“Well, my kitten was less than an hour old and Tomcat was God knows where. I woke up out of the ether with an utterly abandoned feeling, and asked the nurse right away if it was a boy-kitten or a girl-kitten. She meowed that it was a girl-kitten. And so I turned my head away and wept. ‘All right,’ I said, 'I’m glad it’s a girl-kitten. And I hope she’ll be a fool – that’s the best thing a girl-kitten can be in this world, a mew-tiful little fool.’

Let’s keep it that way, because that’s how natural rights work. The thing about natural rights is that there is no legitimate justification for violating them. Any declaration against anyone’s natural rights is a declared threat against them.

“It’s worth it anyway,” says Harry, looking into Louis’s eyes. He’s untucked his hair from behind his ear, and it falls down in silky strands to obscure his face. He looks so painfully young, even after everything. Louis’s strong, strong boy. “Just for the two of us. We get to be selfish for a little while.”
it’s christmas. in between snowman building, tree shopping, and ill-advised skating on a frozen lake, louis and harry get ready to take the most important step of their lives.
But NOT assault rifles. Assault rifles should be the only legal weapon, and you should be able to buy as many as you want from any store near you as long as you have your ID.
No one thinks this. No one, especially not you, would ever be stupid enough to ever be able to even begin to think something that stupid. Except everyone who echoes the propaganda of Nixon or the Clintons, thinking the exact same kind of stupidity, that all drugs should be illegal except alcohol
The entire time I was a socialist, I was fighting against my own principles. I was fighting for the right to privacy and liberty the entire time I was a socialist, not knowing that socialism is by definition the elimination of all privacy, which ultimately includes self ownership in which liberty exists. No coincidence that I became such a self defeating, dependency oriented, unworking mooch when I was at the peak of my socialist idealism. I’m honestly still recovering.
After a misunderstanding with Liam’s mother, Louis agrees to accompany his best friend to a family wedding and pretend to be the world’s best boyfriend. But their simple plan goes awry when he learns that Harry, ex-boyfriend/ex-love of Louis’ life, will also be in attendance. (aka: fake!boyfriends with a twist ft. bromance, romance and cake.)
A parallel universe where Louis and Harry were never together, mix in a two year hiatus and an impending comeback, pour in a dash of lost fans, two tablespoons of strong friendship and a Modest! employee with a good idea. Add a squeeze of pretending to be a couple, lots of kisses and a tattoo or two. Stir. Serve: the mother of all publicity stunts.
Apparently SCOTUS just banned religious indoctrination in public school
New Atheist movement: *Halo 3 announcer voice* FROM THE GRAVE! *Achievement unlocked*
Now if they can expand/clarify that to include political indoctrination, that would be wonderful.
See, you can still legally teach about Islam in public school. I learned about Islam
in public school when I was a firebrand atheist, and I was fine with it. They weren’t requiring anyone believe it, they didn’t posit religious tenets as truth, and they didn’t spend a
disproportionate amount of time on it.
That’s proper free/liberal education. That’s non-imposition, true religious freedom, and proper introduction into verifiable information. Still legal to teach about islam along with any and every other religion (if it’s a class about that subject material), you just cant teach kids that Islam is true or make them have to agree to religious beliefs.
I have a problem that they still are allowing tenets of marxian theory to be taught as fact in public schools. This is a political issue we need to make a big case about. They still allow political indoctrination, just not religious indoctrination. This is something that was unclear about the separation of church and state - you’re rightfully not allowed to use institutional power to require ideological concession using tax dollars. I cant, as a public educator (if I was one) teach your kid that the tenets of nazism or fascism are truth, that the tenets of marxism or feminism are truth, that the tenets of judaism or christianity are truth, not even that the ideas of science or classic liberalism are truth (even if I really really think they are). All I can/ought to be able to teach you is the idea structures of those views. I can teach the model, but I cant indoctrinate. I could tell you what its subscribers believe (if I have substantial supporting evidence for it), I can teach that its subscribers believe its true, and I can present reasons they give for believing their claims and arguments are valid and sound. That’s it. I cant require you concede to any of the ideas in the model, just make sure you know what ideas the model posits. I know there’s inconvenient verbiage that comes with that, but holy fuck, KIDS are being INDOCTRINATED at TAX payer’s expense, I don’t really give a fuck about your moderate inconveniences. I didnt ask to be born, but Im here, so it’s time to learn to live responsibly, to live in accordance with everyone’s rightful liberty, including their freedom of thought.
This SCOTUS decision is a win for everybody, except exploiters… actually, them too even if they don’t understand. It is a win for individual rights.
