A truly classless society People have argued this subject for a while now, but if you really think about it a truly classless society would be very irritating. You could be the hardest worker with the toughest job and still be getting paid as much as a lazy worker. You know what you call that, unfair! People should have to work up the later for their money; if you try hard enough you deserve more. I don’t think it’s fair that some people are just born into rich families, there for they don’t have to work as hard, but the class system would be even worse. If everyone is getting paid the same amount of money, chances are that they are going to slack off. Competition is what keeps people motivated to actually try. What’s the point of pushing yourself hard if you’re not going to further yourself ahead of anyone. People also won’t care to try to get a better education, because they’d know college or not you will still get the same payment. I believe because of this, no one will want to try hard enough to get the high education needed jobs. All the jobs really necessary like doctors and nurses will decrease in workers. A truly classless society will hold back people from actually caring to push them forward and actually try. I’m not really sure if it would even work, I mean people could try it out for a bit, but I feel like it would fail. People would start getting irritated and protest to discontinue the no class system society. I honestly don’t think it would work; the only ones who would want it would be the ones who really don’t try. America is all about working and trying to strive for more and more. If you take people’s goals away, they aren’t going to just stand and take it, they will fight for what they deserve and worked so hard to get. It honestly sounds like a very unrealistic idea. It sounds like we would be…...

Is Justice Truly Blind

...Running head: IS JUSTICE TRULY BLIND? Is Justice Truly Blind The structure by which offenders are detained and reprimanded is one of the supports of any democratic system. However in order for that arrangement to remain feasible, the community must be convinced that individuals in resembling circumstances are treated the same and with consistency, from the original exploration of the offense, to the hearing and penalty of that crime, down to the prosecutors and the judges. This process is not optional, but rather guaranteed by the Constitution of law despite race, gender or ethnicity (Justice on Trial, 2012). As we know our criminal justice system today, it appears to be operating far from this principle. Somehow in the arena of criminal justice, racial discrimination is increasing instead of diminishing. Disparate treatment of minorities differentiates every point in the course of action. Black and Hispanic Americans, as well as other minority groups, are mistreated by inconsistent targeting and unreasonable treatment by the police and other law enforcement officials; by the racially distorted charging and plea bargaining resolutions offered by prosecutors, biased punishments, and by the letdown of judges, nominated officials and other criminal justice guidelines used to remedy the unfairness of justice that has become more obvious as time goes on (Justice on Trial, 2012). All of these issues add to the opinion that lawlessness is a colored and......

Alexander: Truly Great

...Alexander, son of King Philip II of Macedon, is known as Alexander the Great. However, was he truly great? One may look at his many accomplishments to decide if he deserves the title. Sometimes character is the test of determining if a man is great. Alexander meets both standards with his philosophic background, conquering abilities, victories in battle, and outstanding accomplishments; therefore, he truly meets his title as Alexander the Great Alexander was born in 356 B.C. to King Philip II f Macedon, and Olympias, princess of Epirus. King Philip was one of Alexander’s main influences. Philip was a man of action: he built cities, navies, roads, armies, conquered Athens, and created the League of Corinth, which he treated fairly. At age 13, Alexander’s father hired Aristotle to tutor his son. Aristotle’steachings encompassed all aspects of Greek life: art, poetry, science, and philosophy. Aristotle would become Alexander’s second greatest influence in life, one that would inspire him to live a good, moral life. Another tutor of Alexander’s, before Aristotle, was the Acarnian Lysimachus. He created a game with Alexander in which he would pretend to be the great hero Achilles. Alexander believed Achilles was the true example of a great aristocratic warrior, and he modeled himself after him. Later in life, Alexander would carry with him a copy of Homer’s Iliad and traded his armor for, what he believed to be, Achilles’ armor. When King Philip was assassinated, Alexander......

He says: 'I noticed a demand, especially among younger diners, for eateries that stay open through the night and I believed that a 24-hour Han's would increase sales.' In three months, its first 24-hour cafe began drawing a steady stream of young diners as well as young families. The Holland Drive branch of Han's and the Wilkie Edge branch of Hanis are also open round the clock. It successfully implemented the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points food safety management system at its Great Eastern Centre and Budget Terminal branches last year and it is rolling out the scheme at its other outlets. Ms Han says: 'With this system in place, it will be easy for us to replicate the operations overseas, where we have received many franchise inquiries.'

