Reflection Paper http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/27/opinion/zelizer-six-ways-to-fight inequality/index.html?hpt=po_c1 In this article, “Six ways to Fight Inequality,” the author, Julian Zelizer suggests six steps that President Obama could propose that would effectively fight economic equality. Obama is striving to reach his goal of reinstalling the fundamental value of “hard work” using the power of his presidency. By “rebuilding the middle class and the ladders into the middle class, and reversing the trend toward economic bifurcation in this society,” (Zelizer) he hopes to eliminate the divide between the rich and the poor in America. The six steps include: raising minimum wage, expanding Medicare, and extending jobless benefits. Equality is defined as an idea that all people are to be equally protected under the law. Equality means equal rights for every individual regardless of differing factors they may have. Economic equality refers to an economy in which all individuals have equal financial wealth, societal status, and same opportunities. Power is the ability to influence the behavior of others or influence situations to result in one’s favorable outcome. Political ideologies can be defined as a body of ideas that reflect the interests and beliefs of society, government, and human nature. In the article, Zelizer refers to Obama’s concerns over the lack of economic equality and his aim to address and resolve the issue. He states, “…growing inequality and lack of upward mobility that has jeopardized middle-class America’s basic bargain—that if you work hard, you have a chance to get ahead” (Zelizer). Six proposals are provided that have the potential to help Obama achieve his goal of restoring economic equality in

My reflection paper is a reflection on what I have learned from my class and my understanding of the Christians views. In my paper today I will discuss two topics that deal with Jesus Christ. The first topic I will discuss is the fall of man. The next topic will be the death of Christ. These topics are very controversial and they are the ones that I struggled with in the beginning and/or struggle with today.
The Fall of Man
The theological definition for the fall of man is the transition of the…

Experimental Essay: The Dialectic

The basic premise is that you will write a series of thesis, antithesis arguments - point and counterpoint paragraphs. You will first argue a side of a discussion and then take up the opposing…
Religious Studies 101 and introduces scholars to theology: reflections on some of the central themes contained in the Bible. One of the Bible’s “paradigm narratives” that has influenced a host of theological reflections in the major “Western” traditions is that of the Exodus. Jewish reflection on the Exodus has produced themes of the Promised Land and its loss, including chosenness, covenant, exile, Diaspora (scattering) and return. Christian reflection on the Exodus has produced themes of pilgrimage, the…
