The excess of capitalism leads to the necessity of an anti-crisis movement. The movement will focus on two keys to re-balance: social equality and the international commons: air, water and space.

The international commons is not for sale. It equally belongs to all of us and we belong to it. The continuous capitalist operations and growing amount of pollution, trashing, mining, trading, depletion and destruction are forcing us to declare it a trade-free zone.

A massive ice melting event is taking place in #Greenland, according to @PolarPortal
It would be enough to cover Florida in 2 inches (5 cm) of water
Not as extreme as 2019 in terms of gigatons but the melt area is a bit larger than 2 years ago.

@aral Eventually I could envision Digital Post Offices, that coordinate routine transportation of data from point A to B, using efficient tools with the requirement that these can fully function on a RaspberryPi or a laptop.

@aral Trade-free zone sounds very similar to solidarity zone to me, I'll have both.

Man thought that the important thing was to have, and did not know that the important thing is to be. The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what man is.

In 2014, I gave a talk called Free is a Lie at a run-of-the-mill, dime-a-dozen, Silicon-Valley-worshiping Big Tech/surveillance capitalism conference in the Netherlands.

Yesterday, I learned that they unlisted my talk on *spit* YouTube and that it might be removed.

@aral When we talk about distributed data in smallTech, we also respect off-line communities and people who turn their computer off at night.

@aral Webdb is stable enough for now. Next is rssqueue.

Take any rss feed and convert it to distributed data. The LibreTech Documentary Club (vo) is interested, they exfilter metadata from rapidmoviez.site/feed

We (the 99%) know that capitalism can no longer continue without causing more crisis.

Perhaps the best thing to do is to start a anti-crisis movement.

It’s not just unusual and extreme weather in Europe, it’s the climate crisis. And this is only the beginning if governments continue to prioritize profits over people and the planet. We cannot afford to wait any longer on climate action; the time to act is NOW.
