You don't need a job to survive.

You need clean water, healthy food, and safe housing to survive.

Under capitalism, however, all of those things have associated price tags. Hence the popular myth of "needing" a job to survive.

Survival should not be a subscription service.

:anarchy:

if your antifa work consists of pasting stickers, tagging etc. please read this.

when I moved to Germany I was depressed, dysphoric, didn't speak the language, didn't leave my room, didn't make friends for >2 years. Trump had just been elected on racism against Latinx immigrants, and I had trauma from gender-based street violence in my country. Europe was having an immigration crisis, and parties like the AfD seemed on the rise. I felt as afraid in the streets as I learned to be in Brazil, scurrying through the evenings, heart thumping. Are neonazi emboldened by all this? Am I going to get beaten?

I was vaguely socialist but not politically aware. I was barely aware of what was "antifa" until Spencer got punched. It was a surprise for me to see antifa graffiti and "immigrants welcome" stickers almost every block, everywhere I went. It made me feel like there were people here who would stand by me (correctly :anarchismred:⁠).

if your antifa work consists of pasting stickers, tagging etc. it makes a lot of difference. you make people feel seen and cared about. with all my heart, thank you <3

Wer immer noch meint, dass wir Dinge über Reform reißen können, hat nicht verstanden.

Wir haben weniger als 10 Jahre – wer die Militanz immer noch verschreit *will* nicht verstehen.

Wir haben Jahrzehnte an Protesten, Demonstrationen, Petitionen und anderem Bullshit hinter uns und was hat es und beim Klima gebracht?

Das wir jetzt in der Werbung Greenwashing haben.

Wow, super. Bin total stolz auf euch. Können wir jetzt bitte anfangen, den Scheiß anzuzünden?

building the future is not a purely technical project, I don't even think it's a primarily technical project. it's a project of community and people, which is to say is inherently political. I think that word is a turn off to many programmers in the West who (due to Cold War era education I guess?) are effectively politically illiterate. and when you insist on being "apolitical" then all you can do is bolster the status quo. this is not how you make progress.

i still can't get over the fact that people bring rainbow flags with hammer and sickle on them to pride. why. that's not just a symbol for "yay communism" or "i don't like the usa/capitalism/everyone", it's specifically tied to the soviet union and other authoritarian regimes. and don't give me that shit about "but that's not it's origin!", that's the same argument fascists use for their confederate flags. it's a symbol of oppression for a lot of people. and yes, also for queer people.

Warn-Apps setzen eine mobile Internetverbindung voraus. Wenn diese zusammenbricht (was im Katastrophenfall ja nicht unwahrscheinlich ist) , warnt keine Warn-App, egal wie gut sie gemacht ist oder sogar OpenSource ist...

A cis friend in Scottand just phoned and reported they were walking with a cis mate when they unexpectedly saw a tiny terf protest in the city centre.
The terfs were not paying any attention at all to the banners they'd hung everywhere, so my friend quietly removed *all* of them and binned them except for one.

This is the kind of cis allyship I want to see more of in the world.

Ich wünsche @Erdrandbewohner und @Thalestria alles Gute und dass ihr euch jetzt erstmal gut erholen könnt :).
