Speech Does Not Equate Violence
Emotional and Physical Harm The power of speech is indisputable. Words have the potential to soothe or distress, to uplift or deflate, to enlighten or confound. Indeed, the effect of speech can be profound and far-reaching, causing emotional turbulence and psychological stress.

Korean music has reached the mainstream media within the last few years, and with that, more and more things are surfacing, these things include how the idols are really treated, and yes, the double standard is becoming more obvious as the music gains more of a following from all over the world.

“Woke Capitalism” Doesn’t Work for America’s Poor
Once, the Left represented the fight for social justice, striving to dismantle classism and inequity. It was a symbol of unity for the oppressed, the proletariat, and the marginalized, pushing back against the bourgeoisie’s grip on society.
