Thanks for switching to peertube <3

Edit: Really like your points. I'm not into Buddhism but came to quite similar conclusions.

I had digestion issues today due to a toxin I likely ingested. Thanks for the link anyways, that helped throwing it all out!

Trust me when I say, this is one of the most prominent lines in Black culture today. People forced to grind to survive so they in turn embody the hustle. That line is hustle, personified. One of the greatest issues facing people who want to turn away from this idea is that by and large, they don't have as "sticky" phrases that can be repeated ad-nauseum as a grounding exercise.

It's true that we're evolving toward a new form of hustling especially since the Covid. Platforms like Tiktok have already been putting kids on these rails. Also young kids, sadly.

Pimps are literally the billionaires running these. They hold the keys to using the content for whatever purpose they want. That's worse than PornHub. Then there's plenty of parents who let their kids have their own cell phones... What a shitshow.

Good video. I was just talking to someone about how anti-work is going to be the next social revolution.

This can only happen in rural autonomous communities that reject property and wage slavery. And/or squats, for as long as society's functioning...

Your cities are build around work, cars and now IT. People commodify themselves to mass consumerism because mass consumerism is the easiest solution on the table, so they get to see it eventually as "the only way". The idea of a social revolution in such context is absurd. I thought about it, long ago, but the crushing urban reality is unavoidable, within its confines. If there's a major crisis or collapse they'll just be abandoned, for how they are holding us dependent to large-scale capitalist system.

This is more important than ever to start land projects, or anything that can allow to live outside of the city. It's even becoming a pressing matter, now.

Also: Just wanted to say that I really like your videos. They are always wholesome and empowering. You transport a warm feeling without giving people the feeling that "just leeting the world be as it is and be cool with it". I feel good and also every time have a little more energy to go on. It's really great seeing all the awesome people all around the world sharing such points; this makes me think there is still hope for a good ending of humanity. Thanks for being awesome, thanks for being there <3
