I figured it wasn't worth even debating Bill Maher's attention-seeking trolling, but nails him to the wall in his superb Daily Beast piece: "H.L Mencken he ain’t. Hell, as contrarians go, he’s barely even a J. Jonah Jameson."

Polite approaches are failing. Climate change is killing people and nonhuman species daily. Get loud, get obnoxious, disrupt spaces of complacency that facilitate the self-defeating prioritization of capitalism over the land & water & air we need for life. Reject normalization.

I think theproblem is that of the villains in the new films, only Kylo Ren has much of anything going on. Snoke is a decent Serkis voice performance and nothing more, Phasma is a set of armor, and thus Hux's utter useless pettiness doesn't really have much to bounce off of.

I actually like--in a meta sort of way--that he's a complete drip.

There are so many fantastic plotters, dialogue writers, artists and storytellers who cannot write a fake newspaper article to save their damn life

Human beings are incapable of producing anything remotely like this, no matter how many scientists and engineers we gather to try. The least we could do is preserve, honor and care for it. Instead, we're destroying it - inexorably, deliberately, and irreversibly:

There are so many tweets about the activities today, in London and elsewhere, so worth following to see what has been happening. So many people came, often from far away from London, paying their train fares, as they SO MUCH want change to happen

This flyer from might be my favorite modern piece of leftist propaganda. When we make appeals for socialism we need to speak with this sense of urgency. The world must change if we are to survive, and we’re running out of time.

"Thirty-nine members of the United Aryan Brotherhood and Unforgiven neo-Nazi groups were arrested in a Florida drug trafficking sting [leading] to the seizure of more than 110 illegal firearms, a rocket launcher, and two pipe bombs."

it's still phenomenal to me that a neo-confederate assassinated a sitting US politician in 2015 and people wonder whether antifa is as bad as the fascists
