That was an entirely un-fun rant, especially on a Friday night, but certain things need to be said. If you benefit from a system, any system, you should acknowledge that and rail against it whenever you can. This goes for privilege of economic, racial, or gender means.

Exactly. We want to strike some balance between the things we believe in, but also continue to exist, allowing us to keep spreading the things we believe in.

A world without evils and pitfalls is possible and it is our firmest belief that we will get there at some point.

We genuinely believe the things we say, because we are not a major corporation trying to feign some kind of authenticity, but at the same time, capitalism is a system that we are forced to exist within

The simple fact of the matter is that we feel like we need to pull back the curtain on this: we are a business that is trying to survive.

Ethical advertising is difficult subject, because everything you do is informed by the reality that what you say will carry your brand name with it and therefore will potentially make you more money. Some companies exploit this in more insidious ways than others.

This account is run by two people, our handles are right there in our bio, and we are both pushing for a better world using whatever audience we can. We want to give people content that they want to see, but in 2019, that desire and even our audience are informed by capitalism

We have promoted ’s videos before, but this one feels especially prescient in the wake of the Sunny Delight depression tweet from the other week

(THREAD, unfortunately) We are, for better or for worse, a brand, a brand that we have been trying to push in progressively weird direction. We are a left-leaning independent bookstore, but at the end of the day, we are trying to sell you something: books, ideas, etc.

Starting to think that there might be *too* much philosophy. Stop thinking about things!

Badly describe three books that you love in as few words as possible. We’ll start: - A baseball causes the Cold War -A man has an EXTREMELY bad beach vacation -Nobody actually eats anything at a jewelry store
