Renaissance Humanism is defined as Ã¢â¬Å"a literary and linguistic movement-an attempt to revive classical Latin (and later Greek), as well as the values and sensibilities that came with the languageÃ¢â¬ (Hunt et al, 415). I think that Machiavelli was a humanist of his era because in his writing The Prince, he relied on history to provide a handbook to future rulers and princes. Machiavelli drew much of this guidebook from his past dealings with politicians and their self-ambitious monarchies. In my opinion he wrote this guide to as a way to show future princes that the ways of the past should be adhered to in order for Italy to regain its prior glory. In The Prince Machiavelli uses many examples from history to show that we need to embrace the past in order to gain a prosperous future. Machiavelli's, The Prince serves as a handbook to future rulers with their roles and responsibilities. Machiavelli begins his handbook with his view of princely virtues. He argues that in order for a person to be a good leader and stay in rule he must not just be a good person but that Ã¢â¬Å"he must learn how to not be goodÃ¢â¬ (Lawall et al, 1951) in order to protect himself from anyone trying to overtake his rule. He must always be prepared and not make himself the Ã¢â¬Å"good guyÃ¢â¬ all the time. Machiavelli shows that being a good person all of the time will only allow for the bad people to overpower the good people, Ã¢â¬Å"because anyone who determines to act in all circumstances the part of a good man must come to ruin among so many who are not goodÃ¢â¬ (Lawall et al, 1951). Machiavelli goes on to further his humanistic views on how a prince should be viewed by his people. He discusses the choices a person of power has in being Ã¢â¬Å"liberalÃ¢â¬ (1952) and generous or stingy. He goes on to say that being too liberal will bring a man of power to ruin and that being frugal is important. He explains that as long as a ruler Ã¢â¬Å"abstains from the property of his citizens and subjectsÃ¢â¬ he will gain the respect of his people. He goes on to discuss that a ruler will be more respected if he is living and spending other peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s money. He discusses the examples set by Cyrus, Caesar, and Alexander in which they lived off Ã¢â¬Å"plunder, loot and ransomÃ¢â¬ (1953). These three rulers were spending the Ã¢â¬Å"money of othersÃ¢â¬ (1953) and therefore were not hurting themselves by having to spend what was already theirs. Machiavelli goes on to explain that Ã¢â¬Å"nothing eats itself up as fast as does liberalityÃ¢â¬ (1953) because when practiced it can lead to poverty and will make a ruler have to raise taxes which will in turn bring hatred on by his people (1953). Machiavelli also discusses the importance of being feared and loved as well as, being thought of as cruel but compassionate all at the same time. He uses Dido and Borgia as examples. Borgia is used as the example for cruelty. He says that because Borgia was so cruel his cruelness brought prosperity and unity to Romagna and therefore was prosperous because of the fear that he instilled in his people. But because his Senate was too Ã¢â¬Å"compassionateÃ¢â¬ he lost his clout (1954). Machiavelli also explains that a new prince is going to face several challenges and because of this will be faced to make very hard decisions that may or may not hurt his reputation among his people. Here he uses VirgilÃ¢â¬â¢s Dido as an example, Ã¢â¬Å"Hard circumstances and the newness of my realm force me to do such things, and to keep watch over all my landsÃ¢â¬ (1954). From these examples, Machiavelli is telling his reader that as a prince they must be flexible and show cruelty or compassion when needed in any situation. Machiavelli goes on to state that a prince should Ã¢â¬Å"be slow in believing and acting, and should make no one afraid of himÃ¢â¬ Ã¢â¬ ¦so that Ã¢â¬Å"too much confidence does not make him incautious, and too much suspicion does not make him unbearableÃ¢â¬ (1954). This is the way to keep support from his people and will not turn their backs on him when the going gets tough. Renaissance Humanism is defined as Ã¢â¬Å"a literary and linguistic movement-an attempt to revive classical Latin (and later Greek), as well as the values and sensibilities that came with the languageÃ¢â¬ (Hunt et al, 415). MachiavelliÃ¢â¬â¢s The Prince was essentially a handbook for how a Prince should portray himself but could also be seen as a day to day handbook by the everyday people of his time for they were all faced with the same moral decisions on a daily basis. Machiavelli used The Prince as a gateway to create a moral and philosophical guide for all people in general and uses examples from history to show that the past needs to be embraced in order to gain a prosperous future.

