Mt. Everest is it worth the risk or not?
I think it's worth the risk because in the textbook, it states that you can bring along sherpas that basically show you how to climb Everest and help you as cooks and guides. Also, Only about half of Mt. Everest is actual climbing, while Everest is all about attitude, its counterpart K2 is all about climbing. The death rate at Everest is only 4/100 so if you climb now with all this new technology the risks might be even lower. Plus, you start at an enormous altitude of over 10,000 feet above sea level, and, everest’s vertical feet is 17,000 ft. Which makes it 1,000 vertical feet lower than Denali. In conclusion, Everest is really just the altitude and not about actual mountain height, so Everest is definitely worth the risk.
Globalization, is it making the world stronger or weaker?
I think globalization is making the world stronger because this way, many different countries are involved with making a product. A shoe for example, is manufactured in Asia, but sold in the US. All of the steps needed that the product goes through before selling, requires people, and more people needed means more jobs are needed. If a country has more jobs available to its citizens, that country's unemployment rate, and poverty will decrease, and its economy will grow.
What makes a good citizen?
A good citizen is a person who obeys the laws of his country, contributes to society and participates in public affairs with wisdom. A good citizen is someone who respects others and their property and their own responsibilities. A good citizen is helpful and considerate, (willing to put others first). A good citizen listens to the views of others and thinks about what they have to say. A good citizen wouldn't just yell FIRE! In a movie theatre even though they would be exercising the right for freedom of speech. They would not be doing the protect public safety responsibility which might cause them some social problems. In conclusion, rights and responsibilities need to not outweigh one another so the society can be stable.
