Paine’s Final Address

Well, that didn’t go exactly as planned. Actually, it went horribly. Maximilien Robespierre’s reign of terror, which brought and end to the lives of over a thousand innocent people, who did nothing but speak out against Robespierre’s views on government. The man was insane, calling himself a member of the committee of public safety, while at the same time killing off the citizens of france. His actions were not to protect the.. Read More

Moving Toward a Better Nation

February, 1791 Today is the day that my response to the ever so closed-minded Edmund Burke’s attack on revolution in France is published. His arguments against change are so narrow-minded and inflexible, it’s frustrating that people actially agree with his baseless views on the revolution. He believes that France will not be able to govern itself under a new system, simply because it hasn’t been done before! They say you miss every shot.. Read More

Rights of Man

Thomas Paine was a journalist who published many revolutionary pamphets in his time. “Rights of Man” was a book published in response to Edmond Burke’s “Reflections on the Revolutions in France,” in which he attacked the revolutoionists and emphasised the dangers of mob rule, fearing that the Revolution’s fervour was destroying French society. In “Rights of Man,” Paine presents a discussion of the principles of government, advocating the constitutional republic that.. Read More

In-Depth Post 6: Final Project?

So over the past month or so I’ve been working on coding assignments that my mentor has given me to reinforce what I already know as well as to help him keep track of what I can and can’t do. So far, it’s been going really well. I’ve been able to do most of the assignments without too much trouble, and my mentor was impressed with my progress.  Here is.. Read More

Common Sense

November, 1775 It makes absolutely no sense. How can so many residents of the American colonies blind themselves to the obvious benefits that are to be gained by separating from Europe. Some even claim that separating from Britain would bring only downsides. Frankly, it’s a little disquieting that they would let their ideals blind them to reality. This monarchy does absolutely nothing for them, quite the opposite actually. Colonists are.. Read More

(∩ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)⊃━☆ Memes (∩ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)⊃━☆

I really don’t know how to start a blog post about memes. It just feels so… wrong. Regardless, memes are a topic very close to my heart, and I have enjoyed the chance to work with them over the past few days. Anyway, here are my quality, school appropriate socials memes. My first meme is based off the Hamilton musical, taking a line directly out of it (almost). The only.. Read More

In-Depth post #5

Today marks the start of my 2 month countdown to having to be finished my project, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling the pressure of having to get everything right before then. That being said, I feel like I’m making a lot of progress. Over spring break I spent around 45 minutes to an hour working on the course assigned to me by my mentor. The.. Read More

Assisted Dying: What are The Consequences?

.Before reading, I highly suggest taking a look at this page Doctor assisted dying has been a taboo for many hundreds of years, and more recently, it has come into the light and is now a controversial topic that is being looked at again by various governments and medical professionals in North America. The Hippocratic Oath originally stated “I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am.. Read More

In Depth Post #4- We In There

After years of crying myself to sleep and wishing I signed up for normal classes in high school, Ms.Mulder was kind enough to help me find a mentor: A TALONS alumni currently in grade 12 who does computer programming for a hobby. (I won’t name him for privacy reasons but shoutout to him.) We first met last week, where he taught me some of the basics of python. Some of the.. Read More

In-Depth Post #3 Wake Me Up (Wake Me Up Inside)

Alright so this year’s In-Depth is shaping up to really be difficult for me. After weeks of looking online and sending out emails, I have still yet to find someone who agreed to mentor me for the duration of the project. To compensate for this, I started learning using online resources such as learnpython.org. Using this, I can get a hold of some of the concepts I will need to learn.. Read More
