Macron calling a general election right now is the most fuckwitted political move since Brexit. When this reckless gamble inevitably fails, he will retreat to his opulent, privileged life, leaving ordinary French and European citizens to deal with the consequences of the far right gaining power. https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-european-election-results-2024-emmanuel-macron-snap-election-marine-le-pen-national-rally-jordan-bardella-national-assembly/

@Miriamm he's an idiot and now more than ever that is pretty much evident, he thinks he can outwit the people that have been building a base for years while he and his cronies have been at work disappointing everyone in at least some way. The only thing that might save them is the possibility of a strong mobilization against the far right in the elections (which might be tricky), unless they start fragmenting their own base with more idiotic moves.

@Miriamm yes that has been the problem mostly everywhere. They now try the old "you get what you vote for" which is clearly blame shifting since they know pretty well people are being manipulated all the time via propaganda to decide one way or the other.

So today is Portugal, the Portuguese, and Portuguese speaking communities day or Luís de Camões day, depending on how you like to call it. It's a time where suddenly everyone starts talking about cosmopolitanism and Camões. It's also a time where every "intellectual" from Portugal, Brazil, etc talks about Camões as if he was not basically writing while on one of the trips that started the colonial era. Also there's a chance of being called unpatriotic by pseudolefties for pointing this out.

"Copilot is the largest attack on copyright" you're making it sound good

@whitequark it's quite visible now that most of the corpus around copyright and patents exists only to feed lawyers and protect monopolies/oligopolies, when it comes to individuals they're pretty much screwed without waving their rights to one of the aforementioned entities.

The very fact we have to say “vote against fascism” is a damning indictment of the failure of our democratic institutions and the rule of law. You shouldn’t be able to vote FOR fascism. Democracies that lack constitutional safeguards against fascism will, eventually, stop being democracies. When? At the last election. The one that elected the fascists. Democracy cannot tolerate fascism. Tolerance cannot tolerate intolerance. I’m afraid this is a lesson we will learn the hard way. Again.

ncrav,
@ncrav@mas.to avatar

@aral it's also pernicious even within a supposed democracy: I would encourage anyone to look at who gets to be a candidate and check their background of family and political ties going back a few decades at least. Especially in countries where third parties have basically zero chance of entering the political theatre. More often than not what is seen as a democracy is an oligarchy switching power between a few groups and using the same extreme discourse as true fascists to polarise people.

I'm back! And very grumpy :DsaprvingLua: :DsaprvingLua: :DsaprvingLua:

Hotel people gave me lots of hays and greens and some snacks, but not enough 🙄 I was also very vocal about the whole situation every time they came near me to clean stuffs 🙄🦫

I also had some adventures as I got to sneakily escape and hunt for snacs in the night skies with @theRhinoDragon 💨🐇🐉

Hello friends, I’m about to make a call on some wacky old school phone to ask for the rain 🌧️ to stop here!

It’s been a very busy and very wet 💦 Monday- BunMum and BunDad have been bailing water from neighbour drainpipes all day as they haven’t gotten the new sump pump yet (and they don’t want me floating down the street in the house!). They’ve also got a new eavestrough issue due to some neighbour’s trees. 😅 -Skye 😘❤️ #SkyeLove

I read a full book today, although small (132p) it has been a long time since I had been able to do that 🥳🎉

Lua: sadly I wasn't able to chew on it 🦫

Also regarding the book on this thread: There are some families* that back then had members ranking high in the dictatorship that today remain in power either directly in politics or within the economy. Neither the dictatorship nor revolution was able to take power from them.

  • Portuguese names can get rather big (I have 2 given names + 3 surnames) so with more uncommon surnames (usual in the aristocracy or oligarchs) it is rather easy to find out if two people are related with a few searches.

https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/errico-malatesta-anarchy

Errico Malatesta issue on Anarchy provides a good point to understand the concepts, concerns, and critiques.

He was an Italian anarchist that personally met Bakunin and Kropotkin. He was also persecuted during Fascist Italy.

He had his own ideologically inclusive form of libertarian communism (see 2/3), and believed in a labour movement that brought together disparate groups in order to form stronger unions (see 3/3)

#anarchy #anarchism #communism

2/3

His particular form of inclusive (for lack of a better word) anarchism is better illustrated in this passage:

"Imposed communism would be the most detestable tyranny that the human mind could conceive. And free and voluntary communism is ironical if one has not the right and the possibility to live in a different regime, collectivist, mutualist, individualist—as one wishes, always on condition that there is no oppression or exploitation of others. "

See https://www.marxists.org/archive/malatesta/1929/property.html

@ncrav@mas.to avatar

3/3
His vision on the labour movement is rather pragmatic as well (at least when operating in a non-revolutionary setting):

"...the aim of the labour movement is the protection and improvement of the conditions of the workers now and is not effective if its ranks are not swelled with the greatest possible number of wage earners, united in solidarity against their bosses..."

Perhaps the close encounter with fascism helped him see the trouble of fragmentation.

Furends! I knew the hoomin was up to something I was taken to the VETs! They were the ones asking for my poops earlier 🙄 I was very mad to be taken off my usual window spot and go around in the noisy carriage 😒 they turned me around and inspected all of my tiny body, and poke me a lot, then they gave me some kind of vaccine. Daddy gave me some dandelion greens but I'm still mad 😤

BunDad: she's all good, just a few strands of hair on her poops but nothing to worry

Lua on the vet table still pretty much annoyed
