    The Alt-Bro believes he’s a good person. The Alt-Bro pretends he has self-hating thoughts. At house parties, the Alt-Bro asks girls if they’ve read The Doors of Perception. He tells them they should read Hunter S. Thompson and “get into gonzo journalism,” though he himself doesn’t plan to write journalism because it’s “too commercially contingent” and besides, he’d rather work on his novel. His novel is tentatively entitled, Towards Death.

  7. The charity is operating as a successful business with employees paid incredibly well. Whilst of course employees should be paid for their work, this seems high for a charitable foundation, especially when 50% of money raised goes towards wages. An effort should be made to maximise the amount of money going to the given charity, rather than offering too lavish salaries to employees. This is important in the context that only 27% of revenue actually goes to funding new research. Thus of the $70 million or so raised so far, only about $17.5 will actually fund research, which is what people donated for.

    This isn’t selfless, morally guided charity, but highly rewarded pay, resembling the way a business would operate. The Ice Bucket Challenge social media campaign is a perfect example of this. By undertaking an ice bucket challenge we are essentially providing the ‘business’ with free internet marketing. It is a very clever marketing strategy.

    This is what privatized research funding looks like.

    Soha Bechara, a Lebanese woman and a member of the Lebanese Communist Party, attempted to assassinate Antoine Lahad; chief of the South Lebanon Army (SLA) militia. The SLA fought alongside with Israel to take control over Lebanese territory and were provided by Israeli equipment and arms. She managed to shoot Lahad once in the shoulder and chest before he was rushed to the hospital. Bechara was held captive for 10 years in the infamous Khiam prison and was released in 1998.

  12. "The problem with the European Left is that they care a little bit about just about everything, and yet there is nothing in particular about which they care deeply. This is very similar to what my old teacher Philip Rieff used to call “the Monroe Doctrine”—not the famous President James Monroe doctrine of warning Europeans to keep their hands off the Americas, but the little known Marilyn Monroe doctrine, named after the famous actress for having once said, “I believe in everything,” and then pausing for a moment before saucily adding, “a little bit.” The difference between European and colonial intellectuals is summed up in the difference between Sartre and Fanon, or between Foucault and Said. Sartre and Foucault cared widely about the entirety of the colonial and colonizing world, while Fanon and Said cared deeply about Algeria and Palestine, and from these two sites of contestation they extrapolated their politics and ethics of responsibility towards the rest of the world. Žižek is precisely in the same tradition and trajectory as those of Sartre and Foucault—caring widely but not deeply enough, for (and here is the philosophical foregrounding of their political proclivity for vacuous abstractions) they know widely and variedly but never deeply and particularly. What passes for the Left in the US is even worse. Since they have seen me (as one example among many) preoccupied with Iran, they think I have compromised my stand vis-à-vis American imperialism or its Israeli colonial outpost—for they too care in abstraction and act in generalities. I am preoccupied with Iran in 2009 precisely in the same way I have been with Iraq since 2003, and with Afghanistan since 2001 (when the best of these Americans thought Afghanistan was a “just war”), and precisely the same way I have been with Palestine all my adult life: from the site of specific crimes against humanity opens up your frame to see the rest of the world."

    Honestly,

    if you’re white and going to try and nitpick with me on this, then you missed the entire point and of that post and I’m not going to try and convince you of something you can easily Google.  

    I know you don’t care about MLK or Mike Brown or Ferguson or the state of black bodies/humanity in this country, you don’t have to bother and waste your own precious time, you will be blocked on sight and you can do the same for me, I recommend it. 

    Oh great. Now anyone who disagrees with you can be silenced with impunity and labeled an apathetic racist. Sounds like a valid way of opening up a constructive dialogue.

    You can always block me, it’s free.
