Both letter to the editor and editorial staff offer position that are supported by both facts and opinions. The letter explores to urges the new reusable bag ordinance while the editorial staff argues that they are serious about making Proposition 328 mandatory in every store. While both side make an acceptable case, it is clear that the letter provides a better argument.
Feuerbach believed that man was not made in God’s image; rather we made a god or deities in our image. We created religion to benefit our own needs and projected our beliefs onto humanity. Despite human beings having multiple fears, our biggest fear is death and Christianity was a way of promising eternal life after death. Therefore, Feuerbach believed the reason for this projected image was to push human self-consciousness. He felt that divinity shouldn’t be allied with God, but with humanity.
Feuerbach believes that religion has it’s built in destruction and that it will give way to humans being able to believe in our own capabilities. He writes,"If man is to find contentment in God, he must find himself in God." (The Essence of Christianity). Religion is humanity’s consciousness of themselves as beings and therefore humans are God. When Feuerbach says “religion is the alienation of man from
Mark Zepezauer’s article, “MK-Ultra from the Book the CIAs Greatest Hits” discusses the psychology experiment conducted by the CIA, MK-Ultra. The MK-ultra conducted a study that used mind control on their participants. Zepezauer recounts the events of the CIA tries to defend their stance by claiming they used the method in response to the brainwashing from the Chinese that was happening in the fifties. He says that mind control practices took place prior to 1953, but became popular after the experiment. He continues to explain how the CIA would use drugs, including LSD, and test them on their patients that were unaware of what tests were upon them. Zepezauer reveals that multiple suicides also took place in response to the given substances. He deliberated how the CIA rented out apartments and used prostitutes in their study. They used them to slip the drugs into their client’s pockets and the CIA would look through one-way mirrors to see the client’s response. Once the auditors discovered this, the MK-Ultra shut down and renamed the MKSEARCH. Mark Zepezauer
The Quinnipiac University poll was done during early September to test the waters before the first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump. The sample size was roughly 960, supposedly voters from across the nation with a margin of error of +- 3.2 which isn’t horrible. The numbers look fine and because it was a nationwide poll, the possibility of getting a fair and accurate cross section of views is fairly high, that being said there are a few issues with this poll that cause me to be concerned with the accuracy of this poll for many reasons.
Professor George Frisvold develops his argument by illustrating the facts through graphs. His use of statistics supports his point that current agricultural systems are insufficient in conserving water. Because of the current climate change, water conservation has gained importance. Frisvold presents analyses of current strategies and suggests how national level changes in order to provide the change in the government’s involvement in water conservation in agriculture. The intended audience is readers that are interested in the environment, and more specifically interested or involved in the conservation of natural resources. The issue of agriculture’s involvement in the environment has many different effects. In this precis writing process
The problem with the belief that people are morally responsible, for what they do and act, revolves around humans not actually having free will because their actions are already determined. When people make decisions or perform actions, they usually feel as if they are choosing freely. The decisions people make are the direct results of their desires; past experiences; personality; psychological traits; and needs and wants. Determinism is the view that if an event has happened, given the previous state of the universe and the laws of nature, then it is impossible that it could not have occurred (304). Libertarianism is the belief that the universe is not determined and that humans possess free will. Kane, the supporter of libertarianism, claimed
Overall, this proposition has many good outcomes, varying from school funding being increased, to school debts lowering, to also keeping health care free for those low income families who are not able to afford a visit to the doctors office. Proposition 55 will continue to extend the positive aspects proposition 30 has been able to make and hopefully it even does greater things. Proposition 55 should be passed due to the fact that the funding heading to schools will be able to be used to give money to schools to hire more teachers while at the same time maintaining the same pay and benefits to its current teachers. This will support the education of the future generation and make sure they have the same advantages that the previous generations have been able to
Helper believes that the reason the Souths economy was bad, was because slavery had enslaved the South. He talks about how the South is very dependent and gets almost everything from the North. “We want Bibles, brooms, buckets, and books, and we go to the North; … we want toys, primers, school books, fashionable apparel, machinery, medicines, tombstones, and a thousand other things, and we go to the North for them all.” (For the Record, 417) Then, Helper gets to the point and explains that the reason for their poverty and bad economy, was because of slavery. The people of the South depended on slave labor, which is why they were not doing so well economy wise. If it wasn’t for slavery in the South, they would be “patronizing their own mechanics, manufacturers, and laborers” (For the Record, 418) instead of sending everything to the North. Another one of Helper’s arguments is that, the non-slaveholders believe anything the slaveholders tell them. That is why Helper believes the “South, woefully inert and inventionless, has lagged behind the North, and is now weltering in the cesspool of ignorance and degradation.” (For the Record, 419)
After reading this issue, and making some research in the subject, I believe that this is not an opinion article. The writer, Jay Pennell, did not state his position about the race and the NASCAR restart rules. In fact, he just gave an overview of what happened at Talladega Superspeedway. So, he cited the drivers’ opinions and comments about the race, and described what happened. It is, indeed, a controversial issue but Pennel did not give his opinion. My general feeling about this issue is that this problem seems to be something that has occurred before. It was not the first time that a botched restart affected the outcome of the race. As a consequence, on October 20th, the NASCAR made changes on the rules to reduce to one attempt instead of the customary three tries at a green-white-checkered finish.
In Kyle Wein’s article, he explains why he doesn’t believe people with poor grammar shouldn’t be hired. I agree with Wein’s statement because everyone was taught basic grammar, it represents you when text is the only form of communication, and it also gives a first impression when handing in the
Throughout our lives, we will come across other individuals whose opinions differ from ours. Whether we decide to shadow their beliefs or stay strong to our own, it is how we handle the situation, as well as what we take from it, that shapes our character. I am now aware that, for the most part, it is best to have your own voice and remain firm to what you believe in instead of changing your views in order to please others just to fit in.
Through understanding the errors, I made in Writing Assignment #3 (WA #3) I was able to edit and better understand what corrections was needed for Writing Assignment #4 (WA #4) to become a well thought out paper. For WA #3 I received a B+ because of the lack of further development in my argument, which made the voice in the argument, the context behind sources and the thesis weaker.
he title for this editorial is somewhat misleading about Gorsuch, a nomination for the Supreme Court. It cast a negative image of him, just from the title concerning support for police and suspects, until you read it. Some of the major statements that are supposed of Mr. Hananel argument of Gorsuch begins with the statement, that he wasn’t convinced that a teenager who made burping sounds in a classroom should be arrested, handcuffed and taken to juvenile detention in a police car. A second statement made was about the last 10 years he was on the federal appeals court, he points out that Gorsuch has raised concerns about intrusive government searches and seizures. In a 2013 speech, Gorsuch said “what happens to individual freedom and equality
A principle discourse between the two arguments occurs here, should a person with such an upbringing be placed in a dilemma like described by Sartwell. According to Dalrymple, such people view obedience as extinguishments of their “... existence as an autonomous being”, which sharply contrasts with Sartwell’s emphasis on the influence of the herd (Dalrymple 5). He states that humans “ … seek to associate themselves with a consensus of their acquaintances“, a claim which Dalrymple later discards in his explanation of disobedience but inadvertently accents with an anecdote early in his article (Sartwell 2). In said anecdote, Dalrymple recounts a conversation he had on a plane with a woman who expressed her seemingly firm anti-authority sentiments