Walt WhitmanÃ¢â¬â¢s 1859 poem Ã¢â¬Å"Out of the Cradle Rocking EndlesslyÃ¢â¬ depicts the mockingbird as a symbol of innocence that chants or sings of fond memories from the past. By contrast, Harper LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s famous novel To Kill a Mockingbird, published in 1960, written almost a century after WhitmanÃ¢â¬â¢s poem, portrays the mockingbird as innocent but as a fragile creature with horrific memories Ã¢â¬â memories of discrimination, isolation, and violence. Harper Lee wrote her novel, which is rooted in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, in the Deep South, during a time of segregation and discrimination, social issues which can be seen not only in the novel but were witnessed by Harper Lee in her own life. While Lee does insert bits and pieces of her own lifeÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦She was part of a southern family related to the confederate general Robert E. Lee. Her father was a lawyer and newspaper editor. Harper Lee attended Huntington College and then the University of Alabama as well as attended Oxford University as an exchange student for one year (McGovern 2). Lee entered law school briefly but soon left for New York to pursue a writing career. Harper Lees father, similar to Atticus, ScoutÃ¢â¬â¢s father, had defended two black men who were accused of killing a white storekeeper; both men, father and son, were later hanged (Big Read). Although the Civil Rights movement had begun and society was making some positive changes such as Brown versus Board of Education (1954) which Ã¢â¬Å"held that the racial segregation of children in public schools violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth AmendmentÃ¢â¬ (PBS). While these events were creating positive changes in society and in the government, real-life injustices such as Amasa LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s case and the Scottsboro trials still remained. It was events like these which helped to inspire Lee to write a book that brings to light the social issues of the day such a s social class distinction and, of course, racism. However, the novel also establishes the idea that not all were guilty of heinous behavior and ideology Ã¢â¬â some, like the mockingbird, were innocent.

The right to privacy, via electronic transmissions to include the internet, is an ever present issue that does not and most likely will not ever have a solution that will not only satisfy the wants of citizens but the security needs of the nation. When issues of privacy arise we refer to a non-evolving, interpreted document called the Constitution written over two centuries ago. In order to maintain national security, citizens must surrender some privacy for the good of the nation and themselves. If privacy takes precedent over national security, then our nation becomes susceptible to attacks both electronic and physical in nature. But if a fair and proper agreement between the need for privacy and security can be reached, then it isÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The Framers wrote and established the Constitution to protect the citizens from any physical threat within the nation. In reference to the right to privacy, the word privacy is never actually written in the constitution . 1st, 3rd, 4th, 9th and 14th amendments have been interpreted to protect certain privacies. The 1st amendment is the Ã¢â¬Å"privacy of beliefsÃ¢â¬ . The 3rd amendment is the Ã¢â¬Å"privacy of the homeÃ¢â¬ . The 4th amendment is the Ã¢â¬Å"privacy of the person and possessionsÃ¢â¬ . The 9th amendment is the Ã¢â¬Å"general protection of privacyÃ¢â¬ . The 14th amendment is the liberty clause, stating that states cannot take away a citizenÃ¢â¬â¢s life, liberty, or property without due process. These amendments in their original form protect citizens from the states and the federal government, but through the evolution of society and itÃ¢â¬â¢s technologies we now also need protection against those outside of the United States. The need to interpret how the constitution is to be applied to varying situations shows that the constitution is in fact not a living document. Because it is not alive, it has not evolved or adapted to the pressing needs of the nation. In 1890, the first wiretap occurred.

