it's not that tech is bad but that prevailing powers drive us to make bad tech and to use tech for bad things. it doesn't have to be like this any more than a factory has to disenfranchise workers. we can make good things. we can be good to each other.
later when the remains of the ISS knock their nascent space probes out of orbit, the squidpeople of earth come to regard their technological predecessor as "a menace long after death" while top squid officials are quoted as saying "what a fucking mess"
history, settler-colonialism, cannibalism, lol Oh No
so y'all know the donner party, that famous band of settlers that all fuckin ate each other in the woods in the winter that one time

TURNED DOWN IN FAVOR OF CANNIBALISM ..
the wel mel ti were justifiably horrified and decided to just leave them the hell alone, which: fair!!!

Rest in Power WIllem Van Spronsen
“Are we really willing to submit to laws regulating every little detail of our existence on this planet? Inane laws imposed by those who simultaneously allow and encourage the exploitation and despoiling of the planet and life upon it for the sake of “progress” and “growth” and a house of cards called “the economy.” There’s staggering change on the horizon; it would behoove us to take note and learn the skills, among them how best to use rainwater, to cope with the radically different world bearing down upon us. Regardless of silly laws and regulations.”
Will Van Spronsen was a 69 year old anarchist and antifascist, AKA the greatest ICE breaker who ever lived.
He was murdered yesterday morning by police whilst petrol bombing the deportation buses at a US concentration camp.
