It’s become de rigueur among certain hipster music fans and critics to dis Pearl Jam as mediocre, talentless, etc. Google “Pearl Jam overrated” and you’ll see what I mean. Yet many of these people seem to forget that Pearl Jam was a fresh blast of fury when they first came out in 1992 with Ten, and that they can’t be held responsible for all the lesser talents who aped their sound to get popular."

A thoughtless citizen of a democracy is a delinquent citizen of a democracy

"A democratic society, an open society, places an extraordinary intellectual responsibility on ordinary men and women because we are governed by what we think.  We are governed by our opinions.  So the content of our opinions, the quality of our opinions, and the quality of the formation of our opinions basically determines the character of our society.  That means that in a democracy in an open society a thoughtless citizen of a democracy is a delinquent citizen of a democracy.  The important thing is that we have reasons for our beliefs, that we articulate those reasons, and that we can defend them."
- Leon Wieseltier

We have to be able to criticize bad ideas, and Islam is the Mother lode of bad ideas... My criticism of Islam is a criticism of beliefs and their consequences—but my fellow liberals reflexively view it as an expression of intolerance toward people...

Like many secular liberals, [Affleck and Kristof] refuse to accept the abundant evidence that vast numbers of Muslims believe dangerous things about infidels, apostasy, blasphemy, jihad, and martyrdom. And they do not realize that these doctrines are about as controversial under Islam as the resurrection of Jesus is under Christianity...

The litmus test for intellectual honesty on this point—which so many liberals fail—is to admit that one can draw a straight line from specific doctrines in Islam to the intolerance and violence we see in the Muslim world.

Poem For People That Are Understandably Too Busy To Read Poetry
by Stephen Dunn (h/t +Hannah Hasch)

Relax. This won't last long. 
Or if it does, or if the lines 
make you sleepy or bored, 
give in to sleep, turn on 
the T.V., deal the cards. 
This poem is built to withstand 
such things. Its feelings 
cannot be hurt. They exist  
somewhere in the poet, 
and I am far away. 
Pick it up anytime. Start it 
in the middle if you wish. 
It is as approachable as melodrama, 
and can offer you violence 
if it is violence you like. Look, 
there's a man on a sidewalk; 
the way his leg is quivering 
he'll never be the same again. 
This is your poem 
and I know you're busy at the office 
or the kids are into your last nerve. 
Maybe it's sex you'vealways wanted.

Poem For People That Are Understandably Too Busy To Read Poetry
by Stephen Dunn (h/t +Hannah Hasch)

Relax. This won't last long. 
Or if it does, or if the lines 
make you sleepy or bored, 
give in to sleep, turn on 
the T.V., deal the cards. 
This poem is built to withstand 
such things. Its feelings 
cannot be hurt. They exist  
somewhere in the poet, 
and I am far away. 
Pick it up anytime. Start it 
in the middle if you wish. 
It is as approachable as melodrama, 
and can offer you violence 
if it is violence you like. Look, 
there's a man on a sidewalk; 
the way his leg is quivering 
he'll never be the same again. 
This is your poem 
and I know you're busy at the office 
or the kids are into your last nerve. 
Maybe it's sex you've always wanted. 
Well, they lie together 
like the party's unbuttoned coats, 
slumped on the bed 
waiting for drunken arms to move them. 
I don't think you want me to go on; 
everyone has his expectations, but this 
is a poem for the entire family. 
Right now, Budweiser 
is dripping from a waterfall, 
deodorants are hissing into armpits 
of people you resemble, 
and the two lovers are dressing now, 
saying farewell. 
I don't know what music this poem 
can come up with, but clearly 
it's needed. For it's apparent  
they will never see each other again 
and we need music for this 
because there was never music when he or she 
left you standing on the corner. 
You see, I want this poem to be nicer  
than life. I want you to look at it 
when anxiety zigzags your stomach 
and the last tranquilizer is gone 
and you need someone to tell you 
I'll be here when you want me 
like the sound inside a shell. 
The poem is saying that to you now. 
But don't give anything for this poem. 
It doesn't expect much. It will never say more 
than listening can explain. 
Just keep it in your attache case  
or in your house. And if you're not asleep 
by now, or bored beyond sense, 
the poem wants you to laugh. Laugh at 
yourself, laugh at this poem, at all poetry. 
Come on: 

Good. Now here's what poetry can do. 

