    As everyone in the world should know, the world isn't clear-cut and simple to read. The world is not just black and white. There is no real absolute truth in anything because the issue of what is right and wrong can vary widely between one person and the next. This fact is what makes our world so dynamic; it is what enables us to grow and learn and change. However, because of this blur in what people perceive is right or wrong, or in what someone thinks is one thing and another person thinks is ...

    Living in a free society is a benefit as well detraction. In our country the First Amendment of the constitution gives us freedom of speech. However this right to free speech comes with the sacrifice of having to hear opinions that are repugnant to the majority. So we have the incongruous situation, like oil and water, of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) defending the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). The ACLU defends our First Amendment right to free speech, as well as our other rights. The ACLU go...

    1,300 words
    Philosophy Ethical Theories Topic 1 An argument can be made that Major League Baseball s decision to suspend John Rocker from baseball due to his expressing bigoted views in a magazine interview is not right. This argument states that free speech is an important moral value, and since John Rocker has the right to free speech, suspending him for expressing his bigoted views violates the spirit of free speech. Therefore, his suspension was uncalled for because all he was doing was expressing one o...

    The first amendment to the constitution guarantees the right of free speech and of the press. Unfortunately, some individuals have used this right to protect themselves from litigation when they produce material that is pornographic, hateful or when they use ethically questionable methods when reporting a story. The government has attempted to intervene through passing laws and imposing regulations. The problem with placing restrictions on free speech is that the question of who will decide what...

    Free Speech: Is There Really Such a Thing? In order to find truth to anything, one must make multiple suggestions, ask many questions, and sometimes ponder the unspeakable. Without doing so, there would be no process of elimination; therefore, truth would be virtually unattainable. Now, in our attempts to either find truth, express our beliefs and opinions, or generally use the rights we are given constitutionally, we are often being criticized and even reprimanded. Our freedom to voice our opin...

This paper based in Memphis, Tennessee allowed Ida to learn, by research, the details of lynching. Her energetic campaign for truth and justice gave her a lot of attention to fuel her crusade.

  • Cultural Sensitivity Free Speech

    Resolved-When they conflict, respect for cultural sensitivity ought to be valued above commercial use of free speech. Observation 1: The wording of the resolution implies a multi-cultural society. Observation 2: The resolution implies a capitalist society because there would be no use for commercial free speech otherwise. My first contention is that cultural sensitivity can be a means for one culture to imply there view of morality on another. This is not extreme for this resolution for this rea...

    Ever since the September 11 th attacks over a year ago, I've been concerned with the way our colleges, government, and even individual citizens have been handling the way people have been dealing with their animosity toward certain people. The right of free speech is a right we take for granted. Even though we are expected to pull together during times of crisis, not everyone does-and this is why the fine line separating our rights from pushing ideals on others, becomes very fuzzy. On one side, ...
