Violence, violence, everywhere, all the guns did shoot,

Violence, violence, everywhere, here peace is moot.

Violence, violence, everywhere, death is in the news,

Violence, violence, everywhere, it reached a million views.

Violence, violence, everywhere, people fight on race,

Violence, violence, everywhere, it is on such a fast pace.

Violence, violence, everywhere, people are scared of a war,

Violence, violence, everywhere, they talk about it like it didn't happen before.

Violence, violence, everywhere, seen in the open ground,

Violence, violence, everywhere, even if it is home bound.

Violence, violence, everywhere, where it is physical,mental or verbal,

Violence, violence, everywhere, no treatment be it drugs or herbal.

Violence, violence, everywhere, can't end,

Violence, violence, everywhere, unless there is a peaceful blend.

Violence, violence, everywhere, the puppeteer we can't see,

Violence, violence, everywhere, let us pray to god in a silent plea.

Could Aung San Suu Kyi have done more to prevent the persecution? How important was the hate speech on Facebook? How can the situation be resolved? Don't miss this informative and troubling conversation.

And, with an anti-science administration in the White House today, what are the contentious issues?

Internet Trolls in the U.S. and Mexico, with Saiph Savage

Professor Saiph Savage is an activist scholar and technology expert who is using large-scale data to study the sophisticated ways in which trolls target certain groups and bombard them with misinformation--for example U.S. Latinos were targeted in the 2018 midterm elections as were Mexicans in their 2018 presidential election.
