Recently, Britney Spears’ ongoing struggle for control over her life has moved from the realm of hardcore fans to the attention of the broader public. For many who care about the development of the story of the most famous icon of American female pop music, it is not for the entertainment value of her battle with her father over the conversatorship that enthralls them, but because what she is going through is a exemplar of the fight for freedom across the world.

In 2008, Britney lost custody of her two children with her ex-husband Kevin Federline and was ordered by…

Some lawmakers in China want to mitigate feminization and re-educate the boys with values of “yanggang spirit”, or virile masculinity. To respond to that appeal, China’s Department of Education recently formally replied a proposal with the name Proposal to Prevent the Feminization of Male Adolescents.

In the reply, the Department approved the notion that male adolescents in the country requires re-education on traditional, masculine values, and recommended an increase in teaching physical education classes. As this reply signifies the possibility that educating virile masculinity might become a more integral part of the future education in China, many people who have…


After Wayne Lapierre, a former conservative political consultant, became the executive vice president and CEO of the National Rifle Association, it became the most powerful weapons publicist in the United States and the world.

On November 7, the dust settled on the Presidential election that lasted four days. Within twenty minutes, ABC, CNN, Fox, NBC, MSNBC, Associated Press and CBS, which were responsible for observing the election, announced at around 11:24 PM EST that the Democratic presidential candidate, 77-year-old Joseph R. Biden Jr., had won the election and would become the 46th President of the United States. Meanwhile, the incumbent president, facing a grim pandemic of more than 100,000 confirmed cases a day and no beds in several state’s hospitals, is venting his frustrations on his own golf course.

The one that seems to be about Joe Biden, his Democratic opponent.

Biden’s scandal looked similar, according to many in the right-wing media circle, to the one in…


On 8 October 2020, the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation dropped a bombshell when it announced that it had detained 13 homegrown terrorists belonging to the Wolverine Watchmen, an extreme right-wing private militia. These men planned to forcibly kidnap Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer through an armed seizure of power, and at the same time violently overthrow the state government of Michigan, which is now controlled by the Democratic Party. In addition to Whitmer, Virginia’s Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, who was once notorious due to a “blackface” photo in his yearbook, was on the group’s kidnapping list as well.


President Trump, who was diagnosed with COVID-19 today and hospitalized with fever, has been a man who consistently refused to believe in morality and destiny.
