Keeping Hope Alive


[snort] [snoring] (off-screen): AHEM! Thought Slime: *grumbles groggily* [continued snoring] (off-screen): ACTION! Thought Slime: [slurring] Yeah… [tap] Hi… I’m Brain Slime from YouTube.com/BrainSlime [sic] I was just thinking about how we’re all gonna die! And it’s gonna suck for the entire time until we do… Let’s talk about that today! [Upbeat music] [Record scratching] (secret slime transition noises) In October, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC released a report detailing just how incredibly fucked we may be. It’s 700 pages of Boring Science Words, so let me sum it up for you: We have about 10 to 12 years to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, or shit is about to get really bad Everything from global famines, to mass flooding And an unprecedented extinction event -BEYOND the one that humanity has already been causing for the past 200 years- is on the table Unless we can get our runaway carbon emissions sorted out before the clock strikes midnight We don’t have to just *reduce* our carbon dioxide emissions – and that’d be hard enough!… In a world so horny for coal power We have to get to a NET *NEGATIVE* EMISSION! That means we have to start pulling carbon dioxide OUT of the atmosphere. And we need to pull a whole hell of a lot of it: Worst case scenario? We have to pull about 1,000 GIGATONS …out of the atmosphere… by 2100… That’s two *quadrillion* pounds To put that in perspective, That’s roughly the weight of 5 million blue whales worth of carbon dioxide. Incidentally, there are about 12,000 blue whales on Earth at best right now – in case you were wondering – how blue whales were doin’… Pouring this one out for all the blue whales who couldn’t make it here today. …Actually fuck the whales. If we want to keep global warming to under 1.5 degrees Celsius That means we’re going to require a mass mobilization about equivalent to WWII. So you’ll excuse me if I don’t fancy our odds. But if we just focused on that. If that was the only thing we had to do – maybe we could pull it off… There’s so many things we have to do There’s so many problems in the world that are getting worse and should have been solved a long time ago. I know I talk about this a lot. But have you noticed that fascism is back? And in a big way? And not the wink-wink, nudge-nudge “Traditional fascism” you might be used to, but full-blown jackbooted Nazi style fascism! Hey, did you notice that concurrent with the rise in fascism – Far-right nationalist monster people have started being elected to major liberal democracies? There’s also a huge upswing in fringe right wing political violence right now! They’re getting bolder and they’re getting scarier oh, and because I know you’re you’re saying “both sides do it” right now: According to the Washington Post, “of the 263 incidents of domestic terrorism [in the United States] between 2010 and the end of 2017 a third of them – 92 — were committed by right-wing attackers.” More than supposed left wing terrorism, and more than jihadi terrorism – – in fact, more than both of them combined. But it’s not just terrorists getting a slice of the action! The state is also escalating violence against minorities and immigrants… Which is saying something, because the previous level of violence was already pretty damn horrifying. Hey, did you know that in my country, the supposed Liberal Paradise of Canada, We’ve been practicing the forced sterilization of indigenous women as recently as last year? That’s genocide, no matter how you slice it. We’re committing a genocide right here, and right now. I mean, I wasn’t naive enough to think that Canada’s treatment of its indigenous population wasn’t brutal and cruel. I knew we were committing a cultural genocide. I guess I thought that the days of outright exterminationism were behind us But… I guess I only thought that because I didn’t know that they never really stopped… I should’ve known… But I just wasn’t listening. 10% of the world’s population control 50% of the world’s wealth, and that problem is getting worse, as more and more of the world’s money goes to a handful of rich parasites The rest of us are working longer hours and making less money! Pair that with an increasingly automated workforce taking away more and more of the menial jobs that used to make up huge swaths of the job market- and it’s not lookin’ sO GOOod!! Here in Canada about 30% of adults have NOTHING saved for retirement, And in the United States? That number jumps to about 50%. An increasing number of people are working part-time or contract work meaning they’re not paying into social insurance programs and don’t have pensions or medical benefits. Now consider that we have an aging population; and they’re gonna need to retire at some point, and shit is starting to look pretty bleak. *crunches on pills* Our government and politicians aren’t doing anything to take the pressure off; in the United States, consumer debt is Skyrocketing, and medical expenses are the #1 contributing factor to bankruptcy So how do their politicians respond? Well, either they’re outright monsters, desperately clawing back whatever meager gains people have made in the past ten years, or, theyre useless ding-dongs! Trying to stem the popular demand for Medicare For All, with vague platitudes… “…We were too cautious. We were too namby-pamby. This is sharp! Bold!