hello to all my new followers
Twitter and the subcultures that developed there were a setup that encouraged, exploited and capitalized on left melancholy. For leftists, Twitter's model of doling out content (often out of context /chronological order and its emphasis on showing content to folks who would not otherwise see it, effectively opening up "closed" conversations to the world) was particularly exploitative of it being much easier for us to fight other leftists than it is to fight capitalism.
anyone who grooms their following:follower ratio on mastodon is a cop
Leftists are like crows:
b) they will fight you for food
c) surprisingly numerous
d) dark plumage
e) possibly their own worst enemies? [see f]
f) culture impossible to decipher for outsiders and possibly insiders
g) can be a nuisance in dense urban areas
we need to start taxing billionaires fairly by throwing them into the sea
huh i wonder how Mastodon is gonna change after the influx of all these Twitter leftists and... uhh.. well this is new...

political killings, massacre Show more
A massacre and not an encounter took place in Antique - press statement by Concha Araneta, National Democratic Front Panay spokesperon
reading this right now made me sick to my stomach and i just burst out in tears. Duterte's bloody reign of terrorism is only getting worse and it's hard not to be demoralized by hearing news of attacks like this... but i think Concha puts it best when she says this:
"Our grief will not end in merely shedding tears. What our revolutionary martyrs would have wanted is to show our grief transformed into courage by bravely raising our fists and shouting out loud to carry on the revolutionary struggle! We salute you beloved comrades!
The blood on the fascists’ hands will never be forgotten."
YOU 👏 CAN'T 👏 BE 👏 CENTRIST 👏 ON 👏 A 👏 DECENTRALIZED 👏 PLATFORM 👏
I wrote a tweetstorm over on the ol' birdsite about my early days on Twitter, and my early days on Mastodon, and how this place is giving me hope. I think it'll be interesting to some of you. https://twitter.com/waxpancake/status/1027793032676962305
