Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

What I always find interesting (read: sad) is that although some nation states are economically and politically powerful, their might fails to translate in to a fight for equality.

Of course the best example of this is the USA, where the first glimmer of possibility of electing a woman as president came just last election. This is unreasonable, and more than a little maddening. Then we look at cases like Rwanda which, not-but 15 years ago was in the throws of one of the worst civil conflicts the world has ever seen (and turned it's back on). Now, the country -still learning from its past in many mistakes- boasts one of the best records of political gender equality. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that Rwanda doesn't have it's political problems... but on the question of gender equality that country is leaps and bounds ahead of the USA.

Just last week we saw the first female Costa Rican president take her place at the table; who is going to argue that Costa Rica is a more advanced nation that Canada or the USA? No one would dare. And yet, we see evidence like this in many parts of the world. I think the fundamental difference is that countries that are doing well on this issue aren't waiting to tackle more pressing issues, and then dealing with it. They tackle what they can, when they can and if we're being honest gender issues is relatively low-hanging fruit in the grand scheme of worldwide issues. We can fix this. As a woman, I've always been taught that I need to work extra hard to get what I want... I hope that by the time I have my children, I won't have to teach my girls that lesson too.

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
