Do utopian socialists and other non-Marxists have no claim whatsoever to the term “socialism”? I don’t care about Vaush specifically, but I wonder if my belief in an abstract moral position that profit, rent, and usury are wrong disqualifies me as a socialist.

Anyway, this is one reason I avoid actively applying labels to myself. I’d rather talk about only what is true or not true, instead of what words mean.

I misunderstood your question then. No, I don’t feel significantly more safe because of the 2nd amendment, but also not significantly less safe. It has little impact on me either way.

Never mind, that only works in the web UI but not Lemmur. But seems like something Lemmur should be able to do.

In the search, you must say “!community@lemmy.ml”. It may take a few seconds but the community will be searchable next time you search and be federated.

I encourage you to start an instance.

Yes, I mean making it a first class citizen of standard JS. That would be a step towards all JS libraries coming with type annotations without having to convert everything to TypeScript.

I think most are fair points, except I disagree that static types are not helpful. Static typing is preferable over dynamic typing but is difficult to do well. PHP and Python have type annotations now, and I think it would be good if JS introduced them as well. That would be a better solution than TypeScript.

My main point is that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution that should be applied to the whole country. Let each community govern its own norms of what weapons are allowed. Military grade weapons may not be required in a rural area but that does not mean we need a state bureaucracy to restrict them.

I generally feel safe. Homicide is very far down the list of causes of death. I am taking a much larger risk every time I choose to enter a car and drive on the highway, that somebody isn’t going to randomly decide to swerve into me.

I am in the USA and don’t support gun control at a federal level. I understand why you would want to stop people from open carrying rifles in Manhattan but the same rules are not appropriate for people living in rural areas. It’s a difference of community control vs. state control – communities may choose not to have guns on the street but that’s not for the state to decide.

Yes, the community is only a few days old.

You’re not the one owning the house or renting it out, right? You’re not obligated to do anything.

Correct. I was only speaking from a technical perspective in the purpose of the language being similar, but PHP is certainly easier for any shared hosting.

Yes, Node JS is server side JavaScript. You can use it wherever you would use PHP. Probably both will continue to coexist for a while.

Also, no comment on being vegan as I myself am not vegan.

I’m no relationship expert but I feel this depends on 2 things in general

1 - What are your goals in dating? Less serious and less long term, means politics are less relevant.

2 - How non-leftist are they? Social democrat is probably fine, centrist liberal is borderline, conservative will be challenging in the long term, reactionary is no-go-zone.

I’m on MATE and love it. I think it’s great that it doesn’t change and never will.

Learn Scheme For Max

This is the first draft of a book about an open-source extension to the Max/MSP computer music platform, enabling one to script and live code Max using s7 Scheme. The writer has asked for feedback on the book. …

A concern anarchists have is that their efforts will be redirected towards either reformist liberalism or authoritarian socialism, instead of towards a specifically anarchist direction. Of course we are in support of the rights of immigrants, racial minorities, etc. but if the demands of these minority rights organizations are unrelated to the demands of anarchists, it’s not obvious how anarchists should approach them. It may be true that anarchists are disproportionately white, but the answer is not necessarily to work with non-anarchists but to find ways to bring non-white people into anarchism. There are other perspectives but the answer is not obvious, and it’s easy to get sucked into non-anarchist directions.

I am thinking of foundation-type bodies. Basically the FSF shouldn’t have a monopoly of ideas on the direction of the free software movement. The core philosophy is well-defined but personally I think the “single-issue” approach of the FSF is limited and we need to work in a broader political framework.
