I am very much against weapons in space. And I wish we could be spearheading that program to come to some kind of international agreement so that doesn’t happen. That is my only – fear – in furtherspace exploration like always, we hope it doesn’t get abused.
I tend to feed the trolls because it gives me material for my work. I’m sometimes taken aback by the racist and antisemitic abuse I get, but most of the time I’ll get angry for a second, and then remind myself, ‘This is material.’ The trick is not to be too reactive.
We have Russia, on a serial basis, abusing Interpol… The moral of this story is that if a country wants to abuse Interpol they can just keep abusing Interpol and it doesn’t really matter how many times they do it.
My focus is always on the day. What I’ve donebehind me, I try to have respect for it, and keep an eye on it, and make sure it isn’t abused, and obviously be thoughtful about it, because it’s all real to me. I’m basically in every band I ever was in, and the songs, I still mean them all.
For years I had lived in my body half-consciously, ignoring it mostly, dismissing its agendaswherever I could, and foreverpressing it into the service of mental conceptions that resulted, almost as a by-product, sometimes in its pleasuring and sometimes in its abuse.

I have experienced jealousy, possessiveness, verbal abuse and violence from men, but I have also experienced jealousy, possessiveness, verbal abuse and violence from women, usually when I failed to respond to their advances.
If there’s an inkling of abuse, I have to move on. Even jealousy – seems cute it first, but if they’re getting in my head, it’s not right for me. It’s okay to be alone. It’s okay to be single. The right thing will come along.
A lot of times, we don’t seek the help. If you come from a family where you might have been abused, a lot of times, particularly with males, regardless of what the ethnic background is there’s a sense of like ‘Just keep it moving.’
Freud was the son of a Jewishmerchant who had to move his whole family to Vienna because he couldn’t get work. He, as a boy, had to watch his father be mocked and abused on the street for being Jewish… You develop a thick skin and you develop a certain kind of wit to defend yourself.

I’ve met many lesbian, gay and trans activists who’ve told me what they face, sometimes even within the school gates: hate crime, fear of discrimination, physical and verbal abuse, domestic violence and homelessness.
I’m not sure why, but I seem to be drawn to stories about abuses of power. But I’m also drawn, not so much to victims‘ stories, as stories that tend to show how power works. Because if you don’t understand the criminals, you can’t figure out how to stop the crimes.
Only a woman can tell you what it’s like to be a woman in a society where men are in charge. When you have one demographic that controls the livelihood of minorities, then you’re always going to have abuses of power. So this goes way beyond Hollywood.
We Americans like to believe we live in a free country with the right to use the justice system to ensure that government abuses are stopped or redressed. That’s far from the truth, and it’s an awful thing to experience first-hand.
I would like to use the law of this land to do everything I possibly can to protect America’s children from abuse and violence and to give to each of them the opportunity to grow to be strong, healthy and self-sufficient citizens of this country.

This is a gift. This is a gift from God. It’s really like the old Biblical passage that talks about your body being a temple. That’s not to say that I’ve never done anything but I’ve never abused myself. Never gone over the top for a long period of time.
The potential for the abuse of power through digital networks – upon which we the people now depend for nearly everything, including our politics – is one of the most insidious threats to democracy in the Internet age.

As a free-speech advocate, I believe that adults should have access to any material they want. As a parent, and a community member, I think people should be able to protect their homes from imagery – much of it violent – that is, I feel, a form of child abuse when adult society inflicts it upon children.
When I started writing ‘Batman,’ I lobbied heavily to get rid of Robin – or at least not use him in the stories I wrote. Fighting crime with a teenager dressed in primarycolors while you’re sporting a gray-and-black outfit always struck me as child endangerment, if not abuse.
I got married at 22 and remained in an abusive marriage for 10 years. I made up my mind that that was never going to happen to me again. I made a brave step to walk out in a society when you didn’t walk out of an abusive marriage. It was mental and physical abuse.
I’ve had tragedy in my life, and it doesn’t stop comedy, so I think it’s important to do both. Particularly in a superhero movie, but in any movie that accesses all people. Nobody wants to be abused for two hours.
Each year, I picksomething new to learn. One year, it was learning how to knit, and I got ‘The Sweethearts’ KnittingClub‘ out of the experience. Another year, it was to volunteer at the local domestic abuse shelter, and I ended up volunteering there for three years.

I am much more open to plural marriage than I was before, and I now support it in certain situations. I do believe it is right for some people. But our example in America today is gross abuse – I can’t support it in fundamentalistcompounds.
Yes, you have people shouting racist abuse and throwing bananas on the field, and there are issues regarding the number of black coaches and managers in the game, but which other industry allows a young black boy the exact same opportunity as a young white boy?

I’m worried about privacy – the companies out there gathering data on us, the stuff we do on Twitter, the publicly scrapeable stuff on Facebook. It’s amazing how much data there is out there on us. I’m worried that it can be abused and will be abused.
Media corporations have a civicresponsibility not only to prevent fraud and financial abuse, but also to not corrupt or degrade our culture.
Charles W. Pickering

I never yet heard man or woman much abused that I was not inclined to think the better of them, and to transfer the suspicion or dislike to the one who found pleasure in pointing out the defects of another.
The greater the power, the more need there is for transparency, because if the power is abused, the result can be so enormous. On the other hand, those people who do not have power, we mustn’t reduce their power even more by making them yet more transparent.

It’s easy to hurl abuse at those awardsceremonies like the Oscars and all that, which we tend to do. We tend to vent our anger at things which we feel are unjust or undeserving. But when you’re the recipient, it makes it a lot different.
If we had no hope – for a cure, for winning the lottery, for falling in love, for the end of war, for being free of abuse, or for having food, warmth, clothing, and shelter – we would have no reason to go on. What you hope for doesn’t matter, but rather the essence of hope itself.
When you’re in the public eye, it allows people to see you inhumanely. There’s this idea that you have to take the abuse. And when younger journalists, especially young female journalists, ask me how I handle social media, I hate myself when I have to tell them to condition themselves and develop a thick skin.
Let’s face it, who among us wouldn’t take a pill or potion that would make us better at our job? Goodness knows, we abuse substances for just about everything in our personal lives; why not in our professional lives as well?
I do not think that war is always wrong: sometimes it is necessary to stop a dictator, prevent massive human-rights abuses, or expel an invader. But I have also seen that in the modern world, civil wars are the greatest threat to humanitarian security.
Third issue, and again I think it is important to note, anyone can make a mistake and any administration can make a mistake once in a while, but this is just a long train of abuses, an unbrokenchain of following special interests rather than the health of the American people.
Women are routinely demeaned, dismissed, discouraged and assaulted. Too many women’s careers are stymied or ended because of harassment and abuse. In politics, where I have worked much of my adult life, this behavior is rampant.
Screaming at children over their grades, especially to the point of the child’s tears, is child abuse, pure and simple. It’s not funny and it’s not good parenting. It is a crushing, scarring, disastrous experience for the child. It isn’t the least bit funny.
