What would be your vision of an ideal society?
  1. no money
  • or AT LEAST a drastically re-structured monetary system that does not inherently lend itself to income inequality and inflation, one that does not seek to benefit only the rich by exploiting the hard work of the poor wage slave, one that does not equate debt to financial security…. one that does not involve the world’s financial power being granted to a PRIVATE banking cartel (the federal reserve, by the nature of its’ work, is the most powerful institution in the world and those who run it are THE most powerful people in the world, far more than any politician. how many politicians can you name? yeah? how about the people who run the federal reserve? yeaaah….)
  1. no work
  • and what i mean by that is; repetitive, manual human labor should no longer be necessary, and in fact… really isn’t. machinery could replace the vast majority of the work force TOMORROW. something like over 70% of employed people could be replaced, and that statistic doesn’t include what already has been. it is LUDICROUS that people reject technological advances that would make us more efficient due to a fear of change. it holds us back. anything that frees people to more personal pursuits is better for not only that individual’s well being, but also for the overall health of society. (for every person that awakens, it becomes easier for the next, and so on…) people could instead be freed for intellectual, creative, and spiritual pursuits; things which would genuinely benefit the growth of society on ALL LEVELS, not just at our fucking GDP, which would allow the human race to evolve spiritually and emotionally. our physical evolution has been impressive so far. time to up that game
  • nay sayers would say that no work = no motivation, people will become lazy… i COMPLETELY disagree and think the way people are currently FORCED into the work world with a total disregard to their individual needs, goals, or desires, actually DEMOTIVATES and DESTROYS them. people give up their original passions; the things which, if they were given the time and resources to pursue, could lead to much greater advances than could EVER come from someone clocking in to work every day. imagine if people were free to explore whatever intellectual or spiritual world that resonates with them… imagine the things we could come up with, the stuff we could do… i think we are collectively reaching a point where our greatest strength, our intelligence, is also our greatest weakness and that is starting to become more and more obvious. we have to understand the nature of life thoroughly (which starts with each individuals’ personal exploration - it cannot work any other way. we can’t do this if we structure society in a way which keeps people from self-actualization.)
  • i was gonna say “NO CAPITALISM” but i guess the above two kind of cover that haha? either way, if you look deep enough you start to notice most social upheaval is rooted in, or at least strengthened by, capitalism. get rid of capitalism and things like racism and misogyny, for example, become a lot easier to conquer… because even though a black woman is naturally put at a severe disadvantage in the US, a RICH black woman is going to be in a better position than a POOR white man if push comes to shove. why do you think football players, regardless of race, get away with raping and murdering people, among other things? (granted, many of those disadvantages would initially prevent that woman from getting to a position of monetary wealth and power in the first place, but for the sake of example let’s pretend she was born into it…)
  • all of the above things are possible because we have more than enough resources and technology to VERY EASILY meet the basic needs of every person on this planet, and that’s what i want to see. THAT comes first, everything else comes second. even if it means a few american families get 1 less big screen TV.
  1. NO POLITICIANS
  • THE US GOVERNMENT (AND MANY OTHERS) IS NOTHING BUT A REALITY SHOW AT THIS POINT. THEY ARE PUT THERE TO DISTRACT YOU AND KEEP YOU FROM NOTICING THE REAL CRIMINALS… the ONLY true requirement for a politician to run for office anymore is that THEY MUST BE CORRUPT-ABLE. don’t think you will ever be given A GOOD CHOICE in the presidential election. for someone to get to that point, man or woman, black or white, means that they are evil. they have been corrupted. they have been bribed. they have been bought. no exceptions. the exceptions ARE NOT ALLOWED to get that far. stop voting. it doesn’t matter. (local elections are arguable; presidential election is pointless.)
  1. an almost complete re-structuring of our priorities and morals, with those priorities and morals being taught to children from day 1. this can involve a huge variety of things, including but not limited to:
  • i want to see a society where a disregard for sustainability is as much of a faux pas as is a woman who neglects to shave her legs in summer. the natural resources of our planet should be used wisely and cautiously, and not to the point where our consumption becomes detrimental to ecosystems.
  • the educational system (in the US at least) needs to re-evaluate its’ purpose. it’s a very simple purpose, i believe: teach kids how to learn, and to love doing it. everything else will fall into place for them. i could talk longer on this but i’m already TL:DR…………
  • sex education, too, i think is very important. a healthy relationship to your sexual self (or lack thereof) helps to create an emotionally healthy person. we do not emphasize this and instead shame sexuality when it is genuine, and promote it when it is unrealistic and violent. unfortunate. i know i have my sexual hang ups that cause issues in my life, and i know i can’t be the only one haha