…” Oh, thank god. Oh, thank god Chuck. I am so glad to hear that. You’ve been too “namby-pamby”? I mean that’s a pretty gross way to put that but I’m totally on board with the sentiment. So let’s hear your Bold, Decisive plan! “…Well Democrats unify behind single-payer health care-” “Well- our economic agenda – we’ve talked so much about health care, that we are not going to address that in this agenda, w-” Don’t worry Americans! …You’re saved. *low reverberations* Okay, so the government isn’t helping. But- -what about the Free Market I’ve heard so much about? I mean not with climate change, obviously. Did you know that 63% of the human caused climate change is the result of the carbon emissions from just 90 companies? *nervously* Cool, cool! Coolcoolcool. Cool… Yeah. All right So, cool, very good! And they’re not gonna help with consumer debt either, they’re just gonna take advantage of our desperation to push more and more predatory lending on us You know, when they’re not just actively lying to the consumers face to defraud them and… get away with it… Because despite what you may have been told about the market setting us free, they seem to be pretty comfortable selling us out to authoritarians when it helps them make a quick buck. Look how quickly major publications started rehabilitating fascism the very second they knew there was a market for it! Which shouldn’t be all that surprising I guess, because the far-right’s entire purpose is to shield capital from the revenge of the exploited… Big Business won’t save us. They -can’t- save us! They’re what we need saving -FROM-! They’re exploiting us, to death! That is their prerogative. The powerful have never cared about the powerless because I mean, why would they? They don’t have to listen to powerless people, because what are powerless people gonna do about it? But you’d think that the powerless people would at least be pissed off about it. You’d think we could all commiserate maybe try to think of some way to make our lives a little easier by working together… … Instead, we see the powerless staking their entire identities on worshipping the powerful! Studying and mythologizing them as Superhuman Pillars of Accomplishment to be imitated and obeyed, and I don’t like it, but I get why – they’re what? Six major media conglomerates? They’re all run by rich old men who have a vested interest in making sure the only perspectives you’re able to consider are the ones that make sure their wealth and power are Unchallengable. And aside from the media, the only other formal source of supposedly definitive information that most people get in their entire lives are from schools. Schools regulated by the state, which will not allow the plastic brains of kiddos to receive anything they consider subversive, which kinda sucks! Because they consider things like *safe sex* subversive. They consider things like… Anything from history that isn’t from the perspective of a white person… Subversive. Academia isn’t educating you to make you more “enriched” as a person, or to be more “productive”. You’re educated to be obedient, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that most people are unreasonably deferential to power; most people think of the rich and powerful as their superiors – a higher tier of human being – but they’re not. They’re a nepotistic death cult of buffoons, sycophants and psychopaths. So, to sum up… The world has zillions of intractable problems some of which are genuine existential threats to the human race, and nobody with any power in society is interested in doing anything about it because they all benefit from it. And I think the worst part is that we could fix these problems. I mean, there’s so many more of us than there are of them. We outnumber them by like 99 to 1?? But we just don’t… I don’t know if we’re too scared? or- -we just don’t care? But- – we’re letting ’em win. They’ve already won. ‘fights over. Nothin’ left to do but enjoy our slow slide into oblivion…. Cheers. *thonk* Hello friends, don’t be glum! We’re fine. We’re fine!! – probably – Look, I don’t want to downplay the problems that we’re facing; they’re huge, and they’re severe, but but we can beat them. I think… I don’t know, maybe we can’t, but we have to try! Cuz’ if we don’t try we’re just giving them what they want; they want us scared and they want us beaten down. The thing is: it’s true that nobody is coming to save us but in a way that’s kind of a good thing. We have to save ourselves. If someone else came along and fixed our problems for us. We’d be beholden to them. Instead we’re forced by these horrible circumstances to create the world that -we want- to live in, not the middle ground that some bureaucrat could offer us, And as bad as things are there, are rays of hope all around us: Look at the brave work of indigenous water protectors standing tall against monolithic corporate interests in the violence of the state. And just as the far-right is on the rise, So too does the far-left rise to meet it, for every act of state terrorism or fascist, thuggery we see huge outpourings of mutual aid and community defense, not only from our comrades but from all sorts of people. People who just want to help. People are finally ready to start taking these problems seriously! Even the bad guys – the Nationalists – the fash-for-brains – They believe that horseshit because they looked at the system as it was and realized it wasn’t doing anything for them, it was offering them nothing but more grinding poverty and less job security. Probably wasn’t hard for people to convince them of some dumb scapegoat like “it’s the immigrants” or the Jews or whatever. But the good news is that that means