Punishment Sentencing Ballots have proved that prime majorities would like the return of capital punishment. Capital punishers had to relinquish on parliament to correspond to the people, strapping their hoops on a referendum to cash in democracy. Capital sentence would become impracticable, if public view twisted as much as necessary against it. A referendum on capital sentence might be refuted for the similar cause that referendums can not lawfully be used to result restriction. Specifically, minority rights, witch a real democracy must consider into impartial amount. Need essay sample on "Punishment & Sentencing" topic? We will write a custom essay sample specifically for you Proceed Presume a referendum on capital sentence is approved by more than half of the voters. Majorities for the death punishment from time to time fade away with the obtainable option of a life verdict, devoid of payroll. John Stuart Mill has even advocated capital sentence as comparatively more lenient than life imprisonment. Democracy is about tolerating a society to control its dealings by accepted approval. Vengeance is like a fire, which never ending in its efforts keeps on spreading, engulfing the entire life of the person, destroying his own world and at the same time devastating others lives. Violence and Vengeance are two sides of the same coin, one always procreating another. Since violence distresses people and hence discourage them from socializing liberally, the resentment, from lacking the contentment of reciprocated trust and mutual harmony, possibly will frustrate even the most well-meaning from continuing to be submissive citizens, to speak out nothing of the maudlin and soured. Ballots have proved that prime majorities would like the return of capital punishment in many countries where it was abolished by law enforcement. In US the law never stopped the custom of capital punishment but certainly reduced the penalty over the last century. (Lamb, 2004, 211) However, politicians, in opposition to execution, have used this topic to advocate the significance of representative democracy for mature parliamentary discussion, over the referendum's democracy by raze impulse. Capital punishers had to relinquish on parliament to correspond to the people, strapping their hoops on a referendum to cash in democracy. (Lamb, 2004, 243) It is very true that we are not retaliating seraphs, the only defense for the ancient rule of deliberate vengeance, is prevention. Referendums of Punishments and sentences are to put fright in the harts of criminals, to make them know that if they exterminate they will be executed too. Nevertheless the innocent have also reasons to dread this brutal system in which often due lo lack of proper evidences mistakes are made. Worse still, this system is also unlawfully misused in repressing the truth, to emerge unfailingly to society, so that it will not be disgraced. (Kar, 2005, 145) Still, there is no refuting that a greater part, and possibly a large preponderance, of the public could continue with capital punishment. Thus consequently, their aspiration for a referendum on the topic does not have the democratic wholesomeness they consider it did. Depending on it they would be following another form of democracy, a dictatorship of the mainstream. But the minority did not give up anticipation of capital punishment, for the reason that of a minority's scruples, merely the most horrible oppression of the minority. All it entails is the requirement to find effective verdicts or pledges that are not so unpleasant to a considerable minority, as is forcing defendants to death. That would result in a more developed sort of democracy. All the court attempts to ascertain is whether the accused person is culpable. But that doesn't imply whether he is accountable for his entire life history that prologue to the offense. That question was usually kept aside for the Deity's Day of verdict, which is ahead of the recourses of every human court. When human beings converse upon possessing supreme authorities of presiding over life and death, their sense of right and wrong have to be alleviated with the calming lie that they are solely responsible for deciding the executed deserved to perish. (Lamb, 2004, 244) A referendum on capital sentence might be refuted for the similar cause that referendums can not lawfully be used to result restriction. Specifically, minority rights, witch a real democracy must consider into impartial amount. Presume a referendum on capital sentence is approved by more than half of the voters. No less than twenty per sent and maybe almost half of the public might be against the law. Their may even be local preponderance of objectors. Hitherto meticulous objectors will be called up to serve as adjudicators. If they go after their sense of right and wrong, the law is undermined. In such circumstances, not innocence or gilt is recognized but by public acceptance of such a dreadful verdict or certainly some barbaric decree. Lawfully objectors may be kept gratis from liabilities. Though, this attempt is a justification to those aiming to shun the jury duty. Then the decree would not be supported by an envoy example of the population, but by people who consider execution as a principle. It is not unusual to hear information of judicial blunders, the mistakes that are revealed more often than not after a long time. And if we can not for all time yet get the sentencing correct, it's a bit much conjecture, we are sufficiently omniscient to know what should be done away with. Constantly there remains a possibility of increasing tendency of judicial slay, since capital sentence is, by its nature, a measure to dispose of the dangers of society. (King, 2005, 126) And governments demonstrate fanatical anxiety with perils to their possessed