By Princeton Moses G.
The Late renown Irish Playwright (George Bernard Shaw) once wrote, “Democracy is a form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.” Shaw’s view on democratic governance rings true in many of the world’s democracies today; perhaps comprehensively. But it echoes particularly in a rather poignant way in so-called African Democracies. ...

Princeton Moses Gbah: Immigration Reform
The potential fluidity of American Politics at times even baffles the politically astute. It wasn’t long ago, though an eternity in political terms, when the political pundits, even the conservative ones, ostentatiously proclaimed that the GOP’s political viability henceforth strongly rested on the Party’s ability to appeal to minority voters, especially Hispanics who supported the ...

By Daniel McKay
Too Much 'Reality' News
We need to demand reality in the news, not ‘reality news’.  Reality news, not what news is supposed to be reporting on, “reality”, but “Road Rules” reality has plagued the news the past years.
