Tumblr's Anticapitalist Set Are So Stultifyingly Disingenuous

Like: These fuckers know that capital rents/yields accumulate faster than economic growth (or they should), they know that classism is a spectrum, and that there is an absolute minimum that people need to live on...

And yet they will continually go out of their way to justify their own middle-class lifestyles, when they could be living at the poverty line and saving the remainder for purposes of actually building some non-oppressive spaces and investment.

I guess worker ownership of the means of production is fine so long as everyone else pays for it, or if it's saved for a nebulous, utopian, 'after-the-revolution.' Attempting anything that would put someone eventually in the neighbourhood of working 12-hour graves at a convenience store that you own that pays all the workers a living wage, and tries to divest to all of them is a little too worker-owned for them.

What kind of praxis would it take to keep bad rumors, misinterpretation, and defamation from spreading?

I know I often misinterpret things…

It's an oldie but a goodie.

I'm Back!

Welcome back, Livejournal. After getting dragged away to the festering shithole that is tumblr, due to network effects, they've finally gone out of their way to make it easier for serial abusers to defame people with their new, 'improved' block function. The right of reply to publicly published, defamatory work, is gone.

Maybe we can fund a class-action via kickstarter and sue Yahoo's deep pockets into oblivion for all the rapists they're helping cover for, the abusers they're helping gaslight others with impunity, and just general shittyness involved in ensuring that those with the largest social networks can do the most harm with the fewest consequences.

Tumblr has always been neoliberal leftism at its most developed, now it's finally so odious that it's not worth it for me to participate, save to promote livejournal (which is kind of exactly how I got dragged into tumblr).
