stream of conciousness

"All the jpegs, mpegs, YouTube rips, Wikipedia quotes, and bits from blogs etc that keep gathering together over time until in the end you realize it’s a theme, or a pattern and you’ve been almost unconsciously saving this stuff, because its you. You’ve been assembling yourself out of all this waste – the spoils that are out there on the net.”

A Japanese-American grocer hung this sign outside his store after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He was later forcibly interned. March 1942. Photograph by Dorothea Lange.

I think a lot of people forget that we live in a country that can and will strip its citizens of their rights based on the color of their skin.

We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness. We are monkeys with money and guns.

Australia had a government shutdown once. In the end, the queen fired everyone in Parliament.

In 1975, the Australian government shut down because the legislature had failed to fund it, deadlocked by a budgetary squabble. It looked a lot like the U.S. shutdown of today, or the 17 previous U.S. shutdowns.

Australia’s 1975 shutdown ended pretty differently, though, than they do here in America. Queen Elizabeth II’s official representative in Australia, Governor General Sir John Kerr, simply dismissed the prime minister. He appointed a replacement, who immediately passed the spending bill to fund the government. Three hours later, Kerr dismissed the rest of Parliament. Then Australia held elections to restart from scratch. And they haven’t had another shutdown since.
