Just got on Mastodon. I think a decentralized service like this is very much needed, particularly in a society in which corporate policy has deeply influenced users' freedom to write. For those potentially interested in following, I'm a journalist, with a focus on South Asian ethnopolitical affairs. I write about aviation, urban development, feminism, leftism and a number of other things. I'd love recommendations of others to follow too!
@Agnostic_Indian @Deepsealioness @visvajit @Gargron there is no blanket ban on "advocating violence" on mastodon.social, and certainly not on my instance. the context is important, and it is absolutely ok to call for revolt against the ruling class, advocate for guillotining the rich, tell TERFs to shut up, and that sort of thing.
i do not know the politics of the situation you linked to, but if they are talking about throwing molotovs, i am gussing it is at an oppressor
American billionaires: 607
Americans in poverty: 38M
CEO/worker pay ratio: 278:1
Wealth of 3 richest Americans: $345B
Wealth of bottom 50%: $250B
Top 1% wealth since 1989: +$21T
Bottom 50% wealth since 1989: -$900B
The billionaire class is crushing everything in its path.
This is American Stats. The Indian situation is even more worse because of Corrupt Politicians & Corrupt LAW.
@Agnostic_Indian @ansugeisler @anna @Deepsealioness @visvajit @Gargron I am seeing only you are talkin of killing someone all the time. It's not a human fucking society or system when few have it all and the rest or most sleep hungry. That not government and governance. What is required is a proper taxing system to bridge the F'ing gap. The rich can still be rich, but, others don't die of hunger. That is government and governance. 31 Farmers in India committed suicide everyday u talk of killin
@anna Well I too feel like it sometimes. But that isn't the solution. We have to work in the present system while being realistic. So yes as @Human_Being said - upgrading taxation is just 1 of the many things which need to be done to bridge inequality. Also one should now view ALL of the wealth of the richest as locked up or consolidated. Some of it is used in creating more opportunities

@Agnostic_Indian @Theusualones @ansugeisler @anna @visvajit @Gargron @Dasbolshevik punch you are a delusional, the violence you say is perpetrated in real ground by oppressor , someone says an online comment fight them and your equality loving privileged Brian wakes up and tells you hey go and tell the oppressed to shut up . Hey what oppressor did or has been doing is okay, I will always support them and sympathise with them and will say am right , GTFO here
@Agnostic_Indian @Theusualones @ansugeisler @anna @visvajit @Gargron @Dasbolshevik you are defending nazis , who are systematically oppressing minorities. fFS nearly 1 million people in Kashmir have been cut off from India and the world for almost 100 days and you want them to protest peacefully when we sent the army to control dissent? Kashmir is the worlds largest militarised zone and we not only cut off all communications but also sent additional 40k troops
You imbecile, you just cut of all communications phone, Internet everything and put them under a curfew while the Indian state changed their status without discussing with them. The troops are there to ensure they don’t protest. Wtf democracy is that? Seriously something is so wrong with you
