Mankind’s Innovative Ingenuity: Genius or Labor?

All of these man-made wonders of the world our “intellectuals of society” brought into the light were indeed made, finished, or completed by the common man. We credit so much to the individuals who thought of or observed the creation of the symbols of our society, yet tend to ignore the “proletariat” in a sense. So, a question can be asked here. Who should be credited more for the pyramids; the Pharaohs who thought of them or the workers that built them? Is it genius or is it labor that created the world that we live in today?

A Year After Charlie Hebdo

On January 7th, 2015, a mass shooting of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, carried out by two Islamist gunmen who identified themselves as radical Al-Qaeda members from Yemen. These two men, brothers by the names of Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, along with a third gunman and close friend by the name of Amedy Coulibaly, were responsible for the largest terror attack in France since the June 1961 Vitry-Le-François train bombing which killed twenty-eight and injured 100+. The saddening fact is the Charlie Hebdo shootings weren’t going to be the most deadly attack on French soil in 2015.
