“Let not a person revive the past
Or on the future build his hopes;
For the past has been left behind
And the future has not been reached.
Instead with insight let him see
Each presently arisen state;
Let him know that and be sure of it,
Invincibly, unshakably.
Today the effort must be made;
Tomorrow Death may come. who knows?
No bargain with Mortality
Can keep him and his hordes away,
But one who dwells thus ardently,
Relentlessly, by day, by night —
It is he, the Peaceful Sage has said,
Who has had a single excellent night.”

~ Bhaddekaratta Sutta

Ah, people are having bad opinions about software freedom again.

Software is a system, systems can do evil, it is the role of the engineer to ensure the health of the system and consider the larger societal effects the system has.

Basically, it's being a responsible adult who gives a fuck about their society and doesn't want their labour abused by those who would like to harm their society.

And visual barriers do work. Deplatforming works.

This article is by one of the women who was attacked on the bus. It is a very very well written take down of why this attack got so much coverage from an intersectional lens. I would read it.

Sometimes it's a photograph in the old way they used to be made for zines and punk band flyers and hacker mags at the headshop and if you stare to hard at the black stain of ink and developing fluid you might fall forever into June of some 1998 you can still smell but never touch the hot sun on your skin the deep deep impossible blue of the sky as a lone aircraft left lazy contrails and a dull roar in it's wake as it flew to some elsewhere not meant for poor kids in the decaying drainage canals of the suburbs on second hand real imitation bmx bicycles with the rattle of spray cans and too loud pop punk on the stereo with eight d cell batteries

Sitting in this Peruvian restaurant watching the old man who owns the joint staring at his remote trying to figure out why the stereo is playing "My Humps" when all he wants to do is watch the ladies football (USA v Thailand).
