Antitrust
Antitrust
Antitrust I feel American Airlines is in violation of all three of the major pieces of antitrust legislation in one way or another. The three acts are the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act. Section I of the Sherman Act prohibits: ďEvery contract, combination in the form of trust or otherwise, or conspiracy, in restraint of trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, is hereby declared to be illegal and is a felony punishable by fine or im
The Republic
The Republic
The Republic The cover quotation from The Republic by Plato gives insight into the action of man and the forces that influence these actions, with respect to equality and justice. In essence, Plato is trying to convey the necessity of government and other influence to keep even the most pious and righteous person in check. When we examine the governmental aspect of this quotation and assume that Plato values equality, we see that he shuns lack of government. In concordance with Plato, I feel tha

Communist Manifesto
Communist Manifesto Chapter 1 Summary: Bourgeois and Proletarians The Communist Manifesto begins with Marx\'s famous generalization that the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles (79).

Evolutionary Psychology-Fact or Chauvinism
Evolutionary Psychology-Fact or Chauvinism Every manís dream, at one time or another, has been to be the all powerful sex god, with harems of submissive women. So why not invent a psychology to express that? Actually, I feel that evolutionary psychology is based on some kernels of truth; however, it fits in better when approached from the overall biological view of natural evolution combined with wisdom from the sociological perspective. From the biological point of view, one can hardly believe
Laissez-Faire
Laissez-Faire
Laissez-Faire The American Civil War fades away. It now appears that a new social unrest has taken root in America. But the debate was to be fought in the economic world. The question was, how should the government interact with business? The issue splits into two main views, that of Laissez-faire, and that of General Welfare. Laissez-faire is a rather straight-forward philosophy. It can be best described by saying that the government should have absolutely no interaction within the business wor
