In case you missed it, you can follow people across the Fediverse even if you're using a different kind of site.

For example, here's a PixelFed account:


...here's a PeerTube account...


...here's a WriteFreely account...


...here's a Plume account...


...here's a Friendica account...


...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.

Just click on the @ link to see their profile, and then click on Follow.

A big problem with the way history is taught is that we aren't taught the full context of just how awful life was back then. We're (Sweden here) taught the names and lives of an awful lot of kings and how much they murdered people but we never get the perspective of serfs and tradespeople. They don't matter, because workers don't matter to this day.

Make education leftist, make people understand the class struggle that goes on to this day. Teach kids to draw parallels between oppression back then and oppression now.

Been interacting with birdsite lately. There have been serious racist attacks against an Albanian bakery in northern Belgrade, and I’m trying to give visibility to that. My last toot is a 2018 clip of the baker Mon Gjuraj, talking about giving free bread to refugees. BG needs more than ever.

According to Xinhua, China plans to build a base on the moon's south pole in ten years, which I think was the plot of a recent Stan Robinson book xinhuanet.com/english/2019-04/

@jbob @bob use value vs exchange value. Value formation through market exchange requires commensurability.