it’s going to be easier to push them in the right direction too, which, confusingly, in this analogy is the Left Direction As old prejudices die away, people are more willing to consider radical solutions. What once seemed like a lonesome fantasy is quickly developing into the Orthodox position. Even moderate liberals have taken note of the sea change – – they’ve started calling themselves “socialist” to court the growing leftist base, and you can expect that to continue, because if there’s one upside to continuous mismanagement by authority figures it’s that it tends to erode people’s confidence in authority. And, My Friends, we have entered into an unprecedented age of mismanagement! The whole world is being taken over by grifters and bunglers, and you don’t have to work very hard to convince people that a doofus like THIS… isn’t qualified to be in charge of a Burger King, let alone an entire country! There’s a big secret that powerful people don’t want you to know… The secret is this: Everywhere oppression has existed, so too has resistance. No group of oppressed people has ever just laid down and taken it, they have always fought back because that’s -who we are- as a species; You and I are not going to dishonor that human legacy by laying down and dying now… We’ve got a world to save! So it’s time to roll up our sleeves and just get it done already! And sure, it’s gonna be hard but that’s never stopped us as a species before. We do amazing things all the dang time! We did surgery on a grape… We can do anything… Now is the time to make a stand, to stand up against the forces of- Oh! Hold on… Yeah, I’m getting a note in this earpiece that I’ve been wearing the whole time, uh… It looks like my legal counsel wants me to read a message *deadpan voice*: Thought Slime is a satirical YouTube channel in which the host portrays a leftist radical. Anything he says which could be interpreted as seditious is to be recognized under Articles 69 to 420 of the YouTube Doofus Protection Act as, legally speaking – Just a prank bro. All right. Now that we got that nerd shit out of the way, *demonic voice*: LETS REVOLT! [Air horn noises] You might feel like we’re not ready for freedom yet, and you’re right, we’re not! But we’re never going to be ready until we *are* free. So that means we have to act before we’re ready and that’s scary, it’s scary because we could fuck all of this up, and… The stakes are pretty high. But it’s so much more dangerous to do nothing! And, for the record I’m not saying that we have to storm the Bastille And, and – guillotine Mark Zuckerberg, or – throw Molotov cocktails at police cars. There’s so many ways to resist and fight back. You can agitate in your workplace, You can wheat-paste agitprop in your neighborhood! You can start a food-serve! You can start a squat. You can show up with 200 of your buddies when Nazis are marching through town and hassle them! Don’t just cast a ballot every four years! Stand up right now and disrupt! For the record if it sounds like I’m lecturing you I’m including myself in this by the way I need to do a lot more. I’m conscious of that, and I will- mark my words on that. And if enough of us stand together and fight back we’ll turn the tides. Because not one of us has the power to save the world alone, but all of us together! All of us together *do*. But hey, maybe you feel like the world is still doomed. Maybe you feel like there’s just nothing we can do about it. You still feel hopeless. That’s fair enough! Can’t say I blame you on that one. But… We can’t really afford to be hopeless right now. So, if you don’t have room in your heart for hope… Then try spite! The ghouls, who put us in this situation, didn’t do it because they needed to. They didn’t even do it for luxury, because let’s be honest… They could live luxuriously on one 1000th of the wealth that they have accrued… They did it just to prove that they could. And even though they might have destroyed the planet, they’re going to live the rest of their lives in the greatest luxury, in the greatest comfort that any human being has ever experienced. So I ask you, does that sound fair? Does that sound like justice? So, if you don’t believe that standing up and fighting has the capability to make your life any better Consider that it might make theirs a little bit worse. Because every time we stand up and fight back, every time we flex the collective muscle of the working class, some rich asshole has a very bad day. Maybe we won’t save the world Maybe all we’ll accomplish is that we’ll piss off a few oligarchs on our way towards extinction, but let’s do it anyway; let’s do it just to prove that we can. This video has already been a little bit corny, But I want to get even cornier and end on an excerpt from a poem: This is from Percy Brice Shelley’s The Mask of Anarchy: “And these words shall then become like oppression’s thundered doom Ringing through each heart and brain heard again again again Rise like lions after slumber in unvanquishable number Shake your chains to earth like dew, which in sleep had fallen on you Ye are many. They are few.” I was worried that that ending would sound a little scary and that’s why I put on this bowtie in case you were curious because… I figured “Nobody’s gonna be scared of someone in a bowtie”! Good night!! If you don’t know where to start, check out earth-strike.com and get access to a huge community of Left-O’s and Greenoids! Organizing a massive international campaign to end climate change once and for all! And it needs your help!

