I'm shannon, I'm 21 and I live in newcastle, australia. this blog is a muddled amalgamation of my interests in feminist politics, fashion, art and poetry. I'm really interested in drinking irresponsibly, prioritising online purchases before my food for the week and dramatizing how woeful I feel at any given moment. try not to fall in love with me

"Take 9-11. That means something in the United States. The “world changed” after 9-11. Well, do a slight thought experiment. Suppose that on 9-11 the planes had bombed the White House, suppose they’d killed the president, established a military dictatorship, quickly killed thousands, tortured tens of thousands more, set up a major international terror center that was carrying out assassinations, overthrowing governments all over the place, installing other dictatorships, and drove the country into one of the worst depressions in its history and had to call on the state to bail them out. Suppose that had happened? It did happen. On the first 9-11 in 1973. Except we were responsible for it, so it didn’t happen. That’s Allende’s Chile. You can’t imagine the media talking about this."
