Many people challenge the rules for several different reasons. It’s always appropriate to challenge the rules when the rules are unfair, or against what you think is right. You can challenge the rules to make them fair and equal for everyone. Just how the two excerpts, Animal Farm by George Orwell, and Texas vs. Johnson, by the U.S. Supreme Court. These two excerpts explore the issue of when it is appropriate to challenge the rules. Challenging the rules can lead to positive or negative outcomes. You can change the rules for a good reason, or a bad one, but it’s always better to challenge the rules in order to make them more equal.
Over fifty-six billion animals are slaughtered yearly for consumption, but because we are conditioned from a young age to view animals as resources, we neglect that they are passionate and intelligent living beings. Cows want to enjoy their lives, pigs want to enjoy their lives, and many other farm animals want to enjoy their lives but instead are abused and confined in small cages. Ironically, though, when someone does likewise to a cat or dog, they’re prosecuted. The sole solution to these inhumane acts is Veganism. Veganism is the ideal diet because plant-based foods are plentiful, and it recognizes the unethical treatment of animals.
Many people buy the pets they want, but there are rarely any human beings that actually adopt. Let me ask you a simple question. Do you usually buy your pets from a breeder, or do you actually go out and search for the one to adopt? Many of you will say buy from a breeder, but that’s okay. Let me just list my facts and you think them over. Maybe I can get your opinion to change.
Moreover, the average age for chickens can be five to ten years, and they will need five to six months to be fully grown. But in the factory farms, they will use antibiotics to make chickens grow faster than usual. For the “meat” chicken, they only need six weeks to reach “market weight” and slaughtered to produce meat. According to researchers at the University of Arkansas’s Division of Agriculture, “If you grew as fast as a chicken, you’d weigh 349 pounds at age 2” (Gristle, 35). Also, the big animals, such as cows and pigs in the factory farms are living in a cruel situation too. Cows and pigs are the kinds of animals who live outdoor. If they live in an enclosed environment, they will get sick and depressed, and then they will bite one another and kill their young in despair. So the factory farms have problem to raise big animal at the beginning. However, the factory farms hire some scientists to solve this problem. Eventually, the scientists suggested that “dumped antibiotics into the grain they fed the stock; created two-foot-by-seven-foot gestation crates so sows couldn’t bite one another’s tails or crush their young by lying down” (In the Belly of The
Just think about a human race free of genetic disease where everyone is intelligent and where society and technology advance at staggering rates. This is the future that is envisioned by those who advocate eugenics. Eugenics is the study of methods to improve the human race by selection of parents based on their inherited characteristics (Hartl). The idea was first discussed by Sir Francis Galton in the 1880’s, but was widely unaccepted by people at first due to fear that it would take away their basic human rights and be misused (Hartl). In the early 20th century, eugenics was a very popular and widespread idea in the United States and there were laws created to encourage certain people to have children, while discouraging others from procreating (Morris 66). The main reason eugenics has fell into such disfavor is because the Nazis cited it as the reason for the Holocaust (Morris 66). The use of eugenics by the Nazis can be compared to the use Islam by ISIS, or the use of Christianity by the Westboro Baptist Church. It is a concept that can be misused based on interpretation and extremism. Eugenics itself is just an idea to improve the human race by selective breeding, not by killing millions. Forms of eugenics should be implemented in society because they eliminate genetic diseases and problems, spread favorable traits and attributes, create a more intelligent and less flawed society, and help advance the human race as a whole.
The whole point of eugenics is so that the human race can evolve more sufficiently and also more beneficial to the later generations. Using it we can improve our babies, their babies and so on to create smarter and stronger human beings. But then again some people see it that we are playing god or destroying variety.
If there is one country that has made history in the world for following oppressive government policies at some point in time, then it has to be Russia. Numerous flaws have been cited about the communist policies that prevailed in Russia in the past. Under the rule of Stalin, the Russian people are known to have witnessed intense dictatorship. For example, it is reported that Stalin was notorious for sacking officers suspected of opposing his rule (Kennan, 2015). Similarly, Stalin employed divisive politics in which he reportedly set friend against friend until the society was marred by intense panic and terror. If the works of literature are anything to go by, then it is evident that oppressive governance was the standard style of government
The biggest problem with tube feeding birds is improper tube feeding which can result in aspiration and possibly death. If the tube is passed too forcefully, it can pose the problem of lacerating the oropharynx. If that happens and the feeding is continued, food can actually be injected through that laceration and into the surrounding tissue. This mistake can potentially causing life-threatening cellulitis around the birds throat. Never perform tube feedings on a bird that is regurgitating, dehydrated, or any patient that is not alert, non-responsive, or unable to keep their heads elevated on their own.
