The colonizers really revolted against the British over taxes, but here we are being heavily taxed and seeing it line the pockets of the elite and never seeing those tax dollars coming back to us...

Iโ€™ve seen my governors house he is sitting PRETTY while I live in 325 sq ft and canโ€™t buy groceries and heโ€™s got the audacity to not extend the eviction moratorium and freeze unemployment checks like excuse me...

Why do stores gotta make the packaging so big for goods that are small like excuse me thatโ€™s so bad for the environment... and I was tryin to redistribute those goods.๐Ÿ’€

It is my expert opinion that anyone who acquires goods legally is a sucker.

you don't need a specific reason to not approve a follow. Someone's energy doesn't feel right sure go ahead. No pronouns in bio, sure. whatever reason you want is valid because no one is owed access to you.

โ€œBut the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work. Weโ€™ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we donโ€™t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.โ€

@hot_hokte_shit witchcraft is culturally important to so many communities. but so much of this new age shit is is must appropriation. i see folks who think theyโ€™ve filtered it out but havenโ€™t. quit using shit that isnโ€™t for you. goyim leave Kabbalah alone. itโ€™s not for you. be careful with North American cedar itโ€™s open but sacred to a lot of Indigenous nations here. do your thing but do your research first.

is all witchcraft inherently antisemitic? no. is all witchcraft inherently racist? no. but some of yโ€™all are toeing the line in your practice and it shows. Lilith is not your goddess. not Indigenous? smudging & white sage are not for you. donโ€™t fuck with voodoo & hoodoo like itโ€™s some free for all. Astrology has Jewish roots. and just.... dump your Wiccan books. it was founded in the 50s by a white man who patch-worked other cultures together. you canโ€™t trust books about Wicca.

Uhhh, fascist Alex Jones is on mastodon.

Guessing fediverse admins may want to block that instance (it calls itself "The pro-liberty social network" which is fash speak)

Just a heads up to anyone who isn't a fascist lol

@sofrita He just like having names, doesn't actually care what they mean. Except for the one that fits, facism. Because his handlers tell him it's not a nice thing.

Does anyone else have seemingly strange habits/mindsets stemming from financial instability and/or food insecurity? I just wanna not feel alone on this

Show thread

I have a habit of not eating food to the point where itโ€™ll go bad (and it makes me feel like absolute shit), because I have this complex where I get anxious and think that if I eat food I wonโ€™t have any later and who knows if Iโ€™ll be able to afford food later, but last night I came to the realization that in order to not have food I have to like eat it first. Which sounds like a weird realization, but capitalism and a life of financial instability and food insecurity really has fucked me up.

Request for money, unsafe housing 

Please boost and donate if you can! This is for someone very close to me who is living in a house that is literally falling apart, and I really want them to be able to find new housing (or at least a new car, so they have more job options that pay better and could make affording housing easier) as soon as possible:

Every little bit helps!

Trumpie at this weeks standout was going off saying they were an intellectual, we were all sheep, and that none of us knew what communism really was. I asked them to define communism if Iโ€™ve been lead astray. They really said, โ€œYou, you are the definition of communism.โ€ ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€
Hello nice to meet yโ€™all I am communism.
