some malaphors I think about:
-we'll burn that bridge when we get to it
-if you can't stand the bull, get out of the china shop
-where there's smoke, there's mirrors
-fool me once, shame on you; teach a man to fool me, and I'll be fooled for the rest of my life
-come back to haunt you in the ass
-lets not beat around the dead horse
-beauty is in the eye of the tiger
-burning daylight at both ends
-apples to apples, dust to dust
-a stone in the hand is worth two birds in the bush
Just a reminder that tech companies move heaven and earth to keep children from seeing boobs, but pretend like deplatforming queerphobes, supremacists, and literal nazis is an unassailable technical challenge.
At one point the internet was literally mostly porn, and it's still way harder to filter porn than fash stuff. The decision to let fascism proliferate on the internet was an intentional decision, for god's sake quit giving the techbros who made these decisions ANY benefit of the doubt. Look at the ugly ugly truth, stare it in the face, it's good for healing from gaslighting. The internet doesn't suck, techbros suck.
Do you feel the least suffering by letting events unfold as you observe them, or do you feel the least suffering by taking actions to alleviate the suffering of yourself and others in the face of world events?
My family on my dad's side is Jewish, and the lesson I got there was you either just sit and wait for the Nazis to take you, or you take every single action you can before that time comes.

Veganism will not be successful as a consumer movement, and in order for animal liberation to work, vegans must work to abolish capitalism.
With that being said, the anti-capitalist is going to be quite unsuccessful in their goals if they justify exploitation, murder, and a property relationship with other sentient beings.
That, is what makes veganism effective and revolutionary, not because it drives down the demand of animal products, but because it allows you to see living, feeling, sentient beings like yourself as comrades and worthy of life and love, not as your property.

I'm beginning work on a new series dealing with the colonization of the Americas, and the worship of prominent American historical figures, who will be represented by their own words and actions. The pieces will be graphic design/collage pieces ranging from fairly simplistic like those below to more complex.
Literally NOBODY becomes a cop to actually help ppl. Nobody. You become a social worker, a teacher, a fire fighter, a care taker, a nurse, a doctor, a sanitation worker, an organizer etc. You become a cop for power and control. If you’ve ever dreamed of bullying ppl, beating your wife, being the judge/jury/executioner with complete impunity, you want to be a cop.
