the ocean terrifies me. I can't think about it for more than 5 minutes without drowning in an indescribable sense of terror. I love it.

If you’ve saved enough food for yourself for a year, you can keep all your neighbors going for a few months

They will remember that, and when you get sick or break your leg, they’ll be there

You can’t do this alone AND YOU DONT NEED TO!

One of my friends, whose family survived a genocide, has a saying about survival “don’t learn how to make fire before you’ve learned how to make friends”

it is our job as white people to be aware of those in our community who are dangerous and point them out and/or confront them and their views

“diversity of tactics!” is never excuse to avoid criticism of a movements’ tactics.

Diversity of tactics means we see the value of many different initiatives being taken at the same time, we don’t pretend to have all the answers and we try not to get in each other’s way.

It doesn’t mean there are no bad tactics, or tactics that could become much better.
Debate on tactics should thrive. And if we still end up doing very different things, we do them better because we learned from each other.

Political Nihilism has never achieved anything and offers nothing to anyone. Likewise a "ruthless critique of everything existing" only achieves political inertia and smug satisfaction in armchair theorists as the world around them falls apart. How comfortable it is to criticise everyone else for trying to make the world a better place in which we find it, and how paralysing it must be to be afraid of having the same done to you. If you're not making mistakes you're not making anything.

Giving homeless folx shelter is three times cheaper than leaving them on the streets

calling for less shelter and housing for homeless folx is just calling for punishing people for being poor

hi everyone - a government that denies its prisoners the right to vote is a government that now has an extremely vested interest in jailing its political opposition.

Thank you to coming to this, the literal first class of Civics 101

It’s not flashy, but patience is one of the skills that unlocks everything you need in this life.

Practice it as much as you can.

I’m full of love and no one is gonna take that from me. Not the rich businessman or the law or anything. Let love be the last thing I cling to before I die. Because there’s no way I’ll give it up before that happens.

People shouldn't be paid for their work so much as they should just be paid. Work has very little to do with it. If you value your fellow human, keep them alive and help them be someone who can help others.

Oof. Im sleepin now. Tomorrow I’m gonna try to plant my lavender, do some assignments, and clean up *at least* in my bedroom.
