S2E16 Show Notes:
Hot Takes: Edible cutlery is the new wave of a sustainable future.
-North Korea, like every other sovereign nation, has a right to nuclear armament for self-defense.
-Nations that are not armed with nuclear deterrents could become targets by rogue states.
-If North Korea should disarm because of its "poor" human rights record, then the same justification should be applied to other countries, including the United States.
-The US is not in any position to be pointing fingers at the rest of the world as it relates to human rights abuses and violations.
-According to the Center for Research on Globalization, the World Report 2018, and the Human Rights Watch, the United States of America is the world's worst and most prolific human rights violator.
-Donald J. Trump, who is a confessed sexual predator and degenerate, enjoys overwhelming support by white evangelical Christians who endorse his harmful policies that criminalize race and poverty, and marginalize the LGBT community and people with disabilities.