    Randomly stumbled across your channel and instantly fell in love, I've already binge watched several videos in the past couple hours. It's awesome to see someone convey these thoughts in a loose, traditional youtuber fashion, instead of being like a super serious channel.

    I hope I get my channel running strong one day. But I'm a master at starting things and not following through. Takes everything I have just get through each day of doing what I must do to (barely) be able to afford to support my existence, let alone pursue creative endeavours on top of it

    I may get there, I may not. But thanks for giving me food for thought and some laughs along the way 🙂

    Seriously though, THANK YOU for this. I found it extremely inspiring for someone who has been abused by the system. I wish this video had millions of views. You speak the absolute TRUTH as I binge yours and others vids in search of like-minded people – do not stop!

  16. Silene says:

    Would anyone be privy to some resources/forums/groups that are in the know with planned demonstrations and all that? I'm pretty in the political loop but I usually don't hear about a demonstration until after the fact, and I've only ever been to one major protest.
    I just wanna help DISRUPT.

    Think how much the bourgaoisie and the state has caused.
    Imperialist wars, global warming, genocide, lying, famines, tobacco companies and exploitation. And when we rise up to them we are the bad guys.

  28. haman derra says:

    I see no point in doing anything pleasurable and just lie to everyone including my shrink in order to get through the day. The only relief for any of us is a swift and painless death, and even that will only he reserved for the rich. Because of this, I feel nothing but contempt for anyone I see regardless of who they are. I just want to die, and it makes perfect sense why I want to.

  29. Patrick Skramstad says:

    Keith Olbermann Special Comment "citizens United vs federal elections commission" please look for this YouTube video. I tried to put paste the link but it didn't let me… I believe you will find the information more precise. As in it will give you more details on what happened. When did it go wrong for the common person.

  30. Stale Bagelz says:

    5:00 you said it was 1 percent in a previous video, i don't mean to be mean, but get your shit straight man

  31. Envelion says:

    I'm all here for the spite-driven resistance. I don't know if I believe that people are going to revolt in numbers that will change the tide, but I do hope we make life more difficult for those in power.

  32. Genosse Rotbart says:

    This is actually are great slogan: "The only right direction is the LEFT!"

    Share it! 😀

  33. Doop Dong says:

    Personally I'm going on a combo of hope and spite. I am super-duper looking forward to being more active in resistance after I get out of college, since as it is now I'm busy enough keeping on pace. Just need anouther year 1.5, then I'll be doing my part and, I hope at least, more.

  34. Jose P. Montoya says:

    The best revolution is education, free unbiased education on all topics by all people to all people. It's what we've been trying to do historically in the past few millenia and our 'leaders' mostly get in the way due to their ego/pride. That can get taken care of with education, too.

    Thanks for doing your part in spreading things around. May all of us one day be literate in communication.

  35. Salvador Mota Alvarez says:

    Can anyone explain to me what a food serve is?

  36. Chris Knight says:

    Teachers can teach about climate change but most people won’t care and won’t want to learn about it or change their lives or take any action on it because most people only care about themselves and only in the short term.

  37. Brynden Rivers says:

    Hope is the greatest obstacle for radical revolution because it's only when people have hope that they're willing to give the current system "just one more chance". Only when people have lost all hope will they actually be willing to make a full commitment toward eradicating everything that currently is. It's only because of those without hope at all that any of us should have hope.

    On another note I hope you are not like 99.9% of the population in that you have a completely unsubstantiated religious like belief in the fallacy that technology will miraculously save us from the inevitable environmental collapse. It's crazy how people believe that so convincingly without any evidence available to support such a claim.

  38. Robert Stan says:

    Guys, look up Mario Savio's "the Machine" speech. It's one of my favorite speeches ever, up there with MLK or Thomas Sankara.

  39. mija says:

    I love your content and videos! It makes it really easy to share these ideas with my friends and family. Since you talk about climate change, I was wondering if you’ve considered implementing low waste techniques in your life. The system is linear right now, so it’s isn’t perfectly zero waste, but just doing a little bit is better than doing nothing. It also helps me feel like I’m resisting capitalism, so that’s obviously a pro.

  40. BPDMF says:

    Can't we just eat the rich?

  41. Connor Rice says:

    Salvation seems impossible. But vengeance, thats something I can devote my life to

    Someone really needs to design a "fashionable" windmill. If people like the look of them better, they won't be whiny crybabies about us trying to save the world.

