What’s With Kids These Days?
I have grown up in an environment that is surrounded by growing adolescents,as any person does, but I have been blessed with the opportunity to observe people grow because my mother is a First Grade teacher. I often visit her class and other children at the schools’ Daycare, and have noticed an increasing trend: we are in a ‘New Age,’ and this ‘New Age’ is affecting our society’s government, political system, and -most of all- our children. This is the age of Political Correctness.
Since the the year 1999, ISIS has been gaining popularity and posing a grave threat to not only the safety of the United States, but to all surrounding nations. This radical jihadist group gained major popularity when they obtained and beheaded hostages in late 2014, and these acts relate much to the complete dominion Big Brother accomplishes in the popular novel by George Orwell, 1984. As Big Brother is constantly changing laws and has complete reign over its citizens, " ISIS controls hundreds of square miles where state authority has evaporated.
Is ISIS a threat to America and, if not, should the US government get involved? According to John McCain, "One of the biggest mistakes ever made in my view in recent times was the president's overruling his entire national security team, including the secretary of state, that argued two years ago for providing weapons for the Free Syrian Army. That was a seminal moment."
