Something that holds meaning for at least one of you. Something that isn't just what you talk about, because that's what people talk about. Something related to your actions, plans, fears, dreams, regrets, hope and experiences in the real world.

Make sure not to install google apps when using LineageOS.

...and if you prefer a smartphone being smart, don't install PostmarketOS just yet.

I get the hate on Chomsky, but what's wrong with linguists? I've had a really nice time with a couple of linguists and their writing.

In some areas, spoofing your number is relatively easy - illegal in most places, impossible in some. This could be a way to get going without buying countless virtual numbers.

For more complex tactics, we'd need to know more about the target: OS, model, OS version, attack surfaces (in this case that could be Facebook Messenger, Signal, SMS and such), estimated location and anything else you got.

People are not equal. They can never be made equal. We can seek to make people as equal as possible, but it will require great amounts of force and coercion.

Some people are sharper than others. Some are more empathetic than others. Some are really good at driving fast cars, while others are great at writing music. There's those who's either not good at much, or don't want to be good at anything.

You cannot make anyone something they're not. If one person is a great speaker, able to inspire lots of folks with their knowledge and the ways they express it, they will gain respect, and thus will rise above others in the social hierarchy. This is all cool and healthy, as long as the speaker is doing what they're doing out of free will, while the listeners listen freely, because they feel they're gaining something of value.

You cannot do anything to fight that, and you should not do anything either. Problems arise when social hierarchies become rigid hierarchies, when ranks are pronounced and social influence (or power, call it what you will) becomes detached from the reality of the involved peoples.

If your vision of a bright future involves suppressing natural talent, will and personality, then I want no part of it.

Strive for equal opportunity. Strive for cooperation, and support of those who are, for one reason or another, unable to make use of that opportunity. Strive for egalitarianism; not unity or equality.

I really like some writers because of their writing style. Then there's some I like, but read critically, because they offer a good deal of crap along with their gold. I like a lot of readers that I barely agree with, and wouldn't really want to give the idea that what I read is what I am.

I got it installed just fine on Arch, it's neat and seems to be well maintained. Fucking wild that I can download the entire anarchist library in 180MB. What's next, gravity defying cars running on plastic?

If it's run in series, it's usually around 1300VAC distributed amongst the lights. If not, I'm pretty sure it's somewhere between 120 and 240VAC. Plenty of power to keep a miner going, and then some. I doubt the streetlights themselves would be affected.

I'm thinking the most viable strategy is setting up an electricity box at night - one that looks much like the ordinary electricity boxes - and running some fat wire down the pole to the box. That'd mean plenty of space (for a PSU, a miner and maybe a fan), and, if the wirerun is done correctly, could look very legitimate.

It is a good deal of work, but for passive, constant income, I'd say it's not too bad.

A little fast on the gun? They're showing no signs of hostility, and I really doubt giving an estimate server cost compromises opsec.

Perhaps defining how it sets itself apart from ordinary ideology.

Ideology of any kind has proven itself to be nothing but a quick way to systematically degenerate a movement. Anarchy does not have a leader; no author; no holy bible. It is the simple effect of human intuition, given meaning and expanded by thinking people - greatly empowered in the cultural library through decades of struggle at the hand of the controller.
