no state solution
White House says it Deliberately Omitted Jews from Holocaust Statement | Time
The Holocaust Remembrance Day statement made no mention of the 6 million Jews killed
By Madeline Farber

Deliberately. Omitted. The Jews…. from HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY.

Donald Trump drops longstanding US insistence on Israeli-Palestinian two-state solution

  • Trump said Wednesday that a two-state solution is not the be-all and end-all when it comes to brokering a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians, backing away from a policy the United States has pushed for decades.
  • “I’m happy with the one they like the best,” Trump said during a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, referring to Israeli and Palestinian aspirations.
  • A two-state solution — which would create an independent Palestinian state west of the Jordan River alongside a Jewish state of Israel — has been the United States’ policy since President Bill Clinton was in office.
  • Trump’s retreat from a two-state solution led to an outcry from Democratic lawmakers. Read more (2/15/17 3:15 PM)

anonymous asked:

hi just wanna ask u, as a lebanese muslim, what defense do u have if any, for israel's invasion of palestine. i agree completely that Jewish ppl deserve a homeland just as any one else does but to invade an already existing and developed nation is cruel. i know ur not 100% pro-israel but i just want to hear ur side bc u don't seem to extremely support either israel/palestine. also, im antizionist but i fail to see how this makes me antisemitic? i have nothing against jewish ppl, just israel. ty

OK. I’m going to break this down a bit because there’s are many components to your ask and some of them are contradictory.

1. Agreeing that the Jewish people deserve a homeland is a form of Zionism. I’m frustrated by the term “anti-zionist” for a number of reasons, especially considering very few people who use the term seem to actually know what Zionism even is, or what it sounds like to most Jews. 

2. Many far right Jew haters use the term “Zionist” interchangeably with Jew and many anti-zionists who are predominantly concerned with the plight of the Palestinians end up buying into all sorts of antisemitic ideas because they’re sold as “anti-zionist.” This is incredibly dangerous to us as it allows antisemitism to be transmitted under a different label and far too few anti-zionists bother to challenge these ideas, allowing them to spread. This is dangerous for Jews and it makes it harder for us to take anti-zionists seriously when they say they aren’t antisemitic.

3. As far as Israel is concerned the circumstances are complicated and too many people try to simplify it by acting like either the Palestinians don’t exist as a people, which is wrong, or that the Jews were pure colonialist invaders which is equally wrong. This drives me nuts. So I’m going to have to break this down a bit. 

Most of the challenges I see to Zionism as practiced by Herzl and Ben Gurion are cherry picked and largely irrelevant to the cause’s necessity. Had there not been multiple waves of refugees, I probably wouldn’t support what they were doing. I also wouldn’t exist. Let me break this down a bit.

British Mandate Palestine’s Jewish Population DOUBLED between 1933 and 1939. The reason for this is twofold.

1. Nazi Germany came into existence, took over neighboring countries and began their steady process of destroying Jewish rights and safety. We all know where that led.

2. Britain, who was controlling Palestine at the time, kept immigration there open when most other countries, including the British mainland and the USA were closed. History has proven that they did, indeed, save their lives by fleeing there.

In 1939, the White Paper, in response to Palestinian protests and revolts, severely restricted Jewish immigration to British Mandate Palestine, left Jews with almost nowhere to run, right when WWII was beginning and the worst effects of Nazism were about to be felt. 

Now here’s my question. Would you bar Jews fleeing Nazism from entering the country? Knowing what we know now? Knowing that nowhere else was taking them in? 

Jewish immigration to Palestine slowed to a trickle during the Holocaust and Jews were literally trapped in Nazi occupied Europe and North Africa. 6 million died. This is historical fact.

After the Holocaust, the survivors who tried to go home faced pogroms, yet were barred from immigrating. They were forced to live in refugee camps. Again, no country made a significant effort to let them in. The USA wouldn’t until 1949 until AFTER Israel’s founding. My grandparents came to the USA because of the Refugee act of 1949. For survivors before 1949, it was Israel, pogroms or homelessness.

