I’ve lived so little that I tend to imagine I’m not going to die; it seems improbable that human existence can be reduced to so little; one imagines, in spite of oneself, that sooner or later something is bound to happen. A big mistake. A life can just as well be both empty and short. The days slip by indifferently, leaving neither trace nor memory; and then all of a sudden they stop.
Michel Houellebecq (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

I’m genuinely curious as to whether or not the people who are against the “anti-rape nail polish” because it doesn’t directly address rape culture would be against police wearing cameras for the same reason: It doesn’t address the root causes of police brutality (racism and the like), so obviously there’s no possibility of it reducing police brutality.

More proof that Paul Ryan is a despicable human being.

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”
