But isn't eating dead animals healthier than smoking? ;–)

Same here. And I love the term “write-only internet”, as it helps remind me where the bulk of the joy lies.
We are the brutality. Systems merely reflect it. Don't blame the cart for where the horse winds up taking it.

I've been a happy “Republic Wireless” customer for many years. I do their cheapest plan, and pay it by the year, which I believe winds up meaning getting 12 months for paying for 10 months. Heart.
Are we ever going to be done with the blatant racism of making a person's skin color so important that talking about them is impossible without referring to it – not to mention essentially emphasizing it when it's the only attribute mentioned?

Americans won't do that unless/until they become less selfish, which means focusing on purely concepual non-entities like “the republic” or “democracy” is merely distraction/escape from the inward work that really matters.