The next major wave of immigration to Israel were Jews in the Middle East and North Africa who were driven out of their own countries for being “Zionists” regardless of whether or not they actually were Zionists. These Jews actually form a majority of Israel’s current population. They were driven out and Israel took them in. What alternative did they have?

Finally Jews from the USSR and Ethiopia were facing brutal, systemic oppression and they came to Israel to live safely and freely among their own people, options they didn’t have elsewhere.

Now, here is my problem. Much of the rhetoric and tactics employed by anti-zionists don’t just demonize the Israeli government or state, but Israeli people, the majority of whom are Israeli because they were fleeing for their lives and safety. This is thrown in the garbage bin in favor of throwing out false equivalencies to the Boers or the British Empire. There is a level of hatred thrown at average Israeli Jewish citizens I don’t see thrown at the residents of any other country that is guilty of comparable crimes. I don’t recall seeing people damning Russian actors for being Russian the way I see Gal Gadot being damned for being Israeli. I personally live in the United States, a country built on slavery and genocide, and I don’t see instant hate the way Israeli Jews do. And, had circumstances been even slightly different, my grandparents would’ve moved to Israel instead of the USA after the Holocaust and they would’ve suddenly been treated as evil.

I don’t particularly care at this point about a one or two state solution, though I oppose the idea of annexation as being suggested by the Settler movement because it would result in genuine apartheid. What I do care about is fostering a reality where Jews and Palestinians can live side-by-side as neighbors either in neighboring countries or in the same countries and that will be impossible so long as demonization of Israeli Jews remains a major part of the pro-Palestine movement. How do you expect Jews and Palestinians to live as neighbors when they are taught to hate each other and are egged on by foreigners? 

Peace of any sort can’t happen until people actually want peace and the current environment is so grotesquely driven by hatred and demonization that I don’t see any solution as viable until we see major changes in how it’s discussed. But when Israeli voices, even moderate and liberal ones, are shut up, that is impossible. You can’t make peace with people you refuse to even talk to. This has to stop. 

There’s No Need to be Jealous Klaus

        Request: Hii can you do a Klaus imagine where the reader is hanging out with kol & Klaus gets jealous

Characters: Reader, Kol, Klaus, and Elijah

Warnings: Jealous and angry Klaus, insecurity, etc.           

You were currently in the Mikaelson mansion. You were sat on the couch flipping through a magazine when Kol flopped down beside you.

“I’m bored!” he exclaimed.

“What would you like me to do about it?” you inquired, continuing to casually flip through the magazine.

“Provide some entertainment so I don’t eat you out of boredom?”

“We both know that if you did eat me, you would end up back in your coffin and you’d still be bored so that isn’t even close to a solution,” I stated looking up at him calmly.

“You spend too much time with Nik and Elijah,” Kol huffed.

“Well, I am dating Nik and he trusts Elijah with me.”

“Can we please go to The Grill or something?” kol whined.

“Why do you need me to go?”

“Because I consider you to be a friend, and if I leave you home alone Nik will have my head.”

“Alright, we can go. Come along then,” you conceded and the two of you walked to The Grill. Once you entered, you two sat at the bar. Kol ordered something you didn’t know the name of and you just ordered a milkshake.

“This is much better,” Kol commented sipping his drink.

“You are such a child,” you chuckled.

“I am like over a thousand years older than you,” Kol pointed out.

“And you are still a child,” you teased taking a sip of your milkshake when it arrived.

“Says the girl dating Niklaus.”

“Which is how I know that you are a child, and so is Nik.”

“Fair enough.”

“Exactly,” you chuckled.

“Can I ask you a question?” Kol asked.

“Of course you can.”

“Don’t take this the wrong way, but…why are you with my brother?”

“Not two hours alone and you’re already trying to steal my Y/N brother,” Klaus growled as he walked up behind Kol.

“Nik, calm down. He’s not flirting with me,” you tried to soothe your angry boyfriend.