this is so long damn there are loooots other things but i suppose that covers a lot of bases and it just comes down to details after that. keep in mind, though, i don’t think these traits would automatically create an ideal, perfect society. not sure if that is possible, really. i say this because i notice when a person tries to suggest an alternative societal structure in order to eliminate the inequalities and disadvantages that are bred into our current system, people jump and pick at the potential problems there could be… and to that i say… so what? if it’s an IMPROVEMENT, especially if that improvement is an improvement on the quality of life for people… then it should be done. letting things get worse and worse because the fixes we can come up with may have potential new problems attached to them seems pretty naive to me. fix the next set of problems when we get there. we’ll be doing that for a looooong time, improving, fixing, changing, improving again… unless we stop trying altogether, give up hope, and destroy ourselves. because that’s the only thing that ever really could…

Do you have an xbox or a ps3? If you have an xbox please tell me you have at least one of the following games: Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike. My gamertag is andrewjackson5.

only a ps3… at the moment i can only play GTA V and dead space 2 because i have the 12gb slim model and my harddrive literally can’t fit in anything else after GTA and all its’ updates lol but once the mounting kit for my 320gb harddrive comes in the mail i have assassin’s creed IV, bioshock 2 and CoD ghosts to play because i’ve been way behind on the games game all these years. gotta catch up

And then there’s good ol’ America

This actually makes me so angry. The truth is right here and people see it and brush it aside. We really could make things better. But no, America apparently wants to suck forever.

Starting today, your face, name, and personal information could appear in Google ads.
Read more about the new terms here. But most importantly: opt out here. 

I love that when I unclicked the box, it said ‘Your friends will be less likely to benefit from your recommendations’ as if NOT having my browsing and searching history show up everywhere they look is a negative thing…

I guess my face and name will lend real credibility to the middle aged chronically depressed grossly unhealthy marginal poverty market.

HEY GUYS, SUPER IMPORTANT, GO AND OPT OUT ASAP.
Especially since it’s unlikely that any of us got told about this and it’s just a thing that’s happening without us knowing about it.

Oh for the love of God that makes me uncomfortable. 

All too often, when a service though a large corporation such as Google is free, you are not the customer. You are the product.

"super important" calm down like comparatively this ain’t that bad
The name and photo shown in shared endorsements are the public profile name and photo you have chosen on Google+.
This only happens when you take an action (things like +1’ing, commenting or following) –and the only people who see it are the people you’ve chosen to share that content with.
You can limit the visibility of activity outside of ads by deleting the activity or changing its visibility settings.
besides the ad part of that, which you can easily opt out of (and you don’t even need to if you don’t use motherfucking google+ and there’s no good excuse for using google+ so just… don’t do that), this just sounds a lot like facebook and also every other social network site ever?
y’all got bigger problems anyway like the government has been putting together info about your asses for years. i’m more worried about all the pictures they’ve taken of me through my webcam lol at least the picture google uses is one you fuckin’ choose…. -_-

"I have such ISSUES with Apple as a concept", she types on her MacBook charging her iPhone, with her iPod in her purse and an iPad in her heart.

Wow I just went into the apple store for the first time despite owning like 20,000 apple products and wow that is a clear glass portal to another fuckin’ world man. Employee rang me up (FOR A THIRTY DOLLAR CHARGER….) Using her phone wtf and it brought my email up when she scanned my debit card……. the bank that card came from don’t even know that e-mail…. What the fuck I’m burning an effigy of Steve Jobs over a pile of every apple product I own

justice-b:

Wow Google, thank you for the stunning support! The effort you put into representing this cause is fantastic! Like, wow, this doesn’t even compare to what you did for the DW 50th!

Word.

The Google Doodle usually depicts holidays, fun anniversaries, and exciting events.  More serious causes, like remembering 9/11, anti-abuse, and cancer awareness, are represented in a solemn manner with a ribbon at the bottom of the page.  The ribbon is a more respectful way for Google to show support than plastering it on every page in the form of a novelty “doodle,” especially when it may be triggering to some Google users.

THANK YOU

did u know the way u stop oppression is by trying really hard to make everything offensive
or rather that’s the way u gather MAD JUSTICE CRED lol
