I'm at the point where I'm seeing decentralization and community control of production as less of a means to slowly move away from capitalism, and more of a crucial effort to ensure our communities' survival when capitalism inevitably and imminently collapses

Once you pay attention, you start to notice that once the 18-wheelers stop coming, most of us are fucked. Especially now, when most of our possessions are designed to be ephemeral to force us to regularly replenish them

You can't rely on the internet to always give you that information once you need it. You need not only the knowledge, but the experience to keep things running after our lifelines are cut. We need DIY culture and local infrastructure now

@amydentata i think at the heart that's the key to understanding democrats: they're actually doing what they want. Even when they held the majority, they blamed the GOP minority for why they couldn't do what they claimed they wanted to do

the timing will always not be just right, because dems invent rules for themselves that serve as excuses for not doing what people want

Instead of a manifesto write a self-contained solarpunk guidebook full of all the resources you need to build grassroots democratic community infrastructure and walk away from capitalism

what people on the internet think happens when someone shoplifts: "Thank you all for showing up to the mandatory employee meeting. Earlier this week, while I was doing my daily inventory check, I discovered a Reese's cup display which had one fewer product than our systems show. Clearly this can have no explanation other than theft. As such, everyone who worked on Monday is terminated effective immediately, and everyone else will be receiving a pay cut of $1/hr to cover the costs. Cashiers and stockers, remember your Follow/Harass/Tackle training - stopping theft is YOUR responsibility!"

what actually happens when someone shoplifts: "Hey Mr. James I finished inventory for my section - 11 discrepancies, I wrote them all down for you." "Thanks, I'll go fix these in the computer"

when i was a kid i had the sims, and this being europe it had french and german on the packaging

underneath "the sims" it said "les sims" and "die sims", incidentally these are the two most popular things to do on the sims

I pirated a succulent the other day, but he's not growing yet. I hope I'm doing this right

Facebook pigs are so pathetic. They're getting shredded in the comments.

If you don't get a raise at least equal to inflation you're getting a paycut.

I just realized I've never seen a non binary person in any TV show or movie until today. That's wild

*day dreams*
what if we invested in accessible trails and food forests along highways the same way we do road infrastructure in the US? Imagine trails connecting all 50 states with edible food you can just pick and help cultivate along the way.
