BIRDS

December 11, 2017

"To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and the flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of years, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be."-Rachel Carson πŸ¦…πŸ¦‰πŸ¦† #usedbooks #usedbookstore #virginiaisforbooklovers #norfolk #norfolkva #wildcardbooksandarts #visitnorfolkva #virginia #HRVA #hamptonroadsvirginia #loveva #nfk #norfolkvirginia #hamptonroads #hamptonroadspride #hamptonroadsvirginia #757 #visitnorfolkva #757business #shoplocal

Rich People’s Movements

December 3, 2017

"Why, then, would advocates for the rich ever turn to grassroots tactics that rely on the direct participation of large numbers of people? The answer has two parts: the first part of the answer is that they turn to movement politics when their usual tactics breakdown. Most rich people usually find elected officials responsive to their preferences, but "most rich people" is not the same as "all rich people," and "usually" is not the same as "always." Policymakers in the 20th century sometimes acted in ways that threatened the resources of some rich people. This often happened as a result of a crisis (such as a war or a depression) that interrupted legislative business as usual and imposed new priorities on policymakers. Rich people turn to grassroots movement tactics in part because they were interpreted these policy threats as signals that the familiar channels a political representation had failed to protect their economic interest. The second part of the answer is that the advocates of tax cuts for the rich turn to grassroot tactics in times of crisis only when they knew how, and they knew how only when they had been taught. Such tactics as civil disobedience, demonstrations, and petitions all require skilled. Axis to the relevant skills is a non-trivial necessary condition for the emergence of a social movement. Historical sociologists remind us that the particular repertoire of tactics we think of as "a social movement" is a recent invention peculiar to a few democratic societies. Aggrieved and dispossessed people in other times and other societies have had their own peculiar modes of collective action that little resemble what we think of as a social movement; they might tar and feather unpopular officials rather than petitioning them for redress of grievances, surround the baker and seize his bread rather than demonstrating for lower prices, or head up to the hills to take up uncivil banditry rather than heading down to the courthouse to practice civil disobedience. Such modes of protest are learned." -from "Rich People's Movements: Grassroots Campaigns To Un-Tax The One Percent," by Isaac William Martin 😑πŸ”₯β˜„οΈπŸ’₯ #wildcardbooksandarts

The Will To Change

" 'The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love' is about our need to live in a world where women and men can belong together. Looking at the reasons patriarchy has maintained its power over men in their lives, I urge us to reclaim feminism for men, showing why feminist thinking and practice are the only way we can truly address the crisis of masculinity today… men cannot change if there are no blueprints for change. Men cannot love if they are not taught the art of loving. It is not true that men are unwilling to change. It is true that many men are afraid to change. It is true that masses of men have not even begun to look at the ways it patriarchy keep them from knowing themselves, from being in touch with their feelings, from loving. To know love, men must be able to let go the world to dominate. They must be able to choose life over death. They must be willing to change." -bell hooks β–«οΈπŸŒ‘πŸŒ’πŸŒ“πŸŒ”πŸŒ•πŸŒ–πŸŒ—πŸŒ˜πŸŒ‘ ▫️ #usedbooks #usedbookstore #virginiaisforbooklovers #norfolk #norfolkva #wildcardbooksandarts #visitnorfolkva #virginia #HRVA #hamptonroadsvirginia #loveva #nfk #norfolkvirginia #hamptonroads #hamptonroadsvirginia #757 #visitnorfolkva #757business #shoplocal #bellhooks #bellhooksquotes #bellhookswisdom #intersectionalfeminism #feminism #feministart #feministwriters
