The entire cycle of Republican/Democrat is designed to exhaust us and extract as much value as possible.
A few years of democrats, folks of decency take a breather, the economy improves, and somehow none of it filters into people's hands.
A few years of republicans, that pent up wealth is extracted into private hands, and folks have to spend all their energy keeping themselves and folks they love from being personally, immediately victimized by the state.
Tear it the fuck down.

My #solarpunk also includes space exploration. Think the Belter culture from the Expanse books or the Areophany from the Mars Trilogy.
On the one hand, biodiversity loss is a major issue, and when you’re talking about losing plant species you’re basically on the road to losing whole ecosystems. Every species is intrinsically worth saving, for its part in the greater whole.
On the other hand, I do despair of a world in which we have to motivate people to fight biodiversity loss by warning them that we’re running out of coffee (or chocolate, or wine, or bananas, or whatever people feel they can’t live without).
We’ve hit Peak Everything, people. Moderate your fucking consumption.
sewing! - and masculinity, gendering, misogyny, environmental pol Show more
As I learn to sew as an adult, four things come together to irk me:
- I was, through society and directly, not taught anything coded as feminine;
- sewing, and all crafting, is coded as feminine;
- all things coded as feminine, including crafting, is considered lessor;
- living sustainability and outside of consumerism is, often, a form of crafting.
I see what we did there, and I won't stand for it!
Work, US Gov Shutdown Show more
Another day, another competitor laying off a ton of folks because of the shutdown.
Has me seriously considering my stability in this industry, and how I can jump to a not soul-crushing engineering job.
I just commissioned and worked with @starwall on a #solarpunk flag. These are a few iterations I enjoyed seeing the most. Please feel free to boost, download, and share across whatever you like.
If you'd like higher def versions, please contact me or starwall.
Shoutout to @socalledunitedstates for the base flag inspiration.
