Twenty lessons from the 20th century on resisting the conversion of a democracy to an authoritarian government. (via Janni)

If nothing else in this post, or even this journal, read that. And, if necessary, practice as much as possible.
"The (mostly BS) accusations older generations make about Millennials is that they are overly-sensitive and mollycoddled; stuck in a perpetual childlike mentality. Those generations’ decision to isolate their children from the comings and goings of everyday life, including exposure to people different than themselves out of a combination of fear and prejudice no doubt has had some adverse effects on their children."

On adolescence as a specifically 20th-century cultural construct, and how it has been breaking down.

And on the lighter side, a short compilation of some of the most unsatisfying things in the world. (via)
