Capitalism versus Communism - Eliminating Poverty Today Poverty is everywhere and no matter how hard our government tries to eliminate it, it simply cannot. To do so it must first reformat itself so that it may do its job in a more efficient manor, thus helping all aspects of life. Converting our current system into a capitalistic government would in fact help alleviate the current situation. Contrary to widely held beliefs, capitalism is not a system which exploits a large portion of society for the sake of a small minority....   [tags: Economics Economy]

An Analysis of The End of Something - An Analysis of The End of Something   One area of literature emphasized during the Modernist era was the inner struggle of every man. Novels written before the 20th century, such as Moll Flanders and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, dealt with external conflict, a conflict the reader could visualize in an action.

Consequences of Environmental Regulations - Consequences of Environmental Regulations  Pollution can be defined many ways.  The dictionary defines the act of polluting as:  “to make unhealthily impure.”  But what exactly does the word “unhealthy” imply?  Take, for example, a paper mill.  Trees are cut down to make paper.  In the act of making paper, the mill dumps byproducts into the water of a nearby lake; and spews smoke into the air.  The act of cutting down trees is unhealthy to the animals that use the forest as their habitat.  Dumping various toxins into the lake makes the lake unhealthy for swimming.  Smoke in the air causes local residents to cough.  These are some of the unhealthy effects of making paper.  However, consider what might happen if the government stepped in to regulate or shut down the plant.  Jobs would be lost.  Workers might be unable to put food on their tables....   [tags: Environment Environmental Pollution Preservation]

Political Liberalism - Political Liberalism Norman Davies describes liberalism as "being developed along two parallel tracks, the political and the economic. Political liberalism focused on the essential concept of government by consent. In its most thoroughgoing form it embraced republicanism, though most liberals favored a popular, limited, and fair-minded monarch as a factor encouraging stability." (A History of Europe, p.802) At the core of liberalism was the idea of freedom of thought and expression. People were now not only able to think for themselves, but also express those same thoughts....   [tags: Politics Political Science Liberal Essays] 1117 words