  46. A Horse Of Course says:

    The only direction the fash need to be pushed in is off a fucking cliff and onto a field of shit-smeared spikes.

  47. Joe Blundell says:

    The understanding climate is quite a kettle of fish to pin solely on carbon. The planet is on the 10,000 year uptick of the Milankovitch cycle, and we should expect to see overall warming for at least that amount of time, then a mass re-glaciation and cool down, This kind of data has been clearly shown by many core samples and astronomical calculations. And as far as the Co2 thing, meh, 30 million years ago during the Paleogene era the ppm of Co2 had been sitting at 2700, and then the Himalayas formed and sequestered it down to current levels, I see no reason why the oxidation rate of 50 km high mountains going into the upper troposphere couldn't take it the same way now. The real issue should be pollution of waterways and groundwater, that is truly where mankind's "bread is buttered" and the greatest threat to life, but the Co2 smoke screen has people focusing on the wrong thing. Unchecked industrialization and urbanization is a major danger, better ways to build cities, individual homes, and better materials to process is the answer. May I suggest a self heating and cooling neigh indestructible greenhouse/greenhome design “the core home dot com”

    Your food shortage worries are a concern under modern farming practices for sure, but I suggest the most easily growable and nutritious food source on the planet "hemp seed the most nutritionally complete food source on the planet". It's an annual that throws down a tap root like a tree, which makes it a deep mineral accumulator, and nitrogen fixation crop. It can go to seed in as little as 60 days, and without the need for chemical pesticides, fertilizers, antifungals, or even the need for watering after established properly. Food scarcity is a legal issue more than a scientific one, in so far as we’re not legally allowed to grow the most abundant crop on the planet. The hemp plant replaces nearly everything petroleum currently does; the only problem I see is that it is an easily growable plant cannot be monopolized, whereas oil can, hence the current problem we find ourselves in.

    Feel free to help me get the aforementioned greenhouses/greenhomes into mass production; perhaps then people will have a better ability to grow food in a meaningful and local way. Shoot perhaps an agrarian society is what the answer is, as to what people will do with their time when the robots have the other jobs. Let’s call it techknoagrarianisim, or perhaps techknograrian. food for thought.

  52. Alice Ellis says:

    I love the US and Canadian solidarity of realizing just how fuck-up are countries actually are.

  53. Alice Ellis says:

    Also, It's kinda sad and sick, that I at least get some level of comfort from the world being fucked up. Like, perceiving that the world is doomed and everything is hopeless is so easy, because you can just do nothing while you and everything and everyone you love is slowly destroyed. It's like, I'm pretty sure most of us here on BreadTube are at least decent people, but we also can become a validation gang, and just become a death-spiral of constant negativity. It reminds me of ContraPoints video on Incels, were self-abuse(and no, I'm not talking about masturbating) is momentarily validating, but hurts yourself in the long run. In a world without hope, we constantly abuse ourselves and those around us until the world does eventually end, because no one ends up doing anything. Like, I'm under no illusions that the world is terrible, and we are on the brink of extinction, but what gives me hope is, we've been here before. Even when some of the worst atrocities and tragedies have happened, we as a species, still find someway to move on, and we do have a problem with never learning from our mistakes, but you have to think that eventually, most of us will just "get it", and stop the constant cycle of abusing others, abusing our planet, and abusing ourselves.

  54. Elie Elie says:

    If libertarians realized that the market can't solve everything… And if leftists realized that a revolution can't solve everything… We could use a bit of both strategies, to build a world where no one goes hungry.

  55. Pendejo says:

    I will re-join the left when they rid themselves of identitarians and social progressives.

  56. The_Catman says:

    y'know, i used to think supervillains in media that just want to destroy the world were pretty ridiculous, what could they possibly stand to gain from that? but in reality those seem to be the only supervillains that actually exist, they're just playing the long game, destroying it slowly, using money as their superpower and wearing suits instead of spandex and capes, and all they're trying to gain is more money, therefore more power.

    i still don't understand their endgame though, they get all their money and power, but what's left for them to do with it then? they're just as dead as the rest of us, even if they manage to build some bunker to hide out in when everything else falls apart, what then? they'll just die alone after everyone else is long gone, them and all their money rotting away with the rest of us when we could've done so much more instead

    Good thing you had that part two, I was ready to get the cyanide pills. Instead I'm going to keep playing my guitar and do what I can.

    Do not go gently into that good night.

