Prostitution Should be Legalized - During the 1700s, New York and Boston women began soliciting their bodies to soldiers stationed in the large cities. These women were mostly European immigrants who were looking for money to support themselves. Prostitution rose in these cities due to rapid urbanization, and an expansion of the male population. So, you may be thinking, “prostitution is illegal and evil, right?” Well, you are correct, but in my opinion, only by the standards of which you have been living in, which is that prostitution is illegal, and therefore, “risky business.” In my hometown of Elko, Nevada, population thirty-five thousand, prostitution is legal....   [tags: essays research papers] 706 words

Social Convention and Samuel Butler's Erewhon - Social Convention and Samuel Butler's Erewhon   There are many conceivable explanations that have the potential to rationalize the preservation of society through time.  These explanations clarify the fact that society, since its inception, has continued to exist.  I assert that the precise reason for this self-perpetuation is convention, and moreover, that convention encompasses all of the other possible explanations for this continuance.  Yet this conclusion merely follows from proper distinctions of terminology.  Real profundity stems from the examination of convention in relation to individuals who follow it.  I find that many individuals are not cognizant of the fact that society rests upon conventions.  Consequently, these individuals often exist with twisted ideas of reality.  Conclusions in this realm parallel closely with arguments made by Samuel Butler in his novel, Erewhon....   [tags: Samuel Butler Erewhon Essays]

A Plan for Reducing Water Pollution -    "Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children."    Kenyan proverb.  Solutions are like people, each one is complex as well as different.  Most every part time environmentalist can have a solution to any environmental problem that ails this planet.  That is not to say that they are always right.  Conversely, they are not always wrong either.  Having the solution is the first part, making the solution a reality is the second.  Water pollution is a problem that most everyone would agree does exist.  The toxic substances in the water can kill the plant life, animal life, and in some cases, the human life.  In Teluk Mengkuang, Sijangkang,  156 ponds filled with tiger prawns died after the farmers began to pump contaminated river water into them.  Some of these farmers lost an entire years income because of “10 drums of solid substance without labels believed to be chemicals and two drums with zinc oxide labels in the river” (Rajah 1).  In Prince William Sound, the Exxon Valdez ran a reef and dumped 11.2 million gallons of crude oil into the ocean.  “Seabirds and marine mammals, which are especially vulnerable to floating oil, suffered heavy mortalities.  It is estimated that from 100,000 to 300,000 birds were killed and Nyswander reported that some common murre (Uria aalge) colonies in the affected area were reduced by half.  Also, a estimated loss of 2,650 sea otters”  (Exxon 2).  “216,000 fish in the Clinch River” (Dawson Mercer 1), “neighborhood cats in Huntington Beach” (Schou 3), etc....   [tags: Environment Environmental Pollution Preservation]

Slavery had been ended in other nations with the stroke of a pen, and yet in the mighty United States the country was willing to go to war over the issue of whether slavery should remain. The southerners felt that it was their constitutional right to own slaves and did not see a time when they should be required to give up that right. However, upon the election of Lincoln as President, the southerners felt threatened, and felt their slave holding rights were being threatened, and in an effort to protect these rights they chose to secede from the union....   [tags: Slavery Civil War Racism American History Essays] 982 words
