Books or Movies?

k.hadija

I would pick movies over books, i think that books include the deeper meaning and emotion of some scenes, that can't be expressed in a movie. Books are also more descriptive and movies don't always include everything that happens in the book because they don't have enough screen-time. Reading books can also expand your vocabulary and intelligence....

Con may choose from any well known religion, such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. As long as the ideas stem form...

Americans need to break free from the 2 party corporate trap.

Anonymous_Jim
Michaelbjenkins

The Republican and Democrat parties in America are controlled by corporate elites who pay off politicians and control political decisions through unfair wealth distribution and rigging of electoral processes by suppressing voices that go against their war agenda. We must embrace third parties and open debates so that we don't go too far down this path of unethical behavior and lack of compassion for humanity and the general environment. Imagine the country we could build if we didn't spend as mu...
