Any fiction books with an anarchist context?
There are countless games that simulate worlds and societies with hierarchical structures (you are a god, you are a military leader, you are a business owner, you are a football club manager, etc). Are there any games that explore player agency within an anarchic context? I’m not asking for examples with mere absence of visible hierarchy (e.g. OpenSuspect) but rather simulations of explicit anarchist dynamics and horizontal structures. I’m interested less in games that portray anarchy as an unstable state of social unrest (i.e. rioting), but rather as a stable state of being and living for human beings.


Motivated, Organisational skill yes. Energy no. I’ve never met someone who could build up a sig movement, even the floyd protests only happened bc of a death.


Is sepiasearch and re education down for anyone else?
https://sepiasearch.org is returning a 502. Re education is an anarchist content creator, he makes educational videos about anarchy, but all his vids disappeared

link isnt working for me


This does not have any context

It’s from:

Aer’ŝip’estr’ino kaj sia amato.

Rakonto.

“Tavaso, ci ŝajne supozas ke mi zorgas pri ciaj opinioj.” Fi’anĝelo re’klinis trankvile sid’ile, levante glitan, akran du’on’brovon al li moke. “Mi ne eĉ povas imagi kial ci tiel pensas.”

Lia esprimo koler’eta tiom ne’daŭris ke sciis ke ŝi ŝajn’igus mal’rimarki ĝin. Li sciis ke plaĉ’igas ŝin rigardi lian koler’adon sid’ile, ne’povante kontri ŝiajn ordonojn, kaj permesis ŝin ĝui ek’fieron. Pri tiu ek’fiero bedaŭr’igos ŝin — tro’volo ja estas lia laboro’fako, ĉu ne.

“Bone. Mi paŭz’endos iujn projektojn, pri kelkajn ci de’profitos.” Ŝi ne ja log’iĝus, sed ĉagren’iĝus. Fi’anĝelo gracie glut’etis la or’koloran vinon si kiel’donace portis ŝin, almenaŭ ja vizaĝe ne mal’trankvila.

“Ci ĉiam opinias cin tre estim’inda.”


Any games with anarchist context? (I will settle with movie/book recommendations if there are none)

Under the current capitalist system, should people who self identify as anarchist, should they not take out loans for houses/cars? Afaik, capitalism would prevent a lot of people from being able to afford to buy a house without a loan.



afaik anarchism is in favor of housing being a, (whats-the-word) service, rather than a, uh, capitalist good.

Anarchism is in favor of subsidized/free/i’m-not-sure-what-the-word-is education, transporation, health care too?

Transportation as in private vehicle or like buses? Buses i can easily imagine being ‘free’. Private vehicles my imagination isn’t returning anything.


Anarchist solution(s) to loans?
A summary would be nice. How would anarchists handle people getting loans to buy expensive things? In an anarchist society/group where they still use regular money



imo you delete too many posts with valuable ideas, i am trying to see what other ideas you had, but it seems like a lot of your posts are gone :(. Maybe make one account where you post the ideas and a throwaway account where you chitchat then later delete.


I like your posts and ideas! I have similar ambitions too!


Makes sense to me!

I believe that reddit is a bad platform. Not because of it’s content, but because it is controlled by a single organization, like in a dictatorship. With it’s only values being creating profit for it’s shareholders. It has a business model of tracking their users and create addiction among it’s users. It will only devolve in time.

This will confuse/offend some center/righties


Different people respond to different methods, this will help get some users to jump ship.


Ah, good to hear you’re back. Still interested in helping grow the fediverse? Ideas; https://lemmy.ml/post/73866, https://lemmy.ml/post/74356


Polcompball allows linking to relevant communities. hexbear is there. Can we go through and link some sublemmys?
I think it'll be good promotion. It sounds like a lot of work for one person, so I'm hoping to get some help.

They have a discord but not a matrix bridge :(




If i cannot figure out how to use recoll better, i will look into those, thank you


[Solved] Does anyone know how to get recoll to search files whose file names begin with "#"?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recoll Recoll is not finding "suitcase" in "# example.txt", but it seems to work when i rename the file to "example.txt" > characters and file names exceptions in the Recoll preferences Solved: characters and file names exceptions in the Recoll preferences, skipped names section

If this sub is related to TheRedPill, it might get banned
Alluding to the symbol of the "red pill" from the film The Matrix, r/TheRedPill promotes misogyny, hegemonic masculinity, and traditional gender roles. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes it as one of several male supremacist subreddits featuring xenophobic discourse. It has been associated with several right-wing movements and the alt-right because of its attacks on feminism and mockery of rape.

this method works for me, but libre_warrior’s alternative method doesn’t work for me. It errors


I’d guess they wanted more network effect. So they went back to proprietary apps.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_effect, tldr; more users = good.


Weird, i omitted the first @, but I still get:

“Error Cannot fetch information of this remote account”


[SOLVED] Is there an easy way to see lemmy's user growth over time?
Like a graph of the number of users on the whole lemmyverse. Solved, graph here: https://the-federation.info/lemmy

Ideas to promote the fediverse/privacy/anything
BTW do we have any subs about fediverse/lemmy/privacy promotion? --- Change wifi name to x Chalk ads on sidewalks Set up a free public booth and hand out food samples and pamphlets Make song/art about fediverse Cold emailing celebrities about x x related shirt Yelp reviews that are mostly positive and that "it would be nice if they had x" holiday greeting cards In bookstores, put privacy books in more relevant spots When eating out, ask about their social medias, recommend x Bumper sticker or paper printout inside of car with links Facebook status, if have a fb I used to live in a city with a big university library I went to often. Sometimes I left notes or hints in books I liked. Maybe one could leave a list of local instances or a pamphlet about how one can and should host their own in some admin or linux books.
