policy thinking is a kind of power fantasy where you get to think of yourself as the legislator with the most profound, wise, and just policy preferences. but these hypothetical preferences are meaningless and obscure and misdirect from the real life choices that are actually available. individual choices and action are ironically dismissed with "unrealistic" or "unimportant" or "not everyone can do X" which misses how life is built from the bottom-up through millions of acts of participation, refusal, and evasion.

accepting that you are a nobody, with no stake or allegiance to this society or its proxies, to live an authentic life of your choosing, however "unimportant", "unrealistic", or context-specific

FOSS stans have off the charts levels of liberal democracy brain worms. Calling for completely volunteer-driven alternatives to web browsers, social media, etc—which tech giants fund for millions+ a year—while the web turns into into nothing more than a few duopolies (Google/Amazon, Facebook/Twitter, etc) takes such an appalling level of naïveté.

Anyway vote pirate party!! The web is for everyone!!1
