The Feminist: Smart Girls w/ Amy Poehler (by Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls)
Samantha Power, the current U.S. ambassador to the U.N., in an article titled, Is Humanitarian Intervention Dead?, back on 9/29/08.
Another interesting quote from that article, in light of current events:
"History is laden with belligerent leaders using humanitarian rhetoric to mask geopolitical aims. History also shows how often ill-informed moralism has led to foreign entanglements that do more harm than good."(via winstonwolfe)
In a society that judges you based on how expansive your social networks appear, loneliness is difficult to fess up to. It feels shameful."
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (via thatkindofwoman)
