Every time a liberal tells me (in their own way) that this society in which we live in is as good as it gets, I can't help but wonder what makes them put so much misplaced hope in a system that has left so many behind. How they can still believe that everyone can succeed under capitalism when it is literally impossible. For every person that succeeds under our current system and becomes a millionaire there are millions of people that failed and languished in poverty their entire lives.

hey remember when the Panama Papers came out and showed that most of the rich people in the world are part of an enormous conspiracy to dodge taxes and hoard all their money, and then literally nothing came of it

Do you know how to repair things? Do you know how to hack and liberate hardware? Can you make things? Offer to do those things for your friends if you are able to and if you see a need for it. Let them know that life can be a little less expensive.

What Corbyn, Sanders and AOC goes through is a proof against decency politics. All of these three politicians are the most electable fuckers who can also reasonably be considered left candidates. And right wing media treats them like Stalin and centre left media carries wood to fire. They are getting crucified for following any kind of leftist program. There will be no place for centre left, until we organise oppressed masses independently and on a far left program. Then demsocs can pimp the wind we gathered.
Gmail spam filtering hypothesis Show more
Note that Gmail's false positives don't even all end up in a user's spam folder. Some of them get rejected or deferred, so the recipient never even knows about them.
Since Google basically forces a huge fraction of the population to have Gmail accounts, I'm not sure what can be done about this short of some kind of coordinated anti-gmail action.
Can we start rejecting emails from Gmail with a list of decent freemail providers?
Yes, capitalism is bad, but have you tried patriarchy?

Now if only we could establish a mesh network
We should all just start self hosting blogs and gather together like an RSS mailing list of all the cool peeps to follow. Those who can't self host can maybe find a buddy who can spare a subdomain or two.
And if anyone tries to be the flagship blog or domain, we DDOS the fuck out of em until they chill out.
This is somewhat sarcasm, but also lowkey how I see the true decentralization of the web carrying out.
cis ppl spend their 20s founding startups
trans ppl spend their 20s (or 30s (or 40s (or…))) fighting with their bare hands through the whole of gender and language and society and building an entirely new model of the world from the remaining dust
gotta stop pretending those two experiences should be evaluated in remotely the same way
