Are you implying that reform would change anything?

Assuming that states serve the people, and that politicians writing the laws aren't corrupt, and that the laws are written without accidental loopholes... Why would capitalists follow the law when they've already showed they prefer to just maximize profit and pay fines when they're caught (but not really because their lawyers get their fines dismissed anyways).

teaching people how to do stuff is good praxis. I don't think many anarchists believe in "right to repair" but simply want to be able to repair their shit. I don't like the word "right" because is something given by the state top down.

What's stopping the companies from having more control until rossmann can't do tutorials, videos, or repairs anymore?

Nothing?

Do you think what rossmann is doing is good or do you think it will be all in vain in the end?

Begging politicians/capitalists for a compromise while they still fuck us and exploit people in other manners is kinda pointless. Assuming hardware companies follow the law (lol), reform will never change stuff in a satisfying fashion. This is anarchy 101, I'm not sure if I need to say more.

If you weren't to go to the politicians what would you do for right to repair?

There aren't many legal solutions to this problem. He is already doing a lot of them: the videos, the tutorials, the cheap prices for the reparation are all good and effective ways to fight.

"in my day it was called a 'blackboard'. now we have to call it a 'chalkboard'. what about the whiteboard huh? isn't that racist?"

This one is funny, the rest was depressing. I hope the food, at least, was nice.

If I recall correctly, there's a hardware switch between the antenna and the CPU so you can at least have it track you (if it does) only when you want it.

I think the librem 5 is even more privacy focused. Although its specs aren't good and it's really expensive.

there's no need to be more scared of china than other governments imo.

Saw bad trip this week and it's a prank movie, but surprisingly wholesome. Usually these types of movies mock the people being pranked, but this time we're mostly laughing at the actors.

I recommend it if you're into the eric andre show or borat.
