The reason discord makes me so mad is that it proves that with a large enough marketing department you can make anyone in leftist circles throw their beliefs out the window and join the new ominous, friendly, hip surveillence service.

Discord is just slack with default dark mode, don't @ me

The Most Frequently Asked Question about prison abolition 

I love it when I don't know how to do something, don't know anyone who can help, but also don't know how to ask random strangers for help, because that seems scary...

okay now let’s ask the real hard questions

@restioson because, in this hierarchy, virtually everybody actually will get elevated, it’s a good way to ease people into defending the other hierarchies where that is not so much the case. It all serves to further the interests of the ultimate capitalist oppressor class by manipulating those below them into thinking they are not subjugated.

(discrimination against old people exists too ofc. that’s a product of becoming overall weaker and easier to exploit with age. Two sides of the same coin)

@restioson this is helpful to those in power because it means that when they do deign to give you some more rights you’re primed to interpret this as freedom. Virtually no adults in capitalism are free, but this clever trick means that people feel like it, because they’re used to being even more dominated.

And now they’re at the top of this hierarchy, so they get to tell people below them that they’ll just have to put up with it until they too are elevated.

@restioson this isn’t because of any logical reason — people will try to come up with reasons one is okay and not the other, but will never manage to come up with one that makes sense.

It’s because we are taught the idea that people don’t deserve rights for the first 18 years of their life, and should instead be subject to near-absolute domination from their parents and the state. If one can’t sufficiently dominate, the other will step up to the plate.

@restioson even though you can make a reasonable argument about people statistically living less time to see the consequences of their votes or whatever.

But despite this almost instinctive opposition to any other form of restriction on voting, people are almost universally in favour of a lower age limit. Even though all the arguments in favour of it equally apply to old people, and then some.

@restioson An example I find particularly instructive is how people think about voting rights. (As you probably know I’m not a big fan of voting, but bear with me.)

Occasionally people will make the argument that people with dementia shouldn’t be allowed to vote because they can’t make an informed decision. But this usually gets shot down extremely quickly, because people don’t like the idea of there being restrictions on who can vote. A maximum voting age is even more of a non-starter, …
