Come-a listen to my story bout a man named Jed: Mexico and renewable energy

https://youtu.be/T94bE2_CfPA Last night my dad told me that the American Ambassador pulled the Mexican Secretary of State into a meeting to complain about Mexico’s corruption regarding renewable energy. 🌎: What?

I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates

https://youtu.be/KJVUqzU7B-Q I woke up this morning feeling incredibly loved by someone. I don't even know who. Just I felt confidence and stability and a toggle to someone without feeling constrained. I felt an underlying safety net that gave me the freedom to explore new territory. It's an incredibly strange feeling but not so strange given … Continue reading I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates

I know a place: altruism, the misguided New Man and how to get people to care

https://youtu.be/uY3vgBzgYn4 Are you familiar with the concept of the New Man? It has its roots in religion and philosophy and has been used by political groups from left to right. Basically it’s the idea of the evolution of humans thinking in terms beyond themselves. Hardworking and selfless. No national identity. Or just national identity.

And you do what they told ya: autism and pathological demand avoidance

If you don't know the song, it's from 1992 and it's about how there are white supremacist cops out there. The song has always been really personal and scary to me. Not because it's informing me of the obvious, … Continue reading And you do what they told ya: autism and pathological demand avoidance

And they’re all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same

In this moment where ignorance is revealing itself, even amongst earnest allies, I want to take a minute to thank the "teachers" in my life who made me question everything. Some of them were actual teachers. Some of them were filmmakers. Some of them were were writers. Philosophers. And some were friends.

What white pacifists don’t understand about their pleas for peace and their use of police violence against peaceful protesters
