Seven national police officers, called Carabiniers, were stung trying to arrest the beekeepers and move the beehives out of the street, police officials said, and were taken to the hospital.

Bee violence? Is it violence if a police person gets hurt while actively arresting someone while taking inadequate safety precautions.

I listened to the full interview. Deeply disturbing but very revealing to hear his blend of mea culpa, deranged conspiracies, psychedelic new-age trip ramble, and occasional undisguised unashamed white supremacy and fascism, and how he kept bringing up Ghandi and non-violence. I love Channel 5, how they just let this guy ramble.

Reply to comment by ziq in Learning about anprim and anticiv by SnowCode

using a computer is a failed anprim?

Not owning the means of production is a failed communist? [...] Anprims are caged birds just like everyone else. They're just more aware of it.

That is such a sweet and empathetic way of thinking of it. Love it.

At least we can try breaking to-a-lesser-degree out of the planned-obsolescence cage, e.g. by running free / libre OS on used / discarded windows-laptops that can't update to a supported version. I feel like participating on Raddle is also part of breaking free of the Facebook cage or Reddit cage or whatever people are on / in.

/u/SnowCode If you've just bought a brand new iPhone or Win11 laptop then arguably that could be viewed as "failed anprim"..? Perhaps I am just pouring out micro consumer nonsense here, but whatever.

Here's a shitty review from the guardian, because why wouldn't they? "broad potshots and a smug superiority tanks his message"

As opposed to the stammering of the panic-attacked Mindy, McKay browbeats at high decibels; his technique is much closer to Dibiasky’s on-the-air screaming that we’re all going to die.

YES, THAT'S THE POINT!!! WE ARE!!!

Except that his script states the obvious as if everyone else is too stupid to realize it and does so from a position of lofty superiority that would drive away any partisans who still need to be won over.

Better tone down the alarmism to not scare the climate deniers, oh yes of course. It's the messenger who is delivering the message wrong, yea, not people being too apathetic to listen, no.

The character making it out of this film least-scathed is Timothée Chalamet’s Yule, a young skate rat hanging out around the hometown to which Dibiasky eventually returns.

Okay, I can agree with the guardian about Yule being adorable.

Jonah Hill is way too good at being casually scornful with "Sorry, you just look so bad when you cry," and all that.

It's one of those radical yet accessible films, like Beatriz at Dinner, that are great for watching with liberal friends and family who aren't yet ready to watch Dominion.

No spoilers, but isn't Timothée Chalamet just the sweetest? "Dr. Mindy, can I be vulnerable in your car?"

Loved it too!

Some people were even forcibly admitted after fighting white authorities. The institution closed in 1934 after operating for about 30 years, but not before about one in four of its 400 patients died.

How infinitely shameful and evil to run these extermination camps. The world saddens me beyond emotional capacity. Why do we keep doing this? Thank you Van Spronsen.
