Stop quote tweeting The Hill. Their whole model is distributing right wing conspiracies through Twitter dunks

In 2020 we will see another movement of Geist, as Trump — who inherited the Hegelian world-spirit in 2016 — is re-integrated into, and revealed to be just another moment in, the Kanye West–Taylor Swift dialectic that represented the previous phase of history.

Terminator isnʼt really about robots. Hell, /robots/ arenʼt really about robots. Robots (and Terminator) are about class struggle, psychopathy, and human objectification.

This is the most cyberpunk thing I've seen for a while: Chilean protesters using lasers to take down a drone.

Jimmy Walesʼs WikiTribune is transforming into a new social network called WT:Social. Does anyone know if it will be compatible with the Fediverse?

For all the talk about "extraordinaire elite generosity", it's important to keep in mind the reality of US billionaires philanthropy:
