Colin Wilson, an English writer, philosopher, and novelist once firmly stated, “The average man is a conformist, accepting miseries and disasters with the stoicism of a cow standing in the rain.” ‘The average man,’ a seemingly (and correctly so) daunting phrase that evokes feelings of mediocrity and the idea of being sub-par. What is Colin Wilson saying here of the average man? Average, as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary is a level that is typical of a group, class, or series : a middle

Why I think income inequality is increasing in the United States? In my Opinion, the reason of income inequality is increasing in the United States is Growing Market. The globalized markets in the US are break downs the boundary of smaller, local market and provides new platforms and new audience to trades.

It tries to sell women a fake sense of empowerment, for example using symbols and slogans of women’s liberation movement on clothes and in advertisements. But only because it has found our weak spot and is trying to cash on it. In reality it gains trillions of dollars from women’s insecurities and keeps perpetuating the harmful notion that a woman’s value is solely in her appearance. That’s why the industry doesn’t care about you and your
