Madam Chancellor! We are writing to you from the southernmost point of Europe as representatives of the Philosophical School of Pythagoras. We are concerned that exactly 100 years after the beginning of the First World War, the world once again stands on the brink of World War. Germany knows all too well what price has to be played in this case. At the beginning of the 21st century Germany has initiated the construction of a united Europe on the basis of good-neighborhood and cultural and economic cooperation. Today Germany is a symbol of peace and stability in Europe. It is no coincidence that in Germany a chancellor is a woman. Women have the ability to solve problems peacefully and are able to take care of things holistically as a good house-mistress in her home. You, Ms....

Leopoldo, Hoy siento una tristeza inmensa y me visita el llanto; es mucho el tiempo con este sentimiento por mi país y su gente, por los estudiantes, por los líderes, por los presos políticos, por ti. Pero al mismo tiempo tu ejemplo de lucha me fortalece, crece mi Esperanza y mi Fe, siento que puedo dar mis pasos con más fuerza, convicción y resistencia que antes. La salida está cada vez más cerca y tu salida también. Tu entrega me cambio, cambio a la venezolana, a la esposa y a la madre. Cambio la historia y cambio el presente de Venezuela. Los venezolanos estamos presos contigo Leopoldo, de tu mano todos los días construyendo coraje, como te escribió Simonovis. Siento el compromiso con cada noticia, esta es mi lucha también, la de todos los venezolanos. Tengo unas ganas enormes de...

Dear Kennedy Stewart, I am writing to ask you to stand up for the rights of Canadians, and oppose Bill C-23, the so-called "Fair Elections Act." This bill thwarts democracy in many ways, but I believe the worst part is the new Amercian-style voter ID laws that are being brought in. The Act would end the use of vouching to establish a voter's identity, as well as abolishing the use of voter ID cards from Elections Canada as way to prove one's identity. This will make it more difficult for Canadians to vote, especially those living in poverty. Under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, all Canadian citizens have the right to vote. This right is subject to reasonable limits under Section 1, but the restrictions that would be imposed by Bill C-23 are not justified. If a voter...

Dear Mr Cameron As your ministers and officials gather for the “Cobra” security meeting today in the wake of the hacking to death of a soldier in Woolwich, South East London, please consider this. As the shock of the incident begins to wear away, this is a wake-up moment for you, your Government and the country. It is simply not good enough to punish the men responsible by housing them in one of Her Majesty’s Hotels with free board and lodging. This is terrorism. You need to display courage and determination in responding to this horrific killing of an off-duty soldier. The images of the blood-stained assassin cleaver-wielding without remorse have shocked us all. This is now the time to consider the reinstatement of the death penalty. Please ask your Cobra colleagues to think about it...

This is an open letter to Mr. David Burrowes, Conservative MP, in relation to a false story he told in Parliament in an effort to strengthen his argument against the gay marriage bill. Mr. Burrowes, You mentioned me in a partly falsified story you told in Parliament today, May 20th 2013. I am one of the people who called the police in Cambridge on Friday May 17th because there was a member of UKIP loudly preaching on the street that gay people are "disgusting". However, in Parliament, you mistold the story in an effort to argue that the freedom of speech of people holding "traditional views" is being affected even before the gay marriage bill is passed. I realise that you weren't at the occurrence, but even so, that is no excuse for telling an almost completely falsified story in...

Dear Mr Davey As you know from reading the papers, the scientific journals, and no doubt from your press briefers, for the first time in human history, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has passed 400 parts per million. Doesn’t sound much does it? The last time such levels were seen on earth was before human history: the Arctic had no ice, sea levels were 40 times higher than now, and lush savannah plains spread across what is now the Sahara desert. You have seen warnings of this before, so we know that unless we curtail the burning of gas, oil and coal, the temperature level of the planet will rise above 2 degrees. That’s the level where catastrophic environmental consequences will be triggered. The International Energy Agency has said that on current emission...

To Jon Carson and the people at BarakObama.com including the President of the United States if he is actually involved with this coalition of criminals against America. Please take note. I did not ask to be on your mailing list and I do not support your socialist agenda or your attempt to dismantle the constitution. As a Veteran I took upon myself an oath to protect the constitution with my life. Your attempts to usurp the right to bear arms is a clear violation of the second amendment of the US Constitution. Because of these actions, I can no longer support the president nor his agenda. Our country needs to be healed not torn asunder. Please do not ask me to be a part of any more of your petitions or calls to action. I have become very disillusioned by the attempts of our...

Dear Mr Wilson You are clearly a clever guy. Congratulations on perfecting, testing and successfully firing the world’s first plastic gun, “The Liberator” that can be constructed using a 3D printer. I understand that your plan is to upload the plans to the Internet so that anyone with access to a 3D printer can download them, for free, and make the Liberator. Why? DefDis is a non-profit company, and I guess I should applaud your altruism and willingness to share your ingenuity with anyone and everyone. But therein lays the problem. Anyone and everyone cannot be guaranteed to make the gun as a hobby project (rather like making a scaled plastic kit model of a plane, ship, or even a replica gun). I understand that you have an idea that by making your weapon (is it not a weapon?)...

Dear Mr Clegg Ouch! That hurt didn’t it? Did you really not see that one coming? The 2 May local council elections and the Parliamentary by-election must have been like a punch in the guts and a bloody nose combined. Your party’s results were appalling. Your Lib Dem candidate even came seventh in the South Shields Parliamentary by-election, and you lost your deposit. Your candidate only polled a few a little more votes than the Monster Raving Loony Party candidate. Your candidate was beaten by the abhorrent British National Party. Tattoos and shaven heads win over suits and syrup. The council election results are coming in and it looks like yet more drubbing for your party. Admittedly, your coalition colleagues, the Conservatives, did not do very well either, but they can at least...

Dear Justice Scalia as well as your distinguished peers serving on the Supreme Court, First let me thank you for hearing the historic cases this week on California’s Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). My husband, Kelly Vielmo, and I adopted three beautiful siblings from DC’s foster care system last year. Being an inter-racial, same-sex family we are used to being conspicuous and sometimes the center of attention on a local level depending on where we happen to be. With the cases being heard in the Supreme Court this week our family is now on debate at the national level. With that said I am following with interest your ruling on these cases. One comment that stuck with me was the speculation of potential “deleterious” effects of kids having same-sex parents....