For example, the Humane Society raises money and asks for petition signatures to help save either dogs being killed in meat farms or give homes to animals they save from the slaughter. The Agricultural business is one of the biggest causes of climate change. When animals like cows and pigs go poo, Methane gas is released from their manure and into the atmosphere. This contributes to global warming and with over 75 billion animals produced each year that’s a big problem. As well, the amount of land used for providing space to farm these animals is the size of Africa, the second largest continent. Because by 2050 our population will reach around 9 billion people, logically, more land will need to be used and we won’t have enough space to hold the animals used to provide food for the growing population. Adopting a vegan diet clearly helps the environment for the better, but also helps a person’s physical health.
According to vegansociety.com, “ Veganism represents a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, other animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, other animals and the environment.“ People that follow this way of living are called vegans. The vegan diet is more a lifestyle choice and a philosophy than just a diet. The vegan life is the best way to live because it’s healthier, helps the environment, and is kinder to animals.
Some would not be able to live without eating any animal products in their diets, such as, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy products, and honey. For vegans, however, this is a normal way of life. Vegans are frequently misunderstood as either people who have eating disorders, or an unnatural passion for animal rights. It is time for people to realize that veganism, a challenging yet rewarding lifestyle, goes way beyond being skinny or caring for animals. In reality, veganism can be extremely advantageous to anyone who adapts it as a way of life and has many different benefits that come along with it.
Veganism is too expensive. More than half of the U.S. population would validate this argument. This can be stated as a common misconception; but the truth of the fact will stun a countless number of individuals. For example, “a basket of produce including nine different vegetables, from cabbage to zucchini, cost an average of $12.85” (Chervency 1.) Purchasing prices for these goods are an exceeding amount for the quantity given. The average household income cannot purchase these items to sustain the family with the income they have due. Purchasing a dollar menu item from a local fast food location is more economic and also provides longer satisfaction from the food ingested. Also, availability of fresh produce can be limited in specific parts of the U.S.; this is known as a food desert. This occurs because of to lack of grocery stores, supermarkets, and farmers’ markets. As a result, purchasing of these goods are not even an option for millions Americans. In contrary, “the average price of ground beef is hitting a record high of $4.238 a pound in 2015. Up 19.2 percent from last year's price of $3.555 a pound, and up from $2.277 a pound in 2010, an 86.1 percent increase” (Butler 1.) In actuality, produce isn’t on the rise; it is livestock, which is transcending at a top notch price every year. Those who are vegan, are in fact saving money by buying produce. For the cost of a
A lot of people have not heard of Eugenics because of the dark past in the history of not only the United States but also across Europe. What does it mean to have a perfect world? Back in the 1920s they had an idea to create a world that only included a certain idea of whom the best type of people were. This may sound like an interesting idea but the price of our own human decency was taken in which human life did not mean the same for everyone. Most people are unaware of what Eugenics is because it is not a proud point in the United States, so it does not get taught or talked about very often.
Every dog is a responsibility, and it takes a kind hearted person to go through the process of adoption. Through shelters it’s about an hour process to adopt. They ask for your current pets (if there is any) vet, the phone number of the vet, every one who lives in the house phone number, so they can call and see if they are okay with having a new furry friend in the house. They give scenarios that could possibly happen with a new puppy in the house for example, what do you do if the puppy is digging in the yard? Or what do you do if the mailman comes to the door and the dog starts barking? The process is long but it is worth it. The shelters even off puppy training classes that’ll teach them household manners, which includes potty training, leash training so that they will be able to go on walks without having to wear a harness. You get so much out of adoption that you don’t get from pet stores that will not offer. With my new adoption I was offered classes for him. Puppy classes, intermediate, therapy dogs, than k9 classes.
Mother pigs spend most of their miserable lives in tiny gestation and farrowing crates so small that they can’t even turn around and forced to get pregnant over and over again, until their bodies can’t handle it anymore.. Males are either killed immediately, or castrated at a young age then kept only for their meat. Piglets, in general, are torn away from their mothers after only a few weeks, tails are chopped off, and the ends of their teeth are snipped off, then the spend days to weeks to months in cramped, crowded pens on slabs of filthy concrete until it gets decided what will happen to them.
