Reactional thoughts on a skewered education system

So so much is wrong with this mentality around the SAT and the ACT. The only reason universities have used it as a criteria for applications is because there’s a lack of coherent education policy in the country. Yes, it’s true; no high school is created equal compared to other high schools. One town and…

Treatise on the world – post quarantine.

We all woke up from a daze. But not the governments. They think they did a good job. They did not. Déconfinement. Comment? People out in the streets without masks. Majority. People listening to the doctors’ recommendations. A stark minority. We are once again sheep. We have always been sheep. And there are two types…

reactional thoughts to thoughts on the racial contract

“But Barnhill’s leniency is selective—as The Appeal’s Josie Duffy Rice notes, Barnhill attempted to prosecute Olivia Pearson, a black woman, for helping another black voter use an electronic voting machine. A crime does not occur when white men stalk and kill a black stranger. A crime does occur when black people vote.” This is the…

a rant on the silence.

Recently my father explained the Lebanese revolution to a New Yorker. Her answer: “So why aren’t we protesting?” My father found it hilarious and typically New York.

Excuse the odd heated language here. It needs to be said sometimes in today’s age. We need to vent about what is happening. We need to rant against the stupid words spoken aloud.

So why, why indeed, are we not protesting?

Trump and the Diplomacy Catastrophe

We originally wanted to discuss the Mueller investigation but that was months ago and we never sat down to write properly about it. So now another circus arrived and we’re interested to see how it plays out. Believe us when we say that no one hates Trump more than the intelligence community. It is interesting,…

The Art of Summer (or how to procrastinate)

We’re a little worn out. Mostly because I have a few ideas I want to work on but I’ve had no energy these past weeks to fully develop them. It was summer and, like everyone else probably, I wanted to rather soak in the sun and music than research and writing. So to show you…

To the Elderly: WE will NOT toast to you.

Here’s the thing: there will always be an older generation to scold us, a younger generation to look up to us in awe and shock. But, even to the most moderate or conservative of us: don’t you think enough is enough?

A Kavanaugh of Authority?

Political tensions spread out from Europe to Asia passing by tribal mindsets and blood thirst for, at most, 10 different manners of waging war, authority is indeed a fickle concept. Whether it is arrogance or a blatant disrespect for authority, it is ruining the very principle of governance. Governments have corrupted regimes, the law is…

A Penchant for Abuse

The big man with the guns now has the power. Enough is enough.  A friend of mine recently expressed his complete shock when the US declared it was getting out of the UN Human Rights Council. I then asked him what he thought of the current administration but he didn’t answer, choosing either to ignore…
