#HealingJustice: "a #network of peers, patients or practitioners, can have a substantial impact and save lives if held within an empowering, #anticapitalist context that enables knowledge and skill sharing.
..a radical approach to emotional wellness that offers opportunities for a new kind of organizing that centers on individual recovery while creating #collectiveknowledge."
"Without local #relationships, it’s all abstract theory"
"We build mobile operating systems, apps and code that put users’ privacy first before profit.
Did you know your smartphone may be harvesting your data all day long, capturing with great detail where you are, who you are and what you’re doing 24/7?
Time to escape from Mobile #Surveillance!
"in this essay I look at the politics of the commons from a feminist perspective where “feminist” refers to a standpoint shaped by the struggle against sexual discrimination and over reproductive work... This intervention is necessary, in my view, to better define this politics and clarify the conditions under which the principle of the common/s can become the foundation of an anti-capitalist program."
Idiots don't use #GPL then complain when their code is stolen, push #media to give a bleak idea of the #commons. You can't have #open core and exist in the same monopolistic #business model as proprietary. #Wordpress, #drupal, #magento - et all #CMS still have a thriving ecosystem where many startups companies exist to provide services over a commons resource
"On behalf of #Wikimedia Deutschland we drafted a concept for an #Elearning course "Prepare Your #datasets for #Commons" on how to bulk upload images AND metadata to Wikimedia Commons for cultural heritage institutions. Watch our documentary to get an idea what we are up to and let us know, what you think."
"There was another kind of disintegration besides that of traditional #ethics.
In a world which could not be grasped as a whole, and where there were no universally shared values, most people clung to the particular niche to which they were most committed: their #job or #profession.
They treated their work as a post-religious calling, ‘an absolute end in itself’, and if the modern ‘ethic’ or ‘spirit’ had an ultimate foundation, this was it."
"How do we treat #trauma? All the treatments we have treat the symtoms of trauma, but not the trauma itself.. We have all these #maintenance patients, who their whole lives are hosts of symtom drugs only. Like with parecetamol.. we are treating their temperature, we are not killing the bug. Where is the #psychiatric #antibiotic?"
"That the oldest #dictionary publisher in the United States has added its imprimatur to this meaning of the pronoun could be seen as a powerful statement about evolving understandings of #gender #identity.
Or it could be seen as something much more elementary: a reflection of #changingtimes."
"#GenZ-ers & #millennials have been called lazy and entitled. Are they the first to understand the proper role of #work in life?
More of them expect and demand flexibility—paid leave for a new baby, and generous vacation time, along with daily things, like the ability to work remotely, come in late or leave early, or make time for exercise or meditation. The rest of their lives happens on their phones, not tied to a certain place or time—why should work be any different?"
"The #Luddites were heroic figures and acute #technological #thinkers. They smashed textile machinery in 19th-century England because they had the capacity to perceive technology “in the present tense”, in the words of the historian David F Noble. They didn’t wait patiently for the glorious future promised by the gospel of progress. They saw what certain machines were doing to them in the present tense – endangering their livelihoods – and dismantled them."
The Insurgent Power of the #Commons.
"Any emancipation from the existing system must honor #freedom in the widest human sense, not just libertarian economic freedom of the isolated individual. It must put #fairness, mutually agreed upon, at the center of any system of provisioning and #governance. And it must recognize our existence as living beings on an Earth that is itself #alive".
#Psychedelics unlock the #overvieweffect: "a breakthrough shift in perspective catalysed by the perception of the #unity & #interconnectedness of life on Earth, often resulting in a strong desire to protect the planet."
Piketty's thesis: it's not enough to use #class to understand how people vote -- you also have to take account of peoples' beliefs about class (a neat way of resolving the tension between traditional left class analysis and contemporary #identitarian theories of leftist politics)."
Davis unveils between the respective life’s work and esoteric, drug-aided explorations of #TerenceMcKenna, #RobertAntonWilson, and #PhillipKDick. These 3 men were all, in their own unique ways, #magicians, #shamans, and #spiritualists who used the tools at their disposal to forge some kind of new and desperately-needed mystical tradition in the midst of the dark triumph of the Western world’s rationalism.
While that option might be “excellent” for users, it would not be for Instagram, which has more to gain in training its users to #fetishize its algorithm. Instagram wants to guarantee its advertisers that certain kinds of “best” content get seen the most."
"People don't actually want #television performance anymore... I know we all love TV, we all love watching our #Netflix instead of sleeping—which is really stupid, by the way.. Your own dreams are much more interesting than whatever they put on Netflix.. but that's another point.
We can now reflect on Nakamoto’s invention with the benefit of a decade of hindsight.
Echoing Franklin, we now have a blockchain, if we can keep it.
[In the end..] the greatest challenge in such a process is the #people who carry it out."
"you will find no images of catastrophe in Anastasia Samoylova’s “#FloodZone.” She is looking for other things, the subtler signs of what awaits the populations that cluster along shorelines. What is it to live day by day on a climatic knife’s edge? What psychological state does it demand? #Hurricanes are sudden and violent; #sealevelrise is insidious and creeping. The low-level dread of slow change, and the shock of sudden extremes. #Climate and #weather.
"This year — 2019 — I would encourage everyone using #socialmedia to spend some time understanding their inherent nature. You may think you are being funny, insightful, or witty, but the #medium is the #message. What you say in your mind is probably not what I read in your tweet."
all masculinity is not bad! masculinity is not inherently bad! masculinity is valid!!
there are people -- cis, trans, and otherwise -- who are doing masculinity SO RIGHT. and i love them.
they will be the ones that heal it. encourage them. you don't have to be masculine to help. and never discourage someone from being who they are.
if masculinity is not for you, don't shit on it. there are masculine people trying to live their lives.
