"Follow your heart,
but take your brain with you."
— Tupac Shakur (via difficult)
the idea that if the worlds resources were actually evenly distributed everyone would be impoverished is a myth of capitalism and is used to justify horrific inequalities that literally kill people

"“Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science. There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.”"

I love this so much
In the light of modern understanding, there is no sign of divine guidance down here, or at least nothing beyond physics and chemistry.
Instead, we see evidence of a time of remorseless and sustained violence, when vastly more worlds were destroyed than preserved.
