-James Madison (Fourth President of the United States of America)
In light of my recent coming out on the declaration of my Political Science major, I would like to put into words my interest in pursuing such an education. [aka. Because I fucking said so. Enjoy!]
Here we go. In the last few months, I have decided to partner up my Social Justice major with Politics, but not because of my undying desire for becoming a politician. Trust me. I- just like all of you- am thoroughly disgusted by our elected leaders biased interest in immature debates over inalienable rights as well as their participation in bribery and tax fraud.
I don’t want to get rich off of sucking off some CEO’s you know what. Take it as it is. I am a Social Justice major first, and a Political Science major second. Due to my controversial passion for fighting against inequality and injustice, I have consciously recognized my fundamental need for understanding the “system”. Now, I could go on a whole different rant on the divinity that we have granted our government with this elusive (and ultimately false) image of a power beyond our impression, but that’s for a different day (when I have more sleep). ANYWAY. I hoped to keep this short, and with doing so I have reflected on a quote by James Madison:
Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.
So I’ll leave you with this. Believe it or not, I do not actually want to be a politician. Nor do I really want to go into law. However, I do believe that if I am to effectively fight for any sort of social change or justice, that I must first learn and understand my “enemy”.
[It’s funny how that works. And yet, I continue to receive scoffs from individuals who turn deaf and ignorant to my mentioning of politics. I get what I need to. Do you?]

do you ever look back at your mistakes
The difference between tumblr and reddit. On tumblr, people make a jolly good time of your mistakes and you sometimes become tumblr famous from them. On reddit, people rip out your soul and burn what’s left of your dignity when you screw up whilst leaving your remains to rot in a ditch.
