    I’ve barely seen anything about this on tumblr at all, and the petition ends in TWO DAYS!

    It’s about making an attempt of introducing unconditional base income in EU. yes, that means guaranteed income. instead of spending endless amounts of money on administration and control systems and different rates of benefits for different kinds of situations, everyone would be guaranteed an income.

    This petition is not about definitely introducing this, but it’s about seriously looking into if this would be doable.

    SEVEN countries need to reach the quotum, and four as so far. If you are in Netherlands, Hungary or Estonia, I especially encourage you to sign since those are the countries closest to reaching it right now.

    An Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) is a recurring, universal payment to everyone - as an individual right, without means test or any obligation to work or perform other services in return, and high enough to ensure an existence in dignity and participation in society. The current social security systems are demeaning and inadequate in addressing the roots of poverty. UBI would transform social security from a compensatory system into an emancipatory system, one that trusts people to make their own decisions, and does not stigmatize them for their circumstances.

    If we collect one million statements of support for Basic Income from the 500 million inhabitants of the European Union, the European Commission will have to examine our initiative carefully and arrange for a public hearing in the European Parliament.

    recap! maybe money for everyone instead of demeaning benefits systems, TWO DAYS TO GO, and we been loads of signatures!

    PLEASE REBLOG

  • "Women between fifteen and forty-four are more likely to be injured or die from male violence than from traffic accidents, cancer, malaria, and the effects of war combined."

    A difficult, important piece by Ariel Levy for The New Yorker.

    Help do something about it here.

    I swear to fuck if someone tries to come up in here and be like, “SOME men are violent towards women.” NO. SOME men aren’t violent towards women. Read the article, check your shit.

  • Dorian (in the middle) was my favourite~ character on Birds of a Feather.

    Patsy (from Absolutely Fabulous), Maryann (from Cybill) and Dorian… loved ‘em as a kid.

    Outrageously amazing, x.

  • Birds of a Feather is BACK!!

    I’ve waited months for this… and I’m too scared to watch the first episode, Ha ha!

  • First word mistake of the day.

    "I have interrupted various life experiences as proof that I am right to believe what I believe.”

    *interpreted

    This is one of the most frequent reoccurring word mistake I make.

  • I’m trying not to feel demotivated and sad.

    But I can’t help hating that the winter break ends after this weekend.

    It’s been too short. Too short.

    I’m so sad I can’t even concentrate on studying.

    Looking forward to failing my exams the first week back, x.

    I looked up Azooma seems like a solid movie plot, that hopefully isn’t based on a real story! [but it probably happened anyway :( ] I hope you only had good things to say about me :P I hope you’re having a pleasant new year as well!

    Yeah, seriously. Definitely happened. Happening everyday, even.

    It’s one of the worst things, I think. Because it’s so much more than simply one act, as some people like to think of it. So much more. -_-

    I’d say, like, the end was worth the heartache that this film brings. It was kind of a ‘not much going on film’ just displaying a mother’s pain and the world’s disinterest and lack of empathy. That’s what it truly focuses on.

    I think the mother is so strong, even though you can see she’s crumbling at every moment. So strong.

    Anyways, yeah, I really liked it!! I dunno what others think about it though. I think some found the flashback-y-ness really confusing, but… it was pretty straight-forward, if you ask me.

    But of course!! I was speaking about that time we spoke about snooker, if you remember. Hahahahaa, and then about how I hadn’t spoken to you in too long and your job aspirations and then I wondered if they ahd changed since we last spoke~ Heh.

    =D And I hope things are stupidly well for you at the moment, x.
