Private Freedoms, Public Legislation A Case for Same-Sex and Polygamous Marriages Using John Stuart Mills On Liberty - Literature Essay Samples

The freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the guiding moral principles of the U.S., as is the view that every man or woman is created equal. We may buttress these claims with John Stuart Mills harm principle from On Liberty as a moral underpinning by recognizing that marriage is an essentially private institution (made public only through legality) that does not interfere with anyones life external to the marriage‹in other words, the government has no right to legislate morality of a private and innocuous nature. With this in mind, to maintain the morality our country is founded on, and, consequently, the justice of its nuptial laws, we must legalize the marriage of both same-sex couples and polygamous unions.In Smith and Stevens v. Greenville, the essential injustice is the basic denial of rights to humans on the basis of sexual orientation. As Barney Frank points out, homosexuals are tax-paying citizens entitled to standard civic benefits. We cannot ov erlook the economic injustice perpetrated by this bias. Heterosexual married couples receive tax breaks; homosexual couples do not. Homosexual couples end up literally paying for their sexual orientation (and, in a sense, compensating for the discounts of heterosexuals), while not receiving any recognition or benefits. This is akin to the formerly hypocritical draft policy, in which ephebic Americans could die, but not vote, for their government. Not only does same-sex marriage not directly harm anyone else, but the standing institution of marriage does violate Mill by shortchanging homosexual couples.Furthermore, any question of whether homosexuals lead morally suspect lifestyles is rendered increasingly moot by scientific studies which show evidence of homosexuality as a biological, not societal or psychological, trait, one found even in octopi. If these studies are true (and common sense backs them; given rampant, nearly omnipresent homophobia, who would willingly choose to subject himself to universal disdain as a homosexual?), then the only objection to treating homosexuals with general equality is bigotry, and bigotry is an unacceptable mode of judgment.But even more enlightened critics argue that homosexual marriage compromises the sanctity of the institution, perhaps leading to a snowball effect of disintegrating integrity. Similar sentiments were doubtless raised when interracial marriage was legalized in 1968. As Sullivan argues, marriage has changed many, many times over the centuries. Each change should be judged on its own terms, not as part of some seamless process of alleged disintegration (Sullivan 280). It has changed because of acknowledged biases required change. Critics argue that interracial marriage does not fundamentally alter the foundation of marriage as same-sex coupling does, and that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. By this logic, does a loveless marriage of convenience or arrangement uphold the tenets of ma rriage by virtue of its participants being of opposite sex? This is far more damaging to the institution. Marriage is first and foremost about the official proclamation of love and commitment, qualities homosexuals are fully able to meet. The only difference between same- and opposite-sex couples, then, is that heterosexuals are capable of reproduction, another supposed meaning of marriage. Does a willfully childless heterosexual marriage jeopardize the institution? What about if one or both members are sterile? or fear for a potential childs health? or if they choose to adopt? Can we fault them for these choices, or lack of choices? Are critics of same-sex marriage satisfied when a pedophilic mass-murderer impregnates his unemployed, glue-sniffing wife because their heterosexual union has produced a child? On a pragmatic level, overpopulation is a problem we should work to control, so homosexual marriages even serve a morally noble purpose.But what if homosexual couples wan t to adopt? Wont their children grow up in an improper environment? Elshtain argues that the ideal of family is a launching pad into more universal commitments (Elshtain 128), but she privileges a restrictive ideal of sexual and intimate relations, namely heterosexuality (Sullivan 59). Yet half of all marriages end in divorce, demonstrating their inadequate reach to Elshtains ideal. Homosexual couples desiring children must adopt, indicating a willingness to parent, the likes of which many accidental pregnancies cannot boast. More importantly, however, same-sex couples who raise children and bear the official seal of a marriage license will gain a mainstream acceptance and act as a launching pad that overturns many moral, universal wrongs. Firstly, any strike for tolerance in one field creates a ripple effect of tolerance for others‹note how the feminist movement grew out of the civil rights movement. A moral victory for one minority is a moral victory for every minority, and legalizing same-sex marriage is a step for greater universal tolerance. Secondly, the illegality of same-sex marriage fosters a feeling of alienation among homosexuals. In the same way that black children under segregation felt a distinct sense of inferiority, the taboo nature of homosexuality can be a psychologically tormenting fact of life for many homosexuals. To allow this continue by promoting a legal divide is a willful act of harming the self-esteem of millions of homosexuals, who feel that if not even the law is on their side, then perhaps no one is. This is another direct infringement of Mill, and the only way to overturn it is by legalizing same-sex marriage, an act that allows homosexuals their constitutional freedoms, treats them with equality, and accords with Mill.Many of these claims apply to polygamous marriages, such as economic injustice. The makeup of polygamous families seems to frighten critics. Is a single parent any better or less equipped than two parents to raise a family with good ethics? No; the number of parents matters less than does the attention to and skill of parenting. If anything, polygamous marriages may provide a greater wealth of parental care. Many families already function in this way, with relatives acting as surrogate parents‹why not make this a legal right? Sullivan argues that sexuality is a state whereas polygamy is an activity, so there is no need for legislative change (Sullivan 279). This debases the philosophy of polygamy, which reasons that if Platonic and familial love can be diffused, then the same should apply to romantic love. This is as much a state of being as is believing that eros should apply to ones own sex or the opposite sex. If polygamy is not a state because of its ambiguity of love, then bisexuality is not a state, a claim Sullivan would find hard to support. Romantic love is hard to come by with one person; if a taxpaying citizen is able to find it in plurality, then preve ntion of traditional proclamation of this love is another transgression of Mill. And, so long as polygamy is incorporated without sexism (i.e., only a man may have multiple spouses), it remains a private practice that doesnt directly harm anyone else. In critics eyes polygamy, and same-sex marriage, may harm the institution of marriage, but marriage is above all else a private institution that emerges publicly only as a pronouncement of love and to reap legal benefits. You may not approve, but to deny these basic rights is to deny the basic right to equality of U.S. citizenship and to advocate government preclusion of private and benign freedoms.

