There is a difference between a diet and being healthy.

A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, [it is] an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women's history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one. - Naomi Wolf #quotes #feminism #body #positivity

Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings Nelson Mandela quotes
Poverty is not an accident. - Nelson Mandela #inspirational #quotes #Nelsonmandela #mandela
Nelson Mandela ("Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid...") I like this quote mainly because I think people downplay education and are too content underachieving. And then there's capitalism. Those two together help fill prison cells.
"Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings." Nelson Mandela . . . thank you for your wisdom.

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
Alan Turing (1912 -1954) - Father of computer science, mathematician, logician, wartime codebreaker, victim of prejudice.
A shout out to a true hero. Humanity was changed forever by Turing, and inhumanity took him from us. Treat all people with love.
Turing - a true geek hero how fell to ignorant devastating tragedy
In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. He committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
One of the U.K’s most despicable act upon it’s own in the 20th Century was the witch hunt conducted against homosexuals. Most noted among this abuse of human rights was the state’s systematic destruction of the man who led other members of Britain’s intelligence services to brake the encoded messages of The Third Reich. Turing saved the nation, but the nation slowly tortured him to death by duress of process of law because he was a gay man working in Her Majesty’s Service.

Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel knows first hand that horrible things can occur unless good people stand up for what is right. I read his book Night in school it is so inspiring, heartbreaking, and shows you how evil man kind can be
Wise words from a Holocaust survivor: "I swore never to be silent whenever human beings (or animals) endure suffering and humiliation. We must always takes sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
so many I thought loved me, stay silent...

Jose Antonio Vargas has an amazing piece in the newest Time Magazine 'Not Legal Not Leaving,' about the millions of undocumented immigrants in America. Including himself.
Time magazine cover: We are Americans *Just not legally (Show me your birth certificate, or your neutralization papers then you will be an American!) no green card, no false documents and other illegal crap will make you an American!! Same for Obama, to me he is just another illegal alien!!

If all the soldiers... | Totally agree with this! Not to mention if all of the money spent for weapons and such used in wars would be used for other more important causes like food, shelter and education of the people in need, every person in the world would live happily and peacefully. Then we could all focus on nothing but help ourselves improve and make better things.
[it's not happening & hasn't happened because the people in power don't want it. time to wake up & save humanity & the planet. we are almost out of time before our biosphere collapses into a hot mess.] | "If all the soldiers, in all the armies, in all the world, put down their weapons, & picked up tools, & started building sustainable/zero carbon housing, for all the people of the world, our problems would be over & real life for all people would begin." -Michael Reynolds #paradigmshift
