I've always had a difficult time squaring my vocation with doing good in the world, but now I think I've crossed the line where I can no longer really buy into that.

Technocracy isn't improving the world, especially wrt the biggest problems, and most of the aerospace industry is actively making the world worse (even if my little corner isn't).

But I've spent my whole life training on this electrical engineering and code stuff. Where to go from here? Especially where to go without starving.

@Zuph Yuhhh I'm in the same boat as you homie. Two years from graduating in EE and I got homies working in Aerospace already who straight up can't handle seeing the political/economic fallout and are planning on quitting.

I want to work on mesh net ISPs and eventually get mega into fully open source development, hopefully work with Open Source Ecology to try and localize some of the heavy industry we rely on.

Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in an Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as an Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls. The Earth does not sustain white supremacists.
