Today my Econ professor gave us an assignment and it was reading a piece from the New Yorker about end of life decisions (called “Letting Go”) - whether to extend your life as much as possible, whether to go on hospice, stuff like that. And then he had us put if in economic terms —

Which struck me as callousness to the point of cruelty. Do you think we cared who the producers of a good were and what the externalities were when it was my father? Do you think that fucking mattered? How dare you try to make someone’s death a purely economic decision - how dare you try to separate people’s options into two markets? These are real fucking people we’re talking about. That’s my grandmother, my father, we’re talking about. How dare you reduce them to the most convenient economic terms?

Took this love and I took it down.
Climbed a mountain and I turned around.
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills,
till the landslide brought me down.

"oh my god, you’re seriously going to pay college kids $15 an hour to flip burgers? get a real job!"

scenicroutes:

a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?

okay, well what about the national democratic party?

what about interning at the united nations?

wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

It’s so weird that pretending whatever’s wrong with my foot isn’t happening & continuing to limp on it isn’t making the problem go away

not moving out of the way for males when you’re walking somewhere is so great, they act so surprised and offended that you didn’t acknowledge their space
