  • The Branded Mother and her Throwaway Child
    The Branded Mother and her Throwaway Child The Branded Mother and her Throwaway Child The Scarlet Letter is a story of hypocrisy and punishment. The strict Puritan laws made adultery a sin punishable by death or a life of misery. Although being an unwed mother or an illegitimate child is no longer a crime leading to capitol punishment, the treatment of welfare mothers and their children is similar to the treatment Hester an Pearl received in Hawthorne’s novel. Hester and Pearl are prime examples
  • Communism The Ideal Society
    Communism The Ideal Society Communism-The Ideal Society? Society is flawed. There are critical imbalances in it that are causing much of humanity to suffer. I suppose that this would be the driving force behind humanitys relentless search to plan and create a perfect society. An essential part of having an unflawed society would be having a perfect government. Throughout history, we have always strived to find different types of governments that would work more efficiently and more fairly for t

    The Case For The Defence InDepth Review My fascination with the Judicial System Structure of today\'s society was furthered and strengthened after reading and analyzing the works of Edward Greenspan. This superbly written biography recollecting past cases and important events in Greenspan\'s life allowed myself, the reader, to learn more about Jurisprudence and the Criminal Code. The entire casebook revolves around several main themes including the balance of Positive & Natural influences in th
  • Justinian
    Justinian By the end of the Byzantine reign the culture was composed of Greek, Roman, European (Christian) and Islamic elements. Although a synthesis of the four was evident, Christianity was always the dominant force in the thoughts of man, due mainly to the enforcement by the State. Visigoths did not sack the Eastern Empire in the fifth century; therefore the Empire and its policies remained intact unlike the west. The fifth century was a critical time in the Eastern Empire\'s history, for thi
  • Slavery in Greece Rome and Africa
    Slavery in Greece Rome and Africa The issue of slavery has been debated since its early inception. In recent times, there has been considerable debate as to the definition of slavery. Western scholars have attempted to justify slavery of the New World by comparing it to the slavery that existed in Biblical times as well as Greco-Roman and African slavery. Some argue that there can be no international definition of slavery. Others try to define by a few words that apply to every instance of slave
  • Courts as legislators
    courts as legislators Courts As Legislators The purpose of this paper is to show that although not originally intended to, some our modern day courts in the United States have in essence become legislators. I will give a brief overview of the history of courts and site some cases where the decisions handed down or the opinions of the court have set precedent in the way the law is understood and enforced. As long as man has been on this earth there have been conflicts or disputes that needed to b

  • The Civil Rights Cases
    The Civil Rights Cases The Civil Rights Act of 1875 was an effort of the Post-Civil War Congresses to enforce civil rights throughout the United States. It was a part of the Reconstructionists to eliminate racial discrimination throughout the United States and this Act was one form to attempt to accomplish this. They took the authority to pass this Act from Section 5 of the 14th Amendment. They interpreted that section to allow the Congress the power to define as well as enforce the rights estab
  • Adam Smith
    Adam Smith Keeley Sloan Adam Smith Adam Smith was born in 1723. The age of humanism and reason, in other words the age of greed and corruption associated with dreadful living conditions. At the age of about fifteen, Smith proceeded to Glasgow University, studying moral philosophy under Francis Hutcheson. In 1740 he entered Balliol College, Oxford, but the Oxford of his time gave little if any help towards what was to be his lifework, and he left 1746. In 1748 he began delivering public lectures
  • Buck v Bell
    Buck v Bell People make decisions throughout their everyday lives whether they are good or bad. Parents make the decisions for their children. Parents do this in order for their children to live better lives. If a parent made decisions that could potentially hurt their child, they would be considered unfit parents. Therefore, parents are put in situations that force them to do what is “morally” right. The point being made is that people interpret morals differently than other people. How can one

The Puritans departed for the New World due to their beliefs that the Church of England was hopelessly corrupt and no longer stood for their way of life. They felt that they could create an ideal Christian society in a New World, which would be a model for others to follow.

