truly the most fundamentally indecisive person on earth
how to combat the ensuing panic:
comic books, watching the bunnies, conjugations&flashcards, multiple podcasts,
pauses in the day to remind myself that choosing a path where i am critical of each step i take is as noble as being funneled through a program for security (and perhaps more ethical/personally fulfilling…),
recognizing the reality of all sorts of spectrums in everyday life,
and dually recognizing the ignorance in others as, though benign, ever-present,
while recognizing my own myriad of shortfalls,
If you want to help us, please don’t come to the World Cup, or the Olympics.
Please don’t come to Brazil.
I will not go to Brazil
many of these issues also apply for: reasons i am worried abt istanbul getting the 2020 olympics
edit: as if it were still a candidate city
"Because that’s the thing about Scooby-Doo: The bad guys in every episode aren’t monsters, they’re liars.
I can’t imagine how scandalized those critics who were relieved to have something that was mild enough to not excite their kids would’ve been if they’d stopped for a second and realized what was actually going on. The very first rule of Scooby-Doo, the single premise that sits at the heart of their adventures, is that the world is full of grown-ups who lie to kids, and that it’s up to those kids to figure out what those lies are and call them on it, even if there are other adults who believe those lies with every fiber of their being. And the way that you win isn’t through supernatural powers, or even through fighting. The way that you win is by doing the most dangerous thing that any person being lied to by someone in power can do: You think."

You probably heard about the protests that started in Gezi Park, Istanbul, Turkey the past weeks that continue to this day and that have spread through the country.
The people organized this Public Library in Gezi Park that was later destroyed by the police (as you can see in the last 2 photographs).
Between the chaos and the danger of police brutality (that have severely injured and killed civilians), people got together and built a library.
This is the human spirit in its most beautiful form.
