Consumerism has done this weird trick of pushing "convenience" as a kind of moral sentiment. It does not apply to "work" (or "labor" to those on the left) which is supposed to be non-fun but required.
The central idea seem to be that anything that is not one's "job" should involve as little effort as possible. Laziness is a virtue and anything that requires effort is dismissed as foolish, old-fashioned drudgery. But don't most rewarding things require effort?
If we want people to move away from corporate hegemony, we will also need to convince people that convenience is often not a virtue and that doing things the hard way can be fun, interesting and convivial (not to mention more sustainable, local and humane).

Everyone knows by now that you can fake a draft mode by composing a toot, setting its privacy to direct, not @-ing anyone, and clicking "toot!". Then delete+redraft later to edit it again and choose a more public privacy setting or @ someone.
Did you know that if you press reply while editing one of these and say "yes, discard", it will keep any images and image descriptions from the draft, and put them on the reply instead?

This is some serious neo-colonial bs. Who just goes into a poor community in a foreign country and cuts of their water ~for research~ ?!? @Claudia_Sahm said it best: economics is a disgrace. We can’t keep excusing racism and Western supremacy for the sake of research. https://twitter.com/joshbudlender/status/1292170843389386761
