I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.

“For 50 years they have polluted this country with missiles and bombs and told us it was all for peace. For a quarter of a century they have promised us progress, but delivered us the fourth most unequal society in the developed world.”

Sincerely, Be Like HanHan
I think it’s the first time I see gifsets of this scene with comments that focus on how Han Solo respects Leia’s feelings instead of incest jokes. Kudos to you, tumblr user jamesfactscalvin :)
