  • Certain Civil Liberties In The Constitution
    1,238 words
    When the founders of the United States of America got together to write the Constitution they anticipated certain issues that might occur between the Federal Government and the individual citizen. It was these concerns that caused them to include certain civil liberties in the Constitution. A civil liberty is an individual right protected by the Constitution against the powers of the government. (Sidlow and Henschen 2001, p. 470). After leaving the command of Britain, the citizens of the colonie...
  • Location Of The Statue Of Liberty
    396 words
    I chose to write about the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty serves as a symbolic fixture of the principles America was founded on. She represents freedom, liberty, and opportunity. The location of the Statue of Liberty is an amazing feat in itself, it is right in the middle of a very wide and a very deep Hudson river, and at the time it was brought there, with the limited technology, was amazing. Adding to the location, The State of Liberty as everyone knows is right next to the old cust...
  • Very Useful Definition Of Liberty
    536 words
    What is Liberty During the age of enlightenment many philosophes had different views on the definition of liberty. In the opinion of the philosophes, Voltaire, Smith, Montesquieu and Rousseau the four ideals were almost identical. Voltaire stated, Liberty is the life of the soul. Jean-Jacques Rousseau stated, Liberty is obedience to the law one has laid down for oneself. Adam Smith stated, Every man, as long as he does not violate the laws of justice, is left perfectly free to pursue his own int...
  • Their Dreams After The Declaration Of Independence
    440 words
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That excerpt from the Declaration of Independence is undoubtedly the most well known and convincing sentence in American History. These abstractions such as: rights, freedom, liberty and happiness have become the foundations of American society. Life and Liberty, being equally crucial in a...
  • Libertarian Viewpoint
    1,037 words
    Poverty in the United States has long been a social, political, and human rights issue. Few people would say that it is not our moral duty, as social human beings to take care of those less fortunate than ourselves, to the best of our ability. I say "few" because there are some people out there who believe that we have no moral obligation to do anything outside of ourselves. These types of people have what is called a "libertarian" viewpoint. There is really no specific definition of "libertaria...
  • Word Welfare
    435 words
    Images of Welfare "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands: one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all". These words are uttered in elementary schools, high schools, and various events and meetings throughout the nation everyday. We usually do not associate the image of welfare with the American flag or think about it as we recite the allegiance. We, however, associate it with images of prosperity and freedom. As I lo...
  • Causes Of Faction
    625 words
    The Federalist No. 10 The Utility of the Union as a Safeguard Against Domestic Faction and Insurrection (continued) Daily Advertiser Thursday, November 22, 1787 [James Madison] To the People of the State of New York: AMONG the numerous advantages promised by a well constructed Union, none deserves to be more accurately developed than its tendency to break and control the violence of faction. The friend of popular governments never finds himself so much alarmed for their character and fate, as wh...
  • Current Politics In Russia
    489 words
    Democracy and universal suffrage are nowadays identified with the words liberty and basic rights. Not necessarily so argues Fareed Zakaria suggesting that it is not democracy itself that brings about liberty and rights, but that the creation and protection of those inalienable rights - along with economic progress and a rise in living standards - that ultimately make for legitimate democracy. To criticize democracy is sometimes seen as like criticizing the idea of human rights; how can anybody d...
  • Rothbard
    365 words
    There are always a few, better endowed than others, who feel the weight of the yoke and cannot restrain themselves from attempting to shake it off... These are in fact the men who, possessed of clear minds and far-sighted spirit, are not satisfied, like the brutish mass, to see only what is at their feet, but rather look about them, behind and before, and even recall the things of the past in order to judge those of the future, and compare both with their present condition. These are the ones wh...

    Thanks to Paul Torek for some thought-provoking comments, to which shall reply in two parts. Firstly, I should like to comment o nhis intriguing suggestion on how Rawls might react to my hypothetical. Second, I'd like to make some comments on Torek's own criticisms. 1. Rawls and the Hypothetical There is the interesting side-issue that I cannot help but stray into. Namely: how would a Rawls ian reply to my thought experiment I had considered Torek's suggestion during the original writing, but I ...
  • Controversy On Order Vs Liberty
    385 words
    Order vs. Liberty, one of the most controversial subjects that is discussed among our government and among citizens. Order is the condition of logical or comprehensible arrangement among the separate elements of a group. Liberty, being the condition of being free from restriction or control is very important to our society today. When Congress passed the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798, it brought out a "heated debate" because of the limits of freedom in a free society. The main question that is...
