dessalines,

Not always, but I try to add features to it quickly that get added to lemmy.

dessalines,

Yes they’re smaller, and muted (unless you voted and it changes their color). This is done because there are 4 pieces of info you can display now in the new 0.19.4 release.

dessalines,

No probs!

dessalines,

Yep, major thanks to @asonix for adding this to pict-rs.

dessalines,

That’s my bad really. Currently we’re using the patch semver to denote non-breaking changes, and the minor for breaking.

We’re holding off on a major release until the API reaches stable, which like all open source projects we’re reticent to do because then it puts a lot of pressure on us to match the standard of enterprise-level software developed by a large corporation.

Even though lemmy has many thousands of monthly active users, we’re still really an beta-level software developed by a handful of people.

dessalines,

This is correct, and we’ve been following this for lemmy too.

dessalines,

Thx! Let me know if the postgres upgrade helper script I provided has any issues.

dessalines,

You can always look at a github repository to see if a project is alive or not. Just because it doesn’t have frequent releases, doesn’t mean development isn’t happening.

dessalines,

o7

dessalines,

Eventually, but I’m spread pretty thin. It def needs more contributors.

dessalines,

Bias confirmation. People have to justify their carnist consumption, and an easy way to do that is to claim the other side is equally unethical.

dessalines,

That probably fits as a legal assault in many countries. So messed up.

dessalines,

“It’s clear Israel wants to do all it can to ensure civilian protection,” Biden said. “Let me be clear: What’s happening is not genocide.”

The article

dessalines,

I def recommend against starting with das kapital, at least until the advanced / intermediate stages. Its a slog, and not really the best introduction.

Here’s a Marxism study plan, with a good number of audiobooks / audiobook torrents for them.

dessalines,

I really recommend asking this question on lemmygrad or hexbear, bc you’ll get really good in-depth answers about the nature and differences between what’s labelled as “democracy” in capitalist countries, vs the reality of whether citizens of a capitalist dictatorship have anything resembling democracy.

dessalines,

No probs!

dessalines,

I just don’t see the point of using lemmy unless they’re a leftist in the first place.

Reddit already exists, and has a much bigger userbase that’s already pro-US and heavily anti-communist.

If it’s just because reddit took away the app treats, that’s kind of a sad reason to use an explicitly anti-corporate software, but I’m sure there’s a chunk of ppl on lemmy don’t think much past that.

dessalines,

That makes sense. lemmy.ml won’t be the one to defed from any of the larger servers, because we want to promote an interconnected fediverse, even if it does mean a lot of cross interaction and potential fights between pro and anti-communists.

Other servers are free to defederate if they wish, obvi its up to a server-owner to run their server how they see best. Even if there’s more rifts in the fediverse, I’m not too worried… the long-term trend though will be towards instances that connect with the most people, and don’t shut themselves out.

dessalines,

Ask these questions over on lemmygrad or hexbear, you’ll get good answers.

dessalines,

The way political discussions are often policed on ML instances (This one, Lemmygrad, and Hexbear) is not conducive to helping new people see your point of view.

If you ask in earnest, you’ll get good responses. A good number of people ask questions not to learn a different point of view, but to reinforce their own existing biases, which naturally becomes exhausting. Kind of like how POC get tired of justifying their existence to white supremacists, communists often for good reason get tired of trying to justify the existence of countries who choose to follow their own path, outside of the model of bourgeois democracy.

Aren’t people on ML instances also doing the exact same thing when they shout down and decry the wretched “liberals” (which seems to refer to anyone left-of-centre who doesn’t support communist party rule)? Whether it’s “tankie” or “liberal”, it only further entrenches the us vs them mindset.

Liberal, unlike tankie, has a fairly precise meaning in political discourse. It can be used too loosely IMO, but it generally means pro-capitalism, pro-individual freedom (including to exploit labor power to earn surplus value), pro free-market, pro-free speech (for all including reactionaries), pro wage-slavery, as well as specific limitations imposed on those considered outside of the “community of the free”. Its important to realize that even the US mis-definition of liberal (as vaguely socially progressive) includes all of the above, and the internationally accepted definition of liberal, is right wing (for example, the right wing party in Australia is the liberal party). The best book I can recommend here, is Losurdo’s Liberalism - A counter-history.

Not only that, but liberals rule most of the world, and especially most of the economies and governments of anglo-speaking countries, extracting a surplus from the sale of their labor power (who are mostly extremely poorly paid proletarians in the global south), and are responsible for most of the suffering of working-class people worldwide.
