Why America Matters

Gun control, restrictive abortion laws, national healthcare so on and so forth. The United States of America seems to dominate the way we talk, interact with and view politics.

Should abortion be legalised?

Why I Hate Ben Shapiro

"The facts don't lie", "the truth doesn't care about your feelings", "that just isn't reasonable". In a political atmosphere that is dominated by the cynicism of the Ben Shapiro, the piss-takers delights of Milo Yiannopoulos and dumb man's thinking man Jordan Peterson, this hyper-awareness of "reason" and "the straight facts" has encapsulated.
