Législatives 2024 : « J’y croyais à cet Etat qui aide le peuple. J’ai été communiste, socialiste, mais ils ont tous capitulé face au capitalisme. Alors, j’ai voté blanc »
  • Qu'il se soit senti trahi par Hollande je peux comprendre. Mais j'espère qu'il s'est rendu compte que voter social-démocrate c'est pas voter contre le capitalisme. Ce qui est bizarre c'est que cette élection semble être la plus prometteuse pour une gauche moins capitaliste et c'est maintenant qu'il baisse les bras.

  • “May have just legalized murder by one individual”: Experts alarmed at “stunning” SCOTUS ruling
  • You know in the game Secret Hitler when the board has sufficiently advanced into fascism that it becomes strategic for the liberals to vote fascism and unlock a bullet? Honestly makes me think of that.

    Not saying this is what needs to happen. I honestly don't know how americans can do to get out of their quagmire.

  • Anon thinks about Google
  • Ooh, nice. Thanks for making me discover it! I would have liked a FOSS alternative, but this is pretty good.

    Edit: argh, it's nice for local urban commute, but it doesn't work outside or between big cities :(

  • OSM can technically replace Gmaps for shops and restaurants if enough people were using and updating it.

    However, Gmaps in unbeatable for public transportation :( no alternative at all

  • Exclusive: Majority Of Voters Want Next Government To Take UK Back Into European Union
  • [..] 43% in favour of rejoining the bloc, compared with 40% who want to stay out. But once the 18% who say they don’t know are taken out, 52% back EU membership with 48% opposing it [...]

    That's not a "majority of voters", that's a "majority of people who report to know what they want". These are not the same populations.

  • Website link to home screen independent from browser

    Hi everyone. You can easily add a website shortcut to the home screen through a browser ("add to home screen"). However, if I change browser or if I need to clear the browser data, these links disappear. Maybe I'm using too unstable of a browser, but I'm tired of having to recreate my shortcuts.

    Is there any way of adding a website shortcut to the home screen in a browser-agnostic way?

    Alternative to Google's Enhanced Location?

    Assisted GNSS is pretty handy. My phones gets my approximate location very fast. If I want to plan a route from where I am, I don't have to wait a couple minutes for the GNSS signal to be received (if I'm in a location where I can receive it).

    But obviously, waiting a couple minutes before starting a journey is acceptable to avoid being tracked by Google, so I disabled the Enhanced Location mode on my Android phone.

    Is there a private alternative for A-GNSS?

    What is your opinion on state openness and public scrutiny?

    Since I've joined Lemmy, I've been trying to learn more about leftist political systems and how current activists would like to implement them. I'm also interested in building a nuanced opinion on historical implementations of Marxism.

    In my understanding, public scrutiny can be multiple. About methods: free press, direct reports from the state, NGO or foreign observers; and about subjects: military, internal or external affairs, industrial.

    What effect does state transparency have on society (good or bad), and would you prefer to live in an open political system personally? Which kind of transparency?

    During the cold war, how open and transparent were the USA and USSR? How open are the US, China, Russia and the EU currently?

    Do you know resources that approach these subjects that I could read?
