Reading Anarcho-Syndicalism: Theory and Practice has re-affirmed my commitment to anarchism.

I don't have to be a capitalist to launch the mesh network of my dreams, my cybernetic pet project. I can make a worker-owned cooperative and build dual power.

It has been very confusing doing business development. I am rubbing shoulders with telco veterans and government officials. Not my first dive into the system, but definitely the deepest and highest I've been. My personal principles and identity have felt compromised.

But it don't have to be that way. I have to sell out, true. But I can sell out to a public community, instead of private investors. Its not a pedantic nuance, its a gaping chasm that is worlds apart.

Forever grateful to the government for radicalizing me. Forever grateful to ecosteader and @indie for welcoming me to the fediverse.

But I'm not really a green thumb. I'm a black heart. And I need to be with my people.

Y'all keep growing.
I'll keep building.

so glad I picked up Rudolf Rocker's Anarcho-Syndicalism: Theory and Practice. This whole time I've been worried I'm falling into anarcho-capitalism. Nno. Its all about the worker owned cooperatives. Anti alienation. Earth defense force. Call me Firewall again. LETS GO SOMEWHERE NEW.

Lived in Oregon off and on for 20+ years, and have experienced many kinds of rainfall: gentle. sullen. pattery. steady. playful. lazy. Barely discernible pinprick microdroplets to name a few ... but nothing compared to how the sky opened up and punctuated the evening last night.

In an inundation of purification, the rain opened up as if from a faucet, and washed volumes of joy over the shimmery streets and sidewalks shortly after the colonists' idols were from their statue posts near Park Blocks in downtown .

Happened to walk by the area shortly after they came down.

Vandalism it is not. The indigenous human bodies who have endured 500+ years of vandalism against their tribes, nations, and communities simply want the average American to wake up to what vandalism really is!

Carving up sacred mountains with the faces of hideous white dudes. Burning down villages. Kidnapping women and performing invasive surgeries on them. Bulldozing sacred burial sites for oil and gas pipelines? THOSE are a more proper definition of vandalism.

The statues were put there to make you forget the centuries genocide, because the average American is so brainwashed by romanticized Euro-centric angle of "American" history.

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day. It's time you take a closer look at how the sinister demon of colonialism has infected your local lands, and time to do something about it. It's not surprising that this has finally happened.

Justice for Native peoples isn't going to be pretty or fit in the Realtors' and Landlords' plan to upsell a neighborhood with hipster rents. But is 100 percent necessary to even begin to get close to the truth of the continent on which flag-waving Americans want to live.

US Imperialism 

The fact that "school-to-prison pipeline" is evenly a commonly debated term in our governments, schools, and so-called halls of justice is deeply disturbing... but somehow normalized.

Federated networks need to step it up if they are going to compete with centralized networks.

I was just listening to Craig Childs on the Conversations podcast and they dropped the cool phrase "Ecocene": An epoch where humans and their design practices identify ecological frames of reference.
Now that's a epoch I can vibe with

Just attended a DSA meeting and now I'm doing a software security audit. That's two firsts!

Have got 10/12 of the bell peppers I grew from seed transplanted :) hoping for some good fruit and to keep them alive over the winter.
Does anyone know good kinship plants to intersperse with bell peppers??

My take on what capitalists can do (have to) to beat their toxic addictions and not burn our house down:

lmao can't find anyone that will rent to us in this city of 99% occupancy so I'm moving back into a community house that has one bathroom for like 15 people... I just hope there's an open room or I'll be bunk bedding

trump, uspol 

Can't stand people calling Trump an idiot or incompetent.
He's a CON MAN. He's making absolute bank for himself and his cronies. He's good at what he does - enriching himself.
His inadequacy as a president is not because he's incapable, but because he doesn't give a rats ass about the duties of the office - only himself.
That's not incompetency. It's evil. It's criminal.

This mastodon instance is dedicated to the survival of indigenous languages, plant knowledge, art, and cultural survival outside of the dominant white supremacist media promoted by colonist cash on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Melg'puguasit; We stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize food. Decolonize medicine. Decolonize housing. Decolonize from corrupt white supremacist networks like Facebook and Twitter. Decolonize the US from its oligarchal form of government! European statues, place names, words, languages, and accounting systems DO NOT BELONG on Turtle Island, and are killing the whole planet. "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as colonial systems continue to sink deeper into broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. .
