    Immigration Myths

    Immigration Myths

    Because of the migration of diverse peoples, the U.S. has become a great and powerful country. Today, immigration is not an easy process in the U.S. Historically, our ancestors’ main concern was getting over to this country. Once they landed, they landed.

    What's The Government Really Up To?

    What's The Government Really Up To?

    Mr. George Floyd’s death was definitely a tragic death. This world has had a right to react to it, but I do not believe they have reacted the proper way. I feel like this has come so much further than justice for Mr. Floyd. Their’s peaceful protests, riots, looting, and burning down companies. Even burning down a business of an innocent man, just because they thought the business was owned by a white man. The business was actually owned by a black man that started off in the ghetto and man something of himself. This is more than justice for Mr. Floyd, I believe this is more than Black lives matter protests now. I feel like people are terrified of the fact that we do indeed have some dirty cops in our law enforcement all over the world, but we always have. I am not against law enforcement one bit, I support them and I have trust in them.

    Ordinary people have huge power, they just can’t be asked. Engage and be listened to.

    Ordinary people have huge power, they just can’t be asked. Engage and be listened to.

    Isabel Hardman’s book, ‘Why we get the wrong politicians’, said a lot of things to me about politics and how it is inaccessible to most people to which I agreed with for the most part, but my major takeaway was the astonishing statistic on who actually elects your MP and therefore, makes laws and governs the country.

    When Fiction Inspires Reality

    When Fiction Inspires Reality

    Needless to say, we live in dark times. 2020, the cursed year, has shown us how fragile our everyday lives can be. Who would've thought that billions of people all across the globe were going to be confined for months in an era where liberty was taken for granted in wealthy countries? Who would've believed that the USA was going to crumble under anarchy for a video showing racist police brutality? Worst of all, who would've guessed that the supposed world's strongest powerhouse was going to be led by a madman? In fact, all of the above has been displayed for years right before our eyes through art and entertainment. But when fiction becomes our reality, we find ourselves back against the wall. No writer or director can decide the outcome of the chaotic plot in which we are the actors. We have the imagination to create infinite intrigues and the cleverness to culminate them into good endings, but when the chips are down in reality, when we have to rethink the codes, the systems and the social norms, things get out of hand fast and finding solutions to the numerous crises that we're facing is far more challenging than in books, video games and movies.

    How Much is a Child? - P2

    Straightforwardly enough, some might find their ill-favoured appearances or dullness, which have all too often dogged them, rather unbearably horribly miserable.

    "Free Speech" doesn't mean "Free from Consequences"

    "Free Speech" doesn't mean "Free from Consequences"

    With all the change and stress our country is going through, We have seen an increased amount of people refusing to follow rules based on being "A Free Country". On a similar note, I have noticed an increase of people saying whatever crosses their minds, claiming protection under "Free Speech". Is this "Freedom" truly free? I am here to inform you that while you can say whatever you want, you can still get in trouble for it.

    She’s the youngest of notorious former media mogul Robert Maxwell’s five children and the alleged procuror of young girls for Jeffrey Epstein… and, strangely, hide nor hair has been seen of her since his mysterious death in a New York prison cell in August last year, while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
