Russia becoming essentially a Chinese satellite was always how this ended. The question is how much damage is done along the way and how well our nice little international status quo fares in the meantime.

Imagine old people talking like this in forty years. Utterly brain rotted, actual terminally online octogenarians with fifty years of memes and social media kicking around in their heads instead of thoughts.

Now remember that unless shit changes, those will be the people in charge of the world.

We might be in the Star Trek timeline. ☢️

I read your comment before even one sip of coffee. How am I supposed to do a spit-take under these conditions, I ask you?

It would be wise to test it everywhere. Just on a trial basis…Indefinitely.

I think ultimately UBI would have to be one of many aspects of moving towards post-scarcity. We will also need to be incrementally introducing free basic needs, free education, internet access, public transit, etc alongside it, while also passing rent control laws and, if antitrust laws aren’t up to the task, perhaps seizing oversized corps, and turning them into employee owned, maybe balkanized versions of themselves wherever that makes sense from an antitrust perspective.

You don’t get radical changes without radical solutions. None of this will happen without a fight of course.

It’s the newest craze: literal self-imposed outlawry! Now you can enjoy the smug satisfaction of a legally untouchable billionaire from the comfort of your clapped-out Nissan Altima!

A helpful graphic about writing alt text (lemmy.ml)

Parts of alt text are divided by color, including “identify who”, “expression”, “description”, “colour”, and “interesting features”.

Amazing how every sentence you said has its own bad premise and a skewed conclusion.

Don’t ask - I will not elaborate.

I would be really interested to see how it plays out if Congress decided to try and put the pin back in the president’s grenade. Would the US be forced to pay reparations? Would the military industrial complex flex its own political muscles more overtly than ever? How would that pan out in elections?

Remember a couple years ago when we gave Ukraine tons of shit immediately and for a split second it felt okay to be an American?

Trump was forced to listen silently as potential jurors offered their unvarnished assessments of him (apnews.com)

New Yorkers who said they couldn’t approach the case fairly were excused during jury selection. But one of the women with the harshest assessments of him will be among those who will determine his fate on 34 counts of falsifying business records....

I wish my beard grew that long, but it never wants to, I’m a little envious. You might benefit from one of those heated beard brushes that smooth out the hair. I got one but my beard refuses to grow in long enough for it to matter.

I must have tagged you as “F take” two months ago at least, and I’m right like every time. Thanks for all the free entertainment.
