Hairtrending: more than hair less than life

I post images, links, text and items that strike my fancy. You may or may not agree with my choices, but I hope you find that they cause you to stop and think.
That's what triggered me to post them.

Feel free to ask away. "The only stupid question is the question unasked." Although, I reserve the right to supply stupid answers, usually unintentionally.

Oh, all images are not mine, although I wish I had an eighth of the talent most of the image makers possess. Any images that you have control over and want removed, ask and I'll try to remove them. Just let me know the specific image.

In the historical view, cultural ignorance is more than the absence of knowledge. It is also the result of long term cultural and political struggle. Since the industrial revolution, the struggle has been between capital and workers. Capital won in America and spread its successful tactics worldwide. Now we watch global capitalism wreck the world and attempt to stay ahead of that wreckage clutching its profits. A subservient world kneels before it, praying that planet destroying jobs will fall their way. Will unrestrained global capitalism, with all the power and momentum on its side and motivated purely by machinelike harvesting of profits, reduce the faceless masses in its path to slavery? Does a duck shit in a pond? Meanwhile, here we are, American riders on the short bus, barreling into the Grand Canyon. With typical American gunpoint optimism, we’ve convinced ourselves we’re in an airplane. A few smarter kids in the back whisper about hijacking and turning the bus around. But the security cop riding shotgun just strokes his taser and smiles. Not that yours truly has the ass to take on the security surveillance state. Hell no. I jumped out the window when the bus shot past Mexico.

Joe Bageant: AMERICA: Y UR PEEPS B SO DUM?

It’s long but it’s so spot.  Read the whole thing.  Now.  Do it.  And when you’re don’e, stick it under someone else’s nose and make them read it.
