In the US at least, people would rather hide their wealth and "perform working class" than live the idea of "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

in this same meeting in fact someone was like, "i feel bad, all i have really been bringing to the table is money"

and everyone was like, "uh, money is actually really helpful rn trying to get this thing off of th ground"

an interesting parallel to the ecological crisis, but i dont really buy into the "tragedy of the commons" (often portrayed as an inevitable outcome of human nature)[0][1]

in my experienece, the issue relates more to the general flakiness of the american left. all theory, no praxis

this behavior really shines with middle/high class people "performing" a working class life


told a friend i would take the train down to LA to join them at renfair

didn't know at the time this required dressing up

i already wear boots daily, so i am hoping replacing my belt with a rope is enough

Encountering the photo scanner at the airport made me realize how much media coverage is only about 45 now and stuff like this is just humming along quietly in the background

@ElectricAsherah @denikombucha

It is not unusual in a lot of countries (finger print AND photo in Argentina always skeeves me out); it's the fact that this was introduced w/o any commotion that gets to me

There was a period after the prism scandal where it seemed like no new surveillance would escape major press coverage and attention

I am drafting a safer spaces policy for a queer, anarchist space I am involved with. Has anyone got any examples they particularly like or advice on doing this? (boosts welcome)

@denikombucha happened to me on an american airlines flight out of LAX

they did NOT let me opt out during boarding.

Rough, depressing day so I designed some messaging as a fuck you to the system that's killing me

It's got little pull tabs full of links. Obviously if you use it (you're welcome to) you should replace the bottom 2 links with local groups of your choice

@Wewereseeds I think I've thought of this toot every day since you've tooted it. So perfect

getting high as a junior-old: I'm hungry *spends an hour, zoned out, hand rolling pasta*
