This educational focus on individual heroism teaches people to dream of being the star, and not to do the difficult, often boring work of building a movement. The people who set up the phone trees, who organised carpooling, who made the coffee for everyone planning stuff. Those people are essential and their work is invisibilised as we're taught only the prominent people matter.

Neoliberalism teaches us that what matters are individual acts. So, when we learn about Rosa Parks, we learn of one woman's spontaneous activism, not that she went to activist training and learned that a strategy existed that needed an unmarried black woman of her age and that people had been working towards the bus boycott & lawsuit for years.

Movements are devalued because they work. We are trained to see ourselves as consumer markets and individuals because that works for owners, not for us.

@saper @cnc but the constitutional boundaries were not impacting the way they could organize. Why did they choose to provide workers a democratic voice on how to manage the healthcare budget for a whole country if communists are so against democracy?

Moreover, at that moment in France, it was a new republic, from which the parliament was half communists and socialists. They contributed to make this new republic happen at the end of the war.

@saper @cnc in France, modern healthcare was established by communists. At the time, the budget was democratically managed by workers (not by the state). It was huge (equivalent to the state's budget) and was the pinnacle of economic and social democracy.

Last time I checked, companies under capitalism were mostly working in a feudal manner…

Ce serait cool de pouvoir différencier "archiver" et "mettre un cœur" sur #Mastodon.

Parce que les favoris sont utilisés pour ces deux fonctions au moins, selon les gens. Personnellement, j'utilise principalement pour archiver mais je trouve que c'est pratique pour dire "soutien", "j'ai lu", "j'apprécie ce que tu as écris".

Du coup, quand je vais dans mes favoris, je "dé-fav" ce qui n'est "que" du soutien, j'ai lu, j'apprécie. Pour retrouver plus facilement les toots importants.
Ah et je conserve aussi sur un bloc note les adresses de threads ou messages à ne pas perdre.Aussi.

Ouais, c'est une fonctionnalité d'archiviste que je demande. Suis je le seul ?

En 4 ans, les 3 dirigeants d'Altia se sont partagés 9,4 millions. Et ont coulé leur boite.

9,4 millions d'euros ça fait 132 emplois sur la même période (sur base du SMIC, 1480€ brut mensuel).
Ce qui nous maintient dans le chômage c'est le patrônat, pas le code du travail.

@dashie ça va finir en fork où il vont virer les features admin. Et puis ça sera pourrit et ils seront bien embêté.

Je pense que c'est le moment de ressortir « le code est ouvert, change le si ça te plait pas » et voir leur mines déconfites…
