The animal liberation movement is rapidly growing, and I'm concerned that leftists are brushing it aside. Not only is it our most surefire way out of impending ecological disaster, it is such an obvious requirement for achieving a upotic anarchist/communist world where there is no class or hierarchy. Animals are sentient; accept it. They have their own unique experiences, just like we do. They too deserve to be free.

btw, if it weren't for open source and especially copyleft enthusiasts totally driving the 3d printing movement from the beginning, we'd have none of this.
Instead it would be a glut of mutually-incompatible rent-seeking "model stores" crowing about how beneficent they are for "creating a marketplace" (in which they get a cut of all transactions)
I just read about someone desiring a $3k espresso machine.
Gee. Just get a stainless espresso maker for your stove or a glass/stainless french press!
You can get used ones for just a couple of bucks.
Then spend your dough on good coffee from decent coops!
The ISO has decided not to approve two NSA-designed block encryption algorithms: Speck and Simon. It's because the NSA is not trusted to put security ahead of surveillance.
