US fascism 

I don't know what it is going to take to get people in the streets, but I fear it will be too late by then. Maybe I'm naive to think it could be stopped with a something like a general strike.

Concentration camps, passport denials, freezing assets, nazi flags being waved in the streets and somehow, still, people are waiting for the 'real' fascism to start to do something about it.

Anarchist spaces have long harbored abusive people. Some of this is dysfunction, the folly of people with little at stake believing that all others can take care of themselves just as they can. Individuals, not community, is where they believe power rests.

When done well, the community is engaged, aware, and open about the presence of these people. This is not the whispered clue about the missing stair, but active engagement in the community's health, which implies the health of its members.

@some_qualia True

Worked with violent people myself long ago (believe it or not they were group home counselors for "emotionally disturbed adolescents") and they would lie through their teeth after reporting them for their actions. Lie about what they did then make up smears and lies about you, the person who reported the violence.

(folks, having worked with violent people: they lie. If someone is willing to send an anonymous threatening email, all other info in the email is suspect)

Internet culture as such a weird combination of "everything is flawlessly recorded forever" and "you just had to be there". Everything is simultaneously permanent and ephemeral. We're drowning in records that have no context, and context that has no records

friendly reminder:

if you're at home and you're tired you can go to bed

it's ok

that thing you're working on/looking at/watching/whatever will not go anywhere, and it'll actually probably go better after some sleep attempting

US fascism 

If you're waiting for a clear marker dividing the moment before and after the US went full fascist, you'll be waiting in a camp yourself. Fascism creeps in. If you aren't fighting it yet, and aren't speaking out about it yet, get with the program.

Techbros deprofessionalized moderation and we're all paying for it. Moderation should be as good of a job as SWE - it's just as hard and important (I've been both)

@mooncalf Should I watch The Red Shoes again? Yes.

Should I actually get out of bed, have breakfast and take my meds? Also, yes.

One of my favourite vintage bloggers is working a Red Shoes aesthetic at the moment and I’m extremely here for it.

@mooncalf Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten my last password change anyway. This is good.

Tempted to go back onto Twitter to check if my account has actually been deleted (I haven’t logged back in after deactivating for almost 2 months now), but I actually think I’m fine with just assuming it’s been done.

I’ve quarantined myself pretty effectively, and haven’t clicked on any links that would take me back to the site. I have to be tough on myself in the early stages, and appreciate how much time I’ve reclaimed for myself by being away.
