    Annabella commented on the post, Teen Vaping

    We can all agree that vaping is worsening teens health across the country. The problem isn’t the flavors, supposedly targeted towards teens, the issue is with how easily accessible they have become and how new they are. In the past decade vaping has become more and more common for young people and it seems to only be growing. As of now, there…Read More

    • Great piece of writing! I completely agree with your analysis of individualism in our society.

    • I would not say the big business is based on individualism, more based on how we don’t have any regulation on the Monopolies and sizes of the companies that the Billionaires own.

    • I agree that America’s obsession with individualism is a large part of why the American experiment is failing. There is too much focus on being different that people can not be content with themself socially, economically, or mentally.

    • Dear Annabella

      I am impressed by your post Individualism as an American Value because of the fact that people in today’s day and age is people become NPCs(A non-player character or non-playable character is any character in a game that is not controlled by a player.) where they are no longer able to decide for them self and listen to them. Another thing is sheep people become sheep because they fear being called and would rather huddle up and sit behind others or listen to them.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ” Liberty, equality, and equal opportunity for all are at the core of our values as Americans. None of them misrepresent what our country believes in, but they are very baseline ideas. “Freedom” is a very top layer value in my opinion, and yes, our country gives us certain freedoms to ensure our liberty but I would argue that one of, if not the most important American values is individualism.” so I found this paragraph very important because of how you opened it with America. yes, America does give us some freedoms yet they do restrict a lot of other things we can do. Yet something that has always been important to Americans has to be the idealism of being different and having your own ideas.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoyed reading your post and find it very interesting in the topics and situations you mentioned. as well as how I feel we have some common interest in our own rights.

  • I’m curious, what makes anime such an important part of your life? Why does it mean so much to you?
    My fave anime is kakeguri! I love it too;)