I Am the World - 1431 Words

I AM THE WORLD Translation by Karlo Antonio G. David My translation of Alejandro Abadilla’s poem â€Å"ako ang daigdig† has proven to be the most popular post in my blog thus far. Many of the search items that led people to the post indicate that an analysis was being sought. This consequently gave me the idea of making an analysis of my own. Here, I will make a close reading of the poem. I will proceed by using English, but will focus on the original Filipino text. Later I shall attempt to translate my analysis to Filipino as a contribution to Filipino Intellectual consciousness. â€Å"Ako ang daigdig† comes in the form of a declaration spoken in the first person, with the persona describing him/herself. Among the descriptions the speaker†¦show more content†¦The third section ends: â€Å"damdamin/larawan/buhay/tula/ako† (â€Å"feeling/image/life/poem/I†), which we can interpret as a movement of reduction and expansion, from feelings to image (solidity of specification), from image to life (which is to say the image becomes representative of life), from life to poem (the structuralist eschewing of the external world’s influence in meaning), ending with the insistent†I,† which we can interpret in two ways: that the poem’s feelings, images and life are all expressed by the poem’s mere being (again, MacLeish); or, continuing that interpretation of the vain poem, the poem’s insistence to mean (and consequently its insistence to declare its being a poem) ruins the feelings, images, life, and wha t little poetry there is in the text (instead of being a piece of expression, of image or a reflection of life, the text betrays its attempt too much that the attempt distracts the reader from the message). If we interpret the poem to be a declaration by the human being as a reader, however, the elements of the poem take on different meanings. The persona’s description of him/herself as â€Å"the world of the poem† reflect the reader-response theory of literary reading: the meaning of texts comes entirely from the reader, who ascribes meaning unto the signs presented toShow MoreRelatedI Am On Top Of The World1509 Words   |  7 PagesI m on top of the world.

