He refuses to be anti-capitalist. Even though that’s the only logical conclusion he can’t say that capitalism is the problem because he “can’t be political”. Instead, he says they have a poor business model and rely on donations. The real problem is requireing a business model. He can’t question the fact of having a business model and making money in the first place because you need that to survive under capitalism and that is an accepted as a “default axiom”. That’s “the trashcan of ideology”.

It’s the same for matrix and signal. They’re both conpanies, but people say “that’s ok” or “there’s no problem”. But they don’t realize that is the problem.

I didn’t like matrix because of the company behind it and crypto connections. I was battered before and slowly started to accept it. Thankfully, I see more people who share my view and I’ll continue continue to try to push for XMPP.

u/gokette you should crosspost this to c/ontario

Here’s the website where you can find information on the stay-at-home order. There is also a note of extention along with the original declaration. You should check here for future updates, to confirm with news sources.



Not more evil government lockdown!

Why don’t the so-called “freedom loving conservatives” prevent Ford acting like tyrannical Trudeau.



For real now. I’m surprised he is extending it given his record of flip flopping. Must either be real bad or other people are kinda forcing him to heed advice.

Yes, the “great reset”.

Where you own nothing and rent everthing from the communists. You think that communists oppose rent and SaaS? Well, that’s where you’re wrong. They’re comming for your toothbrush.


Here’s a compilation of sources on the idea fron the World Economic Forum and commentary on the root of the hysteria from someone who’s not a nutjob. (Link: https://justinhonse.medium.com/does-the-great-reset-really-mean-ill-own-nothing-79ec55b98809)

Praise be to the invisible hand of the free market.

This is good. Professional accountability is important to both the profession and the public.

Thank for explaining your thought process. I perticularily like point #3 about still freely distrubuting derived works even if others are selling it comercialy and with SA people can still be directed to you, I haven’t considered that myself.

For point #2, I can definately see where you’re coming from. I always saw NC licences as “I want this to be anti-commercial” rather than “pay me royalties”, but that’s just my bias and I didn’t think of it differently until you pointed it out, thank you for that and I’ll keep that in mind.

I’m totally on board with you on the problem with so-called “intelectual property”. Thank you for sharing how you’re takling the problem. I definately appreciate it.

It’s not just O’Toole. A few years a ago the headline was O’Reily and then Doug. It’s the Conservative Party now. It’ll be better to convince family, friends and neighbours. The tories don’t care about humans, only power. So the goal should be to deny them power as oposed to reforming them.

Why isn’t “based in a tax haven” enough? Why does it also have to be “linked to China” (please read that in Trump’s voice) for it to ilicit a response?


But, I want something more permanent. Unforerunately, during the early neoliberal period a bunch our stuff was privatized. Also when the crown corporations existed labour tensions still existed. I would like to see this stuff as being part of our constitution and make it unconstitutional to privatize it and have worker management as part of the organization as opposed to having management appointed by parliamentary comittee to avoid politicaly charged appointments.

It looks good. It needs to include operating costs though.

“Experts” are called “experts” for a reason, well at least some of them. What I mean by that is that they are professionals who have dedivoted their lives, yet people decide to listen to business “experts” (here I use air quotes for the perpose of deminishing the word) rather than trained professionals who are mentioned in headlines as “experts” due to the word having fewer characters.

Obviously talking with hindsight here, if only other people held the same position, we would’ve not been decimated by the 3rd wave.

How does federation on lemmy work?

I cannot see posts from lemmy.ml. I only see a few but not a lot. When I go to https://lemmy.ca/community/2573, for example I don’t see any posts however when I go to https://lemmy.ml/c/embedded_prog, while not logged in because …

https://liberapay.com/ It’s like Patreon, but community funded and not owned by a for-profit corporation. Instead, it’s a non-profit based in France and does not take any cuts of any donations and relies on people donating to the project on the platform itself.

Also, why CC-BY-SA instead of CC-BY-NC-SA? If you’re not selling them and publish under a commercial friendly license you open yourself to commercial exploitation where other entities can sell your work on the market without compensating you. The Creative Common’s Non-Commercial license does not restrict any specific licenses you may draw up with clients.

Since you’re a cooperative, have you looked into the Peer Productions License?
