politics

Politics does not dictate our collective cultural mindset as much as it simply reflects it; We've got to look in the mirror sometimes, and we've got one.

    What Has Trudeau Done so Far?

    What Has Trudeau Done so Far?

    Our last election, Justin Trudeau had been elected as prime minister for Canada. I was curious how the Trudeau government has changed Canada, because I think it can help people make up their minds for who to vote for. I am hoping this helps people in the long run. Once again, we are to put our votes together to vote for another party that has more promises, but what has Trudeau accomplished since he was in power?

    Wait, Let's Rethink This

    Wait, Let's Rethink This

    If you live in Canada, you probably know that in less than a week, we will be heading back to the polls, and if you're from out of the country, then, Ayo! Suprise, Canada has another election that you may or may not have heard of. I think it's always an interesting idea to take a step back, and try to explain the election from the point of view of one outsider telling another outsider about the election, similarly to me talking about American or British politics to one of my friends, so I'll attempt to do the same thing here.

    My Non-Profit Idea

    My Non-Profit Idea

    My non-profit is supposed to help disabled people get a job. It also would be a way for other non-profits to print newsletters since we’d have the resources available to be able to do so. Positive news for free is lacking. So in which case, we need to create resources that print good things done by good people, as an antidote to all the hatred out there. Good is hard to come by these days, in particular the greater good. I had family once tell me not to be friends with disabled people, when excuse me, I’m trying to rid myself of my own paranoia about myself, because as it turns out, I do not qualify for a discounted bus fare. Sometimes the world keeps getting darker, because the news is all about people wronging each other, doing wrong, hurting people, and often is made of stories about conflict resulting in tragedy. Our world is forced to deal with a darkness that has descended upon us because of the leaders we elected into office that do not deserve to be there. Not everybody is going to be happy about the way things are.

    An Open Letter: Young Conservatives Have Had Enough of This Bullsh*t

    An Open Letter: Young Conservatives Have Had Enough of This Bullsh*t

    With the recent announcement of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's impeachment proceedings into the Trump presidency, I was inspired to just jot down my thoughts. Rarely ever do I share politics online, because I've seen what people can do, and how they can treat *gasp* CONSERVATIVES! To be fair, I'm a registered independent, but I do lean more conservatively these days.

    How Can We Look up to MPs Now?

    How Can We Look up to MPs Now?

    And breathe... Westminster has prorogued and has been suspended from sitting for five weeks. Or can we relax? Parliament, deeply divided on everything Brexit and beyond, are still swinging handbags on the radio, the TV, the media and in and out of court rooms this last week.

    Liberal Democracy

    Liberal Democracy

    There is a slogan of the American Civil Liberties Union: "Dissent is Democratic." I find myself in awe of this quote. In the United States, dissent is supposed to mean something; it is important. Americans think that they have a voice that acts in their interest. Of course they do. We live in a liberal democracy. Of course, nobody thinks about what exactly that means. What is a liberal democracy?

    War On Drugs: Why We Need a Better Solution

    War On Drugs: Why We Need a Better Solution

    When you think of someone who takes drugs—a drug addict—what springs to mind? From my experience, people will offer a variety of replies. Usually, they describe how they perceive how people look, often saying things like dirty, homeless, rude, violent, problems. Then the description will move on to the crime and violence associated with drugs. The effects of the drug world impact all the communities we live in, but what most people don't realise is that it doesn't have to be this way.

    How I Want to Serve My City Hall

    How I Want to Serve My City Hall

    I’ve been a Parliamentarian before in student government. I’d love to be one again if I do De Anza student government. At any rate, I’m stuck in San Jose for a while longer until I can cope with crowds by myself, and I’m getting my A.A. in film and television in the process, because what I really want is to move to Los Angeles to work as a producer or something with the film industry while getting my MFA in creative writing. City Hall may have plenty of public service opportunities if we take a look at the website. I’m looking at the website just to see what’s happening.
