What I Learned From Haidt’s Book: “The Righteous Mind” On Politics and Religion

I believe that the greatest divide between politics and intellectual discourse between people has never been completely polar opposites. Everyone is incredibly invested in their “team.” Politics is an incredibly expansive and bold topic to cover today.

Why is Modern Art So Bad? Artists Should Aim Higher

In my city of Ottawa, there is a lot of art to appreciate. Since Ottawa is the capital of Canada, we are fortunate to have a National Gallery of Canada. It's located near our downtown core.

Planned Obsolescence of Consumer Goods

Products were once made to last. You understood the length and value of your dollar. I'd argue people today are materialistic and consumer based with the products that break down quick.

How Physical Activity Can Help Moodiness

Life has it’s ups and downs. People handle it differently and it shows. Some people wallop when they are chased by waves in the storm while, others sail and coast along the wave.

How To “Corrupt The Youth” Using Philosophy

Getting Into A Flow State
