"Too many people in the u.s. support death and destruction without being aware of it. They indirectly support the killing of people without ever having to look at the corpses … I wondered how all those people in the states who tried to sound tough, saying that the u.s. should go in here, bomb there, take over this, attack that, would feel if they knew that were indirectly responsible for babies being burned to death. I wondered how they would feel if they were forced to take moral responsibility for that"

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society."

— Edward Bernays, Propaganda (via hoomanao)

This is the guy who convinced feminists that cigarettes were freedom torches. He also created the “spreading democracy” idea that is still used today.

THIS OKAY

You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.

Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)

Is arguing against college the smart solution? | attn: Is College Worth It?

College isn’t about education anymore. It is about buying for a piece of paper that will make you seem more attractive to potential employers (no matter how hungover you may have been in class). Most people hardly remember anything they learned past finals and oftentimes learn very few actual skills. When it comes down to it, people form a worldview and approach to life in college more than anything. It has become a way to socially divide people; a status symbol. This is especially the case when it comes to prestigious schools. When it comes down to it, college has become a mass social indoctrination program rather than a place of learning and reaching higher levels of thought.

Just thinking about the immense potential of humanity makes my heart feel like it is going to explode with joy.
But then I think about where we are now… all the suffering, all the greed and all the life wasted from it.

The saddest part is the only thing stopping us is our own minds and choices. But that is the most inspiring and empowering part. We can collectively transform humanity by choosing to change ourselves and how we live our lives.
