”They tackle difficult themes of colonialism and violence with unflinching grace, and the band of young people at the center of the story—and the fate they create for themselves—makes me want to sob and cheer at the same time. — — This may be the story in this book most likely to rewire your brain.”
That's what they said about my short story in the coming Dragon Bike anthology!
According to recent research about half of the angry tweets targeting Finnish politicians come from just 200 accounts.
Here's the full publication (in Finnish):
Hey cool! At some point #Jami's bug preventing mac from going to sleep has been fixed. Now I can actually keep the program running. :)
Now if I only had any contacts there...
I think the problem with nonviolence comes down to how the state has coopted and redefined the term "violence"
Private property has no rights. Smashing a storefront or torching a cop car isn't "violent" because it doesn't actually harm anyone
If you define nonviolence as "not causing direct harm to any individuals except in self-defense against a direct attack" then I think a huge number of radicals would agree with that. But when most people say "nonviolent" what they mean is "nonthreatening," and yeah, that's gonna be ineffective, almost tautologically
I heard #ExtinctionRebellion are taking on an airport today? GOOD. :) A relatively low proportion of people actually fly and it makes so much CO2. It's not as big of a deal as the worst culprit (fridges, freezers and air conditioners improperly destroyed) but it's still huge. 💪
Ah, vihdoinkin kirjani ilmestyi myyntiin myös kustantamon omaan verkkokauppaan. :D
@Stoori It seems part of the wider belief that mental states aren't "real" issues in the way physical ones are.
If someone put up a notice on a door saying "please don't use" and a person who was blind used it, no one would blame the blind person.
So, we should have the same acceptance that some people don't experience social cues that are clear to most, &c.
Meh. I know my toots can feel blunt at times. And many times they're borderline replyguying, though I'm doing my best to learn away from it.
But many times they're the most authentic way of my communication. Setting things straight before moving on.
And then I find out that someone has softblocked me, and I see that there's yet another person I can't have an authentic connection with.
I know, everyone can choose to not interact. Still it sucks to be at this end so often.
