The only legitimate use of force is in defense of individual rights — life, liberty, and justly acquired property — against aggression.

Do you agree?

this story is so funny:

> woman wants to swap apartments
> only with other women
> syrian refugee writes her
> she write back 'only for women'
> he keeps mailing
> she answers 'fuck allah, leave me alone'
> the guy presses charges, wins
> she has to pay 1000 euro or go to prison
> chooses prison
> gets there, in her passport it says "male" (an error)
> prison people are like "well facts don't matter, it says male so your going to male prison"
> take her to male prison
> clear up a whole cell block because she is clearly female
> gets treated like a princess because she's the only one there, and that for a stupid reason

thank you for reading my blog post.

Pokud před sebou máme jenom tyto možnosti, tak na tom nejsme úplně dobře. Nebyl by přece jenom lepší systém, kde nikdo nemá pravomoc rozhodovat o životě kohokoliv jiného?

if you are a gamedev, indie developer or whatever and thought about registering on , I recommend not doing so. the guy(s) hosting this instance blocked my instance because I asked why was blocked. a simple question, instant block. I still got no answer, so in case you get any problems, or more precisely: they get problems with you, they will probably just block you as well, without any chance to solve whatever the actual problem is. people so uncommunicative and ignorant shouldn't be responsible for hosting a platform for your games.

>Who wants you dead?
>THAT GUY over there!

>But what did he said or did to you?
>He said he is in favor of FREE SPEECH!
>Well... i don't think...

If this does seem ridiculous to you, be aware that some people really think that it does make sense to react like this.
>google bans the gab app, despite it just being a tusky fork or something
What does this mean for every other fedi app? Is this some longwinded way of forcing them all the block gab? If this happens, how long until google makes a list of unacceptable instances all clients must block?

What climate change crisis is really about. Spoiler : it's not the climate.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff recently admitted that the Green New Deal was not conceived as an effort to deal with climate change, but instead a “how-do-you-change-the-entire economy thing”

#uspol #power #control

The #Tusky people seems to be unhappy about #TuskyUncensored to be a GPL-compliant software so they can not report it for GPL violation.

And they are reporting #Mastodon client that works with #newgab for Google Play policy violation.

I am just a Chinese guy living in Japan, I have not been to the fucking America yet. Being born in China, I know the importance of absolute free speech is so much more important than difference between left and right.

All Japanese Mastodon clients are not blocking #Gab, including Subway Tooter by Mr.Tateisu, a very well made client with support for push notification with FCM, which #Tusky refuse to implement.

Also made by Mixi K.K. in Japan.

You guys should really try to take down those #WhiteSupremacist #Nazi apps made by Japanese right?

Thank those people in the #Tusky Team (mostly white) trying to force us, the coloured developers in Asia to comply with their view of #AmericanPolitics. Such an excellent way to combat #AmericanExceptionalism and #WhiteSupremacism .

@espectalll The admin world of mastodon really is pure cancer tbh. It's mostly just butthurt people who want to bulk-block absolutely everything for the smallest offense.

I can't view them as anything other than control freaks who want to micromanage their whole social network experience to fit their wishes.

I'm with Angristan in the fact that I believe the purpose of the fediverse is to give control to users, so they can do what they want.

But good lord there's so many instances out there that just mass block and then users from these instances go around parading that you're a shitty admin because you don't block instances like others did, even though they're not even a member of your instance.

People are free to create whatever instances they want, but you'd be amazed how many instances out there don't even inform users what instances are blocked or why, and how many of them are just admins getting drunk on power.

But really the worst part about being an admin is getting hordes of people who call you a nazi just because you refuse to block <insert any instance that's been politically relevant in the past 30 minutes>.

Gab hot take:
People talking to each other is much better situation than people fighting each other.

I've watched Snowpiercer. It didn't make any sense, but it still was entertaining.

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Unless you're specifically targeting people who literally cannot read...

@cereal the Paradox of Tolerance is a fallacy. A tolerant society allows (tolerates) non-coercive actions, and forbids coercive ones (violence, direct threats of violence, fraud).

"The Paradox of Tolerance" is a bad excuse used to label a non-coercive action as "intolerant" (like having the wrong opinions) to justify using coercive action (violence) to be intolerant toward it, to supposedly protect tolerance from intolerance.

The two fatal problems with the concept:

1) what is intolerant is subjective, allowing anyone at anytime to be labeled intolerant.
2) it escalates from non-violence to violence, and the most intolerant one wins in a "might makes right" kind of way.

It's as fucked up of a concept as "freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from consequences". It's an axiom, that if followed by all, would result in the most intolerant society possible.
