We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice. 
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."

State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.
Full video of Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s speech is available for download here (.wmv format).

Quote
"Sons of Anarchy: Born from its womb and raised in its arms, their instincts recognize no other element. They call for it without cease, they don’t smile but at it. Order, order, the wish and need of all sensible beings, is for them a torment. They shudder to behold it; they roar with joy when the storm approaches."

— Speech by prosecutor René Viellart during the trial against the conspiracy of Equals.

Be careful what (food) you wish for

Continues à m’envoyer ce que tu estimeras le mieux; tu sçais que je ne suis pas difficile pour le mangé; je mange parce qu’il le faut.

Fouquier-Tinville in a letter to his wife.

Je regrette de la faire entendre, mais tu me l’as fait dire; j’ay mangé autant que j’ay pu de l’artichaux que tu m’as envoyé.

Fouquier-Tinville two letters later.

the only difference between

"god does not want us to be equal. inequality is human nature and feudal lords deserve to rule and exploit serfs"

and

"evolution does not want us to be equal. inequality is human nature and capitalists deserve to rule and exploit the proletariat"

is the mode of production these ideas apply to
