.... Oh wait that's all of us
Funny how that is....
.... Almost as if the economy is designed that way
Maybe if we organised as a class....
Work is a fuck
Build towards a worldwide strike
998,763,976 useless bosses
Redistribute all wealth
My poetry, sad, hope, rough draft Show more
Painted nails chipped and dirty
Form a fist with skinned knuckles
Caught between redevelopments
Our city rendered unrecognisable
A watching eye on every corner
A cop in every phone
No space to feel alone
If one day we could tear it down
Every office block a home
Destroy every shopping centre
Every police station closed
A seedling in sunlight grows
Rewild, regrow together
No need to feel alone
A white #FOSS nerd twitches nervously.
For a moment, on some level, he understands. The hidden surveillance systems in proprietary software are working to *defend* his privilege, not attack it. His fears of 1984 coming true will only ever be hypothetical for him, but are already everyday reality for the people his society criminalizes --- immigrants, muslims, sex workers, ex-convicts, left wing radicals.... Oh god, oh god! All this time the real problem was---
The moment passes. He returns to his keyboard to resume a rant that is only about software.
Another World - Anonhi as "Antony and the Johnsons"
Watch Nae Pasaran if you haven't already. It's a bloody amazing documentary on worker's solidarity and will be sure to make you feel a broad spectrum of emotion.
It actually somewhat restored my faith in humanity, and I'm super grateful for that... Thankyou to the RR workers of East Kilbride from the bottom of my anarcho-communist heart

Please employers, continue to do our job of unionizing your employees against you for us
Vote No on October 22nd, and here's why...
1. Wobblies believe employers are the enemy, we believe in working together as a team.
2. Wobblies want to abolish capitalism. We're proud to be American!
3. Wobblies use direct action and sabotage. WE believe in cooperation, respect and tolerance.
4. Wobblies take your money to further THEIR cause. We provide jobs to help further YOUR cause.
5. Wobblies want "a new world arising from the ashes of the old." We make sandwhiches. No, really!
VOTE NO TO WOBBLIES AND UNIONS
The IWW (Wobblies) are...
"The IWW and Communist leaders declare that failure serves to hasten movement towards revolution" - N.Y. Times
"No Gods No Masters" Against All Authority - Anarchism
"The army of production must be organized... to carry on production when capitalism shall have been overthrown" - IWW
@alcinnz I hated when my boss would ask me, the resident tech, if we could do something, because my answer was always "yes, if you have enough budget, let's not talk about what i can do and let's talk about what you'll allocate resources for, because we don't live in post-scarcity space utopia. So of course the implication there, for users/clients, is: "if we're not meeting your needs, it's because we don't have the resources. you probably gave us enough resources. we misspent. whoops

China social media: WeChat and the Surveillance State
Governments in the UK will love to move towards this kind of state control of people's computing. All of the age verification stuff has this as a subtext.
Some awesome folks from #scuttlebutt are working on building cloud infrastructure for cooperatives
If you are poly you really need to make it clear to every new partner you meet right away. Telling them later when they feel invested is manipulative. Some people really just cannot handle it and do not want it so you shouldn't force your relationship structure on someone else.
The same goes for monogamous people who start dating polyamorous people and lie about being okay with it. That's not going to work out either.
Remember to respect each other!
