the deepest level of hell is reserved for the liberals who blame the people of West Virginia for the fact their state is owned by coal baron capitalists (who have used literal military force, on many occasions, to keep it that way). alongside those coal barons.
per Jacobin on birdsite, apparently the teachers in the West Virgina just voted to occupy the capitol building until their demands are met!!!

An underrated aspect of depression is that, if you have good days and bad days, your bad days just eat into your good days. Like you just generate this labor deficit for yourself and end up spending your "good" productive time doing dishes and cleaning up after yourself. For people who have their depression in a manageable place, that's something you deal with. But for people just getting out of a deep depression it highlights how many different layers of support you really need to get there.

important long-ish quote about advertising Show more
"People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.
You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.
Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs."

I used to think that I needed more happy people in my life to balance out my depression, but I've come to realize what I actually need are more KIND people. Not just kind to me. I need to see more people being good to each other. I think we all do.
As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, "Take this and ｃｏｎｓｕｍｅ it, for this is my ｃｏｎｔｅｎｔ."
Wishful thinking re: tech regulation Show more
It would be great if there were some law prohibiting tech companies from certain forms of "locking users in" to their products
Like, if you sell an app that uses a proprietary file format, you are compelled by law to disclose the schema for parsing it
Or if you run some kind of social media, you're required by law to provide a means of exporting your entire social media graph (connexions, posts, etc) that can be readable by other software