“You’re taking his side?” Klaus challenged.

“I’m not taking sides Klaus, I’m just trying to..”

“Trying to tell me that you like my brother better, I get it,” Klaus snapped before speeding away.

“We should probably go and find him before he goes on a rampage,” kol sighed paying the bartender and leading you to find Klaus. You two tried the mansion first and walked inside to see Klaus throwing things around.

“Nik! Nik stop!” you yelled trying to go stand in front of him, but Kol grabbed you and held you back. This just made Nik angrier.

“LET Y/N GO!” Klaus demanded, his hybrid face showing.

“Calm down and I will. You could hurt our lovely Y/N,” Kol countered.


“Not intentionally, but accidents happen and you would never forgive yourself and you’d leave to protect them and then you’d just be angry all the time and…”

“Enough, both of you!” Elijah ordered speeding into the room.

“STAY OUT OF IT ELIJAH!” Klaus ordered.

“Stay out of what? What’s even going on?”

“Kol is trying to steal Y/N from me,” Klaus spat.

“What on earth are you on about?” Elijah questioned.

“They were acting all chummy with each other and then Kol asked Y/N why they are dating me!”

“Kol?” Elijah demanded turning to Kol.

“I wasn’t flirting! I was asking more out of curiousity because they are such opposites and I wanted to be sure that they are actually in love because they’re so happy together and I don’t want either of them to get hurt!”

“You…you weren’t trying to..” Klaus sputtered, his face returning to normal.

“Even if he was, I would never…I love you Nik,” you said. Nik smiled and sped to stand in front of you.

“You love me?”

“Of course I do,” you admitted.

“I love you to, my love,” Klaus spoke softly before pulling you into a warm hug.

“I think I might go and vomit now,” Kol fake gagged.

“Shut up Kol,” you and Klaus spoke at the same time.

A/N: I hope you guys like it!!!!

ianadi  asked:

I don't know who is watching the news right now, but Trump just met with Netanyahu in Israel and basically just said that he "would like to see a deal be made ..." And that "a two state solution is no longer feasible." .... I.E. No more recognition of Palestine ....??? I feel sick, does anyone else know about this??

Here is what can be done about this situation:

Going to this link will connect you directly with your senator. This is through Jewish Voice for Peace. Calling through them will tell you what to say. Demand that your senator vote AGAINST Trump’s nomination for ambassador to Israel, David Friedman. He is a supporter and funder of Israel’s illegal and immoral settlements, has denied that Palestinian refugees exist, called liberal Jews kapos, and supports annexation of the West Bank.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is meeting TOMORROW (2/16/17) to consider Friedman for Ambassador to Israel. Call your Senator and tell them to oppose Friedman’s appointment.

Words: 1,089.
Rating: T.

“Get us out of here!” You hissed at Kendra and Ray, who were looking at you through the glass as you rubbed your arms up and down hoping to gain some friction to warm yourself up.

“Sorry guys, you heard Gideon. The doors aren’t going to open until the haul breach is sealed.” Kendra murmured, her voice coming out muffled through the door. You paced back and forth in front of the door before groaning and walking over to sit against one of the generators in the room. You watch as Snart strode over and sat down next to you.

“This must be like a day at the beach for you.” You joked tilting your head to look at Leonard. “If I had to pick a way to die, freezing wouldn’t be worst.” He shook his head slightly. “Do you fear dying?” He asked suddenly, turning his head to gaze at you.

“Honestly? Not really. Death has always found a way to wrap itself around my life. First my father, the only person that ever cared about me and then someone I once considered a sister, were both taken away from me. Then I almost died during a heist that went sour.” Leonard looked down staring at the floor as you explained to him why you didn’t fear death. “What about you?”

“Closest I ever came to dying was uh… the day I met Mick.” He said. You snorted lightly, shivering slightly as you huddled closer into yourself. Today was a bad day to wear a simple white t-shirt. “Why does that not surprise me?” You asked rhetorically, resting your head on your elbow that was supported on your knee, gazing intently at Leonard.

