The situation between Pakistan and India can be compared to the one between Quebec and Canada. The Muslims and Hindus caused a lot of violence within India because of conflicting ideas. Therefore, the mainly Muslim parts of India were made into Pakistan. Here, the Muslims could be compared to the French Canadians who want to be separated from Canada. Although the parting of Quebec from its country sounds like a good idea to some, it would not be required as it was for the Muslims and Hindus.

In Canada, the province of Quebec is probably the most interesting province there is, why? Because there is two types of person in Quebec and they are the francophone and the Anglophone. The francophone, already being a minority in an Anglophone country, fear the lost of their values as a result of also becoming a minority in Quebec too. However, the francophone have a lot of similarities with the Anglophone when it comes to values and beliefs, making this fear... surd. Since, the years have passed and there is still no sign of possible conflict or major conflict.

We can all agree that Canada and India are different in many ways such as for their respective history, geographical area, culture, and much more. However, those two seemingly different countries had similar conflicts within the communities living there. In Canada, the French-Canadian nationalist movement brings up the idea that the province of Quebec should be independent from the rest of the country. The reasoning behind it is often due to cultural differences such as the language.

Political and social disagreements have always existed within a nation. Different opinions on religious, political and nationalist views create a division within communities of people who work and live together every single day. Tensions seen in India between the Hindu/Muslim groups can be related to the French/English ongoing debate in Quebec. Many political figures such as Mohandas Gandhi and Mohammed Ali Jinnah, who both have had a big influence on the Indian people, both had different views on how India had to be governed and how the Indian people should live.

Looking back in the past of the two countries, both India and Quebec were ruled by the British. This control the British had on the Indians and the citizens of Quebec lead both of these populations to want their leaders out, after they realized that their presence was simply a continuous abuse of their local goods. A sum up of all kinds of overpowered actions made by the British is the origin of the first nationalist movement from both of these countries.

In my point of view India and Quebec have many similarities regarding their past and present situation about minorities and majorities. First of all, an important event that occurred in India is that England drained India wealth’s by taking their raw material, transforming it in England and then selling the finished product back to in India. Therefore, Britain derived greater profit from India’s resources than they did.

There are a lot of similarities between India/Pakistan and Quebec/Canada, but I think that the biggest similarity we are sharing is how Quebec is so different from Canada and how Pakistan is different from India. At the moment in Quebec we are thinking about separating ourselves like the pakistan did in India because of our difference in cultures, religions and language. We are also sharing similiraties with our background, that India and Pakistan was only one and they all came from the same place, like Quebec is part of the Canada because we were the same colonie before.

One would think that Canada and India have nothing in common because they have different cultures and are far apart from each other, but when we take a closer look, we see some similarities. For one thing, both countries where colonised by Great Britain. Moreover, both countries had to decide whether to divide one of their provinces in two or not.

The Current issue with the PQ imposing the Charter of Values has caused many debates on whether or not this violates the Consitution. They say that religious preference should not be showed in their workplace. The PQ's main objective is to separate from Canada. We can relate this issue with the history of India and Pakistan.

Countries history, culture and population can be different from another, but as well very similar. Quebec and India have some similar things as well as different. First, for many years, the French people, great minority in Canada, in Quebec have been fighting to be seen and represented. Presently they are a majority in Quebec, but a great minority in Canada where most people speak English or other languages. Now if we look at India, its quite similar to Canada where the French fight against the English except that in India, it’s the Hindus and Muslims who have conflict between them.

The territory of Canada and India are similar, yet different in many ways. Both of them have or had a minority and a majority in their country which are separated because of many cultural differences like religion and language. In India, Hindu had a bigger population than the Muslim while in Canada, the English population outnumbers French population.

Quebec and India share many similarities regarding nationalism including the same colonial ruler, the identity of a nation within a nation, the strong will for independence and declaration as its own governing body and cultural patriotism. Dating back towards the end of colonial period in Quebec in the late 1700s, French Canadiens followed under British rule until the Quebec Act[1] was implemented in order to accommodate Canadiens to follow their own religion and follow French civil law.

The “majorities” in a society such as the French in Quebec or the Hindi’s in India; try to impose their culture to the “minorities”. For example if you look at Quebec the last couple of years, they are trying to decrease the English language and promote the French language; this is cause a lot of conflict in the society. Now if you look at India, the Hindi’s are trying to slow down the growth of the Muslim religion. The “majorities” of each society are trying to prevent the growth of the “minorities” to preserve the culture.

When we look at the history of Canada and India, both are very simular.In India you had the conflict between the Hindu and the Muslims fighting amungst each other and both hindu and muslim fight against the british to take them out of their country so they can govern themselves. It is simular to Canadien history were French Canadiens, English and First Nations fight against each other for terrictory, political and religious reasons. In both India and Canada, a country and province is created due to the tentions between Hindus and Muslims and tentions between the French and English.

