Peer to peer ethical trade and human trafficking

The most frequently overlooked aspect of trafficking is the labour trade market, which forces people in conflict zones to find work through companies which extort them, and they mine things like rare minerals used to build cellphones and blood diamonds, depending on the area. The closer you get to the original source, the worse the […]

Waging Peace Part III

The invasion of my own life is going quite well actually; I spoke to a female leader about some of my ideas regarding energy divestment and peace brokering.  I explained what an Article 5 Decision was and how trafficking fits in with regards to fuel and energy. Personal problems have me overwhelmed though which is […]

The Silent Genocide

The other day my mom asked me about my opinion regarding Autism Speaks. You should first understand that I spent most of my life completely unaware that I had autism, and it was really only after learning that this was the case that life began to make any sense at all.  My dad taught me […]

Darkweb Shopping

STERN:   “Whoever saves one life saves the world entire.” “In one of the last scenes in the film, as Schindler prepares to flee from the Allies, the Schindlerjuden give Schindler a gold ring made from gold fillings, engraved with the above quotation from the Talmud, the book of Jewish law. After the Allied victory, Schindler is […]

Vanity, the Venus Effect, and the Observer

Today I learned that one of my favourite boutiques in town is going out of business, which is a damned shame; its funky and elegant and the prices are reasonable and everything is more or less luxury fair trade.  Apparently she has to close because she is tired, and I can understand that, but I […]

Life As a Woman Online

I don’t go out very often because I deal with severe social anxiety and depression as a result of my time on the Training Floor and repeated injuries – it often seems as though my entire life is dedicated simply to physio, walking the dog, writing, or sleeping – but when I do go out, […]

An Honest Declaration Regarding a Living Wage

I frequently read conservative arguments online regarding a living wage and condemning it as a tax grab which unnecessarily coddles “lazy people.” My parents are or were both labourers, and I thought the whole point of having an education was so I didn’t end up in a soul sucking dead end job that broke my […]

The Threads of Trade

Today I went into town and went shopping, as per my regular MO.  I am looking into work and moving, and rather than have to bring boxes in and out of my rather cramped space more than once, I decided instead to buy another trunk to put my things in, which ran me $30.00 at […]
