The life that society offers us is not a full, free and joyful life. It is a crushed, mutilated, humiliated life. We must refuse it.

Just a quick thought: #Subtitles are important. Those folks that like uploading stuff on #Peertube, please write subs for your vids. There are people with hearing problems etc. that rely on those. Fediverse can't be written without diverse part. There are good programs for that like Gaupol https://otsaloma.io/gaupol/ or, if you upload both on peertube and youtube, you can at least download automatic subs from yt, they're getting pretty fine for what they worth.

Do other people find significance in the content of their dreams (the sleep-time ones including nightmares)? And how so?

I tried to post asking y’all for advice but when I started typing out my feelings, I talked myself out of saying it out loud all the way… I even laughed at myself. Funny that.

Aid posting (again, sorry), please boost 

Hey all, once again my flatmate and I are stuck with no decent food to eat in the house and no money for food to eat, we've exhausted both of our bank accounts completely, and there's not a lot else we can really do for the next couple of days until I get a universal credit payment (which i think is on friday). My paypal and ko-fi links are on my profile, thanks for any help you can give us.

cheapest option I could find for a round trip ticket to make court is 136. One of the people I got arrested with during the action is offering to help pay for it but that still leaves me on the line for rent and food, plus idk how much they’re offering to help with

If you’d like to help a black trans nb anarchist survive and not become a starving homeless fugitive here’s my info:

Pacifiers 

When I was older, I found the box of paci’s at moms house and laughed a bit. But it reminds me that. there never were any kids waiting for my paci. There wasn’t any joy under that white tree for a black girl like me. There is no Santa. I guess I was just “good for goodness sake” whatever that means. It reminds me not to be at peace with lies. It reminds me to ask questions first. It reminds me that even if they try to take something from me in this world, I never needed it anyway.

All for what? I reckon Santa Claus in some ways. I mean someone has to employ all the elves. What would they do without the work of making stuff? It makes sense that Santa and his capitalist buddies would want to keep the status quo by pacifying us so we don’t call out. So we don’t scream! It makes sense to keep telling us things will get better if we just keep working and being nice. And good. Pacify.

Pacifiers 

It is our world. It is the world where we tell kids and adults alike that they must behave quietly at all times or else. To keep ourselves and each other from screaming out, we use things like fidget spinners, pay-for-behaviour sticker charts, milestones, degrees, graduations, performance reviews, promotions, cost of living increases, so-called progress, changing from within, steps in the right direction, etc… Pacify.

I mean, in what kind of sick, twisted world is it nice to tell your kids that a grown man who lives entirely off slave labour of people smaller than himself has them under constant surveillance and based on their ability to obey without crying or pouting or shouting… chooses to punish them or reward them with trinkets… pacify.
