princess-pathetic asks: Explain 2 me what is communism


in capitalism there are those who get no ball pit time and those who get an extra hour

communism is one giant ball pit that we all live in and cherish.


do not call me daddy in bed. i have had beers with your father. he is a nice man. do not get me involved. 

It is important for this country to make its people so obsessed with their own liberal individualism that they do not have time to think about a world larger than self.

Jenny Holzer, ”Truisms” (1978)
I’ve really tried to understand the Israelis. I used to work on a farm in Israel. I speak Hebrew. I watch their news. All the time they talk about fear. How they have to run to their bunkers to hide from the rockets. How their children can’t sleep because of the sirens. This is not a good way for them to live. We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.
