♲ @skarabrae@witches.live: I was really just thinking of the kernel, but it also applies to everything else.

These things are really amazing social constructions. Underneath the glossy veneer there's a huge amount of arguments, bugs, clashing of titanic egos and corporate agendas and so on. And yet somehow out of the fog of war we still manage to obtain a usable system. Usable enough to run the planet.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: And one day we must ask the question, ‘Why are there forty million poor people in America? And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth.’ When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the whole society. protestationblog.wordpress.com

Aw man, I got my Imperfect Foods order.

I absolutely love it. It's a good amount of food, but not so much where I don't I can use it all in a week, which means I can have fresh fruits and veggies all the time in an affordable and responsible way.

Much excite.

It's clear that "technologically neutral" can lead to abuses: Tusky being "neutral because the tech permits it" could have led to more hate speech like "kill all Jews", Mozilla doing "nothing because certs are technically designed to work this way" lets the digital rights of Kazakhs be eroded.

It is clear that technology serves a human purpose, technology doesn't serve itself, so I believe we shouldn't let our human morals be a slave to technology, we should make technology reflect our humanism

Lotta well-armed right-wing militias in rural US that probly crossover with the nazi farmers.
