Facing an increasingly polarized American society, we thought of the idea of providing users with articles presenting varying perspectives on a particular topic (ex: communism). We believe that this encourages civil discussion among users and help them gain a much more nuanced and comprehensive understanding of a particular societal issue, contributing to the spread of knowledge among the public.
What it does
It allows users to post their thoughts on featured articles. Users also have the option of responding to the posts of other users.

Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of being able to fetch article content from Wikipedia and provide a corresponding image that corresponds to the article. We were able to provide succinct article previews for the user in the webpage.
