Revolutionaries do not make revolutions. The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and then they can pick it up.
These are the fifties, you know. The disgusting, posturing fifties.
The tallest Trees are most in the Power of the Winds, and Ambitious Men of the Blasts of Fortune.
Culture relates to objects and is a phenomenon of the world; entertainment relates to people and is a phenomenon of life.
Under conditions of tyranny it is far easier to act than to think.
There is a huge reservoir of support for abortion rights from ordinary women. I hear all the time from women who had abortions and say it made possible the good life they went on to have. Social shaming silences too many.
I think there are a very few pro-lifers who would say that a zygote in a petri dish is the equivalent of you or me; it’s just younger. If you can say that without laughing, maybe you are a true pro-lifer. But I think most people are able or willing to make distinctions that show they maybe don’t quite believe that.
I think the meaning of abortion is what the woman says it is: For a woman who wants a child but can’t have this one, it can be sad; for a woman who doesn’t want a baby, it can feel like a huge relief, like having your whole life given back to you.
There are no dangerous thoughts; thinking itself is dangerous.
We have an idea that the man should help pay for the child. But we don’t have a law that says a man has to support any woman he gets pregnant. Why is that? Because she doesn’t have the baby yet. But if we’re going to say it’s a human being, then he should be supporting her during pregnancy.
