@orbifx "Fixing things is often free" venant d'un site qui vend les outils de réparation, il fallait l'oser :)
A part ça, je suis bien d'accord avec eux.
@orbifx There are some good thoughts here, but coming from a private, profit-making corporation this seems rather obviously self-serving.
If it's serving the greater good, what does it matter if it serves them too?
@orbifx I guess I'm not willing to accept the message "it's for the greater good" without considering the source - a multi-million-dollar corporation with a vested interested in making repairs.
@orbifx Counterpoint: owning things is bad, and so is having to learn all the skills needed to run a technological civilisation for yourself. Fix things for other people if you enjoy it. If you don’t, then find another skill and offer that.
Indeed it does.
So not junk :)
@nepfag you can't _fix_ that 😅 Let it pass.
@orbifx Say what you will about USSR, but back then in Russia all electronics came with schematics as a part of usual paperwork, exactly to make repair easier.
@orbifx well, what about fixing democraties?
@orbifx still, maybe it's better that nobody "own" democracy ^^
@LPS regulation here would be nice, but kinda hard to implement. As far as ideals go, I prefer aiming for people's awakened thinking.
@orbifx I'm not quite so optimistic ... I think most people operate on a more instinctual level and behaviour changes due to external factors. Basically if it's cold you put on a coat, too warm take it off. By passing local bylaws that prohibit the use of or taxing single use products, businesses will simply go the next available/cheaper option. Which if you do it right would be reusables or recycled products.
But entropy causes chaos and one must have chaos still to give birth to a dancing star
