Where to Spot Irony in the Attitudes of the Preachers of Human Rights

Every year, the global community celebrates December 10 as the International Human Rights Day and the week it falls on as Human Rights Week to mark the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN General Assembly in 1948. However, in the identities of the powers running the countries that observe it on the official level, and other countries who are vocal about human rights in general, I find

Why World Leaders Are Planning To #DitchTheDollar

The U.S. dollar is the world’s greatest reserve currency, with around 63% of global reserves held in it. It also enjoys a special position as the fiat currency – or a currency widely relied upon by businesspeople worldwide – and as the primary currency in which international bilateral trading is done, even when the U.S. is not a party in the said deal. All this has given the U.S. dollar, and hence the country it

Trump’s Ignorance Towards Hurricane Maria Only Made It Worse

On Sept. 20, 2017, the tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record made landfall as a Category 5 storm to the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, destroying approximately 80% of the island and leaving 100% of citizens powerless and in the wake of an utter disaster. The death toll, in Hurricane Maria’s aftermath, was officiated at an estimated 2,975, with some still unaccounted for. Water and food shortages ran rampant, hospitals were closed due to damage

How Natural Disaster Relief Fails Minorities

Does loss of life have a color? A certain bank account? A value based upon intelligence or access? Has our world reached a place wherein disaster relief and aid is just as polarizing as every other evidence of racial and socioeconomic divide? For the past week, the United States has effortlessly focused their time and energy in preparing the east coast for the impact of Hurricane Florence. Mandatory evacuations, taking effect in the Carolinas and

Salvaging The Trump Presidency, The ‘Pee-Pee’ Tape, Reopening The Clinton Investigation, And More: Comey Visits Colbert

James Comey paid a visit to the Ed Sullivan Theatre last night in order to promote his new book “A Higher Loyalty,” bringing the Late Show their third highest ratings yet, and allowing host Stephen Colbert to do what he does best: making the political maelstrom, hot mess that is our Current State of Affairs bearable, and, in a way not too dissimilar to the clever young mother who hides spinach in her kid’s brownies,

Fiscal Conservative, Social Liberal: A Modern Myth

Fiscal Conservative, Social Liberal. This phrase, often coupled with a moderate political stance, demonstrates an individual’s support for LGBTQ+ rights and the pro-choice movement, but also support for conservative fiscal policies, such as lower taxes, small government, privatization, free trade, and deregulation of the economy. Support for this viewpoint can be found in Republican senator Marco Rubio saying he “would go attend a gay marriage,” and Republican senator Ted Cruz voicing support for states choosing their own marijuana

The Future of Transgender Military Members is Uncertain

President Donald Trump is continuing his attempt to prevent transgender military members from serving. After federal courts thwarted his attempt at a ‘ban’ in July 2016, he’s rescinded his last policy to enact a new one. It will limit future recruits based on criteria that are developed through “extensive study by senior uniformed and civilian leaders, including combat veterans.” The criteria were released in a memo from the Pentagon on Friday, March 22. It detailed specifics that disqualify transgender

It’s hard to believe the degree of violence innocent people are witnessing every day. The Parkland shooting is only the most recent in a string of school shootings that have occurred in 2018. With 17 deaths, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has quickly surpassed Columbine to become the most devastating high school shooting and falls second only to Sandy Hook in terms of all-time school shootings. Teenagers should be writing term papers, studying for AP tests
