there are lots of lefty folks who start companies! lots of folks who have good ideas and are generally agreeable! lots of folks who, at face value, are trustworthy
but google started with "don't be evil" and now they're Google
the capitalist machine eats the best of our intentions and platitudes from trustworthy sources become weak points for exploitation. the good people aren't enough to stop corrosion – and insisting on safeguards isn't distrust
Less interested in the demdebate, more interested in the denidebate, in which @denikombucha tells people why she's the best 2020 choice and some ABC person just sits there nodding.
PSA! Finding work for my friend who's a nutritionist/personal trainer. Please read because there's a lot to this :D Also please share! <3
My friend Jen has fibro, IC, depression, and anxiety. Two years ago she was hugely overweight and unfit, and walking ~100m was enough exertion that she'd feel sick afterwards. Today, she's lost 80kg in weight and is a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist. She does Krav, boxing, runs a community social walking group, teaches teens self-defense. (1/?)
i can't fuckin find it but i read this take awhile back saying all current political enterprises are flavors of conservatism in the sense that they're predicated on the existence of an "other" and ultimately enforce the premise that the law protects some group, but it loosely binds them, while simultaneously it doesn't protect the other and strongly binds them
and that anti-conservatism, were it to be invented, would require that the law can only protect anyone if it binds everyone equally
