"The sun never sets on the British Empire because God doesn’t trust the British in the dark."
My extremely angry history teacher, quoting his extremely angry grandfather.

"No excuse for violence against police … No excuse for police to use excessive force." Note the disparity in language and the employment of euphemism. The tacit language is, ‘black protesters employ violence’ versus ‘white police-officers use excessive force’; that’s how the debate is framed through language.
in psycholinguistics we v specifically studied how using terminology such as “clean surgical strikes” (appropriating medical phrases to sound akin a healer) are better suited when defining your own army’s actions v/s “they bombed us” when describing insurgent actions. ergo, you will read in news how israelis are being “killed” where as palestinians are “dead”.
Albert Camus - (1913-1960) Oh Albie, you heartbreaker you! </3 </3
French existentialist philosophers Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sarte are hailed as having two of the greatest minds in history. We could debate all day who was more influential or whose works were better, but Camus was hands down the hottest. Their minds might be equally great but look at that body!
This tall drink of Mediterranean sun tea brought us The Stranger, The Plague, The Myth of Sisyphus, and many more, examining the absurd and the human condition. Though his truths may be dark, his hot bod and brilliant mind fill my heart with sunshine.

Why is everyone so angry?
There seems to be an obvious contradiction in the media and in the US government and everyone can now see it.
The US government gives billions in aid to Israel, I guess 8.6 million a day. Israel is a small country located far far from the borders of America and produces nothing that we need. Have you ever owned anything that said, “Made in Israel?” Israel is obviously bent on the absolute eradication of Gaza and Palestine, which is not chill.
There might be a reason to be friendly to Israel, but to give them 8.5 million a day seems just odd.
The US Government is giving so much to a counrty that has almost zero to do with America while black men seem to be shot and put into prisons at an irrational absurd rate, 11,000 people die of gun shots a year in America, which is more than most warzones right now, and no one seems to care.
I think everyone is coming to the common sense conclusion that maybe we should be spending 8.5 a day million on helping poor people in America instead of helping people on the other side of the planet eradicate other poor people."
