malcontent of a disheveled youth

Hmm, well I never cared much for reality anyway.

Long time between posts but hey, I’ve realized that I am a leftist. In a purely libertarian society, the rich will always have the power and money to extrapolate further money from the poor, with the process continuing as the rich/poor gap widens. Without wealth redistribution, this will continue until the social elite possess all wealth and all power, and the masses of poor have nothing.

Socialism is a requirement for the continuation of society - wealth must exist in society (in communist states the wealth and power is limited to one potentially faltering body - market liberalism lets some companies pick up where others have fallen), as this wealth can be used to allow individual ideas to manifest in society, but this must be restrained

Social democracies allow for the continual generation of wealth, with continued redistribution to the masses. Today, the idea of market liberalism has shifted so far to the right that the rich/poor gap has widened more than ever in the past. The proliferation of the likes of Newscorp has changed the common ideologies/views of many, accepting this new social ‘norm’.

I don’t advocate complete sharing of resources in a communist state, but rather that the western world today is unsustainable and that humanity is suffering.

Action is needed :)

Hope that made sense :) just my own thoughts

Portraits of the World’s Most Deadly Snakes

Serpentine, The sensual attractiveness of snakes, which coexists with their threatening, unpredictable and mysterious nature is truly unique. This dichotomy, in which their beauty seems to be heightened by their danger, and vice-versa, is what I find so fascinating. Add to these contradictions the rich symbolism of serpents and you have a wonderfully compelling subject.

This is an awesome scene! It’s also probably the only time an e-mail forward (almost word-for-word) has been adapted into an episode of a major television series. :D

I’ll take my chances with the radical right-wingers up top.

Because Obama has totally just passed so many bills to ban guns nationally. Seriously. This is dramatic and inaccurate.

“I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.” - Barack Obama, September 2008.

“Now, I want you teabaggers out there to understand one thing: while you idolize the Founding Fathers and dress up like them, and smell like them, I think it’s pretty clear that the Founding Fathers would have hated your guts. And what’s more, you would’ve hated them. They were everything you despise. They studied science, read Plato, hung out in Paris, and thought the Bible was mostly bullshit.” — Bill Maher.
But you don’t have to take Maher’s word for it, take history’s word for it. The Founding Fathers were liberal elites.
