“If you were a U.S. leader, or an official of the National Security State, or a beneficiary of the private military and surveillance industries, why would you possibly want the war on terror to end? That would be the worst thing that could happen. It’s that war that generates limitless power, impenetrable secrecy, an unquestioning citizenry, and massive profit.” (Glenn Greenwald, The “war on terror" by design - can never end, January 4, 2013).

The military industrial complex has grown into the terror industrial complex.

I admit that my visions can never mean to other men as much as they do to me. I do not regret this. All I ask is that my results should convince seekers after truth that there is beyond doubt something worth while seeking, attainable by methods more or less like mine. I do not want to father a flock, to be the fetish of fools and fanatics, or the founder of a faith whose followers are content to echo my opinions. I want each man to cut his own way through the jungle.
Aleister Crowley (via observando)

Dad gets OfficeMax mail addressed ‘Daughter Killed in Car Crash’ - Los Angeles Times

An off-and-on customer of OfficeMax, Mike Seay has gotten the office supply company’s junk mail for years. But the mail that the grieving Lindenhurst, Ill., father said he got from OfficeMax last week was different. It was addressed to “Mike Seay, Daughter Killed in Car Crash.” Strange as that sounds, the mail reached the right guy. Seay’s daughter Ashley, 17, was killed in a car crash with her boyfriend last year. OfficeMax somehow knew. And in a world where bits of personal data are mined from customers and silently sold off and shuffled among corporations, Seay appears to be the victim of some marketing gone horribly wrong.


Fuck no

If you want to help secure the rights of women all over the world go here.
If you want to help people from north korea go here.
If you want to help stop child labor go here
If you want to help people escape from their current situation go here
If you want to help refugees reunite with their families go here

If you want to permanently help the people who are still living in inhumane conditions all over the globe, that grow up experiencing war, violence and discrimination, be political! Go vote, write articles, educate every single person you meet, never shut your mouth, make people aware of the fact that we are still far away from global equality, freedom and peace.  

Please do not remove this caption, if you repost, link back to this post.

This is important.

This is incredibly important but PLEASE DO NOT DONATE TO LIBERTY IN NORTH KOREA THEY SPEND A VERY LARGE PORTION OF THEIR MONEY ON THEMSELVES AND NOT ACTUALLY EFFECTIVELY HELPING NORTH KOREANS.

If you want to help North Koreans please go here.

When his majesty saw them, he was enraged against them, like his father, Montu, lord of Thebes. He seized the adornments of battle, and arrayed himself in his coat of mail […] His majesty was like Sutekh, the great in strength, smiting and slaying among them; his majesty hurled them headlong, one upon another into the water of the Orontes.”

The Battle of Kadesh against the Hittites. The shown scene is from the second court of the Ramesseum, the Egyptian mortuary temple of Pharaoh Ramesses II, dating to Dynasty 19.

In this particular detail we can observe Hittite troops reaching out to their defeated comrades, who are drowning in the river Orontes.

Quoted at the start of the post is part of the Egyptian account of the Battle of Kadesh, translated by James Henry Breasted (Ancient Records of Egypt: Historical Documents. Chicago: 1906, III:136-147).
