Damn right I'm a Feminist"You're a Femenist?"
She says in a tone, disgusted and half-expecting
"No." I reply meekly
I can't be a Femenist anymore
Feminist now equates to Power hungry man-hating lesbian
When women were thinking differently
And gathered together
As a strong-willed sisterhood
Demanding a voice in a patriarchal world
Feminism meant equality
Not just between sexes,
But between everybody
A powerful chorus for change
But when we climbed to the top of the hill,
Some wanted to go higher
And became hypocrites
And left us, comfortable with equality
With all the negative stereotypes
Everyone secretly sniggering at us
But the real Feminists didn't care
They went on and stood for equality
Despite the negative attention
Because part of the movement
Was to defy what was traditionally expected of you
By doing something great
And showing them you could do it
And now I know I have to do the same
"No," I replied a bit stronger, "I'm not what you would think a Feminist would be, I don't be
What is Socialism?
Who Owns What?
Socialism is the collective ownership by all the people of the factories, mills, mines, railroads, land and all other instruments of production.
Socialism means production to satisfy human needs, not as under capitalism, for sale and profit.
Who Runs Things?
Socialism means direct control and management of the industries and social services by the workers through a democratic government based on their nationwide economic organization.
Under socialism, all authority will originate from the workers, integrally united in Socialist Industrial Unions. In each workplace, the rank and file will elect whatever committees or representatives are needed to facilitate production. Within each shop or office division of a plant, the rank and file will participate directly in formulating and implementing all plans necessary for efficient operations.
Local and National Government
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
