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.

WARNING TO CALIFORNIA VOTERS ABOUT A MISLEADING PROPOSITION, PROP 25, 1/2 

Prop 25 is a big fuckin' scam.

It proposes a replacement for the bail bond system. This, in and of itself, is a good thing. The bail industry is a wretched garbage fire that hurts the poor, this is not in dispute.

The proposition as writ on the ballot largely fails to articulate what it would be replaced by: Algorithm based profiling.

The linked article gives a lowdown on what it looks like.

I lost my job this morning.

If anyone happens to know of freelance or remote work opportunities, please let me know.

Thank you.

If you want to keep software available to the public, without gatekeeping ordinary users but out of the clutches of Google and their associates, then use AGPL.

It's not that software licenses are perfectly enforced. They aren't. But the silo companies have copyright lawyers who will take your license seriously (if it isn't a joke one) and will avoid even the faintest and most theoretical possibility of litigation against them.

Have I ever talked about how awesome #OsmAnd is?

Here we have a map app that draws maps from vector data in real time, and has quality routing and many other features.

It still runs on an Android 4.4 device with 512 MB of memory, and can calculate routes for several 100 km on a fairly complex road network without crashing.

It is possible, people!

Software, mail encryption 

Migrating from Thunderbird 68 with Enigmail to Thunderbird 78 with integrated OpenPGP feels like a huge downgrade in functionality.

Debian 10: Thunderbird 78, enigmail 

When upgrading to TB 78, enimail and it's OpenGPG functionality will be replaced by TB's new OpenPGP feature.

Enigmail 2.2.4 provides a migration assistant, however, the Debian 'dist-upgrade' process removes the plugin wile upgrading TB.

In order to access the migration assistant nevertheless, download the xpi (via TB's addon menu), install the file and restart TB.

(Yes, it's shitty, we're all mad at Mozilla, I consider migrating. Don't @me).
