Polar Ice cap Melting and its Devastating affects
With the world’s creation, there have been many natural climate changes that affected the ice caps. With this, the ice caps have melted and frozen overtime, a natural process. But due to human intervention they have suddenly started to melt faster than we want them to, throwing the world into a slow turning time bomb. With our cars, hairsprays, and harsh chemicals that we put into the atmosphere we have caused our protective o-zone layer to de...

Is hip-hop dead? It sure sounds like it if you turn on the radio or tune –in to watch a video. It’s amazing to think that the music you hear today is a result of MC’s hard work from the 80’s and 90’s. Gone are meaningful lyrics and thought-provoking verses. They’ve been replaced with incessant chants about money, hoes and clothes.
In its place, we’re presented with examples of arrested development - the portrayal of grown men and women acting and dressing like teenagers. Balding insecure men...

Whether the issue is refusing prolonged life mechanically, assisting suicide, or active euthanasia, we eventually confront our socity's fears toward death itself. Above others, our culture breeds fear and dread of aging and dying. It is not easy for most of the western world to see death as an inevi...
- Environmental Activism
1. The large mainstream environmentalism groups started to compromise too much with regulatory agencies and bureaus, starting with the Glen Canyon Dam project. This began an estrangement with the mainstreams that culminated in the rise of more militant groups like Earth First! Glen Canyon represented what was fundamentally wrong with the country's conservation policies: arrogant government officials motivated by a quasireligious zeal to industrialize the natural ...

Private School Vouchers
Proposals to use private school vouchers, a marketplace strategy, as a mechanism by which to improve the general quality of public education have produced a lively debate. Frequently, that debate has degenerated into a disagreement about whether public schools are as good as private schools or whether a given private school is better than a certain neighborhood public school.
Other issues raised in these discussions include the appropriate use of public funds,...

The Minimum Wage and Why we Should Leave It
When was the last time a "value" meal from McDonald, let alone any other fast food chain, did not cost five dollars or more? When was the last time premium gas was under a dollar a gallon? It's hard to remember, isn't it? Wouldn't it be great if everything cost a nickel, like back in the good ol' days? According to the laws of economics, it's not logical for things to have gotten more expensive competition should drive prices down. Then w...

- Animal Rights
As Doctor Zola-Morgan stated in a speech to animal right activists, "I've seen the impact of the animal rights movement. I believe this is an attack on science of the worst kind. If we allow it to prevail it will take us back to the dark ages." Too much of the public has come to think of medical researchers as "tormenters rather than healers." The good is overlooked and the bad is exploited. Although many people think that animal research is morally wrong, animal research...
- The Cultural Narcissist
The Cultural Narcissist
"The new narcissist is haunted not by guilt but by anxiety. He seeks not to inflict his own certainties on others but to find a meaning in life. Liberated from the superstitions of the past, he doubts even the reality of his own existence. Superficially relaxed and tolerant, he finds little use for dogmas of racial and ethnic purity but at the same time forfeits the security of group loyalties and regards everyone as a rival for the favors conferred by a paternalistic st...
