I don't think I ever did this back when I first joined, so here's a little
I'm Squiddy (he/him), I'm an engineering student who would rather bake bread than do engineering schoolwork, and I've really interested in things like social ecology lately, seeing as the world isn't doing so great. I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Bionicle and The Elder Scrolls, and I will readily become a huge lore nerd in something if given the chance. Nice to meet you!

There's a pervasive liberal myth that the powerful care, or even want to know, what we think. It's the same thought process behind sidewalk protests, because the thing that *really* causes change is witty slogans on posterboard

These things have *never* worked, yet people still believe that all we need is a few more signatures and a few more protestors and then they'll crack. Why should they?

The only language the ruling class speaks is force. If you don't make it more damaging for them to keep up than to relent to you, they won't give a fuck

biodegradable disposable cups made from gourds grown in 3d printed molds. sustainable, cheap, eco-friendly. fantastic idea. purpose-grown plants are the future of common household items. why use a semi-permanent petroleum product for something that can be done with what pretty much is elf magic?

I'm at the point where I'm seeing decentralization and community control of production as less of a means to slowly move away from capitalism, and more of a crucial effort to ensure our communities' survival when capitalism inevitably and imminently collapses

Once you pay attention, you start to notice that once the 18-wheelers stop coming, most of us are fucked. Especially now, when most of our possessions are designed to be ephemeral to force us to regularly replenish them

You can't rely on the internet to always give you that information once you need it. You need not only the knowledge, but the experience to keep things running after our lifelines are cut. We need DIY culture and local infrastructure now

No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.

Pro tip: when starting your #WorkerCoop, #IntentionalCommunity, or other collective endeavour, start with agreeing on a conflict resolution procedure, and be very intentional about building trust between the members.

Trust me, waiting until the project is two years in to figure this stuff out is not a great idea.

The oldest known mammal species to evolve on Earth was a small shrew-like creature known as Juramaia sinensis which lived about 160 million years ago. Descended testicles are a mammalian trait thought to have been present in the earliest mammal species. So it's quite likely that anything 160 million years old is literally old as balls.
