A Day in the Life of a VCE Student by Reagan Tao 11E

A Day in the Life of a VCE Student by Reagan Tao 11E | We are authors in Australia | Scoop.it

“Communism has never been tried”? Cameron Gosley (Student post)

“Communism has never been tried”? Cameron Gosley (Student post) | We are authors in Australia | Scoop.it
One of the strangest arguments that I hear in defence of Communism is the mistaken belief that it has never been tried. This is usually in response to someone pointing out the failings of the ideology in practise. With a death toll in the realm of the tens to a hundred million people, this makes…

Tick Tock

Tick Tock | We are authors in Australia | Scoop.it
Tick Tock 10… The normally crowded streets of London were now almost deserted, with the only remnants being those who appreciated the silence and simply enjoyed bathing in the moon’s beauty. Countless droplets of water poured down from the cloudy sky above, creating an ethereal rhythm as they collided with the cold concrete below. Such…

Coinflip

Coinflip | We are authors in Australia | Scoop.it
Quick, someone approaches. Hide it. Conceal it. That was close, remember why you're doing this, remember what he did to your father. The screams and the splatter, oozing redwater over the chalk white floors. Never forget. Never forgive. His empire built on suffering souls, screams drowned out in the quest for progress.
