A reliable way to make people believe in falsehoods is frequent repetition, because familiarity is not easily distinguished from truth. Authoritarian institutions and marketers have always known this fact.
If I’m being honest, Pidge is the hardest to sort in a Harry Potter au because like… she’s got two driving forces.
I usually sort Pidge into Ravenclaw because, assuming she went to Hogwarts as an 11yo Katie Holt, there is no doubt in my mind that she valued the pursuit of knowledge above all else back then. Like, she’s always been a prodigy hacker. And she’s the Green Paladin for the reason- she’s inquisitive, she has this burning inch to learn and touch and understand. Katie doesn’t want to just touch the stars; she wants to download them, in any way she can.
But Pidge Gunderson is a Slytherin. Pidge lies her way into government agencies, lies to her friends until she knows she can trust them, creates plans and backup plans and backup backup plans for everything because everything can go wrong. Everything has gone wrong for her. She’s cunning, and infiltrates, and is above all loyal. Her commitment to her family almost outstripped her duty to Voltron. But as a Slytherin, she was able to see her role in the larger picture… and that same dedication kept her on the team.
When I think about Pidge, I call her Pidge Holt in my mind. Because she’s no longer Katie… but her family name is Holt, not Gunderson. You can’t have one part without the other. They’re intertwined, you know? Ultimately, I decided that Pidge was a Ravenclaw just to spread out all five Paladins across the four houses, lmao.
You don't know that, Armin! Come on, we still know nothing about the world out there! You still haven't seen the ocean, right? There's so much to learn about the world, you can't give up! If we just go beyond the walls-
*Flashback to what happened to Faye when she went beyond the walls*
*Ceremony where Historia gives out rewards commences*
Eren, in his thoughts:
I know that our situation is bleak, and if I can change I'd be willing to sacrifice my life. And yet, I can't bring myself to sacrifice Historia.
This is a reference to how Eren know that, when he activated the coordinate, he was touching a titanized royal (Dina), so they might be able to activate it by titanizing Historia. But he didn't tell anyone.
*Kisses Historia's hand*
--------Memory is awakened in Eren----------
*Back when Grisha was confronting Freida, before he ended up killing them all*
Come on guys just use your powers to kill everyone trying to kill the people I love so the people I love don't have to die.
*Glares at Grisha*
Anyways so the guillotines pretty much got rid of all the titans and they retook wall Maria. And there's almost no titans left on the island.
So I guess all the titans are killed. One thing off Eren's bucket list.
SO a lot of months passed and they set off to find the ocean.
Another one off the bucket list. Productive day.
*FLIPS THE FUCK OUT*
*Somewhat sullen, contemplative*
So... on the other side of that ocean, there's people who are going to try to kill us.
We aren't free yet. Is killing the people who oppose us what it takes to finally be free?
Also who does your hair it's fabulous
Sorry this wasn't as funny. hopefully it's easy to understand, at least.
Project Sigma: the project that allegedly deals with contact and communication with alien civilizations.
In 1952, the government created several special agencies to help with the ufo problem. One of the projects created in 1952 was Project Sigma. The project was successful, Dwight D. Eisenhower negotiated a treaty with extraterrestrials and established an inner circle of Illuminati to manage relations with the aliens and keep their presence a secret from the general public.
At one of the meetings between the government and the aliens an agreement was made, and contained some of the following provisions: - The United States would not reveal alien presence and would not interfere with alien operations. -The United States would allow the aliens to maintain underground bases. -The United States would allow the aliens to abduct its citizens on a periodic and limited basis for medical examination, providing that the people were returned unharmed and without memory of the interaction. -The aliens would furnish a periodic list of abductees. -The aliens would provide the United States with technology in beam weaponry, gravitational propulsion, mind control and implant technology.
Its widely believed that their basic game appears to be to control leaders with implants or replacing them with entities they can control. The function of the ‘elite’ humans, as far as the Greys are concerned, are to decimate portions of the human population so that the remainder can be easily controlled. During the occupation of the Greys, they have established quite a number of underground bases all over the world, especially in the United States..
A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality that is contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police state dictatorship it is going to get.
My wish for Obama’s final act as President: To dissolve and disband the Ku Klux Klan as a whole! #DisbandTheKlan
The FBI illegally dissolved The Black Panther Party in 1982. They created community organizations and is responsible for ZERO murders. The Klu Klux Klan has and continues to operate, members are allowed to meet and make public appearances after being responsible for countless murders, and hate crimes. Realizing the stain of The Confederate Flag is one thing, but I think that this happening would be REAL change that will really Impact this nation. This action would prove to show that this nation has dignity and Integrity. There is one key difference in why one exists and the other does not. The Klu Klux Klan members are your teachers, policemen, lawyers, politicians, etc. under those hoods. The Black Panther Party members were Fathers, Mothers, students, and neighbors denied much of the judicial, political and favorable power in positions that the Hooded cowards have. If you ever asked yourself why the Klan still stands, well ask yourself, who is the Klan! Who ain’t scared to Reblog and start this conversation?!
During the 2016 presidential campaign, reporters marveled at the ability of Donald Trump and his surrogates to create an alternate reality in which statements made by the candidate had not been made at all—from his view that global warming is a hoax, to his nonexistent opposition to the Iraq War, to his refusal to say he would concede in the event of a loss, to his remarks about his relationship to Russian strongman Vladimir Putin. These are people who could argue that the sky is green without a blink. They were able to win a presidential election while doing so. Now they will have the entire apparatus of the federal government to bolster their lies, and the mainstream press is woefully unprepared to cover them.
