Sorry, just realized I should have probably cw'd fascism for that one

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*

I'm in a forever 21 with my sister and doing that with the necklaces is the only thing keeping me going right now.

It's there a name for that feeling when you slowly pile a chain into your hand?

Words that would pass as black metal band names if it weren't for the fact they were already first gen Pokémon:


Inside 'cult-like' Facebook, where employees only pretend to be happy all the time
'...Several former employees likened the culture to a “cult.” [....] mployees don’t complain in the workplace.

“There’s a real culture of ‘Even if you are f---ing miserable, you need to act like you love this place,’” said one ex-employee who left in October. “It is not OK to act like this is not the best place to work.”

[....] “You have invisible charges against you, and that figures mightily into your review,” said an employee who left in October. “Your negative feedback can haunt you for all your days at Facebook.”...'

"the first time I got someone arrested [for shoplifting] I jumped up and down so hard I almost broke my ankle" - Travis McElroy

Okay I'm on board with the Travis hate now

wow, this is a new one

if you need my “personal data” to pay your staff then you need to find a more ethical fucking business model

Imagine if public transport was free and available for everyone, and instead of roads and car parks we planted community gardens to provide food for everyone. I think that sounds very nice, fresh fruit and vegetables should be something everyone can get.

I make jokes about guillotines and the like all the time, but I'm actually not interested in the aesthetics of violence. I am by no means a pacifist, but eating the rich is a necessary evil. Too many revolutionaries get caught fetishisting revolution to the point where the revolution itself becomes the end point.

When that's the case, any revolutionary movement exists only as an inverse of the status quo, and then its existence is actually contingent *on* the status quo, because it acquires a status as being SQs "inverse." Worse still, should the status quo ever fall, the alternative will simply emulate the status quo, because its limitations as the "inverse" are defined by the limitations of the former status quo. In other words, it adapts the exact heuristics and ways of thinking as its antagonist.

I'm more interested in constructing an alternative that transcends the present. Endless critique and destruction don't actually produce anything of substance. Guys this is really bad for the indigenous folk in Brazil! Tribes will face total annihilation under the presidency of Jair Bolsonaro! Please signal boost this!
