Earlier in this blog, I made a post showing a trailer on a movie that showed what could happen if immigrants disappeared. This here is a south park compilation showing what the main argument is against immigration, legal or not. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=768h3Tz4Qik&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Should we as a society be concerned with our world's exponential growth? Personally I think so. We are running out of resources as it is and we continue to multiply in population. Check out this link. It will open up your eyes. http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/
I was reading and stumbled upon a blog that showed that of all music genres country has the highest correlation with suicide. (anyone heard of the phrase tear in the beer?). Well I am a country fan, and I can believe it. Even our soc. book mentions it. My favorite artist of all time is Alan Jackson. Who is yours and do you believe these statements? Remember,correlation does not mean causation. www.alanjackson.com
This video is in German, and forgive another apple joke, but this shows the technology gap between the elderly and young. Just watch it. It's freaking hilarious.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtXWWRyJLPw&feature=youtube_gdata_player

On the note of socialism, Karl Marx was the one who essentially founded the idea. Socialism by definition states that it is an economic system where resources and production are owned collectively by the citizens. I have not read the works of him, but to me it seems that Marx forgot one crucial thing in creating the concept: Human Nature. True Socialism would only work in an ideal environment where no one was selfish and everyone had ideal characteristics. Thoughts?
