~~ Social Issues ~~

This page is dedicated to discussions and links regarding what I consider to be the Social Issues that seriously affect our very lives.

A vital issue, and a terrifying comparison: When Democracy Failed Please take note of this!!

Things happen every day that send shivers through the fabric of rational society. Fanaticism, hate, senseless violence - all of these threaten to take our normally calm lives and turn them into a waking nightmare. Because these things can cost us in blood and suffering, this page is written in blood red.

The links on this page point to either lives that have been dragged into the nightmare, the people with the claws that threaten to drag us in, or the events that can turn out lives upside down.

The commentary is my own, or otherwise attributed. Also, this page is a "work in progress", and I will be updating it as I have the time. If you know of link that make sense for some of the categories here, let me know.
