I am a / radical.

This is because I understand some things that many people do not, or do not want to. This isn’t because those people are stupid or purpousely ignorant; rather, my circumstances forced me to part with some of the comforts of predatory software, and it opened my eyes to the world that universal software freedom could create.

@mxsiege @byttyrs the thing about social media is that it keeps being made of people, often even many of the same people

aleph nora relayed

remember when you were like 15 and all your friends were in the same fandoms and you'd go to anime conventions together, and hang out on the weekends

and now those same friends are working themselves to death everyday doing bullshit work for shit money to pay for college, or are totally dysfunctional NEETs who were chewed up and spit out of adulthood, or are drunk 80% of the time

and the site where you all used to post everyday is now a soulless, empty husk of its former self, having been destroyed by market forces and the futility of running reverse mortgage ads on a site full of zoomers who live like 19th century Russian serfs and will never own a home

I'm really enjoying playing The Sprawl with @Fidgetcetera and @rosebees

So many people love to think they'd be in the resistance against the Nazis, but in reality most people just live their lives and let things happen. "Oh no," they say, "this is bad!" But they support cops, they support the troops, they support their government because it's only the current administration that's the bad guys, really, soon the good guys will be back in charge.

gonna try brewing some high alcohol percentage ethanol

i suspect that we would all be a lot better off it we:

1. stopped writing software and
2. just didn't write any more software, plus
3. no longer producing software, as well as
4. ceasing to construct software systems
