A! on nihilism 

"That impossible task set I share with you is the closest thing I would put forward as a recommended practice. A world-weary rebuilding of the very reasons we should do things together at all. A practice I am myself incapable of participating in because I have been broken by the same things as you. My mind is no longer limber enough to learn a new language. My heart is too scarred to do something so honest with a group of new people and too experienced to do it with the monsters I surround myself with (for other reasons). To go deep enough to subvert the conditioning and violence of this world is just impossible enough that I can imagine the kind of person who would attempt it but I have no idea what will result, even in a best case scenario."

I've got more takes, but I'll save them for later. I promise I'm nice, but I'm sure I can find something to piss off everyone eventually ;)

just as liberalized democracies removed regicide as a viable option to destabilize the existing order, decentralized technologies are more robust and therefore by default more resistant to social change

people who claim that good texts or ideas are better with obfuscated wording and jargon to force some level of investment to engage with them are just seeking ways to delude themselves into feeling smarter and/or cooler

any Revolution possible in this world, even an "anarchist" one, would suck

Show thread

things like antifa are popular on the left because it's easier to advocate physically attacking literal fascists than it is to interrogate the ways institutional and infrastructural racism continue to benefit you, despite the latter being far more impactful than chuds will ever be

"degrowth" is anti-civ for people who want to defund the police

Show thread

all positive projects are coping mechanisms. there is no path from "here" to "there", so all truly anarchist positions are destructive.

To break in this account, I'm gonna start off with some hot takes
