Maybe people read it to get to know what nazism is? To know their enemy? I read it for this purpose and I think most antifascists should read it. Hitler's views were not very different from usual right-wing populism of his time, he doesn't really propose exterminating Jews in "Mein Kampf", his antisemitism there is of course strong, but it was not that different from other conservative politicians of his time.

Rich kids become corporate developers and are making apps based on corporate infrastructure such as AWS, using corporate mindset and philosophy. Maybe that's because open source culture is not really agreeing with conservative cult of private property? It is not hard to avoid using AWS but you got to have either mindset of I want to do things differently or just not have money, because aws is expensive

I like the point that nudity is sexualized and it shouldn't be, but I'm not really sure we can get rid of sexualization. People are socialized to sexualization of body, and that is very strong emotional and physical habit that is difficult to root out. Can you really avoid sexual impulses when being around naked around other naked attractive people? And if you can't how do you deal with that? I know some pre-modern cultures in Africa somehow dealt with that so this is certainly possible, but not sure how you can do it in modern societies.

"becoming taboo" is too strong a word. Tumblr banned porn, UK tries to limit access to porn to underage people, but that doesn't mean it becomes taboo. It's less of taboo than several years in the past, I've seen people with pornhub sticker on their cars, something difficult to imagine several years ago.

It is also worth thinking how porn affects our views of women, mainstream porn usually is based on scenario where women is eagerly following commands from man, it all resolves around desires of men, it is produced for men, it stages men power over women. Porn is just propaganda of patriarchy.
