hot take, facism Show more
I'm sad to report that fascists can in fact make good, clever art.
Thankfully artistic ability is not correlated with good opinions, nor is most fascist art good.
But if we just say "fascism does not good art make", an apolitical marginalized white boy can just pick up Céline and immediatly get radicalized.
Cw; MH, selfharm description Show more
when i self harm it has to be an accident. It has to be an accident because then i can gaslight myself into thinking its not self harm later.
So last night, I start carving a piece im doing for closure on this part of my life, but i used my super sharp knife, and in the end my hands were bloody. They were covered in the nicks you get from carving without hand protection, or using correct technique.
Its just a really toxic process that i don't know how to stop, because the conventional advice they give to these situations are how to stop straight up cutting with intent, they don't cover trying to make yourself slip down stairs.
my fingers hurt :(
Bitching about parts of herbalism Show more
Sigh, the bad part about learning about herbalism is you will inevitably come across some "this will cure all cancer/hiv" bs.
Haddaway has the answers😂 😂 😂
this album legit makes me cry cw:anti-trans violence Show more
when I first listened to one x it was 2007- i had just come to the realization i was a trans woman, but was too scared to tell anyone. So, instead i stared beating the shit out of my bullies which got my hippie parents concerned. I felt like i couldn't tell them since I was convinced if i came out id be hatecrimed. and then I found the magical world of emo: three days grace, linken park, MCR, greenday...
Riot, Hands Held High, The Black Parade, and Know Your Enemy all said one thing to me: you are not alone, and together we can fight back. and got me to channel my emotions in more healthy directions.
I have been a revolutionary since i was 10 thanks to this stuff, and frankly that's why i don't like the way this era gets mocked even by socialists nowadays. like we live in ad-busters now, and the fact that its no long cool to point that out angers me
unironically tho... Three days grace radicalized me-
you feel alienated
you feel stepped on
your not alone
we can join together
let's start a riot
this intro song fuckin bangs ok
In many ways Malcolm Gladwell is not a leftist, but if you squint you see the leftist ideas hidden within. Like he hates golf courses, not cuz they represent the excesses of our elite, but cuz they are tax dodging and an addictive vice for ceos
In outliers he talks a huge amount about how capitalist meritocracy is a sham, but then in the last few chapters tries to save it. He points out big data sets that prove this like how all the Robber Barons were born in the same decade, and all the early silicon valley ppl were 2... there's some real good scholarship in his body of work that basically disproves neolibralism, and yet he is still at his core a neoliberal.... wild
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
