Even though I am not too convinced by #religion being an #ideology, I am very fond of this passage of my Modern Sociology notes. I love you, #Marx ❤️

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

Even if Elon doesn't end up buying Tw*tter I am staying here.

I love it here. It feels like home. I have found a family 💚

Ultimately, no animals were injured. 

A queen ant decided to nest in the remains of yesterday's noodles. Luckily for her, I didn't bother warming the noodles, and I noticed her while I was eating. She crawled out of the pile of noodles like some Jon Snow in the Battle of the Bastards. I sent her back out into freedom, and am now trying to finish my noodles...

Contemplating what moral luck means for autonomy and state authority.

The EU Commission is planning automatic CSAM scanning of your private communication – or total surveillance in the name of child protection. This would be the worst surveillance apparatus outside of China:

EU folks, the latest @EU_Commission proposal for scanning private communications and undermining end-to-end encryption is an extreme threat to privacy.

It threatens the right to meaningful encryption and would force your communications to be subject to scanning and classification by AI outside of your control. Truly dystopian shit.

This won't become law without the EU parliament's assent, so please follow this closely and speak up. See EDRI's analysis here:

Eurovision, Ukraine, Russian invasion 

It would be ironic if the organisation which finally spurred the West to help #Ukraine kick out their Russian invaders wasn't the UN, wasn't NATO, but was the European Broadcasting Union... #Eurovision

En godt bevart hemmelighet er at man kan låne mini-kinosal med plass til 20 på Deichman-biblioteket i Bjørvika. Faktisk ganske kult!

Alright, numbers are the content of a make-believe game wins? "Absurd!" I hear you shout! But no, the things of the natural world are but props that help instantiate your representation of the number game. Just like the wooden sticks a child plays with are props that instantiate the content of her ninjas fighting pirates game, duh!

Which fediverse software do you use, boost for scale.

I came across my beloved while exploring instances. I find the peertube instances in general to be a real mixed bag though..

One argument here is quite interesting if it could be formalized using Cantor's diagonal argument. The idea being that the various reasonable positions that can be held on a given issue will vastly outnumber the number of candidates that can represent each issue.

"In Defense of Anarchism" by Robert Paul Wolff. As he states in the preface to the 1998 edition: "The premise of the book was quite indisputable: Each of us has an overriding obligation to be morally autonomous; and the conclusion was quite
outrageous: A morally legitimate state is a logical impossibility."
