The US is not better than any other country it's just rich and if you're white or lucky you can participate in that wealth but the only reason it would suck to live elsewhere is because the US Empire and Friends have fucked that place over to enrich itself

Fuck this modern empire that coopted the liberatory struggle of a colony to turn it into a coaling station populated by hundreds of thousands of people.

Fuck this country that leaves clowns and buffoons in formal charge of us while superseding them with unelected bureaucrats and then asks us to tie ourselves to the rotting husk of our owner.

Fuck this country that even now is doing its very best to keep Puerto Rico from having any control at all, on any level, over its future.

Hope that despite COVID, my American friends are able to still celebrate today in true American fashion: unloading two assault rifles into the air while balls-deep in a prize hog.

I don't care much about your political ideology, leaning or correctness. If you are proud, unkind, greedy, unwilling to learn or resort to violence you are very likely to replace the oppressors and not end oppression.
Solidarity and bitterness never intersect. One would either learn to be compassionate or fall prey to Bakunin's prophecy.

I keep seeing people trying to clarify that we shouldn’t be mad at the maskless people going out to party at bars or going to eat at fucking olive garden or whatever but instead at the government for failing its handling of everything and like...

no, actually, I’m capable of being mad at both simultaneously, turns out both groups are in the wrong on this one so I won’t be following your guidance on this one, but thanks for your input anyways!

The fact that he could explain the evolution of altruism as a trait meant the trait itself was never pure, as in that altruism couldn’t ever be entirely unselfish.Price was so unsatisfied with this damning conclusion and set out to prove himself wrong. science.thewire.in/the-science twitter.com/thewire_in/status/ #India #Election

So uh.

A coworker of mine Tuesday was in a bad mood and raving about how she had found out two of our coworkers “didn’t have papers” and kept saying she was going to call ICE because “everyone speaking Spanish is illegal.”

So I reported her to our supervisor that day and I had the next day off.

She got fired on my day off.

Bye bitch.

Hundreds of people got away with destroying cop cars, precincts, and corporate property. The system isn't all powerful, much less all-seeing.

If a white man wants to lynch me, that's his problem. If he's got the power to lynch me, that's my problem. Racism is not a question of attitude; it's a question of power. Racism gets its power from capitalism. Thus, if you're anti-racist, whether you know it or not, you must be anti-capitalist. The power for racism, the power for sexism, comes from capitalism, not an attitude.

— Stokely Carmichael

Where most people see tragedy and suffering, some see a political opportunity to be built on more tragedy and suffering.
