I don't want websites and the companies that own them to manipulate me into staying longer. I don't want them actively attempting to exploit weaknesses in my brain. I don't want to be controlled.

I just want to have interests. And I just want to live a humble life. And I want to make sure that those around me are happy and healthy.

This "value"-hungry network of companies have to be stopped.

You absolutely do not need to start selling crypto art. Seriously.

Being naive about the ecological impact of this stupid scheme is one thing. But once you know how it works, if you are still participating, you're a terrible person.

there's a middle ground between "Linux as a personality" and " it doesn't matter at all who controls the future of computing". be careful not to react against one so hard that you slide right into the other.

uspol meta, death of a bigot, rude and sweary 

i'm SO fucking tired of mainstream-liberal handwringing like "oh he had a family," "don't speak ill of the dead," etc.

the man's career was literally spreading bigotry over the radio, he didn't have children and was divorced three times. fuck his dead monstrous ass, and whoever's sad about it? fuck them too

yeah i'm conservative. I like to ~conserve~ brain cells by refusing to educate myself about anything
