Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela - History is sated with some of our forefathers’ dreams and aspirations. Many of whom are now considered great leaders. Several of these dreams were realized either while these great leaders were alive or after they died. It should be borne in mind that these aspirations were materialized because of firm beliefs and philosophies which were indoctrinated into the minds and crafted on the brains of their followers. “I have a dream” as laid down in the profound speech of Martin Luther King Jr. in August 1963; Ghandi’s belief of a changed Indian society; Nelson Mandela’s firm belief in freedom, to name a few, were realized decades after....   [tags: inequalities and injustices, history]

Why are People Attracted to Destructive Leaders? - ... All human beings have a desire for a safe living environment with food and shelter.

Capital Punishment Must Be Abolished - The death penalty is not the most effective form of punishment for criminals. The death penalty is hypocritical; it condemns killing by killing people.

To assess the achievements of Louis IX we must try to think his thoughts. We cannot make assessments based on what we perceive to be achievements in this age, as this will invariably lead us to false conclusions. From a detached perspective Louis was a golden king. His administration was second to none. His reputation internationally was unexcelled both in his role as arbiter for other countries, peacemaker in his own and, as William Chester Jordan remarked on his securing of the Languedoc "his rapid assimilation of this regi...   [tags: European History] 1659 words
