Capitalism versus Communism - Eliminating Poverty Today Poverty is everywhere and no matter how hard our government tries to eliminate it, it simply cannot.

The Taint of Money in “Life in the Iron Mills” - Rebecca Harding Davis wrote “Life in the Iron Mills” in the mid-nineteenth century in part to raise awareness about working conditions in industrial mills. With the goal of presenting the reality of the mills’ environment and the lives of the mill workers, Davis employs vivid and concrete descriptions of the mills, the workers’ homes, and the workers themselves. Yet her story’s realism is not objective; Davis has a reformer’s agenda, and her word-pictures are colored accordingly. One theme that receives a particularly negative shading in the story is big business and the money associated with it....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Davis] 1644 words

Kant’s deontological perspective implies people are sensitive to moral duties that require or prohibit certain behaviors, irrespective of the consequences (Tanner, Medin, & Iliev, 2008).

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]