    Injustice regarding human rights and liberties have always been omnipresent in all countries around the world throughout history. Colonialism and imperialism can be considered a form of injustice because of the dominance of a country on another that may be forced upon, unnecessary and unwanted. Canada has had several debates questioning the relevance and potential benefits of Quebec's independence, whereas India has strived for many years for their freedom from the British rule.

As classically ethical as it may sound, every human deserves an equal chance at liberty and free from prejudice. You point out both sides of the ethical dilemma, which is if the man got shot because he was African-American or if the police officers would have shot anyone in this situation. This case-study brings us to a widely mediated phenomenon which is racial profiling: law agents arresting or stopping an individual in a seemingly random fashion based on stereotypes. Of course, it is persecutory for any individual to be stopped in the street for being African-American, or as the law enforcement officers claim “suspicious”. According to an article by Alexis C. Madrigal, the Ferguson Police Department recorded an alarming 4,632 street stops and 562 searches for African-Americans, while Caucasians have 686 stops and a petty 47 searches. There is an evident disparity and it shines a bad light on police departments since they clearly oppress a whole population group. There is a prevalent problem, and racism is underlining it. The data from the article unfortunately shows that Darrien Hunt, the victim in your case study, have a statistically significant chance of having been shot due to racism.

Your post points out an important element of anxiety: when it strikes, it affects everything. Anxiety often exists simultaneously with other disturbances such as insomnia, trouble concentrating, and so on. As you mentioned, there are different solutions to cope with anxiety and the list goes on. It is important to point out that everybody deals with anxiety and stress in different ways. Lucy Dwyer in “When Anxiety Hits at School” elaborates on testimonies of students who suffered from anxiety attack while attempting to perform at school. She argues that anxiety can be due to technology, as it pressures students to do things quicker as “there is a lot to learn” all the time. It explains how the current generation in school and colleges have to perform since they are asked to live up to so many expectations. It sure does not help any of us relieve stress. Moreover, some unfortunate cases about young students having suicidal thoughts due to stress and anxiety is alarming. The article only emphasizes how anxiety should be addressed to the general public as something common, but treatable. You have a great list of coping techniques, and hopefully students will find their stress relieved because of it!

In my opinion, the death penalty is unethical because it brings unnecessary suffering on the offender. Moreover, it has not been proven that the death penalty deters crime rate. This means that it will create more pain than pleasure for society or the offender. According to many researchers, the death penalty does not in fact deter murder, which means that happiness in society is not really increased. Moreover, apparently society has to pay higher taxes for executing a death penalty .There was “a recent study of California death penalty costs” that revealed “that state taxpayers have spent billions of dollars to execute 13 inmates since capital punishment was reinstated in 1978” (Hance et al. 1).In addition, the study claimed that “a death penalty prosecution costs up to 20 times as much as a life-without-parole case” (Hance et al. 1).

Personally, I find your topic to be very interesting. For one thing, I noticed an increase in my academic performance when I was able to schedule myself to get at least 8 hours a slept per day. These 8 hours of slept helped me save the energy and concentration I needed to study .Moreover, this allowed me to study for test and finish my term papers in advance. The University Health Center website explains the consequences of sleep loss. For example, it states that lack of sleep can lower a student’s immune system, decrease a student’s academic performance, and increase stress levels. Moreover, the website claims that students who sleep at least 7-8 hours have a higher GPA than those who get 6 or fewer. Finally, I suggest you go check the website because there are more interesting facts that will help you support your point of view.

First of all, I find your post is very interesting and well written. You seem to hold an act utilitarian’s principle of utility, because you believe in the act that will bring the most happiness for those who are involved (the criminals and society). I recommend you go check the website to better understand the theory of act utilitarianism.

I found the topic you chose to write about very interesting because this issue has been around for many years. I found your arguments helped prove your point that its immoral for the government to refuse a person‘s will regarding his/her body since every person has the right to autonomy. Moreover, I agree that we should respect a person’s autonomy and let them do as they wish with their bodies. I was able to find a very interesting article that shows that “Oregon physicians have a more favorable attitude toward legalized physician-assisted suicide” (Lee).This article shows that even physicians agree that a person has the right to autonomy and whether or not that person wants to die is up to him or her. Therefore, this article will help you add another argument to your essay.

After reading your essay, I noticed that it’s well written and your arguments are well described. I found that you were able to find good arguments to prove your point that capital punishment is unethical. However, I will argue that capital punishment is ethical. By killing a criminal, who committed murder, it sends a message to society that killing isn’t tolerated. In countries, where capital punishment is allowed, crime rates are considerably lower than countries that forbid it. Why should criminals be allowed to live in prison, where they are feed and taken care of? .I found an interesting article that shows that many people are in approval of the death penalty. In the article, you will find statistics that prove the majority of Americans were in approval of the death penalty.

In my opinion, your essay is well written and your arguments make sense .I agree with you that girls are socially pressured by the media. However, I find that your essay is lacking a clear ethical principle. Moreover, you should state whether or not you think it’s moral for the media to socially pressure girls. I found an interesting article that shows the effect the media has on girls. This article will give you information that will help you answer the question: Is it moral for the media to socially pressure girls?
