It still baffles my mind that the socialist standpoint of "if we have enough resources to house and feed everyone, we should," is considered radical.

One of the things I'm looking forward to is that the next world will be slower. We may lose conveniences like 24 hour supermarkets and next day delivery on anything. But we will have time. Time to make and eat good food. time to connect with those who grow our food and make our products. Time to slow down and smell the flowers. Time to look at the sunset. Time to stop and help. Time to be ourselves. Time to see the world as it is, and not as the network of symbols. Time to live

The revolution isn’t being televised. Media uninterested in protest movements around the world.

This is very surprising. No one could have ever guessed this would happen in a billion years.

I just got my cards in!!!

So I work the security gate for a gated community, and there's one gate that all of the contractors are supposed to go through. When I'm taking IDs at that gate I get a lot of passports or foreign drivers licenses, because of course these rich hypocritical fucks only hire cheap undocumented laborers, and so I had these printed to covertly hand back with their ID. The front has info for the local rapid response group that I'm a part of (how to report ICE activity/ask for help, stay updated on where ICE is, and volunteer with us), and the back has a "know your rights" that I copied over from the ACLU

I was originally going to just get 100, but 250 was only like 20 cents more so I went for that. I'll have some with me at work every day, keep some in my wallet, and drop off a bunch at the Free Store when it's open again

Thank you to @GreenandBlack for doing the Spanish translation on the front! :ecoanarchism_heart:

It's been interesting to watch capitalism slowly doing away with private property. Most commercial software is moving towards subscriptions, devices are locked from their users, cars can only be serviced by authorized dealers. Nobody actually owns anything, they just rent it.
