I saw an anti-vaxx flyer somebody had put up on the main street of my town.
I dithered a bit -- usually I just ignore peoples' shitty opinions -- but nobody was looking so I thought, fuck it, and I took the flyer down.
Believe the moon landing was faked or the queen of England is a lizard person all you want, I don't care, but anti-vaxx makes me REALLY angry. You're spreading lies that get children killed. You're literally fighting for Team Measles against Team Humanity.
The best propaganda is the propaganda you don't notice. Which is why you need to mute and block any/all commercials. Don't just ignore it. They're chipping away at you.
If you can't mute, reply to it. Yes, talk to the tv. Make the fearmongering sound silly, aggressively regect the rhetorical questions, groan when a man is useless at housework. Get the whole car/house in on it.
"Remove Richard Stallman"
CW: child abuse, rape, and other upsetting topics
Richard Stallman, Rape Apologist
Please pay attention to the propaganda! Do not applaud people surviving in this dystopia! Instead burn down the dystopia!
Simjacker – abusing the S@T Browser to track phones:
– it requires the S@T Browser on the targeted phone, and a mobile operator allowing special SMS
– many details are missing
– mobile operators can remotely uninstall S@T Browser; so this perfectly shows that you can't "take back control" of your phone by just installing some LineageOS on it
Violence is not just hitting someone in the face. Violence is passing legislation and policies to deny a sick persons access to healthcare. Violence is removing peoples autonomy and the ability to have safe abortions. Violence is removing funding for food programs that help feed the starving. Violence is dismantling housing and aid programs that help the homeless. Violence is sanctions placed on "third world" nations leading to starvation and death. Violence is the criminalization of drug use. Violence is discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender or lack thereof, race, ability, or age. Violence isn't just throwing fists or shooting people. Violence has evolved with our society to be far more cunning, shifting and bureaucratic than that.
Removing someones ability to hand out harm reduction services to help prevent overdoses and the spread of disease in their neighborhood is inherently an act of violence.
A culture founded in constant competition breeds isolation, nurtures anti-social behavior, and ingrains a mindset of scarcity in children. It devalues necessary life skills like cooperation, communication, selflessness, empathy, and community building. You’re essentially building a population devoid of the tools to function healthily in a basic society.
