Many political actions feel toothless and ill defined. Moths to a meat grinder. Look to the 2 spirit and indigenous women leading the water protectors stopping the line 3 pipeline β€” we’re probably nearing the final push now β€” their continued direct action over years has helped to define what intersectional resistance looks like.

Meta thoughts on fedi and collapse thinking 

There is a group here on fedi that I find myself in orbit of, and interested in, but also wary of. They’re concerned with climate collapse but lean heavily in the direction of β€œlongtermism.” At its face this modality of thought seems important, but it also seems to silently support accelerationism since much of longtermism traces the outline, even if it doesn’t say it out loud, of an argument about current people not mattering.

Carmen Sandiego stands at the edge of the building, the sun setting behind her shoulders. The wind gently picking through her hair.

Across the roof, standing in silhouette, lit only by the setting sun at his face and the neon billboard behind, Tuxedo Mask shouts: β€œit seems we’re at a stalemate.”

Carmen laughs. She knows where Waldo is.

You’d assume that Lt. Cmdr. Data used Haskell, but he actually used Forth to accomplish most daily tasks. Lore, however, only ever used a dialect of Brainfuck that compiled to JavaScript...a language long dead, preserved by the Q continuum for no real good reason other than to, one day, totally and completely fuck with Miles O’Brien.
