Petition to Supreme Court of India, Maneka Gandhi, PM Narendra Modi
Mankind has come a long way from rubbing together two stones to start a fire, from discovering that logs are easier to roll than to pull along, to sending a space craft millions of kilometers away.
We humans, in our society, have developed laws to prevent one's greed from overruling sound judgment, to inculcate moral behavior and set up courts of authority, who shall implement laws, and penalize those who err.
Clearly then we must be a very advanced race, considering the little progress our fellow earth species have made. You would expect such a civilization to be rather 'civilized' then, where all live in harmony, unlike the cruel and barbaric not so advanced species.
You would be surprised.
It is the 21st century of human progress, and still, the life giver of the entire human species, the ones who propagate generation after generation, making this entire advancement possible are still hunted and hounded, for their entire lives.
It is one thing to take a life. It is alike for the sentient and the insensate.
It is another thing to slowly, painfully strangle and torture every bit of it away. More so, when done so with pleasure and glee. Clearly one who obtains such sadistic pleasure from the struggle and pain of others is not civilized.
The entire sexually reproducing animal species has two basic desires. The desire to eat, and the desire to mate.
While the right to eat is fundamental to the right to life, there can be no right to mate, without the consent of all the participating individuals.
So basic are these desires, it is not possible to reform, and completely remove the tendency to obtain them by immoral and wicked means.
Unfortunately, in their handling of such cases, the courts have proved that, as impeccable their understanding of the laws of the nation are, their understanding of basic human nature, is clearly lacking.
For in their pursuit of reforming rapists, they have given a ray of hope, of survival to this cancerous disease to the society. A chance for a life beyond the fact. A chance, which these perpetrators deny their victims.
In protecting the life of these clearly sadistic individuals, the courts are unwittingly endangering the hundreds of thousands of innocents who depend on them for protection.
It is high time the courts realise that their duty, is to protect the innocent and not the guilty. They must realise that only the ultimate fear of death, can scare these monsters away from preying on the weak and innocent for the ultimate pleasure of sexual gratification.
The more they protect the rapists, the more they are emboldened.
We, the people, demand that the courts whom we have empowered to protect us, fulfil their duty, and with unbending strictness, award exemplary punishment of the death penalty to ALL RAPISTS, irrespective of age and status.
Yes, a modern liberal society should do away with capital punishment. But clearly we are not that society, because every day, every hour, an innocent is under attack. Until the day we are rid of such cruel individuals, we need laws that are strict and courts who deal with them with iron fists. Read more
Many out-of-state Gators break the bank in order to receive an amazing education at the University of Florida. Part of what makes the quality of the education so superb are the in-person classes and communications between professors and students. As a rising senior with a major in psychology, most of my greatest learning experiences have come from in-person class demonstrations and stimulating, collaborative learning. Online classes simply do not deliver the same quality of education, interpersonal skills, or stimulating environments.
While we definitely understand that the Coronavirus and its unfortunate effects on the world are not at the fault of the University, we ask that the University understand the change in the economic situations of many families and the lower quality of online education. Students are no longer able to receive what they signed up for when choosing to attend UF. This being said, out of state tuition should no longer be at the lofty cost of 43,000 dollars a year. The cost of tuition for out-of-state online students is approximately 20,000 dollars. We ask that the cost of tuition for the year 2020-21 be lowered to 20,000, if not less, for all out-of-state students considering we are now forced to attend an online university. A UF credit for an out of state online student is approximately 500 dollars, whereas a UF credit for an out of state in person student is approximately 1000 dollars. There is no reason we should be paying the inflated in person price when the majority of students have been given no choice but to take online classes. Furthermore, the portion of normal tuition that is required for athletics, activity and services, health, and bus transportation is still being required! Why should we continue to pay for something we cannot receive?
In addition, we are requesting that tuition for in-state students be reduced temporarily during the Coronavirus outbreak in a similar manner, as many families and students are going through a difficult time financially and socially. While it is true that tuition is significantly lower for in-state students compared to out-of-state students, we believe that a reduction in the cost of attendance at the University of Florida should be inclusive of all students and blind to residency status or home of origin. Ultimately, we hope to see that this reduction in tuition will apply to all students, ensuring that the cost difference between live and online learning is the same for everyoneRead more
Swansea Bay, Gower, Mumbles and parks are now under serious threat of becoming overdeveloped into grey concrete symbols of everything that is not Swansea.
Its time now to let the powers that be know that you will not tolerate selling the jewel in Swansea’s crown to supplement its self destruction.
This is not politically motivated petition but one to let the powers making the decisions know that you care and want them to stop overdeveloping our iconic treasures before it’s too late.
Sign the petition if you are unhappy with the current plans to turn green spaces into unwanted developments and want a better Swansea that maintains the qualities that have been developed over centuries for us and future generations to enjoy.
Once it’s gone it’s gone forever !
