However, Rafsanjani's disqualification was more surprising and the decision to block him confirms that the Islamic Republic has set the priority to a securitarian rule over a theocratic one.
—Milad Jokar, "Election in Iran: Rafsanjani's Disqualification Anchors the Islamic Republic in Securitarianism," The Huffington Post, May 28, 2013

You may object that libertarian securitarianism is more than a bit of an oxymoron, but that's the point. We live in a time of conflicting impulses. Our characteristic self-indulgence is the thought that we can have a sustainable society that maxes out both liberty and security.

brocialist

(名詞) 觀念先進但對女人無感且對女權主義議題置之不理的男性。亦寫成 bro-cialist。這個字是由 bro + socialist 拼綴而成。
brocialism (n.)

引句:
My experience is that 'brocialists' don't openly embrace patriarchy; they deny it's a problem. Or they minimise it. They direct your attention elsewhere: you should be focusing on class. You're being divisive. You're just middle class (quelle horreurl). Or they attack a straw 'feminism' that is supposedly 'bourgeois' and has nothing to say about class or other axes of oppression. Or they just ignore it.
—Richard Seymour, "Laurie Penny on Brand, iconoclasm, and a woman's place in the revolution," New Statesman, November 2, 2013

The "brocialist" is generally a good leftist. His heart is probably in the right place. But he has a gigantic blind spot when it comes to women, one that is both political (he is not sensitive to feminist concerns) and personal (he can be a pig).

I guess Reddit's strong lolbertarian background is why they took so long to clamp down on child porn there?

—John A. Beck and Marmy A. Clason, Light on the Path, Wadsworth, September 11, 2007

I'll be honest, though, I'm pretty underwhelmed with this whole election. I know who I'm going to vote for, and I've known for a while, but I wish I could have been more excited about it. I don't fall into the "undecided" category, but I guess I'm looking for a reason to get enthused — for a reason to change my vote.

I've coined a word for this feeling — "underdecided."
—Grant Hamilton, "I would vote in advance, if...", Brandon Sun, September 26, 2011
