Essay #1: Discrimination Through Genetic Screening

Starting off, I believe discrimination through genetic screening can be justified. Greed is in human nature, either for money, property, and many more. Nobody would want to choose to live an horrible life without any money, food, and home. Like all others, entrepreneurs would want his/her business to have the best people that would fit well with their environment, but also somehow improve their business. So, I believe it would be reasonable for the business to have genetic screening results of people who wants to be in their business so that they can choose people that will fit well with the business and improve their product.

However, censoring the Internet for children would definitely limit what adults could view and communicate.

Preventing your children to have access to inappropriate websites can be achieved without removing the website itself. I strongly believe it is the parent's responsibility to limit the access of the Internet for their children. For example, filtering can be done by parents by making a list of obscene words and phrases, and making the system unable to download the material if those words or phrases are found.

Secondly, the censorship of information on the internet takes away people's right to free speech, which violates the First Amendment. Swear words are censored because of how people think it is harmful for children, and sometimes adults. However, I think differently. I believe swear words are one part of our expression. We talk to people with profanity to show and explain more about your state of feeling at

    “Censorship is the child of fear and the father of ignorance.” said Laurie Halse Anderson. Censorship is limiting access to information, ideas or books in order to prevent knowledge or freedom of thought. It suppresses writing or speech for moral, political, or security reasons. Bleeping out swear words in songs, changing the words to more kid friendly version, cutting out sections of a speech, or even just paraphrasing to avoid offending anyone can be considered censorship. Restricting people's freedom of speech is not only against the law, but it also limits access to information - no matter how sensitive the topic.…

    Ethical behavior should be encouraged because the behavior helps sales, keeps employees honest to consumers, and does not put a negative reputation on the company. Business ethics and sales are compatible to a certain extent, but Mitch and Murray made them incompatible due to their pressure on employees to sell an exaggerated amount of leads. To demonstrate, when Moss and Aaronow are discussing the unfair treatment they are given by Mitch and Murray, Moss suggests that “someone should rob the office” (Mamet 23). Moss wants to stage a robbery so that him and Aaronow can obtain the premium leads and sell them to a successful salesman, Jerry Graff. This is ironic because Moss explains that the…

    They believe that "censorship of language is often an attempt to control language change, " (pg 435) and takes away human rights and freedom of speech. They explain that "language does not equal thought, so attempts to center thought by censoring language are both misguided and bound to fail" (pg. 439). Censoring language by replacing the word with a less-offensive one, does not neccsarily make it much better, and controlling the words does not always control the thought (443). Many individuals share these thoughts on censored language, because it does not allow for free expression, therefore neglecting basic human rights.…
