The celebration of "egging" and "milkshaking" as tools of antifascist action contributes yet again to the age-old normalization of speciesist exploitation.

I'm so tired of stuff like this.

In my book any kind of socialism that is not actually libertarian and thus disregards individuals is inherently unethical, especially explicit state socialism, which is by design authoritarian and centralist.
If someone's communal socialism is organized bottom-up and decentralized, i.e. based on the needs and decisions of the individuals concerned, then indeed it's not inherently unethical or unjust (but pretty much anarchist).
State socialism, however, is.

There's nothing anarchist about controlling others through value extraction.
"Anarchist" capitalists are just anti-state proponents of the "freedom" to exploit those who happen to find themselves on the disadvantaged side of a power imbalance.

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

The lack of revolutionary potential in most existing co-ops is one of the many reasons why cooperative/collective economic projects should already incorporate an inherently anarchist approach at the founding level, and options for long-term horizontal scalability via federation with politically & structurally compatible projects shouldn't be an afterthought.
Worker co-ops shouldn't be isolated. Instead, they should have the clear potential to be integral parts of a bottom-up needs-based economy.

Members of a police force are humans who let themselves be employed as executives of a state's monopoly on violence.

Pigs are one of the largest groups of victims of violent speciesist exploitation.

Please stop conflating the two and stop victimizing pigs even more by using them in your awful attempts at dehumanizing members of the police!

Pigs are not to blame.

Need financial help, please boost! 

Hey there, my boyfriend and I are both unemployed and we aren’t getting much each month. I’m actively looking for a job and it’s a pretty painful process for me.

The end of this month is going to be a bit rough for us, so a little help would go a long way into making sure we can get groceries for the rest of the month and start the next one on a more stable base

here’s my PayPal: paypal.me/SiphonayAV

Thanks for your help 💗

Seattle Solidarity Network has a new tenant fight against some landlords who own a shitload of properties in the Seattle area. They have an on-site property manager who has been pretty relentlessly harassing a tenant and her child for years.

If youre in the Seattle area, please share this site so folks know not to rent from these people: slumlordwarning.com/SternDang

It seems cool and exceptionally useful, but also hard to get into.
Any pointers?

Pro tip: Free HIV Testing: UK 

In the beginning of the pandemic, and first lockdown in the UK, Public Health England declared that we had an unprecedented chance to get HIV under control, with people being in lockdown and not at risk of spreading it.
If people get tested, and they know if they have it we can reduce the spread.

Unless you've not had any sex at all since you last got tested, I'd highly recommend to do it now, before everything goes back to "normal".

You can get tested for free. It's easy to order, comes in a discreet package, and it's fairly easy to get done.

Do read the instructions before starting though, sincerely someone who stabbed their fingers 3 times today.

Guix has made it into Debian Unstable! This means Debian users can use Guix as a "userspace" package manager now! tracker.debian.org/pkg/guix

This is really wonderful! Debian and Guix both care deeply about reproducibility.

This could be a big win for user freedom on both (cotd ...)

Less than $2000 left! I'd also love for us to breach the goal, and shoot past it, because she's still not going to make enough money every month. I know we can do it!

TL;DR: Disabled Native American has less than 30 days to pay back US Govt Disability for having earned “too much money” to collect disability (but not enough to live on).
