@feld Now that is a question that is hard to answer, what I can say is that the neoliberal #deathcult we have currently is not going to save us. #XR movement in the UK highlights this, we are likely to move to social democracy or fascism in the UK over the next few years. I don't think either of those can save us. so it's an open question we currently do not have an answer too. I champion a move away from the #dotcons back onto the openweb as a #stepway project, my small part..
@feld Am actually saying the capitalist economy is a deeply unhealthy #deathcult and Musk and his private/public state enterprises are clear to see simption of this. His projects we keep feeding on public subsidies which I have nothing against. But as you say it's billed as “healthy capitalist economy” which as the article points out it is not my problem.
@feld just do a search, here is a link to start you off https://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-hy-musk-subsidies-20150531-story.html #state socialisam for the #dotcons and a #deathcult for the rest of us.
Was on the phone for 4 hours, pushed it up 4 levels to a hardcore persion who offered half the amount the lower levels had offerd, but never implemented, and threatened us with a long arbitration process if we did not agree #deathcult

#ExtinctionRebellion isn't perfect, but it's got the UK government to declare a climate emergency in a few short weeks.
Get involved, challenge peoples ideas, think of actions people of colour and other groups vulnerable to police can join. Tangential nonviolent actions are always good! We have our last chance to stop the worst of climate disaster right now. Every other injustice will be worse because of climate breakdown.

- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.
We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.
This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.
Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.
We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.
