I don’t personally feel clever/informed enough to do a decolonialist examination of the Souls series, but I feel like the whole setting of like....traversing the ruins of a crumbling once-vast empire, haunted by the deadly, bloodthirsty shades of its rulers and servants as they all cling desperately to dwindling power in their own ways....is definitely something
I want to make sure this is clear to all. ubuntu.buzz is open to having people join our instance. The creator and admin of our instance is me, Ikora. I'm a black femme, but you don't have to be to join us. We are creating a community space based on restorative justice principles. So, yes, everyone is welcome! But, it's in context, right? Unearned advantages will be addressed and acknowledged. We won't be gaslighting each other. Listen to experience, etc. Join me if you want to help. <3
How does one communicate to conservative friends and relatives that no getting banned from Twitter is not a first amendment violation but that yes it is a travesty that just two companies control such a massive percentage of public discourse that it might as well be?
And also that there's this thing called the Fediverse but no you can't have an account on my instance because I don't want to hear about it after I have to ban you.
Picked this up on #etsy recently and it arrived yesterday. It's perfect.
All the libs that are like "the cops should have shot them with rubber bullets and tear gas and blah blah blah like blm" are really showing that they want brutality to be more widespread and not removed.
I hear a lot of folks saying that they don't understand how the economic forecasts on TV are so rosy for America and yet millions are facing eviction, bankruptcy and even going hungry b/c of the pandemic.
It's not that they're lying; it's that this is what the financialization of an economy/neofeudalism can do. Wall Street is rebounding and knows it will survive with free public money - YOU get left to die and don't count.
That's why we must be anti-capitalist; there is no other choice.
Some flavor of leftist.
Computer guy, but that's boring.
I'm just here to read shitposts.
