“When you read a great book, you don’t escape from life, you plunge deeper into it. There may be a superficial escape – into different countries, mores, speech patterns – but what you are essentially doing is furthering your understanding of life’s subtleties, paradoxes, joys, pains and truths. Reading and life are not separate but symbiotic.”—Julian Barnes (via artistsdontwearpants)
I know tumblr is like a really touchy place for politics, but I was wondering if anyone who followed me had a good summary (preferably bipartisan) of the new healthcare bill? Because honestly, the internet is confusing the shit out of me and everything is so biased.
I would say I’m like SUPER liberal socially, but i’m always on the fence economically, and so idk, man. I’m really confused rn because fiscally I just think we need to be in a better place, but socially i think we are headed in the right direction, and I just want to know what this healthcare bill really means.