“I wasn’t like that.” He said quickly shaking his head, smiling a bit at the memory. “It was my first day in juvie. I was 14, and the smallest kid in there by far. Some of the older kids wanted to make sure I knew it. So they jumped me. I fought back, but one of them had a shiv and I figured that was it until Mick stepped in. And they didn’t mess with me after that. He’s been standing up for me ever since.” He finished, returning your gaze.

You hummed in acknowledgment shivering harshly. For a moment, Leonard stared at you before shuffling around to take of his jacket. “What are you doing?” You questioned him, carefully watching his every move. “I’m giving you my jacket. Watching you shiver is annoying.” He sassed.

“No! Absolutely not! You’re going to freeze.” You responded, hugging yourself even tighter. “I’ll manage. Plus we’re already freezing so what difference would it make which one of us wears the jacket.” Leonard reasoned.

You contemplated his argument, opening and closing your mouth, no comeback coming to mind. Suddenly a devilish idea popped into his mind as he smirked. You narrowed your eyes, warily looking at Leonard. “What.” You stated.

“I’ve got a solution to our problem.” Answered Leonard with a drawl in his voice. He opened his thin coat and welcomed you into his semi-warm embrace.

You ended up sitting on his lap, pressed firmly against Leonard, trying to fight the cold. As another wave of chillness rolled down your spine, you huddled closer to him. You could feel his grip around you tighten as you tried to get even closer, the cold freezing you to your core.

You look up to see Leonard already staring at you, a look on his face that probably mirrored your own. You tilted your head slightly and licked your lips, teasing him. Then he slowly leaned in. Your breath hitched in your throat, and for a moment your eyes roamed his face, thinking about the pros and cons and what would happened if this kiss would ensue. But once you caught his gaze again, all that resolve went to hell. 

As he gets closer, your hands reach up and gently cup his face, bringing it down to yours as your lips connect in a sweet kiss. The kiss was softer than you had anticipated, the slow pace and gentle motion making you stomach turn in excitement. Once you pulled away you smiled slight lightly and hummed.

“What are you smiling about?” Snart grumbled, trying to move away from you, but your body heat kept him close. You moved you hands away from his face and onto his shoulders. “I didn’t think Leonard Snart, a notorious criminal, could kiss so gently.” You joked, leaning your head on his chest. His face turned from on of confusion to one of mild annoyance.

“I take what I want, whenever I want and I wanted you, so I took you.” He mumbled, beginning to shuffle away again. He didn’t get far before you raised your head from his shoulder and pulled him into another kiss. This one was a little more hungry and fiercely passionate.

As the kiss became more heated, the two of you warmed up quite nicely. This kiss turned into a hot make out session as opposed to the gentle kiss you shared moments ago.

You pulled away once again, panting harshly to try and regain your breath. The two of you stare at each other for a while, Leonard leaning back in to kiss you again before you put a finger against his lips.

“Did you think I’d let you ‘take what you want, when you want’ so easily?” You smirked, quoting his words. “If you want another kiss Leonard, you’re either gonna have to work for it or do what you do best and steal it.” You whisper before you rest your head against his shoulders once more. He grunted in annoyance, but complied anyways, holding you close. 

Bonus: After the events that had happened today, you found yourself unable to sleep. Wandering the Waverider, you turn to go down another hallway, but the moment you rounded the corner, you were pushed against the wall, a pair of lips smashing against yours as you let out a sound of surprise.

The moment you see the familiar stoic face of the kleptomaniac, you kiss back with the same amount of severity and lust as your arms reached up to wrap around his shoulders and pull him closer.

“Stole it.” He winked at you, a cocky smirk gracing his face, before walking away. You let out a breath as he walked around the corner, a small smile growing on your face as you lightly touched your mouth, the sensation of his lips, lingering.

