If you think most of the USA is the β€œfirst world”... Ha, you’re in for a shock.

A quarter of the USA has long ago resigned into a material despair largely untouched by the perfunctory social services ever reamed out by budget shortfalls. Another half of the USA populace barely hang on to a livable facade under mountains of debt voodoo. All are about to be cast into the dark winter cold.

Landlords and money barons... These are vile demons from perdition. Rot them all.

This is why cyberpunk and such piss me off. There is nothing romantic about poverty. Nothing glorious about living on the street, making do with scraps. It’s fear and cold and your body ages at a rate which would ruin most who walk past to their Google bus ride home. You become hunted by vicious scum in or out of uniform. You futily try for a shred of dignity, while the mere days convert finding basic hygiene into improbable adventures.

trans woman asking for help due to bum foot 

I know what some have said about me. I wouldn’t come and ask if I didn’t need help. My foot has a nasty cut on it and it is, for whatever reason not closing. There are blood splotches everywhere I walk. I am asking your help for food and bandages and the like. Please. PayPal.me/foxyart #TransCrowdFund #transcrowdfunding

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

@sidd_harth0_5h4h ⭐ is the winner but only by sheer virtue of being vague enough to encompass an entire family of operating systems. The correct answer is FreeBSD

Politics, climate change, pessimism 

And it's not just right-wing authoritarianism we have to worry about. Left-wing authoritarianism is just as popular and just as bad. They just demonize or favor a different set of groups. And even though the Fediverse can spot a fascist a mile away, a tankie can be spewing tankie filth up and down their timeline and few notice, because they can't see past the fact that they believe in climate change and want to help the poor.

re: Politics, climate change, pessimism, uspol 

@garbados Experts of the past testified that Black people were less intelligent. Experts told us we should sterilize the mentally ill. A great many horrific acts in history have been supported by one form of "expert testimony" or another.

And even if they're right about the facts, they can't decide which trade offs are the right ones for society. They can't decide if it's worth jailing someone for not staying home or wearing a mask.
