Liberland Bill of Rights - Legislative Restrictions

I’ve been reading through the constitution they’ve drafted for their experiment and it’s pretty interesting. The legislative restrictions in the Bill of Rights draft is a great rebuke of conventional abuses that have been adopted globally by authoritarians.

It is an exciting time to be a part of the freedom movement. Relative to collectivists manipulating and fighting with one another we find an organized energy not lost in rhetoric with many great ideas being acted upon from the Free State Project to this. People are starting to see through the veil. Like many times before they can’t stop it.

one really fun thing to me is that people are really generally very ignorant of the more technical aspects of how language works

and that’s a good thing – linguists joke all the time about how they “used to speak their native language” or something like that because they think too much about certain phenomena

but it comes up a lot on tumblr because this site likes to do a lot of meta-level analysis and sometimes people describe a certain feature but in a way that doesn’t actually mirror its usage, and it’s just fascinating to me

@anon if the physical embodiment of a gay relationship doesn’t want to date someone it’s because it’s a monogamous relationship, not because it’s an aroace relationship

anonymous asked:

Hey, um, I'm kinda confuised. hat was Shion supposed to say about Inukashi when he held her in his arms when she was molested? His husband suddenly cut him off so-

Hello!

Hmm, you’re talking about this, right? 

Presumably, Shion is going to say something about Inukashi’s gender here. I think more importantly, Shion realizes something about Inukahsi that maybe he didn’t before – that they are young and just as susceptible to being scared as anyone. The situation that Inukashi was in was terrifying, especially considering Nezumi’s late entrance (which you can interpret in a multitude of different ways: Nezumi’s familiarity with the sex trade, he’s just kind of a dick or overdramatic, etc). And I think that part of what Shion was thinking about here was how this whole plan is going to affect everyone/realizing how dangerous the whole thing actually is, something he might not have considered before when he just knew that he needed to save Safu. 

So, this is maybe Shion having a couple different realizations about Inukashi – realizations that maybe we are supposed to assume that Nezumi already knows or doesn’t care about – their age/their gender.


When the world is an incessant uproar in conflicted tumult of antagonistic aggression,
patient self-discipline and resolute reconciliation may be a revolutionary return to wisdom…

2015 All Japan Championship: Winner’s Interview

I couldn’t get motivated since waking up this morning. I knew I’d injure myself if I continued like this, so I decided to lower my difficulty from the qualification (39.0 > 36.8) and perform without mistakes. I’m glad I was able to do that. Maybe it was because I did very well at the qualification, and I felt I gave everything I had, but it’s the first time I couldn’t get motivated on the day of competition.
At the qualification, I was able to perform my routines for Rio without mistakes, and I felt I can raise it a little more.
At the final, I was stimulated by the many university students in my group. The level of the students are getting higher.
Unless I’m standing at the top, I can’t inspire the younger ones. Keeping (this position) will raise the level of Japan.