continuants. This is the consequence of public force on the police to catch the culpable, in spite of causing danger to the guiltless. And it is the analogous mentality to that of demanding the death punishment, despite of the peril of gilt by association or the frame up. It may not compensate, in terms of lives supposed to be saved, to be less obsessively fervent, not to say spiteful. Deterrents perhaps fail to understand the main point of an original ruff justice to hold the destructions of the dispute or blood feud. This was a ground-breaking measure for evenhanded settlements of disputes between clan. Whereas, the conviction, that hostility is discouraged by counter aggression is more an uncertain psychology of how to put off further violence, in a contemporary detached society however outstanding blood brotherhood and family retribution are in the movies. C S Lewis studied an encyclopedia of moral principles from beginning to end to discover that clemency is a universal advice. Those tormented afar endurance as illustrated for example by Slavomir Rawicz, in The Long Walk, might well possess no regret in carnage the torturer, on the spot, if encountered again. Even fire has its confines as a restraint. That just proves that we can only converse of such an abuse. A court, despite the fact that it might not overlook such revenge, would have to be forgiving towards it. (Lamb, 2004, 245) Nevertheless, the way the people behaved with Socrates and Christ put forward the mob or the mass might pass adverse judgment on folk to good for them, rather than to bad. There are US voting proofs that public view would have a preference such a compromise. Majorities for the death punishment from time to time fade away with the obtainable option of a life verdict, devoid of payroll. The additional proffer of compensation to the victim's family also adapts judgment on the matter. Expecting an effectual defense against criminals, without judicially causing danger to guiltless lives has become a challenge. (Lamb, 2004, 244) Granted punishment of the criminals is essential to teach them a lesson, but prison is not a frail compromise with do-gooders, when escapees from justice risk death to a certain extent go to jail. Perchance the dominating authority would do itself a favor by seeking some admirable way out of a privilege worked out from the era of depraved emperors to Home Secretaries. John Stuart Mill has even advocated capital sentence as comparatively more lenient than life imprisonment. But he adds that it still appears the more dreadful prevention to probable wrong-doers, while confessing there is no way of dissuading death penalties. The supremacy of clemency is perhaps the toughest to attain. To forgive is not to be diverted, from mending one's own short comings by complacency. Exculpation may be beyond the ability of many, who suffer from others' iniquity. That is pardonable. But it doesn't have to be away from the law, established by insightful people, though each others' suffering. The only emotion acceptable between human relations is love. For example, Christ's message of love was to replace the old law of a balance of terror. (Lamb, 2004, 245) Tolerance is the only real test of civilization. It is one of man's sterling virtues. Democracy is about tolerating a society to control its dealings by accepted approval. It is not about ventilating chauvinism in judging whether one deserves to exist or perish. These popular judicial murders, formally termed as death sentences, are the depiction of man's bigotry, malice and viciousness, which by no means help the historic standing of democracy. The death punishment can slay an enemy besides perhaps creating several others but forgiveness can disentangle oneself from thoughts haunted by antagonism, the lone hope for peace of mind. Thus holding a referendum on capital punishment could be challenged, from a constitutional standpoint, as an abuse of democratic rites.

ART HISTORY ESSAY In a history that has extended over a thousand years, Roman architecture has proven to be Ã¢â¬ËeternalÃ¢â¬â¢. Combined with intense ambiguities and innovative designs, Roman architecture made use of basic structural elements, such as the arch and vault, to provide greater advantages than previous cultures. Read on as we explore and discuss how the use of the arch and vault established Roman architecture as one of the most creative achievements. The Romans were a civilization of engineers and builders. In all of their history, no great names in science or mathematics beckon to us from across the ages as those of their military geniuses or literary greats do. In the applying of pure knowledge to practice uses, however, their engineers are unsurpassed until one reaches modern times. Without the ability to manufacture parts to standard dimensions close enough to allow them to be interchangeable in finished products without filin and fitting, they nevertheless had huge factories capable of large scale mass production. Engineers traveled with their armies building roads and bridges. In fact, a knowledge of engineering was almost a requirement for advancing through the ranks. After they conquered new territory and created a new province, their engineers laid out cities to a standard plan and provided them with excellent roads and a clean water supply. Once Ancient Rome became a dominating world power, a revolution in architecture began. Imaginations exploded once freed from customs and brought about an architectural rebirth that was inspired by Greece. The rebirth of architecture challenged Romans to build with more imagination and freedom. From their experimentation came the arch and vault. This renewed interest in architecture was also seen as an art form and such things as bridges, aqueducts, arenas and public forums developed and grew from it.
