the always sharp Corey Mohler (Existential Comics) has a neat summary:
« Watching Elon Musk seamlessly moving from "the free market solves everything" to "trade unions sow social division among classes" and "we need a watchdog to discredit lying journalists" is like watching capitalism decay into fascism in real time on twitter. »

C'est marrant comment les gens se disent "islam = homophobie, sexisme, etc" mais oublient que l'église catholique a pas mal lutté (et lutte toujours) contre le mariage pour tou•te•s, contre l'IVG, contre l'égalité hommes-femmes etc
Comme si il y avait un mécanisme de la société qui faisait qu'on demandait plus aux musulman•es qu'aux catholiques de se justifier
ugh i really hope crossposters don't slowly choke mastodon like they did to diaspora*
if you're just crossposting everything you tweet on birdsite then what even is the point of making a mastodon account? that's glorified spam at worst, and a recipe for abandonment.
Les « participations forfaitaires et franchises » de l'assurance maladie… ou comment décourager encore un peu les pauvres de se soigner.
Vivement qu'on revienne à un régime général unifié capable de faire des investissements et de la prévention, qu'on vire les patrons et l'état de la gestion de la sécurité sociale et qu'on démentèle les mutuelles complémentaires.

– 'A group of Cuban anarchists announced "a new phase in the process of self-emancipation," with the opening of ABRA Social Center and Libertarian Library in Havana's Vedado district. This endeavor of the Alfredo López Libertarian Workshop (an anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist initiative launched in 2012, whicn forms part of the Anarchist Federation of the Caribbean and Central America), with the collaboration of allied collectives such as the Cuban Critical Observatory, seeks "to build an autonomous and sustainable space in today's Cuba."'
(As it happens, the French did eventually achieve their goal in Mexico, taking Mexico City and installing Maximillien I as Emperor of Mexico. But it took them so long that the US Civil War was over, and when the Mexicans began to revolt against Maximillien and the baleful eye of the US swung south, France decided that it /really/ didn't want to have /that/ war and pulled out.)
Remember: Cinco de Mayo is not "Mexican Independence Day" (that's September 16).
Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory of the Mexican army on May 5, 1862 over the larger, better-equipped French Army at the Battle of Puebla.
And the US has reason to celebrate it: scholars believe that if the French hadn't been thwarted at Puebla, they would have turned northward to help the Confederacy in the US Civil War, potentially changing that war's outcome.
