Reasons for Disparity, the Perfect World of Liberals

- Liberals are a motley crew, but the DNA strand connecting most of them is an overpowering, almost obsessive-compulsive drive to make everything line up, balance, and come out even. Obsessed with rearranging, realigning, and controlling the natural order of everything and everyone on Earth to fit the perfect liberal-progressive model, they quickly find disillusionment. Their cockamamie ideas meet with scorn and ridicule in the real world of reason and common sense. While a very high percentage of conservatives are actually grownup liberals who found truth and reason accompanied their years, most liberals find peace and tranquility in a make-believe world....   [tags: Government]

Body Image: Picture Perfect and Photoshop

- In March, Lorde, a Grammy Award winning artist, found a photo shopped image of herself online and decided to post on twitter a non-edited one next to it, standing against the use of Photoshop, a program that can “enhance” and “clean up” images to the point of perfection. Her tweet was simple; “I find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. Remember flaws are okay.” The tweet contained two photos, featuring an altered photo where it seemed as if she had no pores and an untouched photo where her skin was just like the average Joe’s....   [tags: twitter, lorde, appearance, edited pictures]

Perfect Island Objection by Anselm of Canterbury

- Due to the preconceptions I have concerning Anselm’s Ontological Argument, as learnt through course research and lectures. I will like Descartes in his ‘First Meditation’, put these preconceptions to one side and present an essay that explores both sides of the argument in an attempt to reach an independent conclusion. However, I hope to reach the same conclusion as I had before – that is, that the Ontological Argument can be refuted on the basis that there exists a fundamental dissimilarity between the concept of existence in our minds, and that of existence in reality....   [tags: existence of god, ontological argument, descartes]

Three Characteristics Of A Perfect Competitive Firm

- A perfect competitive firm is defined as: “a market structure with many fully informed buyers and sellers of a standardized product and no obstacles to entry or exit of firms in the long run.” The four characteristics of a perfectly competitive firm include the following: it must consist of many buyers and sellers, firms sell a particular commodity, buyers and sellers are fully informed about the price and availability of all resources and products, and firms and resources are freely mobile. These four characteristics contribute to the reason why a perfectly competitive firm is unable to become a “price-maker” (perfectly competitive firms are unable to make up their own prices) and must be a...   [tags: Supply and demand, Price elasticity of demand]

Analysis of Othello's Iago, The Perfect Villain

- How does one create the perfect villain for a story. What qualities are needed in such a character. A good place to start when constructing a villain is to look at William Shakespeare’s villain in Othello, a man called Iago. Iago is wonderfully devious. Throughout the play, he not only poisons Othello’s vision of Desdemona, he does this with no one, excepting Roderigo, the wiser. There are several reasons that make Iago such a terrifying villain. Shakespeare gave certain qualities to his creation that made Iago more than just a evil character....   [tags: William Shakespeare, Othello]
