Freedom And Liberty (a Book Review Of George Orwells 1984)
Freedom and Liberty (a book review of George Orwell's 1984) Unknown Living in a society with limited freedom of expression is not, in any case, enjoyable. A Totalitarian society is a good example of such a society, because although it provides control for the people, it can deny them a great deal of freedom to express themselves. The fictional society in George Orwell's 1984 also stands as a metaphor for a Totalitarian society. Communication, personal beliefs, and individual loyalty to the gover

Effects of Gangsta Rap
Obviously rap music is too violent. It serves as a musical accompaniment to the entire underclass culture of violence, says the author of See No Evil, David Klinghoffer, in an article in the National Review. This extremely narrow minded philosophy has neglected to discover what rap music really is and what it means to its millions of buyers, who are mostly of upper-class status. Rap is not only music, it is also a black cultural expression that prioritizes black voices from urban America, an

Black holes can be seen via the death throes of the matter being sucked in. Although it becomes invisible past a certain point, an accretion disk, which is visible, develops as the matter swirls toward the black hole. The collapsed star is so dense that nothing can escape its gravitational pull, not even light. A black hole is a conc

All lyrics on the record were created by him, and he wrote or co-wrote all five songs on the album.
