For me, there is no way ethical justification other than to avoid to collapse of the business so that the workers don’t lose their jobs. However, profits in a Capitalist system may be well justified by the capital owners as they are often used to stay competitive. But then again the whole system is entirely unethical and unjustifiable.
Although I haven’t finished playing it yet, Metro Exodus is a really good game. It’s an open world post-apocalyptic FPS with an intriguing storyline.
The first two games (Metro 2033, Metro Last Light) are also pretty good but aren’t open world. Metro 2033 also has somewhat of a horror aspect to it. The world building is fantastic!
The entire Metro trilogy is quite good, but specifically Metro Exodus is probably the one most similar to Fallout. And AFAIK it’s also available on GOG. (Last Light and Exodus also have native Linux versions)
I have a Vega 64 myself and its pretty good. Most games run perfectly on high graphics settings and my experience with the drivers are seamless since they are fully integrated within the Linux kernel. One thing to note is that Freesync sadly doesnt work on a multi monitor setup with X11 (it only really works with Wayland and the Sway window manager).
I have never had any firsthand experience with a 1080 TI, but from what I hear the drivers aren’t very fun to deal with. Aside from that, performance should be somewhat similiar with some experiences being better and worse on both sides.
I would highly recommend reading Less is More by Jason Hickel (An economic anthropologist from Eswatini). I’m also pretty interested in reading his book The Divide but it’s still only on my to read list. Maybe I’ll get to read it within the next few months.
Interessant finde ich die Produktionsweise und wie diese eventuell den Preis und Geschmack beeinflussen könnte. Aber ich finde, dass ein paar Infos zum Preis fehlen, welche außerhalb der Produktion liegen. Zum einen liegt der Mehrwertssteuer für Kuhmilch (in Deutschland) bei nur 7%, während Hafermilch bei 19% liegt. Außerdem erlauben staatliche Subventionen allgemein für einen ziemlich niedrigen Preis für Kuhmilch.
Yup, and in this case the Soviets (/Russians) weren’t really portrayed as villians IMO.
The Boys isn’t much anti-Russian because (beware of Spoilers):
The captured super hero (Soldier Boy) was actually betrayed by his own comrades and then handed over to the Soviets. IIRC, this betrayal was even coordinated by the super hero company in order to profit off of their new, lab-grown super hero.
If anything, The Boys is more anti-US than anti-Russian due to its underlying anti-Capitalist/anti-Neoliberal messages (The US being more Capitalist than Russia in this case). The show also portrays corruption, illegal business and unethical practices conducted by companies in order to maximize profits. The show is mainly a criticism of Capitalism and Neoliberalism in the US and doesn’t really show anything having much to do with Russia.
Besides that, the most vile characters in the show are actually the american super heros themselves together with the company. From committing murders to doing drugs and even human trafficking. So, I think it’s fair to say that the show isn’t specifically anti-Russian.
A bit off-topic: there have also been initiatives to reduce the tax for oat milk. My favorite example is when multiple cafes came together for a protest to simply sell coffee with oat milk with a 7% tax instead of 19% (they sued themselves afterwards).
Den ganzen Artikel, oder auch nur die wichtigen Teile, kann man auch gut kopieren und als Zitat in den Beitrag setzen. Sowas in die Richtung finde ich eigentlich ganz gut. Vor allem ist es ziemlich schade, wenn ein Artikel gelöscht werden muss, obwohl der Inhalt eigentlich sehr wichtig und interessant ist.
Und kleiner Tipp: viele Paywalls kann man auch mit der Leseansicht umgehen.
Inserting the community with the instance into the url when using the web UI also works. For example, if you would want to subscribe to the Technology community but you can’t find it with the search function, you could enter https://email@example.com to subscribe to the community. From what I’ve heard, communities not being searchable is because no one else from your instance subscribed to that community yet.
Sometimes when I’m in search of something from a specific genre, I head over to Bandcamp and look at a randomized list of Artists for that specific genre. Other times I’ll listen to something on Youtube and then take a look at the recommended Music related to what I’m already listening to.
Creating a Post on Lemmy asking for recommended Music could also be an option of course!

Is The New Oil the website you were referring to?
I agree and what I think is specifically meant with being nice is that you should to be respectful to each other. Anything else will get us nowhere in life.
