This Generation: *helps the legalization LGBTQIA+ marriage, actually gives a shit about modern racism instead of brushing it under the rug, accepts each other regardless of gender identity, sexuality, religion, etc., promotes body positivity more than ever before, advocates for the rights of women, and is considered to be way more liberal than previous generations*

Last Generation: ugh, this generation is so shallow! Kids these days don’t care about anyone but themselves and their phones! They play on their devices all day without making any difference in the world! So lazy and selfish!


I had the honor to work on this project! I got to pick out the 1980s and 2010s of Palestine! It was amazing and if you guys have any questions contact me through this blog or my personal @ghassankanafanis !!!

Immigrants less likely to commit crimes in United States than those born in America

“Immigrants are less likely to commit crimes in the US than those born in the country, according to new analysis of 30-years of census data.  

Between 1980 and 2010, immigrants were one-half to one-fifth as likely to be jailed when compared with American citizens, the study by the Cato Institute think tank found.

Around seven per cent of the country’s population are non-citizens, while five per cent of inmates in state and federal prisons fall into that category,

The drew their conclusions after analysing figures compiled by the US Justice Department.

“There’s no way I can mess with the numbers to get a different conclusion,” Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the Cato Institute, told the New York Times.

The analysis comes as President Donald Trump submitted an executive order that claims immigrants “present a significant threat to national security and public safety”.

The order forces the Department of Homeland Security to publish a weekly list of all crime “committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honour any detainers with respect to such aliens.”

The list will also include details of so-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse to hand over immigrant residents for deportation.

The order claimed the measures were needed to “ensure the safety and territorial integrity of the United States” and on signing the order, Mr Trump read out the names of US citizens who were murdered by illegal immigrants.”

/ «Contestate e create: sono le due parole che io direi ad un giovane per educarlo. Deve imparare a contestare e a creare. Non bisogna cadere dalla contestazione nello scetticismo: occorre guardare alla storia. Sempre si sono messe in discussione le conquiste di un'epoca dall'epoca successiva. Sono state messe in discussione le conquiste sociali, le conquiste scientifiche, le conquiste filosofiche ed è bene che continui così. Occorre però collegare questa contestazione con la creazione. Contestazione e creazione sono legate fra di loro. Capire questo è fondamentale. Credo che uno degli insegnamenti della matematica (e particolarmente della storia della matematica) consista proprio nel far vedere che la matematica è passata da una contestazione a un'altra; ha contestato e messo in discussione il postulato in Euclide, il carattere intuitivo degli assiomi, la verità assoluta dei teoremi matematici, ecc., ma sempre per creare le premesse ad un nuovo passo in avanti che faceva progredire la disciplina e le sue conoscenze. Il significato profondo di questo “progresso” e di questi “passi in avanti” può essere colto solo attraverso lo studio accurato della storia della matematica e della storia delle idee. La storia delle idee è storia di lotte e di conquiste, di contestazioni e di creazioni. Queste sono le parole che io direi ai giovani: contestate e create!» (Ludovico Geymonat, Scienza e storia, Bertani editore, Verona, p. 56; testo della relazione tenuta dal prof. Ludovico Geymonat a Varese nel pomeriggio di sabato 12 gennaio 1985) /
