  • Unused Urinal In The Restroom
    749 words
    It was easy to empathize with Andy Dufresne and the other prisoners in The Shawshank Redemption as they suffered in their prison cells, I suffered while watching the movie. It was not because I disliked the film far from it. But while the prisoners in the movie were serving their sentences in Shawshank Prison, I served my own three hour sentence for drinking five cups of fruit punch before entering the theatre. When the credits finally began to scroll, I strode quickly to the men's room, opened ...
  • Will Of The Majority
    418 words
    Property cannot be made secure by natural right alone, and for the better securing of their properties men have entered into civil society. The will of the body politic, when formed, is determined by the will of the majority, and of a bare majority if there be no different express agreement. For this Locke does not give any reason but the necessity of the case; it is certain that much worse ones have been given. As a matter of fact, we now know that a majority vote has not been generally recogni...
  • Crime Costs Americans
    285 words
    Americans are scared, and they are angry. The scary orgy of violent crime has made average citizens afraid to walk the streets in front of their homes. And this fear has fueled a public cry to end the killing fields in America. Americans have had enough, and they want to know why known criminals were let back out on the streets so they could kill Polly Klaas and James Jordan. In America, the crime clock continues to click: one murder every 22 minutes, one rape every 5 minutes, one robbery every ...
  • Scars On One's Morality
    415 words
    In John Steinbeck's classic novel The Winter of Our Discontent, one can find many general truths and principles, also known as aphorisms. Ethan Allen Hawley, the main character, seems to gift the reader with another aphorism at the turn of every page, but some of these sayings may be considered more remarkable than others. One of the more noteworthy aphorisms is a statement made by Ethan at the end of chapter 6: "To be alive at all is to have scars". While this may not be the theme that Steinbec...

  • Issue Of The Morality Of Capital Punishment
    1,674 words
    It has always been a belief for some that if another person wrongs them, they should have the right to take revenge against that person. In the present day, this view still remains, but has been toned down by laws that state the rights of the accused and have developed punishments for offenders. Many, myself included, still believe that those punishments are not harsh enough and allow criminals to take advantage of them, knowing that if caught, the punishment is not near enough to make it wise t...
  • Miville's World
    920 words
    Possible swords The Scar China Miville 604 pp, Macmillan There is a certain unlovely pomposity about the use of one-line paragraphs. Look at me, the line says: I am so clever, or atmospheric, that it would be a waste to tack me on to the end of the previous sentence, where I might not get the reader's full attention. I deserve a whole paragraph of my own. The opening of The Scar is riddled with such preening. All through the first 40 pages or so you can hear the grunts of a writer straining too ...
  • One Execution For Every 1600 Murders
    1,062 words
    Walker 1 Does executing murderers really stop violent crime in the U.S. Our government seems to think so. In many states the death penalty still exists or is being reinstated. Many people contend that the death penalty should be used in cases of heinous crime where guilt is obvious. Bill Clinton signed a bill adding 58 more crimes that are punishable by death. For example, if you see a murder or know of one and do not report it, you could be executed. If you know a gang killing, you could report...
