    The Journey to Extremism

    In recent months, political extremism has become more and more apparent in America. Due in part to the rise of internet-accessibility and screentime, due to the pandemic. I read Luke Munn's research article describing an individual's path to extremism...

    • Lilly, I find your article very important in these times. With extremism on the high, knowing the signs of it and how to avoid it is crucial.
      If you were to perhaps include some stories on its dangers, it would add a level of narrative that would be real engaging for all those who read it.

    • I would never have expected anti-Semitism to be such a prevailing issue in the modern day. But I suppose that comes from the perspective of an individual who was educated about the holocaust from a fairly young age, as a core part of historical curriculum. It is interesting to see how effective these education initiatives are, and I hope they can be implemented on a wider scale in the near future.

    • I thought this was really interesting! I think we have all noticed how COVID-19 has affected people working, and it is interesting to see the way my parents are feeling about working from home is similar to many others. COVID-19 will change the way the workplace functions and I agree that this might become the new normal.

    • Lilly,
      I thought the way you addressed the reality of true situation we’re in as a country in the midst of a pandemic was clear and straightforward, and also just a true statement that a lot of people probably don’t want to hear. I thought it was very interesting that you explained the importance of adaptability and acceptance, versus simply waiting around for things to go back to the way they were. I agree that whether than waiting around for something that may not happen for a long time, or may not happen at all, it’s better to work with what we have to continue with our lives.
