@wxl @h @fabianhjr As far as I am concerned, "anarcho"-capitalism and capitalist "libertarianism" is nothing but plutocratism.

@fabianhjr @risabee Anarcho-syndicalism is a bottom-up, horizontally scalable way of practical organization of/for anarchists (as in libertarian socialists).

UBI is a corrective measure for (redistribution of wealth) for a problem that shouldn't exist in the first place (horrendous inequality). Saying this , I would still support UBI for the time being.

@maltimore @jz Users of Signal need to have absolute faith in Moxie's server.

The publicness of the server code is of questionable value, since independent implementations tend to be actively resisted.

To #Capitalism, every disaster is an opportunity to kill the public sector (and stiff #cooperatives) that is not to be missed.

because it's pointless to develope free software if society can't be free.
#Fascism is based on opression. Anti-fascism is about to counter this opression.

I mean what are you doing here in #mastodon if you're not in favour of free software and free society?

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.

Another way to help indigenous earthquake victims in Mexico directly is donating to the indigenous reconstruction fund.

Besides Mexico City all of the other devastated states have a high percentage of indigenous population. This bank account was set up by the Concejo Indígena de Gobierno, which is an assembly with representatives of various indigenous groups, and part of the EZLN movement.

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!
