tasteless jokes aside, the question now is how the cops respond. was the conviction essentially a tactical move by the police? if so, how disciplined / well organized are they, as a class? it seems like chauvin was abandoned by his union (maybe. we'll see about sentencing & appeals). how do cops in other cities interpret this?

The quantifying urge of capital is a great dehumanizing force, a machine rendering a world of human fullness and unspoken depth into an even plane easily mapped, enclosed, and traded through the imposition of individuated Value. Every facet of human life a commodity, every activity and skill a product. The primary project of the bourgeois class is to impose the logic of quantification, of the market, on the minds of every one of us

how ironic, that it is the murder of the very rich people who seek immortality through blood, that will lead to the actual emancipation of the human spirit, through communism.

the United States and China are each other’s biggest trade and investment partners and both countries bourgeoisie happily profit from each others working class labour

"While more established privacy-focused cryptocurrencies like Zcash and Monero have been more widely used and arguably better tested, Marlinspike says Signal chose to integrate MobileCoin because it has the most seamless user experience on mobile devices"

you chose mobilecoin because you MADE mobilecoin, you bastard

signal is adding some crypto currency scheme called "mobilecoin". it's pre-mined (the founders own 80% of existing coins) and moxie is personally invested in. this is the beginning of the end for signal :'( it was nice while it lasted

i also really want to read Lunacharsky's Religion and Socialism but afaik it remains untranslated

on that note, i've been searching for an ebook version of Sheila Fitzpatrick's "The Commissariat of Enlightenment: Soviet Organization of Education and the Arts under Lunacharsky" and i don't think it exists :c although there is a scan of her 1969 thesis

liberal mask and stay-at-home scolding is annoying and ineffective because the US lacks both the unifying social principle that would make autonomous collective action (i.e. self-enforced norms around appropriate mask-wearing and self-isolating) possible, AND the political will to enforce restrictions in the absence of voluntary social action. it is pure virtue signaling.

this leads to the post-structuralist trap of perceiving a simulated/spectacular world run by evil men and shadowy organizations who produce reality with their actions. the truth is that these would-be demiurges are themselves subject to the material demands of capitalism. if they seem invincible, it's because their wealth and power is based on forms of rentier exploitation and extraction that we don't have good language for describing or intuition for attacking
