It’s actually sort of nice sitting here on a platform that lacks that sort of central authority.

He might be. That’s the other reason why we have to protect the kooks, because the world isn’t a movie and sometimes reality is unrealistic. A lot of “crazy conspiracy theories” turned out to be totally true.

Lindell is a kook.

But he’s a kook who is fully allowed to be a kook. Being a kook needs to be protected, because if you are punished for being a kook, then that’s where the line is, and suddenly something that isn’t being a kook is on the borderline, and then we decide that isn’t acceptable either, and soon you’re well outside the realm of being a kook, vanilla attitudes are not acceptable because we allowed that kook to get punished for holding unacceptable opinions.

Landlines aren’t digital radio devices with an IP network stack for handling compressed digital audio. Landline technology was developed 50 years before the invention of the microchip.

Creepy, mopey, and Kain from Legacy of Kain

In my mind, a cell phone has always been a complicated thing that needed a CPU, not something you could potentially put together with a little 8 bit microcontroller running at a few kilohertz.

Trudeau should shut down their bank accounts, since that’s what free countries do to protesters.

Just fact checked myself, I’m wrong. Sorry, didn’t realize it was another instance.

Communism is anti-democracy, maga isn’t…

“communism is anti-war”

Only after literally conquering the entire world. I don’t think that’s really the definition of anti-war.

The fact that the phone appears to run off a microcontroller is sort of mind blowing.

The lady seemed sort of odd at first, but the whole thing is pretty cool, and it looks like she’s manufacturing a lot of it herself.


Kid Rock looks his age, but he’s based. I think he’d be fun to get drunk with.

Assuming “SW” means sex worker.

Honestly, don’t contact people’s jobs. It’s a shitty thing to do whatever reason you don’t like some rando on the Internet.

That being said, decisions have consequences, and showing your butthole in a fursuit on the Internet isn’t a great way to keep a day job.

Now trans women can appreciate the joys of stillbirth.

That’s an odd fetish, but you do you.

I saw my son at 10 weeks, and it was a reality check on abortion for me.

The reality is that you’re killing a person because they’re inconvenient.

Some people are OK with that. But myself, I don’t want to be a part of that. The duty then falls on the parents to not get pregnant if they don’t want a child.


The idea that these people think they’re on the right side of history is I think the craziest part.


If this were happening to me, I'd be so livid I don't know what I'd do. They'd better hope they can resolve it in court with a huge cash settlement, because they wouldn't like the next step.

Pierre Poilievre won the conservative leadership in Canada tonight
It wasn't even close, 68%. Poilievre supported the trucker convoy, is explicitly anti WEF, and is running on freedom, fiscal responsibility and major changes at the bank of Canada to reign in inflation. There were a lot of great candidates, but in my opinion he was the best. Now he just needs to win the next election.

The idea that you'd willingly put yourself through that every 90 days is genocidal. People WILL die. You can't make millions of people that sick every 90 days and not kill people.

the canadian is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be ... unnatural
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Fuhrer Trudeau The Wise? I thought not. It's not a story the constitutionalists would tell you. It's a Fascist legend. Fuhrer Trudeau was a Fuhrer, so powerful and so wise he could use the State to influence the banks to silence peaceful protesters… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from being criticised. The dark side of the State is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his pomeranian lapdog in a turban everything he knew, then his pomeranian lapdog canceled him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from cricicism, but not himself.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zyQc77c5FQ&t=13s I've started releasing "the Graysonian Ethic:Lessons for my unborn son" in audio book form for free on youtube. Every Saturday a new chapter is released. The preface is now up at the link above, and every Saturday at 7AM EST a new chapter will be released until December.

