Past politicians, legislation and political movements have changed the course of history in ways both big and small. Welcome to our blast to the past.

    What Do the Koch Brothers and the Super Rich Really Want – Our Lives

    Who are the Koch Brothers? What do they and their ilk want, and what drives them for more? It’s a question that perplexes me.

    My Jaw Dropping Day Reliving Spanish History and the Transition to Democracy

    My Jaw Dropping Day Reliving Spanish History and the Transition to Democracy

    A few days ago I got a text from a close family friend asking if I wanted to go on a tour of the Congreso de los Diputados. Of course I accepted, not thinking much of it. It wasn’t until I arrived that I realized what I had signed up for. We had been invited on a private tour of the Spanish government and parliament house! These buildings are only opened to the public once a year, and here we were getting our own tour!

    The Black Cowboys: Melanin Metamorphosis

    The Black Cowboys: Melanin Metamorphosis

    Early American Western Cowboys descended from a blend of Spaniards, Criollos, and Native Americans. The Wild West was wide open and people from all over were pouring in while the getting was good to stake new homes and fortunes. This was the initial mixing of the so called Melting Pot; Go West Young Man!

    Make America Great (Again?)

    Make America Great (Again?)

    A lot of my batch-mates and friends from the school time have moved to the USA in search for a better future—and it's a great step towards a rewarding life. However, whenever I have a conversation with almost any of those friends, I sense the hint of pride in their tone—almost obnoxious, narcissistic pride. It's a good move to move to a different country, but that does not mean that the people you left back in your home country, or the people who live in some other country are somehow beneath you. It is not healthy, quite frankly.

    The Real Dracula – A Saint in His Homeland

    The Real Dracula – A Saint in His Homeland

    If you ever happen to go to the resting place of Vlad III in Snagov, Romania, one must tread lightly. You definitely do not want to offend the saintly deference the sight and its occupant are given. Statues of this iconic medieval prince are in no short supply either. Almost 600 years later, and to the world over, old Vlad goes by another name that puts him in an entirely different light—Dracula.

    Authority and the Truth

    Authority and the Truth

    Truth is defined as a judgment or idea that is true or accepted as true. The two areas of knowledge examples I will be talking about are the history of immigration in the United States as well as the way women were subjugated in the name of mental illnesses during the 1800s-1900s, which falls under human science. Authority does not always tell the truth, yet people still believe their explanations and trust authoritative figures. This is explicitly shown by the history of immigration laws and the mistreatment of women within human science.
