Being Human in a Less Humane World
It’s really, really hard to be human, much harder than we give ourselves credit for. It is particularly hard to be alive on earth today.Krow Fischer
What Is Gerrymandering?
Gerrymandering. For many people, no word is as synonymous with "legal election rigging" as the word "gerrymander," or its present tense form, "gerrymandering." Even saying that word in political discussions can get some people up in arms.Cato Conroy
No Peace! Where's Our Government?
From Thatcher (conservative) to Blair (Labour) to brown (labour) to Cameron (conservative) joint with Clegg (liberal Democratics) to now May (conservative), what have all five people got on their hands? (Not sure about Clegg).
Government Politics in the UK
Good day! Welcome to my everyday post off June 2017 blog posts. I thought I might as well start the day with politics today as my government at the moment are pretty stupid, let alone shocking, believe me they are!
On Our Political and Social Incoherence
I have always opposed US intervention in the Middle East, finding it not only immoral but counterproductive. It obviously makes it probable that United States citizens, both at home and abroad, will be targeted in retaliatory attacks. Remember 9/11 but remember it with introspection and logic rather than emotional reaction. Why did it occur? How? Who were the perpetrators? Where did they come from? Who are their friends in the United States? All not only interesting questions but all too relevant.Guillermo Calvo
Theresa May's Father
Theresa May's Father, Reverend Hubert Brasier, was born on 20th August 1917 at 61 Clonmore Street, Wandsworth, London. Like many people a century ago, his was a home birth. Hubert’s father, Tom Brasier, was a military man. He had served as a sergeant in the King's Royal Rifles, but was a clerk by the time Hubert was born. Hubert's mother's maiden name was Amy Margaret Patterson and they had married 8 years prior in Hampshire. Amy and Tom’s first son, James David Brasier, had died within a year of his birth in 1911 in Uttaranchal, India, where Tom Brasier had been deployed whilst in service. Two years later, in 1919, Hubert was joined by his younger sister and only other sibling Jean Robina Brasier.Johnny Vedmore
Surviving the Realization that Your Parents are Sabotaging You
My parents were what I believe to be, relatively young, when they had me. I was their first born and of course, there's going to be mistakes - I don't think there's any parent that exists who is perfect.Teagan O'Toole
The Real Revolution
What is a revolution? This word is used by many throughout the world daily, especially the United States. We hear the words “Political Revolution”, we hear the words “leader of the revolution”, we hear the words “I am part of the revolution”. What does that mean? What is a “revolution”? And more importantly what is The Revolution? Is it the destruction of the established government? Is it the change of the economic structure of the government? Is it a violent uprising? Or is it a peaceful movement? In this article I will explain to you what a revolution is, what The Revolution is, and how Students & Youth for a New America is at the very mantle of this revolution.
Dear Mr. President,
I don't really know where to start. I knew that things were going to change when I heard that you had been voted into the White House, but I didn't realize how drastic that change would be.
Contempt; An Election of Fear and Treason
This is not a conspiracy theory, the following is provable beyond any reasonable doubt, it is a collection of facts, actions, counter actions and laws/legislations.James anderson
Dear President Trump
Dear President Trump, Hello. You do not know me. And despite all the coverage on you in the media, I do not know you. I only know what I think of you, what I have been allowed to see. And let me just say, I am not exactly pleased with what I have seen. In my eyes, you perpetrate Islamophobia, misogyny, racism, and hypocrisy among a variety of other errors. It makes it exceedingly difficult to trust you in a position of power, to trust you to make decisions that are in the best interest for our nation.J.C. Marie
There's Something About Theresa
I am strongly of the opinion that both Labour and the Conservatives are just as bad as one another, hence, in September 2016, in the wake of the EU referendum, I joined the Liberal Democrats.Makenzie Ferrier
