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.

I'm Working on a #cyberpunk neo-noir novel! ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Tentative title is "Pandora Downloaded". It's about AIs, androids, a detective with a memory malfunction (brain implants screw you up) and a mysterious murder whose main culprit is a rogue android, in a "Blade Runner meets Ghost in the Shell" style.

Chapter 1 available here:

Donations appreciated ๐Ÿ™ , check my profile for details.

british fascism 

I don't know if it's talked about enough how much of a problem neo-imperialism is in the UK. Like how many people are still proud of the empire, are salty that it collapsed and want to get another going again

british fascism 

good grief that "Strong Britain, Great Nation" song is horrible.

there's some not-so-subtle neo-imperialist dogwhistles in there

@Stoori Nowadays, I shit you not, the government is trying to get schoolchildren to sing a North Korean style patriotic song in schools, about "strong Britain, great nation"

If you have to keep telling people over and over that your country is great and your leaders are strong and life's getting better all the time etc etc, it's probably not all that great

I don't give a moist shit about Plato but the Socratic Method is great tor raising kids (if you have the spoons to go through with it)

I find it really funny that Spanish has genders for so many things but suddenly the possessive pronoun "su" is gender-neutral.

if there's not a term for this already, then there should be. it's a really weird phenomenon I've noticed happening all over social networks

what do you call it when someone is a nationalist but for a nation they don't belong to?

when the end credits roll and you see the film crew was unionized :blobcatfingerguns:

"A London-based hedge fund that suffered losses betting against US retailer GameStop during the first meme stock rally in January is shutting its doors"

"The decision to close down is related to thinking the equity long-short model is challenged," said Kronawitter.

UK PSA: there'll be a test of an emergency alert system today between 1 and 2 pm. Android devices may get a test alert and "make a loud siren-like sound" as part of this.

is there a list of groups the CIA has armed that have then gone on to fight against the USA?

food, culture shock 

do spanish people even understand the meaning of spicy?

everything is so mild here.... just got a spicy curry and I can barely taste any spicy at all

how we see ourselves 

Last year, when the George Floyd protests were really starting to kick off, I saw an American anarchist lamenting how the movement there was not as radical as that of Southern Europe.

I was taken aback by this, as that same day, I had seen Catalan anarchists lamenting how the movement here was not as radical as that of the United States.

Funny how we see ourselves eh
