I love how people who always flaunt their degree make such an active effort to remind people how much money they are going to make with their ~real degree~ (i.e. STEM) as opposed to those fake and definitely not real degrees in ~liberal arts and humanities~. Like how much must you hate what you are doing when you gotta always be on like that. We get it, you need a constant remind that your sole value come from your monetary worth. Like shut up and go back to your fantasy football league.
Yeah it’s such a ridiculous thing like MY HYPOTHETICAL MONEY can beat up YOUR HYPOTHETICAL MONEY
“When Nickelodeon, in 2009, told us they wanted us to come back and do another series where we could do whatever we wanted, the first thought we had was: Let’s do a story about the next Avatar. That was the first thought. The second thought was: Let’s make it a girl. And we didn’t just stop there, we wanted everything about Korra, pretty much everything, to be different than Aang, to be opposites. Aang was this peaceful monk, a little trickster who wanted to kinda hide from the problems and not shoulder responsibility. He had to learn to become the hero, and we wanted Korra to be the fighter, to be really a go-getter, she wanted the responsibility, she reveled in it, in her title. But she had to learn to let go of her ego and become a more balanced spiritual being. And so in a lot of ways they had opposite arcs. A lot of things mirror each other in their development, but yeah they were kind of on opposite paths. It was deliberate; it kinda worked out?”—Bryan Konietzko, answering the question if Korra and Aang represent opposites, x (via korrastyle)
Amon: I believe I have your attention, benders of Republic City. So once again, the Wolfbats are your pro-bending champions. It seems fitting that you celebrate three bullies who cheated their way to victory because every day, you threaten and abuse your fellow non-bending citizens just like the Wolfbats did to their opponents tonight.

[H]ere’s the thing…The moral power of Marx’s work doesn’t just derive from its systematic demystification of capitalism; it also flows from his insistence that capitalism cannot generate the conditions for human flourishing. He never equated material well-being with happiness, but he knew that there can be no happiness WITHOUT material well-being.
The crime of capitalism is that it forces the vast majority of the population to remain preoccupied with basic concerns of nutrition, housing, health, and skill acquisition. It leaves little time for fostering community and creativity that humans crave.
And the injustice of capitalism is that it does so in an era of plenty. There are enough resources to ensure basic material satisfaction for all, but capital mandates that those resources do not benefit the great majority. Further, those same resources have been generated by the hard work of the population that is denied its benefits.
