That massacre sparked the idea for tighter gun laws. These are the types of actions that we would see occur in the world if we chose to forget all the bad memories of society. Do you remember the atrocities of the first and second world war? What if you never learnt about these heinous acts of cruelty?

We live in a global village that has many religions in it and hence should not make laws that are partial to few or put others at a disadvantage. Religions have contradicting opinions on topics and no law supporting or declaring that any one opinion is correct should be passed.

It would be very unfortunate if Malaysians repeat and face the same difficulties and agonies that others have gone through and later find it very hard to overcome the

In the world today, America is not living up to the ideals of the Enlightenment. A few reasons why America is not living up to the Enlightenment is because of the strict voter ID laws restricting the poor to vote, transgender bathroom law preventing transgender to use the bathroom that fits their gender, and peaceful protesters gets mistreated when they have the rights to protest.

This seems to be the answer to every issue regarding the sexual liberation in the country. Yet, nobody attempts to actually understand the interpretations of the purpose of these depictions in Khajuraho. The tourism industry has wrecked the village and turned the site into a commercial commodity by using ‘sex’ to attract tourism to Khajuraho, while the media blatantly pulls it out to argue against every other issue that it is dealing with. It needs to understand the socio-political contexts before making these arguments and also analyse the socio-political context of the present

One such narrative is by Edwin Lee that conflicts with Lee's memoirs. Evaluating different perspectives of the Singapore Story allows one to have a more holistic view of the Singapore Story.
