GoodGuide is hosting a little app showing donations from companies (PAC/individuals) to each big political party. I found something interesting there. You see that Paul Mitchell contributed 100% to the democratic party though it is near the middle. Coty in contrast is strait to the right.
I thought: Okay, maybe it’s just a bug. So I decided to check every company. Sadly, there were two more companies which weret obviously not on the right place naming Seventh Generation and Method Products.

“There’s no such thing as neutrality of education: there is no doubt that the educational dimension is, by its nature, politics” (Non esiste una cosa come la neutralità dell’educazione: non c’è dubbio che la dimensione educativa è per sua natura politica)
— Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of oppressed (Pedagogia dell’oppresso) (via diegodelavega) (via thusspokezarathustra)
