America is the only exceptional in that all issues will never have to be truly dealt with because there is always infinite pleasure - be it westward expansion or the fruits of imperialism. You don't have to deal with the natural dialectal contradictions that come with having a society because you can always push people somewhere else. Even the gigantic empires of Europe had to deal with the contradictions in their own society and they fucking blew up twice. But this infinity was never made to last, and now America actually has to deal with its own contradictions

Acute feelings of "worker alienated from their work" this month, in retrospect.

What in the world did my teammate do to have over 500 unread emails? I haven't received even a hundred emails on these client-specific accounts and I was here first!

Me: I think I'll make a visual novel!

Also me: *commissions and writes over 65k words of prose for the game without realizing it*

Still me: I wonder why it's taken so long to finish producing this visual novel...

Okay, so objectively, the Asphodel Meadows are a miserable place to spend eternity. On the other hand, I think the ancient Greeks really underestimated the appeal of microdosing the Lethe every time I remember saying “thanks, you too!” to an usher telling me to enjoy the movie

All source code of abandoned software should be open sourced. Manufacturers should be forced to do so on the end of service date.

i don't think it's really fair that consumers get the blame for "disposability culture" or "throwaway culture" or whatever you want to call it when most stuff is made as cheaply as possible and absolutely *not* built to be easily repaired.

Normalize talking about how much you're paid with your co-workers.

It is the only way people will truly realize the income disparity between themselves and their just-as-qualified queer and/or BIPoC friends and colleagues.

This should be normal in ever industry. The fact it isn't is actively aiding executives in systemically discriminating against minority groups.

reading the societal tea leaves and thinking VCs want everyone to learn to code so it can be a cottage industry, piecework that the women are expected to do at home in between raising the kids, like weaving and candle making or whatever. they want to break the labor power of coding on the twin wheels of replaceability and obfuscated employee/employer relations, same as they did with couriers and cabbies
