The older I get, the more it seems like the world is divided between people who create things and those who profit from them.

Artists, craftsmen, engineers . . . slaves — these people create the world we live in, both internally and externally. And they are preyed upon and harnessed by speculators and leeches like Wall Street investors, small-minded “managers” and white-male-capitalist-supremacists for their spark of life.

Thankfully this era seems to be nearing an end, either because its unsustainability is proving to be antithetical to human life on Earth, or because we are waking up and realizing that we all need to create and share that which we create in order to be happy human beings.

Fucking knuckleheads.

Violence, if it ever were to need to occur, should only be a response to violence itself. Nothing else justifies it.

Going a step further, the socioeconomic impact of what this victim did to deserve this treatment is vastly surpassed by the damage inflicted by being arrested. In other words, this isn’t something worth arresting someone for.

The meager employment of empathy is probably the worst thing about our society.

It seems like the polar opposite of empathy may be judgement. There’s plenty of that! People love to judge. They love to think that they know something. Well, you don’t. Read up on some Socrates, for example. We each *know* very little, relatively speaking. We may hypothesize! We may guess! We may believe! But knowing is something different. And few people take the time to do what it takes to know anything.

So, when you hear yourself talking, when you actually notice, it is likely that you are spouting nonsense. Most of what people say is unnecessary and in effect counterproductive and damaging, because that time and effort and energy could have been spent reflecting on things, imagining a better future, doing something concretely productive and beneficial for others. Instead, we talk and judge and pronounce and just eat up time.

Atlas should have done squats instead, Ayn Rand!

In fact, he is about to start anytime now! πŸ™‚ So you had better prepare yo’ self.

Squatting is very important. It is a functional exercise that builds strength and integrity throughout the body. Without the ability to squat, where would we be? On the floor, that’s where!!!

So practice your squats daily and you will reap the benefits immediately. My squatting practice has made a huge difference in the quality of my daily life. In fact, this has led me to buy . . . The Squatty Potty! Yes, indeed! And it is terrific. And it is a wonderful metaphor for how horribly misguided our stupid Victorian ways were, having grotesquely mutated the image of what life should be like for human beings, living on our heavenly planet Earth.

So, enjoy your daily squatting practice and get yourself a Squatty Potty. That is a great habit to keep your mind off of this COVID-19 party we’ve been surprised (not) by.

Live long and prosper,

Ali

Here’s your Joe Biden, you fucking idiots.

I’m not voting for him and I hope you won’t either. Write in the candidate of your choice. Because, clearly, neither party is interested in nominating a candidate worthy of a vote.

Fuck all this.

Apparently things have to really hit rock bottom before enough people wake up. A lot of people have awakened! Obviously! And that’s fantastic! But the dead weight at the other end of the spectrum is still in deep sleep. Well, get ready, because the alarm’s about to go off and you can’t snooze it. πŸ™‚ Go fuck yourself. You’ve held us back for far too long. Enough is enough.
