I figure creating a pre-made proposal format for groups would be like convenient possibly?
How 'not quite rightly' am I doing this so far? Feels a little corny, but I'm committing to the bit. @switchingsoftware

I'm creating a presentation today for a direct action group I just joined about why moving everything to software is important. Any on what to include? Resources on convincing and educational materials that aren't scary and intimidating to people? I'm talking about using instead of Zoom and Meet /#Rocket chat and instead of slack / instead of Gmail. The more specific the better!

with the eviction crisis starting I think it's worth while to understand the current landscape of housing in the US and what ways we can get to the dream of abolishing the housing market. We need more writing on direct action toward meeting that goal and also an understanding of what a left alternative could look like.

I think this policy proposal document is helpful to gain a better understanding of the battle to come:

Up today on Listen Left is Pierre Joseph Proudhon’s What is Property ***link in bio***

“Before our white brothers came to civilize us we had no jails. Therefore we had no criminals. You can’t have criminals without a jail. We had no locks or keys, and so we had no thieves. If a man was so poor that he had no horse, tipi or blanket, someone gave him these things. We were to uncivilized to set much value on personal belongings. We wanted to have things only in order to give them away. We had no money, and therefore a man’s worth couldn’t be measured by it. We had no written law, no attorneys or politicians, therefore we couldn’t cheat. We really were in a bad way before the white men came, and I don’t know how we managed to get along without these basic things which, we are told, are absolutely necessary to make a civilized society.”

none of my criticism of the left should be read as an endorsement of anything even vaguely centrist or right-wing, it should be read as me asking parts of the left that haven't thought through a particular stance to think through it and move further left by doing so

This is me installing a new desktop environment, fucking it up and reformatting my drive three times because i didnt know that a configuration file is just a file that configures holy fuck.

On November 27, 1884—Thanksgiving Day—anarchists in the United States marched with the black flag for the first time, according to the anarchist paper The Alarm, in a demonstration protesting poverty and explicitly calling for the forcible abolition of property and wage labor. 🏴

K so fumbling around with sudo apts and bash this and thats on linux after a lifetime on windows is like... hard? But also really feels good to look up ten things, learn twelve things, give up, try one more thing and then finally get a brightness slider. Next imma try to make it work with chron to act like flux because redshift isnt dark enough.

Fuck this. I'm moving to . Im scared but whatever. Time to put my mouse where my mouth is. Any would be appreciated.

@Anstapa What are your thoughts on Angela's new video? I hate i missed the live chats but i hit up the comments section for sure.
