Nope!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.

The greatest news show on earth.

EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin reports on the case of Marissa Alexander, a Florida woman who fired warning shots in the air to keep her abusive husband at bay, yet is facing 60 years in prison for aggravated assault. Abby then cuts through the media narratives on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, going over the different ways Israel targets international audiences with ‘Hasbara’, a narrative that gives legitimacy to policies that have killed and displaced millions of Palestinian Arabs. Abby then speaks with RT Correspondent Anastasia Churkina about new high-rise apartment complex in New York’s upper east side that features as special ‘poor door’ entrance for the building’s lower income residents. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Susan Hu, Fellow at the Center for Constitutional Rights and Kevin Gosztola, journalist at Firedoglake, discussing a recent article on the intercept that exposes the National Counterterrorism Center’s criteria for adding individuals to the government’s terrorism watchlist, highlighting the arbitrary nature of the guidelines and how over the last 5 years nearly 1.5 million people have been added to the list.

This is a long video, but everyone needs to see this.

So there is a house in Bowling Green, OH, right across the street from the courthouse. You can see in the window a white rabbit in a suit watching the people who walk by. His name is Harvey.

Special thanks to my friends on Facebook, especially Clarence and Michael, for their silly job suggestions these past few comic pages.

Don’t forget! This week, on the 24th, I’ll be at the Toledo Art Walk in downtown Toledo, OH, from 5:30 to 9 in the evening. I’ll be drawing caricatures and selling prints and stickers and other cool stuff.

NEWS!

So christianberanek and I have been in quite a few interviews lately, talking about our webcomic Validation.

First we were interviewed by Watch Play Read. That interview is here.

Then we were interviewed by Land of the Nerds. Here’s Christian’s interview and here’s my interview.

Land of the Nerds also did a review of Validation, which can be read here.

And lastly, we were interviewed by Comic Book Resources. That can be read here.

SO MUCH NEWS!

Started a new series of illustrations. I don’t have a name yet, though I’m thinking of calling it “Superhero Ladies.”

The goal is to create original superhero ladies with awesome powers and not-spandex costumes.

This lady is Sojourner, and she has the power of controlling the wind. With this power she can make herself fly and cause windstorms and hurricanes.
