Spending time in quarantine and self isolation means plenty of time and space to educate yourself. There’s much going on right now with the Corona virus pandemic raging around the globe and it’s hard to keep track. But you’re lucky: lots of television programs to fill your brain with and to make sure you’ll stay on top of your political game while staying at home.
On EU nationalism
Valar Morghulis. Valar Dohaeris.
On mass surveillance and Artificial Intelligence
One day, I realized all the dumb, selfish things people do… it’s not our fault. No one designed us. We’re just an accident. We’re just bad code.
On fascism in late capitalism
Praised be, bitch.
On neoliberal supremacy in late capitalism
Violent delights have violent ends.
On neighborhood support networks in working class and poor communities
I always fantasized about having enough money to stock up on toilet paper.
On neighborhood support networks in upper class communities
Don’t be defeatist. It’s very middle class.
On Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence
Heterosexuality should be illegal. [That’s not a quote from the series. That’s just the moral of this show.]
On how to defend yourself against your abusive partner
The way you are whining right now makes me believe you think I’m your mother.
On Gentrification and Housing
Qué pasa mi raza? This is your girl, La Pinche Chinche. This is a manifesto, mi gente. So grab a pencil and take note, because this morning, I’m saying, ‘Basta.’ The way they shut us down at the city council meeting last night, was some straight bullshit – like if we shouldn’t have a say in how and where we live. But if those fuckers think that we’re going to take this occupation, this recolonization lying down, they got another thing coming, mi gente.
On Public Health and Oppression
They’ll never know that feeling what it’s like to love without worrying that you’re gonna die, or worse yet, that you’re gonna kill somebody. I don’t know what’s shittier having that freedom taken away or never having had it to begin with.
