twelve ways to improve your job :iww: (1/4) 

1. Workers run the world. Everything would stop without our labour. Withdrawing our labour is our weapon, and the right to run things is our demand.

2. At the same time, most work is a bore. As it is organised in our society, most work kills the spirit and body of the worker, not to mention the mind. But to simply call for a four hour day at eight hours pay is not enough. Who will benefit from the automation that could realise such a demand? Who should control technologyโ€™s introduction and integration into the economy? Potentially, we can.

10 Principles of Healing from Trauma 

1. Your trauma was your experience, it happened to you, it didn't happen to someone else.

2. Other people are there to listen.

3. You are a sane human being who has lived through insane circumstances.

4. Your thoughts about what happened do not have to form a singular linear narrative.

5. Your feelings do not have to be consistent about it.

6. You can't turn back time.

7. Your creativity is an ally in this.

8. If you need someone else's opinion and feel like you might benefit from it, ask for it.

9. You lead the way and do what you feel is right.

10. Although you may have had a particularly difficult experience, you can learn so much from it.

Try to have fun today, beautiful people.

Fun is the ultimate expression of liberty. Authoritarians hate people having fun.

dad said i'd get assaulted if i wore nail polish, so far i've only had compliments, from a couple of older ladies who were very excited to talk about polishes and nail strengtheners, and also from a quiet uncertain chap who asked if it was common among young lads, and wished he could too.

musing about work 

@GreenandBlack
Yeah, the old "coercion is necessary" camp. I started unschooling with my son recently and people are like "How do you work all day and still find time to stand over him and MAKE HIM DO HIS WORK?" And I'm like "That's the whole thing...I don't.....and HE STILL LEARNS STUFF."

To-day is the seventh anniversary of Scotland's independence vote. It is a bittersweet memory.

The weeks and months leading up to the vote were some of the best times of my life. I made so many new friends. The possibility of making a better place felt within our grasp.

However, even though the vote was a resounding Yes in my home area, overall we lost by a narrow margin.

It was the best of times, and the worst of times.

Let's do it again.

uspol / covid / reflection on the role of the state 

@bulkington @polymerwitch we have a real problem with this false dichotomy between "the state issues orders and everyone follows" and "everyone just does whatever they want". They're obviously both trash. In my social circles, it has been common take far greater precautions than anything that the state suggested because we know the state acts on behalf of capitalism.

uspol / covid / reflection on the role of the state 

It's really odd to me that some leftists are looking back at the last two years, readily admitting that the state bungled the response to the pandemic, and see it as evidence that a strong state is needed to address challenges like pandemics.
