Heart weeps.
Head tries to help heart.
Head tells heart how it is, again:
You will lose the ones you love. They will all go. But even the earth will go, someday.
Heart feels better, then.
But the words of head do not remain long in the ears of heart.
Heart is so new to this.
I want them back, says heart.
Head is all heart has.
Help, head. Help heart.
— Lydia Davis (via maxistentialist)

This is a collection of Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson. 

And if this shit doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.

I really wish all the dystopian SF stuff I read as a kid would stop coming true.

The man-made-world is a condensation of the imagination; It’s the spillover and rendering of our dreams before our very eyes… and as our technical proficiency accelerates, bootstrapping on its own complexity, we are shrinking the buffer time between what we conjure up in our minds and our ability to instantiate it in front of our eyes, and this whole phenomenon is part of our ongoing evolution.

  • expectation: capitalism breeds competition which encourages companies to work hard to provide the best possible product / service to the american people!
  • reality: capitalism breeds greed which encourages companies to make the biggest possible profit at the lowest possible costs, which results in planned obsolescence, exportation of manufacturing jobs, use of exploitative and abusive labor, flouting laws and regulations, complete disregard for human safety / needs / emotions, and an overall shitty and toxic society that forces people to either play the game or die
