This instance is a place to plan and talk about direct action in a practical ways, yes we can wax philosophical at times which is fine but in the end it comes back to real people doing real things on real ground to affect real power relationships. To work towards a more "horazontal" world for everyone and everything.
The hashtag #stupidindividualism
You can read this both ways, the way it's intended to be read is that your individualism makes you stupid or the other by thinking your being called stupid. Of course both are true, but the first one is the constructive truth am telling and the second is the destructive truth you are rejecting which of course shows that you are truly full of #stupidindividualism its a simple message.
Liberals oftern use they liberalism as a figleaf for there imperialism.
Neo-liberalism use economics as a figleaf to hide there evil conservatism.
We need to not be prudish and remove the figleafs.

What dose this make you think of?
Food for thought when talking about digital privacy.
Steinem and Smeal: Why 'Mrs. America' is bad for women - Los Angeles Times
The #openweb was ripped apart by meany forces.
#encryptionists pushing securaty theater broke UI and trust based relationships
#geekproblem narrowed this into a irrelevant subculture.
#fashernistas inbraced the bad in both sides for self intrest, greed and fame.
#dotcons privatised data and metadata to the service of profit and social controle. All the above groups played there role in this.
The #openweb is a hollow shell for most people
A workshop from this January regarding microplastics in the environment
We live in a #deathcult born of the love of neo-liberalism and post modernism of the last 40 years. Kinda feel you cannot move on with out this understanding. At the moment the "reasonableists" are a bunch of lost people individually bashing about in a huge spiky bush. Of course this bush has roots (see above) cut the roots and you have a lot of dry firewood - 20th centery history says do not let the resulting fire get out of hand.
Think rebooting grassroots media and/or the #openweb would be a small step in the right direction.
Knowledge and communication are both at the base of power. We are completely powerless in the #dotcons world on these subjects.
Only fantasists and loons would not agree with this simple view.
Worth talking about these issues in actavist groups https://www.documentjournal.com/2020/06/the-blurred-faces-and-ethics-of-protest-photography/
Angela Davis vs the Liberal Reformers - Existential Comics
Big Tech is the malady. Decentralization is the antidote.
Decentralize, and the advertizing model breaks down. Celebrities turn into mere jerks with over-inflated opinions of themselves. Facebook can only profit if it has billions of users locked in to its walled garden. Without centralization, existential threats become paper tigers.
