(Y) Dentida

I am a product of a society that does not want me, and my identity is the constant re-imagining of old constructs, living in the border space between who i want to be and who i am... i wish not to (re)cover my past, but heal the wounds to my future

"I’ve worked to eradicate Malaria my entire life, and I used to drive out into the rural areas all the time to do my work. I’d carry large amounts of money without any fear. People would know that I had money with me and nobody would bother me. But things have changed. People have grown desperate, and desperate people do bad things. The population has grown in Mexico much faster than the infrastructure, and there just aren’t enough jobs to support everyone. My company had a job opening recently, and all the job required was a high school diploma, but 400 people showed up with college degrees. And that was for a job that only paid $350 a month! All Mexicans need are jobs. We are not a lazy people. Give us a job and we won’t sleep if it’s necessary. We’ll eat our lunch while we are working. We will work 15 hours a day to dig a hole 10 kilometers deep, if that is what you ask us to do. Because for us, all work is a blessing."

Your body has curves and valleys. It has roads and turns. Your body is a map and it should be explored.

The only thing “free” about so-called free time is that it doesn’t cost the boss anything. Free time is mostly devoted to getting ready for work, going to work, returning from work, and recovering from work. Free time is a euphemism for the peculiar way labor, as a factor of production, not only transports itself at its own expense to and from the workplace, but assumes primary responsibility for its own maintenance and repair.

"Right now we have the Executive branch making a claim that it as the right to kill anyone anywhere on earth at any time for secret reasons based on secret evidence in a secret process undertaken by unidentified officials."
