So I got myself a random friend request from Myspace. What's neat about this one is that this person happens to be a real person and not a porn site masqurading as a real person. Anyway there are certain things I hate.
The Coffin Texts represents my hatered in its purest form. It is important to note that I am talking about a book, or a series of books depending on how you do the amazon search. Something having to do with egyptians, possibly egyptian texts that were written on recovered coffins or something like that. I'm not sure what they are about and that is part of my rage.
See the coffin texts average about $200-400 per volume.
I plan on being an acedemic. It is something I want to do for the rest of my life professionally. Should that not work out for whatever reason I'll keep doing it in my private life because it is who I am, what I am about, and an important part of me. It isn't just knowlage but showing people how to process, understand, and expand upon that knowlage.
In order for any of that to happen people need access to the knowlage and that access should not be restricted on the basis of ecconomics. Fuck that. Our librarys are in shambles, I live in a country where ignorace is awesome, where our intelegence is put on a graph based on test scores. Education is being abandoned for formulas and it isn't going to get better any time soon. At one point I was going to join the system ie highschool and rail againt it from within. Now I want to join a university, because it is there that I feel I can do the most good.
There are a lot of people who talk about the good they will do someday. Fuck them. There is myself. Fuck me too.
There is no reason for a 200 dollar book. There are important reasons for books. They are tools to help learn. And the ability to learn is one of those inaliable rights we forgot to mention in our constitution.
Oh well I'm full of rage and I don't feel better. I want to steal a copy of the book from a research library, scan it, distribute it over the internet and return it.
Guess what I can't get into at the moment. Its prolly for the best. Oh well. Its funny how random people can do things like that. An argument against setting your profile to private I suppose.
