Homework523 Words / ~1 page Athenée Luxemburg ‛The purpose of life is to be happy’ ‛The purpose of life is to be happy’ is a motto that many people need to tell themselves in order to have a goal in life. It’s a device that is put into our minds since we’re little. You can see this for example in Disney movies or fairytales, in which the purpose of the story is a happy end. So we grow up by believing that we’ll end up happy too, if we pursue this idea. But what exactly is happiness? Some of us think of it as material fulfilment or professional success and others as the achievement to start a family or making other people happy.

Homework616 Words / ~ pages hak gänserndorf Energy - Nuclear Energy Can we live without energy? Naturally no! People and animals need energy to survive. Food is the source of energy. Carbohydrates “are burned” in the body. Energy, CO2 and water are produced. Agriculture production needs also energy (for seeding, production and transport). Modern life is always in small or bigger cities. If we haven´t any energy, we wouldn´t have our usual modern life style. Demand on energy is increasing If the world population is increased, more energy is needed. Because more people need more food. In the past the most of production was done by manual work. Nowadays manual work has been replaced by machines. For example, in every household there is a washing machine, a dish washer, a fridge, a micro wave, a car and television. Altogether they need a lot of energy/electr­icity­.…[show more]

People are looting from stores, the police are trying to calm people down, innocent people are getting arrested, etc. The big question is, “who is to blame?” I come to a conclusion that it was the greed of people that lead to these riots. Liberalizatio­n of the markets and the supportive media of this development is also a reason why this is happening. So how can we stop it? When we were little, we made many mistakes. We always did the exact opposite of what they told us. For example, “ Do not touch the stove, it is very hot! ” The moment the mother looked away the child would touch the oven and get burned.

The strongest taboo today is against having clear ideas of right and wrong. Or even worse, against saying clearly to other people what is right and wrong, and stopping those who cross the line. The fear of being moralistic has become a fear of morals themselves, and as a result many people feel that they have lost their way. The way forward will be difficult to find unless we can agree on basic values and where to set limits. This loss of direction becomes particularly clear when defenceless children or youths do not receive the protection they need from adults, like their parents and teachers and their classmates at school.