Leaders against Followers in Animal Farm by George Orwell

Published in England on August 17th 1945 and written by Eric Arthur Blair (also known as George Orwell) between 1943 and 1944, Animal Farm is a novella that takes place and has the same ideologies of the Russian Revolution on an imaginary farm. Major characters such as Napoleon and Boxer the Horse play important roles concerning freedom and equality. Napoleon, considered by most to be the leader of Animal Farm is manipulative and selfish; does not care about others, and does not like to be bothered when it comes to gaining full control. Boxer the Horse, on the other hand, is the strongest yet most gullible of all the animals. He believes everything Napoleon tells him and never questions whether he is losing his freedom or not. This novella argues how a farm, just like a country, can transform for the worst with leaders who do not know how to govern it. Just like Karl Marx once said â€Å"The ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of its ruling class.† Like any other leader in the world, Napoleon does not differ. Not all leaders are dictators and not all dictators are leaders. Napoleon, due to his manipulative behavior gains hatred from a lot of people around him who cannot say anything to him due to their fright. By constantly changing the commandments, he creates a tension within Animal Farm making the animals believe that everything he does is done in the right way. An example of change is when he changes the commandment concerning slaughter of another animal.

The s Article How Will You Measure Your Life - 935 Words

I want to be a physician that leads by example and the most valuable way to do that is delivering the best quality care that I can to my patients. To do this will be a challenge in a difficult to navigate and changing healthcare system, but I hope to learn from my own experiences, exposure, and position myself with the best possible support to succeed. After reading Clayton Christiansen’s article â€Å"How Will You Measure Your Life?† I began to think of ways that I could go about doing that. I think that it is important to not only think about about how things go at work, but how you are as a person. I would hope that the people I care about view me as someone they can count on, someone they know will do the right thing, and someone that they have seen do the right thing. One of the key things that Christiansen touches on in his article is the allocation of resources. You cannot do everything, but you should try a have a large impact on the right things. I will make sure to create a balance in my life, both home and professional. I will need to focus on both and be prepared the sometimes the gains may not be immediate in either aspect, but by putting time and work in I will be more motivated and happy at both. Putting in a disproportionate amount of time and energy will only lead to an imbalance that would potentially get worse and worse.

Although all Jews felt that God was either no longer there or simply did not exist, this quote was used as a hyperbole to make a seemingly inferior race feel the heat of a religious upheaval. â€Å"Never shall I forget that first night in camp, which has turned my night into one long night seven times sealed. † (Wiesel 32) By using hyperbole, this excerpt lets Wiesel express this symbolic complex sentence to exaggerate the agonizing feeling of the holocaust being one long and dark quandary. â€Å"Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my god and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. (Wiesel 32) By giving the personification that his dreams were turned to dust helps us as readers understand the full extent of the gruesome nature that had changed the lives of millions forever. This book is a perfect example of Man’s inhumanity to man. Babies were shot and burned right in front of Elie. This could be like someone kicking a puppy in front of you and knowing you can’t do anything to stop it. The book title Night helps us as readers understand the dark, outstretched gloomy nature of the holocaust, and the symbolic side of the emotion being felt during war. The holocaust was full of remorseful and dark memories like the night sky is black. Elie’s book titled Night truly shows how terrifying this war was. â€Å"Over there, that’s where you’re going to be taken. That’s you’re grave. Over there. † (Wiesel 38) This literal compound sentence was an excerpt from the book. Its literal effect on readers helped us understand that the thought of death could not be escaped. There was no place the Jews could go, and nothing Jews could do to escape the horrific thought of a horrifying death. Whether this be starvation, a bullet to the chest, or the rematorium, the thought of death haunted them all. What was described as one of the scariest things happening during this time were men turning on family members. Between killing for a piece of bread and abandoning parents or children for being weak, the holocaust had men acting not as men, but as wild animals. Also on the literal side the excerpt â€Å"Never sha ll I forget that smoke. † (Wiesel, 32) The smoke that represented where he could have died, and the smoke that turned innocent infant children into nothing more than a diminishing pile of ash. During the holocaust men were not treated as such. To the eyes of German SS soldiers Jews were merely dirt. Wiesel’s symbolic side of the book was shown through personification, hyperbole, syntax and a variety of various sentence structures such as using ways to describe how dark and gloomy his â€Å"long nights† stay at camp was. The title also brought out the more literal side like the smoke he swore never to forget. The symbolic and literal nature of the title Night was a description like no other of Elie Wiesel’s journey through hell. How to cite The Holocaust and Book Title Night, Papers
