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
Talking to people about socialism
When people tell you "socialism doesn't work," some leftists act as though you're then forced to either defend socialist movements of the past (whether you agree 100% with them or not) or else use the "real socialism has never been tried" thing, which isn't really that convincing even if it might be accurate.
I go the historical perspective route. Societies didn't shake off monarchies for capitalist liberal democracies all in one go either, so why would we assume the transition between capitalism to socialism shouldn't be similarly rocky?
the church of christ's rage practices Intolerant Tolerance: we accept all walks of life unless you are bigoted and we cannot be made to feel guilty for it.
cops, facists, devils advocates, homophobes, TERFs, and other slime have no place with us.
our duties include feeding, clothing, and sheltering the poor every day of the year.
protesting is a duty. peaceful protesting is nice, but jesus wasnt afraid of whipping a bitch and neither are we lmao
So, in case people are wondering if #Funkwhale can actually federate with other fedi software such as Mastodon, the answer is yes.
I've included a demo video below. Let me give you some context:
- I'm using an account on mastodon.social (to show you that it works with a current release of Mastodon)
- I'm using development version of Funkwhale runing on my local computer, hence the ngrok.io URL.
This is basic, but it's to show you we're no t lying when we're talking about federation with other fedi software.
Follows will work as well, I'll share a video as soon as it's ready.
@gdkar lmao didn't even realize you had already done this
