“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Let the Circular Firing Squad Begin or, a Lie in the Form of the Truth

“Obama is failing me. He has failed to be the cartoon superhero I fantasize him to be. Therefore he must be destroyed. I don't care if the extreme right gets in—in fact, this would be good for us. Give us a good kicking. Then the revolution could begin. I refuse to vote in 2012. He shouldn't have passed that weak health care reform: nothing would have been better than something, because nothing makes me feel justifiably angry, and it's always good to have reasons to be angry. He should have shouted and pounded the table and gotten angry, just like my fantasy. For me, Change You Can Believe In meant Abandon All Inhibitions Here, Your Fantasy Black Friend has Arrived. He let me down. We should hand the reins to the right wing in 2012 by any means necessary.”
