Indigenous empires were feeding cities of millions for generations, on a fraction of the land, without destroying the Earth to do so. And then white people arrived and oh no! Everything died?! Gosh I Wonder Why 🤔
questions like 'would you rather fight a single horse-sized goose or 100 geese-sized horses' are funny to me, b/c a goose-sized horse would be harmless, just an adorable little thing, whereas a horse-sized goose would be an unholy terror, jurassic park on steroids, kick your ass, eat your house, kick the asses of your entire family just for fun
re: bitching about code under capitalism
@garbados love all the open source startups that have formed around open source infrastructure software, which 30 years ago might have been a Unix command.
they now need a marketing department, a community management team, dedicated conferences, and their documentation still sucks, and it's still bug ridden — so i don't quite see the benefit this new system has produced, other than pulling more people than necessary into this maelstrom.

tl;dr The better Bernie does, the more he'll be attacked and sabotaged. And unless things drastically change, he's not going to have an outright majority at the convention, which will give the DNC everything they need to hand the nom to Pete or Amy. In that event, Bernie supporters need to be thinking now about what to do then, else we'll just have 2016 all over again. Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Premature triumphalism is the enemy.
This is quite a good essay... Pete Buttegieg's award winning high school essay in praise of political authenticity... whose primary subject is, wait for it, Bernie Sanders. https://www.jfklibrary.org/learn/education/profile-in-courage-essay-contest/past-winning-essays/2000-winning-essay-by-peter-buttigieg
I've only posted about this followers-only so far, but I'm probably going to lose my job (and so need to move, because my job is as the on-sitemanager for an apartment building)
I'd like to transition to doing remote writing (I have professional experience), but also, focus more on providing decolonal actions and education.
I need y'all's help for that. If you can, consider donating via https://emsenn.net/support/
The closer y'all get me to covering expenses, the more decolonial writing I can do!

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
