Liberalism is strict the notion of equality for all individuals and the recognition of their voice in society. The source states “at every opportunity, the principles of liberalism should be challenged”. The interpretation of the source would say that is it disagreeing with liberalism and its principles. The source would agree that economic equality, co-operation, and collective interest are the principles that should be seen in society. Since liberalism supports individualism, the source would be agreeing with the opposite of liberalism, collectivism. Collectivism is the notion of the government playing a significant role in society. The source would agree with the philosopher Thomas Hobbes and his idea of complete government control in society. Those who disagree with the source would agree with philosophers like John Locke and Adam Smith and their ideas of being an open society ran by the people. The source would disagree with the notion of a free market economy. The source states that liberalism is the cause of the world’s economic, political, and social inequality. There are many examples in present day history when liberalism is or should have been the way to run a nation or nation-state. In Nazi Germany, liberal principles were ignored leading to the death of many people. Also in history there was the development of labor unions and that significantly changed the working world in a positive way. The source would disagree with labor unions and how it gave the individuals power to enforce liberal principles onto their superiors. Labor unions support the important principles like individual rights, economic freedom, and self-interest. Having liberalism implemented in society has been shown many times to improve society.

Anorexia Nervosa is a psychiatric disorder characterized by an unrealistic fear or weight gain, self-starvation, and conspicuous distortion of body image. The individual is obsessed with becoming increasingly thinner and limits food intake to the point of their health is highly at risk. (Gillard, 18). Any eating disorder does not only affect women, there are rare cases that do show that men as well, do suffer from anorexia. Although there is no exact reason that causes this eating disorder, there are a lot of influences that cause young women to fall under anorexia. The individual suffering from anorexia biologically has biochemical disturbances in the brain that leads to their inability to maintain normal weight (Christopher, Repovich, 153). The existences of abnormal amount of brain neurotransmitters are chemical messengers in the brain that transmits nerve impulses between nerve cells (153). Our environment and culture also plays a big role by the media portraying thin models, celebrities in Hollywood have beautiful faces, beautiful bodies. “In addition… correlation between athletic activities that emphasizes the physique, such as track, tennis, gymnastics, cheerleading, and dance” (P. Brown, 162). It’s not so hard to understand why women are suffering from anorexia; the ide...
In 2006, an article was published by three doctoral students, (Tricia Seifert, Jerri Drummond, and Ernest Pascarella) at the University of Iowa, highlighting a research study undergone by the three concerning the role of institutional types, with emphasis on historically black colleges (HBC’s) in African-American students’ experiences. The findings, as published in the Journal of College Student Development showed that students who attend HBC’s report greater levels of good practices than their peers at other institutions of higher education. These findings suggested a greater emphasis on the teaching of students, as defined by the mission statements of these particular institutions.
This paper examines the struggle African American students are more likely to face at a predominantly white institution (PWIs) than at a historically black college or university (HBCUs). Each author has his or her own take on this hypothesis; most of the author’s studies suggest that African American students have a hard time adjusting to an environment at a PWI (Littleton 2003). However, African American students at HBCUs tend to be at ease with their learning environment. Though many of the author’s agree with one another there are other authors whose studies come to the conclusion that race is not a factor in college education anymore. That being the case on average African American population is approximately four percent at PWIs (Littleton 2003).
Although the trial of People v. Sweet was a clear legal victory for Ossian, his wife, his friends and all others involved in the defense, the story as a whole was a heart wrenching and grim calamity for the Sweets. Not to mention the NAACP’s failed initiative to champion the case in hopes that it would foreshadow a bigger, nation-wide residential segregation victory in the Supreme Court and maybe even a civil rights movement. After Henry’s acquittal none of the men spent day in jail for the night of September 9th 1925 but both trials didn’t have the effect the NAACP planned and ended playing an insignificant role in the big picture of residential segregation and minority rights as a whole. After the trial of Henry Sweet, Robert Toms announced the end of the trials, People v. Sweet would never see another day in court. However much relief it was to hear that, it was small victory compared to the permanent damage the trials inflicted on the lives of the defendants, especially Ossian Sweet.
Ric Keller once said “Historically black colleges and universities have played an important role in enriching the lives of not just African Americans, but our entire country.” For years all the way up until now African American students are faced with the decision whether to attend a predominantly white institution or a historically black college or university. Many argue that HBCUs lack cutting-edge academic and non academic programs, which tends to devalue HBCUs graduates and their degree. African Americans who graduate from a HBCU tend to have higher academic, social, and occupational aspirations than those who do not attend an HBCU.
This paper explores the effectiveness of African Americans students G.P.A. while in attendance at HBCUs. Despite widely ranging methods, data sources, and professional disciplines, theories and analyses scholars have stated that HBCUs make a distinctive contribution in improving African Americans G.P.A (RHE96). HBCU is an acronym for Historically Black Colleges and Universities that existed before 1964 with historic missions with an emphasis on educating African Americans (ed.gov07). Experts found that African American students who attended HBCUs regularly before the 70’s G.P.A might have been better and they were more likely to graduate when compared to white institutions (RHE96).
“College campuses are not dominated by widespread racial/ethnic segregation and the racial/ethnic clustering that does occur isn’t impeding intergroup contact.” (578, Hoeffner and Hoeffner). Throughout the essay, the writer continues to provide facts and sources on the information that diversity is not a problem on college campuses. She quotes evidence that states that college students are getting a “variety of positive educational outcomes that result from being educated in a diverse environment.” (578, Hoeffner and Hoeffner).

...d I attended Northern Illinois University in Illinois, a predominantly white institution. She attended Central because she believed like many black students, that attending a HBCU would promote unity, self confidence, and that her educational experience would be geared towards her as an African American. Although the school like many HBCUs lack funding to give her any grants or scholarships she determined to finance her education acquired loans. I however, chose differently. While I sometimes feel that I am missing out on the cultural experience of a lifetime, I received an enormous financial aid package from Northern Illinois University. In August of 2003 my friend transferred to Northern because she could not afford Central for a second year. Although a student's environment is very important in the end a student's success is dependent solely upon that student.
Murdock’s idealised view of the family could now be seen as outdated as it is no longer the most common family structure in Britain today although it can still be used as an argument against other perspectives. While there have been many changes to the structure of the family and the roles performed within it, the nuclear family remains an ideal for the majority of people in society.
