Children in today’s America deserve to realize a debt free adulthood straight out of high school. And should be rewarded for their hard work in high school with another chance at a free degree. We have been sending the wrong message by not providing our children with free education. We begin a train of thought that is tough to counteract. How do we justify providing 12 years of schooling but then make someone pay for the following 4 years?
The choice should be yours to use or not use drugs as you want. Exploitation of people’s right to choose will no longer be considered an option. Caging Americans with antiquated laws for petty drug offenses is inferior policy. Exorbitant corporate profit gained from imprisoning human beings is wrong. Our entire thought process towards this systemic issue must change.
Denying and ignoring environmental calamities caused by global warming will not make them go away. How can we expect our friends and neighbors to understand climate change when mainstream media refuses to acknowledge obvious data? How long do we continue letting our precious water be polluted for the sake of extra profit? How much are we willing to give up for less carbon footprint?
Overt white nationalism lacks all basic purpose in a diverse society. Shady discussion points designed by mainstream media will not be the dialogue that defines us. As we dig in our heels for more ‘Orange Herring' propaganda, we must look to our peers, family, and neighbors.
If we are careless, we may find ourselves in a land of squalid poverty. If we are careful, we may just manage to rid ourselves of the drudgery of repetitive work. Automation across all sectors of manufacturing and service industries will continue to claim traditionally human jobs.
The prison industrial complex is a modern-day representation of concentration camps. The parallel drawn is all too clear. We have let the government dictate how the imprisoned will be treated in our society. With over two and a half million people behind bars, we are the most efficient nation at locking up our own people.
