What about all the Chinese military outposts is Philippine and Vietnamese territorial waters?

Might be possible to use with Lemmy as well (Maybe not if it uses the Mastodon client API)

This was discussed before and I think the consensus was that this is out of scope for Lemmy for various reasons.

I guess it is a valid opinion, but I disagree on nearly all points the article makes. As the article says, there are valid reasons why the EU is as it is, but no the situation is not so fundamentally different today, and a large part of it is precisely because the national governments want it to be so.

I suspect that they just fail to understand federation 😏

Apprise allows you to send a notification to almost all of the most popular notification services available to us today such as: Telegram, Discord, Slack, Amazon SNS, Gotify, etc.

Maybe you can explain a bit better what makes it unique? I always thought it is just another blogging platform?

As for the other part of your question: social democracy and working though electoral reforms are mostly a scam, for why see this interesting discussion I shared here earlier: https://lemmy.ml/post/383181

You mean Discourse the forum or the chat? The forum is just a nice forum, not better or worse than others. But forums are being abandoned for chat systems like Discord as a rapid pace, so combining the advantages of a forum and a chat system which is what Discourse is trying with this, might turn out to be the only way to save forums.

A large body of the theoretical works of Anarchism precisely deals with revealing what you call “broader” truths (and social dynamics) hidden behind “reflective social” truths. “Debt, the first 5000 years” by the Anarchist David Graeber for example deconstructs the “reflective social” truth of money very well and is a highly recommend read.

Personally, I believe a new system can only “win” against capitalism if it is able to deconstruct the hidden false assumptions in it that are essential for it to have become a “reflective social truth”. Marx’s theories of surplus labor and worker alienation are a vital but sadly insufficient part of that.

Both, that’s what also makes it interesting as it should be easier to move discussions in either direction and thus reduce the problem that so many interesting discussions end up undocumented in closed chat platforms for future searches.

Not federated (yet?) But there is a FOSS Deviant art alternative: https://github.com/Weasyl/weasyl

Pixelfed also has some community features and should work fine for art sharing.

No, some aspects of socialism overlap with (left) anarchism, but we do not have silly concepts like a natural progression from socialism to communism like some MLs believe.

Most anarchists believe in the marketplace of ideas, meaning that multiple systems can co-exist in parallel and that over time the ones providing the best conditions will attract the most participants.

It’s a nice alternative to Discord for communities that already have a Discourse forum.

Maybe there is a way to make an appservice (Matrix) or component (xmpp) extension to link it to a separate existing server.

PinePhone Pro is arguably worse from a price perspective. It uses an older SoC and doesn’t include a rediciously overpriced (due to patents) e-ink screen and still costs that much.

I think it was a fairer deal when the devices they sold were actually cheap… but $400 (before shipping and taxes!) for a PineNote is not cheap at all, and the other recently announced products go in a similar direction.

Literally the book itself is the source. Go read it :p

So then don’t claim that I am wrong about it. Seriously, I am not going to spoonfeed you with Xi’s stupidities.

So now you are the one refusing to read up on the theory… funny.
