Already the different arms of surveillance capitalism are joining forces to face the upcoming threat of public backlash. Facebook will soon be forced to join the cartel thanks to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and at that point Amazon and Apple will probably be dragged along just to compete. All of surveillance capitalism under one trust.

One thing antinatalism misses is how our material conditions influence our decision to have children. As you said, the working class is pressured to not have children - but that's only in post-industrial nations. In industrializing nations which have yet to implement safety nets, children are people's only retirement plan. What is someone supposed to do if they get injured or sick or too old to work, and they don't have children to take care of them?

Mushrooms. It's irrational, but I subconsciously associate mushrooms with rot and mold and decay. I just can't bring myself to enjoy them without that little thought in the back of my head. I can still eat them if I don't think about it, and even enjoy the taste! But if I spend even a second thinking I'll lose my appetite.

If collapse is a near certainty within decades, then I'm sorry, but we don't have a "a very long time to humanely reduce total population to a size that is sustainable.” That's why people say his book supports racist attitudes to population control. There's no way to "humanely" address population in a timespan that matters. It's not worth discussing unless you want to start killing people.

Evidence suggests that these mass strandings are caused by LFA sonar. It has a verity of health effects from hemorrhaging by resonating in air spaces, decompression sickness from vibrations causing supersaturated gas to nucleate, and pain/disorientation leading them into shallow waters or to rise too quickly. Not much will likely be done about this either, because despite rulings saying that wildlife needs to be protected, in 2008 Supreme Court decided that that sonar was vital to national security and outweighed environmental concerns.

If we put all the reactionaries in communal barracks and feed them nutrient paste, they're never going to integrate into post-revolutionary society. If that's our goal, then we might as well cut out the middle man and just send the to gulag. But, I don't think we want that. Our generosity should go as far as our material conditions can allow and should have the same basic guarantees for everyone.

Like what is heterosexism and cisgenderism exactly? Is being hetero/cis a crime now

They're forms of bias and discrimination, not just being hetero or cis. Things like misgendering people or not respecting their sexual orientation, that kind of thing.

And what kind of content "promotes the patriarchy"?

Harassing women for nudes, using sexist slurs, posting redpill/incel propaganda, ect.

And if white supremacy is banned then why isn't the supremacy of other races banned as well?

Because we live in a white supremacist society. We punch up, not down.
