Relationship between ideals and reality or praxis is not one of representation or reflection, but one of giving useful distinctions in relation to a specific praxis or reality, and thus causing harmony among diverse praxises and multitude. For example, the distinction between oppressed and oppressors is a useful distinction only if understood through ideal of equality, in it's lack. But oppressors and oppressed are nominal groups and their relationship to material reality is fluent. A group is not representation or reflection of idea of oppressor, a group falls into category of oppressors by the fact that they oppress, create inequality and prisons/farms. So only through praxis of liberation, establishment of equality and abolishing of the system complex of different inequalities (whom we are immanently a part of) we understand who is the oppressor. Nominal ideals give harmony to praxis, praxis makes sense of nominal ideals. Logical consistency is irrelevent to political ideals, since logic is representational. Ideals aren't.

subreddit drama+, nazis getting wrecked Show more
Daily reminder that the subreddit for the hilariously named "Proud Boys" nazi group was raided and successfully entirely taken over by transmasculine and non-binary resistance, who now use /r/proudboys to post about how proud they are to be boys.
Privacy is an upper class luxury. You need to have both technical knowledge and a bunch of resources in order to afford it. You can go and shout about privacy all you want and the evils of surveillance capitalism but this won't matter a bit so long wage slavery and capitalism itself is a thing.
Go ahead and be 'private' in your luxury home, with your personal home server and mobile phone that costs more than a months wage in countries that capitalism have wrecked.

I've updated my Tor-ified home network article to reflect the pf rules I use in production: https://github.com/lattera/articles/blob/master/infosec/tor/2017-01-14_torified_home/article.md
Please note that while the article talks mainly about doing the setup on an RPI3, the setup can be duplicated on any hardware. I now have it working on an APU2c4, with WPA2-based wireless AP capabilities.
