Milarepa is/was one of the foremost tantric practitioners in the Tibetan buddhist tradition.

Here is an excerpt of his biography showing his radical - for the time at least - inclusion of women on the path to enlightenment:

For decades, the number of women studying computer science was growing faster than the number of men. But in 1984, something changed. The percentage of women in computer science flattened, and then plunged.

What happened?

Like, okay, Data's face pasted over Zuck's face, hilarious - except that Data is a good person and a relatable character for a lot of good people out there. You're literally making Zuck look *better* by comparing him to Data? If you want to be mean to him you have to paste on the face of someone *bad*, no? Data is awesome.

When it comes to communicating communist ideas I feel like it'd be more effective if instead of saying "private property" we said "remote ownership" or "ownership on paper" or "economic property" or "corporate property" or "for-profit property"

Cuz like what we mean is "you can't own a house you don't live in" "you can't own a business others work in" "You can't own land others live or work on"

And I think in the 21st century "private property" just doesn't evoke that meaning

@lyndsysimon @xeb Also there was an interesting essay recently you might be interested in, arguing for seperating the concepts of "epistemic bubble" -- not seeing ideas you disagree with -- vs. "echo chamber" -- refusing to consider ideas against your own -- and that they need to be approached and dealt with very differently.

Robert Bowman: We are not hated because we practice democracy, value freedom, or uphold human rights. We are hated because our government denies these things to people in Third World countries whose resources are coveted by our multinational corporations. That hatred we have sown has come back to haunt us in the form of terrorism and in the future, nuclear terrorism.

Finalised my military badge/patch for my MC's squad as part of my story project. I'm not sure how accurate this patch would be irl, but considering this story is based in a Science Fiction setting I think I can be granted some creative licence freedom ;D #mastoart #creativetoots #design
