    Coercion, and subsequently the right to use violence, is the state’s sole method for functioning and existing. Without it, the state is powerless to exist credibly. Thus, at the core of political theory is the argument to justify the state’s use of coercion; without this, the state cannot be ethically justifiable. However, can a violent, or otherwise morally dubious act such as coercion, ever be truly justified? If enough good comes of it, surely it could be mitigated, but how much ‘good’ is enough

    Respect, Coercion and Religious Belief In this paper, I articulate and evaluate an important argument in support of the claim that citizens of a liberal democracy should not support coercive policies on the basis of a rationale they know other citizens reasonably reject. I conclude that that argument is unsuccessful. In particular, I argue that religious believers who support coercive public policies on the basis of religious convictions do not disrespect citizens who reasonably regard such religious

    Only fourteen years old. Sitting in a cold room with an intimidating police officer being questioned for 26 hours. No food, water or time to clear his mind. Young and weak minded. Scared and mentally drained from all the terrorizing and feelings of guilt. With the thoughts of going to jail trembling over his mind, he was hesitant with no other choice but to confess...falsely. By the time he was released, his parents were dead. With no chance to see their son grow up to be a potentially great man

    is filled with themes that help us understand the world around us. In this essay I am going to talk about four themes that Orwell discussed in this story. They are power, totemism, coercion, and violence. Power leads to absolute power, the job of totemism is to keep the people loyal, and after that doesn't work coercion comes in effect by using violence. There is no definite message that Orwell is trying to point out about power, instead he lets us get a view of the negative effects of power. He

    China's One Child Policy

    Lack of choice in an area as fundamental as reproduction can never be popular, and coercion cannot be condoned. With the evidence that more couples would opt for a smaller family, though, it is encouraging that the need for coercion at a local level is diminishing. But there are other problems too. Firstly, the policy is resulting in an excess of boys. Data from the in depth fertility survey for 1979-84, when the policy was at its most stringent, put the male: female ratio of reported births at

    Government Control of the Female Body Internationally, issues revolving around the female body and reproduction are extremely controversial. For a woman, her body is a very private matter. At the same time, however, a woman's body and her reproduction rights are the center of attention in many public debates. Several questions regarding women's reproductive rights remain unanswered. How much control do women have over their bodies? What kind of rules can be morally imposed upon women? And who

    Tolerance, Liberalism, and Community ABSTRACT: The liberal principle of tolerance limits the use of coercion by a commitment to the broadest possible toleration of rival religious and moral conceptions of the worthy way of life. While accepting the communitarian insight that moral thought is necessarily rooted in a social self with conceptions of the good, I argue that this does not undermine liberal tolerance. There is no thickly detailed way of life so embedded in our self-conceptions that
