Political Gluttony & the Syrian Crisis

The assumption towards the Middle East, and many parts of the world outside Western civilization, such as Latin America and Central Asia, is that there is an even dichotomy between citizens supporting or opposing authoritarian regimes. But the reality is less simple. Arab citizens understand that, democracy can only unfold when two crucial changes take place, which cannotContinue reading “Political Gluttony & the Syrian Crisis”

We Major! Minorities in America in 2016 & Beyond
