What’s Happening in ETHIOPIA?

Ethiopia is starving. It’s difficult to imagine anything that could make a famine ‘worse’. However, the fact that this famine was man-made and avoidable only exacerbates the dire situation of millions of Ethiopians. Ethiopia is located within Africa and shares borders with Eritrea (who we will come to shortly) and Djibouti, Somalia, Kenya, and Sudan.…

Australia’s Middle Power Failure

Australia has been significantly harmed by its inability to formulate an independent foreign policy and, there are numerous advantages that Australia is failing to capitalise upon due to its foreign policy relying heavily on historical alliances. But, before I continue, what does it mean to be a middle power? A middle power refers to a…

The Trial of Trump

Written by Guest Author: Oliver Pope 11th February 2021 It has been over three weeks since Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Since this time, former President Trump has mostly fallen under the radar - remaining banished from the mainstream social and news media. However, all that is…

A Normal Inauguration?

Surely not! After everything that has occurred since the election, a ‘normal’ inauguration seemed incredibly unlikely. However, the inauguration ceremony was mostly peaceful and Joe Biden’s first day as President demonstrated that he’s here to make changes, not just revel in his newfound power. Joe Biden’s inauguration as the 46th President of the United States…

2 Million

When numbers get higher and higher, they become more and more meaningless and incomprehensible. The numbers lose value, and the shock element that might have been present at the start begins to fade away. The difference between 2 million and 1 million seems oddly small. Or maybe that’s just me? It’s hard for my brain…

Trump Impeached…Again

2020 American Election Day Recap

It was a crazy day. One that perfectly represented how this year has felt so far. There were ups, downs, periods of strange stability, and then a return to chaos again. Now, I am not calling this election yet. It is still incredibly close. There are still votes to be counted in Nevada, Arizona, Georgia,…

The Countdown to the 2020 American Election

It’s almost time. Tomorrow, America will decide who will lead their nation into the future. Will it be Donald Trump or Joe Biden? This election campaign has been crazy. Black Lives Matter riots. Tax Debates. Immense Social Media Advertising. And all of this within a global pandemic. The debates between Trump and Biden showcased a…

Why I Love Quarantine

COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon. This horrific virus has destroyed lives, workplaces and countries. There isn’t much hope in our world currently, but although the short-term future looks bleak, there is still a bright long-term future that we can look forward to. However, for now, many countries are re-introducing lockdowns as they suffer…

The Value of the Law

There are too many laws! Laws are too controlling on our lives! I wish we could just live how we want to… These thoughts and opinions on our legal system are incredibly common in our society. People want to live freely, and for many, the legal system plays no role in their life other than…
