Democracy is faltering. The divisions between citizens of every nation are becoming increasingly deep as the rifts push away from one another. Party politics are not what they once were, there is no longer a middle ground. This game of political cat and mouse, scapegoating buffoonery has us so entrenched in idealogical warfare that we have entirely forgotten what has made our species so advanced.

Crush the notion that men can’t be raped, the idea that men aren’t victims or survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault or abuse. According to the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, one in six boys will be abused before 18 in Utah. Unfortunately, that statistic is horribly wrong due to the atmosphere in which we raise boys: show no emotion, show no weakness and always be indestructible.

One of the biggest sensations of this generation is movie-streaming service. This innovation revolutionized the movie industry for many years. People cannot live without it. With it being the new year, the question to be asked is, what will these companies do next? Netflix has already prepared a strategy for 2016.

Over the past few years, I’ve not made my personal history a secret. My articles are always chock-full of anecdotes from my life experience, both humorous and serious. One recurring theme that popped up in the text over the years is the experience of losing my son Jonathan, and with good cause, the experience was a testament to the highs and lows which we experience in life.

Recently, Robin Williams’ widow, Susan, was interviewed by Amy Robach of ABC where she said that depression didn’t kill her husband; she claimed that Lewy Body Dementia caused him to commit suicide. The dialogue around Williams’ death has incredibly damaging repercussions for disabilities. People are trying to justify the suicide of Williams and attempted to use disability as a scapegoat. This rationalization is based on the idea that being disabled is worse than being dead. We see products of this idea everywhere from the way we talk to how we treat others.

“The originals were way better.” This is a statement that all remakes and newer movies in a series must endure. Just recently the newest Star Wars movie, “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens,” took theatres by storm. The bar was set high for Disney when it came to reviving the franchise and they did not disappoint. There are always some who will either blindly defend or have reasons why they think the original trilogy was better, and no matter what movie it is there will always be this group.
