“The mark of a political partisan is the inability to even consider the validity of opposing arguments. The national political debate cannot thrive if we constantly believe in the arrogant notion that one political party is pure and the other is eternally damned. This nation will not advance if both parties are secluded to their echo chambers and institutions. This established political divide, advanced by a profiteering media, is corroding this nation, perverting once-bipartisan resolutions and decimating the ideals of a once-great nation. To further evade such a divide, the American people have to recognize that logical debate, not irrational sound-bytes, is the key to representing all our needs. Only when we recognize the humanity and individualized morality of our political opponents can we use politics for societal excellence.”

-Ethan Kim, Executive Editor

A strict adherence, however, can be dismissive of the most important virtues in government, which are adaptability and balance. To be able to reform oneself, allows that entity to survive in an ever-changing environment where all things have a beginning and an end, a reason to exist, and are different from one another. This trinity of complexity and differences allows us to recognize the substantial qualms that benefit our ever more complex society. A balance can ensure equal understanding among the political groups which dominates the landscape.

“After the Fukushima Nuclear accident in 2011, radiation spread around the area of the reactor and has still yet to be cleaned up as of December of 2019. Working around radioactive waste such as that found around the nuclear reactor will inevitably cause cancer. When some older people in Japan heard about this, they volunteered to clean the waste up because their dream was to hand down a world that was just a little bit cleaner to the next generation. The dream of those small groups of people perfectly exemplifies a dream worth having.”

“Whether you’re sad, a mess, or hit rock bottom- keep moving forward and keep smiling. Remember that the light can reach even the bottom of a dark ocean, and you will find that your smile will guide you towards the light once more.”

-Edwin Tieu, Managing Editor

Don’t do something because other people expect you to. Do it for yourself. Do it because it’s rewarding. Do it because it’s something you want to do.”
