Some of you should consider actually reading the book. It's not long. https://thebreadbook.org/conquestofbread.html It's the yeast you can do.

Read the first couple of chapters now and will definitely read the rest, it seems very interesting.

The point I always trip up on in coming to agreement with anarchist thinking (to which I'm generally very aligned) is when it comes to non-proliferation of dangerous technologies (for want of a better phrase), of which protecting the environment is the most obvious example. It's where older texts feel most outdated, in lacking that modern context, and so far I already get that vibe here (especially skipping to the end to see his rebuttal of perceived arguments against). Some regulation of free association is required to tackle issues such as climate change. Less obviously but similarly there needs to be ethical debate as a society at large that can then also be enforced universally when it comes to things like genetic engineering. Something typically state-like is needed to ensure a handful of people don't create a virus that takes out the population, for example. Or to ensure that a nuclear power plant is built to strict and exacting safety standards. Enforcement of standards in general is something I can't consolidate with my perception of an anarchist society. The modern state attempts to free its citizens from the impossible burden of assessing the danger of all undertakings, be it in food standards or building codes, not just for the direct recipient but for bystanders who may be adversely affected regardless. The state cannot be wholly dismantled without adverse affect in those areas.

That's a bit stream of consciousness-y, because I can't quite coalesce those objections down into a single summarising point. It's something like "there are some things we really all need to agree on, and rely on being upheld".

Should I leave a message on a scooter at work decked out with Steins;Gate decals?
Bit of a strange thread I know, but for awhile now I have kept seeing this scooter at my work area's parking place. Now I don't have that many friends in town - partially due to my painfully slow adoption of German - so it seems like it could be cool to give this guy my Twitter handle or something and send him a couple of mentions about Steins;Gate and see how it goes.

But here is the rub: do I trust someone who is so brazenly a Weeb that his scooter looks like this?

A comment from Resetera on the England v Cameroon Women World Cup match -

if VAR is going to trigger constantly for offsides then i don't see a world where teams learn to abuse it by intentionally making them offsides by slowing down just a bit

I think aside from the wargaming thread I’m done with Era. That business about Etika was the last straw for me.

I consider myself pretty far left politically but those people strawberry floating scare me.

Seen that about them finding Etika, but what happened on Resetera?

Etika put out a video a few days ago which was quite obviously a suicide note, it got posted on Era and was met with a load of members (including a mod) saying he was attention whoring, taking the piss, they don’t care etc.

I can kind of understand it from a ‘boy who cried wolf’ point of view, even if the guy was clearly having problems, but that’s not what I saw. What I saw was something I’m seeing more and more often, their own rules being ignored if it’s about someone who didn’t pass one of their purity tests at some point in the past. He said something bad about a woman once several years ago or used the wrong variety of the N word and his apology wasn’t repentant enough, so he was fair game.

Any community that size has a fair number of decent people and sub communities, it’s just reached the point for me where it’s not worth being associated with the rest of the nonsense that’s going on there.

Getting up to speed on that story, and Era's take on it - YIKES

Never ever ever EVER dismiss someone who is suicidal, EVER. You just don't do that. If you genuinely think they are faking it just don't get involved but for strawberry float sake don't call them a poser. You really want to be proven wrong on that count? Idiots.

Exactly. Even if you think you’re certain someone is doing that gooseberry fool for a laugh? Just shut the strawberry float up.

I seen that video, and I'm not sure why anyone would dismiss it. It was pretty distressing how calm he was about the whole thing. The guy was clearly troubled.

If anything ever happens videogame related it'll be on ResetEra straight away.

So it's good for that.

It’s great for breaking news and the sub-communities are really good.
