“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” –Albert Einstein I am a committed humanist, so I obviously support some kind of intervention in Syria. However, I do not think the United States should act alone. I believe that doing […]
The term “troll” is so new that it often gets misused, and it gets used so frequently that people sometimes dismiss it unfairly. It’s not just internet lingo to throw at someone because you don’t like or agree with them, and it’s not something to dismiss simply because someone used the term. It has real […]
One of the greatest strengths of the Internet is also one of its greatest weaknesses: anonymity. It emboldens people to speak out when they normally wouldn’t, but it also empowers people to speak out when they probably shouldn’t.
