Yes, I think this is the case, bit there's a fundamental difference between traditional Art Collecting and NFTs, physical Art can be physically touched even if it's value is artificial and it's just fabric and pigments. NFTs are instead totally virtual, even the ones minted in Blockchains are not an "real" object we can even replicate it indefinitely, making forgery meaningless.

Probably there are levels of overanalyzing this and some paranoid worry about it. I bring hauntology, or this idea of "nostalgia of lost futures" bc this current tren of NFTs and PostCovid looks like the DotCom bubble or a 2000's silicon valley futurology

What Burroughs ultimately presents in his political allegory is that totalitarianism, socialism, and democracy — though their techniques differ — have fascist consequences should their visions be attained. (...)

Fascinatingly, and reflective of how anarchists often come to their political conclusions, Burroughs outlines the problems with the popular administrative ideologies before proposing the only other alternative. In so doing, not only does the author legitimize his argument, but he posits how anarchism can remedy the ethical complications of the opposing parties’ principles.

Not sure if Raddle discussed enough Mark Fisher, but more and more I got draw to his concepts of hauntology to explain certain "wtf" moments in the news.

This idea of people investing "real" money in NFTs and Metaverse real estate is ludicrous but it's maybe a sign that we collectively lost hope in any possible future.. we are just "playing" at this point

While the underlying concept is good, the typical foil helmet fails in design and execution. An effective Faraday cage fully encloses whatever it's shielding, but a helmet that doesn't fully cover the head doesn't fully protect it.

In 2005, a group of MIT students, prodded by "a desire to play with some expensive equipment," tested the effectiveness of foil helmets at blocking various radio frequencies.

The helmets shielded their wearers from radio waves over most of the tested spectrum (YouTube user Mrfixitrick likewise demonstrates the blocking power of his foil toque against his wireless modem) but, surprisingly, amplified certain frequencies: those in the 2.6 Ghz ( allocated for mobile communications and broadcast satellites) and 1.2 Ghz (allocated for aeronautical radionavigation and space-to-Earth and space-to-space satellites) bands.

I hate when I can't lit the heater bc I can't pay the electric bill..

My neighbor jokingly said to me: "who is your tenant? We probably should squat this whole building.." -I smiled and agreed before saying goodnight.

The thing is, the building is small I would love to squat it and run it like a good squat.. it's heartbreaking to see kids and families dying in fires bc the electrical connections in the squat was bad (and then there are skinhead attacks against these ppl, bc they are mostly migrants).

Fuck, one week more and I still without energy to simply do the things I like, to read and study what I want..

I was thinking in a reply to this bc your take is what I try to convey in my irl discussions with left activists.

Besides my lack of oratory skills, trying to navigate between different understandings and different ideologies is hard. Whenever I try to bring anything remotely anarchist people shut down or assume the Anarchism™ is that of Ocalan, the anarchy without chaos, or the libertarian-socialism.

Once it was explained that even if the server was physically hijacked it wouldn't contain any sensible info as the postmill don't collect data from the users.

So if you have opsec (the least bare minimum) you would be Ok

Nice response if you are the real Lily May, very sober and unexpected.

Don't bother too much with social media. In no way it represents the world, it's all about the bubble.

And if I am not mistaken you can email the Anarchist Library to remove your text if you want to.

Taking care of oneself and oneself mental health is more important than any internet discussion.
