@rolandwasheeeere @NerdRage42 @ellenor2000 @enby_of_the_apocalypse The analogy exposes the fact that NerdRage42 has a problem #activism. He expects ppl to keep their sense of ethics to themselves, keep their head down, & not advocate moral responsibility. I’m not vegan but ideologically I am aligned w/vegans. I take issue w/vegans who actually do keep their head down. It’s insufficient to just take personal responsibility w/out advocacy.


Thus, many of us (if not most) are left in need of assistance to acquire housing, food, clothing, medical care, etc. Without this assistance, everything breaks down, we are left to beg on every corner, sickness spreads, children die, our bodies fill the streets, & society unravels. Capitalists know this. Yes, they need us to feel desperate & insecure enough to remain motivated (coerced) to sell ourselves to them for survival, but they also need at least a minimal degree of stability to maintain their racket. They need our vulnerabilities & insecurities to be somewhat stabilized and kept at bay just enough to keep us afloat. Because they need our labor and consumption. This requires a welfare state. So, the welfare state was born.

When land & the means of production are held in public hands (as they are under socialism), by and for the masses, a welfare state becomes obsolete. Because we are no longer commodities left to sell ourselves in a job market. Basic needs are no longer commodities that are hoarded & sold for profit. The fruits of our labor no longer go to owners, but rather are retained by us to satisfy the needs of our families and communities.

We have been conditioned to believe the welfare state is a form of socialism when, in fact, it is a feature of capitalism.

When land & the means of production are placed in private hands for profit (as they are under capitalism), the masses are immediately rendered landless & homeless commodities who must sell ourselves to capitalists for wages that may or may not allow us to purchase basic needs, which also become commodities in this process. Like all markets, the "labor market" is driven by competition to fill a limited number of "jobs." Many of us are unable to find buyers to purchase our labor, so we remain "unemployed." Many of us are unable to find full-time jobs or adequate wages, so we remain "underemployed." Many of us have physical or mental limitations that render us "unmarketable" commodities.

Trump has asked the judge overseeing his criminal case in New York City to step aside, citing the judge’s daughter’s ties to a Democratic organization.

So, Trump thinks that judges with close family members who are politically active should recuse themselves on cases with political implications.

(A longer version of a reply I gave on resistance to climate-change action)

While I agree that there is resistance to accepting the bad news, I'm going to give most people the benefit of the doubt and suggest that it's probably not a conscious, rational-but-erroneous process. And it's not dishonesty.

Along with the normalcy bias, that allegorical frog-in-a-pot syndrome, there are sometimes connections between negative behaviours and self-identity that make some changes genuinely uncomfortable, even to the point of distressing.

Consider smoking as an example. A relative of mine refuses to quit because "it's what I do". When I talked to her about it at length and without a "quit!" agenda, she related that she had been lonely at school, but when she started smoking the cool kids became her friends. So asking her to stop was an affront to her being acceptable.

WRT climate-action, whether it's driving a large car or eating lots of meat or anything else, *if* that behaviour is part of your self-identity then being told to stop doing it can be seen as an attack on your self-worth. And 'them' making the 'attacks' louder and more strident is never going to convince you do it, and may well create more entrenched defensiveness, to the point of denying that the reasons to change are applicable, or even real. These are not just "you can't tell me what to do" rebels (although there are some of those), but people who feel genuinely upset about being told that what they like to do is, effectively, evil.

It's not the same as the denialism of industy-level players protecting their profit, and it's not going to be easy or quick to fix.

I don't have an easy solution to that kind of resistance, but I suspect that it's going to be slow and gentle, rather than loud and fast. By all means continue and increase awareness raising. But confrontation is unlikely to win the day in some of the battles.

Climate activism 101 is understanding "Energy and Human Ambitions on a Finite Planet" better than the proponents of fossil production and capitalist growth. Studying this 2021 book by Professor of Physics Tom Murphy and reading his blog "Do the Math" will take some effort, but produces hard knowledge about the causes of climate catastrophe and the desastrous outcomes of an anthropocentric world view. Highly redommended

The Flotilla was bringing supplies in solidarity with Palestinians living under the Israeli-Egyptian blockage of Gaza. Human Rights groups concluded that most, if not all, of the deaths were consistent with extralegal summary executions.

Look, if a FOSS community uses iconography in their logo in political support of anything other than FOSS, and you endorse it because this aligns with your personal activism - how do I politely put it?

