Kanske är detta vad vårt samhälles kris i djupaste bemärkelse handlar om - att vi varken kan hitta platser eller framtida tillstånd att rikta in oss mot samtidigt som samtiden känns för trist att leva i. Vi vill packa våra väskor och sätta oss på stationen. Men härifrån avgår inga tåg. Det är hit de kommer.

I’ve been revamping 100 years of Guardian articles, a project that’s been in the works since October 2013, or 1899 if we’re being really accurate. The articles show how we reported the 20th century, from the Boer War to “unstoppable rise of Microsoft”.
If history is your thing, the archive team are also republishing a selection of articles on the first world war.

As the death toll rises in the war between Israel and Hamas, TIME LightBox profiles two photographers who have spent weeks covering the opposing sides: Oliver Weiken of European Pressphoto Agency and Getty Images’ Andrew Burton.
Denying that women are a victimized class is simply wrong. What else would you call a segment of the population who are systematically discriminated against in school, work and politics? How would you describe a population whose bodies are objectified to the point of dehumanization? Women are harassed, attacked and sexually assaulted with alarming regularity in America and around the world, and now even more of them live in states where, if pregnant, they can be refused medical attention or arrested for refusing C-sections.
People who are on the shit end of oppression are oppressed. Accurately describing this is not a matter of politics, but of truth.
Let me weep
My cruel fate,
And that I
should have freedom.
The duel infringes
within these twisted places,
in my sufferings
I pray for mercy.
It’s clear that Israel could break up Palestine into miserable enclaves, but it cannot break its resistance or its passion for freedom from occupation. […] Arrogance all too often breeds stupidity.
