"Something inside is hurting you – that’s why you need cigarettes or whiskey, or music turned so fucking loud you can’t think."
My sadness and frustrations with myself, other people, and the rest of the world.
You know what I’m sick of? People excusing Justin Bieber’s behavior because he’s a nineteen-year-old boy. Last time I checked, it was a bunch of nineteen-year-old boys who stormed Normandy and freed France from Nazi occupation.
jesus christ that fucking puts it into perspective
A dozen houses in the Mangueira slums of Rio de Janeiro have been demolished, and residents have been removed at gun point by the government of Brazil in order to build a parking lot for the upcoming World Cup.
People who were living in these homes were targeted by militarized riot cops, sent in by the government to push them into the streets. They were not even allowed to gather their personal belongings.
Impoverished residents were forcefully evicted in large numbers by the government: the riot cops even threatened to kill children in their mothers’ arms.
This video shows even more brutality: cops teargassing women for simply passing by; riot cops repeatedly attacking locals, throwing teargas grenades into their homes or aiming straight at them, and terrorizing and bullying defenseless people on the streets.
Faced with another episode of brutal oppression in the name of the World Cup and FIFA (an organisation which has kept silent about crimes, and racist/social abuses committed by the government of Brazil), activists from Rio de Janeiro organised to help people in the slums resist the governments violent gentrification attack.
"You know the scariest drug I ever did?"
"Sobriety. I tried that shit, and suddenly I realized that my girlfriend was insane and all my friends were assholes."
Huh. It’s like we’ve been conditioned to consume things produced by big companies in order to remove us from making actual meaningful connections with the world around us.
