Teenage Halloween - Teenage Halloween
Twitter is actively making money from your tweets, your engagement, and just the fact that your eyeballs are looking at their screen. Stop making twitter money. Stop tweeting, delete your account. Every time you post a clever thought on twitter people are making money off of it. Stop making other people money for free.
A thing Ive been thinking about wrt leaving the twitternet.
It really shows how much people's real social networks shrink due to doing more socialization on social media. Like I have a lot of friends Ive broken contact with over the years simply because one or both of us decided to stop using that platform for whatever reason unrelated to our friendship.
Long book quote
"61. I feel cold.
I am not going to deny that I feel cold in order to feel warm.
I am going to first, fully accept and understand that what I am feeling is cold.
That it is okay to feel cold.
I am sitting on a roof in the wind.
I am not wearing a jacket.
It makes sense that I feel cold in this situation.
Am I satisfied in my coldness, or do I have a need that is not being met?
I discover, I am dissatisfied. I have a need that is not being met.
What do I need?
I need warmth.
Then I am going to do something to warm myself.
What can I do to warm myself?
Replace “cold” with “sad.”
Replace “cold” with “lonely.”
Replace “cold” with “oppressed.”
But how is this possibly a how-to guide for anarchist policy?
62. Anarchism is that which emerges naturally without exterior direction or control.
I cannot tell you what it looks like.
That is the entire point.
As wholly unsatisfying as that may be, it is the only anarchist way of imagining anarchism.
63. If what is needed is freedom, my action becomes freedom.
If what is needed is love, my action becomes love.
If what is needed is revolution, my action becomes revolution.
How do I know what is needed?
I know what I feel.
If what I feel is cold, and what I need is to find warmth, my action becomes finding warmth.
64. Anarchist action is acting to serve nothing but the needs created by feelings, and not holding to any idea of what each means. Fuck your Rational Self Interest. As if Interest were rational. So often it is physical, biological, intuitive, emotional, psychological, spiritual.
And all of those are just labels to tear the fuck off, because what use do they do anyone?
That is it. I can be certain of nothing beyond my immediate sensation.
When you feel powerless, you are.
When you feel sad, you are.
When you feel happy, you are.
When you feel free, you are.
When you allow yourself to feel whatever it is you feel, you give yourself the ultimate freedom.
When you choose to act as you would in each moment, you rule the only power that can ever rule you.
I don’t know what that looks like for you, for society, for anyone.
I only know how I feel.
65. For me, anarchist activism IS the lack of plan.
The un-rigid law, the way that exists in a hundred thousand forms because its essence is flux.
You are never not doing it.
Your rigidity, your definitions, your shoulds and shouldn’ts, these are the only things standing in your own way. "- The Anarcho-Taoist Manifesto
popular legitimacy is in fact very important for statecraft because in a real sense "the state" doesn't exist, it is only a collective delusion whose duties and roles are carried out by believers, or by people who participate only because of threats administered by believers. but if the ratios of belief, doubt, passive non-participation, evasion, and hostility change beyond a dynamic threshold, the whole collective delusion can fall apart
Wanna be homeless but I love furniture too much
My 'ripoff senses' going crazy every time I look at a place to move to. Like this house sucks, you are asking for too much money, I should not have to pay several hundred dollars in fees so that YOU can sit back and collect my rent money for the next year. Renting feels like a scam because it is a scam. I want out.
You aren't "mildly autistic" or "high-functioning autistic", you are just autistic as any other autistic person. If you genuinely believe those terms have merit you've sipped some allist koolaid; Autism isn't a contest and the popular interpretation of the "autism spectrum" is bullshit. It's not a spectrum of severity, it's a spectrum of potential effects and manifestations of autism.
