Oh, shit, you’re right… OH WAIT. What’s this…


Working poor? But I thought hard work always rendered wealth????? OMG LOOK AT THIS SHIT THOUGH.

More poor people in America have a job than not??? WHAAAAATT? But, graph, anon told me hard work yields wealth!

Well would you take a fucking look at this. Do you know what this means? Not only are all these hard workers poor (but hard work makes people rich????), but capitalism is also hella racist. Socialism and communism both give everyone the same opportunities, but why would we want that?! That would take white privilege out of the world of work. Equal opportunity for all colors? Fuck that, right? I prefer capitalism, where the class system and minimal regulation of business allows blatant discrimination in the work place.

I mean, surely the rich get rich by working hard and being honest. This is America, right?


Whoa! Excuse me, graph? Anon told me hard work yielded wealth??? This can’t be right! The actual workers of corporations bust their asses to make the profit for the corporations??? If this were the case, that would mean that CEOs *gasp* STEAL profit from workers???? WHAAAATTT?????

Hard work does not render wealth in a capitalist setting, or the term “working poor” wouldn’t exist. Look around you! :)

The stunning sight of hundreds of bright blue butterflies was almost too much for the six-month-old kitten, Lepa, as he bounced over and started trying to catch them. The comical chase was captured by student Natalia Moldovanova in Leningrad Oblast, Russia. After awhile Lepa got tired and collapsed among the butterflies, seemingly in paradise | Article.

What then should he have done? Sign or not?

Another way of formulating the question is, Is it better to shout and
thereby hasten the end, or to keep silent and gain thereby a slower
death?

Is there any answer to these questions?

And once again he thought the thought we already know: Human life
occurs only once, and the reason we cannot determine which of our
decisions is good and which bad is that in a given situation we can
only make one decision; we are not granted a second, third, or fourth life in which to compare various decisions.

History is similar to individual lives in this respect. There is only
one history of the Czechs. One day it will come to an end as surely as Tomas’s life, never to be repeated.

In 1618, the Czech estates took courage and vented their ire on the
emperor reigning in Vienna by pitching two of his high officials out
of a window in the Prague Castle. Their defiance led to the Thirty
Years War, which in turn led to the almost complete destruction of the Czech nation. Should the Czechs have shown more caution than courage?
The answer may seem simple; it is not.

Three hundred and twenty years later, after the Munich Conference of 1938, the entire world decided to sacrifice the Czechs’s country to
Hitler. Should the Czechs have tried to stand up to a power eight
times their size? In contrast to 1618, they opted for caution. Their
capitulation led to the Second World War, which in turn led to the
forfeit of their nation’s freedom for many decades or even centuries.
Should they have shown more courage than caution? What should they have done?

If Czech history could be repeated, we should of course find it
desirable to test the other possibility each time and compare the
results. Without such an experiment, all considerations of this kind
remain a game of hypotheses.

Einmal ist Keinmal. What happens but once may as well not have
happened at all. The history of the Czechs will not be repeated, nor
will the history of Europe. The history of the Czechs and of Europe is a pair of sketches from the pen of mankind’s fateful inexperience.
History is as light as individual human life, unbearably light, light
as a feather, as dust swirling into the air, as whatever will no
longer exist tomorrow.
