I thought I should pick one or two items in current events that really bother me. I read this somewhere and it seemed like good advice.
Here’s the rub. I’m upset often more than once a day by issues currently going on in the world, the US, in individual states, and towns that it’s very hard to choose one or two. And, even if I do pick one or three items, they seem to overlap quite a lot.
Furthermore occasionally I think I have picked my special topics, when something comes up that would affect everything else. For instance, the right to protest. If we don’t have this, everything stops. Or the right to privacy which no one seems to talk about much anyway. When you start thinking about the lack of privacy rights, everything else pales.These two items barely made my original list.
Here’s the list I made when attempting to narrow my topics.
Issues I Feel Strongly About:
WOMAN’S ISSUES HEALTH/EQUALITY
INTERNET FREEDOM AND PRIVACY
PRIVATE PRISONS/INCARCERATION RATE
MONEY IN POLITICS/DARK MONEY
LOW COST/FREE UNIVERSITY
