Pinned toot

So, maybe it's time to introduce myself.
My real name's Hansi. I'm a part of the tumblr exodus. I'm a commie-anarcho-individualist-feminist-democratic confederalist-animal liberationist. I'm an Ásatrú practitioner. I'm bisexual and polyamorous. I'm a philosophy undergrad, currently writing my bachelor's thesis on the right to health. I have a dog. Her name is Stella. I love Doctor Who, beer and folk punk, and I hate Nazis.

being a loyal bernie supporter doesn't mean ignoring the bad parts of bernie's base. it does however mean confronting them.

What, and I can not stress this enough, the fuck.

I'll be shutting SBC down in 48 hours unless someone comes forward to take over all the roles / responsibilities I currently hold. It's hard for me to say, but I'm done with this.

@RadioAngel @GwenfarsGarden @puffinus_puffinus there is a larger problem. Nothing incentives conflict resolution and peer mediation here. The default is always to burn it down and run away.

Petition to make March 5th a public holiday because it's Rosa Luxemburg's birthday and the day that Stalin fuckin died

Optimism isn't about pretending everything's fine, it's about stubbornly insisting on making things better.

The arch of history is long and bends towards justice because we're gonna fuckin make it do that, damn it

Joe Biden's entire political platform is "My best friend is black."

Change my mind.

I really like waking up and finding the end of an argument here. Having to go backwards through a conversation to figure out what the heck happened is very convenient. This website is designed in a very clever way.

hot take, politics 

New rule: you don't get to discourage people from participating in electoral politics unless you can point them in the direction if other viable political participation.

Bernie needs to shore up his weakness with older voters. Maybe show pictures of his grandkids at a speech. Tell long stories that don't go anywhere. Unveil a "universal your grandkids will call you" plan.

In seriousness, maybe he could explain why young people like him so much. Because they're just trying to have a life.

Talk about the younger people whose parents will never have grandkids because of the awful economic conditions they live in.

cancelling / accountability (1/3ish) 

If someone is doing the difficult work of
- realizing that they fucked up
- not falling into a pity-party or self-flagellation
- leaning how they fucked
- apologizing sincerely
- changing behavior

probably the most likely things to block that process and start a panicked fight/flight response (get defensive / mock / ignore / block) instead
would be:
- gathering a large crowd
- demanding an immediate response
- making 'you fucked up' into 'you ARE worthless'

hot take, pol, fascism 

Opposing fascism by 'any means necessary' sometimes means voting against it.

terrorism, fascism 

@AnarchyonGallifrey

Also worth noting that both were eco-fascists who cited 'climate change' as a driving force behind their actions.
We don't get to pretend that seeing your future disappearing only ever pushes our generation to the left.

If the internet is still here in 2060, it's very probably that 'millennial' will be a synonym for a racist white conservative.

Because those will be the senators, the CEOs, all the shittiest old men that hog the power and the spotlight.

And us radicals who survived will be struggling with no pension, listening to a younger generation pretending that we do not exist.
