Art by @thosebeyonddrunk Over the past few months, we’ve seen the West come together and condemn Russia for its atrocities in Ukraine. Within days of the invasion into Ukraine, we saw sanctions introduced, travel restrictions set, and businesses pulling out of Russia. Multiple Western nations have donated billions of dollars and weaponry to Ukraine. It’s interesting to observe how the West decides which crises are worthy of foreign aid.
if i got sent to war- is it a fun fantasy? inserting yourself into places you don’t belong i call it - seeing the privilege of the oppressed while it’s not there am i wrong? this belief, this idea, a sense of community found in the very place, you’re not supposed to be It’s like, white saviorism yet taken to this max When it’s not about you, you make it an act And as much as you claim otherwise Doing this detracts
Heavy moon full and fat shines bright in the pre-dawn, stars surrounding it made dull by its splendor. No light pollution, no cities nearby to blast photons skyward and ruin the illusion of pristine wilderness. Deciduous trees stand vigilant and block peripherals like porous walls. It is the moon, it is the night, it is the forest, the unseasonable warmth for autumn is expected. In the summer it is unbearable, in the winter it is uncanny, but right now it feels natural.
