    • Great job with writing this piece! GMO’s are a popular subject today and will play a key role in our future. Right now, due to the lack of scientific studies, laws and regulations seem to vary country to country like you said but I’m sure it may be subject to change. Once GMO’s have more research backing them up, I’m sure more and more people will be convinced and we can make some big effects on world hunger.

    • Ravi,
      I have read a little bit about GMO’s, but I still don’t really know much about them. I think that this is a big problem, which is why I am glad that you are covering this topic. I found a website that talks about the pros and the cons of GMOs, https://www.newportnaturalhealth.com/2013/07/gmos-the-pros-cons-of-genetically-modified-food/. I am also glad that you talked about consumer protection because it is good to know that there is a system telling people what is safe and not. Thank you for writing and I hope to read more from you in a bit.

    • I think the agricultural industry should halt the usage of creating GMO’s in flora for all the risks and cons it creates. Cons like helping bugs build immunity to pesticides faster, consumption creating health problems, and environmental problems GMO’s create.

    • Hi Ravi,
      I think this topic really interesting, because with the technology we have, we have the power to do a lot. Especially with our food. There is an old tv show, called Gilligans island that explores this in a funny. Five people are stranded on an island and one day radioactive food washes ashore and it basically gives them super powers. Though this is just satire, I think it poses a good point. Where will GMO’s go in the future and how they will actually be able to effect us, seeing as how we’ve already been working with GMO’s for a awhile. Personally I don’t know if I like the idea of furthering our work on GMO’s, here is an article that you may want to look at.

    • Hello Ravi,

      This is a really touchy topic, with the creation of new ways to alter the very genes that all life is based on. But one key thing that many people opposed the GMOs often leave out is that we, humans, have been genetically modifying organisms for our own benefit for our entire existence. For example the modern dog and corn are all result of careful artificial selection over thousands of years. If you think about it in this context, modern GMOs just simply had the gene altering process sped up by thousand-fold. In the future with climate and overpopulation GMOs will provide the world with necessary food to avoid a world wide starvation crisis of biblical proportions.

    • Ravi,
      I do agree also that safe spaces should be implemented but I wondered, what if those people were bullied by people and those bullies saw said person enter a safe space would that make the stress and torment they are going under increase if they end up bullying them more?

    • Ravi,

      What a great idea! I’ve never thought about creating a space safe where people can easily discuss touchy subjects in college. This is especially important because college can be a frightening place. Students are put into a new environment with people they have never met, and they are unaware of their surroundings, so having a place where students feel safe and comfortable to be themselves would be a great aspect on any campus. The article, 11 Tips For Broaching Difficult Subjects (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/gretchen-rubin/11-tips-for-broaching-dif_b_107748.html) is something I think you should take a look at because it is something the students in the safe space would have to consider when opening up about subjects they are sensitive to. Thank you so much for sharing! You should definitely push to create a safe space like the one you described in this post at the college you are going to attend!

    • This is a really good idea I like it, I don’t think there is enough time or space to discuss uncomfortable topics in today’s world.

    • I think it’s interesting that you say sex “should be meaningful and precious.” What makes you say so? A counterargument could clearly be that it makes people happy to do as they please with their personal lives. Could you explore the evidence more as to why it’s wrong? Also, I think you need to more clearly define why you are calling present-day America a “dystopian society.”

    • Ravi,
      Are you saying that our society is dystonian? This a a little unclear. Also I do not think that education is taking a backseat in today’s society. If anything education is more important today than it has ever been. It would be great if you could explain a little more about what makes you think this.

      Claire.

    • Hey Ravi,
      I am a fan of pre-nups. In your essay, you bring up the point that prenups are considered rude in today’s society. But why should it be rude to protect yourself? Almost half of American marriages end in divorce. Part of the problem may be that people believe that they will always be in love. There is an illogical part to love that makes you totally trust the other person. Don’t get me wrong, this is part of what makes love so special, but it can also make people blind. Do you feel everyone would be better off if prenups were required as a part of marriage? Thank you for your essay!

    • Ravi,
      I agree that talking to your partner about having a prenup is a good idea. In our day and age most people end up getting divorced and many times there are problems based on property rights. I think prenups help others to not have a problem once they get divorced. It leaves the couple with a clean slate, and everything they intended to have. Below is a link that says why you shouldn’t have a prenup and it contrasts all these ideas.
