Corporate Europe Observatory: *Europe’s two-faced authoritarian right: ‘anti-elite’ parties serving big business interests*

"If the more pessimistic projections are to be believed, authoritarian right-wing politicians will do well in the upcoming European Parliament elections, reflecting a surge in EU scepticism and disillusionment with establishment parties, many of whom have overseen a decade or more of punishing austerity.

These authoritarian right parties are harnessing this disillusionment using the rhetoric of ending corruption, tackling ‘elite’ interests, regaining ‘national’ dignity and identity, and defending the rights of ‘ordinary people’. However, the contrast between this rhetoric and their actual actions is stark. From repressive laws to dark money funding; from corruption scandals to personal enrichment; from corporate deregulation to enabling tax avoidance, the defence of ‘elite’ interests disguised as the defence of disaffected classes is a defining characteristic of Europe’s rising authoritarian right parties. …"

It's a great feeling to finally find a Linux distro that totally fulfills your specific use case.
Manjaro (Xfce) is proven to be the perfect fit for "normal" use on a 9 yo laptop, I know it's a rolling distro and it can break, but I needed something light, rolling, fast and that required minimal set up time.

Ok, make me an opensource, federated, #openstreetmap based Swarm/ForeSquare thingy.
You know, visit a place. Make pic, type something nice. Or not so nice. But I prefer nice things. And then optionally add that to OSM. Or keep it as a personal journal.
Dunno, something like that.

Been living with open source apps only for a while and it's great

What nobody tells you about being a parent is that you'll know a whole new level of anxiety, unlikely anything you ever felt, and the kicker is, it will be there until the day you die, unless dementia kicks in first. My kid is the most amazing thing in the world for me, and I love him completely and unconditionally, but he will take me to an early grave, parenting with GAD is hardcore, thank you wife for being a normal person :)

Can you say googling even if you're using another search engine?
