I have complete ignorance on most things political. So I took a survey from politicalcompass.org/test to find out where I stand on the left-to-right political scale. On the left, we have the communism and socialism spectrum, while on the right we see fascism and conservatism. I must be quite ignorant on the political scene because I didn’t have any idea what socialism and fascism mean. Through some research, I found that socialism is basically a system that a community controls its own production, distribution, and exchange. By community I mean it is not controlled by private enterprise, rather a central government or community. Fascism on the other hand is a governmental system led by a dictator who is in complete power, and also suppresses opposition and criticism. Fascism fundamentally opposes democracy and liberalism. Advisors to the dictator are usually based on merit rather than election, leaving no options for “the people” to decide. To me, this sounds a lot like communism, where both systems are based on a single leader. I learned that the main difference is that while communism is based on a theory of economic equality, fascism is based on strength displayed through violence and conquest, basically war. Another interesting thing I learned about communism versus fascism is that in communism, all class distinctions are eliminated; while with fascism, there is a strict class structure in place to prevent chaos. This is the base of Nazism, or the belief in a superior race.
My result from the political compass was:
Economic Left/Right: -2.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.79
The chart that is set up looks like this (that red dot is…

been one of the most important elements of global warfare. Spying on our enemies to gain information has saved many American lives through preventing attempts on our nation. New technology developed methods of espionage that were pivotal to the outcome of World War II. Americas enemies also used espionage throughout the entirety of the war. Tom Farrelly

I have a Dream
By: Kelsey Kaiser
I have a dream that one day everyone will have enough to keep them full and no one will go to bed hungry. One day there will be enough food for everyone and enough programs to help the starving that even homeless and poor people will have enough food. This would help people have better lives because overcoming hunger is like getting over a giant wall in your way. It’s one less problem to have to worry about. One day people who live in poverty won’t be starving…
bullying are largely undisputed. As U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said earlier this year at a White House conference on bullying, students involved in bullying are more likely to struggle in school, use drugs and alcohol, and have physical and mental-health issues that can linger well into adulthood.
Delaware has a strong anti-bullying law. The problem is that the law is not being uniformly followed. Delaware’s law requires that schools report incidents of bullying to the following:…
I have a dream to no longer be self-conscious about myself. Every day millions of teenagers go to school feeling upset about the way they are and look. I wish I could change that because the feeling is terrible and self-consciousness puts you down when you try to do your best. Not being confident about the way you look happens a lot and can bring your self-esteem down. It causes you not to stand out and interact with others; it makes you feel embarrassed about the way you look. Being self-conscious…

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech is among the most acclaimed in U.S. history, and the 50th anniversary this week of the March on Washington where he delivered it highlights the speech's staying power.
His soaring close "to let freedom ring" still resonates today and inspires those who are moved by his dream.
He began with: "I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
trip to London from Oxford University where I was earning some graduate
credits one summer, a young man, obviously fresh from a pub, spotted me and as
if struck by inspiration went down on his knees in the aisle. With both hands over
his heart he broke into an Irish tenor's rendition of "Maria" from West Side Story.
My politely amused fellow passengers gave his lovely voice the round of gentle
applause it deserved. Though I was not quite as amused, I managed my version of
an English smile: no…
“I Have a Dream”
Martin Luther King Jr. was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. On August 28, 1963, in Washington, Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous speech, “I Have a Dream.” In front of an interracial crowd of over 200,000 people, Dr. King uplifted the crowd with his emotional and powerful speech. After reading and researching the speech I learned that Martin Luther King Jr. was paying homage to Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. King’s speech also implores to the Declaration of Independence…
