  • Abolish the Death Penalty

    Abolish the Death Penalty

    The death penalty has always and will always be a very controversial issue. It does not deteriorate crime because it is a crime. Do you want to commit a crime? I think not. The process of execution is easy to understand, but the emotions involved in carrying out a death sentence upon another person, regardless of how much they deserve it, is beyond my own understanding. I just can’t kill a person, no matter

    Aboriginal Identity in Post-Colonial Australia

    Aboriginal Identity in Post-Colonial Australia The ‘colonisation’ of Australia by Europeans has caused a lot of problem for the local Aborigines. It drastically reduced their population, damaged ancient family ties, and removed thousands of Aboriginal people from the land they had lived on for centuries. In many cases, the loss of land can mean more than just physical displacement. Because land is so much connected to history and spirituality, the loss of it can lead

    Australian society is made up of a wide variety of groups. These groups of people have different cultural traditions and economic and social background. The success of the communication and interacting of these groups depends largely on the attitudes, values, and behaviour of people towards different groups. Racism is probably the first form of discrimination we think of. It is the belief that some races of people are inferior to other ‘races'. Racism usually involves

    Since abortion is impossible to defend on the merits (it kills a living human being, remember), "choice" has become the foundation of its political justification. Abortion advocates don't want to talk about facts or science, but they love to talk about "choice". "This is America...We're free to choose...You can't legislate morality!" Nothing has so clouded and confused the politics of this debate more than the misconstrued application of this one little term. The bottom line

    With the advancement of technology a number of serious ethical questions arise. One of the oldest and still most contested issues is the idea of abortion. Usually people are identified as “pro-choice,” in favor of abortion, or “pro-life,” against abortion.

    The controversy of abortion in the United States is unique because there seems to be no grounds of compromise between two completely polar sides. That is mostly because either a living human is or isn’t being killed. This is a case between life and liberty, but the ambivalence of the complexities of abortion make it hard to settle the two sides. There is much debate whether this is an action of life or death, and

    Every abortion claims the innocent life of an unborn child and is therefore not only morally wrong but also unconstitutional. The United States Constitution guarantees every citizen the right to life. However, it is currently legal for mothers to terminate the lives of their unborn children by means of an abortion. All religions recognize the sanctity of human life and abortion requires the termination of a human life. Performing abortions takes away the future
