First, They Shot the Anarchists: Trump and ‘The New Normal’ - IT'S GOING DOWN
Thus, the message becomes clear: spray paint a swastika on someone’s house, beat up an immigrant, be an elected Republican official and openly call for another “Kent State” to put the youth in their place, shoot an anti-fascist at a Milo event, chant “Trump” as coded racial slur at your school, vandalize or kill people at a Mosque, and the State could give a fuck. Why should it? Such violence always stabilizes a regime because it reinforces the very same hierarchies it seeks to uphold and defend.

However, if you shut down an airport against the State’s executive orders, a pipeline it is trying to ram through your land, shut down a fascist rally by an editor of the website your chief advisor used to run, well, we’ve got a problem. That’s the exception.

19 Batshit Moments In "Mad Max: Fury Road" We Can’t Stop Talking About
HC: I love how this was the film George Miller did at 70. HELLO, THIS IS THE FILM I MADE. I can’t wait for the next installment when George Miller is like 90 years old. If he waited until he was 70 to give us this, imagine 90.

TP: When he’s 90 it will be just like this, except in space and all the dialogue is in an invented language and the actual cinema is on fire while you watch it.

Django Unchained, or, The Help: How “Cultural Politics” Is Worse Than No Politics at All, and Why
Over time, the idea that a “left” is defined by commitment to a vision of social transformation and substantive program for realizing it has receded from cultural memory. Being on the left has become instead a posture, an identity, utterly disconnected from any specific practical commitments.

A Trans Girl Out West: On Transitioning, Community, and Even Cowgirls Bleed
From the department chair at a women’s college to a large social media following on Twitter and Tumblr, these leaders tend to gravitate towards positions of power. They know all the answers to society’s problems. They often promise support in exchange for compliance with their beliefs. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing – power is necessary in order to push for change and maintain a stable community. But control can be a very dangerous tool. In the wrong hands, it can be used to silence other trans women, and ignore the ways in which our lives contrast with one another.

I guess I just like liking things, naamahdarling: “Acceptance” as a part of...
Acceptance is a realistic assessment of where you are and a willingness to begin from there. It is a recognition that old patterns, whether positive or negative, cannot or do not have to continue.

Ask Polly: Why Should I Keep Going? -- The Cut
The cold glass of water after a long run. The hot bath after hours of digging through the dirt. The satisfaction of writing a good sentence, a good paragraph. You MUST feel these things, because these aren't small rewards on the path to some big reward; these tiny things are everything.

An Antidote to the Age of Anxiety: Alan Watts on Happiness and How to Live with Presence
The “primary consciousness,” the basic mind which knows reality rather than ideas about it, does not know the future. It lives completely in the present, and perceives nothing more than what is at this moment. The ingenious brain, however, looks at that part of present experience called memory, and by studying it is able to make predictions. These predictions are, relatively, so accurate and reliable (e.g., “everyone will die”) that the future assumes a high degree of reality — so high that the present loses its value.
