Deutschland du mieses Stück Scheiße!

Die #Taliban überrennen #Afghanistan und die Heuchler*innen, die vor 2 Monaten noch gegen die Evakuierung der Ortskräfte gestimmt haben, versuchen nun sich zu profilieren.
Frauen und Mädchen, flinta* und Queers werden massakriert, Journalist*innen, Helfer*innen, alle Personen, die nicht ihrem islamistischen Wahn entsprechen und der Westen zuckt die Schultern und fragt sich wie das nur passieren konnte.
Ihr widert mich an!

Shame. 😔

Shame is what I expect to grow day by day for every FOSS project staying on Microsoft services. It's like environment protection projects holding meetings on an oil-rig.

Sounds crazy? Then try adding bug reports, feature requests or comments to projects on github without a Microsoft account – any you'll see the insanity of the situation.

The internet will let you search for the most absurd idea you can come up with, quickly have it validated, and get connected with a bubble of people who believe it.

We have tribes with their own competing narratives of how the world works as opposed to a single shared reality.

We must constantly reexamine our theory of the world and adjust it based on how well it matches what we observe. When our model lacks predictive power then we our understanding of the world becomes divorced from reality.
