On fake anarchisms 

One way to expose anarcho-nationalism and anarcho-capitalism as fake is through understanding "ism" there. Anarchism is a single ideology, mutualists, (an)communists or collectivists don't disagree on what anarchism is. Rather they disagree on how to realise the same ideas. Anarchism is a single ideology, different economic systems proposed are different interpretations of single ideal, usually analysed as a popular tendency of people.

getting to know lots of people but not really connecting with anyone seems to be the curse of fedi, at least for me

listening to memhaz from February and wondering is Adam is still a vegan

Predictive Policing systems don't predict where crime will happen - they predict where the police will look for crime (that is, it predicts police, not criminals, and it gets to cheat because cops follow its predictions, making them self-fulfilling prophecy).

Santa Cruz is a superspreader of the predictive policing junk-science epidemic, home to the HQ of Predpol, secretive police profiteers who have marketed their tools to small towns, big cities, even campuses.

St Louis MO, reddit link 

The mayor of St. Louis read out the names and addresses of people who petitioned to defund the police.

This is intimidation, clear and simple.

Don't be surprised when people who previously believed in systems of governance lose their confidence and take on the challenge of fighting injustice more directly.

So Linehan, after being banned from twitter, decided to go to mumsnet at like, 3am, and wrote a big multi-paragraph post whinging. He was promptly hoisted by his own petard, and I’m very amused

there is this constant idea among those raised in unjust societies that complete equality is inherently dehumanizing, because it doesn't let anyone get to be better than others. "no participation prizes." the "best" must constantly be acknowledged.

this is bullshit, and speaks to a dark way of looking at the world. You don't have to be better than others, why would you? you can be your absolute best, and take great pride in that, but why compare yourself to others? liTerally what the fuck do you gain from that, other than a mean-spirited and aggressive outlook on your fellow person?

Let me spell it out for you: You think you deserve acknowledgement for your imaginary "ranking" among others in all things because you've been programmed deeply to always want to climb the ladder of your societies' caste system. Because otherwise, you can't eat, or get medical attention, or ever feel safe.

The solution is NOT to enforce this ranking and demand kudos. It is to make it so that everyone is safe, and so nobody needs to worry about rank anymore. Nobody being "best", because everyone is safe and content, is the true victory.
