Any time anyone starts to take Shakespeare too seriously I have to remind them that “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” is a dick joke

Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.

i’m sorry that’s just the best sentence i’ve ever read

Canon Jesus is so much cooler than American Jesus.

Guaranteed basic income to every citizen, whether or not they are employed to ensure their survival and that they live in a dignified, humane way, preventing poverty, illness, homelessness, reducing crime, encouraging higher education and learning vocations as well as helping society become more prosperous as a whole. 

Wow. Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.
The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.
But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.

"BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?" screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. "You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!""But where will people get the incentive to work?!" Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. "You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!”
"But who will serve me?" grumbled Marty McMoneybags. "Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??”

I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!

The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)
And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!
Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.
And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.
Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.
And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.
The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?
TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.

They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. 
But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.
Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.

Why did they stop in canada?

I am a type one diabetic

This is interesting… and exactly as I thought.  I met a woman a while ago while doing stage crew at the local community theater, she was talking to some of the actors and I heard her say she was insulin resistant.  I jump in and say, “Oh, so you’re type 2.”  She says, “No, I’m insulin resistant.”  I go, “Right, type 2…”  Again, she said she was insulin resistant….  I then ask her to define type 2 diabetes to which she replies, “Inability to produce insulin.”  -_-  I said, in a snarky and rather rude way, “Oh, I didn’t realize that I was misclassified… they told me that I have type 1 and can’t produce insulin.  Oh, by the way, which hospital do you go to?”  She told me this small clinic that I can’t remember the name of…  I told her to go to a real hospital…
It’s crazy to think that there are people out there who don’t know about their own disease, but the sad truth is that there are many people who are misinformed about it; not only the people who don’t have it, but the people who do have it as well.

When it comes to the Brony fandom and everything in it, tumblr has got to be pretty hypocritical about it. All the problems they say make the fandom the worse fandom ever are near ubiquitous in all other fandoms, yet they’ve got a damnable fem-boner for beating any instance of “spaghetti” and the steretype to the forefront and going “ewwww, look at how gross this fandom is”
Idiotic fans- Everywhere, they come in all different shapes and sizes and are impossible to tell how big of a proportion of the fandom they take up. Tumblr likes to rail on Bronies far more than they do for any other fans, not even the inevitable shrieking fangirls hailing from the halls of Superwholock and Homestuck. Shit happens in each fandom and they will get called out for it. However this leads on into a later point.
R34- It wouldn’t be a rule if it wasn’t universal now wouldn’t it? It’s porn of stuff intended for kids; that’s terrible right? Then why is there porn of every other cartoon out there? Including the porn coming from active fandoms right here on tumblr? Is MLP somehow inexplicably sacrosanct from the internet? No, if it exists there will be porn of it, just tag it away to your own blogs, filter it out, don’t flip your shit like some kinda of 13 year old if you do see it, and quit pretending that the same doesn’t happen in your little fandom.
Men- Here’s the stickler, there are some plain stupid arguments that the periphery demographic somehow “stole” the original show. That’s just bollocks, firstly, there’s a near quarter of the current fandom who are straight up women, so bangs go the idea that the fandom is just full of men; Then there’s the non-binary/transgender contingent, so pop goes the idea that the fandom as a whole rejects anyone off the cis-radar. And yet, tumblr is fixated on this idea that it’s weird that grown men and boys are liking a show that’s typically built for little girls and that by watching this show we are STEALING the show from them. We aren’t, we’re contributing to the viewership numbers, surely isn’t that a good thing? A show that’s well done and has well executed morals getting recognition? And breaks the gender divide and draws in the male demographic without compromising the creators properly feminist ideals WHO MADE IT CLEAR; THIS SHOW WAS MEANT FOR EVERYONE, GENDER ROLES BE DAMNED.
But ohhhh nooooo, it’s all these eeeeeevil men watching something they’re not supposed to. Women can like whatever they want you sexist pig but not menno they need to be less valued because muh patriarchy. How dare they corrupt it even though half the staff are only men and the fandom has no say which way the show goes. Yeees, the fandom is toxic and sick unlike any otherbecause I saw this post from this popular person why do I need to see the show and fandom for myself when I can just stay here in my little dashboard because I don’t need to prove my points of the behaviour of all these men fedoras fedoras neckbeards evil reddit evil reddit MRA spaghetti they’re all the same.
Tumblr is full of hypocrites who suckle at the veritable thumbs of their own fandoms and then cry out in manufactured nausea and outrage at the possibility of something harmless but goes against their new definition of the “norm”. 
There is no difference whatsoever between the “Brony” fandom and any other fandom that has, is, or will exist out there. Be it in behaviour, intention, demographic or fan created output.
You may hate the fandom, how the hell am I to stop you, entire sites do so on an ingrained basis; 4chan, facepunch, forums from here to Korea, but tumblr is the worst of them all. Even worse then 4chan. 
At least 4chan doesn’t PRETEND TO BE RIGHTEOUS.

,



It’s disheartening that posts that shed light on deplorable behavior get lost and buried under exactly the kind of behavior that’s being dissected.
More people need to stand up and point out these discrepancies.
We can’t halt the spread of disease if no one’s willing to share the vaccine.

All this, but especially that 4Chan line. I honestly sometimes feel safer lurking 4Chan than posting here because I know 4Chan at least has an understanding that everyone is assumed to be there as an asshole and no one is better than anyone else. 

I refuse to let this die with the obscurity of only 872 notes while that same HURR DURR FAT FEDORA NECKBEARD crap breaks into the thousands.
