“And you know what the irony is…?[Martin Luther King Jr.] would not be invited to the very march in his name, because he would talk about drones. He’d talk about Wall Street criminality. He would talk about working class being pushed to the margins as profits went up for corporate executives in their compensation. He would talk about the legacies of white supremacy. Do you think anybody at that march will talk about drones and the drone president? Will you think anybody at that march will talk about the connection to Wall Street? They are all on the plantation.”
Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can mobilize an entire society in violent hate against me.
ALL OF THIS!!!

“It would be a happy state of affairs if wisdom were something that could flow between us through mere contact, from the one who is full to the one who is empty, like water flowing along a strand of wool from a full cup to an empty one.”
