- Learning new things

Hello friends! I just wanted to update you that I'll be moving (back) to radical.town now that SBC is shutting down. For some reason I can't transfer my account to there, so I thought I would send a message!

My account is now at @wuz.

Since you are following me here, I thought you might want to continue following me there.
See you soon.

Ah shit. Well it's been real SBC. Maybe now I'll just start up my own personal instance. Bouncing around has got me a bit frazzled. I'll ping you lot when I'm somewhere else. Until then - so long, partners.

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."

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..."
