Talking politics with my parents 

My parents are pretty woke and politically aware, but I keep having to tell them quite how bad things are in the world and quite how bad they're liable to get in the next couple of decades, and it kinda breaks my heart. And also makes me feel like a crazy loon. :\

oh shit thats right i said im defederating from mastodon.cloud tomorrow

please check to see if mastodon.cloud people are among your followers or people you talk to and talk them into switching!

mastodon.cloud was bought by a corporation that does not seem to have any clear motive to not use it as a way to collect data, so we'd rather not let that happen

antifascism 

I often find myself rereading Bertrand Russell's letter to Mosley:

"Thank you for your letter and for your enclosures. I have given some thought to our recent correspondence. It is always difficult to decide on how to respond to people whose ethos is so alien and, in fact, repellent to oneโ€™s own. It is not that I take exception to the general points made by you but that every ounce of my energy has been devoted to an active opposition to cruel bigotry, compulsive violence, and the sadistic persecution which has characterised the philosophy and practice of fascism.
I feel obliged to say that the emotional universes we inhabit are so distinct, and in deepest ways opposed, that nothing fruitful or sincere could ever emerge from association between us.
I should like you to understand the intensity of this conviction on my part. It is not out of any attempt to be rude that I say this but because of all that I value in human experience and human achievement."

sleep science 

If you're interested in more about sleep, read Matthew Walker's book: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Why_We_S

It's really readable, is fascinating, scary, interesting and I think the only book on the planet that considers it a success if it puts you to sleep.

If you'd like to ask something that I might know the answer to, feel free - I'd be happy to try and reply. Perhaps the next day, as I'll soon head to get my own 8 hours of sleep.

sleep science 

Research shows that people shift their baselines and when exposed to long-term lack of sufficient sleep, they have no idea how badly they perform compared to their healthy baseline.

"I feel fine on 6h of sleep" is a myth. There are no humans who need less sleep than others and can still function as well as when having adequate sleep.

People just get used to their decreased state of functioning.

sleep science 

I'm not a sleep scientist, but I've recently read a book by Matthew Walker who runs Harvard's sleep research laboratory and I wanted to share a whole bunch of important, useful and interesting details about sleep.

What is it, what it isn't, why is it important and how it affects us.

when a white person says that they're "color blind" in response to discussion about racism, they think that they're saying "i am a tolerant person."

however, what they're actually saying is "i can't see racism, so i won't acknowledge it", which is a really messed up way to look at the world

closing our eyes and putting our heads in the sand doesn't make something go away. racism is here to stay until it is acknowledged, explicitly called out by name, and strongly addressed in every community.

Me before accidentally boosting a lewdy: Why on earth would I want a confirmation dialog for boosting?
Me after: Oh.

Personally I would never have an emotion. I would simply use facts, and logic, and argumentation

Hot take regarding the Web and decentralization 

The Web can help with decentralization but if it lives ONLY in the browser; due to the CURRENT nature of the Web browsing landscape; it's FAR from being decentralizated.

We need to go back to "install to computer" and "share from computer" levels of decentralization.

It's no coincidence that "race realist" is an anagram for "real e racist".

Iโ€™m a centrist; I believe both sides have valid ideas, both Communism and Anarchism.

Lilly: Bork!! Bork!!

terfs: "trans women are just gay men who go through the whole of their transition just to avoid having to admit they're gay"

almost every trans woman i see on social media: "i'm gay. like, really really gay. i'm super super ultra gay"

ThreeArrows' latest YouTube is about "the free marketplace of ideas" and the restrictions on it in Germany and the USA. It's really good:

sometimes, self care is Not โ€œtreating yourselfโ€

sometimes self care means saving your money or energy or time

donโ€™t let capitalism fool you into thinking you have to buy things to feel better / that itโ€™s the only way to care for yourself