Wait... Regarding Elon Musk's kids....
I can't think of a more Elon Musk move than having 9 children and claiming his kids are literally saving the planet from destruction. Think about it for a moment. It's pretty funny.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw-FbwmzPKo Here's a longer documentary on the situation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA8jIgvA8fo In 1917, an ammo ship exploded in Halifax harbor. It ended up the largest non-nuclear explosion in history. One story that really resonated with me was one of the telegraph operators. He had a chance to escape and started running, then turned back and wrote out a telegraph message. "Hold up the train. Ammunition ship afire in harbour making for Pier 6 and will explode. Guess this will be my last message. Good bye, boys." The last part of his message turned out to be true. The explosion totally wiped out that part of the city, and knocked the hands off his pocketwatch. The postmodernists think everything is just a drive for more power. Willingly dying to save between 200 and 700 people, how does that result in getting more power?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcnQJd_XRQQ I have a chapter in The Graysonian Ethic where I talk about my family, and I talk about my grandfather, who was a decorated war hero in WWII, the Italian theatre. He grew increasingly upset watching the free country he fought for become less free, and he died long before the woke era. I can't help but think that we need to remember their sacrifice, and what they made that sacrifice for. They didn't do it because they hated Germany, they did it because they loved the countries they were a part of. The Germans were the enemy in combat, but they were considered other people just doing their job. The other thing I remember is why the National Socialists were able to take over Germany; Everyone told the German people that they were monsters for decisions nobody outside the ruling class made, everyone told them to pay reparations for things they didn't personally do, and everyone in Germany suffered under those reparations. Tell everyone they're the devil long enough, and if some asshole with a tiny moustache says "No, we're good people and we're gonna fight back" then things got bad because they might've been good people, but he wasn't. The way that the winners built up Japan and Germany after World War 2 was the epoch of wisdom, wisdom we've sadly lost to time. Lest we forget, but we as a society have forgotten.

The left lost liberalism, that will be why they keep losing.
Liberal values only work when they're universal. If I'm allowed to live my life the way that I want, and you're allowed to live without your life the way that you want, and that's a compromise that's a lot easier to make. The authoritarian bend has changed the calculus. "use the pronouns or we're sending the police to arrest you" -- oh? well that's fine, but you don't get to ask just be left alone anymore. "take our vaccines or you aren't allowed to have a life anymore" oh? well that's fine, but don't expect me to get worked up if you want to get an abortion and can't. "We're going to use schools your kids are forced to go to by the state to indoctrinate your kids" oh? Well that's fine but I hope you don't think you've got a blank slate, you will be fought against. Losing liberalism ends the moral framework the left had benefited from for generations, and the sooner they realize this the sooner they can come back to the light. It becomes a new classism. Instead of liberalism for everyone, it's different levels of freedom for people of different spots on the political bingo card. Hopefully after they're absolutely trounced in the next few elections around the world they are reminded that they aren't entitled to votes and they need messages that apply to more than just a few people.

How should rich people be taxed? Are there any other considerations to be made?
Saw this question on lemmy and figured I'd ask it over here on the internet libre

[Admin Mode] Cleared out some unusable communities
Some people want to use this new Free Internet we've built to build walls, and I suppose more power to 'em. I removed some communities from instances that instance block FBXL Lotide. If I got any wrong, go ahead and rejoin, but the giant list of communities we couldn't interact with bothered me, so I cleaned it up. I've also been working to try to expand our list of linked communities with more that correctly federate.

Strange dream...
I just woke up from a dream... At first, it was a story about this awkward girl telling a story about this strange autistic boy marrying Britney spears. It seemed like a normal enough story (besides the obvious) except she said some really odd parts like she said something strange about "I could have called the cops on her, but I didn't"... The marriage was a big fancy ordeal and the story was told in a big hotel... Then all of a sudden, the perspective shifts. There was no Britney Spears, there never was. The girl was a drug addict who was together with the boy. She's pregnant but has serious problems, an opiate addition. They're on a trip and they're in a much more normal hotel. Suddenly she starts to very prematurely give birth to the child who came out looking off. I woke up in the perspective of the boy watching this baby just slide out of this girl with the feeling something really bad was happening and not knowing what to do about it. I think I understand where this dream came from. I recently became a father after 10 years of trying with my wife. Our son is perfect, he's so smart and beautiful and strong, at just 6 months old. He reacts strongly to people, and when he sees me or plays with me or I sing to him he smiles at me and looks at me. Always has. Before I met her, I briefly dated a stripper with a kid. Beautiful girl, she was clean at the time of drugs but drank too much. I didn't realize how bad her past was. I grew attached to her kid somewhat but our time together ended and she headed off to one of the big cities. After that I know the story grew darker. She'd call me fucked out of her mind, one time her kid was taken away by the state. Later the kid was taken in by her parents. Today I was thinking about how different our son is to her son at the time. My wife was once friends with the stripper too, she told me he had problems because she was abusing substances during the pregnancy, and he had anger issues and ADD and ADHD from that and because of the messed up stuff he's had to see in his short life. That had a big impact on me with my newly developed paternal instincts. The difference between the two babies is so marked, it had a big impact on me thinking that her little baby could be so harmed by selfish decisions. Now that I'm a dad myself, I look at a lot of people's decisions in a much more judgemental light. Instead of just saying "I understand", now I say "how could you do that if you have the same feelings I do?"
