Political Newsletter
    #4414591 - 07/17/05 01:32 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Once the fall semester starts back up for school, I think I'm going to start an independent newsletter dealing with news and politics. It will probably end up being a short newsletter, 2-3 pages each week. I'm brainstorming for some topics now so I don't have to think of it all on the fly. Of course some topics will come from current affairs, but I feel I should have some broader topics (War on Drugs, 3rd parties, etc.) for when no one is being killed or slandered. If you guys (and gal) wouldn't mind contributing a few topics, it would sure be appreciated. Once I start distributing them, I'll upload them here so the enlightened PAL visitors can  tear them apart. :wink:

Cool idea. I'd be glad to brainstorm up some topics and ideas that are filled with my egotistical pontificating on life, politics, and everything in between.

Lovely. I'll probably do about half on politics & current affairs, and the other half on local politics and whining about the school.

One topic that I have been struggling with lately is power and the use of force. When do you have the right to exert force upon another? What amount of force is allowable? Should you obey current laws that dictate such things or are you allowed to be an existentialist and do as "one wishes"? Should you be ruthless or restrained in the pursuit of force? Should you let emotion or logic guide you in the pursuit of force? If you do obey some law or rule that dictates a pattern of behavior in such circumstances, then which set of rules do you obey or strive to emulate?

You should whine about too many drunk college kids running around your town.

Will you focus on political theory or real political affairs? Will you be very matter of fact or will you inject your opinions into the mix? What will be the basic format of this newsletter?

It will mostly be about political affairs, and current problems plaguing the United States. It will be very opinion-based, b/c I hope to get a rise out of people so I can get a discussion going through e-mails published in the newsletter. Of course, I'm not just going to blindly go about slinging my ideals without giving facts and references to statistics. As of right now, the format will be a two-sided sheet of paper (I know, very short) due to my lack of money to make it any longer. It will probably be 1 long article, 1 medium-lengthed one, and then a few short ones. Along the margins will be facts and statistics on whatever I feel like peope should know, depending on what that theme of the week's newsletter is.
