    The World is Ending

    • Hey maxwell,

      I really liked your post. I liked how you connected your childhood past to connect with what is happening in the world. The world is being destroyed by humans and eventually the Earth will not be livable.

    • Hey max, I myself was a gullible kid that believed in the 2012 apocalypse once, but now we all have to realize that old doomsday predictions were fake. Ancient ideas about an end of times were based on myths and legends, with no way to verify them. Today however, we place all of our faith in science. As you correctly pointed out, science is making its own doomsday prediction, and those guardian articles are pretty telling about where we are as a planet. If nothing is done the entire ecosystem will collapse from the bottom up.
      However, if you believe that every human is responsible for this, you might still be just as gullible as before… “Humans” aren’t polluting the ocean, “Humans” aren’t destroying the climate, and “Humans” cant be held accountable. The truth is (as pointed out by your own source, The Guardian) is much more simple. https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2017/jul/10/100-fossil-fuel-companies-investors-responsible-71-global-emissions-cdp-study-climate-change I would recommend that you read this very interesting article. It shows how the real perpetrators are massive companies, and if someone did something about them, we can potentially stop this new doomsday. Don’t blame every human, blame the 100 richest humans on earth, because you and I aren’t as guilty as them.

  • Hello Zya. I agree with much of what you said, but I think that it would be interesting for you to know that size-ism is actually not targeted at female athletes. Male athletes struggle with body positivity just as much as female athletes. Your comment about the 250 ibs man being celebrated can be true on the football field, but the 125 ibs kid…Read More

  • Sam, I completely agree with you. People think that because America has problems it can’t be the greatest country. This video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMqcLUqYqrs is supposed to show that America is worse than all these other countries in all these separate fields and therefore cannot be the greatest country. The thing is, we can never be…Read More

    • Hey max, I really liked you take on gun control, having written my post on gun control a couple weeks ago. How you went into deeper explanation of gun control was most interesting because to many people do not understand gun control completely. I found an article that goes into more about gun control that you might find interesting, https://study.com/academy/lesson/what-is-gun-control-facts-laws-pros-cons.html

    • Hi Max, your post is really good.
      I think the gun control is a hard thing. The company who sell guns have lots of power. They can’t let you change it easily. The best way to do it is still need to do more on the regulation. Also American should be more strict on gun control, just like Japan. Every gun and bullet need to be record.

  • Max commented on the post, Guns Guns Guns!!!

    With all due respect Samuel, who plans on banning all guns? This is a common misconception. The word control does not mean abolish. Some people want to ban all guns, but that is a select few. Most liberal affiliated people just want gun control that they feel can create a better handle on the gun epidemic created in our society. If you can site a…Read More
