Dont post your crimes just do it and dont talk

depol, uspol, abortion 

what a weird day. germany gets rid of §219a (prohibition on information about abortion) which is a great thing and the SCOTUS turns over Roe v. Wade which is not a great thing. congratulations to activists fighting for decades this side of the atlantic; strength, courage and perseverance to activists on the other side for the years to come

it's important for my own will to keep going to believe that one day these cretins will be dragged kicking and screaming from their mansions and gated communities and have to answer for all they've done.

if there can be any good in this may it be that pacifism and the belief that we just need to vote are now dead ideas.

Unser Markt ist saturiert. Alle Menschen in Deutschland haben was sie brauchen oder sich leisten können. Die Haupt-Funktion von Werbung ist daher, damit wir nutzbare Dinge wegwerfen um neue zu kaufen. Das ist nicht nur sozial ultra stressig: es ist eine Gefahr fürs Klima.

The transphobic 'groomers' talking point that is popular amongst hateful people right now reminds me very much of the 'Black men are coming to take your women and children' line ran by racists back in the 50s and 60s.

There is this idea in whiteness that people who are not white, cis, and straight have a fascination with influencing their population. This thought is just a projection because white people have brutally perfected these manipulation methods over centuries.

From what I can see, it's yet another example of white people being deathly afraid that we will enact the horrors that they've acted on us.

And a driving force in the culture of whiteness is the fear of consequences for their collective actions.

Cycling and walking are not inherently dangerous. All danger begins and ends with cars, all harm comes from cars, and policing the behaviour of pedestrians and cyclists is useless victim-blaming at best and wilful negligence at worst.

If you stop anywhere in a city and look around for five minutes, you realize cars take too much room, are too noisy and go way too fast. It does not matter where or when you read this.

Also, drivers look either grim, angry, bored or sad. Never happy, never serene, never at ease.

Statt #100Milliarden fürs Militär lieber 21 Mrd. für Digitalisierung in Schulen! Der Digitalpakt Schule (6,5 Mrd. €) ist viel zu klein. Auf 21 Mrd€ schätzt die GEW dafür den Investitionsbedarf der Schulen bis 2024. Weitere sinnvollere Investitionen: https://100mrd.de/

"And yet, if we are ever again to have a world fit and pleasant for little children, we are surely going to have to draw the line where it is _not_ easily drawn. We are going to have to learn to give up things that we have learned (in only a few years, after all) to 'need'. I am not an optimist; I am afraid that I won't live long enough to escape my bondage to the machines. Nevertheless, on every day left to me I will search my mind and circumstances for the means of escape. And I am not without hope. I knew a man who, in the age of chainsaws, went right on cutting his wood with a handsaw and an axe. He was a healthier and saner man than I am. I shall let his memory trouble my thoughts."

Dieser Thread macht sprachlos, also @OlafScholz macht sprachlos, der "Klimakanzler", da bleibt mir ein fettes WTF im Halse stecken. Seine Reaktion schockt genau so, wie der tosende Beifall der Kirchentagsbesucher:innen. Aber lest Luisas Analyse ganz ⬇️
RT @Luisamneubauer: OK WIR MÜSSEN DARÜBER SPRECHEN. Olaf #Scholz wurde mit der Klimakrise konfrontiert. Seine Reaktion macht sprachlos. Und wir sollten genau hingucken. Denn das spricht Bände über das, was wir vom Kanzler in der Klimakatastrophe erwarten müssen. THREAD:

"The innovation of Al/ML is its ability to “do” things without “doing” things because they were “done” without a “doer.” Proxy discrimination (or algorithmic pricing) has the same real effects of discrimination (or collusion) but without any explicit human decision being made. The effect still happens in the world, but nobody is responsible. Nobody did anything. Nobody knows for sure how it happened or who was affected. The designers and users are granted plausible deniability. Al as alibi."

I'm not here to work 40 hours a week to increase the GDP of the country or increase stock prices.

I'm here to spend nights staring at the 100 billion stars of the Milky Way. I'm here to watch thunderstorms unleash their majestic power. I'm here to watch sunsets and sunrises. I'm here to feel the cool breeze on a summer's day. I'm here to learn and to understand. I'm here as a way for the universe to contemplate itself.
