1. King cares about what is happening in Birmingham because he says that what affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Birmingham is one of the most segregated city in the US at that time. No one should feel like an outsider in America, according to King. So he wanted to help them out 2. They picked a time near Easter for direct action because besides Christmas time, it’s the main shopping period of the year. They wanted to bring pressure to put on the merchants that there should be changes made. 3. He insist on direct action in Birmingham because it dramatizes the issue and rings tension to the community to make a situation so that their only choice is to negotiate 4. It’s impossible for blacks to continue to “wait” because they have been waiting for more than 340 years for change, and not a lot has changed. Waiting for them means that there’s little chance for anything to ever happen. 5. Personal examples the King included was about his daughter asking questions about why things are the way they are for black people. 6. A just law is a manmade code that squares with the moral law or law of God. An unjust law is a human law that is out of harmony with moral laws. It’s important because it gives segregators false superiority 7. A law is unjust if it degrades a human’s personality 8. King says that everything Hitler did was “legal” because helping out Jews was considered “illegal” 9. King is disappointed in the white moderate because they are more devoted to order than justice. They would rather have peace, than helping blacks to the path of freedom. 10. People should not condemn direct action for leading to violence because they only brought up the tension that’s been building up. They only wanted to protect the people who were victims 11. The danger of black…
The war that I think has some of the same similarities as the Biblical Just War is Operation Iraqi Freedom. It all stated back in October of 2001 and as many would say it is still going on to this present day. The war started when the Iraqi terrorists engaged in an unannounced attack on the US soil killing innocent people. The Americans declared war on the Iraqi nation out of retaliation. The U.S. has used and is still using all of its power to stabilize the country for the better. The current president…
So many of our young children are having babies when they’re just babies themselves. Teenagers do not realize the consequences of bringing a life into this world. There are so many responsibilities and hardships to having a baby that our young people do not realize till it’s too late.
Television and social media make having a baby look fun and easy, but in reality there is much more to it. They do not reveal the night time awakenings, crying, cleaning duties, and all the other difficult…
life. As you can see in the painting the only people in these solons are men, not children and not women. When you think of women and children you think of joy, happiness and life so as I look at this work I think to my self as if I were these men. I just got off a 12-15 hour shift and rather than go home to a house full of children and a wife that is going to complain I’d rather meet with my friends and co-workers at this bar and talk about how horrible work and life is. To reiterate mostly, depressing…
consider Anne which hurt her more after Anne’s death. She had always been fastened to the idea that Anne didn’t care and wouldn’t care about anything she did. But with Barb’s revelation came a wave of guilt that she wasn’t prepared for. She learns just how much Anne had cherished even the smallest gestures of acknowledgement she would send to Otter Lake. Along with all of that, she also learns about how Barb felt about their mother’s thoughts on Janice by saying “You were the ideal, I was the reality…
“This is Just to Say,” William Carlos Williams
We love this poem for its sheer deliciousness. It reads like a piece of the most beautifully written found poetry — a note taped to the icebox door. Succinct, simple, and yet juicy, the limited lines profess a narrative far beyond what actually exists on the page.
I have eaten
that were in

they were delicious…
A JUST WAR?
Was the United States justified in going to war against Mexico in 1846? I did a whole lot of research and read so much information about the events that led up to the United States decision to declare war on Mexico and I have come to the conclusion that my answer to that question would be no, absolutely not. I do not believe that the United States had the right to declare war against Mexico. I strongly disagree with people using such violence just to get something they lust…
Ethics – Just War
a.) Explain how the followers of the religion you have studied justify going to war
The issue of war, and how we relate to it, has been prominent in human civilisation all throughout history. The last century has seen the world through two worlds wars, plus plenty of smaller-scale ones too, that lead Robin Gill to say that “War has presented the 20th Century with perhaps its most crucial moral problem.” Even recently, there have civil wars, religious wars, those for economic resources…
1. Absolute Renunciation of all force, violence
2. Pragmatic Rejection of certain situations of
killing or violence.
Let’s just briefly examine these:
