"Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.
Cory Booker (via wethinkwedream)
"Literally, “anarchy” means “without an archon.” Archons were leaders of ancient Greek city-states. But being without a leader — without an archon — is not necessarily to be without law. The vast bulk of law emerges not from the commands of sovereign rulers but, rather, from the everyday interactions of countless ordinary people as they exchange, intermingle, cooperate, and come into conflict with each other. Only the most naïve social creationist equates the dictates of strongmen (or of groups of strongmen, such as assemble in legislatures) with “law.

Why can’t people accept that sometimes…
Want to fuck?
We all just want to have sex
We are sexual fucking beings.
Which fucking ancestor of ours decided that we should try to repress something that so many of us enjoy?
Something that comes so fucking naturally to us?
Can we go back in time and slap that person or…
Like, of course there’s nothing wrong with wanting to wait and shit too
Or to not be promiscuous at all
If it’s all consensual, we should be able to do whatever.
Just… the amount of sex any of us are having
Shouldn’t fucking matter
some people define forgiveness as the exhalation of something “unhealthy” or “toxic.”
there are irrevocably twisted monsters in our world.
there are people who should never be trusted.
why is acknowledging this,
internalizing this fact of life
when it saves you unnecessary pain in the future?
and if they hurt you — never, ever forget it.
that isn’t toxic.
that’s being smart.
Nobody has the right to shield any idea as so sacred it can’t be challenged.
Almost all human progress is driven by people who stood up and said ‘I disagree’ with this idea that society at the time considered to be the most precious.’
