    568 words
    Essay 3: What is a Nation? A nation, as defined in Webster's Universal College Dictionary, is "a body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government peculiarly its own". This definition is correct, but leaves so much unsaid. The word nation is actually derived from the Latin word nation that means birth. It represents the beginning of something. London had a miraculous "birth" in the year 0. This corresponds to th...
  • Injustice Upon First Nation People In Canada
    1,919 words

This law knowingly violated two of the prevailing European principles of international justice. The Crown was setting itself up as the exclusive real estate agent for the vast First Nation lands in North Ame...
  • Sense Of Nationalism
    670 words
    Nationalism is a political concept that provides a bridge between people and their sense of obligation and duty for their country. I disagree with Mr. Albert Einstein's notion that nationalism is an infantile disease. I believe that nationalism is an extremely powerful and unifying tool for nations and states, because without it many of the colonized nations in Africa and Asia would still be colonized, and there would be fewer democracies in existence. Many African and Asian nations were victims...

  • Effective Against The National Liberation Front
    620 words
    Wars of National Liberation and the End of Colonialism National liberation is a concept that has been justly and unjustly idealized for many generations. Freedom and independence are rights that every person deserves, and, sadly enough, war is often the only means by which to obtain these basic human needs. Most Americans living today know close to nothing about dictatorships, tyranny and how many people don't have these rights, which most American people commonly ignore. National liberations ar...
  • People Need
    548 words
    As Benjamin Franklin once said "A people who would trade liberty for security deserve neither". I totally agree in that we as the people of the United States should not ask for greater safety at the price of liberty. I feel that the government does not have the power to limit our First Amendment rights. The people of this country hold the power and politicians are merely their puppets. These leaders can ask for all kinds of authority during a time like this but all it would take is a string back...

  • Maron Ite Christians Control Of Lebanon
    2,687 words
    Written by: The Prophet Edited by: The Metalli an Lebanon, a nation that once proudly called itself the Switzerland of the Middle East, is today a country in name only. Its government controls little more than half of the nation's capital, Beirut. Its once-vibrant economy is a shambles. And its society is fragmented - so fragmented, some believe, that it may be impossible to re-create a unified state responsive to the needs of all its varied peoples. Lebanon lies on the eastern shore of the Medi...

    This nation, to me, has become an unsafe place. Being an American, I never thought that I would have to worry about terrorism.

Not knowing that it was a plane, plenty of people stayed in b the building instead of getting out. A few moments later, the second building was struck by an...

  • Your King And Your Nation
    1,101 words
    The Emergence of Nationalism By the end of the Middle Ages in the 14th century, a new belief of nationalism appeared in Europe. Simultaneously, the feudal system was crumbling. The Hundred Year War helped develop nationalism, because the commoner had become more of a necessity in battle, thus making the nobility a less significant force. The peasants revolts, due to many economic and social problems of the day, weakened the feudal system by giving more power to the commoners, which in turn reduc...
