Woke ideology doesn’t belong in schools

All students deserve a learning environment that is free of political indoctrination

Woke ideology doesn’t belong in schoolsIf you’ve been around for a while, you probably remember the phrase “politically correct.” Being called politically correct was not a compliment.

Elizabeth II had the poise to navigate the cesspool of colonialism

The British Empire enslaved human beings, destroyed functioning states, destroyed economies, and imprisoned and killed countless people

Elizabeth II had the poise to navigate the cesspool of colonialismThe period of mourning after the death of Queen Elizabeth II was unprecedented. In my experience, the passing of an older person is followed by a celebration of life, where people gather to pay their respects and honour the positive legacy of a person who touched their lives.
