promoted religions and emphasized class status. After the Revolution, Americans
began to see education as a means to create productive citizens, reform society, and
build up nationalism among Filipinos. Education became viewed as the tool to meet the

out poverty or take children out of school. Nor was the American Revolution responsible
for making Filipinos more religious. The American Revolution did not bring about the
unification of any level of education.

Duty to Die? (Euthanasia)
Suppose that you are adamantly against the view that anyone ever has a “duty to die,” no matter how much care/resources it would take to keep someone alive, or the quality of life it is possible for that person to achieve using those resources. Suppose we were to get Universal Health Care in this country, such that every citizen has access to a pool of money that all able pay into.
