"We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings." - Ursula K LeGuin

Good morning comrades. If you're feeling down, if you're feeling like the spiral we're in it's inevitable and unending, remember: that thinking serves the neoliberal establishment. No act of resistance is too large or too small.

Do something kind and subversive today. Do something that trades in the ineffable.

Lese gerade den Bericht der Kommission "Wachstum, Strukturwandel und Beschäftung" ("Kohlekommission") und es ist einfach nur schrecklich. Beispiel:
>Zur Umsetzung empfiehlt die Kommission freiwillige Maß­nahmen, als einvernehmliche Verhandlungslösung mit den Betreibern für Braunkohlekapazitäten und als freiwillige Stilllegungsprämie für Steinkohlekapazitäten.

The crossing in front of my flat got this nice gadget installed.
At day, you see a bit of plastic and solar cells. At night, you see that there is a ring of red led which flash after each other, so looks like a 'light running in circles'. There is a proximity sensor inside, when a car approaching the frequency of the flash gets increased. So, as soon as you see the crossing from far, you can guess from the frequency whether other cars are approaching or not.
