So, just heard someone mention http://lbry.tv as a decentralised alternative to YouTube. How does it compare with peertube?
incels talk about 'alpha males' in this way that implies they're the 'real men' and incels aren't, but incels 100% are real men. there is NOTHING more heterosexually-manly than entitlement, unreasoned aggression, talking about women like they're your mischievous left sock that keeps going missing just to piss you off, and causing your own problems by being stubbornly wrong despite everyone trying to help you
"It is important at moments like these to try to find perspective in history. The labor movement in this country has had deep defeats — and it has bounced back from them.
In 1926, we lost a massive battle in the general strike. By 1929, Labour was the largest party in parliament. In the 1930s, party leader Ramsay MacDonald almost destroyed the party many had worked so many decades to build. By 1945, that party was rebuilding the country."
Labour's love affair with our broken voting system has cost them dear in this election. They got about 50,000 votes per seat, compared to the Conservatives' 38,000.
PR wouldn't have won them a majority, but it would have put a huge dent in the Tories' majority.
Even under FPTP, a willingness to engage in tactical agreements with other parties would have got them more seats. Instead, they wasted resources standing in safe Green, Lib Dem and Plaid Cymru seats while offering no incentive for anyone to help them in Tory/Labour marginals.
I would really like to think they'll learn from this, but I don't think they will.

Funny how that dial just keeps going back further and further, isn't it? First it was the 1980s with NASA. Then the 1970s with the Exxon stuff, and now we're all the way back into 1966 with the coal industry.
They knew about climate change. They knew they were contributing. They actively decided to change the law to make their murderous activity legal instead of changing their ways. Burn 'em like they did our futures.

He began to realise his hands were shaking. This was nuts. He’d known these two less than a day each and there he was being invited to go watch weird darkweb movies with them. With the woman trying to recruit him into a group of literal supervillains, and a raver fertility goddess who was seventy grams of electronic miracle from jerking him off in the middle of a Malaysian restaurant. He could feel his heart in his throat again, beginning to choke him.
ACAB but especially so in this instance:

I say this as a tourist who had to take cars in California because there was no legal or safe way to walk between blocks.
