British politics is a mess, and the nastiest people are in control of the establishment of #deathcult ists.
The liberal foundation model will be forced onto us if the Fediverse is taken up buy large Burocratic orgs like the #EU and yes the will be a figleaf of “democracy” placed over the self-selecting oligarchy that will be put into place by “power politics” that this path embeds.
This path is the default outcome.
Should we do something that is native to the Fediverse, and what would this look like?
The current leadership model of the #fedivers is "aristocracy" this is the same model of most open source projects. The developer "king" works fine to an extent.
We all know the reality is elephant stampeding with people throwing paper planes at each othr. This is the #fedivers and truth to form.
Democracy is ALWAYS messy - burocracey is tidy.
Hope is affective social challenge/change. The is no hope in #mainstreaming this is carrier building and statues games for individuals.
We live in an era of reactionary politics that the rightwing use by appealing to a sense of injustice and then, instead of focusing anger on the rightful target (capitalism etc) they create a movement to serve their own class interests, in most cases this is #stupidindividualism of far right libertarianism.
Conservatism/right wing is based on fear and the resulting desire for control.
Progressive/left wing is based on cooperation and trust with the resulting desire for freedom.
Yes this is muddled by right wing agenders to push their lies. Don't be a #fashernista on this subject please.

It's time to start talking about the left wing trolling problem. We know the right wing has trolls, over the last few years the abdication to the #dotcons has bread left wing trolls. What are we to do?

The dominant post-modern thinking of our #fashernistas has made a mess of our idea of what activism is and for, positive social change, love not hate. The new breed of right-wing ”activists” are pushing hate and fear to further the agender of social destruction to feed the #deathcult god of neo-liberalism that we all worship. This is of course not activism, rather fascism. Best to use the right words so as not to add to the mess.
