"The so-called “government shutdown” isn’t really a government shutdown at all. It’s a public services shutdown. Food aid to needy families will stop. Over one thousand food safety and inspection workers will not go to work. Veterans looking to apply for benefits will face serious delays. The IRS won’t answer the phone to help you prepare your taxes, and will stop processing returns. Depending on where you live, you might have a difficult time getting your passport renewed. Zoos and museums are closed effective immediately.But the government’s guns and surveillance state apparatus chug on without much of a blip at all.

[…]

The NSA, fully funded and operational, won’t have any problem continuing to map our social and associational patterns. The FBI will still map ethnic communities and spy on peace and justice activists. The CIA will go on plotting and executing its extrajudicial drone killings in places like Pakistan and Yemen. The DEA will still use NSA intercepts to sneakily forward drug prosecutions while hiding from judges and defendants the intelligence that sparks investigations. Customs, Border Protection will go on harassing Muslims and immigrants at the border, humiliating citizens and visitors alike for no good reason. ICE will continue to deport and detain immigrants, tearing families asunder. The surveillance state will go on, ‘protecting’ a shell of a civilization. We might not be able to eat, but at least someone will be watching us starve."

Government shutdown is nothing of the sort while the police and surveillance states live on (via hagereseb)

Look, I don’t mind the whole, ” ‘families’ won’t receive funding because the government shut down.” Do you know why? Because it’s propaganda. It’s meant to make one think that there is only black and white in our country. there is so much more than Democrats and Republicans. Conservative and Liberal. THERE IS MORE OUT THERE. Until people understand this, you can keep looking forward to the NSA watching you give your girlfriend or boyfriend some good pussy/dick. You can keep looking forward to the government sending spooks to arrest you for saying something they don’t like. Democrats, republicans, conservatives, liberals; it’s all a show. It’s all meant to confuse you, it’s all meant to make you feel like you are powerless. Think of the president and people in power standing on an ant hill, they have those ants convinced they won’t step on them, but if those ants EVER feel threatened, they will be stung millions of times and they will die. Then the ants will be the leaders of their own life, they won’t have media or the president telling them what to do, what to buy, what laws we should vote for, who we should take shit from, why we should follow a unjust law, why we should take any of this. We wouldn’t have that anymore if that anthill saw the truth about their life, we would have real freedom. We would have justice.

"One of the most satisfying experiences I know is just fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset … I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple in the cloud color” … I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds."
