“The utopian, immanent, and continually frustrated goal of the modern state is to reduce the chaotic, disorderly, constantly changing social reality beneath it to something more closely resembling the administrative grid of its observations.”
― James C. Scott
Good warning for social.coop “Designed or planned social order is necessarily schematic; it always ignores essential features of any real, functioning social order ... the simplified rules animating plans for, say, a city, a village or a collective farm were inadequate as a set of instructions for creating a functional social order, The formal scheme was parasitic on informal processes that, alone, it could not create or maintain.”
― James C. Scott, Seeing Like a State
You may see some toots from us referencing a design sprint in London this week for the project. We're partnering with Outlandish, a worker-owed tech #coop, for that 👍

I just got asked to participate in a conference because it's too much of a sausage fest. I was like sure, I can run a workshop, do a talk, what do you need? 'I need you to read what I've written word for word up on stage,' says the 'woke' organiser. I told him I wasn't comfortable doing that, but that I could write something up. 'No, that's not what I need,' said he.
So much sexism is unconscious, it's a clusterfuck to pin down. Esp when a man thinks they're one of the 'good guys'
Dual inheritance theory:
Human behavior is a product of two different and interacting evolutionary processes, genetic evolution and cultural evolution. Genes and culture continually interact in a feedback loop, changes in genes can lead to changes in culture which can then influence genetic selection, and vice versa.
One of the theory's central claims is that culture evolves partly through a Darwinian selection process.
"Another intriguing possibility is that the concept of #decentralized autonomy could allow the human race to achieve a #singularity without the involvement of #AI but rather through a more novel framework of human interaction and collaboration equating a #hivemind "

@Antanicus This is my theory on ancaps: They have an extremely positive image of themselves, but an extremely negative image of nearly everybody else, so they think money is their salvation from having to rely (or participate) in meaningful relationships with all us other ‘stupid folk’. These capitalists are shit scared — of other people especially — and their human-hating ways have created a human-hating ideology which we need to expose and undermine at every opportunity.
