“The idea that this deeply dysfunctional, chaotic, anarchic state called the United States of America has anything at all to teach the rest of us as to how we should organize our societies is not just absurd, it is deeply offensive.” — George Galloway

  1. You can watch hundreds of guys injuring themselves that way on YouTube, just search for “FAIL ARMY”… the movie Idiocracy satirized society’s obsession with watching movies of men smashing their balls, LOL

  2. I find it quite difficult to engage with most people in u.s. now and that’s a problem. Of course, I can do it, but to be intimate…not speaking romantically, but to be real and that’s the only way I feel. The intimacy is in differing levels and layers, but it would still be defined as such. Anyway, I personally don’t know anyone anymore I can be completely honest with unless it would be online and it’s sad.

  3. “The yearning for positivism that pervades our corporate culture ignores human nature and human history. But to challenge it, to state the obvious fact that things are getting worse, and may soon get much worse, is to be tossed out of the circle of magical thinking that defines American and much of Western culture. The left is as infected with this mania for hope as the right. It is a mania that obscures reality even as global capitalism disintegrates and the ecosystem unravels, potentially dooming us all.””As global capitalism disintegrates, the heresy our corporate masters fear is gaining currency. But that heresy will not be effective until it is divorced from the mania for hope that is an essential part of corporate indoctrination. The ridiculous positivism, the belief that we are headed toward some glorious future, defies reality. Hope, in this sense, is a form of disempowerment.There is nothing inevitable about human existence except birth and death. There are no forces, whether divine or technical, that will guarantee us a better future. When we give up false hopes, when we see human nature and history for what they are, when we accept that progress is not preordained, then we can act with an urgency and passion that comprehends the grim possibilities ahead.”https://www.alternet.org/…/chris-hedges-americas-mania…
