I Wish Liberals Were As Radical As the RIght Thinks They Are

 

 

A followup to Why The Left Will Always Lose, we really need to talk about what happened to Lindsay Ellis.

 

She's a prominent YouTuber, one hell of a progressive essayist, and yet she was chased off Twitter for daring to call a movie derivative. People on social media somehow twisted that into claiming she was hating on Asian culture or erasing Asian voices or something. She has been an ally for y

It’s the early 1900s, and a struggling freelance author is starving while he waits for editors to get back to him. These editors don’t know it, but their decision determines whether this man eats or starves.

This unnamed writer is not lazy or stupid.

Salvador Dalí
“The difference between false memories and true ones is the
same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the
most real, the most brilliant.”
Salvador Dali

George Orwell
“Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”
George Orwell

Mark Twain
“The so-called Christian nations are the most enlightened and progressive ... but in spite of their religion, not because of it. The Church has opposed every innovation and discovery from the day of Galileo down to our own time, when the use of anesthetic in childbirth was regarded as a sin because it avoided the biblical curse pronounced against Eve. And every step in astronomy and geology ever taken has been opposed by bigotry and superstition. The Greeks surpassed us in artistic culture and in architecture five hundred years before Christian religion was born.”
Mark Twain

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”

“The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but 'That's funny...”
