Cody Wilson, the '3D printed guns guy' was just charged with sexual assault against a minor by the Austin police.
Most media reports on #CodyWilson focus on his #3DPrinting gun plan sales, and ignore his open ties to white supremacy: https://www.texasobserver.org/cody-wilson-austins-edgelord-prince/

hey #coop friends! what are your favorite platforms for decentralized decision-making? #loomio has neat voting features, but it seems like you can't organise threads into categories. discourse might be better for discussion but with limited polling features. what do you use and why?
"A left populism worthy of its name would not stabilize the existing institutions around us, but stretch them beyond their limits, breaking them and building a new politics based on radical democracy.

I am starting to read some Rosa Luxemburg but noticed that there are people self-describing as Luxemburgists and people telling them there isn't such thing.
Is Luxemburgism a thing? (As a subset of Marxism in general)
"Sony Finally Admits It Doesn’t Own Bach and It Only Took a Bunch of Public Pressure "
@blackfrog @cocoron nothing about solarpunk was ever a-political and your insistence on removing politics from it is in itself politically motivated. Solarpunk, without the guiding principles of autonomy, community, and social care? Isn't solarpunk. It's just a bunch of tech bros jerking off to art nouveau.
Anyone got awesome LibCom references?
(Preferably from-and-for Latin America or Global South)
Solarpunk fashion week is great and all, but what if I started a #solarpunk action week? Get everyone out there doing something useful then sharing pics and resources
I'll probably wait until Spring so that it'll be a good time for planting. Maybe the week of Earth Day?
Boost if you'd be interested in something like that!
"solarpunk will just be coopted by capital" lmao yeah buddy LITERALLY everything can be coopted by capital, haven't you seen che guevara t shirts and A/O badges before?

This hasn't happened (afaik) but the purpose of the Sunbeam City cooperative is to "promote and act on Solarpunk values," one of which is listed as "Post-Capitalism," and voted on by our current membership, so if you think that Capitalism is inherently good and "just needs fixed" or "just needs liberated from government" you're not joining. Just a preemptive clarification.
Why is GNU Ring that much under the radar?
It seems to have all sorts of desirable features and works really well. It's like Signal, but decentralized and you can choose your identifier freely. Does anyone have any experience with it?
Tried it out on two Replicant phones for half an hour and I'm already a fan
Just saw Sebastian Hoffman's Time Share (2018) movie in Cineteca Nacional and the ensuing audience questions to him.
A very interesting mix between art cinema and commercial cinema, it has a nightmarish ambient tied with a cynical portrayal of capitalism and corporate culture and how a system can break people up physically and mentally.
I believe this can agitate people from capitalist realism and into anti-capitalism.
Search your local cinemas; worth 11/10.
Sunbeam City is a solarpunk instance.
