Politics of Russia INTRODUCTION The history of the Russian people reflects an ever changing political environment that has taken twists and turns that have been bloody at times. The Russian government has evolved from various monarchies, to the empire of the Czars, to the brief democracy under the Duma, to revolutionary Communism, then finally a Post-Communism democracy. The interesting thing about the Russian model is that in all its forms it has been uniquely different then like models...
New Aspects of Leadership with Globalization A significant part of effective leadership is the close connection between the leader and the follower, which often determines the success of the leader’s mission. Unfortunately, this leader-follower relationship cannot be created according to some simple formula.

I didn’t pay much attention at first but after I got settled I looked to see a plane flying into a building. I was shocked. A thousand questions began to run through my head-where was this located?, was it ORNL where my Dad works?, or was it...
People in the United States value their civil rights; it gives them a sense of freedom. Without additional security measures to sustain that freedom, they will have no civil rights to value. The civil liberties the U.S. proudly exhibits, comes with a price. After the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States, President Bush pushed congress to pass the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act allows law enforcement to arrest and prosecute suspected people for associating with groups or...
Electoral College: 2000 Election Results Fair? With the surge of controversy surrounding the recent election, the United States has rekindled the Electoral College debate.

Anthony Down’s basic tenet is that governments, being enormously powerful economic entities, should be considered at least as much from an economic standpoint as a political one. “But little progress has been made toward a generalized yet realistic behavior role for a national government similar to the rules traditionally used for consumers and producers.” (P. 3). The book, then,...
This country is one that has always prided itself on its freedoms. If the government mandates forced population control, it would go against everything this country stands for. The United States of America is the land of the free. We have freedom of choice that many countries do not. America has never been a place where the government invoked rules that invade our personal lives. I agree that we are using all of our resources quickly. However, I believe that the key to increasing the quality of...
