The world is broken. Liberal Capitalism is trying to push back into mainstream mindspace and failing. The rightwing nutters with zero mortality are swamping them. The left is still a fraction.
The core issue is private ownership of data.
* The liberal capitalists apply “legal” DRM which is a digital fiction and dead end.
* The nutter right are corporatist walking directly to digital apartheid/political fascism.
* The left are irrelevant.
The answer is simple #4opens leading to a data commons. BUT this leads directly to a revolution of what it means to be human thus few people talk about it.
Message from a lifeboat near the end of the world #boatingeurope
As far back as 1982, fossil fuel executives knew they were trading a few…
Q. I notice you have used the #deathcult hashtag a few times recently on posts about capitalism, neo-liberalism and green consumerism, so I thought I would look it up. Wikipedia says that Death Cult may refer to an early name for the British rock band The Cult or a compilation album featuring all the songs from Death Cult. Under “See also” it links to the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex (also known as the Southern Death Cult), and to Southern Death Cult as yet another name for the band. Finally it says it is used as a synonym for the term “destructive cult”.
Destructive cults are described in the Wikipedia entry for Cult as “groups whose members have, through deliberate action, physically injured or killed other members of their own group or other people”. John Gordon Clark cited totalitarian systems of governance and an emphasis on money making as characteristics of a destructive cult.
Q. Hamish just loves a hashtag! Once he gets his hands on one he uses it until it falls apart.
A. The idea is to spread um so that they join the mainstream discussion and then becomes the mainstream. Simple idea, very hard for #stupidindividualism #fashernistas to actually do anything so simple. Much like #steppingaway from the #dotcons is simple #OMN One can but keep trying, while sailing away on a lifeboat #boatingeurope
Q. I am beginning to suspect you are getting money each time you mention one of these 😉
A. Sadly not, though when i recommend stuff on my blog i anyways put an affiliate link, more outa curiosity to see if it works than any income. Think the is a little money in a paypal account which i have lost the PW and can’t reset die to old phone number 😉
A. #hashtags click on um, search the web with um, use them to create conversations across the #dotcons and out onto the #openweb its a little stepway that is easy to do. Its a shame about #stupidindividualism #fashionistas that they can’t be a part of this #stepaway its basic stuff.
A. Of course neo-liberal Capitalism was always a #deathcult just now with #XR its kinda ok to say this. A good example to give people is the Irish potato famine as we are likely to repeat this soon with climate change hitting industrial agriculture. We really don’t want to be in the dogmatic neo-liberal world when this hits as were then, lots of death and despair to go around.
From the #dotcons
“Thrown into the mix are the US Evangelical Christians who are waiting for Armageddon, the End Times, and the Second coming of Christ, and who welcome climate change catastrophe as a confirmation of their twisted beliefs.
The only time – to my knowledge – that I was ever unfriended on Facebook was by an Evangelical Christian Zionist, now living in the USA, who was offended by my posts showing The Israeli military bombing the hell out of civilians in Gaza. It confused me at the time, but I only recently found out that Jews returning to Israel is also a ‘sign’ of the approaching End Times for those Christian Fundamentalists.
It really is a death cult. US Republicanism, especially in its Christian Fundamentalist form, is a death cult of the most dangerous kind, and is without doubt the greatest obstacle to the continued existence of life on Planet Earth.”
I wish the spiky/anarchists would slow down the flow of piss on #XR and do something useful themselves, its a bad look pissing on social change from outside. As far as i can see activism has been a fuckup since ocuppy etc. Past time the spikeys did something other than talk, says the man sailing away on a lifeboat
Now keep it focused
Best not to point links at the conspiracy loons, post screen captures if you need to. Don’t feed the trolls #XR
The plan to get people to post good fluff/spiky outreach videos to celebrate/connect activist history to the current #XR groups is not working, the image is of the viewing figures for the last 48hours, just 12 views for one of the videos. If you want to help make this move http://hamishcampbell.com/…/anarchists-please-stop-the-sni…/
Q. You have been saying this over and over for the last few years and railing against the mysterious #fashernistas. And what plan did you announce this week? To start your own YouTube channel! “Physician heal thyself” seems an appropriate comment …
A. Nothing wrong in having one foot in a each camp, have been saying this for years. “Stepaway” is the strategy to try and medate the moralistic shaming that is not constructive. Am still talking about seedboxs for #peertube and the #geekproblem that stops this obviously needed, being a priority http://visionon.tv works as a video host but we have no distributed way to store the seed files… so not an option. Thus the youtube channel for #boatingeurope Of course would need one even if #peertube had seedbox’s to keep one foot in the #dotcons to offer a helping hand to people who won’t to septaway. Good to think these things through.
Ps. Am gently takeing the piss by calling it a #fashernista movement, but if you look at people’s consumption of #mainstreammedia it looks very much like people like drinking piss so maybe its not a joke?
Now that is a “shaming” thought…
Since we left London that we have been roughly marking on a map our overnight stops. It’s not graphically amazing but does give an idea on how far we got! Since we left London we’ve done 2750km on European Inland Waterways to Vienna on 8 different rivers and 17 canals throughout 3 countries. We’ve passed 498 locks, 5 lift bridges and 3 tunnels. We’ve moored at pirate moorings, free town walls or to other boats 70% of the times, in marinas 20% and at anchor 10% and we’ve filled up our diesel tank 3 times only! #themanwhoboughtalifeboat #boatinacrosseurope #boatingeurope #documentary #maps #journey #europeinlandwaterways #lifeboat #liveaboard #refurbished #compactliving #slowliving #travelgram #england 🇬🇧 #france🇫🇷 #germany🇩🇪 #austria🇦🇹 #thamesriver #englishchannel #frenchcanals #rhineriver #mainriver #maindonaukanal #danuberiver