  • Nothing5
    nothing5 In 1717, Bishop Hoadly told King George I, "Whoever hath an absolute authority to interpret written or spoken laws; it is he who is truly the lawgiver to all intents and purposes and not the person who wrote or spoke them (Pollack, 153)." Early sentiments similar these have blossomed into a large scale debate over which branch of our government has the power to overturn laws that do not follow the foundations of our democratic system; the constitution. In this paper I will discuss the h
  • Russian Romantic Music and Tchaikovsky
    Russian Romantic Music and Tchaikovsky Russian Romantic Music and Tchaikovsky Russian music bears its own styles and emotions, free from the outside influence of other European countries during the Romantic period. Politics play an indirect role in the development of Russian music, isolating the country both politically and musically. Until the Decembrist revolt in 1825, Russia was under the unrelenting rule of czars. Russia retained the ways of the old -- its caste system, its severity of censo
  • Woodrow Wilson
    Woodrow Wilson Thomas Woodrow Wilson was born in Staunton, Va., on Dec. 28, 1856. He was profoundly influenced by a devoutly religious household headed by his father, Joseph Ruggles Wilson, a Presbyterian minister, and his mother, Janet Woodrow Wilson, the daughter of a minister. Woodrow attended (1873-74) Davidson College and in 1875 entered the College of New Jersey graduating in 1879.

    Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky "Tchaikovsky is not only one of the corner stones of Russian musical culture and world music…. It\'s at the same time creative and technical encyclopedia to which every Russian has reference in the course of his own work" (Cross and Ewen, 1025), said Dimitri Shostakovich. Peter Iltich Tchaikovsky is considered one of the best composers of all time. In this paper you will see how Tchaikovsky\'s life was difficult and memorable. Peter Tchaikovsky was born in Votinsk, in the
  • Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
    Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is in my opinion one of the greatest classical music composers of all time. He also had one of the most interesting lives I have ever read about. Although he suffered through a large enormity of emotional problems and nervous breakdowns, along with having to deal with harsh instances of love and death, his music reflects these emotions in a very beautiful way. Tchaikovsky (also spelled Chaikovsky or Tschaikovsky, and often referred to as Peter),

  • Can We Do We Should We
    Can We Do We Should We Can we, do we, and should we legislate morality is a question that rings in the ears of many Americans. It seems that there are more factors, conditions and answers to this frequently asked question than the common person is willing to consider. Let’s attempt to take the best ideas from the top scholars on the issue. In order to answer the questions presented, one must fully understand the idea of morality and what it means to legislate it. What is morality? According to W

  • Laws of War
    Laws of War The term "laws of war" refers to the rules governing the actual conduct of armed conflict. This idea that there actually exists rules that govern war is a difficult concept to understand. The simple act of war in and of itself seems to be in violation of an almost universal law prohibiting one human being from killing another. But during times of war murder of the enemy is allowed, which leads one to the question, "if murder is permissible then what possible "laws of war" could there
  • THE SEPARTION OF POWERS
    THE SEPARTION OF POWERS POLITICAL SCIENCE COURSEWORK THE SEPARATION OF POWERS It has proved true, historically, that there is a natural tendency of governments to assume as much power as possible. To prevent this from happening in the United States, the framers of the Constitution divided the functions of the federal government among three branches: the executive branch, legislature or the lawmaking branch and the judiciary. These should be separate and enjoy equal power and independence. This s

    Its Not About School Prayer The question of school prayer has been moved from one of the storage rooms way beyond the wings to somewhere prominently on stage, if not front stage and center. The most important thing about the discussion of a school prayer amendment is not school prayer as such. People of eminently good sense and religious conviction can disagree about whether there should be prayer in public schools and, if so, what kind of prayer and who should be in charge of it. Those decision
  • Puritan Ideology
    Puritan Ideology Puritans have had some bad press throughout the years. Often they have been ridiculed by Christians and seculars alike for their seemingly legalism and hypocritical attitude, but they also had some of the most interesting beliefs of the early religious groups. "They sought an intellectual, moral, and spiritual "clean-up" of institutionalized Christianity. Their standard of purity was the Bible. The most comprehensive, but concise articulation of their ideology is the Westminster

Methodology in the History This period, which deals with the world the Indians knew before the arrival of European explorers, poses difficulties flowing mostly from the lack of the usual evidentiary foundation for doing history: written documents (for example, letters, speeches, treaties, constitutions, laws, books, newspapers, magazines, almanacs). This lack need not be a major obstacle to historical study, however. Indeed, one of the most important thin
