"Classifying some families, especially their children, as of lesser value should be repugnant to those in this nation who profess to believe in ‘family values.’"

Little Green Strips

How can one strip of paper

The size of your hand

Painted,

Printed,

In green

With numbers

And portraits of men

Who haven’t lived for centuries

 

Contain all the world’s value,

All the world’s power?

 

This one strip of green bark

Rules countries

Saves lives

Incites war

Explores space

Drives men insane with greed

And unquenchable thirsts for power;

Don’t they know

Only little green strips

Are capable of power?

 

But how can these sheared tree skins

No larger than an infant

Conquer life

 

When it is as easy to tear

As a Kleenex?

What kind of conqueror

Falls

With a rip?

 

That’s the difference

Between a little green strip

And an infant;

 

One must spend years killing the other,

While the other can kill the one

In a second.

"It seems to me that a fit body doesn’t by its own virtue make the soul good, but instead that the opposite is true - a good soul by its own virtue makes the body as good as possible."
Socrates
"why are you so shy"
literally the dumbest question to ask a shy person ever (via n-ephthys)
