US Pol; prisons
US cities jailing people for not paying fines, in direct violation of the supreme court.
🌶🌶🌶🌶 urbanism take
and no, having a city consisting of a couple trendy gentrified districts, a central business district, the rest in poverty, and mass transit solely designed to serve the needs of the suburbs commuting into the central business district and then back home for a 9-5 is not urbanism

Court: Politicians who block citizens on social media violate 1st Amendment: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2019/01/court-politicians-who-block-citizens-on-social-media-violate-1st-amendment/
That decision has... implications. Lots of them.
One of the serious problems with viewing things like copyright as intellectual property rather than a specially granted, limited monopoly is that it prejudices all discussions.
If a phone manufacturer locks down all phones to keep people from installing whatever software they want or institutes noncompete requirements in their app stores or whatever other garbage, a lot of people are going to implicitly be on the phone's side and require a VERY STRONG rationale to 'arbitrarily deprive the company of its property rights'.
Such rationales exist, but the huge presumption based on the already problematic Awe and Reverence for the Word Property really screws up our legal and policy framework.
On the other hand if we made it clear to everyone that we're granting a monopoly to achieve specific social purposes and with specific requirements, then any use of the monopoly would be tried against those enumerated social goods.
"We don't need to keep maintaining 32-bit support, 32-bit x86 cores were last made over a decade ago!"
I'm really sorry if this is news to you, but computers, especially older ones, last a lot longer than a decade.
Consumer computer and software vendors do everything they can to change this now, which is a huge driver for new people to try out Linux for the first time.
It's okay if your project is too small to maintain a lot of architectures, but please don't be part of the problem.
“I voted for him, and he’s the one who’s doing this,” Minton told Mazzei. “I thought he was going to do good things. He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.”
White Americans keep telling us they don't give a shit about a healthy nation. They just want to hurt people they don't like. That has been most prominent motivation for the white vote since the country was founded.
