I've met Shatzi Weisberger at countless protests over the past 4 years. She's fought injustice for decades and you should check out her fantastic protest signs if you haven't already. It was just announced that she has a terminal illness. Now, she needs your support during the final stage of her life. She is a treasure and deserves all the care in the world. You can donate to her hospice fundraiser here.

The point of history is not to sort people into good guys and bad guys. The point of history is to learn where we came from, how and why people come into conflict, and to avoid the sins of the past.
Making a demographic of people into The Bad Guy for you to blindly hate and blame for the world's ills is one of those sins.
I cannot count how many times wars and genocides began because people were convinced that it was morally righteous to treat other human beings like vermin.

Looking for some fabulous free ebooks to load up on this winter? Go check out the catalog at Global Grey Ebooks, a huge archive of public domain texts. Search by subject, author, title, or keyword, or browse one of the pre-existing categories such as Fiction, Folklore and Mythology, History, or Poetry. I know my fellow witches will want to check out the Esotericism and the Occult section!
You can pick and choose as many titles as you want or purchase a pre-curated selection that covers a particular topic. (The zipped ebook collections make great gifts for bookworm friends from far away!) All proceeds go to supporting the continued existence of the archive, which is maintained by a single tireless worker bee. If you like what you see, please consider donating.
(Keep in mind while browsing that this is an ARCHIVE and these are OLD books. Some texts may contain material that we now know to be objectionable. I would encourage everyone to read critically and to view them as a window into the past and a marker for how far we've come.)
I've been using Global Grey Ebooks for several years now to locate and read hard-to-find ebooks on history and occultism. This is a fabulous resource for anyone with an interest in history, folklore, classical fiction, or classical literature in general.
Check out Global Grey Ebooks and start adding to your personal library today!
