This doc compiles a lot of sources and information, including many directly from Chinese state sources. If you've been told that this is a CIA op, that it's just one guy making it all up, this doc is for you.

Hello, I just switched instances, though I'm making a bit of a fresh start. Not doing a full migration.

I'm a pansexual anarchist who likes computers and feeding people. No gods no masters, arm trans women, etc. Other various interests include souls-like games, languages, and biology.

Looking forward to getting to know this new instance!

Apparently since it's the topic of the day, and Americans need reminded that the political depth in this country. Looks like a cheap plastic shallow pool full, of low grade crystal meth.

Even the Global NeoLiberal party cannot subscribe to the American DNC. Because it is that right wing. And NeoLiberalism is considered a very right wing ideology.

Oh, and they consider the RNC to be outright NeoNazi's at this point...

Other countries also register the American flag as a Swastika.

oh yeah and both capitalism and state socialist systems are ableist for classifying the worth of a person by their productive output or the productive output of units of people

Capitalism and State Socialism have the same problem with repressing science and our possible futures. Reading exercise: go through this Graeber piece and try to imagine what factors under the soviet union were involved in repressing scientific advancement because it threatened the power structure and ruling ideology.

here's a hint on one place where you can start imagining:

Anyways remember that if you joke about dissapearing/killing scientists under whatever tankie agenda you advocate for, that you are only reproducing the technological suppression of Capitalism.

If you really want to help people's privacy, then instead of blocking FLoC just skip a few steps and block people using Google Chrome.

You should show them a page explaining that Chrome is shit and they can't use your page until they get a better browser.

Otherwise you're clearly complicit in privacy invasion /s

So, ball’s in your court, web server developers.

Are you going to add a one-line header, by default, to your server responses to protect people from being tracked by Google or not?

Adding it to Site.js took 5 minutes or work:

Do you care?

Site.js 16.4.0 released

Tells Google to not track you in Chrome.

Note: any web server that doesn’t automatically do this doesn’t care about your privacy.

Also note: If you’re reading this, do not use Chrome.

Finally, fuck Google!
