How U.S. cities are like “Brazilian nightclubs” with the exits blocked

bugoutblog:

If you’re an American living in a city right now, you are metaphorically living inside a crowded nightclub with the exits blocked. Most U.S. cities are impossible for the vast majority of the population to evacuate. Roads are too few and population numbers are too high (too dense).

Those Americans and Europeans who love their lands more than any others, and who put their families and their neighborhoods before all others, are normal people. Those who tell them that their attachments should be global and that their lands and neighborhoods belong to the whole world are sick and evil. — Srdja Trifkovic (via dunsanian)

Today is holocaust remembrance day. Today we remember those who died in this terrible genocide. Today we remember those who died because they were different. Today we remember those whose lives were stolen away from them. Let us from this day on learn to always be accepting of others no matter their religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. Today is the day were we learn to love each other. 

yeah, lets remember this as our society shits on non gay white males, on everyone who wants to be free from big brother’s intrusion into every aspect of our lives, on the yearly stripping of our rights and the right to defend ourselves from this happening again. yeah , let’s remember what a totalitarian unlimited government is capable of. and most of all lets remember all those whose lives where taken from them in these camps so brutally. this can happen here, can we also learn as well as remember and honor the fallen?

Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking; where it is absent, discussion is apt to become worse than useless. Tolstoy (via hattiewatson)

No man can be brave who thinks pain the greatest evil; nor temperate, who considers pleasure the highest good. Cicero (via mycolorbook)

This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty… The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. — St. George Tucker (via timlebsack)

I see an innumerable crowd of men, all alike and equal, turned in upon themselves in a restless search for those petty, vulgar pleasures with which they fill their souls. Each of them, living apart, is almost unaware of the destiny of all the rest. His children and personal friends are for him the whole of the human race; as for the remainder of his fellow citizens, he stands alongside them but does not see them; he touches them without feeling them; he exists only in himself and for himself; if he still retains his family circle, at any rate he may be said to have lost his country…

Above these men stands an immense and protective power which alone is responsible for looking after their enjoyments and watching over their destiny. It is absolute, meticulous, ordered, provident, and kindly disposed. It would be like a fatherly authority, if, fatherlike, its aims were to prepare men for manhood, but it seeks only to keep them in perpetual childhood; it prefers its citizens to enjoy themselves provided they have only enjoyment in mind. It works readily for their happiness but it wishes to be the only provider and judge of it. It provides their security, anticipates and guarantees their needs, supplies their pleasures, directs their principal concerns, manages their industry, regulates their estates, divides their inheritances. Why can it not remove them entirely from the bother of thinking and the troubles of life?

––Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1831

In sum, the most important fact about the Great Society under which we live is the enormous disparity between rhetoric and content. In rhetoric, America is the land of the free and the generous, enjoying the fused blessings of a free market tempered by and joined to accelerating social welfare, bountifully distributing its unstinting largesse to the less fortunate in the world. In actual practice, the free economy is virtually gone, replaced by an imperial corporate state Leviathan that organizes, commands, exploits the rest of society and, indeed, the rest of the world, for its own power and pelf. We have experienced, as Garet Garrett keenly pointed out over a decade ago, a “revolution within the form.” The old limited republic has been replaced by Empire, within and without our borders. Murray Rothbard (via conza)
