Uh you need to get over your strong biases and limited perception of what anti-capitalists look like. And I have to say although yes browsing through darkweb, proxies, and using encryption are all generally good practice (with some caveats) there is something fantastic about simple low overhead websites that just serve text without any filler, website like that can be self hosted without relying on as much of the corporate infrastructure. Anyways pretty much all the comments you've left on this site are needlessly hostile.

Speaking of consistency, I'm thinking of chicken nuggets: the most Alienated food

Completely reformed re textured, re coloured, re flavoured,

bland yet Almost universally apealing.

Eating them makes you feel like you have control over your life,

You don't think of a chicken.

It's a perfect example of the black box of industrialized food.

It almost transcends class by being ubiquitous

It offers escape like all the best commodities do. A bite of capitalist utopia.

Now would you like honey mustard or sweet and sour sauce with that?

I've had moments where I've changed my cooking to mostly vegan, I just find that meat is so available in my culture, I think knowing that a food is consistently available increases my habitually eating it, I'm admittedly a pretty habitual eater, there's a pizza place near my work and I eat there almost every day, it's ironic since I've had bouts where I haven't eaten cheese, bread, or meat but now I eat shitty pizza from the same place again and again, they have only three types of pizza available by the slice and I usually grab the meat pizza because they just have a lot more calories, if they had good slices available with a good selection of vegetables I'd probably go for that... Why did I return to eating meat? I don't doubt there was probably some perception of class dynamics involved subliminally. The idea of meat and potatoes, after a day of work and a fourty ounce of old English split with my roommates had a certain romanticism to me at the time, the cheap sausages I bought were always the most consistent part of my day unlike the vegetables I could afford which were always bundles of vegetables that were already going bad. I think there's a demand for consistency in food especially from people who are experiencing a lot of chaos in their lives, you see it in children who are picky eaters, growing up is a chaotic time and most children have no control over their lives, we hold onto ideas of control that are related to the foods we eat. I think that meat is so culturally entrenched that it won't change any time soon, especially with the fast food industry.

I tried to strip it of metadata, but idk there might be some just from it being on my phone. Any arbitrary binary data or file can be sent this way, including scripts and executable files, or password protected archives for that matter. Lots of tools out there to remove metadata, know less for things to remove digital watermarking, however shrinking things down filtering and compressing heavily probably would make a lot of watermarks less readable.

I used to be a little obsessed with steganography (hiding data in plain sight) in digital files, for instance you can encode digital information in the noise floor of a wav/FLAC/alac file, I believe there's tools to do the same for images And video as well. When both encryption and steganography are both used there is complete plausible deniability. This can even be extended into an analog domain, with encoding digital information onto the bias of a magnetic tape, or printing pages that have warping In particular parts that can be compared to a universally available reference image.

I love (/s) how the idea of efficiency introduces a profit motive into the medical system, there's this idea that because something works for a statistically significant group of people that when it's not working for someone it's their fault, the professionalization and of medicine, as well as the moral system the legal system places far to many limits on patients bodily autonomy. It's especially ironic that some drugs that are safe to be prescribed by a doctor are illegal to own without a prescription, and in some cases with the lack of access to medicine many people are being legally targeted for doing something that would best be described as self-medicating. The idea that drug addiction is seen as a moral crisis that requires punishing behaviours of dependency (that would be seen as normal in non-stigmatized substances) really shows where our society is at.

I kinda feel you here, I live in a city and it kinda freaks me out sometimes, I feel like part of it is sensory overload sometimes, but also this perception that so much of the infrastructure of the city is hostile architecture, how we all put so much into maintaining infrastructure that isn't meant for us... I feel resentment towards the structures that tower above me, sometimes that resentment almost overwhelming, the feeling that the sidewalks is a barrier between my feet and the earth below sometimes I imagine the sewers stretching endless miles below, all the piss and shit of people who can't afford to live any building that isn't scheduled for demolition etc etc etc. Sometimes this feeling of the city being so inherently oppressive, crushes me emotionally into a state of paranoia, depression, anger, or mania. Listening to the endless sirens responding to overdoses, or sometimes at night the eerie silence of a city where people can't afford the time to walk the streets when off work.
