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.

Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

My god, look at this absolutely lovely* Venn diagram showing the overlap (and non-overlap) of characters supported by various popular computing systems in 1972. Notably, the ¢ symbol is supported in IBM's EBCDIC but not in anything else. (ASCII here means what we now think of as 7-bit ASCII, only the first 128 ASCII codes. 256-character ASCII wouldn't be formally standardized until 1987 in ISO 8859!)
