Sometimes I wonder whether I have any real intelligence or if I just have enough random bits of surface knowledge to bullshit my way through most things.

It is difficult for me to put into words, but simply put, University students started a class boycott movement demanding democracy and universal suffrage from the Hong Kong and Chinese Government this…

Hundreds of Colorado students are fighting back against dangerous text book changes

A Colorado school district has come under fire for trying to change its history curriculum — and its own students have schooled it on what real American history is.

Earlier this month, the school district of Jefferson County, Colo. — the second-largest district in the state — announced it was considering a change to the Advanced Placement U.S. history curriculum to “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and not “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.”

If the proposal passes, the district’s conservative-majority school board would establish a committee to review textbooks and other classroom materials to see if they meet this new criteria. In other words, any textbook that didn’t seem “patriotic enough” (an aggressively arbitrary and potentially very dangerous label) would be cut. 

So teachers and students walked out | Follow micdotcom

"The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile."

"Three simple rules in life. 1. If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it. 2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place."

 “Through the efforts of so many people the candle inside the cavern convent never blows out, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, whether day or night. There’s only one reason why that candle always remains lit. It is for the sake of all the lonely people that lives outside that cavern. Those of you who feels lonely, and think that you’re alone… Know that someone out of there is praying 24 hours a day, just for you. Please remember this. You’ve never been alone, not even for one single moment”.

"Tonight, I don′t want to bid good-night to all of you, but to myself. I have always asked other people, "How are you," and wished them good night, but I have never done so for myself. I hope that all of you can ask yourselves, "How are you?" and wish yourself a good-night. So, good night as well today, Jang Jae Yeol."
