Lip Balm Wars: EOS vs Chapstick vs The Competition

Lip balms are some of the best oral care products available. They’re small in size, easy to carry around, and they offer temporary relief from dry chapped lips.

The majority of the industry has sub-par products that only give the user a nice sweet glaze across the lips. Chapstick has been a staple in this field for up to 100 years. It’s been dominating more than any over lip balm until recently. Burt’s Bees has been the top product for a few years as well. This back and forth action between the two has opened the door up for a new contender at has everything that one would need in a proper lip balm product.

Thor Halvorssen Warns Against Authoritarian Socialism

Thor Halvorssen is the founder and president of the Human Rights Foundation and speaks tirelessly on behalf of freedom, liberty and democracy. Halvorssen was recently interviewed by Fox News regarding his take on U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders’ democratic socialist agenda, which Sanders has been promoting the whole time he has been campaigning for president. Halvorssen weighed in on his thoughts on the principles supported by Sanders and provided a cautionary tale of embracing democratic socialism with adequate protections against the government claiming too much power away from its citizens.

Halvorssen explains that the practical application of socialist principles is very different, typically, than what academics discuss. For instance, Halvorssen points to Venezuela as a troubling example at how socialism can lay the groundwork for massive human rights violations by a government against its own citizens. Halvorssen did not have to look far beyond his own personal experiences to speak truth to this statement. Halvorssen’s father was imprisoned under completely made up charges of terrorism while Halvorssen was studying at the University of Pennsylvania in 1993. His father was investigating a powerful drug cartel for money laundering, and unfortunately suffered serious political consequences. Even more troubling, his mother was shot at a peaceful political protest in Venezuela. Even now, Halvorssen’s first cousin is being held as a political prisoner in Venezuela.

Halvorssen explains that while socialist principles may sound appealing to address the immediate needs of the poorer classes of society, they can often lead to a government taking more and more freedoms away from its citizens. This is why, Halvorssen warns, that if a society embraces socialism, it must be sure that there are sufficient safeguards in place to prevent the government from becoming too big and wielding too much power over its own citizens. Once citizens relinquish controls to government, it is almost impossible to reign the government back in to its previous place. Thor Halvorssen says that this is not necessarily a problem in every society, but it is certainly something to be mindful of before adopting socialist policies without enough checks and balances in place.

Yeonmi Park’s Book: In Order To Live A North Korean Girl’s Journey To Freedom Is A Compelling Story

The thought of escaping an abuse dictatorship is not something most readers know how to do, or need to do. But the story of Yeonmi Park explains in vivid detail what it is like to get away from North Korean and cross China in the hands of people that are just as bad as the abusers that held her captive since birth. Park explains her incredible journey out of North Korea in detail in her book: In Order To Live A North Korean Girl’s Journey To Freedom. Freedom was a word with no meaning when Park was growing up in North Korea. Freedom didn’t exist. The people of North Korea live like animals. They are subjected to mental and physical abuse in order to obey the rules of a tyrant. Yeonmi and her mother decided to do the unthinkable and escape from North Korea. The 2007 trip out of the country and into the hands of slave traffickers was unbearable, but somehow Park and her mother endured the physical abuse, and they made it across the Gobi desert. Trying to explain that trip in a book was a very difficult task, but Park wanted the world to know how miserable life is in North Korea. In an article published by NY Times Park explains why some of the facts in the story sound unbelievable. Trying to put words together that describe months of torture after the fact is not easy. Language issues and mental breakdowns make it hard for anyone to describe in detail every aspect of a journey through hell. But Park tried and succeeded in bringing the agony of the trip to life and the hardships she lived through in North Korea. Not everyone that reads Park’s book understands the pain and suffering that actually happened, but most readers get a taste of the human right violations that exist in North Korea. Yeonmi Park wants to tell on casey and yeonmi and the world about North Korea, and her book does an excellent job in that regard. The details of her journey to South Korea also paint a picture of the abuse that exist in parts of the world that most people will never experience.
