If your positions is not an anti-capitalist position, you are colluding with this system that enslave, kills and destroy civilization and people.

When I began using computers, there was this thing called RSS.

That allows me to read things from your blog/site, without open it. It was good, because there plenty of implementations, and therefore I can read in multiple platforms and get away with things I don't want but could have on your website like tracking, ads, unwanted pop-ups, the ugly design of your blog and focus on what I (and you should) want on your blog/website:

your content, your message.

Please, have a RSS Feed

Due to China's law banning foreign funding of the Hong Kong protests, the US has now openly admitted to funding the Hong Kong protests and has been forced to freeze $2 million in planned payouts to Hong Kong "democracy" protest groups.

Imagine trying to abolish human exploitation and get into a more human, sustainable and fair world, collectively built by people who do most of the dirty work and being told constantly that this is garbage or it doesn't matter, never going to work, even though you add historical and rigorous and scientific analysis on top of that.

What an awful world we're in aren't we?