You're the one being divisive as you went outside your mandate to unify people around FOSS. You deliberately swung a red flag at a bull whereas interaction through inclusivity would have dissolved away any prejudice or bias - if it were even to arise.

Non accidental death of an activist

"Sure, she was at Stonewall. But that’s hardly the only achievement that harm reductionist and trans rights advocate Miss Major Griffin-Gracy has under her belt. The 82-year-old community organizer drove San Francisco’s first needle exchange van back in the day. In her time at the Tenderloin AIDS Resource Center, Major founded a 24-hour drop-in center named GiGi’s PLace that she stocked with comfy couches and mirrors so that her gurls (preferred nomenclature for her trans sisters) could do their face before heading out for a shift of sex work."

One of the best websites on #Activism is "Beautiful Trouble" (in several languages). A wealth of information on stories, tactics, theories, principles and methodologies. An example: the power of ritual.

"The ritual you choose need not be elaborate for it to have a powerful impact. You can imbue your guerrilla theatre with some of the power of ritual just by borrowing its rhythms. Imagine two characters on the street: a military general and a politician, slowly tossing a huge sack of money back and forth across a wide expanse. In between, a regular Joe, sitting forlornly, watches the sack sail back and forth. Nearby, a spokesperson hands out a fact sheet that tells the rest of the story. Often this kind of nonverbal, ritual-like performance, which repeats a simple but visually arresting motion, can be more powerful and effective than a full-length skit crammed with facts and figures".

They know better than many of us do that cops and colonial conditioning are all that’s separating us from what’s ours.

Black activists are extremely controversial.

Native decolonizers are extremely controversial.

Kanaka Maoli nationalists are extremely controversial.

Anti-Zionists are extremely controversial.

Queer radicals are extremely controversial.

Marxists are extremely controversial.

Corporate media pointedly ignore all of them.

But those media love to cover Jordan Peterson and other reactionary hacks (including neo-Nazis). They don't provide that coverage because the subjects are controversial (see above). It happens because corporate media have an affinity for regressive ideas and a vested class interest in promoting them. By conditioning debate around spectacle, with a cast of smug and unlikable protagonists, reporters and pundits can ignore economic and racial injustice, even as they gesture at disapproval of the provocateurs they cover. (You disapprove of Peterson? Great! Maybe start ignoring him?)

Don't let reporters and pundits absolve themselves of introducing awful people to wide audiences by hiding behind sensationalism. The world has tons of controversial thinkers who are also insightful and compassionate. Arbiters of the newsworthy don't want to cover them. And they wouldn't be allowed to, anyway.

Pay attention to all that is missing from corporate media rather than assessing what they offer. The real story, as always, exists in the systematic absence of certain narratives.

Strategies for Countering Police Access to #DNA Data (Chapter 10)

"#OPSEC is military and intelligence jargon for "operational security" and refers to techniques designed to prevent their people being caught during or after an "operation".
The fact that we have to talk about such things at all when it comes to issues like exercising the fundamental right to freedom of assembly or small acts of civil disobedience is a clear indication of how far the state's mania for security and collection has already developed. It is generally better to invest resources on pushing back the security apparatus than in a technical arms race with state agencies!"

Pretty good security advice for activists on the latest Renegade Cut video. Some of it may feel “paranoid” to the average person but it does make sense to take these steps as an activist who runs a high risk of clashing with law enforcement.

Some of it isn’t realistically possible in some countries, e.g. you can’t get a SIM card from a store without formal identification. A lot of these precautions are also pretty expensive, although some have DIY alternatives.

I’d add one thing he doesn’t mention: don’t carry your burner phone and your everyday phone together while both are active. It’s easy to correlate the two devices when they share enough of a movement profile. Turn your burner phone off (fully disconnected like described in the video) far enough away from your home and workplace so it’s not correlated to where you live.

“Currently, inmates working for TCI are not paid for the work done while serving their time; the only inmates who are paid anything are the small fraction who are employed by TCI’s private sector #prison industries program.”

Can #BobMarley help the #FOSS movement? Think:

“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery”

This can be spun into:

People Emancipated from Intellectual Property → peiparian
Right to be Emancipated with Software Freedom → resfarian
Respect Emancipation from Oppressive Software → reosarian
Software User Freedom → sufarian
Respect User Freedom → rufarian

Plz use reggae & folk artists for inspiration. More suggestions for write-in votes needed.
