Legalize All Drugs!

Legalize it! All of it! Don't celebrate that marijuana is legal in more and more places even without the guise of medical use. It's not enough and this isn't just a question of our civil liberties. Sure, "it's my body... Continue Reading →

Truth & Identity: Verbs, Nouns & Climbing Ladders

I was watching a few Joe Rogan clips, as I am accustomed to doing, and stumbled upon an interesting idea, or rather the framing of an idea, that I had never come across before (I feel silly saying that because... Continue Reading →

To Tell The Truth: What It Really Means To Be Honest

Recently, I've run into and had to deal with a couple of addicts. I think of them now because no one lies more than an addict. An acquaintance of mine is going through a terrible time and I've tried to... Continue Reading →

Free Speech & Censorship: A Look At Sacha Baron Cohen’s Speech At An ADL event & TYT Reaction

I watched this video in the middle of the night (couldn't sleep again). If you don't watch TYT, it's a great place to get US and international news from a leftist perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OodpUmYk3MY Sacha Baron Cohen RIPS FacebookThe Young Turks... Continue Reading →

Lest We Forget: The Importance Of Suffering

When I was young boy, maybe 7 or 8, I remember sitting at the head of my kitchen table after I got into an argument with my friends. I have absolutely no recollection of the argument itself, but it was... Continue Reading →

All I Really Have To Say

I once wrote on the back of the cover of a book I loved passionately, "My last words: I had something profound to say but I've forgotten what it was." I hadn't actually forgotten; sometimes we say things but what... Continue Reading →

Ellen Degeneres, George W. Bush & The Trump Impeachment

When Ellen Degeneres is sitting next to George W. Bush, we should consider all the evil we accept in our society. How we laugh at the war criminals when they are on late night talk shows, or talk about how charming and funny they are. The people that were tortured, the people that are dead, the people that sill live in prison or in constant fear for their lives are not laughing.

The Problem With New Atheism: Secularism Requires A Plurality

The beauty of secularism was that it was tolerant; it could accept a plurality of people and belief systems. This new brand secularism is as orthodox and stringent as religion used to be (at least in how it had been represented).

Suicide Is Not A Mental Health Issue, It’s A Social Issue

I've been living in pretty much total isolation for more than a year. It's amazing what a broken mind and broken spirit can do to your body too. I'm unrecognizable. This isn't about why, its about what I can do... Continue Reading →

Bill 21: In Defense of Culture

I understand that there is a certain appeal to living in a 'secular' society, and I also understand why someone might feel uncomfortable at the sight of the hijab. I think that discomfort is misguided but comes from an honest and decent place. To ask someone to stop wearing the hijab is akin to asking them to stop being a woman, and just be a human. That's just not who we are. To be human is to believe in things that don't exist, to make our lives mean something more than they do, and to actualize our collective imaginations. Anything less is precisely inhuman.

Bell Let’s Talk: The Implications of How We Define Mental Illness

Mental illness has long been a sanitized issue. When we discuss mental health, we discuss it in a way that does not deviate from the dominant ideological practices of our time. I want to discuss mental illness in a way that gives dignity and power back to those who suffer from it and expose the social norms and practices that work to make mental illness worse.

Grey Eyes

Her grey eyes seem only natural as they light her face perfectly even in the shade. Her head sits on the most elegant long slender neck, like from some Victorian painting. She's so kind. Too kind. Present at all times.... Continue Reading →

Jail Wasn’t So Bad: My Experience & A Commentary On Our Society

Kindness In The Depths Of Depression
