Why am I an anarchist? I want a system for humanity where the default state isn't suffering.
"Yet the burial of even small children with ornaments indicates that “every one in the society was valued”, said Kate Grillo, the co-director of the excavations. "This was a supposedly terrible period, with much harder environmental conditions that earlier periods, but instead of the conflict you would expect we are seeing larger and tighter social networks,” Grillo, an assistant professor at the University of Florida, told the Guardian."
"People came together in large numbers, probably expending blood, sweat and tears to build these large structures, but we have no evidence for hierarchy or social difference. The discovery (...) challenges established ideas on how and why large groups of people come together to form complex societies."
Further proof there is no "natural" correlation between the size of a human group and the emergence of hierarchy.
"The oldest and thickest sea ice in the Arctic has started to break up, opening waters north of Greenland that are normally frozen, even in summer. This phenomenon – which has never been recorded before – has occurred twice this year due to warm winds and a climate-change driven heatwave in the northern hemisphere."

Self care doesn't have to be fancy, expensive, or time consuming. Step away for a few minutes and breathe.
When people say that redistributing wealth means everyone will be poor, I remember that study that said that after $70K/year, people’s life satisfaction actually decreases. Here’s how many times the Forbes top 10’s net worth would pay that number:
Koch brothers (combined): 1,385,714
Bill Gates: 1,271,428
Larry Ellison: 842,857
Larry Page: 637,142
Sergey Brin: 620,000
Intel (for reasons known only to Intel) has released critical CPU bugfixes for Linux servers under a bizarre license that prevents distros from redistributing it.
