“We don’t need the wealthy, just their wealth”. We don't need farmers, just the food they grow.

principles of non-hierarchical organisation This almost seems like a contradiction in terms. Some people are going to end up in charge no matter how "non-hierarchical" they claim to be. We’ll also have a kids workshop Do you think non-hierarchical Barbie will be involved? Remember to bring your instrument if you want to play during the acoustic open mic. Sounds like a show for the ages.

On being put on a diet by her parents: having my food consumption policed meant i developed creative and adaptive ways to continue being able to eat the foods my body wanted to be able to eat OK, being forced to go on a diet by her parents probably did suck and was foredoomed to failure, but I find the phrasing interesting here: "to eat the foods my body wanted to be able to eat". She was just following her body's orders, folks.

Whether, in a matriarchal society without examples of male aggression, those boys would grow up to be the kind of man who grabs a peaceful protester by the back of her neck remains one of the great unknowns. Because boys growing up in homes without fathers always turn out to be so peaceful.

Wow, so your parents are morally incompetent so you have to supervise their voting. I love how this, which I've always heard is illegal in the USA, is only the first step and I doubt their could ever be a last step.

So, not being a failure makes you right wing (and, therefore, a sinner) and pride in you accomplishments is a bad thing. But, if you become a perfect failure, have you not succeeded in failing?

Am I missing something? Some of the astronauts flew more than one mission. Thirty-two astronauts were assigned to fly in the Apollo manned lunar landing program. Twenty-four of them left Earth's orbit and flew around the Moon on nine missions. Jim Lovell, John Young, and Eugene Cernan flew more than on mission, so Apollo 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17 = 9 missions that got to the moon, so 9*3 - 3 = 24 people who were on missions that got to the moon. Twelve people landed on the moon, but a total of 24 flew around the moon.

[F]ocus on shaping the world you want, Mariella Frostrup tells a woman whose biological clock is ticking Because if the problem is that your biological clock is counting down and is now approaching zero, the solution is to try to remake the world to accommodate your choices before time runs out.

Like 'white supremacy' and 'patriarchy', it's whatever they want it to be (and can change at any time). And how Venezuela was a demonstration of how socialism made peoples lives better, until it had never been socialist and only a cretin would suggest it had been. Its a magical world where facts are mutable according to immediate need.

[T]he protesters are “read-only,” ... They have been led to believe that exposure to information is in and of itself dangerous. There also seems to be an authoritarian streak at work. How dare you want the facts to make up your own mind when your betters have already decided the issue?

[T]he way to “abolish systems of domination and hierarchy” is to exult in mob violence...a pretext for thuggery, as the students disavow any particulars to that effect. Perhaps answers will spontaneously emerge, This lack of any coherent ideology or any road map to where they want to go or any rational idea of what the destination might look like reminds me of the 1975 book The Monkey Wrench Gang. The saboteurs in the book have no ideology or plan other than lets wreck some stuff, which seemed odd at the time but now appears to be mainstream. With no plan for the future, Antifa can only be tools to be used and discarded.

It's like a toddler discovering a bad word and enjoying the shock on adult faces. Pretty much, and then they complain that President Trump is crude and lacks gravitas.

But are you woke enough to recognize that the 'homonormative whiteness' of LGBTQ Centers? I guess the LGBTQ centers are too gay. (And too white, of course, but that sort of goes without saying.)

At least this story has an upside, however minor: The protesters couldn't get any bystanders to join them (for now). Of course, we are talking about protesters so woke that they call the College Republicans fascist. If "Dialog is violence" are elections genocide? Oh wait, hats cause genocide, so elections must be extinction level events.

[T]he students are now insisting that the new buildings, ... should be “visibly distinct from the rest of campus.” They really couldn't be screaming "Look at me! Look at me!" any louder. I predict a pair of architectural monstrosities that, a few years latter, will be denounced as separating black and brown bodies from a predominantly white campus.

This is "white privilege", because whiteness isn't just for Caucasians anymore. Once you're woke enough to see "whiteness" as a problem that needs to be corrected, you'll see whiteness everywhere and in everyone.

Dunham is now babbling “I live for my truth,” in response to being described, yet again, as a fabulist. Dunham imagines herself the hero of her story; someone should explain the term "unreliable narrator" to her.
