Recently there was a 'strike' of students to protest against climate change. This strike was inspired by a 16-year-old girl, Greta Thunberg .

When one becomes an anarchist he does not fling explosive cocktails at common people. She does not don black attire, incite riots, or write anarchist cookbooks with recipes on burning buildings. It is true that one can be anarchist and commit trouble galore, but that is not the case on the whole. Modern anarchists are generally peaceful and pensive.

Those Brave Enough

I love people who pursue their dreams, who fall, get up, shake the dust off and continue on their way, a little bit bruised but wiser. I admire people who are able to... Continue Reading →
