Over the past ten to twenty years a big issue has been made over a person1s right to commit suicide or not. The American courts have had to deal with everything from assisted suicides to planned suicides, and whether the constitution gives the American people the right to take their own lives or whether it says they have the power to allow someone else to take their lives. They have had to determine in some cases whether or not homicide charges needed to be brought up and others times whether o...

Why I Believe In Voluntary Euthanasia There are at least two forms of suicide. One is \'emotional suicide\', or irrational self-murder in all of it complexities and sadness.

At the end of the Baroque Period in the eighteenth and nineteenth century art was divided into two distinct categories, Romanticism and Realism. Romanticism, the passion-filled works illustrating stimulating accounts of specific events with symbolic gestures emerging from the scene, separated itself from the more politically correct stance taken by Realists. A fine example of Romanticism is Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa. The brutal scene, set afloat on the wild seas, is emphasized by the chiar...

U.S. high schools are not properly preparing kids for the college experience. The primary purpose of a high school in the United States is to get kids into college.

One good example that proves just how much leeway secondary education offers students is that on average, professors at the high sc...

Prisons take the nonviolent offender and make him live by violence. They take the nonviolent offender and make him a hardened killer....
