Romero
Romero Reflection of Romero When the movie starts off, you are introduced to only a portion of the injustice that the El Salvadorians faced. The new president was supposed to be one that was elected into office. It was unimaginable to me that citizens who were on their way to vote were stopped. They were only allowed to proceed by foot. There is no way that any such think could occur here, in the United States. Its hard for me to accept that things like that actually happened, and still happen....

At first the Americans simply wanted the land that could be used to grow or create products. Then the Indians were viewed as hostile enemies.

Affirmative Action??
Affirmative Action?? Affirmative Action: What is affirmative action? This has been a very interesting question throughout the past thirty years.

Anaximander
Anaximander Anaximander About 530 AD the Neoplatonist Simplicius wrote an extensive commentary on Aristotle\'s Physics.

Between the time of Simplicius\' jotting and the present moment lies another mil...

Causes Of Political Violence
Causes Of Political Violence Political violence is like a festering wound, in that, without the aid of antibiotics the wound has the potential to depress the immune system and eventually overwhelm the individual, leading to death. In this analogy, antibiotics could represent forces that are always looking for the rogue virus\'s bent on the destruction of the whole body (society). I often wonder why people resort to violence, of any kind, to solve a particular problem. Questions can be asked of t...

Abortion
Abortion Abortion It is an undoubted fact of biological science that from the moment of conception, a new human life has been created. Only those who are irrational or ignorant of science doubt that when a human sperm fertilizes a human ovum, a new human being is created. That is why I disagree with aborting infants. If abortion is the taking of a human life and yet people feel that it should be just a personal matter between a woman and a doctor there seems to be two choices open to them. First...
