    I said this earlier but when it comes to restraints, the only ones that should be there are the ones you put on yourself. This is very important when it comes to the people of today. A rule is a rule and just having one means that there is a huge issue, that issue being what is what. We liv in a era of participation awards, by that I mean that everyone has to feel like a special snowflake whether they are or not. The reason I bring this up is because of the one main rule Libertarianism has, that being you can do whatever you want, as long as it does not remove the freedoms of others. In this day an age I suggest that would be a very difficult task to decide what is overstepping that one boundary, Removing that one rule doesn’t seem outrageous due to the fact that you can’t abuse a rule if there is no rule. Humans are very consistent and they like to be consistent when iit comes to their daily lives, this is why going by their own rules will be better for them.

    Sentences in Mango Street are all short and often fragmented. This lets the reader pause, so that meaningful lines .have more impact because the reader can let everything sink in.

I am the only one who understands them… Four who do not belong here but are here… Their strength is secret. They send ferocious roots beneath the ground… Four whose only reason is to be and be.” (Page 75)…

    One great example of this is when Benedick first comes back from war and her first remark to him is “I wonder that you will still be talking, Signior Benedick, nobody marks you” (A1; S1; L114-115). This not only shows her hatred toward Benedick in the beginning of the play but also shows that she can have a very wicked tongue and she is not afraid to speak her mind. Telling him that she does not know why he even wastes his breath by talking, nobody respects him so in her mind he should do them…

    was ready to make sure they would never return. When I finally got close to them, I sneaked around until I was hiding behind the leader. In a deep voice I yelled, "GET OUT OR FACE YOUR DOOM!!!!!!!" ( I was trying to be a intimidating as possible.) I readied my bow and shot a warning shot past the leader's ear.

    Absolutism is the One and Only History abounds with tales of destructive dictatorships and the failed democracies. Which is better: governments with casualties or casual governments? Absolutism is a more expedient form of government because it is quick and painless; it provides the guidance and boundaries to keep countries and citizens out of turmoil; democracy is slow, messy, and ineffective. In the United States of America, a representative democracy, Congress takes long to do little. The…
