  • Gig Economy

    2018-06-18T08:22:24Z via Web To: Public CC: Followers

    If in an Industrialized Western Country the only source of income left for middle aged men is being a Foodora rider, that Country is already failed, and it can't be Foodora the one to fix it by paying them 8€/h instead of 4.

  • Leftism and cognitive dissonance

    2018-06-06T08:32:43Z via Web To: Public CC: Followers

    La più evidente dissonanza cognitiva della sinistra, di tutte le sinistre, è credere di combattere per eliminare le "diseguaglianze", mentre sono i primi a credere nell'abisso di disuguaglianza tra loro - "colti", dal lato giusto della storia (sic) - e "gli altri", popolo ignorante e incapace di decidere per sè, senza la loro guida illuminata (lol).

    The most evident cognitive dissonance of the Left, of all Lefts, is to believe they are fighting "inequality", whilst deeply convinced in being abysmally superior - they, with their "culture", "on the right side of history" (sic) - to the "others", aka the people, judged ignorant, savage and incapable of deciding for themselves, without their enlightened lead (lol).

    Almeno quando i giornali erano di carta, riscriverli era più difficile...

    Carta. Il monitor con la blockchain built in. :)

    In ogni caso, parli del Fatto Quotidiano. Il piu' fallito tra i tentativi di ricostruire l' Unita', usando gli stessi metodi, la stessa mentalita' e facendo gli stessi errori.

    Mi aspetto che organizzino "grandi feste di autofinanziamento" con lo stand del fritto, prima o poi.

  • Handelsblatt fears Europe and China being on good terms

    2018-05-14T10:14:59Z via Web To: Public CC: Followers

    "Twenty-seven of the 28 national EU ambassadors to Beijing have compiled a report that sharply criticizes China’s “Silk Road” project, denouncing it as designed to hamper free trade and put Chinese companies at an advantage.

    The report, seen by Handelsblatt, said the plan, unveiled in 2013, “runs counter to the EU agenda for liberalizing trade and pushes the balance of power in favor of subsidized Chinese companies.”

  • Juncker should have lived in URSS under Stalin

    2018-05-10T18:10:08Z via Impeller To: Public CC: Followers

    European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker offered a somewhat generous appraisal of Marx: “Today he stands for things which is he not responsible for and which he didn’t cause, because many of the things he wrote down were redrafted into the opposite.”

    It is not entirely clear what Juncker meant by this. Marxism, after all, has inflicted untold misery on tens of millions of people who have been forced to live under regimes waving its banner. For much of the twentieth century, 40% of humanity suffered famines, gulags, censorship, and other forms of repression at the hands of self-proclaimed Marxists.

    In his speech, Juncker seemed to be alluding to the standard counterargument: that communist atrocities throughout the twentieth century were due to some sort of distortion of Marx’s thought, for which the man himself can scarcely be held responsible.

    Of course, it is all rubbish, and Marx’s theory of history – dialectical materialism – has since been proved wrong and dangerous in practically every respect. And, if more evidence were needed, the countries that embraced capitalism in the twentieth century went on to become democratic, open, and prosperous societies.

    By contrast, every regime that has rejected capitalism in the name of Marxism has failed – and not by coincidence or as a result of some unfortunate doctrinal misunderstanding on the part of Marx’s followers. By abolishing private ownership and establishing state control of the economy, one not only deprives society of the entrepreneurship needed to propel it forward; one also abolishes freedom itself.

    1. I could not unfollow myself in datamost web UI
    2. Commenting on my own posts gave me notifications
    3. I still don't understand how to mark messages and notifications as read.

    4. can't unfollow myself from Impeller either, apparently. :(

  • Narcissism

    It's less jarring to me since I use a redshift app at night, which doesn't show up in this screenshot.

    ps. I am on a mobile browser now and my keyboard keeps popping in and out when trying to write this comment.
    Don't know whose fault it is yet.

    I could not find Impeller on F-Droid.
    I had to go through Google Play and the list of permissions required is appalling.

    do you know if it intended behaviour to only show the bio of people on tapping their username? I'd expect a list of their posts.

    I'll try the Dianara for desktop though :)

    SirJohnDoe at 2018-04-04T20:42:30Z

    I don't know how Impeller works, I don't have a device for running it.

    Showing their posts is currently only possible if they're on your same server, so I imagine Impeller doesn't implement that for that reason.

    People were indeed on different servers. That was my hypothesis as well, makes sense I guess.

    Will Dianara for Windows be maintained, by the way?
