"The knobby baby stood up. His face was a glare of sunlight and anger. His diapers were about to fall off. “Mine!” He said in a high, ringing voice. “Mine sun!”
“It is not yours,” the one-eyed woman said with the mildness of utter certainty. “Nothing is yours. It is to use. It is to share. If you will not share it you cannot use it.” And she picked the knobby baby up with gentle hands and set him aside, out of the square of sunlight."
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. 🎂 🎉 🎈
