God first threw humanity into Sin in order to create the opportunity for saving it through Christ’s sacrifice; the Absolute plays a game with itself - it first separates itself from itself, introduces a gap of self-misrecognition, in order to reconcile itself with itself again. This is why today’s desperate neoconservative attempts to reassert “old values”are also ultimately a failed perverse strategy of imposing prohibitions that can no longer be taken seriously.

you dont have to agree with his policies but you have to admit hes the coolest president weve had ever

Nah he still a shit president

I disagree. I dont think anyone that behaves as he does is a “cool” person. President or otherwise, if you try to steal my rights, my money, my freedom, or the lives and same of others I dont think you’re cool even if you do tell jokes and play games. I think hes a liar. Hes a thief. He is the worst possible type of leader. I firmly believe he should be put in jail, not praised because he made you laugh.

Since when does a militarily occupied people have responsibility for a peace movement?

if you demean women in favor of men, you are not feminist. you are misogynist. 

if you demean men in favor of women, you are not feminist. you are misandrist. 

if you are in favor of treating men and women equally, you are feminist.

it’s that simple.

No. Egalitarian.

Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukrainians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a ‘Great Leap Forward’ that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children.

In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy’s mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state’s mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous.

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.
Henry David Thoreau (via timlebsack)
Anarchists are not opposed to leadership in the sense of individuals who guide or direct other people. What Anarchists oppose are fixed positions of hierarchical authority in organisations in which the leaders are separate from the membership and elevated above the membership in terms of power. Anarchists seek temporary positions of leadership based upon the circumstances and the abilities of members of the group. An Anarchist instance of leadership would be that when a car breaks down it seems that the mechanic in the car should lead the repair of the car and instruct other members of the group towards actions which help the car become fixed, such as instructing people to pass them tools as they work. As Bakunin puts it “I receive and I give - such is human life. Each directs and is directed in his turn. Therefore there is no fixed and constant authority, but a continual exchange of mutual, temporary, and, above all, voluntary authority and subordination.”
