This attention has actually done little on a large scale to actually curb the rise of the issue. I don’t feel this issue is a government issue, however I believe it has become one due to the scale the issue has risen to. Even with all that has been studied on this issue little is actually known regarding the true underlying predictors. (Flores 2013) So considering the scale of the issue we face with the childhood obesity issue I feel that not only does the government at all levels need to be involved in some way but that the U.S....   [tags: government attention, childhood obesity]

John Stuart Mill and Suicide

- One of the largest influences on modern American political philosophy, John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty argues that society and the government is too stringent regarding people’s behavior. These strict expectations, he claims, limits individualism and genius, both vital to humanity’s progress (62). To rectify this, Mill believes that as long as one’s behavior doesn’t pose any direct threat to another, it should not be limited. While society may not approve of a member’s actions, it shouldn’t attempt to interfere or use social methods of conditioning behavior such as embarrassment (77)....   [tags: social issues, government, behaviors]

Humanitarian Intervention, NATO and International Law

- Much recent discourse surrounding humanitarian intervention has focused on the responsibility to protect (R2P). Prevention is a key component for good international relations and few would say it is not important, but as evidence to date would show prevention is very ineffective, the legality of military intervention still needs to be debated, as to date there is no consensus. For any intervention to be legitimate, whether unilateral or multilateral, it must comply with international law. So as not to cause any confusion, any situation in which an “intervention” is done with the permission or by request of the state being intervened, should be considered humanitarian assistance as state sove...   [tags: Military Intervention]

The Evolution of State and Local Government

- The Evolution of State and Local Government If you ask most people today what level of government they have the most involvement with and that impacts their lives the most, they will undoubtedly respond with, “the State and local governments”; this is true for most Americans. From police and fire protection, to transportation, to conducting business, the citizens of America depend on their State and local governments to respond to their increasing needs.

Utilitarianism in Government

- In its political philosophy utilitarianism provides an alternative to theories of natural law and the social contract by basing the authority of government and the sanctity of individual rights upon their utility, or measure of happiness gained. As an egalitarian doctrine, where everyone’s happiness counts equally, the rational, relatively straightforward nature of utilitarianism offers an attractive model for democratic government. It offers practical methods for deciding the morally right course of action - “ action is right as it tends to promote happiness, wrong as it tends to diminish it, for the party whose interests are in question” (Bentham, 1780)....   [tags: Government]
