yt.artemislena.eu Bentkey: The Daily Wire's Kids Streamer

Bentkey was more interesting to cover than I expected. The shows themselves are pretty shallow, but the platform and what it might mean for the Daily Wire in the future could be very consequential. Its failure could seriously damage the company, and its success would be a major boon. So far it seems...

    What do violence interrupters in Oakland do? We spoke with one to find out
  • There's a great documentary about a similar effort in Chicago - Interrupters. It got shut down after lots of pushback from the Police. I think it was hurting their arrest and incarceration numbers.

    Oakland is considering adopting a riskier police chase policy. A professor who helped OPD rethink pursuits says that's a very bad idea.

    15 years of degrowth research: A systematic review
  • In my experience, people aren’t taking the idea seriously enough. People are happy to geek out about electric cars and solar panels, but degrowth, despite the broad political consensus on the overwhelming evidence for its necessity, is still regarded as fringe.

    Agreeing on goals is often a larger obstacle than finding solutions. How many leftists who were responsible for building sewers were sanitation engineers? Do you think they had a fleshed-out building codebook and peer-reviewed waste management proposal before they acquired political power? Or was that the easy part, compared to building a political coalition powerful enough to tax rich people who were fine with running sewage down the middle of the streets of working-class neighborhoods?

  • Summer of Heat. Next big action is June 28th, Wall Street
  • I love the work they've done getting endorsements from so many activist organizations. A great example of coalition-building.

  • Interview: Radon and the new wave of anarchist sci-fi
  • Back when the Anarchist subreddit had account flairs, anarcho-transhumanism didn't have a plurality, but did have significant representation. William Gillis was the most visible anarcho-transhumanist in the forum, I'm glad to see he's still kicking around on Mastodon.

    My hunch is that transhumanist anarchists are over-represented in the field of sci-fi compared to most other tendencies of anarchism.

  • Voulez-vous une source qui dit la vérité sur la police, ou une source qui présente ses excuses à la police ? Parce qu’il semble que vous préfériez cette dernière solution. De l'aveu de Radio-Canada, ils n'ont aucune autre vérification que « des soins auraient été administrés » hormis la propre parole de la police. Pensez-vous qu’il s’agit d’un journalisme responsable que de répéter les affirmations auto-décriminalisantes d’une organisation connue pour ses mensonges sans confirmation supplémentaire?

    Il semble que vous jugez la crédibilité d'une source d'information selon qu'elle vous vend ou non des publicités.

  • ABC News: Chicago police tweak mass arrests policy ahead of Democratic National Convention
  • During the mass protest that erupted in Chicago over George Bush Jr.'s announcement that US troops were going into Iraq, the Mayor colluded with Police to unconstitutionally mass arrest and jail hundreds of peaceful protesters. It took almost a decade, but the city paid out a huge settlement to those arrested while engaged in first amendment protected activities.
