If you have any sympathy for unhinged citizens of NATO countries, you might as well hope Russia goes down the gutter. It is these genocide apologia maniacs who wish a complete wipeout of democratic diplomacy or a middle ground.
I said genocide apologia maniacs because most people do whitewash USA genocides simultaneously, like this Finn did in a reply to this person: https://old.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/11sv7gc/linux_kernel_networking_driver_development/jcgf9sz?context=3
This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.
If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.
We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
Because the current sanction is going sooo well right now.
Goes to show that even “free” software is not a cure against the Hegemon.
Seriously, like how much of Linux (and “free” software more broadly) development is funded by the US military-intelligence-surveillance industrial complex? Red Hat/IBM for one is all up in that. You know, the IBM that supplied the Nazis with their census taking machines and the Red Hat that’s hard at work optimizing software for Predator drones.
And I can’t even tell you how many open-source/free/“Libre” apps and devs have UA flags all over their websites. Look at the version names of Notepad++.
“Free” software is no cure to the hegemon when the hegemon makes and breaks what’s allowed to be “free.”
Stand with Ukraine, Boycott Beijing 2022, Stand with Hong Kong, Free Uyghur, Gilet Jaune (the only non-cringe one), Je Suis Charlie, and Tiananmen June Fourth Incident
And this is just from the current version down to version 6.6.4.
Precisely. And I am very much unsure what will shake this grasp
In India, people are conditioned to write bad subpar code and there is no tech culture really, and there is a lot of submissive behaviour towards USA. How true is this for China, Russia, South America and Africa? Is our only challenge the lack of privileged material conditions to prosper creativity? Or are there others like draining away brains to Anglosphere tech giants for money? Or are there problems also having a root in bad programming, privacy and security practices?
I love working with ARM hardware. As a matter of fact, TankieReplyBot runs entirely off of one Raspberry Pi where it consumes almost no resources and actually utilizes all the CPU cores. Most of the services I run are on Raspberry Pis and other ARM SBCs. It turns out that when you don’t use unnecessary abstraction to get programs finished a few weeks early, you can actually do a lot with so-called “weak” hardware. Who would’ve thought? At this point, when I see Python/JS bloatware, I just ignore it and look for alternatives, or make an alternative if there isn’t one and I feel like it.
I don’t think it’s about privileged material conditions. We, IT people, had enjoyed a significant uptick in quality of life over the past twenty or so years. We’re still proles, mind you, but the ruling class had deemed it necessary to toss us some crumbs. Did it lead to anything positive? Hard to tell. But now our “privileged” position is being revoked and it leads to severe crisis of “faith” for the lack of a better word.
Overall I don’t expect tech culture to improve overmuch until the mode of production changes - until socialism replaces capitalism. Only then could necessity-based development replace the current profit-driven motive. Until then - bloatware will be our loyal companion.
Unhinged behavior from that maintainer. How do they not realize how racist it is to deny a patch due to someone’s nationality?
“Well dey are hwyte so it’s not racist” plus some excuses about “authoritarian regime” and “slave mentality”
Western media-military succeeded in creating their Reich I think. Their goal has always been to manufacture consent, and the conditions were prepared for it to happen, by brainwashing all their citizens in what is the biggest panopticon in human history.
Last year we had that node-ipc NPM incident, now we have this. In between, there have been plenty smaller attempts to cut off Russia and Russians off of global (aka western) internet diaspora from all of Big Tech, and Reddit banning any .ru link posts. There has already been a ban on access to Google Play Store and iPhone support for Russia has been shut down as well, from what I know.
