@kaschuta most people are doing cargo cult self actualization in their 20s, i was certainly no exception.

Crypto startup idea: social justice tokens. When you wanna claim that someone has done "harm" or that they have "harassed" someone & you have receipts, you have to buy a token. If you're right, you earn interest. If you're wrong, the token is lost.
What could possibly go wrong?!?

Rats/postrats relate to philosophy like how DeFi relates to the financial system.

In German, when someone just can't shut up about free markets, we call this Ayn Rant, and I think that's beautiful.

Now what does this imply?

This history of space toilets is it's own thing of beauty. youtu.be/w5y0mTqK54k

a) Hyperwokes arguing that sex (!) doesn't "really" exist & it's an unacceptable imposition to determine one at birth.

b) Transphobes arguing that trans people don't "really" exist & it's all just an elaborate fantasy we're taking part in.

What is going on?!

Are we just all super self-conscious?

Propaganda lesson: "Weaponized Hypochondria"

Creating fear of a nonexistent enemy creates confirmation bias, making it seem to exist.

Then you fight it, and since you're the aggressor, it fights back.

Then it really seems to exist.

@akbarpour_ What I am excited about is having all papers public access but Elsevier gets an NFT so they can "own the original".

NB that this is basically a cartel, and they operate *exactly* as you'd expect.

Wondering why ISPs participate in this. - Bans reduce the attractiveness of their service.

I find it entirely reasonable that "hate speech" will soon be a reason for bans as well. - After all, AWS did that already, and they're just as private.

Remedies: encrypted DNS (as of yet), VPNs (putting you at the mercy of, at least, some other corp), TOR.
