Meme assignment

In Islam religion there is 5 times in a day required prayers in a specific time. So, in my photo the man praying in the outside and police protecting him. I decided to choose this topic because nowadays in the world a big issue of religion discrimination. Civil liberties of USA are protecting each religion and allows us to practice our religions. The First Amendment is perhaps the most famous provision of the Bill of Rights. It is arguably also the most extensive because it guarantees both religious freedoms and the right to express your views in public. Specifically, the First Amendment says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” (Krutz & Sylvie Waskiewicz).

The image represents a significant moment in a continuing struggle for civil liberties, that man who praying shows how liberties may be exercised while still protected by law. This picture shows the significance of defending each people regardless their color, belief or origin. The police, in this context is more than just a police officer, he is a symbol of hope, guaranteeing that people can freely practice their religion without scarying of discrimination or punishment. 

Well known leader of civil right movement Martin Luther King once said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. The battle for equality is a global issue that affects every person. His quote clearly shows us that it is not the problem of certain community. By showing police protecting a guy while he prays, my meme perfectly captures the main point of Dr. King’s remarks.

My meme serves as a helpful reminder that protecting civil rights is a shared duty requiring cooperation between ordinary people, law enforcement, and those making the decisions.  Societies can work towards a future in which civil rights are not only safeguarded but also valued, providing a just and inclusive society for everyone, by appreciating historical context and supporting the values of equality.

I think I deserve 10-13 points. Because my essay is well written. In my opinion the concept is vivid. I was also so passionate about Islamophobic actions around the world. So here I got a small opportunity to speak up and show my worldview. Why not 15? Because I’m not sure about my photo.  When someone says meme something funny comes to my mind, but my photo is not funny.

What Are the civil liberties? Civil liberties are the rights and freedom of citizens such as freedom of speech, religion etc.

The most I like about civil liberties is First amendment in constitution. Because of this amendment the government can’t establish official religion. So it helps us to avoid massive religion discrimination. This freedom known as establishment clause. Also the first amendment allows us to freely practice our religion. The Free Exercise Clause addresses the conflicts which may general laws might conflict with specific religious exercises. The Jenovah’s witnesses highlighted the difficulties to balance religious freedom with established laws. First government was stubborn about removing the laws that contradicts with religion freedom but later cases affirmed individuals’ right event if it was contradicting to certain laws.

This weak we learned about federalism. Basically federalism refers to division of powers and responsibilities into federal government and state government. Federalism is defined by the US Constitution, which describes specific powers granted to the federal government, powers reserved for the states, and powers that are shared. 10th amendment to the Constitution states that any powers not delegated to the federal government nor prohibited to the states are reserved for the states or the people.

In the late 1700 and early 1800 in the US was a constant conflicts because of the balance of power between states and the national government. Key events such as McCulloch v. Maryland, Gibbons v. Ogden and the judge decisions shaped these struggles.

Overall, this period marked the national government’s efforts to establish its role within the federal design, with the Supreme Court often resolving power struggles between states and the national government.

In this blog I’ll talk about the US constitution, or rather about the amendments. In total US constitution were changed 27 times. First 10 amendments were added as a respond to charges of anti-federalists. They wasn’t happy about that the constitution makes government too powerful but didn’t provide protection for rights of citizens.

James Madison took the lead in drafting nineteen potential changes to the Constitution. Madison submitted draft to congress and 10 amendments were accepted. These amendments known as bill of rights. As I understand Bill of rights were accepted to calm anti-federalists down and encourage their support of the new national government. Many of the first ten amendments were based on provisions of the English Bill of Rights and the Virginia Declaration of Rights. For example right to have a gun for protection, the right not to have to provide shelter and provision for soldiers in peacetime, the right to a trial by jury, and protection from excessive fines and from cruel and unusual punishment. All this amendments is taken from Bill of rights

According to my readings, USA was a colony of great Britain. Belief and attitudes influenced by John Locke became the reason of independence of US. John Locke was important character whose ideas emphasized natural rights to life, liberty, and property, colonists were also influenced by Magna Carta and the English bill of rights. With the English bill of rights and Locke’s philosophy the colonists’ view of individual rights and limited government power were shaped. The colonists believed in self-governance, a tradition that had roots in early colonial legislatures. And when that Britain threatened these beliefs, the American revolution started. It was the start of new nation with a government significantly limited in its power over the people.
