Talking about "I wish it had been" (the drawing of Leon <3) I'm curious about how it feels that in the video game on you work (I don't know if you make the plot) the main and others characters are designed as you want.

In Europe, most of the key institutions of what later became the welfare state—everything from social insurance and pensions to public libraries and public health clinics—were not originally created by governments at all, but by trade unions, neighborhood associations, cooperatives, and working-class parties and organizations of one sort or another. Many of these were engaged in a self-conscious revolutionary project of “building a new society in the shell of the old,” of gradually creating Socialist institutions from below. For some it was combined with the aim of eventually seizing control of the government through parliamentary means, for others, it was a project in itself. One must remember that during the late nineteenth century, even the direct heirs of Marx’s Communist Party had largely abandoned the idea of seizing control of the government by force, since this no longer seemed necessary; in a Europe at peace and witnessing rapid technological progress, they felt that it should be possible to create a social revolution through peaceful, electoral means. Germany was one of the places where such parties were most successful. Even though Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, the great mastermind behind the creation of the German state, allowed his parliament only limited powers, he was confounded by the rapid rise of workers’ parties, and continually worried by the prospect of a Socialist majority, or a possible Paris Commune-style uprising in his new united Germany. His reaction to Socialist electoral success from 1878 was twofold: on the one hand, to ban the Socialist party, trade unions, and leftist newspapers; on the other, when this proved ineffective (Socialist candidates continued to run, and win, as independents), to create a top-down alternative to the free schools, workers’ associations, friendly societies, libraries, theaters, and the larger process of building socialism from below. This took the form of a program of social insurance (for unemployment, health and disability, etc.), free education, pensions, and so forth—much of it watered-down versions of policies that had been part of the Socialist platform, but in every case, carefully purged of any democratic, participatory elements. In private, at least, he was utterly candid about describing these efforts as a “bribe,” an effort to buy out working-class loyalties to his conservative nationalist project.

“The Utopia of Rules”,- David Graeber

I hear so many “tone police” one another–silencing people by attacking their vehemence or volume and ignoring the substance of what they are saying, always insisting that we should respond more calmly, more rationally, to keep people comfortable rather than truly expressing ourselves. This policing of behavior is a form of surveillance–a form of patriarchal gatekeeping. It’s concerning that when we do show emotions people are quick to label that as “crazy”, which is of course stigmatizing, which is of course limiting. Emotions are part of being alive and human.

Doctor Who: Captain Jack Harkness [ESTP]

UNOFFICIAL TYPING by gondorcalls4aid 

Extroverted Sensing (Se): When faced with a problem Captain Jack almost always takes the direct approach. When he sees that the Utopia project needs power he immediately plugs it in…even though the wires are live with electricity. Aboard the Valiant he finds the Paradox machine. Knowing that The Doctor wants it eliminated he simply opens fire with an automatic weapon, an effective and immediate solution. His reckless inclinations pairs well with the fact that he can’t die and he takes full advantage. He flirts with anyone and everyone he meets unashamedly. When he thinks he’s about to die for real he activates “Protocol 417,” gin, vodka, dry vermouth, and lemon twist. 

Introverted Thinking (Ti): While Captain Jack likes the direct approach, he understands the consequences and usually has an outcome in mind based a deduction. He concocts a plan to con the Doctor when they first meet, trying to sell him a “warship” which is actually a medical ship. (Unfortunately he’s trying to con The Doctor and we all know how that ends) He doesn’t usually talk about his ideas, keeping them to himself. The fact that he left the time agency shows that he values autonomy and he excels as a solitary operative or with a small team.  

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): While often putting up a “Tough guy” front, Captain Jack is actually very sensitive to criticism. His usually, “guns blazing” attitude is subdued at a word from the Doctor. When the Doctor is around Jack strive to keep him happy, refraining from using weapons when possible. His naturally independent nature contrasts with his urge to please. He left the Time Agency after learning that they altered his memories, feeling betrayed. He comes back to save the Doctor and Rose from a falling bomb, as opposed to an Fi/Te who may have seen it as “not his problem.”  

Introverted Intuition  (Ni): Paired with his Ti, Jack’s Ni helps him understand the consequences of his reckless actions and direct them in a way that is helpful. On occasion Jack has good foresight, such as the time he plans to intercept the Doctor in Cardiff when comes back to refuel. Captain Jack also envisions a new Torch-wood and works to bring the organization back in a form that eliminates it’s old mistakes.

Note: I considered ESFP for a while until I realized how he will put aside his own impulses when other people disprove, specifically The Doctor. He always accepts the Doctor’s verdict and avoids open confrontation, a natural Fe trait.

God that Moby bitchfest vid reminds me of a "dystopia/utopia" project we did as an art project. Some wokeass did his about how everyone uses phones and ignores "real shit!!!" And he literally titled it "hypnotic rectangles" like... really dude? This dumb strawman has been around since before newspapers.

Remember “book mania”? 


GMW: When history repeats itself.

I just feel the need to express myself with this whole Rucas vs Lucaya situation. Especially since many Rucas fans are either outraged or disappointed with the fact Riley realizes she loves Lucas like a brother.

I know a lot of fans of Girl Meets World are in conflict with who ends up who.

However, I have the hugest feeling that Riley will end up with Farkle.
