Don't Tread On Me

I swear- by my life and my love it- that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine- Ayn Rand.

Let me tell you what is absolutely vile, humiliating and low: war, racism, homophobia, etc.. Uttering the word fuck is nor disgraceful or despicable. Language is the most sacred tool to express disappointment, anxiety, excitement, and most importantly to mildly communicate one thought, if possible. So, if you become moderately offended when someone says the word fuck, I believe you are limited. There is a transcendental value far more significant in saying one simple word: Something you and I cannot actualize or make tangible. And this is where the concept of language becomes perilous, fuck becomes just a word. It is a paradoxical theory to claim that language is supreme but also arbitrary. We give words meaning. You give words meaning. You invent your reality. Realities become truth and truth becomes lie. My truth is: fuck is just a word. Now war, racism and homophobia, are implemented actions. They spread hate and volumes of ignorance to innocent minds. Fuck, fuck, fuck! Do you see how that works? I am communicating my frustration. Words do not wound people, actions do. Thankfully we have words for such vile, inhumane acts. If there wasn’t a definition for any of these words, as a society we would lack compassion and actualization. We must define our virtue, as well as our evil, and add ornate adjectives or interjections to give passion to our cognition. Fuck is not an offense, fuck will not launch a bomb on your city, fuck will not amputate your leg, fuck will not endanger your life. So I politely ask you, to get your head out of your ass, and realize avoiding a couple of words don’t add to your refinery as a human being. Having a kind heart, and gentle intentions demonstrate sophistication of the mind, and soul, eventually projected by the body.

REBLOG IF YOU THINK THE AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEM IS FUCKED UP

I know this will probably get only a fww notes at best, but I’m trying to prove a point to my mother. That my school is overworking me, and that she can’t expect me to be a perfect student, especially with my ADHD.

"I want a life free of meaningless conflict." Conflict should be a meaningful experience that will alter my life or viewpoint on something in some way, no matter how small. That’s meaningful. It stays with me.
You know what’s not meaningful? So much homework to where I don’t have room to breathe. That’s not meaningful. Its only consequence is furthering my indoctrination of the American school system. Homework should be completed only to the extent at which the student needs it. Fuck this life.
“I’m nursing a poison that never stung. Free and young and we can feel none of it.”
School is turning me into a robot and I am terrified.

So you think that money is the root of all evil? […] Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?

If you’re seriously a person who thinks ‘we should forget tragic events in history people should get over it’ then you do not understand the concept of history.
