It's weird to know people who have created media that's really important to you. What the heck

Open Mike Eagle did a song about fuckin a ghost once

You are not immune to propaganda. You can’t ironically watch the debates.

Kindness is not an inherent personality trait. To struggle, to love, and to be kind are active states of being. You have to go against much social conditioning to be kind. Its a choice. Make the choice to be kind.

But also, be reasonable.

You're not going to love the hate out of a Nazi.

Choose to be kind but understand not everyone is worthy of your kindness. This is being kind to yourself. You deserve kindness, too.

if political power is
making sure the key members
(not managers... unless they are key)
of the departments who's assistance
makes your job easier
(hella easier)
then yes
i hide how far my vines
extend through the company

(cause that's the only power i have)
(meeting needs faster than expected)
(to earn favors)

no one gives a shit if nazis have feelings because they're nazis. it's really not that complicated.

One thing I really love about being on the fedi is that it's showing in realtime that the main problem with fighting and minimizing the harm violent and hateful bigots commit in online spaces is often enabled by people who choose to do nothing.

Dr. MLK Jr. famously said the biggest impediment to progress is the white moderate.

That thought is crystallized if one observes the sheer amount of nonchalant cowardice in FOSS that protects bigots under the guise of 'fairness'.

I should write a blog about how public microblogging is slightly toxic in itself, and describe my ideas for partial solutions (e.g. groups, instance level web of trust, limited fuzzy audiences that aren't predefined, etc.)

I've been working here nearly 1.5 years and I don't have a single work friend.

but then I think about how ive been living here for 4 years and cant really think of anybody I *have* to stay in touch with

so how much do you guys hide your political power level at work?

If you're good at something, ̶n̶e̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶d̶o̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶f̶r̶e̶e̶ do it for free, destroy capitalism, build a community.

Remember how Facebook said your 2FA phone number was for security then used it for advertising? And their VPN that actually spied on you?

Any way, they said their Libra crypto currency is handled by a different group and they won't access your financial data.

IT forcing me to change my password every three months counts as worker exploitation.

I do not own any PINE64 devices. I should rectify that.
