Let’s remember, Jesus was a Jewish man of color, born homeless to an unwed teenager, who spent his formative years as an illegal immigrant before returning to his home country to hang out with twelve men, prostitutes, and socially untouchable tax collectors while he taught a radical social doctrine of equality, love, and forgiveness that included paying taxes, free healthcare, and the sharing of resources within a community.

Canon Jesus is better than fandom Jesus
It sucks being a member of a fandom where most everyone else doesn’t respect the canon
Capitalism would have us believe that we only deserve to be here because of what we produce, and even in our counter- cultures, even in our movements we reproduce the same idea. We only deserve to be here because of what we can produce that other people will buy with their money, time or attention. Our experience of our own lives is secondary, it is only the means of production, it is the products that matter, and unless we make ourselves into both factories and widgets we are not valuable.
The police are the enemy . This is our final statement that is not negotiable. Police are not born to be friends, as individuals and as an institution, and can not be excluded from the list of enemies that must be addressed by for our attacks. As an institution and as individuals, the police goal is to protect civilization and the exploitation it is doing to the earth.

The civilized have created the wretched, quite coldly and deliberately, and do not intend to change the status quo; are responsible for their slaughter and enslavement; rain down bombs on defenseless children whenever and wherever they decide that their “vital interests” are menaced, and think nothing of torturing a man to death: these people are not to be taken seriously when they speak of the “sanctity” of human life, or the “conscience” of the civilized world.
Privilege treats animals better than the humans it exploits.
Nope, privilege doesn’t understand that:
1) slaughterhouse workers have the most dangerous jobs in the world (except possibly some military jobs), so if you care about people, you wouldn’t encourage those industries
2) what the animals are being fed is being collected by humans as much as vegan food is…and a lot more of it is needed:
"agriculture, particularly meat and dairy products, accounts
70% of global freshwater consumption,
38% of the total land use and
19% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions” - UN report (see here: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/jun/02/un-report-meat-free-diet)
(again, if you care about people…!)
3) as the UN report states, “a global shift towardsa vegan diet is vital if we are to halt climate change and other environmental problems”
so if you want people (especially in poorer countries) to live happily… you wouldn’t support the dairy and meat industries
In short, what I think you meant to say was:
"Privilege means that I can spout out whatever garbage I like because I’m too selfish to change how I am, or even look into what I’m talking about"
P.S. I love that your description is “inactivity will fuck you”
yes it really will
Yeah I would rather be picking vegetables in a field than hanging upside down in a slaughter house with a fucking knife in my throat. Fuck off with that bullshit.
"…People of the world, take notice. We are the Death Star. Slavery. Extermination of indigeneous people. Hiroshima and Nagasaki- ring a bell? Napalm, Agent Orange, cluster bombs; Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. We didn’t even care bout winning! We just get off on this shit. Death is our area of expertise and greatest export item! From bugs to vegetation to anything with lungs- we can neutralize it! We can render entire species extinct! Our 2013 models are amazing, and what we have in the pipeline will blow your fucking minds- and kill you!"
