Why does she act so strangely and so differently than all the other characters? She acts this way because of a relationship she has with the force of Nature, which Hawthorne personifies as sympathetic towards sins against the puritan way of life. Because of this trait Hester's sin causes Nature to accept Pear

Abortion [email protected] As of right now, abortion is legal in all nine months of the pregnancy for any reason. This controversial issue is a question of how important the value of life is. The turning point came in 1973 when the Supreme Court's decision in Roe vs. Wade saying, that women have the right to murder an innocent child only up to 24 weeks .

Capital Punishment
Capital Punishment
Execution of criminals and political opponents has been used by nearly all societies?both to punish crime and to suppress political dissent. In most places that practice capital punishment it is reserved for murder, espionage, treason, or as part of military justice.

Death Penalty Issues
Death Penalty Issues
Introduction The social Policy I am presenting in this research paper is the death penalty (capital punishment). The perspective I chose to use in order to analyze this social policy is the structural functionalism point of view. The structural functionalism theory views society as a system of parts that are interrelated, that work together for the ?efficiency and effectiveness of society?. One of the main assumptions of this point of view is that societies try to maintain equilibrium, with all

Kant pursues a purely retributive view of capital punishment against utilitarians? because Kant believes that the unequivocal defense of the lex talionis-the law (or principal) of retaliation, often expressed as ?an eye for an eye?, Kants view on punishment is to be inflicted in a measure that will equalize the offense and when this offense is murder, only capital punishment is sufficient to equalize.

On Election Day, voters in Massachusetts took what they think will be a step forward for their state: They decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. Before you brush that off with, Well, that's Massachusetts for you, consider that this is a state with not only a liberal bent but a strong Puritan streak.

Personal freedom vs protection
Should personal freedom be forgone for the protection of the society as a whole, is a question that has been argued from the time of Aristotle and Plato. (Velasquez et al, 1992) While there are several valid arguments that support both of the conditions mentioned above, there is obviously severe concern over how much of each is acceptable. ?How much? personal freedom should be given up to preserve ?how much? common good? Furthermore, there is even disagreement over what is common good. All membe

Decriminalization of Marijuana There are many arguments and points of view on whether marijuana should be legalized or remain illegal. The first question we have to ask ourselves is ?Do individuals deserve the right to decide whether or not they should use marijuana?? Is it right for the government to dictate what individuals do in the privacy of their own homes as long as it does not pose a threat to them or harm others? Marijuana, when used in moderation, is not anymore harmful than alcohol or