Imagine yourself a caterpillar. 
There's an awful shrug and, suddenly, 
You're beautiful for as long as you live. ___

Eventually everyone will have a Google Account and possibly have a come to Google moment when they will dip their toe into the waters of Plus. No matter if they’re my friend or not, no matter if we’re already connected or attached through friendship, I can potentially connect with you in a very real way no matter who you are, where you live, how old you are, or whether or not we’ve ever actually met. Then, if we have even a modicum of chemistry, we can then explore our likes, dislikes, passions, interests, and we can even build a larger and more persistent community of purpose, action, circumstance, interest, inquiry, position, place, or practice by attracting, including – in Circles and Groups, presumably – and creating real tribes of choice outside our families of obligation and blood which we have at home, in our physical towns and villages. We can use the strength that we have in concert to make real world changes, allowing the confidence inspired by belonging and acceptance to overpower the natural feelings of fealty one tends to have for the status quo. I get it. That’s powerful."___

"There's a reason non-Americans find our tipping culture so patently baffling; to the residents of basically any other First World Nation, the idea that food service workers should make $2.13/hour and have their entire income subsidized by what essentially amounts to coerced charity doesn't just border on the preposterous, it stages an armed incursion into Bananatown.

Imagine That -- I’m Still Anti-War.
July 16 2014


Most of us have heard John Lennon sing 


“You may say I’m a dreamer,… but I’m not the only one.”
 
And some of us, after another morning dose of news coverage full of
death and destruction, feel the need to reach out to others to see if
we are not alone in our outrage. With about a dozen assorted
ongoing conflicts in the news everyday, and with the stories 
becoming more horrific, the level of sadness becomes unbearable. 
And what becomes of our planet when that sadness becomes apathy? 
Because we feel helpless. And we turn our heads and turn the page.
 
Currently, I’m full of hope. That hope springs from the multitudes of 
people that our band has been fortunate enough to play for night 
after night here in Europe. To see flags of so many different nations, 
and to have these huge crowds gathered peacefully and joyfully is 
the exact inspiration behind the words I felt the need to emphatically relay.
When attempting to make a plea for more peace in the world at a rock concert,
we are reflecting the feelings of all those we have come in contact with 
so we may all have a better understanding of each other. 
 
That’s not something I’m going to stop anytime soon. Call me naïve. 
I’d rather be naïve, heartfelt and hopeful than resigned to say 
nothing for fear of misinterpretation and retribution.
 
The majority of humans on this planet are more consumed by the
pursuit of love, health, family, food and shelter than any kind of war. 
 
War hurts. It hurts no matter which sides the bombs are falling on.
 
With all the global achievements in modern technology,
enhanced communication and information devices, cracking the 
human genome, land rovers on Mars etc., do we really have to 
resign ourselves to the devastating reality that conflict will be 
resolved with bombs, murder and acts of barbarism?
 
We are such a remarkable species. Capable of creating beauty. 
Capable of awe-inspiring advancements. We must be capable of
resolving conflicts without bloodshed.
 
I don’t know how to reconcile the peaceful rainbow of flags we see 
each night at our concerts with the daily news of a dozen global 
conflicts and their horrific consequences. I don’t know how to
process the feeling of guilt and complicity when I hear about the 
deaths of a civilian family from a U.S. drone strike. But I know that 
we can’t let the sadness turn into apathy. And I do know we are 
better off when we reach out to each other.
 


“I hope someday you’ll join us,…”
 


Won’t you listen to what the man said. 


  


— Eddie Vedder

Conservatives' have a "threat-oriented biology" from the Pleistocene epoch:

"There is by now evidence from a variety of laboratories around the world using a variety of methodological techniques leading to the virtually inescapable conclusion that the cognitive-motivational styles of leftists and rightists are quite different. This research consistently finds that conservatism is positively associated with heightened epistemic concerns for order, structure, closure, certainty, consistency, simplicity, and familiarity, as well as existential concerns such as perceptions of danger, sensitivity to threat, and death anxiety."

Knee jerk reactionaries in a world that scares the SH!T  out them.

Excerpt from The Divide by Matt Taibbi:

Fun fact: When the economy crashed in 2008, the federal government formed an investigatory group to look into the causes. That Financial Crisis Inquiry Committee was given a budget of $ 9.8 million. Committee chairman Phil Angelides acidly noted that this was “roughly one-seventh of the budget of Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” Meanwhile, that same year the federal drug enforcement budget leaped from $ 13.275 billion to $ 15.278 billion . That meant that just the increase in the national drug enforcement budget for the year of the biggest financial crisis since the Depression was roughly two hundred times the size of the budget for the sole executive branch effort at formally investigating the causes of financial corruption.

The reason kings and tyrants so easily succumb to and encourage religion throughout history is because at some point they realize that the only possible way to justify the absurdity of their absolute power is to believe in one that could grant such power in the first place.

Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
"This museum was designed in the nineteenth century to function as a replacement for the old cathedrals: It was to be a cathedral of art.  Culture was to replace scripture.  The ambition was huge: art would bring us meaning, consolation, direction and comfort, just as the pages of the Bible once had."

This article is so ridiculous.

If more "Americans" are watching soccer today, it's only because of the demographic switch effected by Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration law. I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer. One can only hope that, in addition to learning English, these new Americans will drop their soccer fetish with time.
