“I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it.” — Robert M. Sapolsky (via pridejoyetc)

Petition to trade places with any non-living-in-Venezuela people who praised the Venezuelan labor law bullshit/Venezuela sending aid to Palestine. They want this feminism/socialism/pro-poc goodness? They can have it. I’ll give it up if it means I can find basic staples on the supermarket/drugstore without being threatened with violence.

Petition to trade places with any socialist in the world who is a socialist, because you are willing to support the system that does this for us, so I am sure you won’t mind living it:

- Live without medicines for high blood pressure (they’ve vanished from drugstores here because of government controls.)

- Live without laundry soap because it has vanished.

- Struggle to find drinking water, it has also vanished.

- Wondering what this has to do with socialism? Remember, the government has established a currency exchange control which has prevented importing raw materials (for production), machinery (for production) and price controls which have made the economy crunch.

- Still wondering “but what does it have to do with socialism”?

Remember, representative of Caracas reminds us that (translating) “currency exchange controls will remain until we build socialism. Currency exchange control is political for us! If we remove it, we’ll get toppled.”

- Live without anesthetics. [1] [2]

- Sit on a table at a pizzeria and watch the table next to you get robbed at gunpoint, and have everyone there deal with it without batting a brow because it’s normal by now.

- Participate in a cult of personality wherever you go. Got to the airport? Enjoy five pictures of the Supreme Commander everywhere. Need to get foreign currency for your studies? Your request will be denied if it does not benefit the nation and when you complain, make sure you praise the commander or else, denied. [My experience.]

- If you are willing to know you cannot complain about water quality, because that’s anti-revolutionary talking.

- If you are willing to have your food rationed and your fingerprints taken in order to check how much you’ve bought:

In short, I just got home from vacations where we spent 3 days trying to find laundry soap through over six grocery stores, seeing empty shelves. And then I had to witness an armed robbery. And during my trip, the price of ice bagswent up 30% from one day to another. Halfway thru the trip water bottles vanished from stores because the bottling companies weren’t supplying enough anymore and were replaced with water bags.

You may send the tickets and the key to your home as well as your nationality kthanks.
