If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.
Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.
So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.
This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.

I feel kind of ridiculous about getting like this, but a couple of days ago I was reading a story (linked on tumblr) about a sexual assault and I’m usually fine and just end up having my faith in humanity crushed a little bit more but It really really got to me and it’s been majorly distracting me ever since. 

I just feel… so upset about it, like, viscerally upset. Not only about the incident but about the reactions. The idea that unless you kick and scream and fight, and deny him until you’re dead or unconscious, the moment you give in, they will say that you consented.

The moment you stop saying no or stop resisting, no matter how many times you said it prior and he ignored you, demonstrating the futility of saying it, No matter how many times you pulled away and he pulled you back, demonstrating the futility of trying to win in a contest of strength, the moment you stop, they will say you consented. 

There is no amount of times you can say no or pull away that will prevent them from saying you consented, so long as you stop even once, ever.

And he will swear that he would have stopped if you really had wanted him to and no one will call him out for all the times you did. Because you stopped.

The burden of “resistance” in these cases is literally nearly impossible to reach. There’s no way to win. 

Anyway it really got to me and I finally have to write this out. Just to have said it , I guess. Hope I can kick this and get back to focusing. I have crazy chapters to finish before the end of the month or mine shall be the shortest freelance career ever.

gotta love your nurses, people.

I think there’s a Facebook group that made t-shirts along the lines of “Be kind to nurses. They keep doctors from killing you.” My mom was a nurse for over 40 years.

Magic could never stay secret, tho

I kind of feel like it’s incredible, in the sense of being literally not credibly realistic, that magic is even the littlest bit secret at all, no matter how strenuously the wizarding authorities want to keep it that way, and no matter what they are willing to do to keep it that way.

Like, you could not keep a secret with that many people in on it. There must be muggleborns who go back to tell their families, hell there are probably muggleborns who are fucking driven to get the word out. Maybe a family member senselessly died of an injury or disease that could have been easily cured with magic, and then they get invited into this whole other world and find out that these people have been sitting on that shit the whole time because….?????!

I would actually read the hell out of a story that focused on that muggleborn and their struggle to force the two worlds to meld.

And back to my main point, there won’t just be one person. With 7 fucking billion people in the world, there will, will have been, and will be, at least thousands of these people, and something has inevitably got to give at some point.

All the ministries of magic all over the world (even accepting the ridiculous proposition that every nation’s ministry believes in the need for secrecy), are simply, inevitably, going to miss something.

And they will not see the internet coming. The people who can’t wrap their heads around rubber ducks, will not understand it or grasp how dangerous it is to their secrecy until they have no secrecy left to protect.

I know someone must have said all this before me and said it better, but I saw a post on my dash earlier and It just got me thinking.

WHO IS THIS YOUNG MAN I MUST KNOW

That is Luke Pasqualino

Started watching The Musketeers yesterday, and I have come to the conclusion that Luke is the cutest and hottest D’artagnan to date, so say we all.

*speechless*

MY GOD.

A black teenager could have a 200 IQ and find the cure for cancer and white people will still say affirmative action is the reason why they got into college

A white kid could have a 200 IQ and discover the cure for cancer and people will say his alumni daddy is the reason he got into college.

A white person will see a post having nothing to do with them and still find a way to include themselves

i like how the issue here is “my significant achievements and academic excellence are never truly considered valid because of my race” vs “my dad has too much money and power its embarrassing”
