Gaming in a time when us long abused scapegoats have risen with pitchforks in hand. A socialist living in a time of political, racial, and gender McCarthyite witch-hunts that involve no shortage of ideological civil war. An anti-theist in a time of mass-enlightenment via the internet and superstition's initial stages of total structural collapse. In these alone I cannot mark myself a revolutionary but at the same time cannot help but find kinship with those of revolutionary flavor.

The following is random wisdom, enjoy.

Take the most serious of things and laugh at them. Take the silliest of things and examine them.

Anger is the most direct emotion, as well as the most useless. Its only use is to indicate to others how weak you truly can be.

Choose your battles; pointing a shotgun at the world from space isn't particularly effective, nor is pushing against a mountain with your bare hands.

Live for humanity, for yourself, but not the universe. Though interesting and often pretty, it can't very well sustain conversation.

One judges all things but must do so accordingly, neither vindictively nor leniently.

Never begrudge the wasp. Know its malice, then confront it or simply avoid it all together.

To blame an ‘ism' for the ills of an ‘ist' is to blame God for the acts of his deluded worshipers. Though to only blame a single virion is often to discount the virus. All elements must be recognized.

Obsession is impractical in every circumstance as every circumstance is bound to inevitability; an end.

Raw honesty leaves a bitter taste only irony can mask.

In every sentence another looses from their lips, creates with the pressing of buttons, or illustrates with the ink of a pen is information they think you worthy of. It is an incredibly useful way to judge a person if well understood.

Stating that someone's opinion is just their opinion is redundant and merely a polite way of saying, 'fuck your opinion.'

Contrarianism is only a component of understanding and information processing, to truly be a contrarian is to be no less a drone than one of God's sheep—to compulsively act and think without dimension.

Self-indoctrination is one of the most important things to master. Without it, who controls you?

Offense to the mere presence of dissent or opposition is at the core of modern society's failing. In a way it is the best indicator of man's awareness of his mortality, for he has no interest in his own end and knows no safer way to proceed than to dissuade his brethren from malice altogether.

I continue to struggle with which is the more informative gesture, a sneeze or a woman's smile.

"Living men are bound by time… Thus, their lives have an urgency. This gives them ambition—makes them choose those things that are most important and cling more tightly to that which they hold dear. Their lives have seasons and rites of passage and consequences. And ultimately, an end. But what of a life with no urgency? What then of ambition? What then of love?"

Among the major flaws in humanity is this time of confusion, the once surely predetermined fate of all under the dominion of the almighty & eternal father now is being expunged from the modern world's new foundation consisting of reason, science, and humanity. Man struggles now to understand, he is the only one who can change his fate and only on that day humanity will finally witness a new era of prosperity.

To sit comfortably with a single view is to neglect the complexity of reality. And it's boring.

"How unfortunate and how narrowing a thing it is for a man to have wealth who makes a god of it instead of a servant." ~Mark Twain

A man unwilling to practice diplomacy is a man who’s stumbled into intellectual purgatory, somewhere between conversation and genocide.

'I'd sooner respect the man wronged who remembered than the man who was wronged and forgave.'
~Christopher Hitchens

"If you find yourself being angry at someone lower on the economic ladder, there's a pretty good chance you're being manipulated by someone higher on the economic ladder."
~Jimmy Dore

"Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy."

"In this country, I've been told, "That's offensive" as if those two words constitute an argument or a comment. Not to me they don't."
~Christopher Hitchens

"I miss the way there used to be an international left and I'm very distressed & appalled at what's rushed in to fill the vacuum of the critique of liberal capitalism. What's come in to fill that gap is much more something like theocratic primitivism if not worse, fascism, that is now the alternative to the globalized capitalist structure. That's an even greater reproach, if you like, but one must look the facts in the face."
~Christopher Hitchens

"Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
~Mark Twain

Heterosexuality to me is a bit like being vegetarian. I can't help but find some otherwise wonderful food repugnant. In that sense, you have to somewhat pity homosexuals; they're the vegans.

"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."
~Thomas Paine

"There isn't much difference between left and right but millions of people live or die between them."

I love North Korea as an example of tyranny at its most extreme, turning its own leaders into unicorn-riding gods. They actually prove to be a quite useful reference for what the worst of religion-infused state power can do. And Iran, they're simply among the least terrible Islamic nations.

I found myself being apologetic for Russia in the Ukraine simply because everyone in the United States simply is ignorant of the history of Russia and what Communism is. I got really ****** when I heard our politicians criticizing Russia for invading a country for resources, because that's exactly what we've been doing for 50 years. How can people be pro-America yet hate Russia for invading countries at the same time? It's hypocritical! But I realize now that I have to be the critic of everybody, regardless of how Eastern Europe and Asia has been bullied by the West for so long.

Imperialism is imperialism, a global power that has the power to do something somewhere is inherently given the choice to act or not act. The United States has a history of getting people killed far away, Russia has a history of personally killing their neighbors.

Their both pricks, the United States just happens to be the most civil of the two. Which is why, as **** as it may be, I'd sooner see Ukraine a US puppet than a Russian doormat. Plus I can't stand the ******* Orthodoxy, this world's bad enough off with one group of infallible ******** not supported by the state.

Where main stream media promotes the establishment to receive generic information, real journalists such as VICE's respect the identity of their often influential sources and often protect their identity.
