Vogue Dissent

This attic's got a lot of shit in it.

For all the talk about Australian multiculturalism by the government, they seem to nit have gotten the memo themselves. Ask the training pamphlets and videos are of white and white only Australians.

The fast food strikes across the country aren’t causing nearly as much conversation as they should be.  Everyone was on the Occupy Wall Street bandwagon — where are all of those voices of support now?  Why are people so ambivalent toward the low pay at places like McDonald’s and Burger King?

Because you don’t want the fry cook to make as much money as you do.

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am. 

You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.

"In spring 1852, in one of the periodic nationwide selections for imperial consorts, a sixteen-year-old girl caught the eye of the emperor and was chosen as a concubine. A Chinese emperor was entitled to one empress and as many concubines as he pleased. "—from EMPRESS DOWAGER CIXI: The Concubine Who Launched Modern China by Jung Chang In 1852, at age sixteen, Cixi was chosen as one of Emperor Xianfeng’s numerous concubines. When he died in 1861, their five-year-old son succeeded to the throne. Cixi at once launched a coup against her son’s regents and placed herself as the true source of power—governing through a silk screen that separated her from her male officials. Drawing on newly available sources, Jung Chang comprehensively overturns Cixi’s reputation as a conservative despot. Cixi’s extraordinary reign saw the birth of modern China. Under her, the ancient country attained industries, railways, electricity, and a military with up-to-date weaponry. She abolished foot-binding, inaugurated women’s liberation, and embarked on a path to introduce voting rights. Packed with drama, this groundbreaking biography powerfully reforms our view of a crucial period in China’s—and the world’s—history. Read an excerpt here: http://ow.ly/Bj4St

OMG I really want to read this book.
