No because teachers are not police. In moments of stress, typically the first thing to erode is our motor skills. So the argument that educators should be ready to dodge gunfire, avoid hitting students and take out a gunman so someone hundreds of miles away can buy military-grade weapons and ammunition for kicks is a very stupid argument to make. And yet, we heard elements of that reasoning soon after the movie theater killings in Aurora, Colorado. Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert asked: "It does make me wonder, with all those people in the theater, was there nobody that was carrying a gun that could have stopped this guy more quickly?"

In an age of... Ignorance,
What opportunity is there for the observant person Who has not retired from life? How can we discuss the pros and cons of any proposition, Given the desire for answers that require no thought? Always the discriminating mind draws distinctions of kind or degree between two objects that are seemingly alike.
Such observations, although fortifying, Are not suitable for wider circulation among the crowd.
Our public discourse consists of loud:
*Unproven principles and gross exaggerations.
*No nation ever learned the art of independent thinking;
*As a whole, we tend to wallow in simplicities.
*What is most of value has the least currency.
No, not in the way it was perceived in the period it was realized. The word 'classicism' means a movement in literature and art during the 17th and 18th centuries in Europe that favored rationality and restraint and strict forms. People today do not adhere to rationality and to very little restraint. The restraint they do have in in large part due to the fear of punishment and not to their being their own moral agent. People do not induce self discipline and muster the fortitude it takes to become a productive human.
NO and here is why: I would first like to know who is going to make the determination of who lives or not and why? Where is the line drawn? I have a patient that is BPD, major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety and PTSD that went to college and grad school and finished with a 4.0. This person cannot be a therapist, but can contribute enormously in other ways. What t if her parents just decided to off her? Of course they are most of her problem to begin with.
Yes. Tests and studies show there is some truth to this proposal. The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis
The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis states that the language an individual knows shapes the way they think about events in the world around them (Ashcraft & Radvansky, 2010). This means the language each individual knows affects their thought process, how they think, and what they think about. An example of this would be the English concept of “green, an individual can only think about the color green by using the word green. The thought is dictated by the word used in that language.
There are even different degrees of the theory. Strong “Whorfianism” concludes that language controls both thought and action to a large degree. In other words an individual cannot think outside of their language and their language determines what that individual does. Returning to our example of green, an individual under strong “Whorfianism” has only the ability to think about “green” using the word dictated by the language.
The less extreme point of view is known as weak “Whorfianism”. Weak “Whorfianism” states that language influences and shapes thought. This means that individuals can have different concepts of what something is but our label of that thing influences our thought about it. Returning to our example, an individual can picture the color green in their mind and they have label for that color which is “green”. The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis, at all levels, has caused a lot of clamor among theorists, linguists, and scientists.
Yes 'he' is Because god IS hell. Believing in that archaic, patriarchal, moronically, written scripture and of some god and Jesus in this day and age is a really sad effigy for our education system. Why would anyone profess 'love' to an entity that makes them suffer? That is what marriage is for.
No not at all I have a PhD in philosophy and I understand the inference. The idiot he wrote the apology to should have had her degree revoked for being such a fing idiot. It is just a fing fact some degrees a basically worthless in monetary terms. But people are stupid to think that just going to college is automatically going to make you rich either.
No, unless it is A class about religion. Or the professor asked the student to bring such text for some reason. If you are going to a religious school it might be a different story? I went to undergrad school and it was Quaker, so I had to take two Quaker religion courses, although I'm atheist, I enjoyed it
Yes because it is a necessary evil. So, yes, we should cut military spending.
But we should cut it gradually.
We should cut it gradually enough that we don't suddenly screw ourselves in areas of the world in which our military spending is performing a critical function.
And we should cut military spending by re-allocating it, so the overall level of government spending on things like equipment and infrastructure doesn't drop.
We should cut our military spending because, as much as we want a "strong defense, we certainly don't need to spend $700+ billion a year on our military when the next-biggest spender on the planet spends only ~$140 billion a year.
