watching st:ng now makes me honestly hungry for hopeful media. it’s easy to find apoc fic and “late late LATE capitalism” narratives but stories about FALGSC, stories of times and places and people outside of capitalism and the kyriarchy — it’s harder to find them. something something engineered ambient despair.
cast off nihilism! indulge the furthest reaches of possibility. scarcity is an inflicted myth ✊️

@garbados I often use this analogy when explaining proprietary vs. free software for non-tech people. "Imagine there was a magical machine that can replicate food endlessly. What do you think would happen? End of world hunger? Limitless food? No. Corporations attacking the machine on the grounds that 'it will drive restaurants out of business', 'think of the workers', etc. We have this magical machine today for software, books, music. Do we have limitless access to culture?"
