People say things like “greed is human nature so communism can never work”, and I disagree. I think helping others and working toward self-fulfillment is human nature, and capitalism is an enemy of that.

Thread on #type1 optout for the NHS data grab in England. The deadline is August, but you might want to do is ASAP.
---
RT @EinsteinsAttic
A couple of things to note:

1) @NHSDigital has now confirmed that the deadline to do a #Type1 opt out *to your GP* is 25 August 2021. (Uploads begin on 1 September.)

2) "100,000 national data opt-outs" in May *alone* is just the tip of the iceberg...

@Stoori Wow, at last Ive found someone making a comment about the demanding of pronouns! (In your bio).
This has long baffled me and as Im not in anyway involved in the LGBQT world. I have little understanding of why people put this in their bio's and profiles, beyond perhaps being tired of being referred to as something they feel they're not.
Why do people do this? Surely idiots will be idiots regardless and others mean no harm if they get things wrong. Or am I missing something?

There is no really ethical consumerism under capitalism. Do enough investigation and you will always find someone being horribly exploited, stolen land or resources and unsustainable ecologically unsound practises.

Some decisions are better than others, but ultimately it's all murky and you can't buy a clean conscience under the existing economic system.

Taxing the rich fairly seems to upset only the rich. Eat them.

Btw for those of you using the new firefox you can turn off the fat, mobile tabs by disabling "browser.proton.enabled" in about:config

uspol, pig capitalism, - 

the annoying thing about living in the US is that your neighbors will literally pay jeff bezos to be surveilled, and then you can't go for a fucking walk without there being footage of you 'in the cloud' or whatever the fuck

Having now got the latest Firefox redesign update, that I was concerned would really annoy me like so many other things Mozilla do, I see it is only mildly irritating and more so because they could have used their time and energy to do more important things. Meh!

A reminder that if you have Amazon hardware, you will be automatically be enrolled in Sidewalk which shares your internet connection with neighbors unless you opt out (which they don't make it easy to do). arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/0

Or better yet, stop using their hardware. Period.
