  • Call For The Death Penalty
    1,176 words
    An often-heated debate is that of capitol punishment. This is tricky subject though since so many people have troubles deciding for themselves where to draw the line with their morals. Some people say that killing in any form is absolutely wrong. Some people agree that killing is wrong, however, if one person kills another it is what they deserve. Both views are quite respectable. The Old Testament does in fact say an eye for an eye. Thus, the punishment should fit the crime. If a person sees fi...

    819 words
    JFK WAS GOOD. THAT'S WHY THEY KILLED HIMI'm reminded of the expression 'out of the mouths of babes' whenever I think about the question my son asked me one day when I was talking about JFK. It was in November 1988 and I had just bought LIFE magazine's special 25th Anniversary edition of the assassination of President Kennedy. I was sitting on the couch looking at the pictures when my two sons came home from school. They sat down beside me and I started telling them about JFK but I couldn't stop ...

  • Genocide The People
    310 words
    Genocide The people who ran concentration camps in Bosnia and forced prisoners to kill each other by biting each other's genitals off, they " re not like us, are they? They " re fiends, demons, madmen. Like the Hut us who hacked to death their neighbours in Rwanda. Or the Nazis. Ordinary people couldn't do that. Could they? They could. They do. And it's not entirely irrational. Under extreme threat - economic collapse, as in Germany in the 1930's, or invasion, as in Rwanda in the 1990's - people...
  • Government Murders People
    381 words
    All throughout the media, one hears of murders and homicides. It is a crime to kill someone, but the government 'murders' people all the time without thinking twice. There is a risk when pulling the trigger that this horrible fate will happen. If it is not right to kill someone, why does the government kill people all the time? In The Bible, there is a statement that says 'Thou shalt not kill,' and yet the government believes it can punish for what it already does. It is a crime within a crime a...

  • Care About The People In Littleton
    839 words
    It seems for the past week or so, the entire world (yes, world, when I was in Spain they showed news coverage of this 24/7 too) has been shaken up by the school shootings in Littleton, CO (I think that's the name of the town, though don't hold me to that). What amazes me about this story is not the fact that two people went into a school and shot a bunch of people (apparently this is the seventh in-school multiple homicide in ten past 18 months), its the fact that the media has given extensive c...
  • Odysseus's Killings
    1,304 words
    Hebrew and Greek attitudes toward killing are similar, but once religion is factored in a remarkable difference is revealed. Early Hebrew citizens were murderous people by nature, much like the Greeks, but had God looking down on them saying to them that killing was wrong. Greek citizens would engage in war and human sacrifices with the gods on their side, and even sometimes the gods would take part in the murdering. The Greek way of life was murderous due to their strong urge to be revengeful, ...

  • People In The Name Of Tradition
    578 words
    "The Lottery" is a chilling narrative of the darkness of the human heart and mind. The story is set on a beautiful summer day, in a seemingly ordinary village. The townsfolk gather for a lottery, wherein the winner receives a prize most unusual: death. Shirley Jackson makes powerful use of irony and symbolism. She describes the day as being euphoric and full of life, though it is in contrast with the atmosphere of the town and of the people gathered in the square. The lottery is officiated by Mr...
  • 5 Slaves
    346 words
    Lucy Terry, who was a slave until 1756, wrote this poem while she was enslaved. This is a poem about the attack on Old Deerfield. In this poem, she talks about how the Indians killed 5 enslaved men. She seems to have a great attachment to making a point of saying their names so they will not be forgotten. They must be people that she knew, people that she knew to be great, or just people who were slaves also. It was August 25, 1746 and the Indians were out to kill some very fearless enslaved men...
  • Bad Of Things As Men
    391 words
    The quote, "The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness" by Joseph Conrad, means that people don't have to believe in evil things because men can do just as much evil. Ghosts, spirits and things like that can't do as bad of things as men can. Men are capable of creating just as much evil as those things. I agree with the author of this quote. I think that he is trying to get across a point to people that think men do nothing wrong...
  • Alyona's Possessions To People Of Need
    270 words
    Is it possible to say that if, by using Alyona's wealth, hundreds or thousands of lives could be put "on the right path", or dozens of families rescued, then it would be okay to murder Alyona? One point of view would argue that one death for hundreds or thousands of lives is fair. Others would argue that the murder should never happen. I believe that the murder of Alyona was unfair and unjust. Alyona, a pawnbroker, never did anything to harm anyone. She traded and sold her goods with other peopl...
