FFS can people stop putting all community information on goddamned facebook??!
After repeal the 8th it looked like things were on the up, but... A man running for US congress is openly calling for women to be classed as property, and for men to be legally allowed to inflict horrific violence on women and children.
It seems like 4chan really isn't a joke because these views are a clone of the incel right-wing views there.
Surely this should be legally classed as hate speech, and this man should be gaoled instead of running for office.
A massive study just published in Science has underlined just how huge the environmental impact of meat/dairy consumption is. Going #vegan is far and away the single biggest thing we can do to help the environment - it fights #ClimateChange, #WaterWaste, #deforestation, #extinction, #pollution, and more.
18% of global calories, but 83% of land usage. If we want to feed everyone, this tremendously bad land management and capitalist profit prioritisation needs to change.
What's the chance that bullshit #protectionism like this from the states will actually result in "western" countries waging war against each other?
I realise we've been waging war-by-proxy with powerful nations for quite some time, but the US pulling shit like this is terrifying.
It's very important to move to a bank that has committed to going #FossilFree
Even better if it's a co-op like #BankAustralia
"ANZ, CommBank, Westpac and NAB banks have provided direct project finance for 17 new fossil fuel projects since making commitments to the Paris target.
“Over their lifetimes, these projects are expected to enable 4.9bn tonnes of CO2, enough to cancel out Australia’s emissions reduction target more than five times over,” the report says."
Government by lot, similar to jury duty?
This is quite an interesting take on #statist societies with less inherent bias towards those that already hold power.
I don't doubt that we'd still be in a plutocracy, with the rich simply shifting tact to target those chosen for office, and the "experts" chosen by the rich to inform them, but still...
I'm finally back on GNU/Linux at work. It's like a breath of fresh air.
I forgot how much nicer it is than macOS. Never again.
Video Games Are Boring
I’m really glad I read this article. For a while now I’ve been feeling pretty bad about video games, and started to wonder if I still liked them. This article pointed out why and made me feel a lot better!
I hope I can make games that are interesting, positive and caring. ♥
I'm often at the receiving end of angst about the business model funding #Firefox.
They do need to FUND the underlying web engines #Gecko & #Servo. Mozillians argue about implementations behind the scenes more than you do here. Why do you think we have such strong participation guidelines?
Go for a fork that resonates if you need. Waterfox, IceFox, there's loads! FOSS FTW!!
But consider donating to Mozilla and help support the only TRUE alternative to Google's "Blink" and Apple's "WebKit".
Blink web engine's Google employ over 40,000 staff in 70 offices with an annual turnover of almost 110 Billion USD.
WebKit web engine's Apple employ almost 125,000 staff with annuals of ~230 Billion USD.
Gecko/Servo's Mozilla employ ~1,200 mostly remote staff with annuals of ~500 Million.
It's a sad day for Australian politics.
It is really disappointing that in the push for mainstream acceptability, centrists like Di Natale have sidelined #EcoSocialist ideals.
I hope we socialist members/volunteers can still push the party to strive for justice.
