poetic politix

:flash: bush reported dead – he looks dead to me.

:flash: missie w. on Chernobyl – “I don’t remember much about my childhood except that I loved reading books under my blanket, that my brother always had the best C64 games and the stupidest haircuts, that my mum cooked the best lasagna on earth, that my dad looked like Don Camillo and that he was the Easter Bunny. You can’t deny it any longer. I’ve seen you hiding chocolate Easter eggs in the garden when I was 5. Yes. However, I do remember spring 1986. I had just turned 7 and it was the last spring before I entered primary school. Near the end of April, something terrible happened in a place east of us, a country I’ve never even heard of before. I remember my mum talking to other mums about whether it was still safe to drink milk and to let the children play outside. I was a child who detested the outside world anyway. I preferred to stay at home and read ghost and witch stories. So when my mum told my brother and me that we should better stay indoors for a while, I was instantly filled with much glee.”

:flash: The Ultimate Fighting Anarchist – “I’m not some sort of conspiracy theorist. I’m not talking about how the government is trying to hide UFOs. I just want to do away with hierarchy. I’m saying that our economic system, capitalism, is structured so that it only benefits a small percentage of very wealthy people. When I was traveling in Brazil, they had us staying at a really posh hotel. Outside the hotel there was a mom sleeping on the sidewalk with her two kids. That’s when reality hits you. What did that woman ever do? Who did she ever hurt?”
