France has now fully nationalized its largest electric utility, EDF. It's going from 87% nationalized to 100% after it failed to keep bills low.

We call on people in positions of power in their FOSS communities to stop using GitHub and stop recommending it. GitHub, as a proprietary, trade-secret platform cannot be the singular development community for FOSS projects.

Movie starts 8PM

Machines in Flames (2022, 50min) was first distributed through a network of self-erasing USB data sticks dropped outside corporate campuses. This prompted warning emails from tech firms who feared the release of its secret history of computational self-destruction. They sought to contain its cinematic search for an elusive group - CLODO - that bombed computer companies in 1980s Toulouse, France.

Journeying through the cybernetic nodes of military, industrial, and socialist development, Machines in Flames exposes how recording devices fail to collect the ashes of history. It is unclear what made corporate security firms most anxious: the film’s fiery archival traces, its viral desktop choreography, the paranoid footage of nocturnal stakeouts, or its philosophical investigation of self-combustion?

Machines in Flames is the debut film of the Destructionist International, and the first in a series on the appetite for abolition in ultra-leftism.

The Destructionist International is dedicated to the negative in all of its forms. It is driven by a shared inclination: a taste for the fury of destruction, away from the dull submission of situations to reasoned judgement. This passion helps DI maintain a militant indifference toward individuals, organization, and institutionalization of any kind. It owes its existence to radical events, those rare situations in which abolition becomes actual.

The Destructionist International works across a variety of creative mediums (text, image, video, sound) and themes (militancy, sabotage, technology, liberation). Its first work was the the film Machines in Flames, in which media scholar Andrew Culp and cultural geographer Thomas Dekeyser retraced the footsteps of CLODO’s historic attacks on computer firms in the 1980s.

t's tricky balancing the founder's legal rights ("I own this because I started it") with grounding ownership decisions in consent and anti-imperialism ("We own this because we built it together on the fertile soil tended by the ancestors of others and ourselves.")

But having those conversations and learning through them helps unwind the trauma of existing in a brutal, oppressive socioeconomic system that wants nothing more than to exploit everyone and everything for an illusion of prosperity.

Exploitation a challenging topic. It requires a perspective of both consent-based and rights-based ways of relating.

In a rights-based framing; if workers agree to something, even if they cannot safely say no it's not "exploitation."

In a consent-based framing; if workers agree to something, and they can't safely say no, it's exploitation.

Our business legal system is rights-oriented; which leaves us with little precedent to look to when building regenerative, reconciliatory organizations.

Entrepreneurship is part of the #ReconciliationOfLabor; but it has significant up-front costs, redlining issues, and often perpetuates the exploitation of others labor.

To create socioeconomic self-determination for all, start dismantling exploitative entrepreneurialism.

Exploitative entrepreneurialism looks like:

1. Underpaying labor (wages or unbalanced employee ownership programs)
2. Using misleading or cognitively exploitative marketing on customers.
3. Leveraging exploitative suppliers.

The Rawrr!!! theme is more important, if prioritization is needed.😄

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will be powered up today.

I hope they create a blackhole and destroy humanity.

@maehder I have my posts auto-delete after 30 days. And yet hundreds of my posts are sitting archived in archive sites that I didn't put there, people have screenshotted some and posted them on other sites, and I know at least one stalker tries to scrape all my public toots. I've also seen people end up in jail because because their social media posts described motive, time and place, or just confessions of a crime.

Journalism becomes a justice issue when journalists rely on police, prosecutors, and pro-carceral academics without question. Cloaking pro-carceral reporting in faux objectivity is a political move that shapes the public's opinion on how we should address public safety.
