Leaderless Revolution for the 21st CenturyA little while ago, I read a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century by Carne Ross, a former member of the British Foreign Office and delegate of the UK mission to the UN who left his job after seeing how so-called "representatives" represent themselves and the interests of their biggest supporters (such as multinational corporations) rather than the people of the society who elected them or who they were appointed to represent. Ross believes that this removal of agency from the people themselves to representatives, and the alienation it causes, is responsible for much of the conflict in the world. Therefore, he supports a leaderless consensus-based directly democratic government, i.e., anarchism. He gives precedents for this type of government in societies from pre-industrial tribes to the anarchist communes of Spain in the 1930s, the latter being the subject of George Orwell's panegyric HoLeaderless Revolution for the 21st Century4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Pugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize poolPugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize pool3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The loathsome creature devoid of honor that goes by the name of Tailcat has crossed the line! This vile creature listens to lame music, doesn't do the dishes, and what's worst of all, doesn't put crayons back on their place. This and many other breaches of good manners escalated to the point at which I was forced to declare war! Stand by my side my brothers and sisters! For music! For crayons! For the dishes!
The peace between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia lasted for many years but it's over now! Pick a side and help your army defeat the enemy once and for all!
If your bravery and artistic input will be enough to harm our opponent you'll be handsomely rewarded for your deeds!
If you are caught collaborating with the enemy though, you'll be thrown into the poisonous hamster pit!
Your task is to take part in the war between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia. To do so you have to create a piece of artwork that dep

Jessica Stevens - Introduction!“You really sure you wanna do this? It’s a man’s—sorry.”Jessica Stevens - Introduction!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
“I swear I’ll knock you out. Then we’ll see if you still think the same.”
My name is Jessica Stevens. It’s December 3rd, and it’s my 21st birthday. My four older brothers are here, and so is my dad. There’s a homemade cake in front of me, with about 21 candles on it. They didn’t have the ones shaped like numbers. Can you believe that?
I should probably tell you a bit about myself. I’m about 5’7’’ feet tall, I eat my vegetables and go jogging every morning at 5AM. Since everybody else is sleeping at that time, I try to be super silent when I sneak out. I also like some of the latest pop hits, but I’m not a huge music fan.
I’m also a feminist. Half of you reading this must’ve winced, eh? Well, truth is, I cant blame you. There are some crazy femi-nazis out there, taking things w

KORRA FANDOM ASSEMBLE!HEY KORRA FANDOM, LISTEN UP!

A lot of artists starting out feel overwhelmed by the legal, business, and tax issues involved in starting a small business and becoming a freelance artists. Fortunately, there are organizations around the country to help those who exist under a certain income bracket.
Here is a list of organizations by state.
Each offers different services and consultations, but if you're stuck for information, these people are here to help. Even if they don't know the answer to your question, they might be able to direct you to someone who does.
Though some of the organizations are disbanded, I imagine you could ask for an updated list.

i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell
