My thoughts so far on writefreely: I just don't know if it's for me.

I love the minimalistic UI, that it lets me focus on my writing, and especially the ActivityPub integration, but I don't have nearly enough control over the final product that's shown to the user. I had to fight hard to style it the way I wanted, and now I've realized the homepage shows the full content of every post; not ideal for my use case.

I may still self-host a public WriteFreely instance as part of @freedomtowrite.

When you see the impact your decisions have on the world, it seems like it gets pretty hard to justify "hey, let's all buy a shitload of drugs and shitty cars and weld metal all over them, drive clear across the country at 3mpg and then at the end of it build a giant fire!"

It should be obvious to nobody that our and classes are morale bankrupt.

Anyone pushing is the problem, not the solution they talk about.

I sometimes wonder who will break ranks and start to use the is it going to be you :)

The UK Tory's party pushed the suicide button with the huge fossil fuels subsidy and the suspension of green energy subsidies.

is no longer a metaphor it's the reality of all our ruling class.

Please use the when talking and commenting on all behaviour, tell the truth, don't be shy

Most projects are blindly and dogmatic, they are beyond hopless and add to the pile to compost.

Ideas on a good path on this mess.

Thinking about activism, “The weapon of criticism obviously cannot replace the criticism of
weapons. Material force must be overthrown by material force. But
theory also becomes a material force once it has gripped the masses.”
