A Palestinian boy defies the Israeli forces on friday after they prevented him from praying in Al-Aqsa Mosque so he prayed in front of them on the asphalt.

طفل فلسطيني يغيظ جنود الإحتلال ويصلي أمامهم على الإسفلت بعد أن قاموا بمنعه من الصلاة داخل المسجد الأقصى 

Fucking hero.

No. You can pray at home etc. Just because you pray does not make you a hero, no one really attacks kids anyway.

Like seriously, shut the fuck up. 

Does anyone else over the age of 16 still hide in bathroom stalls when they want to be alone and don’t have a place?

This time of the semester is hell. Divorce is hell. Anxiety has sloshed over into boredom and a general distaste for talking to other humans (besides Daddy!).

i’m very, very tired of people that are so damaged that they can’t trust anyone, or have no empathy skills, or can’t hold a conversation, etc. The Buddhist in me knows they’re suffering, and i know it’s, by and large, not their fault. It’s sadness. But right now, it’s also a personal frustration.

Supply-side economics, ushered in by Reagan and the trickle down villains of the Right Wing, creates billionaires at the expense of running a country for the other 300 million residents. 
It’s time to end the supply-side failure and start governing for the entire country, fixing the infrastructure, providing a strong safety net, taking care of the seniors, taking care of the veterans, and create demand in our economy by focusing on the middle classes. #demand_side_economics

Ernst Haeckel

Not only was Ernst a Haeckel of an artist, he was a brilliant biologist and naturalist as well. 

Side note: I have business cards, for some unknown reason, and there’s a Haeckel illustration on the back of each one.

"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth. Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.   …. Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful. The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.  ….
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything. This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”

If complaints were kindling, our generation would have a bonfire going. We will likely see slower economic growth, more unemployment and greater inequality than our parents. For all the social progress, retrograde attitudes remain powerful. The government feels more and more an extension of the free market, rather than a bulwark against it. And global warming, still denied by large swaths of the population, threatens not just economic growth, but also ecological collapse. Our current course could cause the earth to warm by as many as six degrees Celsius, which would create millions of refugees, stir up conflict and dramatically increase the incidence of natural disasters.

Why, then, have we not launched a sustained, revolutionary movement to wrest back control and set us on a better course? The most prominent movement, Occupy Wall Street, produced much in the way of slogans. But compared with the Tea Party or the leftist movements of the ’40s and ’60s, it has done little to change policy.

Here are three reasons we have not seen a revolution, even though it’s sorely needed:

Money has become political power.

A significant part of this “new story” should be devoted to eliminating the need to work to justify and/or “earn” our existence and to the blunting of money as a manifestation of power.

In other words, the end of the Idea of economy.
