take me down to the sunbeam city
where the grass is green
and the.. people live in harmony with their local ecosystems instead of destroying the planet for short-term gains

I'm not much of a "joiner", but if the philosophy described here by @garbados had a name, I might etch it into my sword:
"They say that crowns are reserved for kings. That jewels are the realm for those who deserve them.
And in the blink of an eye,
in the changing of the wind, fortunes change.
Through every shipwreck comes the chance to begin again. To rebuild anew atop the mistakes of the past. Out of death comes life.
We come to you, with the soul of a proud knight, and the trash filled mind of a laser bathed socialite.
Let us begin the story now."
@tindall @enkiv2 If we are to change that we must understand that this isn’t a technology/technique problem but a socioeconomic one. Unless we create alternatives to this business model, we are not going to affect meaningful change. As long as all investment (VC, etc.) goes into Surveillance Capitalism, we are going to get yet more of it. So let’s (a) acknowledge the actual problem (b) regulate the abusers (c) fund & create ethical alternatives from/for the commons.
Went to a #zerowaste themed event in my 'hood today. A lot of people excited about reducing waste and whatnot. It was quite inspiring.
Still it seems almost no one had a clue as to the actual causes of the problems we face in terms of waste and environmental destruction today. I haven't heard anyone talk about possibility for systemic change regarding production chains, or even sustainability for that matter.
Basically mostly "let's vote with our wallet" kinda thing.
Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.
Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.
Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.
First installment in the @firstname.lastname@example.org Dweb series!
@email@example.com shows you how to build your own communities with Secure Scuttlebutt.
We need radical radio, radical urban gardening groups, radical local currencies, radical places for the exchange of radical ideas, radical coops and commons, radical answers to soil degradation, radical schemes to win back our cities from automobiles. Radical devolution of power to the local, radical answers to climate change, radical new ways of living together....
So yes, I agree ;D
future is decent(ralized)