Alright! Here’s my first attempt at writing a Leonard Snart fanfic! I hope I portrayed his character correctly… Reblogs and like are appreciated, thanks for reading! Sorry if you find any typos!

para-ppa  asked:

i just had an epiphany... the reason dj Khaled mentions keys so much is cause he's palestinian??? tf i just realized that

don’t forget he also backs a one state solution called “wethebest-istan”! he’s a true advocate 

The state of the world has been on my mind a lot lately. Things seem to be deteriorating, and those dark, thunderous clouds are on the horizon again, with the cold wind of conflict whipping things around. I’m caught in an odd place. One that is, obviously, not as bad as some places, but still one that isn’t ideal. Two nations that I’m tied to seem to be about to get up to circle each other in that metaphorical boxing ring. The cold war seems to be making a comeback, along with all those other 70s and 80s trends, and I’d rather it be one thing thing, just like parachute pants, that stayed in the last century. But here we are again, with innocent people dying in proxy wars again, with ominous military action again, with posturing and threats again, with negative headlines again. And, unfortunately, with cultural ties getting farther apart, again. Lives matter. Syrian lives, American lives, and Russian lives. Maybe if we all though about that a bit more it’d sink in. At times like this I think of the Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell’s quote, “You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.” That seems to be what needs to happen…..again.

this was an email sent out about a 400 MHz NMR that we call the robot. i feel you would appreciate.

I’m so curious about the type of sample probe that could do this? Is this like a solution state SR probe? 

Also that’s apparently a magic sample tube and should always be used

BTW I’m rethinking my two state stance, due to both actually being here now and having spoken with multiple people on the subject whilst here.
We spoke with a very right wing, settler, Bennett supporting lady, and right after we spoke with a very leftwing Christian Palestinian man who grew up going to Israeli Zionist schools, and the morning prior we spoke with a man who wasn’t really on the left/right divide, and was a secular Israeli Jew.

This has been pretty intense, to say the least, but one point was consistent: one way or another, a two state solution isn’t practical and just doesn’t have the population supporting it, and if it was forcibly implemented it would likely only worsen the conflict and hatred.

The Palestinian man suggested something like the “Swiss system”, where the Jews would have control of Jewish areas, Palestinians/Arabs would control their areas, possibly other larger sections could get separate control over their areas, and a larger government would connect these groups through joint control over military, food, water, roads, electricity, etc.

In his words, he said both Israeli and Palestinian populations due to their histories have developed a severe victim complex and thus both are reacting to a threat that they are creating BY reacting in the first place, in a two way fashion. Think if it like a causation loop, but it’s two circles stuck together.

I actually like this idea a lot, because it gives each group local autonomy and room for intra-politics, and then it gives another layer for national politics between the groups. It doesn’t stamp out Palestinian national aspirations, it doesn’t push the Israelis into the sea, it doesn’t murder this group or that group, and even opens the door for other groups to get a stronger voice, if they want it. The goal of this idea is to remove the stigma and slowly reduce the hatred, without there being a loser. Jews can still have law of return and Jewish culture protected, Palestinians can build up their infrastructure and resources without worry, the land itself stops getting blown up, the people are not stuck in constant anxiety with rockets overhead, and the Old City is jointly protected.

I think this is a more nuanced version of the “binational one state solution”, that rather that inspiring competing nationalisms and reactionary IntraPolitik, would instead foster brotherhood and autonomous respect.

To sum him up, he said “this land is a holy land to all of us, religiously and culturally. Dividing it, that wouldn’t help. It’s like the baby brought before king Solomon, cutting it in half would only kill the land and no one who really cares about the land would want that, only those who hate would want such a thing. The people of this land, regardless of ethnicity, have dealt with terrible governments and deadly conditions, and there is now a larger culture of hatred. The thing about hatred is that it is drinking poison and expecting the other to die from it. No, what actually happens is the reactionary hatred and religious fanaticism will swallow the people’s culture and destroy it from within. Look no further than Hamas or militant Charedim as my evidence. When all the focus, all the spending, and all the conversations are focused on hatred, revenge, separatism, and murder, then who is feeding the people, planting the trees, building the communities, or educating the children? Who is helping the poor, the needy? Who is watching and checking the culture? No one. With that route, there is no future, not because it isn’t possible to implement, but because it means death. I do not mean hold hands, sing, and everything will be fine, no, there is still negotiations to be had, repercussions and justice, apologies and learning, but it is this other path that can redeem the people.”

