I'm 17 now, just about to take my A-levels. I do well, I get into the university I want, get a degree, get a job. Welcome to the rest of my life.
I was at a party recently. Kids with dyed hair and catchy tshirt slogans. What are they going to be doing in 10 years? Most of them, I think, will be sat at a desk, thinking back to those good times, wondering where everything changed. And you say 'Well they have the choice to do something different.'  More >

“Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me”

Often seen as a symbol of mere juvenile resistance, this attitude is actually a positive attribute of humanity, and can teach us how to better live and solve the issues that plague our societies. The potency of this statement comes from the less obvious idea of empowerment through resistance. The ability to resist implies YOU have the power. This is exactly as it should be. That very resistance is the spirit of mankind that refuses to stay chained to its own collective ignorance and to demand a better way. To be free from the oppression of others, is part of what has made mankind great. It is also exactly opposite of the root structure of all systems (government, religion, corporation) as we know them today.  More >
