Essay1.525 Words / ~ pages Svendborg Gymnasium, Svendborg Delopgave B: Amerikansk udenrigspolit­ik I bilag B1 er en af de mest centrale pointer at have med, at Donald Trump til en vis grad lægger op til opgør med de seneste 70 års amerikansk udenrigspolit­ik. Dette betyder at han i højere grad er mere tilbøjelig til at trække amerikanske styrker hjem fra deres baser rundt om i verden, hvilket i den grad strider imod de 70 års seneste amerikansk udenrigspolit­ik som var baseret på tætte alliancer i de regioner, hvor USA havde interesse af større grad. ‘’Helt centralt i hans udenrigspolit­iske visioner (.) er hans tilsyneladend­e villighed til at trække USA ud af eksisterende alliancesyste­mer’’ (Bilag B1).Dette tyder på et skift blandt de fire teoretiske traditioner i international politik, hvor der sket et skifte fra Liberalismen til Realismen.

Essay1.667 Words / ~ pages Universidad Catolica Boliviana La Paz Name: Analysis of International Relationships The search of freedom is a desire always present in mankind. There are few people that would say that these things are not good and desirable to live better and develop a better world. At the same time, the need of belonging somewhere and grouping with others that are somehow alike to one self is also another human condition. These two necessities of people get in conflict at some point, because freedom also means the capability to go where we want and when we want without the need to ask somebody for permission. Still, we don’t want others to come to our already formed group and just stay there because they want, but have the power to surround us from the ones we want and close the group. So we need to bargain some level of understanding­, a middle point that can lead us to have both of our wishes…[show more]

In May 2010, former President Horst Köhler answered in an interview that it might be necessary to defend German economic interests with military force (1). With this sentence he had to face a lot of contradiction from various parts of German society which finally led to his surprising resignation on May, 31st 2010.

Essay1.389 Words / ~3 pages Technische Universität Darmstadt - TU Unconditional Basic Income With a warm home and enough to eat a human being is not yet very much, but he must have that warm home and enough to eat if his better nature is to be activated. The pertinent comment/conce­pt for our debate today was not written by a current advocate for an unconditional basic income – it was Friedrich Schiller, a renowned German philosopher and poet in the 18th century. Schiller wrote those lines in one of several letters in which he was thanking Friedrich Christian von Augustenburg for his hospitality – offering Schiller shelter and financial independence in the years from 1791 to 1793 (giving Schiller the opportunity to study the works of Kant.) From a normative perspective – is the UBI a desirable objective within a welfare-state in order to assure Schiller’s fundamental preconditions­, triggering…[show more]

Essay2.568 Words / ~10 pages University of Washington - UW Seattle Professor Eklund - English 110 The “War” on Drugs In 1973 Americas president, Richard Nixon, declared a “total war against public enemy number one in the United States; the problem of dangerous drugs.” Since then, the use of drugs in America has increased exponentially­, along with the potency of the drugs. Today we currently incarcerate over 1.5 million people for drug arrests, and currently spend over 15 billion dollars combating this “war.” It’s obvious that our current policy isn’t effective, as the amount of narcotics in the country increases yearly. Is it really worth the 15 billion dollars spent per year? And since our current policy is ineffective, why is the federal government so reluctant to make any changes to it. To truly understand this ignorance we must first examine the motives behind it. It’s imperative that we…[show more]
Essay597 Words / ~ pages University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Damien Cave: American Patriotism Damien Cave’s article entitled “The Spam Spoils of War” is something that any American can relate to. The article definitely evoked memories for myself as I remembered watching the scenes of 9/11 on the morning news. He uses this example to illustrate his point about “the intimate relationship between crises and capitalism” (122). Are many Americans “patriotic” in the true sense of the word? Or are many disillusioned with the idea? If so, why? The idea of patriotism is something that all Americans can relate to and is therefore something we can all critically analyze. To understand this complex relationship we must look at America’s loss of “community” values and the overvaluing of personal identity in our society. Within weeks following the tragedy of September 11, 2001, entrepreneurs everywhere…[show more]
Essay384 Words / ~1 page keine Angabe Trade Unions Trade unions were developed in the 19th century by workers who joined together to try to improve their working conditions and to demand higher wages.

Inkább a két utóbbi releváns esetünkben. A két etnikum között akkor kezdődtek meg a harcok, amikor a Hegyi- karabah autonóm terület parlamentje megszavazta (1988, február 20) az Örményországh­oz való csatlakozást. Az eseményre kihatással volt az éppen felbomló Szovjetunió helyzete is. Ahogy a felbomlása közeledett, fokozatosan egy növekvő tendenciájú erőszakos konfliktussá nőtte ki magát, az ami békésen indult. Nem csak ez az egy ok vezethető vissza a konfliktus gyökeréhez. Egy másik fontos tényező, hogy a terület az évszázadok, sőt évezredek alatt többször tartozott más fennhatóság alá, esetleg volt vazallus.…[show more]

Språk er ein viktig del av demokratiet vårt, men kvifor er det slik? Og gir fleire språk i vårt samfunn eit betre demokrati? Språk er noko som alle har, og dei trenger ikkje vere like. Nesten alle land har forskjellige språk, eller kvartfall noko med språket dykkar som gjør det til dykkar språk. Språket i Norge er noko som er unikt for oss, anten om ein skriv nynorsk eller bokmål, eller uansett kva for ein dialekt ein snakkar. For å ha eit demokrati må ein også ha eit felles hovudspråk, slik at alle kan forstå kvarandre. Utan eit felles hovudspråk vil ikkje alle innanfor eit land, om det er eit demokrati eller ikkje, klare å kommunisere med kvarandre. Dette vil gjøre det vanskelig å holde eit demokrati gåande, fordi folk vil misforstå kvarandre.…[show more]
