In the following argumentation I will enumerate pro and contra arguments about the topic if the American Dream has come true for the Afro-American population.

Discussion1.498 Words / ~ pages HPC, zetten Macbeth William Shakespeare The supernatural plays an important role in Macbeth. To what extent does it motivate Macbeth’s actions? Without the so called ‘supernatural­’ Macbeth wouldn’t have killed anybody to gain power. Before Macbeth heard the prophecies of the witches he was a loyal warrior of king Duncan and he had absolutely no reason to kill the king. It was only when he heard about the prophecies he became a murderer. So I think the supernatural is a great motivation for Macbeth’s actions. Or at least it was the cause in the beginning of all the deadly actions of Macbeth. Macbeth lived in a time were people strongly believed in supernatural powers, personally I think that’s because people back then needed answers for the things they couldn’t explain. The second supernatural thing that happened was the appearance of the dagger.…[show more]

Discussion2.479 Words / ~7 pages University of California Riverside We Sell Our Life to Money, and We Do It in College The Effects of College on Students Our whole society seems to revolve around the concept that success means having more money – nothing else. Nowadays, people are going to college just because of the statistical promise that by doing so, they will be happier, because they will be earning more money than if they do not go to college. We are ruled by this false concept that money equals success, and that one cannot really be considered successful without it. The reason we are being ruled by this concept is because we have made it our purpose to work in order to get more money. The definition of success according to the Google search engine is “the accomplishmen­t of an aim or purpose”.

Discussion590 Words / ~ pages Bucuresti Colegiul German Goethe Maria , 11. C Could a society without money work? Ever since the blastoff of the civilized world, people tried to get the best of what everyone else had to offer. A first step to gain what they wanted was to offer something in exchange, to trade. Of course that over time, problems arose, as it was hard to find someone who would like to take the product, you were able to provide and sell you exactly what you were in need of. At this point, money was invented, not in the form we have knowledge of nowadays, but the concept of an exchange coin so that people could easily sell and buy goods. The success money had at that time is proven by the fact that today we still use it, although it comes in different designs and appearances (cards, checks, cash, bit coins). First of all, the money rules the society we live in. It is practically impossible to change how…[show more]

Discussion619 Words / ~ pages Troy University ***** 2 ***** ***** ***** ***** English 1101 22 March 2013 Why Teenagers Drink Alcohol Teens consume alcohol for a number of reasons; there is not just one aspect to it. Teenagers are at an age when they want to experiment with everything. The curiosity to try alcohol, however, can lead to alcohol addiction and other negative outcomes. In most cases teens start drinking because they feel they go through rough times; for example, they may have issues with their parents, or they may experience stress at school. In addition to it, alcohol consumption may be provoked by the teens’ desire to be different, or it can make them feel older. Regardless of the reason why young people begin drinking, it is clear that they are unable to cope with multiple issues in their lives on their own and, therefore, mistakenly view alcohol as an escape from reality.…[show more]

Discussion695 Words / ~1 page Gymnasium am Kaiserdom Speyer Should the voting age be lowered to 16? In lots of countries young people want to get more involved in politics. But they only have the right to vote when they are of age. This leads to the question if the voting age should be lowered to 16 or not? That is an inquiry on which the state and also the citizens ponder about. Some are for and some are against this right. On one hand the opponents of this statement say that people under age are not mature enough. A large majority of them still lives at home and goes to school.

The majority of the American citizens looks at the right on weapon possession as a fundamental right. Many of them have grown up in families in which weapon possession was everyday particularly in the rural areas and in the south of the USA.

Discussion359 Words / ~ pages Gymnasium Adolfinum Moers Should students rate their schools on the internet? Schools take a big role in our society. They are the place where students are given knowledge to help them become successful and where they realize their own capabilities for the future.

One common reason is because they fear that good students will avoid public schools with problems and choose private schools.…[show more]
Discussion576 Words / ~ pages Justus-Knecht-Gymnasium Bruchsal Community Service good or bad idea? Last week in school we talk about Community Service and thought about if it’s a good idea to introduce the system of the Fountain Vally School at our school. In the following text i’m going to list the disadvantages and advantages of this system. I start with the argument, which shows that isn’t a good idea to have Community Service at the school. The first thing is that Community Service is volunteering work so it should give you the opportunity to decide on your own if you want to do it or not. In this case the students have to do it and can’t decide by themselves. Another reason is that if you have to do Community Service you normally do besides the school. That means you don’t have that much time left for other stuff like studying or meeting friends or so on. I didn’t find that much which is against the system…[show more]

Discussion909 Words / ~ pages Werner-Heisenberg-Gymnasium Weinheim Pros and Cons about Online – and High street shopping Nowadays, there is a trend towards online shopping – especially for young people. Either order shopping comfortably from home and, if things go bad, wait days for your parcel or pay extra for halfway fast express shipping? The question is whether online shopping or high street shopping is appropriate for everyone? My first argument in this text is against offline shopping. It addresses the prices in retail shops which are usually higher than online. One example for this are often clothing stores. One reason for this could be the specially trained staff, who also receives a higher salary than online sellers. Referring back to the argument mentioned above, there is the well-trained staff. Sometimes there is also specially trained personnel that is only qualified for a certain…[show more]
Discussion643 Words / ~ pages Gymnasium Berlin Comment- ,,Children owe their parents everything In the book ‘‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”, published in 2012, the author, Amy Chua, wrote “ Chinese children must spend their lives by obeying them and making them proud’’. That’s where the statement “Kids owe their parent everything” comes from. In other words, children need to be grateful, successful; obey their parents, show them your respect; assist and care them when they get older, in this case I mean when they are less productive and children can afford for themselves. It has been stereotypical­ly the mind-set of Chinese parents. I am from Vietnam. It is a neighboring country of China and the people there have properly similar mind-set, including my parents. So I want now to give my own opinion about the statement. Firstly, children and parents are independent individuals.…[show more]
