Hey, hi, hello! It's 2020 and I'm Conlin!

I love talking about:
- Software Engineering
- Libertarian Socialism
- Feminism
- LGBTQ+ Rights
- Unions (Proud Wobbly here)
- Worker Co-ops
- Learning new things
- Animals!
- Cooking
- Environmentalism
- Music

& so, so much more.

So... I'm gonna call that an "end" to the observations.

It took seven months between a white person siding with "help educate white people" over "protect marginalized people" and that same white person repeating the same bigotry they were once advocating against.

There's a lot that could be extrapolated here, but it boils down to "are white allies a better advocate against bigotry than those who experience bigotry" and now the answer is provably "hahaha no of course not" 5/5

Hey I want more of y'all to see this than just the boost that probably went by quick:

@silverspookgames - awesome person btw - had a conversation with DJ NDN about "re-indigenization"

I'm only a few minutes in but I'm nodding along real hard.

"This impending apocalypse is just for white people."

(after talking about how the Anishinaabee are in their "Mad Max... apocalypse")

Public transit is really fucking cool.

We knew they've been authorized to do it and now we have footage: Canadian federal police aiming rifles at the Wet'suwet'en land defenders

"Just using the scope"

1) Binoculars exist, but if you can't afford those,
2) You don't have any scopes not attached to rifles laying around? Really?

When do we stop calling police police and start calling them the domestic branch of the imperial military complex?

re: the necessity of work in a post-capitalist society, i think it's important to note there's a huge difference between labour and work and between 'having' to do something because it's necessary or because it's good for your quality of life, and 'having' to do something because your capitalist overlords will starve you otherwise

"as the electoral campaigns for winning the seat of President of the United States become more active, I think I need to speak against our society's tendency to focus social change around politics...

"people are choosing not to feed their neighbor or migrate toward sustainable energy, explicitly because folk would rather seek a political solution..."

Indigenous girls, women, and two-spirit people are going missing and being murdered, and it is not being taken seriously.

This post mentions being informed by authorities their relative was found in a /mass grave/.

And it's /no where/ in the news.

Fuck.

Can everyone put their decolonization book rec's below? I would like to compile a list and add some books to my TBR list.

I'll start:

- Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad

- An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

Strange women in lakes distributing swords is a better system of government than the US has.

Alright folks, 2 questions:

1. Do you use an RSS reader?
2. What features would a modern, useful RSS reader have?

I've only posted about this followers-only so far, but I'm probably going to lose my job (and so need to move, because my job is as the on-sitemanager for an apartment building)

I'd like to transition to doing remote writing (I have professional experience), but also, focus more on providing decolonal actions and education.

I need y'all's help for that. If you can, consider donating via emsenn.net/support/

The closer y'all get me to covering expenses, the more decolonial writing I can do!
