Tolerance, Liberalism, and Community - Tolerance, Liberalism, and Community ABSTRACT: The liberal principle of tolerance limits the use of coercion by a commitment to the broadest possible toleration of rival religious and moral conceptions of the worthy way of life. While accepting the communitarian insight that moral thought is necessarily rooted in a social self with conceptions of the good, I argue that this does not undermine liberal tolerance. There is no thickly detailed way of life so embedded in our self-conceptions that liberal neutrality is blocked at the level of reflection....   [tags: Tolerance Liberal Community Essays]

Tolerance - Toleration is a familiar term today; having multiethnic friends, unusual religious beliefs, and unorthodox style and morals is totally acceptable, even chic. In pop culture, a cute, gay, vegan, Buddhist, environmentalist is the epitome of the trendsetting “hipster.” Even so, a lot of judgment is passed by a lot of people a lot of the time. Groups that once were discriminated against have now come to discriminate against emerging cultures and subcultures in our society, and these subcultures discriminate and stereotype right back....   [tags: Ethics ]

Deism and Changes in Religious Tolerance in America - Deism and Changes in Religious Tolerance in America       Religious conscience in America has evolved considerably since the first settlers emigrated here from Europe. Primary settlements were established by Puritans and Pilgrims who believed "their errand into the wilderness [America] was above all else a religious errand, and all institutions - town meeting, school, church, family, law-must faithfully reflect that fact" (Gaustad 61). However, as colonies grew, dissenters emerged to challenge Puritan authority; indeed, many of them left the church to join untraditional religious sects such as "the Ranters, the Seekers, the Quakers, the Antinomians, and the Familists" (Westbrook 26)....   [tags: Deism Religious Tolerance]

However, it seems that zero tolerance is now the most widely used and most controversial policy that has came into effect.

Zero Tolerance - Zero Tolerance: Doubtful Indeed Many schools around the country have been faced with violence and even actual deaths. Take the incident at Columbine, for example. Many schools for this very reason have proposed and in some cases even imposed a policy called, The Zero Tolerance Policy. The article, ”Taking Zero Tolerance to the Limit” by Jesse Katz, is about the absolute ban of drugs and weapons in schools. It doesn’t work. It doesn’t work because it punishes everyone for the problems of few, it’s too extreme and there is still no clear line between what is a drug and what is a weapon....   [tags: essays research papers] 774 words

Death Penalty: Zero Tolerance - Just the very mentioning of the “death penalty” can bring out a fury in most people. Those for the death penalty argue that it creates deterrence, punishment, and justice. While those that oppose the death penalty argue about the risk of executing an innocent person or life in prison is a worst punishment. Crime is an obvious element of society and something needs to deter people from committing criminal acts. The question lies in the methods and actions in which to deal with each crime.

Hinduism, Tolerance, and Individuality - Hinduism is often viewed as a particularly tolerant religion. The lack of a single omniscient God, absence of a prophet, and the open worship of what may look like many Gods may tell a tale of open worship, individuality within religion, and a peaceful, tolerant way of life. Without further examining what Hinduism entails, this may seem like the perfect religion. When the impression of superiority is looked at with a little skepticism, the pretty picture is marred by the deep scratches of discrimination, sexism, and elitism....   [tags: Hinduism]

The Zero Tolerance Policy: Justified or Unreasonable? - The zero tolerance policy has become a national controversy in regards to the solid proven facts that it criminalizes children and seems to catch kids who have no intention of doing harm. Although, there has been substantial evidence to prove that the policies enforced in many schools have gone far beyond the extreme to convict children of their wrongdoing. The punishments for the act of misconduct have reached a devastating high, and have pointed students in the wrong direction. Despite the opinions of administrators and parents, as well as evidence that zero tolerance policies have deterred violence in many public and private schools, the rules of conviction and punishment are unreasonable and should be modified....   [tags: Behavior Management ]

Many reasons have been proposed to explain the rapid spread of this non-indiginous species. For example, it has been shown that H. sanguineus has longer spawning periods along the mid-Atlantic coast than it does in its natural habitat in the western Pacific Ocean, due to a more favorable climate (Epifanio et al 1998)....   [tags: essays research papers] 2505 words