  61. Oliver Luke says:

    this was a very contrapoints-esque intro

  62. andrewd084 says:

    Nice video, but god dammit.. "Even the bad guys, the nationalists, the fash-for-brains, they believe that horseshit because they looked at the system as it was and realized it wasn't doing anything for them. It was offering them nothing but more grinding poverty and less job security."

    Why does every leftist on YouTube say this shit? Poverty and alienation don't make us human garbage.

    This reminds me a bit of ContraPoints. Great video! Your videos actually made me turn from a kinda right capitalist to a left socialist! Contents great, keep it up!

  68. Aleksy The Pony says:

    It is correct that oppression often births resistance. However, very often that resistance is slaughtered or imprisoned or harvested for organs. People love to use the famous tank men clip, however few people know that during these same events that video was made thousands protesters were killed by Chinese authorities and in modern China older folks don't even speak about those things with their kids who only know that there were some random manifestations around that time. Not all resistance is successful and when it is revolution often eats it's own children like in the case of french revolution.

  69. Drew Armstrong, The Glorious Lobster Emperor says:

    Honestly, if we have to line up every single rich person and chop their heads off in order to save our planet, then give me an axe because I'm gonna kill some rich people.

    And even if it doesn't, they're the ones who caused this mess. They deserve to be punished.

  71. ronan stephens says:

    I don't know if this term exists but I'm coining it. It's existential apathy. That's why we're not doing anything. The problems just feel to numerous and to large for any of us to accomplish anything and as you say lots of them are pretty intractable. We're frozen by fear and uncertainty.

  72. OwlQueen Animations says:

    eat the rich

  73. Soy Milf says:

    Well I'm super bummed out. What a time to be a non-drinker.

  74. Canadesian says:

    Hey Thought Slime, has anyone on your discord floated the idea of organizing a general strike across Canada? I was thinking about it today, and I thought back to the general strikes in the turn of the century as well in Iceland, and a single-day, canada-wide workers strike would probably get us some major leeway. 

    Basic demands like increasing mandatory vacation time to something like 20-25 days (common across the EU), mandatory raises reflective of inflation + 1% (or something like), increased number of sick days that can also be used for caring for sick children, spouses, parents, or even pets. 

    This is baaasic stuff and we could probably catch the governments attention in a big way if we could organize workers all across canada, in every industry, to just not work for a single day.
    What do you think? I might be silly even hoping for a reply, but here I am hahaha

    talking notes on how to take over the world while saving it Hmmm….. I prefer the first 11 minutes. I relate to the first 11 minutes. Knowing there's nothing you can do and accepting it is the first step to making your life less miserable. I came to terms with the fact that I'm f*cked and yet ironically when I stopped caring about everyone else's problems my life started to turn around a little. You can't save the world without saving yourself first. Only those who have control of their lives can afford to worry about others. "Mind your own business". It's not a family friendly lesson, but it is healthy.

  85. Wyatt Wren says:

    Kinda late to the party, but the thing you said about saving ourselves reminded me of a poem I heard in a TEDx Talk. I don't know if it has a name, but it's by Guante if anyone cares.

    There are no stories told in a vacuum,
    There is no prophecy lighting our way,
    There is just a lot of darkness to be afraid of,
    So it's a good thing we are not afraid.

    There is no Superman in that phone booth,
    There is no rewarding our faith,
    There is no one who can save us,
    So it's a good thing we don't need to be saved.

    There are no star ships in low-Earth orbits,
    No aliens to save us from ourselves,
    There is voice willing to speak for us,
    So it's a good thing we know how to yell.

    There is no chosen one, no destiny, no fate,
    There is no such thing as magic,
    There is no light at the end of this tunnel,
    So it's a good thing we brought matches.


    It's something that resonated with me when I first heard it, and I'm glad to be reminded of it as I'm slowly being radicalized towards anarcho-socialism

    WTF IS THIS REAL! Specifically the tangent about sterilising native American women. Like WHY

  90. FaeQueenCory says:

    Don't be rude the Nara deer!
    Trying to paint them as blindly obedient… They're better than most US citizens.
    Also: technically that man was being deferential to the deer, it's a god afterall. (Basically.)

  91. FaeQueenCory says:

    Oh, and it goes without saying….
    Or it should, but kenraken gonna kenraken.
    But if you break bread with NaZIs, you are NOT an ally to anyone but the NaZIs.
    (Not to mention that Yeshua said the same damn thing, so kenraken "Christians" are doubly hypocritical.)
