    If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.

    But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.

    So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above.

Every mom is working hard :)

I had an ask that seemed to think by reblogging that possum valentine I was somehow hating on possums. I wish to take a brief break from my workday to make plain my stance on the possums: I am for them. When people call them “ugly” I feel like that’s a sign those people don’t understand, like, the universe. Possums are tremendous creatures with incredible jaws and they walk by night seeking adventure and trash and the possum’s trash diet is sane and efficient and animals with sane efficient diets, they are my favorite of the animals, shout out to the vulture, my brother atop the disguised cell tower
let it be said of John Darnielle at his funeral, may that day be many years from now, that he was on the side of the noble possum forever and had even contemplated a possum tattoo and who’s to say that he won’t have one by then

    Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
