It doesn't matter how old I am, whenever I think about my 5 years younger self, I always feel embarrassed by what a clueless fool I was back then.

This either means I'm constantly growing and learning... or that I'll forever remain a clueless fool.

Probably the latter.

The power of the state will never deliver joy, happiness and fulfillment to any society. Such power was created by drones for the sole purpose of pillage and indulgence of their often murderous violence against those who do produce, through their toil -- whether through determination, intelligence or brawn -- everything useful and good in man's life.
-- Nestor Makhno

Very horrible video: Lethal police violence Amsterdam 

Last night in #Amsterdam the #police killed a German man with clearly mental problems. The man walked around holding (according the police) a knife against his throat. The policeman an the left (on video right) tries to use his dog to eliminate the German man, but the dog refuses to do so somehow. Instead the policeman knocks the man to the ground. The man panics. We can't see what happens next (why stops the camera filming this?). You hear a few shots and that is it.

This is yet another example of why the police is not suited to handle people with mental issues. Experts are asking for changes for years, all around the world. Why doesn't politicians in charge and the police doesn't listen? Yes the police must be abolished one day, but let's start with creating local teams of mental health experts who will handle this.

I'm fucking #ANGRY!

Any recommendations for #email hosting service? I'm willing to pay, rather than give all my data to Google. 😛

Preferrably some nice co-op-y/non-scummy EU based company, or something like that...

So apparently Mozilla let go 250 employees including the threat management team.
To make it even worse they announce this in a blog post full of corporate doublespeak.

Also Mitchel baker has a salary of 2.5$ Mil which apparently couldn't be lowered so they at least wouldn't have had to let got the *threat management team*.

Plain text is nice too?

to junior back-end devs: don't ever mention that you can do front-end in an emergency, or you'll do little else the rest of your career.

And this, folks, is why you should avoid monoliths 😜

The protesters in Seattle must be so happy to be gassed by their first lesbian mayor. Really makes you feel like the crimes against humanity have become more progressive ❤️

pol, anarchy 

anarchy is literally just about not having a ruling class, and about expecting adult human beings to be responsible members of society and help each other. in its purest form, anarchy advocates for direct democracy and for the needs of all to be met by those who can provide. they feed and clothe people, they offer shelter, they work for the common good

anyone who can look at the breakdown of our representative democracy and the abuse of power by our executive branch and try to claim that the problem is "anarchists" is either completely ignorant, or is desperately trying to stop you from turning to those who can actually help

What do I, a proletarian, care for the tranquility and security of the rich? I care as little for public order as for the proprietor's safety. I ask to live a laborer; otherwise I will die a warrior.
