Shamelessly ripping off the style of @boldly to make this conveniently A4 sized poster
"Why do we need a class like 'Ethics?'"
"What is the primary lesson of power?"
"A good start. More accurate to say that Power Reveals. Power amplifies one's voice so that the things once said softly are now a shout projected on the universe. Moreover, the longer one has had power, the harder it is to turn the gaze inward and change a fault. So, we train to be self critical and ethical now, that we may avoid a future tyrant."

whenever I post about doing IRL radical action I get a lot of praise and things, and a lot of people who say "I wish I could do that too". not everybody can go there and fight fascists, not everybody can go out there and march for 5 hours in a huge mob of thousands, not everybody can risk being arrested. that's ok! please, never beat yourselves up for not having the abilities of somebody who is more abled and privileged.
first and foremost these actions are done so we can live in a world where the concept of you as merely worth what you can do productively is abolished. it's ableist bullshit to beat yourself up because of what you can't do, and you deserve better than that.
second of all, the movement is so much wider than just those of us who go to demos, protests ect. there are secondary things like emotional labour to help people keep on going under capitalism, it's a deep and radical form of care that is extremely taxing and hard at times. then there's those who can organise people and groups, get the ball rolling, you don't always need to be psychically able in the internet age to help organise IRL actions. then you come to online anti fascism, taking down fash websites and propaganda, organising deplatforming of public events. producing propaganda, helping spread that online and giving it to people IRL as a resource. all of these secondary things are so key to any movement.
you're worth a lot no matter how much you can do, every person is appreciated even if they're just there to be a good friend and keep spirits high. don't ever think you're not worthy because of what you can't do
If I name three consecutive outcomes of a coin toss (for example, Heads Tails Heads), and then you name three consecutive outcomes, and then we flip a coin until one of those triplets comes up, it seems like there's no way to get an advantage in the game.
There is, though: when I name my triplet, take the middle value, reverse it, and add it to the beginning, discarding my triplet's last value. So when I name HTH, you name HHT.
Astonishingly, that's a winning strategy around 75% of the time.
fatphobia debunked, good article, asking for help
If you have any other articles or data on the subject, please let me know. I want to learn everything I can about the subject so I can make a compelling argument to refute every shitty statement I hear on this in order to change the status quo.
Game Freak made a very interesting localization decision for the American release of Pokémon Red/Blue. If you pay really close attention, you will notice that the game's dialogue is actually in English, differing from the original Japanese version, where all dialogue is in Japanese! Now that's some attention to detail.
