for real, sometimes I sound cynical but I want to be clear: the goal is a world where everyone gets to feel loved and live a fulfilling life of their choice. no cops. no bosses. no landlords. no borders. just people and love and the whole green earth

this and NOTHING less

if you think it sounds sappy or impossible, that's the cop in your head. it's more than possible, it's inevitable. you can see it peeking through, even now. you can meet the people building it

you can BE one of those people

I want to use Pleroma because it's technically superior but I don't want to be associated with the kind of person who uses Pleroma

Thoughts on security of needs 

Security of needs is where most people who experience poverty in the first world are going to see it. It might be considered the second order of poverty. If a person is at risk of being evicted, that is poverty. If a person is not actively starving, but goes hungry regularly, that's still poverty. Functionally, people in the second order of poverty are a missed paycheck away from the first order of poverty.

We've had literal decades of far too much dystopian fiction featuring police dressed in body armour, wearing masks, and brutalising people. This is universally depicted as not a good thing. You'd think more people would maybe get the hint that when the actual police are so frequently like this, they aren't a good thing either.

nyc protests, important, pls boost+++ 

apparently nypd may be bringing sonic cannons out today so just in case:
GET EAR PROTECTION
LRAD decibel levels range from 140 and 150+ dB which is way more than enough to cause permanent damage
i cant stress this enough: BRING EAR PROTECTION AND STAY OUT OF RANGE OF THOSE THINGS

Users vs programmers 

This idea that some people are suited to programming and some aren't is bullshit. But the computers I had as a kid booted into BASIC or were a single command away from it, literally inviting me to program them. My elementary school also taught me BASIC and Logo in third grade. Nowadays I don't think programming gets taught until high school, if at all. And I imagine they teach some garbage language like Javascript, C++, or Java most of the time.

Users vs programmers 

In TRON, the programs worship their creators, god-like beings called users. Not programmers, users. In 1982, when it came out, there wasn't a real distinction between users and programmers.

My mother in law learned to program at HP. She wasn't hired as a programmer. They just asked who was interested in learning. No prerequisites.
