The Constitution and its Relevance in Modern Society

  The Constitution was written to replace the Articles of Confederation. The motive behind it was to grant the central (better known as federal) government more powers while not giving it so much power that the states and the people had no rights. While the Articles of Confederation had the power to declare war and handle diplomatic affairs, only state governments had the power to handle currency. Thus, had every state refused to give any funds, the federal government would ultimately fail, and because passing legislation required every state to vote affirmatively, it was almost impossible to enact anything.

An Overview of Antisemitism: It’s Tropes, Effects, and Current Examples

TWs: antisemitism, antisemitic attacks, the Holocaust and Nazis, gun violence.
Before I start talking about antisemitism, I want to write a disclaimer about myself: I do not consider myself to be religiously Jewish and I have not personally experienced antisemitism. That being said, my father’s family is Jewish and I’ve grown up around Jewish friends. I also try to connect to my Jewish culture and ancestry. So, while I’ve never experienced antisemitism myself, I have been surrounded by Judaism my entire life and it is an important part of my family’s history that I always enjoy learning about and experiencing.

A Deeper Look Into India’s COVID-19 Crisis

Debate is emerging over the role of wealthy nations in creating an inequitable vaccine rollout, including restrictions on exports of vaccines, raw materials used to make them, and intellectual property held by vaccine companies, and the stockpiling of vaccines, all leading to a shortage of vaccines in developing countries. Globally, around 75% of the vaccines have gone to only 10 countries. In addition to pointing out how unjust this hoarding of vaccines is, people have highlighted how it may prevent the end of the pandemic. Rapid community spread in developing countries without sufficient vaccines can lead to new mutations of the virus that may become resistant to existing vaccines. To see an end to this pandemic there must be global cooperation and accountability for wealthy nations who choose to act selfishly. 

Why Do Cities Hate The Homeless?

Hostile architecture, known as anti-homeless architecture is a form of architectural design to prevent or impede crime and help maintain order. It is a trend in urban design that discourages the use of spaces in any way other than the intention of the owner or designer.
