Liberals don't like anti-capitalism but they love anti-consumerism which is the victim blamers version of anti-capitalism

Voting is only the second most ineffective form of political action.

The first is whatever the fuck XR is doing.

@MoMartin I just realized that we don't teach kids much about unions because they'd use it against their own schools. You can't expel an entire class.

I watched a woman perform folk songs and she introduced one about her ambivalence about her mennonite vs Amish heritage and longing for a perhaps imaginary simplicity as "I grew up with electricity but I could have had a bonnet instead" and I feel this in my bones

the very bad times are over and it kind of feels like a denial of how bad they were

kinda feel like I shouldn't have been able to get out!

JUST SEEING ONE GIF OF JERI RYAN IN THE STAR TREK FANBAIT MOVIE HAS MADE ME TOO EMOTIONAL

dispatches from a friend who's at a bike cooperative/mobility justice conference in tijuana right now:

"i'm pretty sure the wall has some kind of mysterious radiation that makes me cry when i get too close to it. it turns out that the earth and sea and sky on one side of the wall and the earth and sea and sky on the other side of the wall are, ummmm
identical"

I really still love and am attached to the relationship between bruce banner and black widow that COULD have been depicted in avengers age of ultron. It COULD have been about the limits of guilt and self-blame! It could have been about memory and memorializing! It could have been about how hard it is to be both violent and vulnerable to violence! It could have been about choosing someone because they attack your weak point specifically and you see yourself as someone who needs a jailer!

and yet that is never what we get.

I'm still not over the way I barely got that in fanfiction, either, as well, though.

Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell people on the bus or train. Donate in your most racist and entitled relative's name and tell them you did it. :blobyeengrin:

CW for strong violence, images and videos of dead people, terrorism, generally upsetting stuff. Also very inspiring though, and if you're okay watching this sort of stuff, I highly recommend it so as to learn part of the important history they don't teach you in school.

I firmly believe concrete campaigns that can generate short-term wins are critical for growing a movement but also radicalising those sympathetic to our message.
