Next time you go into a public space by choice leave your phone behind. Whether that's in your bag, your vehicle, at home. Just do it. Engage with the people around you. You never know what you're missing.

Solarpunk, thinking aloud Show more

"Socialists" are unironically singing the praises of a cynical marketing stunt by a multi-national corporation, because it triggered the reactionaries.

The fuck kinda hellworld are we living in?

*wakes up* mmmkay, what are reactionaries pissed about today?

...a fucking advert for razors? Fucking really?!?

I don't know how they work at Buzzfeed, but often editors write the headlines, not the person who gets the byline. I guess no matter what, any headline that mentions "millennials" is gonna put millennials on edge

Those that advocate the hardest for 'tolerance' are those that will probably stretch your definitions of tolerance. Never tolerate anything that makes you feel less valued as a person, never tolerate hate or erasure or marginalization or fear.

The internet used to be a city: it had its weird bohemian districts, its flea markets, its high-rises and back alleys. Now it's just a shopping mall, and I miss my old city so much

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.

basically: help someone who you're not expected to help

- read some books on capitalism, colonialism, history of your area, ideally with someone else
- volunteer at a shelter for houseless people. especially if you have the privilege, consider bullying anyone in an administrative role that's acting like people in the shelter aren't human beings
- that friend of yours that's really struggling to get by? bring them dinner the night they work late
- go to a training on opiate overdose response, get some narcan and learn how to use it

"hi io, I want to try this mutual aid stuff but don't know how"

- find a local chapter of food not bombs, or start one
- join a solidarity union (IWW is good in us/can) and take on some tasks
- talk to people while you're waiting for the bus
- (techies) find or start a repair cafe
- (spiritual people) find a church doing good community work and help, as long as they aren't proselytizing at the same time
- babysit for your radical friends with kids so your friends can do stuff

wow, this is a new one

if you need my 鈥減ersonal data鈥 to pay your staff then you need to find a more ethical fucking business model
