workers of all countries unite
twelve ways to improve your job (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 technology’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.
@moss détournement was this idea by the Situationists, a marxist avant-garde movement in mid 20th century Europe. It's basically hijacking capitalist imagery to make an anti-capitalist point. Think Banksy's piece where the homeless man is shining Ronald McDonald's shoe. The problem being, you're just gonna sell more burgers that way.
oooh John Green did a video on 1848, I wonder how oversimplified it is...
The recording of my talk today on the future of Internet regulation at the European Parliament is now available to watch.
yeah I respect #BrynField
it's after the 15th of the month, and you know what that means? I'm broke again! yaaaay!
i've got some food for now, but i'll need more groceries in a day or two, i've got a phone bill to pay, and i'm all out of weed, which i smoke every day to deal with PTSD-related anxiety.
i live on fixed income, and it's only enough to get through half a month.
please help if you can, any amount helps. ALWAYS BOOST.
@GreenandBlack I wrote a research paper discussing food forest systems managed by the Kayapo, in Sri Lanka and in the Indian state of Kerala years okay, if I can dig it up would you be interested in checking it out?
Measuring yield is complicated when ever you have a polyculture of any kind so answering your question is difficult. Also many food forests in most existing agro-ecological systems provide what you might call supplemental crops, fruits, medicinal plants, spices and useful non-food material (e.i. basket making material, fuel) while the bulk of caloric demands are mostly met otherwise, often through grain monoculture. The permaculture dream of a multistory, entirely perennial agro-ecosystem which satisfies all food demands is not something which (so far as I am aware) really exists in most of the world.
