    It is extremely difficult to obtain a hearing

    from men living in democracies, unless it be to speak to them of themselves. They do not attend to the things said to them, because they are always fully engrossed with the things they are doing. For indeed few men are idle in democratic nations; life is passed in the midst of...

    Blind Obedience Is The Dumbest Thing

    Just Because They Have The Power . . .

    That doesn't mean they should have the right to govern your life as if they own you . Refuse to give in to complacency , do not follow blindly . Make those who rule earn our trust , our faith . Question the rules laid out for you , as if your very freedom to live...

    So in my school we have this rule

    where you have to let someone hit you three times before you hit back or you are suspended. I feel like I'm the only one who is like "if you hit me once I'm goin sharkeisha on yo ***"
