You:
- You're talking about "scientific socialism" like it's a real science, what kind of a scientist would support it, Albert Einstein?

Any startup will tell you that it's nearly impossible to beat the law of scale. Huge internally centrally planned economies like Walmart and Amazon are practically unstoppable for a reason.

It's more efficient for multiple communes to make bulk orders together, to have joint production, etc. This is an inevitable trend because providing for the people asap is more important than whatever "freedom" means to some libertarian. Independence? From what, from help? We all depend on each other.

People adding a blue verified checkmark to their own names is anarchist praxis. It's denying others the authority to decide who gets a badge. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

Why didn't the Avengers calmly debate Thanos? Is civility not important to them? 🤔

So what if he snapped? They should've persuaded him to punish himself. You can't just use physical force for political reasons, that's barbarian and a slippery slope. :thonking:

P.S. Didn't watch Endgame.

500 character limit is superior to birdsite's 140/280.
With 140 as the limit, people write whole novels in "threads".
With 500, it feels wrong posting more than one toot, especially in responses, so I usually make an effort to make it shorter.

Eugen is my spirit animal.

On a related note: since when is advising instances to ban neo-nazis controversial? Muh freeze peach!

@Gargron the replies you're getting from nazi apologists will be great additions to my blocklist.

@inditoot @one @pinkprius Personally I never wanted to go mainstream, but I did want to help provide alternative options to the mainstream BS for people who want that.

If mainstream culture means having neo-nazis grandstanding and spreading hatred in my timeline then I don't want it. I would hope that the standards here are higher than that.

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.
