Demilitarization of Space

With the conclusion of the second World War, there were only two superpowers left

standing: the United States and the Soviet Union. In an attempt to deter each other from

advancing militaristically, as well as for propaganda reasons, each country began extensive

development of military hardware, including that of weapons of mass destruction, including

atom and hydrogen bombs.

Venezuela in Crisis

Nicolás Maduro rules a Venezuela in crisis. With hyperinflation reaching almost 1,000,00% and a refugee crisis emanating from the economic disaster within Venezuela, the nations of the world look with concern about how to best mitigate and contain the collapse of a formerly wealthy power in South America. An ever expanding refugee crisis where millions of Venezuelans have fled to Brazil and Colombia for economic opportunity is putting severe pressure on neighboring nations, and the need for a solution is ever more important.
