Mastodon isn't Twitter. It doesn't behave like Twitter. You will be disappointed if you have actually entirely lost the ability to communicate without being triggered by the outrage algorithm. Don't bring that culture here, it's why we left earlier.

The timeline is linear. Follow people you ordinarily wouldn't. Utilise the followers only message feature when you want to avoid a potential pile on. Report UX issues in a polite way and they'll probably be fixed, because this isn't Twitter.

Child molestation is far too prevalent in society. The level of devastation it causes on a developing mind is hard to bear. There's so much evil in the world.

Your regular reminder that there are no gods, or there are a thoroughly disproportionate number of malevolent gods.

There are differences in the parties -- I don't think they're great differences, but they're real, and small differences in a system of great power can have enormous consequences.

Capitalism is a death cult that will make us go extinct if people don't start taking direct action against it.

Whether you're looking for a way out of the Gulag or just a plan B for the next time you land in Facebook jail, moving from one centralized social network to another won't do you much good. Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, MeWe—they all have the same fundamental flaw. A for-profit corporation sustained by ads will always put growth and engagement above all else, from privacy and mental health of individual users to social cohesion and political stability of entire countries.

@theruran If your biggest problem with Facebook and Google is how cozy they are with USG, you are not scared enough of them, not by a long shot. They both have already transcended subservience to national governments. So far, they succeeded in nudging US democracy towards a designation as flawed, and there is no reason to expect them to stop there and not fully supersede nation states with a corporate hierarchy.

Swift is about reinventing the wheel, but wrong

Just as I'm opposed to political fascism, I'm opposed to economic fascism. I think that until major institutions of society are under the popular control of participants and communities, it's pointless to talk about democracy.

Look when lisp implements a really good concurrency story, I'll consider it more than a weird cult of people who never had braces

That patriotism which tends toward unity without regard to liberty is an evil patriotism.

It's no wonder the U.S. wants backdoors into encryption so fucking bad. They had it once for half the world and now they want it again.
