Whenever Indian society talks of rape, the narrative of the average Indian woman who needs to be protected refers to a certain kind of woman only. Who is this woman? She is middle class, young, able-bodied, Hindu, upper caste, heterosexual, married, or marriage-able. They are not talking about Dalit women, tribal women, Christian women, Muslim women, sexual minorities - lesbian or transgendered women, differently-abled women or divorced women. They are totally excluded, because they are seen as outsiders by the social system. This is how patriarchy operates.

Geeta Charusivam, feminist and social activist (via indizombie)

The problem is not to leave more and more “free” time to individuals – which might well only be empty time – so that they may fill it at will with “poetry” or the carving of wood. The problem is to make of all time a time of liberty and to allow concrete freedom to find expression in creative activity.

Cornelius Castoriadis, Workers’ Councils and the Economics of a Self-Managed Society (via rvd420)

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety, or possessions - we cannot be free.

Thich Nhat Hanh (via thecalminside)

My revolution is born out of love for my people, not out of hatred for others.

Immortal Technique, “The Poverty of Philosophy” (via eb-n-flo)
