Wombled a bunch of throw cushions and old curtains, plus some wood and a roll of aerial cable.

*One month later*

User: Capitalism must fall sooner rather than later, or else it will take our planet with it. We must dispose of the Capitalist pigs now. No cops, no borders, no landlords. The time for revolution is coming. This vegan curry I just made is delicious.

Fascists are starting to appropriate soc dem talking points, which is a problem because

a) As the overton window shifts to the left, the right seems like a more moderate option (at least to people who are cool with xenophobia and racism (which is a lot of people in America))

b) Fascists don't actually want social democracy, they want social democracy *for white people*

Who do I know who's good at setting up online surveys?

I'd like to do another yearly survey of makerspace expectations to check against last years.

Last years was a bit thrown together and I'd like something it's easier to get statistics from this time.

I'm still 100% sold on a total reproductive strike for people my age and younger until we address climate destabilization. I can't be the only one with parents so ravenous for grandchildren that they would do just about anything.

"Dear Mom and Dad, I will never bring a child into a world that's facing total, global species collapse. Are you going to do something about it?" The options seem pretty clear at that point.

3am freeform thought of something for the makerspace code of conduct. Will see how it reads back in the morning.

"As a business entity we are not in a position to be moral arbiters of what laws are unjust enough to accept breaking. Our goal is to provide an ongoing community resource for personal creativity, education and prosperity. We can't easily do that if we become considered a problem for the powers-that-be. So we ask you not to do anything as a member that brings the police to our door."

Using my hot water bottle. Simple good.

Unironically enjoying things and showing honest emotions is punk as fuck.

Sleep-deprived train of thought that feels like it could go somewhere useful, follows.

We can measure the efficiency of a machine by comparing energy in to resulting output. It seems like there should be a way to do this in measuring government efficiency in ideal theory.

Solarpunk is a mix of structural efficiency to forward the goal of personal ecology. Learn what you actually need and customise what you can get to fit instead of using one-size-fits-all solutions. Efficiency of existence through bespoke support. That's inherently ecological.

I feel a lot healthier mentaly now that I see all jobs as "a wage I must currently earn under capitalism to survive and have the resources to build alternatives" and not something that should be fufilling or be a part of my identity or a reflection of my competencies in any way shape or form. If I'm lucky and things progress the way I want, I won't have to spend most of my time in service of capitalists, but for now it is what it is.

The rat race is over, now it's a prison break. My skills and my hopes are for life, not for some business owner to bid over.

England: we still have monarchs

everyone: that's bad

England: oh no, it's not like that! they don't have any real power, they're just a family whose lavish responsibility-free life our taxpayers fund due to nothing more than their bloodline

everyone: in some ways I think that's even worse?
