  • Support a Free Software project, either with your programming skillz or funding
  • Follow in the footsteps of No Fun Friday, become a 1337 antifa haxer
  • Put up stickers and posters in your city
  • Smash surveillance cameras with a hammer, or put stickers over them (I use 'Stop Control' stickers from a local anarchist space)
  • Help the poor in your area (just avoid making it some kind of marketing for anarchism - just help to help, nothing more)
  • Grab your guitar and go play some anarchist songs on the street
  • Print some zines, go to a busy place and hand them out
  • Try going vegetarian or vegan (remember, all change starts with yourself)
  • Join protests and other movements in your city or cities close to you (there's plenty, trust me)

Freelance python web developer here, my vote goes to Python too. It's simple once you learn to think 'programatically', there's no strange requirements when it comes to syntax, and you can easily learn many other languages once you get the hang of it.

It's also incredibly versatile. You can make tiny scripts, huge logical applications, webshops made fully custom with awesome CMS's such as Wagtail - the possibilities are almost endless.

If you're feeling experimental and want to try something new, that might be the bright new future, but could also be nothing but trash, try a functional programming language such as Elixir, and learn the framework that goes along with it for web development, Phoenix.

Good luck (:

An anarchist gathering place in my town has a poster out front that reads:

'Nobody tells the truth
Nobody cares about you
Nobody will keep their promises
Nobody will represent your interests
Nobody can make decisions on your behalf
Vote for nobody!'

I can guarantee you that your second victim will come to regret their decision (if you can call it such - children are not capable of making such a decision, and should never be put in a situation in which they have to) deeply.

There is no way that fucking children is alright. Don't defend this sick, twisted view. There is no good way to be a paedophile, they should all be placed against a wall and shot by the dawn of day.

We need a state people for:

providing food, clothing and shelter to the poor
providing medical care and education to all
building roads, train lines, water pipes and sewers
funding research, including testing of pharmaceuticals
protecting public health
defending the nation
prosecuting perpetrators of crimes whether committed on a street or in a bank office
regulating businesses so they don't harm our health or our environment
ensuring workers can form unions; preventing exploitative working conditions
making sure employers don't steal employees' wages
inspecting foods for safety
Making sure products contain what they claim to contain and the stated amount, too
banning digital products that do DRM or censorship
reducing CO2 emissions to save us from global heating disaster
ensure that chemical products are not toxic
and protecting human rights for all

The Librem5 phone is aimed at anyone who's concerned about either the privacy, freedom or security of smartphones. It doesn't solve all of the issues in these fields with modern smartphones, but it sure does a good job and comes very close (at a price).

I hope I understood your question correctly.

As far as I've read, capitalism will at some point crack under its own weight, due to some of the fundamental contradictions in the nature of capitalism - but it will take some time for us to get there. The other possibility is a popular revolution; if the majority of the public assumes anti-capitalism, it won't be long before there's not a single wheel turning in the exploitation machinery.

It's a paid VPN as far as i remember (I'm not certain, you should check it yourself).

... but VPN isn't a must in most countries. I've been pirating tons and tons of stuff (about three movies a week for five years) and I've only gotten one letter from a law firm telling me to pay them some minor fee. I never paid, and they never followed up on it.

There must be some advantages to .sh since it's recommended in the sub, but I'll go with the FOSS solution without a doubt.

e: The source code for .sh can be found here: https://github.com/popcorn-official/, it claims to be FOSS, but there's some minor copyright limitations. Not a big deal. Go with whatever you want, they're essentially the same.
