How To Be An Ethical Consumer:
- Don't buy from Amazon
- Spend half an hour researching where else you can buy the thing you want
- Order it from a small business
- The small business orders it from Amazon and just has it shipped to you
- Oh no
- There's no ethical consumption in a system with these fucked up power dynamics
Looks like they posted another interview I did with French media a few days ago. This time with L’ADN:
Google, c'est comme la cigarette : c'est votre choix mais il impacte les autres
officials having political power over others is an unjust hierarchy
the admin/user dichotomy is an unjust hierarchy
asking a programmer to code something for you is submitting to an injustice hierarchy
someone being more popular than The Average Person is an unjust hierarchy
alphabetically ordered names are an unjust hierarchy
Organized a small study circle on surveillance capitalism and anti-capitalist tech today.
We discussed the dangers of organising on Facebook, state surveillance in Pakistan, and embracing p2p alternatives.
Used @aral's Rai interview and Shoshanna Zuboff's "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism" as primary resources.
Managed to rope a fellow comrade onto the fediverse as well 😁 (say hi to @Zainulabdin!)
Maybe in the future I can lead a study circle on #solarpunk
