@hamishcampbell @msaunders I have to admit that I am very new to both networks - just started to join both a week ago, so I can't tell anything about average users - I guess ones INITIAL experience with both depends on which pod one joined, because one will find such people first.

Technically: Being on a browser (no cellphone) I find mtds' 3 column interface a little confusing (ex: nearly missed your toot cause afterwards the next toot pushed yours down).
Missing that both can't be connected.

@hamishcampbell

Once I was walking for 4 months along the Danube and purposely did not take any smartphone with me.

It is quite good to be off the grid for longer periods once in a while again to reconnect with the non-virtual reality.

So enjoy your reconnection to your self !

@hamishcampbell

you raise interesting points in your toots.

I am happy to answer to you, as soon as you tell me what you mean with M&D .

(and btw, your timesettings are off, because to me it is shown that you did post this on april 29th of this year)

Wir sind vom Geldsystem in eine Logik gepresst in der wir konstant von unserer Umgebung billige Arbeitskraft oder die Ausbeutung der Erde saugen müssen, um uns selbst zu erhalten.

Geld, was Gier eingebaut hat, ist und wird niemals gleichmäßig verteilt werden; und Menschen, die versuchen wohlwollende Projekte zu schaffen, enden meist als "nützliche Idioten", die achtlosen Gewinnern Rückendeckung geben, damit diese sich auf ihre Gier konzentrieren können.

The root-cause of our system and how to tackle it:
There is a lot of frustration about faults in the system, but the focus on individual issues is a distraction which sucks out our life energy for a deeper analysis of the cause of it all.

A solution lies not immanent within the system, but by analyzing its flaws, determining its root-error
and then providing an alternative to it ... (more here:)

3 Hopes:
Physically:
You definitely can make a hell of a lot of progress with holistic thinking of any kind, because issues are nearly always psycho-somatic, so the literally require to be tackled holistically.

Emotionally:
Anxiety and anger indicate that you long for your true home.

Spiritually:
Underlying belief-system shape your perspective and then makes you interpret certain incidents as traumas whilst you skip over other points which for other people are problematic.

@submedia We aware that our society is unjust and destroys the planet. but aside from demonstrations we all are forced in the end to play along in order to support our daily life. Or are we ?

Temporarily yes, but in the long run the solution is to analyse the root of this problem - and that is clearly our entire money system which favors , breeds and incentivises greed.

This financial system must be detatched from world-currency and fashioned in a p2p manner in order to bypass banks.

@hamishcampbell very interesting - especially for me who is here for the first day and just tries to find new contacts.
I was wondering how I would find contacts out of this pod and I ope that the mastodon software has features for me to reach out beyond individual pods.
A P2P solution also would be a right step into a solution for micro-payments which yet have not been tackled properly.
As I write this I also started an account with diaspora on social.gibberfish.org and will compare them.
