The Magic of Thinking Big

Action cures fears.
Doing what’s right keeps your self conscience satisfied and builds confidence.
Capacity is a state of mind.

There is bad silence and there is good silence. When you know the difference, you know inner tranquility.

Pronto is an avid reader of the Journal of American History. He is currently enjoying “The Urbanization of the Eastern Gray Squirrel in the United States” by Etienne Benson. He can’t believe that cats who lived in cities 200 years ago didn’t have squirrels to chase. How did they entertain themselves?

Meet Moossa, a 6 months old boy from Baghdad – and sadly, Iraq’s first victim of polio in 14 years.
“I never thought that my child could be paralyzed,” says his father, who deeply regrets not having his children vaccinated against this debilitating disease.
Since the detection of Moossa’s case, polio vaccination campaigns have begun in Iraq, Syria and Egypt to reach all children under 5. Read more in our latest blog post: http://uni.cf/1kJIAAk

Ditch the middle class.

socialismandstuff:

Ditch the middle class.

America’s obsessed with them. Journalists and economists tell us they’re disappearing and the economy is doomed without them. The 24-hour pop pulp news cycle caters to their every whim and whimsy. But We think it’s time to ditch the middle class and move on to bigger and better things.

What is the middle class anyway? “Oh, I’m upper-middle-lower-sideways class, I’m not middle class.” There’s the homeless, the poor, the working poor, the lower class, the lower-middle class, the big-one-in-the-middle, the upper-middle class, the no-one-will-admit-to-being-in-it-upper class, but where do the differences really lie?

The thing is, these divisions are illusory. They focus on the wrong thing: wealth and income. Inequalities in wealth are symptoms of the class system, they aren’t the disease that separates the classes. In the end it doesn’t matter how much money you make, it matters how you make that money. So, let us ditch the middle class–and the rest of the income based class system with them–and get to the heart of the real causes of class division in society.

It breaks down to this: If you have to sell your labor for a wage to get the things that you need to survive (food, housing, clothes, etc.) you are working class. Let it roll off your tongue: Working class. It’s that simple.

Don’t have a trust fund that you can live off of without getting a job?

You’re working class.

Don’t have the massive amounts of wealth required to create money from owning money?

You’re working class.

Do you wake up and go to a job where your boss tells you how to work and what to do with the threat of firing you if you disagree?

You’re working class.

You sell your labor, your sweat and energy, and most importantly your time, working for someone else, so you can get a wage to pay your rent, buy your food, buy gas to get back to work, pay for your insurance so you can own the car. All paid out of your own labor. You are working class.

As a member of the working class, you are united with every other member of the working class under that common bond of laboring for your existence. Your interests are working class interests. Working class interests are your interests. Stand in solidarity with us against the oppression of workers everywhere and together We will not fail.

If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.
