“The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules, but by people following the rules. It’s people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages.”

It’s days like this that I like to remember that the Irish government are ever proud of the Spire of Dublin.

It’s literally a 400 ft metal spike sticking out of the ground. It was supposed to be done for the new millennium but they didn’t start building it until 2002.

And it’s supposed to be self-cleaning but it doesn’t work and there’s no way to clean it.

Ireland.

not to mention it’s ‘unofficial name’

friendly reminder that the only reason fictional characters “choose” anything is because real actual people write them that way

Reading insecurity. It is the subjective experience of thinking that you’re not getting as much from reading as you used to. It is setting aside an hour for that new book … and spending it instead on Facebook (scrolling dumbly through photos of people you barely remember from your high school). It is deploring your attention span and missing the flow, the trance, of entering a narrative world without bringing the real one along. It is realizing that if Virginia Woolf was correct to call heaven “one continuous unexhausted reading,” then goodbye, you have been kicked out of paradise.

[…]

So where does this leave us…? I would not turn back the clock on the Internet, obviously. I am not stupid enough to question the tremendous good it does, even if at times I stare at my computer screen and feel like a water strider posed tantalizingly atop a stream of inaccessible knowledge… And yet. I worry that, over the past few years of living much of my life online, my relationship to text—especially the spacious, get-lost-in-it kind—has changed for the worse. It’s called reading insecurity. Do you have it?

Slate's Katy Waldman considers the modern existential malady of “reading insecurity,” caused largely by our inability to cultivate a truly “bi-literate” brain. (via explore-blog)

This really isn’t surprising when you consider the fact that a lot of people prefer to be entertained than be informed. Gone are the days of the real History Channel…The Learning Channel(TLC), etc. I don’t know for sure if this is an intentional “dumbing down” of the American public, or if the majority of people in this country just prefer to be fucking ignorant…I don’t know, but the crap that is on tv today is certainly a reflection of what people want to see. And it’s mainly the shit on the right, not the left.
