If you want a straightforward, practical project to help contribute to leftist, anticapitalist, and anarchist movements, then learn a new language. It is without a doubt one of the most limiting factors in our movements.

What is happened in Iran earlier this year? If I knew farsi I could maybe tell you, but instead I just know what the NYT said happened.

if you're going to recommend to someone that they get high and listen to an album, you gotta warn them if the album can in any way be described as psychedelic

The #Seattle winter thing where you have to check-in with yourself around 3:30pm, to see if there's anything you really need to do while there's still one hour of functional daylight left.

Sunset for today, Nov 10, is 4:38pm.

"[GitLab] recently changed its company handbook to declare it won't ban potential customers on 'moral/value grounds,' and that employees should not discuss politics at work.

The policy addition, created by co-founder and CEO Sid Sijbrandij [was implemented] two weeks ago. It was proposed to clarify that GitLab is committed to doing business with 'customers with values that are incompatible with our own values.'"

"if you're worried about the slippery slope that comes from restricting nazi speech, why aren't you worried about the slippery slope that comes from letting nazis speak"

That's pithy and I'm definitely stealing it

I keep hearing news shows quote that Trump tweet — "IN MY GREAT AND UNMATCHED WISDOM" — with a straight face. Like that ain't the most dictatorial thing you've heard in awhile

late teens: Everything is bad.
early 20s: Everything is bad but drinking helps a lot.
late 20s: Everything is bad but I'm going to really clean up my life.
early 30s: Everything is bad and I'm gonna die soon.

My housemates are convinced our house is haunted.

I've lived here for 274 years and not noticed anything strange.

seattle-area folx:

The seattle branch of the IWW will be holding an Organizer Training 101 (OT101) on November 23 and 24

We need to get organized to be prepared for shenanigans — like the cafe vita stuff from this month. Stuff like that is *always* going down and the time to start organizing is yesterday

Then check out registration page here: seattleiww.org/ot101registrati

following up on this cafe vita thing.

Looks like cafe vita is implying people CHOOSE to be homeless so they can get sweet sweet free coffee

reminder that capitalists are not good people. even "small, local" varieties
