"In fairy tales, monsters exist to be a manifestation of something that we need to understand, not only a problem we need to overcome, but also they need to represent, much like angels represent the beautiful, pure, eternal side of the human spirit, monsters need to represent a more tangible, more mortal side of being human: aging, decay, darkness and so forth. And I believe that monsters originally, when we were cavemen and you know, sitting around a fire, we needed to explain the birth of the sun and the death of the moon and the phases of the moon and rain and thunder. And we invented creatures that made sense of the world: a serpent that ate the sun, a creature that ate the moon, a man in the moon living there, things like that. And as we became more and more sophisticated and created sort of a social structure, the real enigmas started not to be outside. The rain and the thunder were logical now. But the real enigmas became social. All those impulses that we were repressing: cannibalism, murder, these things needed an explanation. The sex drive, the need to hunt, the need to kill, these things then became personified in monsters. Werewolves, vampires, ogres, this and that. I feel that monsters are here in our world to help us understand it. They are an essential part of a fable."

Star Wars Female Character Meme: (2/4) Actresses- Rebecca Jackson Mendoza as Queen Breha Organa

As a girl growing up and seeing Star Wars, of course you want to be Princess Leia. And to know that I’m actually playing her mother… I just kept thinking about those buns! I was the mother of those buns! Maybe I taught her how to do those buns!

what else should we read to know our history and fight police brutality? this book right here. 
did you know that modern day police descend from slave patrols on the plantations?? 
did you know the police are the pawns of politicians and the ruling class? 
did you know that KKK members eagerly enlisted into police departments across the country? 
we must know our history so we can be victorious and make sure we end this racist capitalist fascist oppression once and for all.

here is a pdf of the book
