If an article is behind a paywall I tend to just stick it into outline.com and hope that it’s supported. For example


Well considering two of !vegan@lemmy.ml’s mods are cats, I’d say yes.


I highly recommend people make their liberal friends read this book! Parenti’s material analysis of the USA’s sham democracy is spot-on and highlights a staggering amount of examples of its inability to represent the proletariat. He uses this material analysis as bait then at the very end reels the reader in by explicitly stating socialism is the only way to achieve true democracy. He’s smart and saves that for the very end so as to not scare off liberals until they’ve already seen the USA’s democracy for what it really is.



How to create a gemlog with gssg

Unrelated but I’m making this post on Lemmur just to test out if posting works on it. Fingers crossed 🤞…


Principles of Communism is such an easily digestible summary of communism and should be used as an introduction to communism much more than it currently is.


There’s no harm in giving it a shot for yourself, though. These issues may be specific to me, I’ve never bothered looking into them.

If you want to easily move your Google Photos photos to your Nextcloud instance, give rclone a try. And make sure you add the Preview Generator app in Nextcloud and set up a cron job to activate it every once in a while so that image thumbnails load much faster when using the Android app.


Thankfully there’s no reason to go on Conservapedia unless you’re a masochist, especially when EcuRed and ProleWiki exist.


There’s a really weird bug on the webpage where the farther down you scroll on the Photos app, the higher up the page photos begin to load, until you reach a point where photos load in really far up the screen and are blocked by the top bar. You can’t even scroll down to look at them because they “unload” as soon as you do. So if you have a ton of photos and need to scroll down a lot to see some of the older ones, tough luck.

Also, recently on the Nextcloud Android app, only the 191 most recent photos load for me. It used to be that they’d loan in in chunks of 50 as I kept scrolling, but now it just stops so again, I can’t look at older photos unless just go straight to them in the “Files” portion of Nextcloud.


I have a Nextcloud instance for my own use and love it for documents, notes through Carnet, calendar, and to hold my contacts, but it is pretty awful for holding a large collection of photos. I originally wanted it as a Google Photos replacement but I’ve come to learn it’s not the best in that department.


Capitalism is impossible to overthrow because any business, or “means of production,” that costs more to operate than the income it produces, i.e. does not turn a profit, will ultimately fail.

Dam Marx’s Capital completely demolished in one sentence. Astounding work Conservapedia.


Whoops I totally ignored the suggestion for a story, sorry about that. In that case, if you have an Android phone you could try Andor’s Trail, although the assets aren’t freely licensed so I don’t know if you’ll mind or not.


I read Caliban and the Witch a couple of weeks ago! Incredible book, I’ll never stop praising it. As for suggestions, I haven’t read it yet, but maybe give Leslie Feinberg’s novel, Stone Butch Blues a read. She/zie made it available for free so you can legally download a copy on this website.


¿Cómo aprendiste el español?


There’s Veloren, an open world Voxel game written in Rust. It’s pretty barebones at the moment but you can keep your eye on it 👀


Geez Dessalines how many languages do you know? This has got to be like the fifth or sixth.


They’ve mentioned that this first version of streaming will have no chat or emote features. No mention of whether they plan on bringing them at a later date, but they probably just want to stay laser-focused on getting streaming working as best as possible first.




ASCII art for the Lemmy mascot

Edit: the nose looks nicer with quotation marks instead of the underscores on top …



Sadly true.

There’s nothing inherently sad about radicalizing people to different ideologies. The sad part is that people are radicalized to the alt-right.

Huh? Why would you say something like that?

Yeah that was probably a transphobic comment from that user ugh.


Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. The SNES version in particular but the GBA version is good as well!


I never understood this obsession with lab-grown meat to be honest. We already have plant-based meats that taste good enough, so I’m just not sure why people are waiting around to eat artificially created animal carcass.

However, I do wonder what the meat industry will do if lab-grown meat ever gets to be a mainstream option. Will they fight against it like the dairy industry does to the plant milk industry?



In Pursuit of Intentionality

I found this person’s gemlog while browsing random Gemini sites and they had an interesting take on the whole digital minimalism movement. Essentially, their point is that you shouldn’t just be aiming to blindly reduce all your screen time, but instead make sure the things you use your screen time o…



What is something that you are incredibly proud of?

Something you have done, something a group you’re affiliated with has done, or just anything that you are proud of and would like to share…



I always found this boss and her stage to sorta line up with the general vaporwave aesthetic. Do y’all agree? …



Human and animal bodies in the transition to a capitalist mode of production

The transition to a capitalist mode of production meant that “acquisition [became] the ultimate purpose of life” (Federici, pg. 135). So naturally, anything standing in the way of the ultimate acquisition of capital and resources had to be stripped away. The worker’s body was one such thing-turned-c…

Angela Davis and Grace Lee Boggs discuss veganism as a revolutionary diet philosophy…




Penal affairs [are] a confrontation coded by 'civilization.'

La Phalange analyses penal affairs as a confrontation coded by ‘civilization’, the great crimes not as monstrosities, but as the fatal return and revolt of what is repressed, the minor illegalities not as the necessary margins of society, but as a rumbling from the midst of the battle-field.” - F…
