"Governments—and the armed agencies that served them—loathed intellectuals and artists and freethinkers of every stripe, but they didn’t particularly fear them. Not anymore. They didn’t fear them because in the modern corporate state, artists, intellectuals, and freethinkers wielded no political or economic power; had no real hold on the hearts and minds of the masses. Human societies have always defined themselves through narration, but nowadays corporations are telling man’s stories for him. And the message, no matter how entertainingly couched, is invariably the same: to be special, you must conform; to be happy, you must consume."

THIS. MOTHERFREAKING THIS.

Excuse me as I causally anonymously mail this to all my relatives’ homes

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Equating all Muslims with the Taliban or Al-Quaeda is like equating all Christians with the Westboro Baptist Church or those who bomb abortion clinics.

I have a problem with how much I love this woman. Even being a victim of the dominant social thoughts of early 20th century Canada (white supremacy, female oppression), she chose to always voice her opinion, and our nation and the women that live in it must constantly thank her. 
"Evolution when blocked and suppressed becomes revolution" - Nellie McClung 
A Canadian badass.

- Radical Idea -
  Nellie McClung - One of a group of five women who in 1927 put forth a petition to change the definition of a “person”  in the British North America act,( the governing legal document of Canada, essentially our constitution), to include women. 
  The petition led to the “Persons case” which was a landmark case in two respects.
   First, it established that Canadian women were eligible to be appointed senators and more generally, that Canadian women had the same rights as Canadian men with respect to positions of political power.
   Second, it established what came to be known as the “living tree doctrine”, which is a doctrine of constitutional interpretation that says that a constitution is organic and must be read in a broad and liberal manner so as to adapt it to changing times.
