A Country I Could Call Home, an open letter from an Armenian-Syrian DACA recipient

Since the “victory” of Donald J. Trump, white nationalism has removed its own veil. Layers and layers. It has always existed. In fact, it is the original sin of America. Even when I arrived here in 1995, I felt it. It was all around me. I could smell it. I could taste it. I hatedContinue reading “A Country I Could Call Home, an open letter from an Armenian-Syrian DACA recipient”

Flirting with Fascism

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that white nationalism has triumphed in America. Brexit, the decision for England to leave the UK, laid the trajectory of the Western world earlier this year. The world is undergoing vast changes in response to economic decline and a rise in global terrorism, particularly from the Middle East. It has beenContinue reading “Flirting with Fascism”

The Final Debate & Why Putin Might Actually Prefer Clinton

The rise of Donald Trump is reminiscent in a lot of ways of Adolf Hitler. This correlation has been perhaps run dry and overplayed by the media, but there is a deeper ring to it than just the hateful rhetoric and outright evil policy ambitions these two have in common. Besides Hitler’s ideological madness, beneath itContinue reading “The Final Debate & Why Putin Might Actually Prefer Clinton”

Uncovering My Personal Legend: A Journey for Self-Actualization Amidst Chimerical Wish Fantasies

There are so many opportunities I, and many like me, were denied due to institutional obstacles for immigrants, even one like me, who has lived in the US since he was 6. That was in 1996. It’s now 2016, and I’m 28. I still have no status anywhere except Syria, my home country, which forContinue reading “Uncovering My Personal Legend: A Journey for Self-Actualization Amidst Chimerical Wish Fantasies”

This Glass Design

Poetry is dead in a world with no head, A world with one body that plucks at its bread, A hunger or thirst, no intellect to quench, Terrorizing the world while we sit from the bench, Is there a light at the end of the tunnel, Or are we foolishly tracing the fence, All along aContinue reading “This Glass Design”

Who Is Tim Kaine? A Brief History

Tim Kaine has been officially declared as Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate. As news tabloids emblazon images of the newly chosen “veep” on television and computer screens, many ordinary Americans are left wondering – who is this guy?

The Rebalancing of Powers: From ‘Brexit’ to Babel?

There is a disconnect between national policy and international relations. The decision to leave the EU by the UK, or “Brexit”, is a symbol of that disconnect. But in order to understand the origins of this decision, it is important to highlight the UK’s tradition of reluctance and hesitation towards the EU since its inception.Continue reading “The Rebalancing of Powers: From ‘Brexit’ to Babel?”

When Minorities Rule

Anger has no ideology. It constantly flip flops between extreme strands of leftist or rightist political orientations. That’s why often times you will find individuals who are on the fringes of society attacking all those who participate in mainstream politics, no matter their ideology. Take Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. They promise hand-outs, whether itsContinue reading “When Minorities Rule”
