    Pure freedom can only lead to disaster. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding demonstrates that when civilisation falls away and individuals are left to their own immediate desires, anarchy ensues in its most savage form. Golding uses the character development of Jack from civilized to savage, and the events leading to the deaths of Simon and Piggy to emphasize this theme. Jack, when first introduced is a nice choir boy, however throughout the novel after he the isolation from civilisation, progressively

    The general argument made by Henry David Thoreau in his work, Civil Disobedience, is that we should not follow laws that we do not morally agree to. More specifically, Thoreau argues that the government should not be heavily involved with people and should give more freedom. He writes “I have paid no poll-tax for six years. I was put into a jail once on this account, for one night; and, as I stood considering the walls of solid stone, two or three feet thick, the door of wood and iron, a foot thick

    After the recent death of Steve Jobs, I found it hard to imagine that a man so rich, so powerful and unbelievably smart died of a cancer that may have been treated! How can one be so intelligent that s/he questions the authority of doctors? The answer is just plain stubbornness. Steve Job believed that he would not only beat his cancer, but he would find a cure! With so many resources at his fingertips, it was to be an easy task. One may say that with all the money he had, doctors and scientists’

    Henry David Thoreau questioned how an unjust law should be handled, should it just be followed, should action be taken to fix the law while still obeying it, or should it just be transgressed completely. The idea that one of these answers is correct is a fallacy, and a bad assumption. The answer depends on the situation at hand. Any law that tramples on the rites of a person or a group of people is a law that should be ignored and protested and actively broken. On the other hand a law that just

    You Mean Anarchism Isn’t All About Chaos? Social activist Lucy Parsons once said, “Anarchism has but one infallible, unchangeable motto, "Freedom." Freedom to discover any truth, freedom to develop, to live naturally and fully." Anarchism then, is being able to live and not be ruled by a government, but instead to live by one’s own means in order to increase the good for oneself and others who share the common belief. Human beings are capable of making the decisions. Instead of being ruled by

    Beginning with Vasco Da Gama’s voyage in the 15th century, Europe has invested time, money and lives in colonizing much of the globe. Quickly, the Europeans established a classification system for the native populations they encountered. The closer the Native tribes were to European society the more “progressed” they were. Europeans viewed progress and evolution as products of living in settlements with permanent establishments. Today, European colonization has led to globalization and a world so

    Henry David Thoreau in his 1849 essay, “Civil Disobedience” claims that our top priority is to do the things that we think is right, and our second priority is to do what the government thinks is right. However, I believe this order that Thoreau suggest we follow is very disagreeable, and our political obligations should be prioritized in comparison to the other things we do. Our modern day political obligations are part of countless examples in which our priority should be to what our government

    Distancing Environmentalism from the UniBomber Ted Kaczynski There's been some talk on this list lately about how we should distance environmentalism from the Unabomber, and foil attempts by the media to unite the two. Shouldn't we also look inward, and see if in any way a love of ature does or can lead to antipathy to humans? he relationship between environmentalism and violence had been on my mind prior to Ted Kaczynski's arrest, because I had been reading _MindHunter_, John Douglas's
