  • Protection Of Human Rights
    827 words
    Human rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent. Human rights are what make us human. When we speak of the right to life, or development, or to dissent and diversity, we are speaking of tolerance. Tolerance will ensure all freedoms. Without it, we can be certain of none. The raging ethnic cleansing in Kosovo is an example of intolerance. The Serbians will not tolerate the Albanians at any cost. They are forcing them from their homes, turning the streets into killing fields. This civil...
  • Sophistic Movement
    562 words
    The vast majority of today's society isn't the slightest bit aware of the tremendous influence the sophistic period of thought has had and continues to have on modern western politics. But how could a supposedly highly educated and intelligent people be so ignorant of such an important and significant epoch in our history? It was during the fifth century B.C. when the sophistic movement, founded by a man named Protagoras, was at its prime. The sophist were recognized as highly skillful teachers ...
  • Alice's Father About A Pass
    422 words
    Kindred Writing Activity The fire, page 36: "I could literally smell his sweat, hear every ragged breath, every cry, every cut of the whip. I could see his body jerking, convulsing, straining against the rope as his screaming went on and on. My stomach heaved, and I had to force myself to stay where I was and keep quiet. Why didn't they stop!" In the middle of the night, four white men storm into a cabin in the woods while four others wait outside. The cabin belongs to Alice and her mom. The fou...
  • Dead Man And The Cure The Desert
    779 words
    The Dead Man and the Cure The desert was the apotheosis of all deserts, huge expanding into dusty nothingness in all directions. The dying man walked and his footfalls puffed indifferently. He did not know how much longer his feet or his soul would carry him. His death was certain, for they all had told him. He knew his doom and the incurable pain of the world gone mad. He had visited the church and the ones in robes said he was damned by whatever gods they prayed to. He had studied at the acade...
  • Contrary To Man's Duty
    2,541 words
    Concerning Suicide It seems absurd that a man can injure himself (vol enti non fit [ = to the willing no injustice is done]). The Stoic therefore considered it a prerogative of his personality as a wise man to walk out of this life with an undisturbed mind whenever he liked (as out of a smoke-filled room), not because he was afflicted by actual or anticipated ills, but simply because he could make use of nothing more in this life. And yet this very courage, this strength of mind -- of not fearin...
  • Just Two Tear Drops
    312 words
    The shiny little rain drops brightened up the sky, Falling one after the other in every little corner of the street, Dressed in a sweet pink raincoat, came a little girl, With tears falling down her pale little cheeks, A tear for sadness and a tear for joy, Two tear drops was what I saw that pouring night. I remember, I remember, The house where I was born, All those treasured memories now a part of my past, I shed a tear of pain and sorrow for the past, And a tear of happiness and fortune for t...
  • Robinson Jeffers On The Other Hand
    2,516 words
    The Nature of Man by Robinson Jeffers Robinson Jeffers is one of the twentieth centuries most important and controversial poets. He, like others in history, has tried to give his opinion about life. Many poets in the twentieth century focused on issues affecting mankind, Jeffers is no exception. Most of his work was inspired by his surroundings. One's environment is great source for poetic inspiration. Poets come and go, but their ideas are kept alive through their poems. Whether they are a hund...
  • Initial Doorkeeper
    692 words
    In his parable Before the Law, Franz Kafka suggests that obstacles that one faces in life can either be used to mold one's success or bring about one's failure. If one can overcome challenges that they face they grow in a unique type of way, for every individual perceives each situation in a distinct fashion. That unique type of growth is what establishes a person's character and perception of the world. However if one cannot overcome their obstacles, then they cut of their means for growth and ...
  • One Radio From Their Store
    456 words
    Existentialist View of Human Condition Two of the main principles of Existentialist Human Condition are: That man exists and then creates himself and what man chooses for himself he chooses for everyone else as well. Lets examine the first principle: man exists and then defines himself. What it means is that man is created on this earth and is nothing but a body, blood and guts. What he chooses to do and to be is what makes him a man. If a man comes into this world and chooses to steal, cheat, k...
  • Budd Dwyer
    1,046 words
    I had never been more stunned and deeply disturbed in my entire life. As I watched from the comfort of a friends living room, one mans personal hell had just spun wildly out of control and very abruptly ended. Life and death captured in vivid Technicolor right on television just for my amusement. The world can be a truly wretched place at times. I will never forget how the scene unfolded. A portly, balding middle aged man was standing behind a small podium during what appeared to be a press conf...
