Racism

 

I would love to see racial inequality diminish in the next century. If racial inequality disappeared forever the world would be such a better place to live in. There would be a chance for people to finally be treated equally; there won’t be any resentment towards the government from specified ethnic groups   . Today’s society especially in America has had a lot of tension at times violent due to racial inequality which is another reason why I would love to see racial inequality…

Anti-Materialist Thoughts of a Superfluous Man

D.M.L. Nguyen

Yale University

Undergraduate, class of 2016

I shall begin my discourse on what can potentially improve the state of the world at the very beginning, our ancestors. The natural man, at the onset of his existence, is an animal. By no means an ordinary animal, but an animal nevertheless. The natural man lived by instinct, his needs and behaviors indistinguishable from the animals which he hunts and cohabits with. In stages, man began…

I was recently confronted by the terrifying but not completely unexpected realization that roughly half of my parents’ combined income is consumed by my secondary education. In a household of four children, that’s a significant investment. My parents pronounced the fact with genuine reluctance and fake surprise, as if trying to spare me the urgency of…

A while back, reflecting on my Greek heritage, I thought about the sociopolitical zeitgeist of modern Greeks. In a country with roughly 40 political parties (ranging from the more democratic to communists, anarchists, and fascists) there is obviously not much is consensus.

But most Greeks agree on one thing: they hate the Turks.

Years ago, the Ottoman Empire (the precursor state of modern…

Imagining A Better Future

How can we make the world a better place in the next 100 years? The question is daunting to say the least. Medics may say to increase worldwide hospital care. Educators may say to encourage more rigorous schooling. Activists may say to promote equality among all people. Minorities may say to eliminate stereotypes from the population. Some may say to disallow the use of weapons,…

The End of the U.S.-Taliban Talks? with Jonathan Cristol

Despite progress over the last year, Donald Trump effectively ended the latest round of U.S.-Taliban negotiations with a tweet earlier this month. Will talks continue in a more understated way?
