I don't see why small businesses should get special treatment. If they can't pay for the software that is critical to their enterprise, they should go out of business. People make the same arguments about raising the minimum wage.

I've seen a lot of people become radicalized after engaging with electoral campaigns so I recognize the usefulness of that tactic, even if it's not for me and I have reservations about it. thanks for being open to criticism, I think that's really important for electoral activism

I don't think it's helpful to think in terms of grand narratives like that. There are injustices all around and ignoring, benefiting, or participating in them makes us complicit in different ways. I want to make the conditions around me better, not worse.

thanks for sharing your perspective. I have conflicting feelings on this, balancing harm reduction, the history of liberal co-option of left organizing, building a welfare state out of the material gains from colonialism, presiding over unreformable violent institutions

GitHub hosted a conference with a code of conduct prohibiting "behavior that would reasonably lead to another event participant being made to feel unsafe, insecure, or frightened"... and then invited representatives of ICE and Northrop Grumman to speak.

a code of conduct that values "diversity and inclusion" but is able to ignore violence and injustice so long as it is abstracted away through enough layers of indirection is at odds with its own goals. and it will get worse.

but also: airbnb is eating cities alive and fueling displacement. uber/lyft/taskrabbit/doordash/etc are creating a precariat of "contract workers" who get paid peanuts. tech hubs are fueling gentrification with it displacement and racialized policing

pretty bad look to be associated in any way with palantir, who are complicit in building tech for racialized policing, violence against immigrant communities, intelligence software used for drone bombings

this is unironically a great critique of electoral reformism under capitalism. we must dismantle the trap and distribute the cheese to all! rise up comrades!

completely behind banning white male gun ownership. maybe have some exception program (with a quota) if they take classes (renewed every year) in feminism and white supremacy. give the confiscated weapons to black and native groups as part of broader reparations

serious question: how can anyone who presides over a settler colonial state which itself a tool for class oppression possibly be an ally? aren't socdem reforms (which will be rolled back later) just a convenient release valve for class conflict?

all the presidential candidates have a basis, well worked out over the years, and that basis is the preservation of white supremacy and settler colonialism

challenging the commodity character of housing through policy changes (without necessarily spending any public money or changing tax rates) is a good place to start to actually make progress here, instead of constantly competing against global pools of speculative capital