He also spoke briefly about BDS, in a manner that I adored. It was yo the effect of “the minority that is seeking change and has a nuanced conversation going, they are exploring, good for them. The majority, however, is antisemitic, actually exasperate the issues and fanaticism, and are not working with the Palestinians best interests in mind, rather they are imposing their British, American, Canadian etc ideological niche on a nuanced middle eastern context that they cannot relate to. I don’t believe in boycotts, they stop conversation, they stop thought, and they put walls where we should make bridges.”

So yeah. He was a very powerful speaker. I find this idea preserves Zionist goals, Palestinian liberation and justice, the will of the average person regardless of affiliation, and would (hopefully) satisfy the international community. This conflict is a true test of humanities maturity, I think. If this can be sorted out, then the rest of our issues can be also. If not, we are doomed to eternal wars and suffering for profit.

anonymous asked:

Hey, so I have a planet that has two suns. I was trying to have it so one sun would be up while the other sun was on the other side of the world, and then it would switch making it so everywhere was daylight all the time. Is this possible?

With science-as-we-know-it and only two suns, it is not. To set up the system as you’ve described it, it would have to look something like this.

(A, B, and C are positions in time, so that at time A, Planet and Star2 are at their respective As, and the same for B and C.)

This setup wont work to keep Planet in total daylight on all sides because Planet and Star2 orbit around Star1 at different speeds. The closer you orbit a body, the faster you need to go to stay in orbit.

So, while both Planet and Star1 are at position A, the Planet has no nighttime. But, when Planet moves to position B, Star2 hasn’t moved quite as far and there is a part of Planet that is turned away from both stars. When they’re at position C, Planet sees both stars during the day, and has a regular night side that is turned away from both stars.

But, fear not, there are some ways to have a planet with no night. What it results in is some very spectacular, and very strange systems.

Solution 1: Multiple Stars. I mean A Lot of Them.

Situation: Your planet is in a star system with multiple stars - a lot of stars - six, eight, maybe even a dozen or more. So many that anywhere you are on your planet you can see one or more stars. You would have periods of bright day, very bright day, and not-so bright day. Rarely would you have no stars in the sky, and this would bring the occasional truly dark night.

Azimov postulates a planet like this in his novel Nightfall. Lagash is a thriving planet in a system with six suns, and gets nighttime only once every 2000 years. The people know nothing of the rest of the universe and think their planet and suns are all that exists. A couple of scientists predict when the next nightfall happens. and realizes that people will be traumatized by the darkness. When night arrives and the citizens of Lagash see the universe of stars in the night sky, they panic and destroy their own civilization - something they do every time it gets dark.

Hard-Science: Smaran Deshmukh and Jayant Murthy of the University of Bonn, have done the math and concluded that a system like Lagash’s is plausible, but might only be stable over a few hundred years. They continue to state that other solutions may be possible that are much more stable over a much longer periods.

Summary: Plausible, but not likely. Of course. in science-fiction, that’s good enough.

Solution 2: Artificial Stars Around the Planet

Situation: Your planet orbits one star, but your planet has several satellites that radiate heat and light in orbit around it. These mini-suns keep your planet bathed in total daylight. Actually, with a belt of artificial sun-satellites, a planet wouldn’t even need a real sun, and could just be travelling between stars.

Hard-Science: Those mini-suns could be small fusion or anti-matter reactors, or be powered by some sort of magical energy, according to what flavor you want your world to have.

Summary: Plausible. Mini-suns powered by SCIENCE or SORCERY are quite believable. They’d have to use a lot of fuel or pull energy from another dimension or whatever, but that’s just details.

