“Democratic confederalism is understood as a #nation-state democratic nation organization. It provides a framework, within which inter alia minorities, religious communities, cultural groups, gender-specific groups and other societal groups can organize autonomously. This model may also be seen as a way of organizing a democratic nation and #culture. The democratization process in Kurdistan is not limited to matters of form but, rather, propose a broad societal project aiming at economic, social and political sovereignty in all parts of society. It advances the building of necessary institutions and creates the instruments for democratic #self-government and control. It is a continuous and long-term process. Elections are not the only means in this context. Rather, this is a dyna... show more

Nothing is more embarrassing in the ordinary intercourse of life than this irritable patriotism of the Americans. A stranger may be well inclined to praise many of the institutions of their country, but he begs permission to blame some of the peculiarities which he observes — a permission which is however inexorably refused.

A degree...is a first step down a ruinous highway. You don't want to waste it so you go on to graduate work and doctoral research. You end up a thorough-going ignoramus on everything in the world except for one subdivisional sliver of nothing.

How many Earths your lifestyle require?


http://mijnverborgenimpact.nl is the webpage from the #tedtalk of this post of @anonymiss that helps to estimate how many Earths our lifestyle requires (assuming everyone would live like that).

#### #Save the #Earth, it’s the only #planet with #chocolate.


The webpage is in #Dutch. So probably you will also need a translator (https://www.deepl.com/translator) to fill it in and be prepared to be shocked by the result.

"Above all, I believe that there should never be any violence." In 1978, Astrid Lindgren received the German Book Trade Peace Prize for her literary contributions. In acceptance, she told the following story.
“When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking – the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with. The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, 'Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.' All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from th... show more

Some people just want things they can't have...


and end up with nothing in the end

The type of people who pretend, lie to you and hide things to make you like them...
The type of people who start fights in relationships whenever things calm down and they start feeling bored...
Beware such people, for they leave deep scars in anyone who actually takes things seriously.

There is the slight chance that they might change, but realistically you only have two options; you either need to leave and find someone better or reduce the love, tone down the passion and stop trying as hard... and then leave and find someone else.
Otherwise they will break you and leave your toxic, tired, tearstained corpse on the road as they move on to thier next victim...

@Matteo Zenatti : tra le varie cose che non si possono fare qui... o sì?... come aggiungere delle tag quando si condivide un post altrui? Su G+ si può, toh! (p.es. qui l'autore originale del post ha taggato solo "quote" e "philosophy", ma io avrei aggiunto "Schopenhauer". Ho anche visto che aggiungere le tag nei commenti NON serve come escamotage).

People seem good while they are oppressed, but they only wish to become oppressors in their turn: life is nothing but a competition to be the criminal rather than the victim.

A @Dusk quote


I never ask anyone to accept me.
I am what I am.
If anyone doesn’t like that they can use the ignore button.

It’s really that simple.
Trying to force someone else to change to accommodate your hypersensitivity is itself a form of bullying.
