    Guns will stop the U.S government? Give me a break

    ‘In modern times Americans presume that Newton’s third law is still at play. With equal force, comes an equal reaction. If these weapons really are to protect citizens from the government, then by what possible means could they be used to push back with equal force the almighty power of state and federal government. The United States boasts some of the finest weapons and equipment and manpower in the world. How could Americans resist an almighty slaughter, as the provision seems to suggest, from a force of that strength without the population being as equally well-resourced?’ (Read More)

    Is Batfleck the hero for the Trump generation?

    ‘Consider the evidence. Ben Affleck has an effortless malaise and disinterest that transforms an even darker incarnation of Batman into a casual killer. Superman is so singularly dull that the character did more dead. Wonder Woman tolerates a gang of misfit thugs who carelessly discuss each other’s secret identity. Worse still, all of them make sport out of wanton destruction and general chaos.’ (Read More)

    The Legacy of the Genocide Convention: Forgotten Groups

    “Hitler himself targeted groups not mentioned in the Convention.  He authorised that every ‘incurably sick’ German be granted a merciful death and 70,000 Germans with hereditary diseases were exterminated.  He targeted homosexuals, communists, liberals, trade unionists, and other oppositionists and also at one point speculated that he might exterminate the intellectual classes” (Read More)

    Review | Star Trek: Discovery

    “What’s so frustrating about Discovery is it’s the show Enterprise should have been, but it doesn’t even know it. The acting is fine, the budget is enormous and the spectacle is excellent. But what is it? It might have done away with most of the affectations of Trek, but that’s not the issue. It’s criminally negligent of that beautiful, insatiable quality that makes the other shows so watchable: hope.” (Read More)

If Nigel Farage is calling for a second referendum, it’s time for a rethink

In the News

‘What even the most devout Brexiteer must admit is that had there been a Remain victory, they would have demanded a consultation on any renegotiated deal for Britain’s EU membership. There would unquestionably be hell to pay had a government bulldozed proposals through that were radically different or had far-reaching implications for original promises. ‘ (Read More)

How a change in the curriculum could help put an end to ‘small island syndrome’.

Politics & Society

“It has been part of every post-war British Prime Minster’s rhetoric to emphasize what a great and powerful country the United Kingdom is. The perceived size and stature of our island contributed to the misconstrued argument of the Leave campaign in the Brexit referendum, helping to persuade millions of the electorate that Britain would prosper without the European Union.” (Read More)

Is it fair to brand the U.S Constitution ‘anti-democratic’?

Ideas & Discussion

“Since that ‘Miracle of Philadelphia’, the US Constitution has, over the years,  proven to possess the features that encourage democracy. In order to protect the right to life, liberty, and property from the “grips of human depravity” the framers established a system of checks and balances.
