The Advantages Of Stupidity
The Advantages of Stupidity Most people say being stupid will lead no where. They claim that it is the worst possible condition in which to spend one's life, and if possible, it should be completely avoided. They would even suggest if the symptoms of stupidity are caught in the early stages, it could easily be treated by a surgeon. The most effective method used to do this is the chainsaw technique, later described in volume two. Yet, perhaps if people took a closer look at some of the advantage
The Vietnam War
The Vietnam War
The Vietnam War The United States made the right decision in joining the war efforts of the South Vietnamese. The only mistake was that the U.S. should have done everything in its power to win the war as quickly as possible. The U.S. was obligated by the Truman Doctrine to contain communism.

The Crucible - Witch Trials
The Crucible - Witch Trials In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, the madness of the Salem witch trials is explored in great detail. There are many theories as to why the witch trials came about, the most popular of which is the girls' suppressed childhoods. However, there were other factors as well, such as Abigail Williams' affair with John Proctor, the secret grudges that neighbors held against each other, and the physical and economic differences between the citizens of Salem Village.

The Rize of the Swatzika
The Rize of the Swatzika When first seeing this somewhat controversial image, dozens upon dozens of thoughts may flood the mind but are we really looking at? The Swastika as we may know it in Western society has in fact been pulled very far from its original context. Swastika in its native tongue, Sanskrit, is pronounced ?swastika? and which translates best to ?wellbeing, good fortune and luck.? This symbol specifically in the clockwise design is considered auspicious. So now one may ask, what i

This social movement is undoubtedly rooted in religion,

Patricide
Patricide
Patricide In the time of the Romans, the punishment for patricide was to be sewn up in a sack that had a monkey, snake, rooster, and dog inside, and then to be thrown in a river. Each of the animals in the bag had some specific meaning to them, and being sewn up in a sack and tossed into the river also had a specific function to the murderer. Thus this punishment became the proper way to punish the guilty. In the Roman era, patricide had become a major problem, so it was decided that for whomeve

Education I am one of these people they generally refer to as a mature student. It is too bad that this term doesn't mean what suggests, that I study in a more mature way than people who have not been out of school as long as I have. It simply means that I have not been in a formal classroom for quite a while -- in my case for more than twenty years. There are advantages and disadvantages to having this gap in one's education. One advantage is that it does give me some perspective to see that
