wow, this thread. Nice to see far-left activist Mastodon getting popular enough to recreate the miscommunication patterns of the earlier platforms we all left to come here :) https://mastodon.social/@yogthos/103125095529122548

forever surprised people throw so much energy at microblog platforms when the subject is deeply complex

Oh. For years I've been blaming the old iPad for locking up for 3m every morning I try to use it. This morning I realized it's fine until 60s after I open the Twitter app.
So apparently the iPad is fine, Twitter decides to defrag itself or something a minute after launch, locking the whole iPad up.
"No one had ever asked me to defend my pedagogical choices before, and once they did, I found much of my pedagogy indefensible. I felt regret and no small amount of embarrassment. My teaching was undone by the presence of a question that was never articulated quite this directly but was everywhere around me: Why not be kind?"
There was about a year or so after the end of World War II that some really cool political stuff was happening on the Korean peninsular.
The Japanese empire left a power vacuum that was quickly being filled by the imperialist powers of the USA and USSR and their puppet regimes, but which left room for the people of Korea to form local 'People's Committees' from which to govern themselves.
These happened spontaneously, from the bottom-up in villages, towns and cities alike. Although the movement was nationwide, it was not a national movement, nobody was mandating what the committees should be doing. And sure enough, with the power in the hands of the people, the people took what was rightfully theirs. Land and property was redistributed from wealthy landlords to their tenants.
The committees were huge, the ones formed in Pyongyang and Seoul even presented dual-power structures big enough to rival the states being constructed in both the North and South.
