Fear.

For one of my classes I have to post on a discussion board three times a week about current affairs and policy incentives. Being a non-American and seeing this far into American life is scary. I feel I can’t express myself truly in this class, I can’t say how the Americans are perceived in Europe, how half the stuff they’re discussing in my classes (see post before) seems just ludicrous. I learnt today, from my American roommate, that they aren’t taught about evolution or allowed to discuss politics in school until they get to college. Wait, what? So much for freedom of speech!
