  • One Superpower With Several Other Great Powers
    1,002 words
    New World Orders In fifty years will all the countries on earth finally be at peace with one another Will we have found a solution to conflicts we as a country face today The answers to these questions are unclear to be sure. Although peace is what most countries would agree to be most beneficial, it is hard to imagine a world in which there no longer exists reasons for nations to fight amongst themselves. After having read The New Geopolitics-2050 of the July 31st The Economist, I understand a ...
  • Cornerstone To Rodya And Nietzsche's Theories
    5,729 words
    Friedrich Nietzsche once said, "Dostoevsky, the only one who has taught me anything about psychology". The two writers share many similarities and differences. Dostoevsky clearly had an effect on the thinking of Nietzsche. The two would be considered both philosophers and psychologists. Both writers became prominent in the late 19th century in Germany and Russia respectively. Dostoevsky was noted for his Russian literary classics and would be responsible for a flowering of late 19th century Russ...
  • Their Evil Wills
    8,870 words
    Beyond the Problem of Evil Introduction: The problem of evil is, in my opinion, the best point of departure for a fruitful dialogue between Christianity, traditionally conceived, and those strands of modern philosophy which have been perceived-indeed, have sometimes perceived themselves-as a threat to that tradition. As such, I will attempt first, to outline the problem of evil in the starkest terms possible, presenting Augustine's approach to its solution followed by a critical analysis; second...

  • Hobbes's Concept Of Absolute Sovereignty
    2,981 words
    A state is sovereign when its magistrate owes allegiance to no superior power, and he or she is supreme within the legal order of the state. It may be assumed that in every human society where there is a system of law there is also to be found, latent beneath the variety of political forms, in a democracy as much as in a absolute monarchy, a simple relationship between subjects rendering habitual obedience, and a sovereign who renders obedience to none. This vertical structure, of sovereign and ...
  • Electric Utility Industry In The Coming Years
    1,286 words
    Electricity is the principal force that powers modern society. It lights buildings and streets, runs computers and telephones, drives trains and subways, and operates all variety of motors and machines. Yet most people, despite their great dependence on electrical power, hardly give it a thought. They flip a switch, turn a key, or pick up a phone and expect the power to be there without fail. The almost-century old structure of the American electric utility industry is in need of change. Almost ...

    What military force we will see in the next millennium will not be conventional. Conventional military force, Defined as: the movement of mass armies across frontiers.

  • Imperious Will To Power
    1,235 words
    An inside look at s&m These ritualized behaviors; the strange and blatant acts, some which seem to be cut right from a horror-fiction film; the rigid symbolism in dress, and manner - none of these behaviors should be taken lightly, or ever treated as a mere 'game'. For those who do possess, in the depths of their being, the predominantly Sado-Masochistic tendency cannot do without the flavor of it. And it will taint every relationship - it is very often not a choice - and often it destroys love;...
  • Person With Absolute Power
    358 words
    "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely". This quote is an opinion. The person that said this could have meant a number of things by it. However, I believe this quote to be true. Power corrupts. This means, to me, that when a person has power somehow they are corrupted or that the person with the power, corrupts the things they have power over. The next part of the quote is "absolute power corrupts absolutely", this means that a person with absolute power will absolutely corrupt h...
  • Political Power
    841 words
    Native people who occupied what is now "North America" had different political practices and it was the so called primitive government. The thought that they had a non political organization made the Europeans misunderstand the social structure of the natives. They thought that there is a lack of leadership and inhabitants were at a state of anarchy and underdevelopment. This misapprehension was a result of the political authority measurements Europeans considered; natives did not have any while...

  • Hybrids And Electric Cars

    ALTERNATIVES TO OIL Peak oil is a huge problem that is facing the United States in the near future. Gas prices will skyrocket forcing most people to become self-sufficient. In other words, people are not going to be able to depend on the supermarket to get food. No more dining out, or going to the movies or traveling for vacation. The United States alone consumes nearly 7.5 billion barrels of oil each year. It would practically be a miracle for an alternative to be found and compensate for the f...

  • Hobbes's Theory Of People
    1,100 words
    Hobbesian Fright vs. Neitzsche an Might: Human Nature's Influence on Morality Nathan Pang 408-59-6025 Given the options of defending either Neitzsche's, or Hobbes's radical views on morality, I must conclude that Neitzsche's concept of the "Will to Power" is, despite the controversy of the concept of slave morality, at heart the more correct view on the origin of human nature and morality than Hobbes's theory of Psychological Egoism. Hobbes's claim that all men are equal is an absurd place to be...
  • Two Types Of Power Game Players
    674 words
    Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other. Carl Jung People have created a great number of games. A power game even didn't have to be invented for it lies in the nature of every living being. It has penetrated in almost every sphere of our day-to-day life: politics, sport, family relations, different kinds of art, etc. According to the psychologist Alfred Adler, a domineering type of people is characterize...
  • System Of Democracy
    445 words
    In his book IV, De Tocqueville discusses the influence of democratic ideas and feelings on the society they govern. De Tocqueville sees serious ills within the system of democracy. Chiefly, his concern is with independent men acting with no other guide than their own will. This complete independence, according to De Tocqueville, will undoubtedly lead to men only valuing the leaders they have chosen. The equality and independence men receive from democracy may be the factors that cause them to de...
