"Let every dirty, lousy tramp arm himself with a revolver or a knife, and lay in wait on the steps of the palaces of the rich and stab or shoot the owners as they come out. Let us kill them without mercy, and let it be a war of extermination."

"Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals."

"I ain't draft dodging. I ain't burning no flag. I ain't running to Canada. I'm staying right here.

You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I've been in jail for 400 years. I could be there for 4 or 5 more, but I ain't going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people. If I want to die, I'll die right here, right now, fighting you, if I want to die.

You my enemy, not no Chinese, no vietcong, no Japanese. You my opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice."

"The sex industry should be decriminalized. (...) Its criminalization will help to draw more and more women into the prison industrial complex. There is a racist dimension to this process, since a disproportionate number of these women will be women of color."

"Disabled people don't exist to inspire non-disabled people or remind them life could always be worse. We are not props or feel-good stories or self satisfying acts of charity. We are people living our lives just like anybody else."

~Karin Hitselberger, writer and activist

kinda ironic to post an image of a quote instead of text, thus being inaccessible to anyone who uses a screenreader, when the quote is specifically about disability.

in terms of tabletop games, most of my experience comes from d&d 3/3.5. it was basically all i cared about as a child. i've also got a fondness for the d20 system in general, as well as Pathfinder and GURPS. lately i've been most interested in FATE and PbtA games though, due to the ease of preparation for the GM and the relative ease of pickup for new players.

if we wanna talk video games, i don't actually play much, but fallout 4, skyrim, fable 2, and dragon warrior 3 are all standbys for me. i'm also a huge fan of /f/roguelike games.

that seems like a rather defeatist attitude. i know for a fact it is possible to bring some people around, even in a dyed-in-the-wool neoliberal hellscape like the US.

like, if converting folks ain't your thing, fine, you do you, but it's not impossible, and trying seems at least a better use of ones efforts than just sitting on one's ass twiddling your thumbs and waiting to die because you think making any kind of change is impossible.