Becoming Truly Converted

...be Christian.”(Acts 26: 28) It is sad that despite what the King felt he did not want to become converted. If the King only had a small desire to know what Paul taught was important things might have been different. Elder Robert D. Hales in this past General Conference council on how we can become more converted. “Cultivate a diligent desire to know that God lives. This Desire leads us to ponder on the things of heaven to let the evidence of God all around us touch our hearts. With Softened hearts we are prepared to heed the Savior’s call to search the scriptures and to humbly learn from them.”(Hales 32) Knowing that faith is the founding principle of becoming converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ is really important. To become truly converted it is necessary to live the principles that Christ taught for faith is a principle of action. To become converted is a process that everyone must individually decide. Sharing the gospel and providing is one of the best ways to feel the converting power of the Spirit. I personally know this to be true. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that it is through and only through him that we can be saved....

Truly War?

...self-declared states such as Taiwan in diplomatic recognition limbo. While there is not a large body of academic work examining the relationship, Hironaka's statistical study found a correlation that suggests that every major international anti-secessionist declaration increased the number of ongoing civil wars by +10%, or a total +114% from 1945 to 1997. The diplomatic and legal protection given by the international community, as well as economic support to weak governments and discouragement of secession, thus had the unintended effect of encouraging civil wars. There has been an enormous amount of international intervention in civil wars since 1945 that served to extend wars. While intervention has been practiced since the international system has existed, its nature changed substantially. It became common for both the state and opposition group to receive foreign support, allowing wars to continue well past the point when domestic resources had been exhausted. Superpowers, such as the European great powers, had always felt no compunction in intervening in civil wars that affected their interests, while distant regional powers such as the United States could declare the interventionist Monroe Doctrine of 1821 for events in its Central American "backyard". However, the large population of weak states after 1945 allowed intervention by former colonial powers, regional powers and neighboring states who themselves often had scarce resources. On average, a civil war with......

That is an OLAP bargain with accumulation, which comes down to the operation of information through "expansion" yet information mining compares to "division". Other striking distinction is that while information mining apparatuses model information and return noteworthy principles, OLAP will direct examination and complexity systems along business size continuously.

What Greek Life Truly Means to Me

...When I think about greek life I truly think about sisterhood. When I joined the Greek system as a transfer Junior from Baton Rouge, LA, I didn’t realize the kinds of connections and relationships it would open up for me. My name is Taylor Padgett and I am a Delta member of the Delta Sigma Chapter at the University of Mississippi. Starting this year off, joining a sorority was not even on my list of life accomplishments and never even crossed my mind especially at a school known for their prestigious greek life. Only knowing two people upon transferring here I was told that it would be a good idea to join and make friends, but in my mind I didn’t want to “pay for my friends”. A few months into the fall semester I was walking through the grove here on Campus when I saw thousands of girls all wearing blue and pink C.A.R.E walk shirts. Totally disregarded what was going on until I approached a short dark headed girl, Logan Sparks, under a big white tent to ask what was going on ,where she informed me about this new sorority called Alpha Delta Pi that was coming back to campus. I was so overwhelmed by everything that was going on around me I wasn’t able to take it all in. It wasn’t until a day or two later when I was walking to subway on the third floor of our student union when I was approached by another one of our awesome leadership consultants Jessica Johnson. In a calmer area, I was able to really take in what greek life actually was and what Alpha Delta Pi could do for me.......

Australia as a Classless Society

...“Australia is a Classless Society” Discuss. It is this ideal that has in fact attracted many migrants to Australia over the course of its history. This essay will discuss some of the theories and definitions of class, then examine how they relate to Australian society, and whether Australia does indeed have a class system, arguing that in many ways, it does. It will discuss people’s perception of classes and their position in them, mobility between classes, and the impact of class on health, education and crime. It will show that there is a direct correlation between class and the level of crime, the health of an individual and the level of education attained. At its federation in 1901 the new nation of Australia was founded on principles of equality, although as Belinda Probert points out in her lecture ‘Class in 2001’, (Probert, 2001) this equality did not extend to women, Aborigines or people from non Anglo races. This egalitarian belief was founded on the notion of a fair and decent wage, an ideal proposed by Justice Higgins of the Commonwealth Court of Conciliation and Arbitration in 1907, when he set the first minimum weekly wage. This wage 1 was to reflect the cost of living, the amount of money required by an average person for the basic necessities of life; food and water, housing and clothing. This was called the Harvester Judgment. What is class? It is a division in society of a group of people who all have a similar social and economic status. For Karl Marx......

