It occurred on 13 November 1792, and it was young St. Just's inaugural speech. Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristics of St. Just's speech were its theoretical bent, its abstract spirit, and magnificent (or intolerable, depending on one's taste) aura of moral self-righteousness. Already in this speeches w...

He is celebrated as a hero not only for the concrete legislation he en...

    825 words
    Methods for Equality Do we live in a black and white world, or does a grey area exist in between? On the issue of civil rights equality, and particularly African-American's rights, it seems very clear cut that it is a black and white world. In the 1960's the African-American's began to stand up for their rights under rallying leaders.
