 Moai, Easter Island. Carved by the Rapa Nui people, the monolithic sculptures were made between 1250 and 1500. Scientist still are not sure how the giant figures were made and brought here

I love this quote. I love this movie.

This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.

Still one of my favorite lines from a movie ever.

A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed. We are one planet. One of the great revelations of the age of space exploration is the image of the earth finite and lonely, somehow vulnerable, bearing the entire human species through the oceans of space and time.

HHHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

Romney vs. Sandy

groundbreaking idea

maybe it’s not the puppet’s (obama) fault the country/world is in the state it is.

change yourself

change our rapist/mysogynistic/patriarchal/elitist/hubris-centered culture

then change the world

maybe we’re burgeoning on a new age of globality, and America needs to just sit the fuck down and stop being so fucking conceited. We’re like 37th in life expentancy, and our only credit is our military might which I think is hindering progress rather than spurning it.

IMO a puppet’s 4 years in office in which he bends to corporate interests and does very little real, meaningful, government infrastructural change has little effect on the state of the global economy much less our national economy . Not to mention his pandering sensationalism which presents him more akin to a hollywood celebrity.

Our economy is in the shitter because the world isn’t what it was 100 years ago. People without a profession or career can’t just go and work at ‘the factories’ or ‘the fields’. Manual labor isn’t needed but we’re terrible overpopulated and if you look around most people aren’t that smart and can really only work in a manual labor field. Overpopulation and the changing nature of society is what is hurting the economy (mixed with our outmoded educational system and all that jazz)

he literally is a puppet

I’m basing this on his signing the NDAA which he claimed he would not effectively nulling the bill of rights and declaring the entire globe a battlefield for the ‘war on terror’ (which is actually just a war on the world so that america can retain its post-WW2 economic authority). Expanding Gitmo’s powers when he campaigned on a platform in which he promised to close the place entirely.

but he’s a puppet I prefer to the Christian-mongering War Hawk that sits facing him.

If Romney takes office it will spell the deaths of many Iranians as well as other places. Romney 2012 is really scary for intelligent people who don’t want to see the Earth ruled with an iron fist under one social paradigm.

I’m so out of patience with Christianity as a whole because let’s be honest here that is what is splitting the nation in half in terms of social political opinions. The Bible comes from a time in which the smartest person back then knew less about the universe than the average 5 year old child knows today. I’m talkin’ about germs, cells, gravity, astronomy, medicine, REAL SHIT like that. 

and then there’s the whole trend of christian teachings essentially being a slave propogation system, ruthlessly sexist, and stagnant in terms of progress

A tragedy that need never have happened because let us remember that the whole invasion of Iraq was based on lies. There never was a connection with 9/11. There never was a connection with terrorism. There were no ‘weapons of mass destruction’. All complete and utter lies, told knowingly and cynically. The direct consequences of those lies lives on now in the deformed babies of Fallujah. They are part of the Bush legacy that no-one should ever forget.

yes then maybe america will listen

Generation Y.

  • Receptionist: Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
  • Me: Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
  • Receptionist: Isn't it the same?
  • Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lost its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