The Truly Great Gatsby

...The Truly Great Gatsby Is his novel the Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald creates Gatsby as a character who becomes great. He begins life as just an ordinary, lower-class, citizen. But Gatsby has a dream of becoming wealthy. After meeting Daisy, he has a reason to strive to become prominent. Throughout his life, Gatsby gains the title of truly being great. Even before Gatsby is introduced, he is hinted at being out of the ordinary. The first evidence of this is when Nick says, "Gatsby turned out all right at the end." (2) Nothing was known about Gatsby at the time and Nick is already saying Gatsby was okay. There's a air of mysteriousness surrounding Gatsby. Everyone knows of him, but no one knows who he really is or where he comes from. Even at our first glance of Gatsby, he's reaching out for something only he can see. There were many stories flying about Gatsby but no one knew what to really believe. In on instance Jordan made the comment, "I think he killed a man." (49) Even when Gatsby confessed about his past he didn't always tell the truth. He told Nick he inherited great wealth, but in reality, Gatsby gained his wealth on his own. Even though Gatsby lied, the fact that he made himself what he was makes him even that much greater. When Gatsby was still James Gatz, he had a dream of leaving his life on the farm behind and become part of the upper-class. Even Gatsby's father knew when he said, "If he'd lived, he'd of been a great man." (169) Little......

Truly War?

...complicated by historical revisionists, who have tried to offer a variety of reasons for the war. Slavery was the central source of escalating political tension in the 1850s. The Republican Party was determined to prevent any spread of slavery, and many Southern leaders had threatened secession if the Republican candidate, Lincoln, won the 1860 election. After Lincoln had won without carrying a single Southern state, many Southern whites felt that disunion had become their only option, because they felt as if they were losing representation, which hampered their ability to promote pro-slavery acts and policies. Slavery The slavery issue was primarily about whether the system of slavery was an anachronistic evil that was incompatible with Republicanism in the United States, or a state-based property system compatible with and protected by the Constitution, as had been the case in the Roman Republic. The strategy of the anti-slavery forces was containment — to stop the expansion and thus put slavery on a path to gradual extinction. To slave holding interests in the South, this strategy was perceived as infringing upon their Constitutional rights. Slavery was being phased out of existence in the North, where Coloured men had in some cases been granted the franchise or even served as representatives; it was fading in the border states and urban areas, but was expanding in highly profitable cotton districts of the south. Despite compromises in 1820 and 1850, the slavery......

Market System

...Market System Imagine a life in which every single action that we made was basically owned and operated by the government. Now, imagine the opposite. Imagine that you are free to make the choices that you want without having to give your rights up to the government. I know, at times, we feel that America is truly run from the government and we have no choice; but, compared to other countries, America has a lot of freedom when it comes to the rights of the individuals. The economic system that the United States uses is capitalism. Capitalism is the economic system that is also known as the free market system, and is based off on private ownership, economic freedom, and fair competition. Other countries, however, use socialism as their economic system. Socialism is based on the principle that the government should operate some of the key enterprises that affect the welfare of the public. Finally, some countries choose to use communism as their economic system. Communism is based off of the principle that the government should operate and direct almost all enterprises. Clearly, these three economic systems are very different in the way that they operate. In this paper, I am going to compare and contrast the three types of economic systems: capitalism, socialism, and communism. Capitalism, also known as the free market system, is the economic system used by the United States. Because of capitalism, we have what are called fundamental rights. Fundamental rights are rights......

Are Publications Truly Different in Nature?

