The tech industry is already dripping with politics, and libertarian-capitalism is reigning. This ideology promotes the mythical concept of "meritocracy" which is used excuse the marginalization of anyone who is not a 20-something cis-white hetero male, and actually leads to denial that it even does happen.

to the tune of willy wonka pure imagination:

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of pure capitalism
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your unregulated market

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The hyperloop of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around with neuralink
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world?
Just go to Mars

There is no
Life I know
To compare with pure capitalism
Living there
You'll be free
To become my serf

#TNG #TNGS1E03

Time for the first real episode of #GenerationQ

In this episode, we look at the pilot episode “Farpoint Station”, a 2-part episode that introduces us to the Next Generation crew and establishes some of the main themes of this series.
This episode is longer due to covering both parts of the episode (technically episodes 1&2)

I am starting a Star Trek: The Next Generation Podcast!
This will be a casual podcast with me and my brother in law. We have no experience podcasting so this is a learning experience for us. We will be looking at 1 episode of the show per podcast episode, mostly through a Critical Theory lens.
If you are interested, our first episode (intro) is posted here: archive.org/details/Generation and the RSS feed will be here: generationq.libsyn.com/rss
Reply to this post if you have feedback! #GenerationQ #TNG

My thoughts on the failure of Agile software development: wakingrufus.neocities.org/fail
Please give me feed back on this. I am constantly trying to synthesize new ideas into this.

I'm finally sitting down with Final Fantasy VII Remake #FFVIIR. Lots of chills during the opening sequence. It certainly looks gorgeous.

Places to rest include your own bed, and, of course, blue benches near vending machines #FFVIIR

Purism will allow bigoted content on their servers 

Purism has decided that they will explicitly allow bigoted content on their servers. For that reason I will not lift my ban on them, and I recommend that servers that have not blocked them yet do. I cannot in good conscious support their products if they will allow the spread of content that harms minorities.

Below is the conversation I had in their public Librem One room after they published their CoC.

I could use some help pinning down the exact terminology for my own personal ideology. I strongly believe in building a non-hierarchical society, but also, that some things need to be coordinated on a large scale to be effective, such as infrastructure and healthcare. Is there a name for this? Is further discussion needed?
