@rufousboi the fact that Bezos still works (for better or worse, let's not get into the definition of "work" here) is the best example to strike down the "if we give universal basic income to people they will stop working".

The fact that rich people even use this "give people money - they will slack off" argument is revolting in and of itself.

The idea that people don't work without monetary incentive is sooo weird.

In the Nederlands there are currently 9 million paid jobs and 6 million volunteers. 40% of all jobs are already being done with no monetary incentive.

Which include cleaning up other people's literal shit in any place from festivals to elderly homes, and running into a burning building to save others (thanks @pbandkate )

& people volunteer into their late 90s because having a positive impact on the world feels good

The whole history of man is continuous proof of the maxim that to divest one's methods of ethical concepts means to sink into the depths of utter demoralization.

That is what I have always understood to be the essence of anarchism: the conviction that the burden of proof has to be placed on authority, and that it should be dismantled if that burden cannot be met.

YO! PSA time!
I'm a psychiatric nurse practitioner, means I prescribe and manage psych meds, I'm a trans poly queer that likes helping out the folks who have less of a share of the pie than the rest. You got some medical questions? You got some psych question specifically? Feel free to hit me up for some free-ass informal advice! Consider it a perk of being not a white cishet! :heart_pride:

An apt analogy:

Anti-fascism is like cleaning, it’s annoying, time-consuming, no one wants to do it, and constantly has to be redone, but if you waiver even a little bit, you’re overrun with pests.

When I say yeah burn the entire thing down, drag them all out screaming into the street, salt the foundations of the state, make government impossible for generations, leave the sociopaths terrified... I of course mean the popular drinking game. It's played with three cups.

ORCTOBER FACT #1: Contrary to statements made by Jolkien Rolkien Rolkien Tolkien, orcs do derive their name from orcas. The orcs thought that killer whales were totally rad and asked them if they could use their name. The orcas agreed and then they all did a really sweet high five with slow mo and exploding rainbows. #orctober

Hot take: Linus wasn't offending enough people by cussing at them, so he did something that would offend the people who weren't offended by that.

One of the coolest things about the 1931 Frankenstein, IMO, is that it begins with, believe it or not, a trigger warning.


The movie starts with a totally formal, outside of the world speech cautioning the audience about the topics the film will cover that may be unsettling to some viewers.

And not only does it not ruin the movie, it makes it BETTER.

You guys are open source radicalizing me.

I've already decided that next time I clean flash my phone. I'm gonna try to forego gapps.

Now I'm starting to think maybe I should just clean flash right away.

#2030 "Voting Software" 

There are lots of very smart people doing fascinating work on cryptographic voting protocols. We should be funding and encouraging them, and doing all our elections with paper ballots until everyone currently working in that field has retired.
