This is a wonderful little article written by a successful prostitute.
She has a lot of good points regarding the sex industry and shows some good reasons why we need legalization of prostitution, but I must admit my favorite part was this: Fifth lesson I learned: Most guys aren’t these evil bastards that women tend to make them out to be.
…and remember, she’s talking about the kinds of guys who hire prostitutes.
This is a wonderful article about the human need to submit and obey, and how these desires can lead us dangerously astray. The concepts in this article do a wonderful job of explaining a few of the reasons why I’m an anarchist and why I feel massive authority figures are rarely going to be beneficial in the long run.
Wikipedia entry on a government plot to commit phony terrorism. This is the stuff y’all are supporting when you support your government.
I remember in high school someone spoke about drugs at an assembly and told a story about a friend who took his first hit of marijuana, thought he could fly, and jumped off the roof to his death, and somehow we all bought it. I can’t help but wonder what motivates people to give out such dramatic misinformation or how they can justify making a mockery of people who have actually died from drugs.
I’m sure as hell not trying to imply that Mitt Romney is a better choice, so please don’t misunderstand me, but this article clearly demonstrates how Obama is not fit to be president. He’s not only going against the wishes of the majority of the American population, the fact that he is attacking sick and dying patients and trying to take away the medicine they need to lead normal lives clearly shows that he does not have the common human decency necessary to be a good leader.
This is a fascinating look at religion in politics and the weird system we’ve created where people claim to believe all this crazy stuff, but then don’t act on it or put any real faith in it. I think the number of people who actually believe in God in the United States is quite low and when people argue for religion, they are trying to convince themselves more than anyone else.
This was right across town from me and I can’t believe I missed it. This is a great speech about many issues in the anarchist movement, such as her point about how we need to start depicting a vision of how society might function without laws and government and what it would look like instead of merely attacking the problems of our current society. (This is something I wish to correct in my own works.)
anarchiststudies.org is the site she speaks about near the beginning.
People try to tell me that police brutality and torture in prison is just a matter of weeding a few bad apples out of our criminal justice system. I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who recognizes the fallacy of this perspective and the fact that torture and brutality are standard procedure among police and prison systems. These scenes come from prisons that have given up their security videos. Just imagine what happens when they turn the cameras off.
Obama has now thoroughly lost my vote. I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but why would he ignore a question that the overwhelming majority of people want answered unless he had been bought by the pharmaceutical and/or alcohol companies and/or the military industrial complex? What motivation would he possibly have for disrespecting the American people like that?
