This is begging for a new age of piracy
I'm beginning to think my landlord has a different relationship with the rent payment than I do
We don’t currently have the entire @breakfastclubam interview on hand, but here is the revolutionary and liberatory bit that clearly struck a nerve with “the powers that be” within hip-hop. So proud of artists like @SaulWilliams who have been speaking truth to power for decades.
Fact checked this and it's real, so for over 100 years the science has been there and we've failed to act.
August 1912. This article is from a New Zealand newspaper and can be found in the National Library of NZ. It says that the world was emitting about 7Gt of CO2 annually which would raise global temperature due to the greenhouse effect. I wish all modern newspapers were that clear.
My morning routine is: - Wake up - Read news/hot takes in bed - Let the building anger get to the point where falling back to sleep is impossible - Get out of bed
The 75th anniversary of the #Thiaroye massacre: A group of Senegalese soldiers, after fighting to liberate France during WWII and surviving years in a German POW camp, demanded to be paid their wages. Instead, the French army shot them down. @VersoBooks
@JasonIsbell Old story: guy calls a plumber because his house is flooding. Plumber comes, looks at it, switches out a gasket, gives the guy a $500 bill. Guy: "$500 for replacing a gasket?" Plumber: "No. $500 for knowing which gasket to replace."

Gordon Sundland be like: “Quid pro quo? I thought y’all were saying ‘squid to go!’ I don’t even eat calamari. But if you’re asking if we were trying to bribe a foreign official and subvert democracy, then yes. My bad"
In a debate discussing Capitalism vs. Socialism, watch @profwolff remind Whole Foods CEO John Mackey exactly who he sold his company to.
@leashless @davelab6 A concrete example: industrial technology today is deeply shaped by the legacies of fordism. Fordism, on the other hand, is a strictly capitalist body of knowledge, senseless in societies that don't involve abstract labor time, production for surplus value, etc.
@leashless @davelab6 We know that in the unfolding historic dynamic of capital, problems arise that are internal to capitalism - problems of competition, market impasses, etc. Industrialization is a process of accumulating solutions to those problems as they arise.
@leashless @davelab6 The problem is that that question posits a category ("technically advanced society" meaning specifically industrial technology) as transhistoric - as a timeless abstraction away from any point in time or specific society. One has to ask: what justifies such an abstraction?
