Karens, new essay, hierarchies, work, consumerism 

Lez go!

"Every Karen outburst is firstly a proclamation of defense against some violation of these rules to which the target may or may not subscribe, and secondly a move into victim-mode. The Karen thereby covers themselves in innocence, while fighting a crusade against perceived injustice, throwing a verbal tantrum for self-gratification through expression of their virtuousness and to whip up popular support."

A personal fantasy of mine is to rob amazon bookstores and donate the books to libraries.

I want scifi films in which there is a vibrant, detailed, complex universe with plenty of background lore, but is about, say, a teenage girl finding her lost cat, or a group of socially awkward queers starting a band, or middle aged single homos finding love, or a pair of friends (one human and one alien) going on a camping trip where nothing bad happens.

the only thing the advertisement industry definitely can sell is other capitalists on the idea that advertisements work

"Extending lifespan of smartphones [by one year] would cut same CO₂ as eliminating two million cars"

Cool, make it more than just one year then.

EU is pushing through a new law that will require phone manufacturers to support their products for a longer time, because so many phones are made useless when they would work for much longer without planned obsolescence.

Capitalist corporations need such expensive babysitters.

Chuckling to myself as I remember the phrase "intellectual dark web"

Sick and tired of people using the plight of "small business owners" as an excuse to continue fucking over the poor

I don't like the term "anti-vax", I prefer the term "incel for vaccines"

They say you should measure twice and cut once, but I've found it's much more efficient to only measure once for each time you cut. You can literally reduce your measuring time by 50%! This technique is how I intend to disrupt the measuring and cutting industry

Someone in the comments section claims to have been hit on foot by a Ford Explorer and then chucked his tactical tomahawk at the rear tire as it sped away, "at which point the would-be assailant quickly surrendered" and then, one assumes, everyone clapped

Portland’s whole commuter friendly facade crumbles the second a train line is down and buses have to pick up the slack.

Ok, finally came up with a first draft of the anti-shaking hands poster. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Cult Of Action
by Misotheist

Irrationalism also depends on the cult of action for action's sake. Action being beautiful in itself, must be taken before, or without, any previous reflection. Thinking is a form of emasculation. Therefore culture is suspect insofar as it is identified with critical attitudes. Distrust of the intellectual world has always been a symptom of Ur-Fascism, from Goering's alleged statement ('When I hear talk of culture I reach for my gun') to the frequent use of expressions such as 'degenerate intellectuals,' 'eggheads,' 'effete snobs,' 'universities are a nest of reds.' The official Fascist intellectuals were mainly engaged in attacking modern cultural and the liberal intelligentsia for having betrayed traditional values." - Umberto Eco, "Ur-Fascism" June 22, 1995

Holy. Please read this thread so you can better understand what's going on here in the Twin cities. We're in a hyper police state currently where BIPOC are afraid to leave the house right now. We're seeing the police state like we never have and our reps are lying to the public https://twitter.com/W_R_Emory/status/1383280504976199680

Whenever my liberal friends get upset over the "radical" stuff I say I love to respond with "oh well you can tolerate the bigoted shit your parents/family believes in and it doesn't make you this sad, so why am I getting the brunt of your tears?"

That usually hits them hard.

Please don't share videos of people getting killed by the police. This isn't to anyone in particular, just a general psa.
