People who type their whole thought in slack instead of sending every sentence - why are you a psychopath

It is not a question of “what happens if face surveillance is used against you?” It is a question of how many times law enforcement has already done so. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/01/face

@franklinlopez i'm not a video editor, but dabble in music stuff (which so much of the software is windows/mac only 😖)

These linux boxes have me like 🤤

system76.com/desktops

the system76 os (pop_os) is also my daily driver linux distro now.

I also discovered ubuntu studio. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a pre-tweaked distro for creative stuff (i know for midi there is a bunch of audio subsystem and kernel tweaking that you normally have to do manually)

@UnderScoper i mean, they literally literally are not, just on paper (until the 20th)

that said, there never was democracy, not in the US

Also, there is no new world order, the world isn't flat and simple, so if our analysis is, that should be a major hint to ourselves that we are either missing something, or are participating in thinking meant to comfort us rather than aid our movements

US Pol... Poll! 

Now that the united front against trump is fracturing and dems are moving to re-up their power and surveillance capabilities, can we all go back to admitting that the NYT is terrible and actively harmful??

They are constantly wrong (intentionally or not) about very high stakes things

Their latest daily podcast episode, "Is more violence coming," is a good example of muddled thinking, constantly playing catch-up, and spreading FUD

Black Autonomy Podcast is a new podcast about anarchism and Black liberation hosted by Lorenzo Komboa Ervin and JoNina Abron-Ervin, veteran organizers, former members of the Black Panther Party and co-founders of the Black Autonomy Federation.

This is a podcast I'm actually really excited about!

Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: masto.host/pricing/

"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."

I hope that's clear enough :)

@tom_nomad

I am also concerned about this. It seems like it will force anarchists, or anyone who can be construed as "antifa", into a tough place.

Walking the line between going "underground" (which would be bad for the anarchist "movement", but possibly safer for individuals), or remaining open and public (and become targets for q-violence and state scapegoating/violence)

I understand that this is always the case, but the calculations that go into that choice are going to change a lot now

@paranoid

Yes, indeed, it is, and tragic for the people who get caught up in the cult, and for those that were close to them. Unfortunately, I don't even think identifying who Q is (probably Jim and Ron Watkins from 8kun) will drive people away.

The big concern I have is that some of these people, when their edifice collapses, are going to resort to attacking civilians and launching suicide attacks, like we saw in Nashville.

@tom_nomad

agreed. that video goes into this (how qanon is even a bigger-tent conspiracy than flat-earth, kept the biblical apocalyptic stuff but otherwise secularized) but more importantly, they gave an agenda.

the belief-of-the-week is less important than the way they have mentally structured the world

they have an agenda, facts are just game-pieces in enacting that agenda, and I see no reason to believe that they will only become more powerful

seems pretty bleak 😬

@tom_nomad this all rings true

You mention the millenarian aspects that played into this, which is something that still seems under-discussed in the mainstream. How big of a factor do you think it was (& will be)?

I am seeing this attitude of, "now that people see what their Q beliefs have resulted in, they will snap back to reality."

This video is some of the clearest thinking I've come across, and makes me think millenarianism will become the mainstream of the right

Anarchists and abolitionists should not be be pushing for arrests. It does not matter that they are our enemies. We cannot be against cops, prisons, and state violence only when it is convenient.

Consistency aside, expanding the powers of the police state is only going to cause increased violence towards black people, indigenous people, non-white people, and the unhoused in the long run. They will increasingly target antifascist protesters and anarchists as well.

@sennasoyboy definitley still in the techie-tinkerer hobby phase

a friend recently got one, and had to install a new linux distro on it to get it stable enough to use. not sure if he ever got the SIM card working
