers until the twentieth century, Hinduism has had a deep and lasting influence on American culture, politics, and social life. The most notable example of how Hinduism has indirectly affected the United States is the influence of Mahatma Gandhi on Martin Luther King, Jr. In the late 1950s and early 1960s. In the late 1960s, the hippie movement embraced Hinduism via the Beatles and other cultural icons. From that social movement, Hinduism began to influence American culture via alternative spiritualities, the New Age movement, and widespread interest in yoga and meditation. Hinduism has left a distinct mark on American society and culture.

Charles Manson Term Paper

… ¶ … Charles Manson and his criminal activity. Specifically it will discuss how the various theoretical schools of crime causation would attempt to explain Charles Manson's criminal behavior. Charles Manson is one of the world's most notorious murderers, and quite possibly the most bizarre, too. While he never actually murdered anyone during the Tate/LaBianca murders in 1969, he was the mastermind behind the murders, and the leader of the "Manson Family" members who committed them. Several different theories of crime causation apply to Manson and his criminal behavior, and most of them relate to his upbringing and early life.

In order to understand the criminology theories that apply to Charles Manson, it is necessary to look at his life, beginning with his birth and childhood.…. [read more]

Sociological Debate Between Scientific Knowledge Term Paper

… Since these beliefs cannot be disproved, there is no legitimate reason to doubt their validity.

On a broader scale, religious knowledge has formed the basis for many cultures since the dawn of time. As soon as Einstein's theory of relativity became "scientific knowledge," the paradigm of sociology and philosophy were changed. It is apparent that gaining knowledge and understanding is not a static process, nor based on a set of unchanging laws. Rather, knowledge is based solely on the interpretations of those seeking that knowledge, and on the community in which they live (Jones, 2001). While the debate over the use of religious and scientific knowledge will continue throughout time, it is clear that both types of knowledge have a vast impact on any society.…. [read more]