Solution 3: We’re Really at the Center of the Universe And OhMyGodWereAllGoingToDie!

Situation: Your planet is ‘orbited’ by it’s stars.

Hard-Science: I lied. It’s actually possible to have a planet without night with only two stars, but I wouldn’t want to live on that planet.

The binary stars orbit around their mutual center or gravity called the barycenter. In the diagram below, that’s marked with a small red cross. If your planet was located right at that balance point, it would look like the stars were orbiting around the planet, and your planet would have no night.

The barycenter is also a Lagrange point between the two stars - an L1 point, and we know they’re unstable.

Summary: While technically possible, this situation is very very very unstable and is very very unlikely to occur naturally - and if it did. it wouldn’t last long. Very soon (like within a couple of hundred years or less), the planet would either drift into one of the stars or be ejected from the system entirely. Neither one would be very good for the planet.

Did I mention that this situation is very unstable?

However, if you have some sort of super-technology or wizardry, which would prevent the planet from drifting off, it could work. But with that power, why have real stars? Put up some artificial ones, move the planet, and you don’t have to live in a cosmic death trap. :-)

Solution 4: My God - It’s Full of Stars!

Situation: Your planet and it’s star is inside a globular cluster - a region of space that is just lousy with stars. Someone on your planet could see 100 times more stars than we can see with the naked eye from Earth. The night sky would shine with a total brightness of a couple-dozen full moons. Nighttime would be a slightly dim twilight instead of dark night.

Hard-Science:  The stars around Earth are scatter about with an average density of 0.14 stars per cubic parsec (a parsec is 3.26 light-years). The stars within a dense globular cluster - like the one at 47 Tucanae - packs in several hundred stars in one cubic parsec.

Add more stars to the cluster to make the night sky brighter - but be careful! Adding in too many stars and you could cook your planet with too much radiation.

Each star would still be quite a distance away. Far enough that they would appear as points of light to the naked eye. But, there would be so many of them and they would be so very bright. From Earth, we can see 29 1st magnitude (very bright, like Sirius or Canopus) stars. From inside a globular cluster, you could see 10,000 or them,

Summary: Quite plausible, and very beautiful.

We are one people– our enemies have made us one in our distress, as repeatedly happens in history.  Distress binds us together, and thus united, we suddenly discover our strength. Yes, we are strong enough to form a state, and a model state.

Jaebum knew that you would tell him when you were ready to. Until then he made sure you felt well or at least better again.

Jackson sees you crying and immediately turns into Wang Puppy-Mode. You can’t escape his cuddles. Maybe he would even tickle you to make you laugh again. Or tell some jokes. Or tell stories about him failing at dance practice. When you finally calmed down he would be there for some real talk about what had happened and why it had upset you that much.

Jinyoung would silently stare at you first. Then he decides a hug would be the best option and he quietly made his way over to you. He’d let you cry all you wanted, until your tears finally dried out. Throughout the whole time he was dying to know the reason for your unhappy state. He’ll find a solution for whatever was upsetting you no matter what.

He stresses himself out so much that he almost cries himself but still tries to calm you down, at best immediately! Don’t think you could escape from his love. He will cuddle and hug you to dath or at least until you stop crying

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY? Bambam is so confused to suddenly see you crying in your bedroom. He treis to help by doing everything for you that might cheer you up again. But of course he constantly tries to find out the reaspn you’re crying alone in you bedroom.

The poor maknae doesn’t know what to do. He is unsure if you’d like him to come to you so you had someone by your side or if you’d rather want to be alone for a while. Even though he isn’t sure he decides to hug you anyways. When you are ready to tell him he listens very well and carefully so he can help you afterwards.

Next up will be something BTS or Monsta X related. We’ll see which I’ll do faster… :D

Tell me how Anarcho-Marxism works

Analysis based on a materialist analysis following from capital but praxis which focuses on anti and extra state solutions like the development of mutual aid.

It’s mostly a way of pissing off partisans tho
