@x Honestly, for some weird reason people always complain the same stuff. This sort of comment I made is never related to do something for learning. Reinventing the wheel is good, except if you're reinventing the wheel to do the same mistakes, the same approach etc. This isn't remotely about porting code as well

I think the same idea goes into FOSS projects.

Instead of inventing a new thing, using the same stupid approach with a new name, why don't you just help to improve the ones that are exists?

Instead of inventing a new movement based on zero material knowledge you can join an actual factual movement based on organization and serious theoretical literature about it.

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.

We must look at the actual substance, interests, & class nature of the Hong Kong protests and not be misled by surface-level aesthetics & language meant to obscure the imperialist interests that the protests serve

@melissasage @wintgenstein Nice them, I think is not available here on Brazil yet, but I'll look for it. Thanks!

@wintgenstein Bell hooks is amazing.

I'm currently experimenting with my first black and white film on my SLR (a Pentax KM).

I'm really looking forward to seeing the results

This week I'm getting my hands on my very first rangefinder (I've sent to CLA).

A Canonet QL17 (first generation).

Will load a Ilford HP5 on it.

Just a little reminder that Ecosocialism is more than relevant in times of COVID-19, neoliberalism crisis around the world and intensification of the class struggle.

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?
