Kurt Vonnegut's advice to the young on kindness, computers, community, and the power of great teachers

“I am so smart I know what is wrong with the world. 
 Everybody asks during and after our wars, and the continuing terrorist attacks all over the globe, “What’s gone wrong?” What has gone wrong is that too many people, including high school kids and heads of state, are obeying the Code of Hammurabi, a King of Babylonia who lived nearly four thousand years ago. And you can find his code echoed in the Old Testament, too. Are you ready for this?
 “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”
 A categorical imperative for all who live in obedience to the Code of Hammurabi, which includes heroes of every cowboy show and gangster show you ever saw, is this: Every injury, real or imagined, shall be avenged. Somebody’s going to be really sorry.” View Larger

How dare you.

You might not approve of some of the military decisions made by anybody, but that does not mean we should not support the people who sacrifice their lives for us on a daily basis.

I will always support the troops.

congratulations you are very wrong! the united states military (the navy especially) is the lynchpin for american/western european imperialism throughout the world and as such it the troops do not “sacrifice” for you or me but rather kill to further western domination and extraction of raw materials and because of this it is encouraged to poke fun at them via snapchats

FUCK THE TROOPS FOREVER
