Honestly, I feel like now is the time to move or go. I don't see things normalizing and we should be with who we want to hunker down with

It's awesome how my period always takes me to the cusp of the height of my depression.

It's super awesome, how I become the ultimate pessimist during this time period.

Awesome in a, every month has a 50/50 chance of survival baked into it kind of way.

The point of anti-fascism is not to make fascists afraid. Fascists are already afraid, that's why they're fascists. They have a fear based worldview. The point of anti-fascism is to make sure that fascists are isolated, unable to connect with, organize and mobilize other fascists. The point is to make fascists lonely.

At this point, I welcome the apocalypse. Be it through bioweapon committed on the poor via some careless government or through the climate crisis, the end result is functionally the same.

The Oligarchs realize how unnatural their "power and money" is.

And how outnumbered they truly are.

lexistential dread (selfie, ec, boosts are the digital equivalent of headpats and my hair is super floofy plz pat it)

fuck silicon valley and ""innovation"" and ""disruption""

fuck the democratic party
fuck every goddamn republican
fuck the evangelical right
fuck the "moral" "majority"
fuck the dogmatic moderate liberals who feel so progressive for differing from the above
fuck new atheism

I think he's more ready than ever. Bernie's been fighting forever. I tell people he's been fighting for all aspects of me since before I was born. However, he was naive in 2016. He thought the system would allow him to change it from within, and he hadn't created contingency plans when they inevitably didn't.

This time he has his own systems of direct communication and a much clearer and succinct message for the people that aren't already radically left.

@Are0h
Exactly. And he is. It's essentially a no contest right now. Bernie has the majority of support from PoC under 35 and has from the beginning of* his campaign. And now? He's gaining our elders trust.

Nina Turner, Cornel West, Barbara Smith... Powerful leaders in our community our throwing their support behind him.

@Are0h
Exactly. It's not Bernie they hate. It's the people he's waking up.

poetry sits on a gap the phenomenal gulf
between words and imagination; wild imagery
thrives and follows through the fallow
fields of mind and thought, merrily disrupting

capital, the great horror, crucifying and hollowing out
all works of art and wonder while winds of money wreck
creativity and twist all of it, casually, towards its own purposes

I prefer the term "Wealth hoarder" to "billionaire."

@Are0h
Exactly. Which is why I fully agree a label is ultimately meaningless. Labels are constantly co-opted. The only thing that matters is actions and words that much.
