Petite redif sur David Graeber, son pamphlet “Are You An Anarchist? The Answer May Surprise You!”, traduit en français.

@yhancik I'm trying to think about all the reasonable people who we never hear or see because they don't need their voices amplified to generate ad revenue.
Discourses of climate delay
"In contemporary discussions on what actions should be taken, by whom and how fast, proponents of climate delay would argue for minimal action or action taken by others. They focus attention on the negative social effects of climate policies and raise doubt that mitigation is possible. Here, we outline the common features of climate delay discourses and provide a guide to identifying them."
La pollution de l’air est plus grave qu’on estimait, à tel point qu’il serait rentable d’abandonner les hydrocarbures au profit d’énergies propres, même sans crise climatique. Les bénéfices d’un air pur suffiraient pour payer la transition énergétique.
I think that with the whole #Mozilla fiasco, we're just witnessing once more the limit of the green/open/fair/inclusive discourse when it is essentially used as a smoke screen for commercial activities. For many years now Mozilla has used the model of running a non-profit org in front of their for-profit company. It's quite well documented and as such is not a surprising model, it is used by corporations to interface with different audiences, contexts, etc. There is however always a risk of cognitive dissonance with these models, and this is clear with Mozilla's PR right now, stuck between financial priorities and the need to maintain their image of social justice endorsers they have been working hard to promote until now.

Interesting read on the carbon footprint of streaming
with this important note, applicable to other sectors :
“The broadcasting platforms (their design, the underlying economic model, audience metrics, etc.) play a central role in the form taken by uses and thus their environmental impact. So, uses are to a great extent the product of a system, and not the sole result of individual consumer behavior.”
Un quart du Bangladesh est sous les eaux. Des millions de gens ont tout perdu.
“Le dernier désastre de ce pays illustre une iniquité frappante : les gens les moins responsables de la crise climatique sont parmi les plus touchés par ses conséquences.”

@yhancik they just want you to see their beautiful IDE theme
Europe actually treats asylum seekers worse than the US does.
They fine airlines for carrying asylum seekers - enough money that the airlines would go bust, so they won't carry them. So seekers have to walk or take very dangerous journeys across the Mediterranean.
In the later case, Europe sends them to be tortured in Libya. Out of sight, but actually tortured. We pay their state for this.
@yhancik en effet. Gulps, J'espère que tout va bien se passer quand je vais sortir mon ordi de sa torpeur...
