I just finished reading “Fascism: A Very Short Introduction” (2nd ed.) by Kevin Passmore. Wrote up a short review at goodreads.com/review/show/4046 if anyone is interested. 🧐 Now I go back to lying in the sun and figure out something else to read… 🌞

#fosshost.org is now partnering with #Freenode: fosshost.org/news/freenode

I assume if one wanted to, they could discuss said announcement in their IRC channel... on #LiberaChat: fosshost.org/news/libera-chat

A tale of two IRC networks:

#Freenode: kicked us out of our channels, harassed one of our ops on their home page, made supposedly "draft" policy changes to permit hate speech

#LiberaChat: participated in *our* forum to address questions about governance and non-profit structure and asked for feedback on improvements: <meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php>

Hmm 🤔

There are different ways of beating Internet censorship. Some protect you from surveillance, but many do not. The circumvention tool that is best for you depends on your threat model. ssd.eff.org/en/module/understa

I’ll be doing the week 38 tomorrow on my Twitch channel at 17:00 CEST (11 AM US EDT).

It’ll be a bit of a Germany special with 2–3 German stories, but I also have some Danish media + news, as well as a handful of stories from Sweden!

What police really believe is white supremacy and some bullshit on Vox ain't going to clarify that. Every pig is a racist thug not to be trusted and to be treated as a threat because that is exactly what they are.

Police are there to keep you under the boot of the wealthy, place are there to "keep you in your place," they are the frontline in your oppression.

With app mandates in place, the same students who do not have reliable home broadband connections and study space for remote instruction would likely be unable to meet the smartphone app requirements to attend classes in person eff.org/deeplinks/2020/07/univ

Does anyone know of any (game) companies/departments that have policies for having people (e.g., people with visual impairments, who are hard of hearing, have motor control issues, missing a hand/fingers, etc.) as part of their regular ?

personal opinion on "the marketplace of ideas" 

the idea of letting both bigots and marginalized folks speak out freely sounds attractive, but in practice the bigots will win, because there's no equal segment of "anti-bigots" who seek to ruin the lives of bigots. →

i am unwilling to classify all law enforcement officers as bastards, but there sure are a lot of them and most police departments don't do anything to disincentivize officers from being bastards
