'The Village Against The World' By Dan Hancox Uncovers Spain's 'Communist Utopia' - Business Insider

We have learned that it is not enough to define utopia, nor is it enough to fight against the reactionary forces. One must build it here and now, brick by brick, patiently but steadily, until we can make the old dreams a reality: that there will be bread for all, freedom among citizens, and culture; and to be able to read with respect the word ‘peace’. We sincerely believe that there is no future that is not built in the present.

The idea that men need meat is a very old one, as Carol J. Adams argues in her seminal 1990 book, The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory. She traces these anecdotes all the way back to the Bible, when the Book of Leviticus chronicled how sacrificial meat was cooked only for the priests and sons of Aaron.

This patriarchal prerogative for meat extended into the 20th century. During World War II, the entire American nation cut its consumption of meat (along with sugar, butter, and a host of other supplies) so that the men in the army wouldn’t have to.

Måla med mens är det nya "paint it black". Full poäng!

Portland artist Sarah Levy got the idea for the menstrual blood portrait a month ago, but then had to wait for her period to come around again to acquire the proper material. Finally, on last Saturday, Levy collected her menstrual blood in a tampon and in a DivaCup. She had to use multiple layers of blood to get the perfect tone of Trump’s craggy, rosy face. “I did a base layer of his face using the tampon from that morning that I had saved, then used a paint brush and Q-tips dipped in vials of the blood from the DivaCup to paint the rest of it,” explains Levy. “It's basically like water coloring but with blood.”
