I just found out about crimethinc.com and they're amazing: crimethinc.com/tce

Anything else I'm missing out on?

@unseelie I'm not, generally πŸ˜† but I'm interested enough on the matter to watch them, so thank you very much

Any good resources out there on antifa? I've been hearing about it for years now and yet know almost nothing about it

@Ethancdavenport yeah, I ended up regretting the tone of this toot. It's more like "the single event that, if happened, would have the greatest impact on our political situation". I may delete it πŸ˜•

birdsite, misinformation, fake news

A toot's got me wondering about the nature of consent in a specific way; I won't ever have an Alexa or anything like it, and maybe you won't either; but other people will.

And now I'm thinking, if you have one of these lumps of spyware in your home, should you be *required* to offer a formal warning to any visitors? I think so; you're required to place CCTV warnings if you run CCTV, and if anything systems like Alexa are more invasive, not less.

The data from a CCTV system might never leave the premises; the data from these "assistants" goes **directly** to servers outside either your *or* your host's control, where your voice may be datamined for any damned purpose the server owners choose.

Don't feel bad about saying "I don't wanna come over, you've got an Alexa running." It's not paranoia to be creeped out by AIs (or persons) unknown listening to your private conversations. It's *normal*. You don't *need* anything to "hide" for you desire not to *share* to be valid.

If it's your considered belief that some people literally deserve to die of starvation or exposure or something because they aren't good enough at *making money*:

+ I guess our emissions would meet scientists' recommendations? But we'd probably revert to steam-based energy and throw this alway pretty soon

@canary totally not my thing, just a random thought not that well filtered before tooted.

When I tooted this I thought of how it would do a lot of good by destroying our propaganda and disinformation machines, and also most of the tentacles of the State in our lives.

More like "the single thing that, if happened, would do the most to revert our current political situation"
