schestowitzthe only thing i would amend is of course, it is not just systemd. systemd is one example (perhaps the biggest, but it has some formidable competition, which i predicted a year or more ago. it is still getting worse, with or without systemd.)Jul 07 21:20
schestowitzsystemd is important enough to get rid of or make optional, sort of like the importance of winning as many battles in a war as possible. but we are losing 32bit support here and there, we are losing xorg to a half-implemented replacement (wayland, systemx, whatever) and theyre going to make the same false promises (lies) about it. theyre going to abuse and smear the critics simply for being right.Jul 07 21:20
schestowitzfree software is at war with narcissists and corporate shills-- stallman called deicaza a traitor. you think these people will ever let him get away with that again? being “nice” is more important than not losing the fight against monopolies. “traitor” isnt a word to throw around lightly, but deicaza wasnt the last one. and what did deicaza do? was it a problem the fsf has more recently turned its back on? because im pretty sure Jul 07 21:20
schestowitzthat whatever deicaza did, everything that he had done up to that point is under a free license, so (by modern fsf standards) there is no problem. we have all the software we need more or less, now we just need funding. well at some point, they need to represent the user. theyve stopped doing that, really.Jul 07 21:20

schestowitzJust because something is “not against the law” does not make it right, or positive.Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzindeed! and just because it doesnt violate the 4 freedoms directly, doesnt mean it wont hurt the user.Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzi can easily tell someone to run malicious code under a free license. the free license makes it easier to study, and easier to warn people about it, but that doesnt mean it is harmless code.Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzyou should be able to study harmful code, for educational reasons and to help you understand security. so that software shouldnt be banned, it should be understood.Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzbut the license doesnt care, or fix the problem. the user is free to run code that wipes out their files, and may want to for some reason, but if i try to put bad code into a project enough times, it is going to stay there until it is understood again.Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzwhat if the purpose of the code isnt to do harm to the user, but to the project itself?Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzif people believe the license alone is enough, they will not address this. if it were only hypothetical, that would be one thing. but some of us believe we have already found code that does this.Jul 07 21:21
schestowitzand we are being told its not a problem. the license is treated as the fix-- instead of the thing that ALLOWS the fix, which is what it really is.Jul 07 21:21

schestowitzThe FSF is just afraid of alienating its current/remaining members ($), just as it did when it launched the Vista 7 "Sins" campaign... people called that negative and some left. FSF is hardy combative, it's good at certain things like keeping GPL up to date/task.Jul 07 21:22

schestowitz> Jul 08 18:18
schestowitz> well i dont really agree with the nazi agenda. my politics aside, i dont think my lifestyle is something they accept. [im bisexual, half the women ive dated are not white, nor straight-- half the women ive dated are bi. i started talking to a british trans woman once. she loved my impression of steve coogan. but she was suffering too much from depression to actually date me.] and thats fine of course-- im not looking for an endorsement, Jul 08 18:18

schestowitz> at the moment, im more concerned with the cure (controlling the internet) than the disease (no offense.)Jul 08 18:18
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> i also think some nazis are on the fringe-- others (the ones worth worrying about) are causing death and destruction, and i certainly dont agree with that. not in the 1930s, not in the 2030s either.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> but heres the funny thing-- my definitions of racism and sexism are older and time-tested. i think its very clearly possible for a society to be sexist [against] women AND men-- and sexist against blacks AND whites-- at the same time. theres really no magic to it. the laws are written that way.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> [i can list examples. i dont have time or interest being a mens rights activist, but i do recommend cassie jayes documentary about them. for one thing, the amount of violent domestic abuse against men is an untold story, swept under the rug. domestic violence is not 50/50 but its MUCH closer to that than people think. people assume its mostly against women. thats not putting it in the most honest terms, actually.]Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> so if we have rights groups for minorities, for women too, i think white men have a right to advocate for those things.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> but before we start reciting the 14 words, i dont think men or white people are special in that regard-- once again, everybody has that right. im sure i wouldnt endorse your way of representing it-- but everybody has a right to represent whatever group they think they belong to.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> the new way of doing things is based on pre-crime. i dont believe in that. you know, in the nuremberg trials they didnt round up all the hitler youth and hang them-- for a good reason-- they would have exterminated most germans then.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> fun fact: whatever my other heritage, im from a german family. my last name is german, my grandmothers maiden name-- also german. this has nothing to do with the other questions, in fact.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19

schestowitz> i want people to advocate for free speech. you of course, have it rough in this regard. you have the passion of an advocate, but the most obvious reason (false or not) is that youre doing it for the right to be a nazi.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> funny thing about that-- its their "best excuse" for doing what they do-- to thwart the nazis.Jul 08 18:19
schestowitz> Jul 08 18:19

schestowitzThe plan has never actually changed, but our way of framing it has changed entirely. We de-commoditize protocols. We add features we want and deprecate ones that people rely on, and we tell them to get with the program. We create the same kind of lock-in (in practice) by decreasing the compatibility with trusted development tools and utilities, so we can move more quickly (and drag users along) from one industry fad to another.Jul 09 06:54

schestowitzpeople who conflate everyone on the right with groups like this, only help groups like this by making them look larger than they are. the only thing i agree with thatcher on is that you dont want to help these groups recruit (i may not agree with the iron lady on matters of complete press silence, but certainly on the importance and value of SOME discretion.)Jul 10 05:22
schestowitzsome of the people that get sucked into these groups are confused and abused and (undeniably) stupid, or least naive. thinking the group is larger and very successful guarantees that more people will join. i wish people would focus on these real nazis, and take some care with how they brandish the word.Jul 10 05:22
schestowitzi got called a nazi this week, youd have to be fucking stupid… but its not the insult (who cares?) its the stupidity and the carelessness of throwing it around when the real thing exists. the place for most people to fight nazis is on the fringes. instead, society is saying to these people “go fuck yourself, youre ALREADY a nazi.” so basically, youre pushing them to a. not be part of a more reasonable society b. encouraging them to Jul 10 05:22

schestowitzthus, we need to 1. lobby the fsf to evolve and adapt to these threats (but first recognise them!) and 2. have a backup fsf in case they fail. they wont completely fail while stallman is president but when he is no longer able to head the fsf, they may fail at that point. practically no one at the fsf (i keep track) is suitable to take over.Jul 10 05:52

schestowitzGood chance that the Dems will condemn US with another 4 years of Trump. Many of them don’t realize that a moderate can’t win. Americans are just too angry. If you can’t convince the voters that you’re angry and will make radical changes, you’re dead meat. That’s how Trump won. Of course, Trump didn’t “drain they swamp.” Quite the opposite, of course. He’s wealthy. The way to beat Trump is to run against all wealthy Jul 10 08:19

The real rotten apple when it comes to CO2 reductions is Germany. They are one of the richest countries in the EU and still they only promise to stop using coal in 2038.
