There is a difference between Socialism & Capitalism.
We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly except crammed in a noisy tube like sardines, which doesn’t count. Humans compared to animals are almost totally deaf, and we can’t smell a fart in an elevator by their standards. We are finite and separate, and neurotic, while the consciousness of an animal is at peace and eternal. We strive and go crazy to become more important. Animals rest and sleep and enjoy the company of each other. We think we have evolved upwards from animals but we have lost almost all of their qualities and abilities. The idea that animals don’t have consciousness or that they don’t have a soul is rather crass. It shows a lack of consciousness. They talk, they have families, they feel things, they act individually or together to solve problems, they often care of their young as a tribal unit. They play, they travel, and medicate themselves when they get sick. They cry when others in the herd die, they know about us humans. Of course they have a soul, a very pristine one. We humans are only now attempting with the recent rise in consciousness to achieve the soul that animals have naturally. —

Here’s How Much It Costs To Block A Bill That 91% Of Americans Support
There’s nothing a little (or huge) campaign donation can’t make you forget about, right? Even that pesky thing called American safety.
Aztec god of death and king of Mictlan, the lowest level of the Aztec Underworld. He appears as either a skeleton with blood splattered all over him, or a man with skull head, but he did have eyeballs. His headdress contained owl feathers, his earspools were made of human bones, and in some artwork he shown wearing a necklace of human eyeballs, as well as his hair contained eyeballs.
Side note: if you ever do see Aztec artwork, don’t assume the skeleton one is him, many gods/goddesses were potrayed that way as it was viewed as a sign of fertility. He wore sandals, a sign of nobility and would be shown with his mouth open, ready to devour the stars for the daytime.
What’s so weird about him?Why do you like him?
Well first off in majority of artwork found of him, he always looks like he has this big toothy grin. He’s such a happy ruler of the underworld, while majority are portrayed as bitter hardened deities. The Aztecs adored him and his wife Mictecacihuatl, the patron goddess of Day of the Dead. When sacrificing time came around, people were always honored to be sacrificed to him. Not to mention the fun pastime of cannibalism is linked to him. Quick trivia: the candy skulls used today were originally acts of cannibalism mixed with some sweets. Yummy.
The one thing I always remember about him is the creation of humans myth. When Quetzalcoatl, Aztec culture hero and god, wanted to create humans he was told he would need bones from the previous world. The previous world was the 4th that Mictlantecuhtli ruled over, and as humans we currently live in the 5th world. Well Quetzalcoatl went down to meet him, at first he agreed and allowed Quetzalcoatl to take some bones, but changed his mind and tried to prevent him from leaving.
In this process, the bones fell and broke off into many different sizes, Quetzalcoatl managed to escape with all the bones and this is why humans have different sized bones. So thank the lord of death for not having your feet the same size as your arms and legs.
