"social recession"

Economic recession

Actual biological illness

That's the order from most concern to least for for me

Bong Joon Ho has a movie called "the host" that I can't stop thinking about right now ("love in the time of cholera" too)

("least" is relative here, I still don't want to get sick or get anyone else sick)

Everybody, keep talking.

It’s very dangerous right now, not only because of the bio threats.

Oppressors win by making those of noble intent think they are alone, that they are powerless.

We have seen, here in the fediverse, that we are NOT alone.

Remember this: Keep talking.

I've decided that handsanitizer, as one word, is an official word now

It's sad that the #Oregon legislature has to even consider passing a law requiring businesses to accept #cash. Some of us would like to hang onto what little #privacy we have left. Not to mention this is exclusionary to some lower-income and minority communities.

For a while now, I've noticed that some cashiers give me the stinkeye when I pull out the cash. Excuse me for making you do your job! Excuse me for my tiny act of resistance!

two portions to the show. First, we catch up with Mitch from Red Strings and Maroons podcast about some of what they saw at the A2 rally in Richmond on January 20th & about antifascist intervention. Then, Alexander Reid Ross talks about disinformation, tankies, conspiracy theories & media literacy


"Haven't you noticed how comfortable people feel when on meeting someone they just don't like them? Comfortable, I suppose, for one feels that here, at least, is someone who is not going to have the opportunity of ever disturbing one's life in any way."

An American Anarchist:The Life of Voltairine de Cleyre | by Paul Avrich.

Almost felt like an anarchist prayer

Also, Artemisia Gentileschi’s Judith and Holofernes is at the SAM until the 26th and i love it

May you be a Judith decapitating a Holofernes,
A Joan of Arc leading a people to victory,
A Louise Michel fighting on the barricades,
A Voltairine de Cleyre singing songs of revolt,
An Emma Goldman preaching the gospel of rebellion.

i guess it is official. snow is now something that happens in seattle every year
