All around the globe, there are ruler, presidents, and kings that are trying to rule their territory, and possibly even the whole world. But is their purpose and goal is to follow the constitutional principles of democratic government? Authoritarianism was a scary figure in the past, especially during the Holocaust. Is Trump heading the same way for authoritarianism? Let's first see what history was like and how it reflects our world today.
Do you think the government is doing enough for the Black community? De-escalation is definitely what we need during all these protests and rioting because all this country need is justice.

Microaggressions are daily verbal, behavioral, or humiliation, that conveys hostile and derogatory insults towards minorities. Many perpetrators make statements that are racist without them knowing it. It’s due to the lack of education and awareness of other cultures that they feel the need to ask racial questions or comments. I will take a look at microaggressions at an institutional level, specifically the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Microaggressions occur because of insufficiency of education of minorities’ history and culture.

These two tools are the basis of solving problems, so the situation won’t end with bitter feelings towards each other.
Some scientists believe covid-19 was from nature, more specifically bats, but others also believe that it came from a lab in Wuhan since it's so close to the wet market... Or does it all connect to each other? Even the safest lab can break a safety violation code, such as a leakage. What has gone before and during the covid-19 outbreak? Who is at fault? What have scientists figured out so far? What was China's reaction to the pandemic?

Rehabilitation is the solution into making our world a better place because it works on making the mind and soul healthier, which is the component to how we affect others in our daily lives. “Learning to face reality, refusing refuge in cliches and lies, fighting to find a way out that's what rehab is about.” by Antonio Bird.
