    If Buddha Were Alive Today, How Would He Answer The Question: 'How Should One Live'? What is right? Who is to say what is right? How do we know what we a redoing is right?

These four noble truths are suffering, the origin of suffering, the cessation of suffering, and the way of practice leading to the c...
  • Gay Guy
    475 words
    I think that Mathew Shepard was a good person. That stupid church guy that said gays are evil, Matt's in hell, and stuff like that are the "evil people. It's not evil to be gay. All that stuff religious people say about gays is nothing that really is true. The religious people take in everything that the bible says about everything so hard. The bible wasn't even written by god. The people that beat Matthew up were just raised to hate gays. It's not right to kill a gay person for hitting on you, ...
  • People Like Gandhi In Society
    734 words

He provided hope for people that would have never been given a chance for hope. People referred to as untouchables supported Gandhi, because he fought for their...
  • Culture Of People
    289 words
    HW#3 pg. 159 #2, 3#2. I think it's hard to separate the descriptive aspect and the compared perspective aspect. There is such a fine line between the two of them and many times overlapping. I know that I have a very hard time separating them, but to some experts it might be easy. To say that one culture is better than another is wrong. I know for myself there are cultures that I wouldn't want to live in, but that doesn't make them any better or worse than the one I live in. I couldn't live in th...
  • People Their Religion
    557 words
    Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx both seemed to believe that religion is a Drug. In which it helps people feel better about the unknown. Let's face it humans' fear the uncertain and we don't like to be scared. So what does our human instinct do? "Know Everything". But what happens when it is impossible to know the "ultimate concern"? I may seem atheist to you but I'm not I just don't like to have my beliefs spoon fed to me. I like to challenge and question everything. I believe in general people will...
  • People's Beliefs
    651 words
    Whatever the people of Boston take pleasure in seems to interpret as sin. If heaven is supposed to be a placed of paradise, isn't it pointless to say that all that brings pleasure and happiness is sin? It's almost like they " re making whatever part of heaven given to them in life into a living hell I think the people of Boston hypocrites because they are trying to build a place of the bible and a place of peace and happiness, yet they are unwelcome to change, narrow minded, and hard and judgmen...

  • Book's Ideas Conflict
    390 words
    One of the themes which happens to be the biggest one is burning books because they conflict with each other and the ideas of society. The firemen don't fight fires, they start them when they find books. Recollections and thoughts, writings and teachings from the greatest minds in history go up inflames because the government doesn't want people to fill their heads with it and develop an individual intelligence. The government is afraid of the books because they stimulate people's minds to think...
  • Impression On People
    290 words
    Today's society seems as though it is being taken over by consumerism. The term consumerism is defined as the tendency of people to identify strongly with products they consume, particularly of name brands and status-enhancing appeal. With the marketing world growing larger by day it seems more and more people are attracted to the advertised products and feel the need to have them in order to keep in style with the rest of society. The term "conspicuous consumption" applies to those people who s...
  • Fahrenheit 451
    484 words
    Fahrenheit 451: A Censored and Structured World David Finch August 30, 1996 Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 forces us to envision a world that is so structured and censored fireman exist not to fight fires, for all buildings are fireproof, but instead to burn books.

One of the primary characters that one meets in Fahrenheit 451 is a young girl named Clar...
  • Independent Thinking Betters Society
    647 words
    People possess many virtues. They can vary from person to person. Some of them are good and others arent. The three best virtues to have would be self-control, moderation and independent thinking. Self-control is very important because with out it, there would be total anarchy. People would be doing whatever they want at any time that they would want. If someone wanted a necklace, they would just end up taking it from somewhere else. [If there was anarchy, the probably wouldnt be any stores.] If...

  • 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...
  • Fox
    285 words
    Although many of us think we are, I personally disagree that we are a nation of animal lovers. A lot of us immediately think of cute, sweet happy creatures when the word animal is said. This is probably true but do we treat them the way they should be? Fox Hunting is a good example of the way many people mistreat animals, killing foxes for a sport. In my honest opinion this is cruel and unnecessary. The dogs a trained to give a quick bit at the fox's neck, and even if this is painless the fox is...

  • Cleveland Indians Symbol
    697 words
    Cara Levitt 2/6/03 Journal #3 Last week's class was very interesting, even though being a Psych major, I have hatched the topic of stereotypes to death. It was interesting to see other people's views and reactions when confronted with stereotypes. I think that every situation can be interpreted differently. It's hard to see that not everyone thinks the way you think. Sometimes people have trouble understanding why something they think is trivial is offensive to someone else. I noticed this when ...
  • Effects From The Greatest Thinkers
    382 words
    In the Information Era, societies change so rapidly that lots of perspectives also change more in this time than in the past. Greatest thinkers in the societies always represent a kind of old thinking style. People do not like to be the echo in this era that prefers innovation. That is why most societies seem to not take their greatest thinkers seriously. Actually, what we learn from the books, from the parents, and from the lives are the effects from the greatest thinkers. Take Plato as the exa...
  • People To Other Co Workers
    739 words
    Chapter 1 I use different typ es of communication all day. I work at an espresso bar and I am cashier and I serve the customers. All day I am thinking of the types of conversations I am holding and why I am having them. Most of the time it is use of instrumental goals. People come because they want product. Often times though, we have friendly conversations as I make one's drink. I see the difference it can make when I ask people how their day is going. Many people really enjoy this and just cas...
  • Self Interest
    307 words
    Altruism is used in discussions of ethics as an alternative to ethical egoism: the belief that people ought to be selfish. Altruism leads us to find a middle ground between being purely self interested and devoting our entire lives to the group. We learn that it's not preferable to be too self interested, but can be harmful to devote all your energy to other people. A little too much self interest can be as harmful as too much virtuousness towards others. As an ethical egotist, what you might le...
