There's great work being done around the world, but so much of it is bankrolled by really problematic neoliberal enterprises as a marketing exercise.
The difficulty with that isn't that money is being funnelled into good causes, but that those good causes are beholden (even if subconsciously) to those neoliberal enterprises.
How about big companies pay their taxes and citizens decide where money is spent, instead of rich white guys and their marketing departments deciding?

Do y'all sometimes feel like you're just out here floating in cyberspace? Because there's only 129,747 accounts on Mastodon. And some of them are duplicates. How is that possible? Should I get start registering a shitload of Laura-related handles and then sell them later? Like people did with domain names in the early days of the web? Will this make me rich in the Capitalist definition of the word? If yes, Should I buy a luxury treehouse?
LOL someone else called me “condescending” and “aggressive” I have to ask myself, would they have written the word “aggressive" if I were a man? 🤔
How come every time I go to find a gif, I find it, pass it on, and STILL fall down the @GIPHY hole?
