Transcript of Gettysburg Address (1863) Executive Mansion, Washington, , 186 . Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that "all men are created equal" Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of it, as a final resting place for those who died here, that the nation might live. It is rather for us, the living, to stand here, we here be dedica-ted to the great task remaining before us -- that, from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain; that the nation, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people by the people for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Lincoln, “Gettysburg Address,” Speech Text | [1] Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. [2] Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. [3] But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate-we can not consecrate-we can not hallow-this ground. Textual Authentication Information Letter from a Birmingham Jail [King, Jr.] 16 April 1963 My Dear Fellow Clergymen: While confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent statement calling my present activities "unwise and untimely." Seldom do I pause to answer criticism of my work and ideas. If I sought to answer all the criticisms that cross my desk, my secretaries would have little time for anything other than such correspondence in the course of the day, and I would have no time for constructive work. But since I feel that you are men of genuine good will and that your criticisms are sincerely set forth, I want to try to answer your statement in what I hope will be patient and reasonable terms. I think I should indicate why I am here in Birmingham, since you have been influenced by the view which argues against "outsiders coming in." I have the honor of serving as president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization operating in every southern state, with headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.

Robespierre and St Just: SEXY TIME, a misc. books fanfic St. Just paced the length of the courtyard, biting his lower lip in thought. The reports had been coming in from all over Paris: opposition to the Terror had grown, and riots had started to break out in the streets. He remembered the brave words of the honourable man who had given him so much: "Hidden domestic enemies, freely speaking the word "liberty," stem the flow of life. And then, as sudden as if his thoughts had become words, he was there. Louis's breath caught in his throat as Robespierre came up behind him and tenderly wrapped his arms around the younger man. the familiar musky scent of Robespierre's coat. "Max..." he started, craning his head to face the leader of the Terror. "Didn't I tell you not to walk alone at night?" "I was only just going back inside," Antoine looked up at Maximilien and a coy smile began to form on his flawless face, "to see you." "You can't win me over, you little tease," Robespierre playfully ruffled Antoine's hair and gently let go of him. "Oh? "No!

Free will : Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online ‘Free will’ is the conventional name of a topic that is best discussed without reference to the will. Its central questions are ‘What is it to act (or choose) freely?’, and ‘What is it to be morally responsible for one’s actions (or choices)?’ These two questions are closely connected, for freedom of action is necessary for moral responsibility, even if it is not sufficient. Philosophers give very different answers to these questions, hence also to two more specific questions about ourselves: (1) Are we free agents? Incompatibilists hold that freedom is not compatible with determinism. The incompatibilists have a good point, and may be divided into two groups. The second group of incompatibilists is less sanguine. Suitably developed, this argument against moral responsibility seems very strong.

Free will debate: What does free will mean and how did it evolve? Illustration by Alex Eben Meyer It has become fashionable to say that people have no free will. Many scientists cannot imagine how the idea of free will could be reconciled with the laws of physics and chemistry. Brain researchers say that the brain is just a bunch of nerve cells that fire as a direct result of chemical and electrical events, with no room for free will. Scientists take delight in (and advance their careers by) claiming to have disproved conventional wisdom, and so bashing free will is appealing. Arguments about free will are mostly semantic arguments about definitions. These arguments leave untouched the meaning of free will that most people understand, which is consciously making choices about what to do in the absence of external coercion, and accepting responsibility for one’s actions. There is no need to insist that free will is some kind of magical violation of causality. Different sciences discover different kinds of causes. Does it deserve to be called free?

Assemblée nationale : Histoire et patrimoine L’Assemblée nationale possède un patrimoine artistique et architectural considérable et des archives historiques d’une grande richesse, qui portent les traces des régimes politiques qui se sont succédé en France depuis l’Ancien régime. Elle est également un lieu chargé de mémoire où se sont déroulés les plus grands débats politiques de l’histoire française et où résonnent encore les discours des grands orateurs qui ont marqué leur temps. Mais l’Assemblée est surtout une institution vivante et moderne où le passé, à sa manière, alimente aujourd’hui encore la réflexion et le débat politique. Véritable « Maison des citoyens », l’Assemblée se doit d’être ouverte au public, que ce soit par le biais des nombreuses visites qui y sont organisées in situ, des débats parlementaires auxquels peut assister le public ou des vidéos et de la visite virtuelle qui sont mis à disposition des internautes.
