The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. - Ursula K Le Guin

On the newest episode of #ThisIsAmerica, we spoke with a member of @cooptulsaok about dual power projects in #Oklahoma and two antifascists from #Boise, #Idaho about how community members pushed back on the far-Right who threatened to shut down and attack local #Pride celebrations. We also roundup resistance news, direct action + anarchist events and do a deep dive on the news with analysis! itsgoingdown.org/this-is-ameri

There is no doubt Elizabeth II was one of the most bigoted and hateful people on the planet and enjoyed her status gained from wanton violence. This is just a fact.

The calls for us to be 'respectful' of her passing are wildly hypocritical because there was no such decency when it came to George Floyd, Breyonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Ahmaud Arbery, and the hundreds of regular folks routinely murdered by the state for no sensible reason.

There was no such decency for people who morally were saints compared to the darkness of what Elizabeth enabled and enjoyed.

I am not going to forget how much humanity and decency white people want for a literal monster but not for people that have been run over by an inhumane and murderous state.

Remember this moment because white people again are showing you what they are.

Progress is never permanent, will always be threatened, must be redoubled, restated, and reimagined if it is to survive. - Zadie Smith

re: us politics, transphobia, hell yeah 

"Opposing fascist attacks on marginalized groups should be our baseline collective response. When we stop fighting for people who are under siege, we are lost. Under such conditions, our enemies will thrive and they will cause a level of havoc and destruction that most of us have not yet imagined. So this is a good time to keep our priorities in order."

I got two new books in the mail:
- Midwest Foraging: 115 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Burdock to Wild Peach
- The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants

I’ve already found black walnuts, acorns, wild apples, and linden near me. I would like to find more neat things around the neighborhood.

When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water. ~ Benjamin Franklin

When I read more and more upcoming articles and studies about how the current climate crisis is depleting water levels in the West (USA), the more sad I get. The chances of me moving back home to Colorado are getting slimmer. 😞

So, there was more footage released about the Uvadle massacre and I didn’t think it was humanly possible for me to get angrier, but here we are…

You’re a “free thinker” but you also believe deeply bigoted and unhinged ideologies are now “the truth” because some bellends condensed them into pill based analogies they stole from two sisters who made a movie trilogy together.

And you insist people debate you?

Nah, mate. You’ve detailed every reason why absolutely no one should waste their precious time.

Liberals. For the last time. Seceding, renouncing your US citizenship, or boycotting the South won't help anyone.

Political strategy, disability 

Casual reminder that if your idea of a new world requires disabled people to die in order to accomplish your goal, that you are just another oppressor.

I can see the wheels turning. I can see the numbers being crunched in your head, wondering if it would be worth it. If anyone would even care. Knock it off.

Republican Congresswoman Mary Miller, to Trump: “I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday.”

You folks are really saying the quiet part out LOUD now, huh???
