Capitalism Ruins Everything Around Me

Is it just me or does DDG struggle with non-English queries?

Sorry I'm still on dot social. I will self-host as soon as I can.

Good thing I accidentally picked a unisex name, even though I thought I was "the opposite gender" for a while.

I don't use Google stuff but I still get to have a Google profile since I email people who use Gmail. 😊

At this time next week I'll sneak off to the airport at night and go hang out with the boyfriend for a few weeks. And the next time I go, it'll be a one-way ticket. :)

It's amusing to me that the Swedes have a museum dedicated to a really bad boat that sank instead of serving its purpose.

If we had web standards that could actually be implemented by a decent programmer, I'm sure we'd have plenty of browser engines.

@alva
If the economic costs reflected the environmental and human costs, the cheapest way to do a thing would also be the best way to do a thing.

There needs to be enough taxes, regulations, and other incentives, such that unsustainable, unethical production becomes more expensive than sustainable, ethical production. That's the only thing capitalist corporations understand.

They're only obsolete because corporations want them to be. Capitalism destroys everything.

We've already killed off 60% of animal populations since 1970. Meat production has wiped out so many species and their habitats. There's already as many smartphones as there are people.

«Deep-sea mining could find rare elements for smartphones — but will it destroy rare species?»

Oh fuck offff.

Does it matter much that something is an "open standard" if it's so hideously complex that one of the largest, richest tech companies in the world gave up on implementing it?
