He kneels horn and shoulder above your recuperacoon.
This is the opposite of how this was meant to go. You thought you’d someday swagger into a room and use cool sickle moves to take down persecuting Highbloods, or preferably persecuting Highblood robots because the Messiah pukes at blood, sorry faithful, and come jelly-to-jelly with your moirail. Stop. Stay still as love altered time. Stride towards each other in slo-mo before you shooshpapped, tentatively at first and then with growing sensuality and confidence. It would be so romantic that your later best-selling biographical film would have to cut it to get a rating of PG-13 (pupescent grubs will feel thirteen sweeps of trauma).
You are furious that instead, you’ve learned to fake bravery.
FOR NOT RECOGNIZING YOU, I MEAN. YOU’VE JUST CHANGED. A LOT. FROM. YOUR PROFILE PICTURE. NAMELY BECAUSE YOUR PROFILE PICTURE WAS OF A PIE AND A SOCK.

Ravitch is the queen. If only the government would listen…
We would also address poverty directly. We would increase the minimum wage and make post-secondary education cheap or free, and we’d improve improve unemployment benefits and offer free job-training to the unemployed.
Poverty is one of the few social ills where throwing money at the problem really does seem to work.
These are not radical, liberal ideas. In fact, in Europe most of them are associated with the more conservative parties, and many of them were associated with the American Republican party in the 80s. But the United States’s political climate is so different from anywhere else in the industrialized world that I fear we will just continue to get farther behind in education (and in % of people living in poverty) until we decide to make some big domestic investments.
