Tumblr Image of the Week



Feminismus: Körperbeschimpfung als Kampfmittel – “Frauen, die sich öffentlich äußern, schlägt viel Hass entgegen. Doch warum wird gerade jetzt das Klischee der hässlichen Emanze wiederbelebt?”

#watch and

How did Hitler rise to power? – “Decades after the fall of the Third Reich, it feels impossible to understand how Adolf Hitler, the tyrant who orchestrated one of the largest genocides in human history, could ever have risen to power in a democratic country.”

Barack Obama Singing F*** Donald Trump – “Oh, he mad. Tweet this to @realDonaldTrump and let him know how you feel.”


Music DNA – “what if I took a song and mapped its frequencies in a dial? The whole song would equate to 360° and each slice of the song’s “pie” would be coloured up according to the active frequencies at that point in the song.”

American Horror Story @pennyred – “I went backstage at the biggest political show on earth- and found America telling stories about itself.”

Chelsea Manning faces charges, solitary confinement after suicide attempt – “Serving 35 years for leaking secrets to WikiLeaks, she was being investigated for resisting guards, prohibited property and threatening conduct charge”

Anarchist Summer Camp 2016 – “The anarchist camp 2016 aims to bring together people and to strengthen the cooperation within the left and anarchist movement across borders. An alternative society free of domination cannot be simply learned from books – it has to be tried out in real life.”

Bad Moon Rising @pennyred – “Here we are in the desert of moderate liberalism. The storm has hit, and nobody was prepared.”

Dischord Records on bandcamp – Dischord Records has released their back catalogue on bandcamp.

Statement re: @ioerror – “The investigation is now complete. Many people inside and outside the Tor Project have reported incidents of being humiliated, intimidated, bullied and frightened by Jacob, and several experienced unwanted sexually aggressive behavior from him. Some of those incidents have been shared publicly, and some have not. The investigation also identified two additional people as having engaged in inappropriate conduct, and they are no longer involved with the Tor Project.”

Orlan loses plagiarism case against Lady Gaga – “Paris’s High Court has rejected the ensemble of claims of plagiarism and infringement of image rights that the French “carnal artist” Orlan brought against the American pop star Lady Gaga in June 2013 over the cover art for the musician’s 2011 album Born This Way and the music video for its eponymous single”

Pirate Bay Founder: The ‘Piracy’ Scene Needs Innovation – “Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde says that the “piracy” scene needs more innovation if it wants to sustain itself. In the wake of the KickassTorrents shutdown, he argues that the current ecosystem relies too heavily on a few large sites. More decentralization is the key to solve this vulnerability.”

Have Fears of Terrorism in 2016 Made the World Crazy? – “Many of us simply don’t understand the world anymore. It will probably be up to the historians of future generations to accurately categorize what exactly it is that we’re experiencing in these times of transition.”

New mayor of Turin, Italy, wants her city to go vegetarian – “The promotion of vegetarian and vegan diets throughout the municipality as an fundamental act that will protect the environment, health, and animals through awareness-building actions on the ground.” And now discuss, please.

Laurie Penny | Life-Hacks of the Poor and Aimless – “Late Capitalism is as good an excuse of any for not getting out of bed, but huddling under the covers worrying about Donald Trump is a very inefficient way of sticking it to the man.”


Terrorismus: Die Falle ist gestellt – “Was durch die Anschläge provoziert werden soll, ist – vermutlich – die in Reaktion auf solche Untaten vollzogene De-facto-Feinderklärung des Westens gegen alle Muslime, insbesondere gegen die, die in den westlichen Gesellschaften leben. Ist sie erst einmal erfolgt, kann der IS auf Millionen von Unterstützern rechnen, und er wäre damit seinem Ziel einer großen und umfassenden Konfrontation zwischen Islam und Westen einen entscheidenden Schritt näher gekommen. Es gibt ihn also auch in den neuen Formen des Terrorismus, den “als interessiert unterstellten Dritten”. Aber er wird nicht mehr direkt adressiert, sondern soll durch die Reaktion der Angegriffenen erst geschaffen werden. Es bedarf einer klugen, langfristig angelegten und für alle nachvollziehbaren Gegenstrategie, um nicht in diese Falle hineinzutappen.”
