Electoral reform can save Canada 

... from Pierre Poilievre's politics

The supply-and-confidence agreement between the Liberals and NDP has already produced some modest victories, including the recently announced dental care plan. But if Trudeau and Singh want to deliver a truly lasting win for Canadians, they should revisit their positions on electoral reform and find a way to deliver on the promises made in the 2015 election campaign.

the queen and bishop first got their modern moves in valencia c. 15th century (during, incidentally, the reign of isabella i) and spread from there on out. this variation of chess was pejoratively called 'madwoman's chess' (italian schacchi alla rabiosa) in what is one of the earliest anti-woke gamer moments in the historical record

Y’know… I have to question anyone who thinks this massive lurch towards the right over the last decade or so *wasn’t* due in large part to centrists themselves supporting the right in order to spite everyone to the left of them.

Italian elections and media. [CW: Fascism mentions, CSA discussion, anti-Roma racism.] 

I keep seeing a bunch of reporters, primarily those in the Anglosphere, who keep saying *NOW* Italy has fallen to fascism. That they simply haven't learned anything.

And like... Sorry, but tell me you haven't actually been paying attention to Italy since the end of WWII without actually telling me? Y'know?

Like, simply looking at the three names on the right's coalition ticket: Meloni, Berlusconi, and Salvini. Two of these creeps made international headlines repeatedly.

One of them (Berlusconi) barely had his "indiscretions" discussed other than for people to make fun of his "bunga bunga parties" and how "silly" he was for claiming one of the girls was Mubarak's niece (conveniently helping him to ignore the sexual abuse and solicitation of sex with of underage girls).

Salvini made waves for a few things, but the most notable were his anti-Roma raids on settlements (along with wanting to force all Roma people to be on lists, which is *not reminiscent of anything at all* /s) and all the anti-immigration shit he spouted and blocking *the boats* that saved people from drowning.

Oh, and a few years ago, missiles linked to Forza Nuova were found in Torino? (And Berlusconi's Forza Italia worked with them.)

:Trek: :Discovery: Season 5 leaked scripts 

Saru: I was reading up on 21st century Earth history

Burnham: It's a complicated subject. Historical documents from that period are sketchy at best. Starfleet used to send ships into the past just to figure out how humanity survived its existential "growing pains."

Saru: Yes, in fact the computer database has only one text entry for the year 2025, and it just reads, in old Earth English "Eat the rich."

The idea of giving a single solitary shit about literally anything a celebrity does is absolutely mindboggling to me.

#ActivityPub Harassment Wave(s) 

I am putting this discussion on the #Fediverse so I cannot be accused of using a non-Fediverse medium like the #SocialHub (although we're working on it). I would appreciate that people here start taking harassment seriously and consider dropping their flags and think as responsible human beings.

There are about to be union contract negotiations that are huge. The rail workers were just a prelude.

As the inevitable reactionary BS starts to spread, just remind workers who think they are being harmed by worker pressure that the can literally join or start a union right now. They can join the fight and reap the worker wins too.
