"Have these gentlemen ever seen a revolution? A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is the act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon"

Chinese Brands Will Sell A Third Of The World's Cars By 2030: Study
  • I think we need more govt subsidies to green tech and less subsidies to the fossil industry, i don't care if it's all a big 8d chess move to make us all speak Mandarin Chinese, the important bit is not dying rn.

  • Are you a 'tankie'
  • And they sometimes get called "tankies" too by people to the right of them. That's why I both think it's a useless term (if everybody is a tankie, then nobody is) and why I think I fall in the definition (as most leftists do, I've seen pretty mild social democrats being called "tankies" by liberals)

    Plus ultimately these blanket descriptions are pretty useless IMO, you'll find extremely heated debates between "tankies" themselves on many topics, there's no consensus, and there are many different ideologies "tankies" subscribe to. It would be like saying that Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and Greens are all the same thing. We could call them "dronies" maybe.

  • Are you a 'tankie'
  • YES

    Everybody to the left of biden is considered a tankie nowdays, and I'm proud of being to the left of (and opposed to) genocide enablers.

  • about china
  • I can't say for sure but it's certainly one of the countries in the world.

  • President Biden announces a series of tariffs on green energy products from China.
  • Collcata verba sunt accuratius modulatiusque.

  • Top Secret: In a 2018 letter, Netanyahu asks Qatar to fund Hamas
  • No wonder, all far-right projects like his need a common enemy to unite against. If there's none, just buy one.

  • Security
  • Hell naw, fuck Microsoft ๐Ÿ–•

  • 50% of being a Linux user is hate towards Windows so I'd say it fits

  • Launching A $60+ Game Seems Like A Bad Idea Right Now
  • This would be true if we lived in a world where salary increases matched inflation. I make ~5% more on paper than I made a couple years ago, yet we had terrible inflation in the eurozone, my salary was effectively cut.

  • What kind of institutional gaslighting is this?
  • "we have nothing to complain about, but we'll still complain because fuck the poor, am I right?"

  • Is lemmy being gatekept by animal ag shills?
  • ๐Ÿ˜

  • A few drinks in, and I immediately start talking about the inevitable collapse of humanity in the hands of capitalism.
  • The fact that a worker who barely makes ends meet pays 10-20 times the taxes Amazon pays is... Fascinating in a dark way.

    Similar to feudal peasants that used to pay up in the form of free labor and produce, while their noble overlords enjoyed massive privileges and zero taxes.

  • Chad Asks US to Withdraw Troops From Key Outpost Ahead of Election
  • Chad about to become gigachad

  • Iran launches dozens of drones toward Israel
  • They weren't colonized that's for sure, they were (mostly) Muslim Arabs in a country where being a Muslim/Arab was normal and didn't imply you had less rights or straight up didn't deserve life.

  • O.J. Simpson, Athlete Whose Trial Riveted the Nation, Dies at 76
  • Well he was world famous, I'm not from the US myself but most genX and older (~40+) knew about him and his trial at least superficially

  • How disheartening for Snowden to do the right thing and be stranded in Russia.
  • His plan A wasn't even to escape to Russia, the EU and USA blocked the Ecuadorian plane who was trying to rescue him.

  • www.nytimes.com O.J. Simpson, Athlete Whose Trial Riveted the Nation, Dies at 76

    He ran to football fame and made fortunes in movies. His trial for the murder of his former wife and her friend became an inflection point on race in America.

    Be an underpaid babysitter for a rich fuck!

    Seriously, "Ensure the CEO sleeps before a certain time"

    With all those skills, tasks and resposabilites they're asking for a fucking full-stack babysitter...

    CloudLinux?

    So, I'm looking to rent a VPS to host a site and stuff, there's a reasonably priced provider in my country, the only thing is when I went to check the OS the machine runs I was expecting something like Ubuntu server, Debian or maybe some RHEL-compatible, what TF is cloud Linux? All that I could find online is the company's site and not much more. Somebody knows if it's a debian or a RHEL-like? What package system they use and such? Thanks.