...Dawn M. Hampton Mrs. Pfeifer Composition 1 July 8, 2014 Are Publications Truly Different in Nature? Most people can recognize the name or are familiar with The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and National Enquirer (NE). Closely examining the two newspapers, it can be stated that there are some similarities and definitely differences. Although the readership can be assumed to be of different personality types WSJ and NE contain similarities and differences in terms of their graphics, advertisements, and article content. To start with, comparing the graphics of the two publications, it is noted that both have similarity with the use of bold larger font lettering for their headlines making a visual effect in separating articles. Both papers use colored ink for images and pictures and also feature photos of people that mirror human emotion. For example, the WSJ’s article “Teens Care Spurs Wider Fight” has a picture of the teen’s mother looking distraught and another article in the WSJ sports section titled “Team Canada: Officially Unstoppable” shows a hockey player with his hands up in the air and a look of celebratory victory with a huge smile on his face. In like manner, NE has numerous photos of people showing emotion. For instance, the article “Mad Mel’s Even Madder” contains a photo shot of Mel Gibson with a look of anger and appears as if he is yelling; while another article on the same page “Celine’s Cancer Stricken Husband” shows a picture of Celine Dion looking...

Truly College?

...colleges of University of London Secondary education In some national education systems, secondary schools may be called "colleges" or have "college" as part of their title. In Australia the term "college" is applied to any private or independent primary and, especially, secondary school as distinct from a state school. Melbourne Grammar School, Cranbrook School, Sydney and The King's School, Parramatta are considered colleges. There has also been a recent trend to rename or create government secondary schools as "colleges". In the state of Victoria, some state high schools are referred to as secondary colleges. Interestingly, the pre-eminent government secondary school for boys in Melbourne is still named Melbourne High School. In Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory, "college" is used in the name of all state high schools built since the late 1990s, and also some older ones. In New South Wales, some high schools, especially multi-campus schools resulting from mergers, are known as "secondary colleges". In Queensland some newer schools which accept primary and high school students are styled state college, but state schools offering only secondary education are called "State High School". In Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory, "college" refers to the final two years of high school, and the institutions which provide this. In this context, "college" is a system independent of the other years of high school. Here, the expression is a......

Truly Important

...Sherri Anderson Professor Josh Fleming English 101 27 September 2015 Truly Important My mother was diagnosed with stomach cancer in November of 2008. The doctor predicted she had four months left to live and chemotherapy would not make a difference in prolonging her life. After receiving this devastating news, many questions came to mind. How do you accept something like this? Why did this happen? How will I survive without her in my life? Most importantly, what was my mother feeling? I needed answers. The events that took place during the last days of my mother’s life were difficult to deal with, although, they made me realize the more important things in life and not to take those things for granted like: family and friends and the time you spend with them. It was Saturday April 4, 2009, when I received a call from my aunt, who had been my mother’s caretaker, informing me that my mother had slipped into a state of unconsciousness, a coma. The only words I heard during our conversation were, “you need to get here as soon as possible, and we will try to keep her alive.” I knew this day was coming, but not this soon. My thoughts began to wander, leaving me to guess on what lies ahead. I already had my clothes packed ready to go because I knew we would have to leave immediately since I was five hundred miles away from where my mother was living. After I hung up with my aunt, I called my sister, who lived in the same town as me, and informed her that we needed to leave......

Are Human Rights Truly Universal?

...Are human rights truly universal? This essay will address the question of human rights, whether they are truly universal or not. First I will explore the contemporary definition of human rights by outlining the key points in the historical evolution of the concept. Then I will engage with those perspectives which suggest that human rights are not universal, because of cultural or other differences between societies. After that, I will consider the possible ways that human rights can achieve its universality without the contradiction of any culture. Human Rights have quite a long history. They have already been mentioned in ancient Greek Philosophy. Later on, “Rights of Man” has been mentioned in both the American Declaration of Independence, as well as in the Rights of Man and the Citizens at the time of the French Revolution (Summa, 2011). After the second world war, the need for an organization to maintain international peace and to prevent the world from a new world war has been emerged. As a result of that, on the 26th of October 1945, 51 country has established the United Nations. To protect and guarantee the rights of every individual in the world, the United Nations General Assembly has approved a bill, which contains the human rights of individuals. This document is called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which includes rights such as equality before the law, protection against arbitrary arrest, freedoms of speech, religion, assembly and political......
