uspol, white supremacism, classism, ableism 

> Since Wednesday’s assault on the Capitol, I have seen the mob described as anything from “bubbas” to “hicks” to “uneducated trailer trash.” However, just today I saw a CEO, a district court judge’s son, a pharmacist, a mayor, and a woman who flew on a private jet to the rally all be doxxed on Twitter for their participation in the mob. Our rush to distance ourselves from unsavory racists and discounting their intelligence ends up framing the threat incorrectly. And it is allowing the white supremacists to get ahead.

Economy textbook dropping the insidious-ass line "crises are a recurring phenomenon that will strike the economy in regular intervals. That's how it's always been, and that's how it always will be"

Trying to draft some documentation for my self-hosted setup to try to update docs.joinmastodon.org/user/run .

(Right now, the options for self-hosting are "pay someone else to manage your server", "use a very specific service for 1-click installs", or "already be an experienced sysadmin". none of which I'd recommend for someone who wants to get started with self-hosting.)

re: incitement, death, IRL, long 

The perpetrators, who killed my friend's roommate and co-pastor, were all caught. It brought no peace, because the support those murderers had from dozens of other people meant never knowing who else might show up next.

So, I'm going to make this clear- every person who involved themselves with the insurrectionists of the Jan 6 coup must be doxxed, brought out into the daylight, and their networks of supporters exposed.

"Tao Yuanming spent much of his life in reclusion, living in the countryside, farming, reading, drinking wine, receiving the occasional guest, and writing poems in which he often reflected on the pleasures and difficulties of life, as well as his decision to withdraw from civil service." hell yeah man sign me up

you don't get a say in how to fight fascism if you willingly give platforms to fascists in the name of "debate"

"Do not run from the right-wing charge that you are giving people free stuff in order to gain their votes: actually, just give them stuff. People need stuff. They need it now; they needed it yesterday; they needed it ten years ago. It is not nefarious to make people’s lives better in the hope that they will keep you in power so that you can continue to make their lives better"

YEP. That's the shit. :blobchef: 👍

"This unfortunate distance between cause and effect opens up space for legitimate and manufactured doubt. It allows people to do selfish and dangerous things while telling themselves efficient market/moral hazard fairy tales so they can look themselves in the mirror." ‒ @pluralistic / pluralistic.net/2021/01/12/mas

tl;dr IPCC estimates of the economic impact of climate change are basically fraudulent or delusional because they were written by an idiot with a nobel prize (my summary, not the author's)

this only lends weight to my belief that neoclassical economics must be burnt to the ground

After 10 years living in France, I returned to China to sign some papers and I was locked up. For the next two years, I was systematically dehumanised, humiliated and brainwashed"
