Several protesters cut the Israeli border fence and reportedly attempted to enter the other side, as Israeli military forces were heavily deployed alongside the borders, constantly opening fire.

Palestinians headed to the “return camps” early Monday stationed along the border, setting fire to tires near the border fence.

In Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, Israeli forces had thrown flammable material at the return camps in an attempt to prevent youths from approaching borders.

Live Updates: Israeli troops kill dozens of Palestinians protesting against US embassy move to Jerusalem

“Rarely, if ever have the Palestinians carried the sympathetic optics of the day. Especially with the Western media/television outlets. Well dressed American and Israeli officials on one side of the screen: desperation, death and fires on the other.” #USEmbassyJerusalem #Gaza

Concept: That scene in every 90s high school movie where someone shows the new kid around the cafeteria (”that table is the nerds, those are the jocks, the goths, the cheerleeders” etc) except it’s a medieval tavern and each table has a different d&d class.

Those are the arcane casters. They all sit together, but the wizards think the sorcerers are undisciplined cheaters and the sorcerers think the wizards are pretentious dicks. You don’t wanna get in the middle of that–the last person who tried got polymorphed into a toad. I guess he had a lot of debts he was looking to get out of, though, so he just rolled with it. He’s somebody’s familiar now, I think.

The bards used to sit with them, but they broke off a while ago to do their own thing. Look, I should tell you right now: you’re poetically gonna sleep with at least one of them. It’s happened to most of us, so don’t be embarrassed. If you’re lucky, you might get away with just a ballad to your beauty parodying an 80s rock hit.

The paladins are at the next table over. Religious freaks, but if you’re getting bullied they’ll have your back even if they don’t know you. You, uh…you might end up sleeping with some of them, too. Look, they’re really good listeners, okay? Whatever.

The druids. Don’t even THINK of trying to sit with them unless you’re rocking a negative carbon footprint. Or if you can turn into a bear or a slow loris or something, they love that shit.

The rogues are…they’re around here somewhere.

Getting through this econ 101 textbook is painful. The chapters are just capitalism good/gubbment bad halves and over-simplify and sanitize capitalist activities. 

Here’s a good example: they bring up the Agricultural Adjustment Act (part of the New Deal) as an example of how governments fail to make any meaningful economic change with their policies. They detail all the crops wasted and livestock wasted to keep prices down, but fail to look at WHY this was happening in the first place: because capitalism caused the Great Depression, the government had to act to provide some kind of standard of living for most Americans. The New Deal would not have to exist if capitalism was as flawless as this book wants to portray it. 

Not to mention that the government is attempting to do this WITHIN A CAPITALIST FRAMEWORK by stabilizing prices through arbitrary waste.

Doesn’t help that my Professor asks really simplistic and leading questions like, “Can you REALLY get things for FREE from the government?” or “If you work hard and get rich, is it at someone else’s expense?”   

“Not to mention that the government is attempting to do this WITHIN A CAPITALIST FRAMEWORK by stabilizing prices through arbitrary waste.”


Abundance is opposed by the rich because it’s not profitable. You need to either impose an artificial scarcity onto resources (through arbitrary waste) or you need to corral those resources under your control through enclosure and monopolization (which is also imposing a form of artificial scarcity, since the more owned by you the less owned by everyone else; and so you can charge more and rake in more profits). Econ 101 will contend that as supply goes up, price goes down — a scenario that isn’t appealing to those looking to make a profit. This should be an indictment of capitalism, but alas it’s always used as a soundbite to make the system seem more efficient and rational than it actually is.

The divide between classical economics and New Deal Keynesianism is more often than not just a disagreement over some of the spoils; by and large, they both subscribe to the same ideas about who ought to manage society and who ought to control the majority of its resources. The New Deal was an attempt to SAVE capitalism, not overthrow it.

It’s not at all a coincidence that Econ 101 reads like capitalist propaganda rather than anything rooted in reality. This started in the 1970s when business leaders decided that they had enough of their profits getting squeezed by New Deal policies, and even their right to those profits getting questioned by socialists and the like.

The Powell memorandum was written exactly to that end, to initiate a “business-friendly revolution”. This meant an ideological takeover of public policy as well as education via corporate funds.

Half a century later, we’re seeing exactly the results they wanted - the New Deal undone, the working class squeezed again, while corporate profits are soaring higher than ever.

Baltimore: Youth Against War & Racism march and rally against U.S. imperialism to mark #CantonsvilleNine anniversary, May 5, 2018.

Fifty years ago, during the Vietnam War, 9 anti-war Catholic activists broke into the local draft board and removed 378 draft files which they burned in front of the recruitment office in Catonsville, MD.

Celebrate their anti-war legacy and say NO to war and racism!

From Syria to Korea, Venezuela to Iran, and even Russia and China, the threat of another war by the United States is imminent. The US military has over 1000 foreign bases in dozens of countries throughout the world and uses racism to demonize the people an leadership of countries that oppose the interests of Wall Street. At the same time the police murder oppressed people with impunity right here at home and use the same racism to justify it.

These are intimately connected issues and we call upon young people everywhere to stand up and resist the drive to war, both at home and abroad. Tell the Pentagon and their banker masters that we won’t fight in their war! Our struggle is right here in the streets!
