  • Lot About An Anthrax
    666 words
    The Real Deal Out in the Field Being that this will be a very opinionated paper I concluded that I should begin this piece with an opinion. According to myself, there is no such thing as a just war. War is war no matter how much you try to justify it. You can't escape the fact that with war comes loss of life. This brings up the idea of "who are we to eliminate someone's life". No man should have such responsibility. Naturally those that cause war or instigate war are those that will not be figh...
  • Lennon The Above Famous Words

The late 60's was the time of the Vietnam War and also the time when the peace movement was at its peak. Anti-war demonstrations were a common sight on every street corner. Anti-communist sentim...
  • Wilson's Favorable Accomplishments During World War
    1,245 words
    Woodrow Wilson made several mistakes leading up to World War I. One of the most fundamental mistakes was his stance of holding Germany to a "strict accountability" for all American losses including American citizens sailing on Allied ships. Wilson claimed that freedom of the seas was being impeded by the U-boat blockade of the British Isles but protested only mildly of the British blockade of the Central Powers. Wilson insisted that Americans had the right to sail on any ship they chose. The onl...
  • Devon The Boys
    453 words
    By: Stacy Farah Devon is a safe haven away from the rest of the world. A war is going on, but at Devon the boys are playing around a river and creating new games like blitz ball and not worrying about the problems boys only a few years older than them are facing.

  • Virgil's Aeneid An Anti War Poem
    2,397 words
    Is Virgil's Aeneid an Anti-War Poem? Virgil opens the 'Aeneid' with the words ARMA virum que cano (I sing of arms and of men). The central role that war plays in this Roman epic is made apparent from the very first word of the 'Aeneid' by the emphatic placing of the word arm a at the very beginning of the poem. A fair chunk of Virgil's 'Aeneid' is set on the battle field but its violent and gory descriptions of death and its frequent battles alone cannot make this poem an anti-war poem. Virgil d...
  • Peace During The War
    419 words
    War does not always have the simple goal of killing as many of the enemy as you can. The motives behind war are often complex and not always vicious attempts to gain power. Often times a nation must enter a war to secure peace in the future. This was the case when Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war. Since the early days of the war when Wilson asked the nation to be impartial in their thoughts about the war, he fought to maintain the United State's neutrality. By sending his c...
  • Idea Of Social And International Peace
    11,028 words
    THE HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE PEACE IDEA 1 PEACE is not only a fundamental doctrine of Christianity; it is equally a fundamental doctrine of humanity in its essential constitution. Hence peace, both as an idea and as a social attainment, has had a natural historic development, in which other forces than Christian teaching, or any other religious teaching, technically such, have played a powerful and incessant part. These natural forces began to act earlier, perhaps, than the religious, and tho...

    783 words

Recruiting posters and propaganda to join the army convinced many boys into thinking the war is an exciting adventure. "The characters Gene, Finny, and Leper are used as opposing forces struggle between that cold reality of war and a separate peace" (Brian, Gatten), A peace away from the real war and all the terrible things that come. The attitudes...
  • Global Peace
    329 words
    Global Peacekeeping American issues are very important to help the economy today. One very important American issue is global peacekeeping. If we did not have the UN today to help global peace keeping, it would be the destruction of the world's economy and life as we know it. If we did not have these programs to help there would be a lot never ending wars going on. On the other hand global peacekeeping is not always the best thing in the world either. Like anything else it has problems. The revi...

    Robert Parma r [I got an A on this essay] In 16th and 17th century Europe, France, England, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Netherlands all underwent religious and political upheaval.

    Dwight Eisenhower Bringing to the Presidency his prestige as commanding general of the victorious forces in Europe during World War II, Dwight D.

  • Great Peace
    1,048 words
    Literary compositions are composed of series of lines entwined and tangled together to produce a rainbow of emotions and insights. Within it, a distinct line, a picture of jumbled puzzles of vowels and consonants, can be sharply tuned, to uncover the subtly hidden themes. Arthur Miller's own Crucible is no exception, with its pages shock full of such lines. One certain line graces on the last passage of Act Two, spoken by John Proctor, a lost man in struggle for goodness and truth. He claims des...
  • Only Peace War
    391 words
    WAR IS PEACE leads people to believe that war is a good thing when in reality it is only good for the government that they should believe this. Ironically, it is almost true, at lest in 1984. Because the states are at war, they are locked in perpetual deadlock. The war never endangers any of the state's important land and it prevents the equal distribution of goods by consuming them. Overproduction and equal distribution of goods would allow true socialism, which the party was never interested i...

  • Importance Of World Peace
    857 words
    "If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another". -- Winston Churchill I believe this statement to be a fundamental truth. I believe that material prosperity can only come to all by means of co-operation and peace. I believe it is also by these means that nations can build societies founded on the universal principals of justice, equality and brotherhood. From this solid plat...
  • 1950's A Decade Of Peace
    574 words
    Peace, Prosperity, and Progress? When Dwight D. Eisenhower ran for the presidency, his campaign slogan was Peace, Prosperity, and Progress. The American people liked the idea of all three, and in 1952, they showed it, when Eisenhower beat Stevens by a landslide. In actuality, Eisenhower failed to make the 1950's a decade of Peace, Prosperity, and Progress. Peace did not come till the end of fighting in the Korean War in 1953, and even then, the conflict was not resolved. Peace between the U.S. a...
  • Peace Breaks Out
    447 words
    The theme of Peace Breaks Out is the pain and hostility of war. The condition of the entire novel is the ending of WW II, which is in contrast to the seemingly peaceful serene environment the Devon School portrays.

The boys who once eagerly awaited the draft, was somewhat disappointed because they did not play their part in history. The students at the school created new activities to release the anger a...
  • States Need To Wage War In Order
    537 words
    Warfare has always wedged its way into society giving us a rather broad paradigm that warfare is indeed an unavoidable aspect of human society. To explain this concept, we must first view an arising question of how war occurs. If we can find the source of war, we could even possibly root it out of existence. In Raymond Keeyle's War Before Civilization, we learn that there are two major anthropologic sides to the recurring question: "What causes war?" One of the two sides is the Hobbesian realist...
  • World From The War
    904 words
    After World War One there was a great concern among the society how to keep the peace that was established in Versailles in June 1919. To ban war as a means of achieving political aims, at the request of France, a Briand- Kellogg Pact was signed (by 1939 by 75 countries) in 1928. This was to ensure that only diplomatic ways can be used to achieve a country's aims, but it was not obeyed (only once it came in as a ground for a peaceful settlement between the USSR and China over the Manchurian rail...
