Media Censorship
Media Censorship Censorship of the media is a hotly contested topic that has spawned a controversial outcry from the public. The public has also declared that there is excessive violence portrayed on television and that this violence ultimately negatively affects viewers, especially children. Hence, there exists a double-edged sword. Censorship is the regulation and control of information and ideas that are circulated among people within a society. It refers to the examination of electronic and

Our morals are a simple set of rules and guidelines that help us make decisions throughout our lives, both big and small.

Looking through the eyes of a modern-day woman, I can say that I have yet to meet a man that has even come close to the likes of Sir Lancelot. Observing Morte Darthur more close

The problem is that I see far too many problems, yet offer few answers. Today’s educational systems seem so trendy and political.

nichomachean ethics In Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle starts by explaining why people do what they do. Every action is the means to a greater end. Each end in turn can be seen as a means to an even greater end. A man makes horse shoes, the means, so he can shoe his horse, the end. He shoes his horse, the means, so he can ride into town, the end. So it goes until the ultimate end is reached, happiness. He is careful to explain that not all of these acts are good and just, saying we must examine th

Nietzsche Morality
Nietzsche Morality “Nietzsche: morality; “How ought I to be?” Nietzsche abhorred all morality; he felt it is fodder for the mindless masses (the herd). It deadens and destroys the individual, condemns creativity, and gives man no credit to make choices. It assumes man can not know what to do, so it lays down pre-made decisions for him to mindlessly follow. It ignores the nature of human instinct and stifles the growth of mankind. Moralists and philosophers both sought an order for the universe a

In fact, arguments may be made that other Near Eastern texts, particularly Sumerian, have had their influences in Bibli
