Feel free to apply your daily social distancing to fascists!

They are more toxic and dangerous than the Sars-Cov-2

something i see over and over again among computer scientists is a fundamental lack of respect for other disciplines. how are you supposed to recreate or subsume something you dont respect, and therefore cannot truly understand

What economists call over-production is but a production that is above the purchasing power of the worker, who is reduced to poverty by capital and state.

basically, the tree of life, when you zoom in close enough, really is a spectrum. The misconception of people who don't understand evolution is partially because the idea of "species" as hard coded boundaries is very natural for us. We love categories and patterns, and unfortunately for us, nature is just not as simple as we'd prefer it to be. Over both space and time, the boundaries between species is blurry. There is no "missing link" because it was always a gradual series of changes to different populations across the world to begin with. The world is a messy and complicated place, and we're all distant cousins of each other.

@starwall or better yet, accept the chaos... Humans put too much emphasis on definitions. It's anthropocentric hubris.

@dankwraith Easy. Destroy capitalism. Destroy the obnoxious idea that monetizing something is the only reason for doing something.

something that irritates me a lot about liberalism is looking at the explosion of creative output enabled by the internet and saying "well, there is too much competition for everyone to make money doing this, so clearly people are wrong to desire creativity" instead of "how do we configure society so that people can be human"

Let me put it this way: if you are not a startup (i.e., you don't have venture capital and you’re not looking to scale exponentially and have a billion-dollar exit) and yet you call yourself a startup, you are actively helping the startup that will offer your services for free until it kills your sustainable small tech business.

So maybe don’t call yourself a startup.

Startup is a Silicon Valley brand. It does not mean a new, small tech business.

Life’s too short to spend begging power to please be kind. I’d rather spend what little time I have working to ensure that such power doesn’t exist to begin with.
