I would strongly argue no, but that is because i am a Christian. I am not going to force my morals over someone because that is tyrannical and not what God wants, but i would strongly encourage people to wait for marriage, because pre martial sex can pervert what true intimacy is.
America is a global super power, and if it were to take all troops into America the world would erupt into chaos. Isis would run rampant in the middle east, while Saudi Arabia and Israel would both fall without the support of American military. Furthermore, outside of the middle east, Boko haram would run rampant in Nigeria and west Africa more than it already has, and south Korea and Japan would surely be invaded or attacked by North Korea. Also, the United States military is bigger than the next four countries militaries on the list, and our brining all of American troops into the United states would be unreasonable. The USA is not under any threat of an invasion, and you cannot attack individual terrorist groups with an army.
A useful link for military size: I've checked it with other sources and they all give the same results http://www.globalfirepower.com/
i have accepted God the father son and holy spirit into my heart and i was baptized this september im am going to heaven and i am going to try to spread Gods words to all those i can so they can have a relationship with God...but i m not going to do it on this website
i dont really have a problem if a girl plays on a boys sports team, but if it came to my daughter i would rather her play on a girls team because it encourages a good female community where she can go to if she is in trouble or needs emotional help im not saying girls are fragile im just saying that boys do not understand girls what so ever. A girl is most certainly tough enough to play in Boys sports... i think my sister has a harder left hook than my friends haha
a man cannot give birth to a child... Men and women will never be equal, because in order to be equal you must have the same thing and that is impossible. Instead of pushing for equal rights push for fairness and justice. I am not saying that woman do not have equal worth as citizens. im just saying that when it comes to issues do not push for equality push for fairness and justice.
if we are talking a about efficiency then the absolute monarchy is the most efficient... 1 man or woman says what they want and it gets done, but an absolute monarchy is tyrannical and causes the nation to violate many human rights violations, and the minority or majority is never heard. just because a government is efficient does not mean it is good. I think that the governments role in society should be to uphold the voices of all people and serve the people. A government should not regulate everything its citizens do, i think the role of the government is to make laws that protect the citizens and not laws that benefit the government officials... i know that is not really possible, but that i would be the best type of government. Also, i agree that a democratic republic is the best from of government that we have right now.
The Declaration of Independence paints clear vision of what America should be: equal, fair, just and free, but it is soaked in hypocrisy and tyranny.
The Draft of the declaration of independence (DOI) paints a picture of America where all men are created equal with inalienable rights given to them by God. “We hold these truth to be self evident: that all men are created equal: that they are endowed by their creator with a certain inalienable rights; that among these are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness”(140). The draft of the DOI states that the ruling government can not take away these God given rights. Moreover, All men are created equal and free in and have the ability to make themselves happy. The American dream is written and intertwined throughout the whole draft of the DOI.
The inalienable rights of the people are kept by the government. Therefore, the people of America must give up some of their liberties to the government in order for these rights to be kept. “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government”(140). The draft of the DOI would be the the best form of a republic, because the people would be in control and have to ability to overthrow the central government, but the DOI is highly hypocritical and tyrannical.
Inalienable rights, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and all men are created equal, are not all kept by the government. Women, slaves, and indians were all valued as less than human by the white men writing this draft of the declaration. “ he waged a war on human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty on the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incurable misery and death in their transportation”(142). How can colonist condemn such a thing when they in fact are the ones buying the slaves and driving the slave trade, and putting such harsh punishments of the slaves, or even killing them? The American colonists took this out of the DOI because they knew this would end slavery, which for many of them was their form of income. How are the white male colonists any better than the english tyrants if the value income over human life? Black slaves could not learn to read or write, could not vote, and are possessions to their masters, and they are certainly not equal to the white men, and most certainly are not free.
Indians, the native people of America, were being abused attacked, and robbed, and while the DIO calls all men equal and that men cannot forcefully take the property from another man they are doing the opposite to the indians. “for depriving us in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury: for transporting seas to be tried for pretended offences: for abolishing the system of free english laws in its neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries, so as to render it at once”(141). The colonists condemn this action, but they themselves are actively doing the same thing to the Indians. The settlers expanded and trampled over Indian lands while shouting for freedom from a tyrannical government. The Indians were not represented in any form of government yet, the government would still pass laws to take there land. The DOI only calls for equal rights among white males, and everyone else must follow the rules set by them or penalties will be enacted.
The DOI is a reflection of England's rule over the colonies except, the American white males who wrote the DOI are the tyrants while the slaves, Indians and women are the victims. The DOI must not become law because it would cause much more harm than good and would only divide the country even more than it already is. Our republic would be living in inequality, drenched in tyranny, and soaked in hypocrisy ( not that it already is) nothing of the vision that the DOI wants to paint over our eyes.
im not familiar with this topic, but im going to argue that they are not. A society cannot be both fair and equal. fair means everyone gets what they deserve, and equal means everyone gets the same thing. but for the purpose of the this debate i would argue that individuals who are aware of there surroundings and use there voice to influence those around them. often time a government views people as bodies used for gears in a machine instead of as a mind that thinks for its self.
Kids nowadays are the first kids to ever grow up in a digital age and the first kids to grow up in an age when communication was so easy. I would argue that it is not all the Kids fault, its the parents and the community around them. Our community today is pessimistic and our news broadcasts dont constantly full of terrorist attacks and riots and spreading divisons in the community. That is why parents try to pamper there kids when they are young to protect them from the world, but that backfires and causes the kid to grow up a brat who thinks everyone should care for him. Also, im strongly against the everybody wins mindset that is in some sports today, because that lets kids know that they dont have to work for a reward when they are older. The children and youth are the worlds future and instead of focusing on selfish desires people should focus on teaching and raising the youth because they are the ones who are going to solve the problems and make a difference in the world. Dont not teach the youth sensitivity or violence or to hide there emotions teach the youth common sense and give them the tools needed to find the truth and creativity in the world
