- I also serve our English masters, I keep their precious trains running
- Are you happy keeping their trains running?
- Happy? I don't know, but I'm good at it.
- I dream of hunting in this jungle of metal and asphalt. I imagine my true form leaping from beam to ledge to terrace roof until I am at the top of this island. Until I can growl in the faces of all the men who believe they can own me.

We freed the core protocols of networking and the source code of a large chunk of operating systems and applications over 20 years ago. Yet we failed to break free from the gravity of the app, and now we're back on a worst-of-1980s-cyberpunk-future freefall back into the event horizon of permanent neofeudal corporate systems lock-in.

Something went wrong in our calculations about what "freedom" is and how to get there.

We gotta break away somehow before it all collapses into Actual Fascism 2.0

Kinda fucked up that we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine and the machine is bleeding to death.

Petrol bombs and barricades - Anything to have our say. Consequence of no choice at all - Empires rise and empires fall. It’s time to flip some coins and it’s time to turn some tables. [...]
Sabotage will set us free. Throw a rock in the machine.

tbh I don't want this nuclear family shit at all, if I'm gonna have a family I want to have a dense community of people immediately near me who are as responsible for my family's well being as I am, and vice versa

If your experience does not suit you, mod it. Mod your games, mod your OS, mod your hardware, mod yourself.

As long as you're not in a fair competition, cheat. Cheat if it's an unfair competition. Hack everything, level the playing field.

Remove unwanted mechanics, adjust difficulty, change your perceptions, change your experience. Online, in games, in meatspace. You are the final arbiter in what you experience.

Fuck anyone who claims this is wrong or cheapens an experience.

Countries blocking lifting of patents on life saving vaccine patents are the true Axis of Evil. As the pandemic continues to ravage the world, new and deadlier variants of covid are emerging. Protecting IP protection over millions of lives is ghoulish.

“Surveillance capitalism” isn’t a corruption of (an otherwise virtuous) capitalism. It is a precise means of describing modern-day capitalism. Opposing it doesn’t mean simply opposing surveillance, it means opposing capitalism.

One take: "The development of commons-public partnerships as an alternative to the established public-private, following the Preston and Evergreen models, with DisCOs facilitating:

a. Municipal service provision for local economies.
b. FLOSS-built and open licensed, common-pool civic knowledge resources.
c. Practical workplace education on feminist economics, the commons, decentralized technology and the ethical market sectors offered by participating DisCOs."

Seriously, that's all you've got? We can't end #VaccineApartheid and save the 2.5b unvaccinated people and forestall a species-destroying supervariant because it might lead to...a cure for cancer and heart disease?
