I believe that our society is at the worst it has ever been as the generations go on and on. Society has made girls/women think that there meant to be skinny and have large breasts and if you don't then your not a real woman or girl. Society has made boys/men think that there meant to have abs and be really fit in order to be hot. in our society everyone is supposed to have the same clothes and technology to fit in. Everyone's has to go by the latest trends. I'm not saying that everyone's judg...

'defense of others' is too limited in practice, bob the serial killer should be killed in this hypothetical bob is a serial killer on the run and's shown every reason he'll continue killing. you see him by chance at a state park. a high reason to think if you try to call authorties he will get away. u have a gun- moral to kill him? remember, 'defense of others' as a legal and moral system is often said to be only permissible if the pending harm to another is 'imminent' which usually is sa...

tobacco should be heavily taxed to reimburse for government health care cost

dairygirl4u2c
Zennie5000

the idea, that cancer and other bad health effects from smoking causes an increase in health care costs, in a country that is heavily subsidized by the government. so, whatever it costs should be made up for in cigarette taxes. my understanding is right now the costs of tobacco to the government are not sufficiently made up for in sales taxes. if it were, it would be more prohibitive for smokers, so they would't smoke as much, and it'd be ensure the government is getting reimbursed for what i...
