Sara is constantly giving reason for her actions but they aren't in the same legal capacity as a judge. Both sets of authors also see the law in reference to structured improvisation. They both refer to it in the sense that we do what is best for ourselves but that what we have to choose from is structured. For example, Sara Lane improvises a lot of the activities in her...

    No degree of persecution complex on the part of the Northern Territory Chief Minister, Mr. Denis Burke, can change the fact that the death of a 15-year old Aboriginal, Johnno Warramarrba, is a result of the territory s draconian sentencing laws. People will rub their hands with glee and say Burke s got blood on his hands because of mandatory sentencing, Mr. Burke said. It was the lowest of the low to suggest that Mr. Warramarrba had died because of mandatory sentencing, he complained. Mr. Burke...

    ON 9 th JULY 1797 the statesman and the philosopher Edmund Burke died, after having contracted stomach cancer. He was buried in Beaconsfield Church near his Buckinghamshire home. Burke had been a distinguished Member of Parliament but never attained high office. His political career must be judged a failure.

  • Rousseau Negative Change
    273 words
    Rousseau believed that an impartial "legislator" would be needed to come into a society in order to implement positive change, while blaming the original negative change on "divine intervention." In this essay I will prove that divine intervention is not the only explanation for this original negative change as well as how a "legislator", is not the only option or even the best option to implement positive societal change. Rousseau's unwillingness to offer any other explanation s for these pheno...

    "Nearly everyone has some conception of religion. In fact, sometimes it appears that there are as many definitions of it as there are people" (Schmidt 9). Not only does each person have his or her own way of defining religion; each person has his or her own way of practicing religion. Studying these different practices can be difficult. There have been many people who have studied religion and through many different methods. While some people share similar findings, each person has his or her o...

  • Jon Benet Burke Ramseys Note
    1,455 words
    After looking over all of the evidence in the Jon Benet Ramsey murder case it is clear to me that the Ramsey family murdered Jon Benet. I think that Burke, her older brother, did the actually killing, but his mother in father aided in the coverup of the crime. This was the only theory that could make sense to me when considering all the suspects, especially John and Patsy Ramsey. It was obvious to me that they were involved but the only way that things truly added up were if Burke did the actual...

    Literature consists of many categories. The short story, the novel, and the poem are examples of these categories. Literature is more often then not a means of exposition for a central point, or theme, through symbolism. Poetry is the arrangement of these symbols and carefully metered language to convey a point. Many poets use their poetry as not only a means of conveying a theme, but also as a way of exploring their souls. Walt Whitman is one of these poets. Whitman has many themes in his work...

    James Burke's video "Credit Where It's Due" does a great job of illustrating the social causes and effects leading up to the Industrial Revolution, but that is all it does. In fact, while watching this video, I had to frequently remind myself that this was part of a course called "History of Science," and not "History of English Society." Where's the science? Well, I now realize that there simply wasn't any, or at least not very much in 18 th century England. These people were simply too busy ma...

    Sources Essay #1 Abbe de Sieyes, Olympe de Gouges, and Edmund Burke were all concerned about the future of France.

Sieyes and Gouges were for the revolution, while Burke was against it. Sieyes repres...
