"Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt they can't afford the time to think.

This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy."

Hey, so apparently Discord decided to quietly update their TOS with a clause that says you must forfeit your right to sue them or take part in a class-action lawsuit against them.

TOS: discordapp.com/terms
(look for "dispute resolution")

There's a way to "opt out" if you do so within the next 30 days by emailing arbitration-opt-out@discord.com

“Y’all” is a superior plural pronoun. “Ain’t” is a perfectly good contraction. “Reckon” is a fantastic verb for describing when you are of an opinion. “Yonder” is the only word to describe that way over there.
