Orientalism

Orientalism - English


This is just a brief introduction to a topic that I suspect a lot of people don't know much about. Orientalism is the form of oppression experienced by Asians and Asian-Americans under white supremacy and imperialism.

I want to stress, I am in no way an expert in this topic. Not even a little. Not only do I barely scratch the surface here, but I probably get a lot wrong. I strongly recommend you look to actual experts to learn more. Here are some handy links.

Shoes Are Life

Shoes Are Life — English


Imagine some shoes. Everyone gets a pair of shoes at birth with the expectation that they'll grow into them.

And the work perfectly well for most people! They can walk, run, play... the shoes don't present them with any problems in any aspect of their lives. The majority of the population is happy and never thinks about their shoes.

They Want You Tired

They Want You Tired — English


They want you tired. They want you scared.

They want you to come home at the end of the day after working hours at your second job, too tired to protest changes to society, to life, to the laws, to wages...

They want you too scared to think. They want you to focus on the object of terror, not on them. They want you distracted.

So they want you angry. They want you to direct what little energy you have left against the detested, minorities, foreigners, safe targets. The objects of fear, hatred, disgust.They want you to only look to the church for hope. The hope of a perfect life after death. The hope of justice after death. The hope of happiness after death. All good things only after death.

They want you not to resist.
