Yet, for all this effort there is no universal agreement on the definition of leadership, and there is a high chance there never will be.

Greece had many thoughts about the noble ideas of human dignity and beauty and Western civilization is believed to have begun in Greece. The Romans were influenced by these thoughts and also sought to portray man as a superior being.

...AGAINST ABORTION "America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience.

...NATURE OF LEADERSHIP What leadership definition works best for you? More than a century of study has gone into leadership and the nature of leadership.

Only on StudentShare
...Against Evolution This essay addresses whether evolution ought to be taught in public schools. In my view, the answer is that there is no valid basis for including evolution in public school curriculums. My arguments are not based on the Culture Wars commonly presented in the mass media. Rather, my arguments are based on the observation that evolution is an unproven concept, as it pertains to the origins of life on Earth, and that it is too often manipulated by people with a political agenda. To this end, this essay will discuss the nature of the evolution argument, why it should not be taught in public schools, and the implications if it were included in public school curriculums...
