80s, Crazy, and Fucking: fatima @fatimafiroz1 Follow Maybe if the US didn't bomb the country for the last 15 years there'd be more athletes Laura laura @jaureguihug how countries like afghanistan were walking in front of us with like 5 athletes and we came out with 400 lily-peet: urulokid: nevaehtyler: blackfemalescientist: sniffyjenkins: mideast-nrthafrica-cntrlasia: explainguncontrolandsafespaces: It’s like millennials do not understand that middle east has been at war for 1000′s of years. That we intervened on behalf of Kuwait. That without “bombing” people that want to kill and oppress others, millions will be murdered and tortured. “at war for 1000′s of years” you clearly know nothing about Afghanistan nor the middle east here’s Afghanistan in the 1950′s, 60′s, 70′s if you really want to know what caused all the instability growth of extremist groups I suggest you take a look at the US foreign policy towards Afghanistan during the 80′s It’s interesting to note that when the communist government came to power in Afghanistan in the late 70′s, one of the first things they did was declare equality of the sexes, made education for girls mandatory, banned child marriages. The conservative tribal leaders who the US armed funded ( who later became the Taliban) declared this to be a “war on Islam” fought against the central government. The US had no problem back then with encouraging the growth of Islamic conservatism to counter socialism/communism. You created your biggest enemy you have no one to blame but yourselves. BLESS THIS POST its crazy to me how the US talks about war in the middle east as if its this ancient problem inherent to the area instead of a recent problem created by western countries to further their own interests. ☕️☕️☕️ the CIA took out the democratically elected leader of Iran in the 1970s over oil and that set off an entire chain of events leading to ISIS, here’s more about multiple other countries we’ve fucked over  The United States: Fucking monsters.

College, Food, and Fucking: Ronald Reagan stuck it to millennials: A college debt history lesson no one tells Dramatic, awful changes occurred on my generation's watch and it amounts to a fiendishly successful conspiracy PETER LUNENFELD wes-stoodis: lokicolouredglasses: imathers: abraxuswithaxes: smallrevolutionary: trungles: shorterexcerpts: styro: salon: Ronald Reagan pretty much ruined everything for millennials. fuckin’ ronnie I try and bring up how he ruined free in state tuition in the name of hippie bashing when he was California’s governor often, but don’t exactly have the biggest platform. “Worst of all, these students’ sense of the future is constrained by planning for and then paying down their student loans, often for decades. Economists are waking up to the fact that when young Americans enter the workforce burdened with over a trillion dollars in cumulative debt, they become risk averse, unwilling to move, less able to make major purchases, and slower to become homeowners. Not coincidentally, they don’t feel safe enough to register any major protests against the society that’s done this to them.” Damn. i am reblogging again because….. fuck ronald reagan forever and ever and ever and ever. Economists should be adept in their fields, how are they only now realizing that paying off our student debt is a fucking priority over anything else other than food? Weird, it’s almost like there’s something missing from the study of economics. Who would have possibly thought that a young generation owing trillions of dollars could have a negative effect on the economy?

Economists should be adept in their fields, how are they only now realizing that paying off our student debt is a fucking priority over anything else other than food? as someone with a degree in economics but who is a leftist  and also someone interested in science and  not unsubstantiated theoretical mumbo jumbo, and has had to fight and debate economists/economic students for four years- economics is in a state of crisis. Whether it realizes it or not the field is in a crisis. Economics departments espouse either free-market ideology or free-market ideology with a few government tweaks to rectify certain inefficiencies. It rarely as a field questions the system it is in and economics is ridden with scientifically debunked assumptions. We are not perfectly rational nor will we ever be yet economists create deductive models with this fatal assumption. This is why is almost always fails at mathematically formalizing human behaviour, because science tells us that humans are not actually as rational as economists claim they are. Moreover it’s only been relatively recently that economists (mostly behavioral economists) have actually listened to science and considered the facts of cognitive biases when creating models of human behavior and choice. Another problem is that economists are philosophically naive. They rarely challenge their assumptions and they are prone to theory induce blindness. They focus too much on personal choice while ignoring or underplaying other relevant factors. Economists are also pressured to support capitalism since they still jerk off Adam Smith as if he was some god. It’s pretty crazy lol
