I disagree with Michael Scott view that many illegal immigrants are taking American jobs, because as recent research shown only 20 percent of Americans says immigrants are taking jobs away from citizens—jobs we do not necessarily want to do. Michael Scott describes illegal immigration as “unmerciful stealth that generates mountains of rotting garbage, piles of discarded diapers, food containers and plastic water bottles, and sundry filth everywhere—exacerbated by the stench of excrement, poisoned (or throat-slit) pets and livestock, torn down fences, and lots of stolen property that wasn’t tied down.” In his article “America Must Take Stronger Measures to Halt Illegal Immigration,” he goes on to dehumanize illegal immigrants, but overlooks the fact that illegal immigrants are human who leave behind their families in there native land to come and work and have a taste of the American dream, where many are token advantages because there illegal immigrants that can not complain or do anything about it. Many Americans complain about illegal... ... middle of paper ... ...rently than the native born among you; have the same love for him as for yourself; for you too were once aliens in the land of Egypt.” (DeCosse) There are many disadvantages, but there are more good than bad, and immigration is not a “relentless flood” that threatens America—the land of the free and opportunities.

The major industries that would be publicized include energy, agriculture, healthcare and education. Some industries, such as communications (internet, cell phones etc.) would not be in order to prevent state abuse of them, but all big monopolies would be abolished. Over the past few hundred years, when capitalism was our planets dominant financial system, human beings were turned into resources to be exploited for profit, and the vast majority of our plane... ... middle of paper ... ... certainly not how we are intended to live, and thus to claim that socialism is the radical ideal is preposterous. Capitalism has failed because it has allowed a small group of people to exploit people and land as nothing more than objects to be consumed for profit, leaving a tortured populace and a wrecked environment.
Henry David Thoreau believed that a certain war tax was unjust during the Mexican War and he refused to pay it. This then lead to his arrest and one day in jail where he wrote the essay "Civil Disobedience." Martin Luther King Jr. on the other hand participated in an act of civil disobedience for a much larger and important reason. He was fighting against segregation in America and for equal rights for all American citizens, including black that had been oppressed in America for over 300 years. Loved and followed by thousands, King sought equal rights for both himself and for others through non-violent marches and demonstrations, which in turn led to equal rights for all American citizens including blacks.
Unfortunately, The United States has always treated immigration as a problem. This ideology began during the turn of the century when America absorbed 13 million immigrants, who were met with a hostile fear and prejudice by the natives. John Higham, a leading immigration scholar', offers reasons why he believes America's ideas about race changed during the late nineteenth century to support America's more restrictive (racist) immigration policy. It is a primitive human nature to reject something new, basically out of fear of the unknown. Author Madison Grant and President Calvin Coolidge illustrate these ignorance's best with their direct excerpts from the era.
Sartre states “We mean that man first exists: he materializes in the world, encounters himself, and only afterwards defines himself. If man as the existentialist sees he is not definable, it is because to begin with, he is nothing. He will not be anything until later, and the he will be, what he makes of himself” (Sartre 22). What Sartre is saying here is
They believe that man was indefinable at first; "he first appears, then defines himself." (1) There are no set plans as to how a man must live. He must make his own decisions and move towards his future with no help [from the outside world. The main idea of existential is what Sartre simply stated as…"I am responsible for myself and for everyone else. I am creating a certain image of my own choosing.
Marx's conclusion is that in so far as the state continues to claim to represent universality it can do so only by neglecting all particular interests, divorcing the state from the social needs of real individuals. 'This point of view is certainly abstract, but the 'abstraction' is that of the political state as Hegel has presented it. It is also atomistic, but its atomism is that of society itself. The 'point of view' cannot be concrete when its object is 'abstract'. The atomism into which civil society is plunged by its political actions is a necessary consequence of the fact that the community, the communistic entity in which the individual exists, civil society, is separated from the state, or in other words: the political state is an abstraction from civil society' (Marx CHDS EW 1975:145).
O’Rourke argues against the public school system by citing evidence of increased spending per student across the nation, insignificant gains on standardized test scores, and pointing out that there is no correlation in spending and testing. O’Rourke appeals to the logos and ethos of the reader but fails to appeal to the pathos by building a clear bias and agenda in his essay. The purpose of this article is to convince Americans that the public school system is failing students nationwide and that it needs to be ended. O’Rourke boldly argues that there is no need to mend public schools, only end them. The public school system has been serving America for years, but O’Rourke clearly believes that it is time to put an end to them.
But is it worth sacrificing the wellbeing of the nation over this? Do we really want to look our kids in the eye and tell them that the nation’s economy was ruined over the Presidents penis? How could this impeachment be good for the country? Is it somehow going to make the country stronger for people to see that even the President is not above the law. Every day people see cops fixing tickets, judges fixing tickets, politicians getting the children of their “friends” off the hook when they screwed up and there are hundreds of other ways people in this country avoid the consequences of the law.
Many people felt unsure with him as president and, therefore, felt unsafe about how he ran the economy. This caused many people to pull out of the stock market, which caused businesses to fail. Michael Moore's introduction to Stupid White Men may not be completely factual, but he certainly has a point. Twenty first century America is going downhill and people are just sitting around watching it fall. Bush did not receive the majority vote in the 2000 election, but he did not cause all that is wrong in America.
