Family, Friends, and Head: anarchy404x 1d You must understand the weird logic of the left. To them life is priceless and should always be prioritised over property. They would literally let the statue of Liberty burn to save one person. Through inaction let one person starve? You monster, you literally murdered them. Reply Vote tsunderepup: randomslasher: pastel-selkie: lesbianshepard: stupid leftists and their belief in *checks notes* the intrinsic value of human life Reblog if you would burn down the statue of liberty to save a life Here’s the thing, though. If you asked a conservative “Would you let the statue of liberty burn to save one life?” they’d probably scoff and say no, it’s a national landmark, a treasure, a piece of too much historical importance to let it be destroyed for the sake of one measly life.  But if you asked, “Would you let the statue of liberty burn in order to save your child? your spouse? someone you loved a great deal?” the tune abruptly changes. At the very least, there’s a hesitation. Even if they deny it, I’m willing to bet that gun to their head, the answer would be “yes.”   The basic problem here is that people have a hard time seeing outside their own sphere of influence, and empathizing beyond the few people who are right in front of them. You’ve got your immediate family, whom you love; your friends, your acquaintances, maybe to a certain degree the people who share a status with you (your religion, your race, etc.)–but beyond that? People aren’t real. They’re theoretical.  But a national monument? That’s real. It stands for something. The value of a non-realized anonymous life that exists completely outside your sphere of influence is clearly worth less than something that represents freedom and prosperity to a whole nation, right? People who think like this lack the compassion to realize that everyone is in someone’s immediate sphere of influence–that everyone is someone’s lover, or brother, or parent. Everyone means the world to someone. And it’s the absolute height of selfishness to assume that their lives don’t have value just because they don’t mean the world to you.  P.S. I would let the statue of liberty burn to save a pigeon.

Children, Dad, and Facts: dare-i-say-asexual Can we please be the generation that stops putting up with the family child molester? The grown uncle who dates teenage girls, the husband who makes uncomfortable comments about young women's clothing, or the cousin who raises red flags with their behavior towards children but no one wants to talk about all need to go Children, especially young women, are expected to "keep the family together" by not making a fuss over incredibly traumatic behavior Children don't deserve to suffer trauma for adults' feelings of togetherness. They're more worthy of protection than predators. A healthy family is not built on the backs of abuse survivors expected to live their lives in silence without justice, support, or protection baamilk * to-Price ladyfatmouse We are that's why a lot of the generations before us don't like us clarknokent Facts, as call them out on their shit soon as we find out. Or let it be known that we not going to stuff they're gonna be at yourunclesatan one other thing don't limit your vigilance to men. female abusers almost never get caught, reported, or even spoken of. i never got help because everybody assumed that a mother was incapable of sexually abusing her own kids. nobody was looking out for me or my brothers and if they had been, they would have automatically suspected my dad who never lifted a finger to harm us. the nurturing gentle woman stereotype/gender role held in place by sexism allows abusers to get away with everything - don't buy into it and don't assume that women can't be abusers too root out every abuser in your family, even if they 're women.

Avoid Autopilot Brain at all costs. 5. Vague is bad. Vague is a waste of your time 6. Write it down. 7 Suck it up, buckle down, get it done. Plan of Attack Phase I: Class 8. Show up. Everything will make a lot more sense that way, and you will save yourself a lot of time in the long run. 9. Take notes by hand. I don't know the science behind it, but doing anything by hand is a way of carving it into your memory. Also, if you get bored you will doodle, which is still a thousand times better than ending up on stumbleupon or something. Phase II: Study Time 10. Get out of the library. The sheer fact of being in a library doesn't fill you with knowledge. Eight hours of Facebooking in the library is still eight hours of Facebooking. Also, people who bring food and blankets to the library and just stay there during finals week start to smell weird. Go home and bathe. You can quiz yourself while you wash your hair 11.

You zone out, look down, and suddenly you have five pages of neon green that you don't remember reading Write notes in the margins instead. 15. Do all your own work. You get nothing out of copying a problem set. It's also shady. 16. Read as much as you can. No way around it. Stop trying to cheat with Sparknotes. 17. Be a smart reader, not a robot (lol) Ask yourself: What is the author trying to prove? What is the logical progression of the argument? You can reading the introduction and conclusion of every chapter. Then, pick any two examples/anecdotes and commit them to memory (write them down). They will help you reconstruct the author's argument later on. 18.

This forces you to articulate your understanding. Remember, vague is bad. 25. Go for the big picture. Try to figure out where a specific concept fits into the course as a whole.
