this was on my list of Least Likely Outcomes as a child, and by the I Am Always Wrong Theorem, that meant it ended the world when I did that. sorry about that folks
mea culpa 😬
the end of that rant
as much as I hate to go on (whilst on another's thread), I don't know how long the IP bubble can exist. we're accepting that our health is at the mercy of medical IP. we accept we can grow crops at the mercy of the agricultural IP.
we can plant other people's intellectual property in LITERAL EARTH and WATER IT WITH OUR OWN HANDS
we don't "own" it in some abstract, nonsensical concept of things.
I cannot help but call bullshit.
re: the end of that rant
newsletter? O_O I don't have a newsletter. I don't even think about this stuff if I can avoid it.
I hope the solarpunks are successful, but I'm pushing forty so hard I numerically surpassed it a while back. I won't live to see it.
I'd love to be pleasantly surprised, but I'd also love to not end up on a watchlist because the still-surviving Koch brother wants to suppress "radical hippies" or whatever their world will decide I am.
but thank you. sorry.
