@ente@chaos.social @webmind @strypey and yes, burnout is a huge problem. But poretty much unsolvable unless "our side" starts having enough resources to manage such campaigns not as emergencies...

If only we had popular organizations with big budgets that let people make it their job to participate in the political process and fight for us.

I bet many people wouldn't mind a government that does completely nothing.
A feature freeze of sorts.
No new law.
Everything keeps working as it was before.

Yeah, I know it wouldn't work long-term. But so often it seems that every time someone proposes a change to the law, someone takes it as an opportunity to inject their shitty article into it.

@Wolf480pl
I actually think there should be a "deterministic 'NO' party" whose program is literally to vote against *any* change to the status quo. A default to choose if every other party seems terrible, a force to to make the others have to be not terrible.
@webmind @rysiek @ente @strypey

@pesco @Wolf480pl @webmind @ente@chaos.social @strypey you're describing the conservative parties. That's where the name comes from.

And they're usually the worst. Blocking marriage equality, gender equality regulations, environmental regulations, etc etc.

Even in it's aout *preserving old business models* in the age of Internets. So conservatives are often the ones who are voting for , by and large.

@rysiek @pesco @webmind @ente @strypey

This is not what he's describing.

It's not about preserving the overall status quo, it's about paralyzing the parliment.
Therefore, the proposed party must vote "NO" in all circumstances.

@Wolf480pl @pesco @webmind @ente@chaos.social @strypey yes, but *by definition* this preserves old regulation. Like marriage inequality, like freedom to polute. There is literally no good reason to have a party like that. This will no achieve anything.

What we need are parties that vote sane. Not obstructionists.

@notclacke @strypey @ente@chaos.social @webmind @pesco @Wolf480pl in that case you would not have any environmental regulations. No marriage equality regulations.

Each mobile phone manufacturer would still create their own precious charger plug. Remember that fun?

We would not have Roam like at Home, which means I can use my Polish SIM card in the rest of EU without paying an arm and a leg.

@rysiek @Wolf480pl @pesco @webmind @ente @strypey

Charger plugs was already solved by China, before it entered EU legislation.

Roam like at Home would be missed. Obviously there are advantages and disadvantages to halting the process. An obstructionist party is for those who look at the balance of outcomes and considers it more negative than positive.
