But the state of Israel was not created for the salvation of the Jews; it was created for the salvation of the Western interests. This is what is becoming clear (I must say that it was always clear to me). The Palestinians have been paying for the British colonial policy of “divide and rule” and for Europe’s guilty Christian conscience for more than thirty years.

Finally: there is absolutely—repeat: absolutely—no hope of establishing peace in what Europe so arrogantly calls the Middle East (how in the world would Europe know? having so dismally failed to find a passage to India) without dealing with the Palestinians. The collapse of the Shah of Iran not only revealed the depth of the pious Carter’s concern for “human rights,” it also revealed who supplied oil to Israel, and to whom Israel supplied arms. It happened to be, to spell it out, white South Africa.

Vaccines aren't actually necessary. If you live a natural, healthy lifestyle free of chemicals, toxic food additives, and GMOs, your body will take care of diseases itself.

Ah, right, like the way literally millions of people’s bodies “took care of themselves” back when everyone was eating 100% organic non-GMO everything and living totally “naturally.”

Death. The word you’re looking for as the reality behind your little euphemism is mass, often genocidal, pandemic, bodies-piled-in-the-streets for fucks sake look up smallpox or polio some time and see how long it takes you to start sobbing DEATH.  With a side of mutilation and life-long disability for the “lucky” ones. 

PS: If you really believe that all chemicals in food and medicine are evil and therefore a good excuse not to get yourself and your kids vaccinated, see how long you survive without Dihydrogen Monoxide.

Fuck this guy. I never knew my Aunt Sharon. My mom never knew her older sister Sharon. She died of polio before the vaccine was created. Healthy as a horse, then dies before she’s even ten. And fuck you if you think it’s because my grandparents didn’t feed her right or take care of her. They did everything they could, like millions of other parents, and she died anyhow.

India was just declared polio-free THIS WEEK. How the hell do you think that happened, unicorn farts and Whole Foods? No, the goddamn polio VACCINE.

Do us all a favor — if you choose not to vaccinate your children, keep them inside forever because they, and you, are a goddamn danger to those who can’t get vaccinated for health reasons or age.
VACCINATE EVERYONE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED.

I swear on all that is holy, I’m 100% done with anti-vaxxers. Your opinions are not based in science or reality, and therefore are not valid. They are fucking dangerous and causing outbreaks of potentially deadly diseases. If there were some way to criminally charge anti-vaxxers with reckless endangerment or manslaughter, I would support that completely.

Your hardheaded ignorance in the face of facts is KILLING PEOPLE.

Madagascar literally had an outbreak of bubonic and pneumonic plague and people are still like “WE DON’T NEED VACCINES” like shut the fuck up.

The United States has seen a FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT increase in whooping cough in the last few years BUT NO GO AHEAD AND EAT SOME FUCKING ORGANIC RASPBERRIES YOU’LL BE SUPER FINE.

YOUR BODY DOES NOT “TAKE CARE OF DISEASES ITSELF.”  Some of them can be nuked by your immune system.  SOME OF THEM CAN’T. People have been DYING OF DISEASES for as long as people have existed.  That is some fucked-up “the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down” magical-thinking BULLSHIT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

SORRY NOTHING MAKES ME SHOUTIER THAN ANTI-VAXX BULLSHIT.

  1. The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  2. The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  3. The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  4. The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  5. The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  6. The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  7. The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  8. The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
  1. Guernica: What are some strands of philosophical thought that guide your thinking on how people should make change in the contemporary world?
  2. Grace Lee Boggs: I was very lucky that as a graduate student at Bryn Mawr College, I studied Hegel’s Phenomenology. He talked about how we do not reach freedom like a shot out of a pistol, but rather that it takes a lot of labor, patience, and suffering. And I’ve seen it happening. I’ve seen how it takes time for change to take place. But then when huge changes are taking place, they are extraordinary. And it requires a kind of philosophical thinking, thinking in terms of epochs.
  3. Guernica: Do you feel like that kind of intellectual inquiry is missing from today’s education system?
  4. Grace Lee Boggs: Well, I think that education today is a form of child abuse. The natural tendency of children is to solve problems, but we try to indoctrinate them with facts, which they are supposed to feed back, and then we fail them. And that’s child abuse. And you should never raise children that way. You should cultivate and encourage their natural tendencies to create solutions to the problems around them. We have a school in Detroit that’s founded on that idea—the Boggs school. They have wonderful teachers who create solutionaries.
My mom just told me that when she lived in Palestine there were turkish delights (sweets) wrapped in plastic and thrown in the wheat fields that she used to tend. She asked her mother if she could eat them and she told her that they'll kill her. Wallahi Israelis have no hearts.

Yup when I was there I was wondering who dropped all this candy everywhere and I saw that from the helicopters they were throwing buckets of candy everywhere. Poisonous candy. Killing animals, and children.
