Redford’s Concept of Democratic Morality - Redford’s concept of democratic morality as a cornerstone of the public organization is befitting when analyzing the indoctrination of ethical standards, especially in governmental bureaucracy. As governmental entities compelled to uphold democracy, their legitimacy is derived from a democracy and they are therefore compelled to embrace it (Denhardt, 2007). The standards held by these organizations are derived from democratic rule, perhaps more so in the form of representative bureaucracy. It functions in such a way, that our views and agendas are to be legislated through our elected officials, and then enacted in law....   [tags: Government]

Shakespeare's Interpretation of Women in "Measure for Measure" - Shakespeare's interpretation of women in Measure for Measure very much reflects society's opinion of women at the time, which was that men have more freedom and should be given more respect that women.

However, although the society gave men more rights than women, Measure for Measure demonstrates that they also had more responsibilities.

Realizing Whether or Not Behaviour is Ethical - Realizing Whether or Not Behaviour is Ethical In order to be able to answer this question we must first define what ethics is. Most of the dictionaries and philosophers define it as “a science of morality”; it’s the study of the general nature of morals and of the specific moral choices to be made by a person. And therefore in order to answer how we can know whether our behaviour is ethical, we must find out whether our behaviour is moral. However, there are several different ways to approach this question....   [tags: Ethics Values] 675 words

The Decommission of the IRA's Weapons - The Decommission of the IRA's Weapons The issue of the IRA decommissioning has been at the forefront of the news the past few weeks and there has been a great deal of scepticism questioning the validity of the IRA’s claim that they have put their weapons beyond use. As there is no evidence to back up the IRA’s claim the doubters will ask "How we can believe that the IRA has decommissioned its weapons if there is no hard photographic evidence?". This is a promising, hopeful time for peace in a country devastated by sectarian violence and the Republicans will argue that it is time for the Unionists to accept that the Republican movement is legitimate and democratic....   [tags: Papers] 470 words

Analysis of History - Analysis of History "History is the memory of things said and done. Every man is a historian." I agree that history includes everything said and done, to a certain extent. There are levels of history. The relevance to each individual's life determines the significance and importance of the certain event. Also, it should only be studied, perhaps, if the event has a certain impact on the person who is studying it. If an action proved to be important to an individual in the present or the future, that incident would be a sort of personal history....   [tags: American America History] 529 words

Walter Lippmann's The Public Philosophy - Walter Lippmann's The Public Philosophy      Walter Lippmann begins his The Public Philosophy by expressing his concern for the state of the Western Liberal Democracies. The West, he writes, suffers from "a disorder from within." This disorder has its roots in the long peace between 1812 and 1914, and was further exascurbated by the great population increase of that era and the coinciding industrial revolution. The latter changed the nature of armed struggle, which in turn intensified the "democratic malady." The situation Lippmann describes is the "paralysis of governments," the inability of the state to make difficult and unpopular decisions....   [tags: The Public Philosophy] 444 words

Depending on the appearance something has we form an opinion about it. Sometimes the appearance something has can mislead one in forming an accurate opinion about it. In Macbeth, Shakespeare shows us that things are not always as they appear to be. This is shown through the duplicity of Macbeth and his wife, the kings sons and the servants being blamed for Duncan's death and King Duncan's inaccurate opinions.

In the nineteenth century liberals were often opposed to democracy as they saw it as a threat to individual rights - the people are not a single entity but rather a collection of individuals with different opinions and interests, and so it is impossible for every view and opinion to be respected. Since the twentieth century most liberals have come round to the idea of democracy, and support it, but they still have reservations....   [tags: Papers] 1083 words
