Recently the debate of what is truly ethical under capitalism has become somewhat of a hot button topic. Perhaps this Marxist idea has become popular due to the show “The Good Place,” in which the underlying topic of it all is that people’s actions become highly complicated because of “the exploitative systems in which we work and live.” Meaning, due to the way products and corporations source and execute policy in unethical ways, our consumption of said product will ultimately be unethical as well.

A lot of people expect you to know where you're going, especially when you're entering college or a new phase in life. From around the age of 17, we are all supposed to know who we are, what we want to do and how we are going to do it. That is highly unrealistic.
A letter to my fellow Gamecocks,
For a little while after I first came to USC, I felt very alone. Even though I had a roommate and so many others surrounding me, it still felt like I didn’t have anyone close to talk to. It can be hard to form friendships in your first year of college, especially if you have moved far away from home. Now that I am going into my senior year, I can safely say that it might seem hard, but it is actually quite easy to find people who you can relate to and build strong friendships with.
As a new semester of classes begins and a fresh group of students embark on their college careers, it is important to recognize and celebrate the unique culture of USC. From Five Points to football games, understanding the intricacies of USC life can take a bit of time.
Recently, USC’s new president Bob Caslen said, “If you're going to be an effective leader, you have to have the humility to listen and to understand across the entire spectrum of thought,” and with his newfound position at the university, I hope he truly does have humility.
It is indisputable that the appointment of Robert Caslen as USC’s 29th president was a long and controversial process. After President Harris Pastides announced his retirement, tensions ran high in both April and July as student activists tried to stop Caslen from getting the position.
This past weekend we saw the “Flags Across the South” take to the Statehouse grounds to display Confederate flags and memorabilia. It was only four short years ago the Confederate flag was seen flying over our capital city, and I am personally glad to see it has found a home elsewhere. That being said, I do not believe that we should burn these flags or remove historical markers containing information about the Confederacy.
A letter to the editor and for the members of the Board of Trustees,
You need to be paying attention to USC’s search for a new president.
During any holiday season, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or Christmas, people love to complain about the consumerism of celebrating a holiday. But what happens if the excess of a celebration costs the American people hundreds of thousands of dollars?
South Carolina is one of the only states that still does not allow the promotion of homosexuality in a classroom setting, and while that isn’t something that is strongly enforced, it is definitely something I wish I knew about before coming to USC.
How many of us can truly say we do not support any brands that go against our political views? Do we really put our money where our mouths are, and, better yet, is it truly possible?
From “Queer Eye” to “Queer as Folk,” the “Q” in LGBTQ+ has started to be reclaimed by the community.
There are two types of segregation: de jure and de facto. De jure segregation is an enforced separation of groups in a society by law, while de facto segregation refers to an unspoken division of groups based largely on the common ideologies and cultural similarities of the respective groups — as it is at USC.
As a college student, I understand how hectic juggling school and work can be while also trying to maintain a social life. It’s stressful, so it can become easy to stray away from a grounded and positive mindset. It is common for us to take for granted the positive things we already have in our lives while we are working towards building our futures. Often times we get so distracted by minor setbacks along the way that it has the ability to drastically shift our focus.
Every June, more companies come out with Pride campaigns. From social media to granola bars, it seems like everyone thinks being gay is something they can capitalize on without actually supporting.
Each morning on my commute to work, I play music and drink my coffee. I’ll take my headphones out to greet the shuttle driver, but then proceed to get lost in whatever song I am listening to and prepare for the day ahead.
