My child decided to watch Sofia the First today.

All it has done is make me dislike royalty and wealth even more.

To put ut bluntly having only NPR as the non GOP news radio really blows.

Leftists should also work harder to adopt more FOSS software and re-adopt resilient technologies like newsgroups, BBS, ham radio, copper wire telephone.

Show thread

So, places leftists need to look hard to gaining ground on are journalism outlets (the more local, the better) with audio and video components (and, no offense to the journo collectives like UR... But a name people might take seriously would be helpful).

- A minor play is being made in video, it's mostly youtube channels and meanstv streaming.
- Leftist podcasts exist but the majority fall under the umbrella of "audio shitposting".
- Leftists have abandoned OTA radio (AM/FM) for the most part and completely abandoned FOTATV.

Show thread

Interesting observations:
- Corporate software continues to be the go-to for leftists vs. FOSS (Mastodon, Diaspora, Linux, XMPP, Matrix, PGP, etc.)
- Leftists also largely abandoned print journalism (Opinion magazines aren't journalism).

Separating this one out because a lot comes from him. A major influence on my politics. Worthy of being listed in the large.

I think Left Twitter could seriously do well trying less to be funny (it usually fails), less to be sarcastic (ages like bread), and less trying to pretend they're the gatekeeper of whatever leftism they subscribe to (literally the opposite of being a leftist)... But that just me

What's next is Balkanization on a scale and scope that has not been seen before, with bloodshed and violence unmatched in history. The right desire nothing less than total annihilation of their political enemies and the creation of a Protestant Christian Kingdom.

Even State Governments and Local Governments have gone gangrene.

A city can't even do trash collection without it ending in a heated battle.

Neoconservatives and neoliberals have successfully killed the United States.

Show thread

Or if Biden gets it and does as well.

I think people need to seriously accept the fact that this country is dead as a sovereign nation. The Federal Government had stopped functioning a long time ago. It's basically brain dead, but the organs still work because they don't yet kno

Yo... So anyone still thinking that, like Election Day this year is going to be normal or mean anything isn't paying attention. That doesn't mean don't vote, but it does mean perhaps stop caring about it. It doesn't really matter at this point whether 45 succumbs to COVID...

Thoughts and Prayers for the President and First Lady in these trying times.
