Education: Tips for Students
We should write like we talk. It will make it easier for readers to understand what we are trying to say. And if we can communicate our opinions clearly, we are more likely to have our opinion taken seriously.
Political parties have done a lot of damage to our society. Some people blame conservatives for everything. Some blame liberals. But this divides and conquers us, which is what the global elite wants.
Focus on the people in your life who say positive things. But don’t just dismiss negative feedback. If their motivation is sincere, they could be giving us good advice. We shouldn’t just be proud of ourselves for going our own way. We’re none of us perfect, so if someone warns us about bad behaviour, we should honestly consider it, examine it, and see if it’s relevant to us. If it is, we should try to do better. If it’s not, we should feel free to move on.

America: Hero or villain?
Many people think the US is a democracy. But it’s a constitutional republic, because the Founding Fathers were afraid that the majority in a democracy could be tyrants against the minority. But is America a tyrant when it acts as the world’s policeman? Or is it the justified global leader?
There are circumstances where we need big pharmaceutical companies and the benefits of the drugs they offer. If we have a broken ankle, no natural remedy is going to take care of that. But we should also realize they are in a business, for profit. But turmeric, for example, is known as Nature’s ibuprofen. No chemicals added!
