Wow, the government is still shut down? Quick, lets make our own support structures and organizational body and when they try to re open we say "Naw, we don't need you, we got this."

@dtluna Yeah this post was WAY more mood than I thought it was.

@bob Yeah this was really meant to just be a silly/encouragement post but when I finished it I was like "wait, this is actually what i want right now."

@DragonessDella been thinking it the whole time. How do we get started?

@Roxxie_Riot We organize and start figuring out how to do mutual aid, specially for crisis situation. A lot of organizations are already doing this.

We are already doing alot of what is needed as well by respecting other folks and helping them when they ask/need it.

Corporations are already doing what they can to seize more control during this as well so we should look out for that.

@DragonessDella oh god yeah, we gotta keep the vultures at bay. They wanna tear into these people well before they're dead.

@DragonessDella @Roxxie_Riot How are corporations seizing more control during the shutdown?

@wat @Roxxie_Riot Like they always do. Through controlling public infrastructure and pushing for privatizations.

"Seems the nice folks running the food bank out of the warehouse down the road got raided. I wonder what they were really doing in there..."

@DragonessDella And for the record, I'd gladly help with the fiber optics & other tech stuff like that. I'd do it just so I could actually download a 10GB game update in under an hour for once.

Plus the ability to actually video chat without blurry af video or stuttering audio would be awesome. (Especially now that I finally figured out how to normalize & limit audio volume in Linux so that I don't have to worry about it blasting my ears out or whatever.)
