  • Why is the entire tech industry imploding at once?  (The Atlantic)

    Because you locked people into their homes while pumping trillions of dollars into the economy, and then hiked interest rates to combat the inevitable inflation, creating and then bursting a massive bubble.

    You idiots.

1 Ugh.  Mastodon.social will only link to instances in its list of "here, try these" if they commit to blocking hate speech, homophobia, transphobia, white supremacy, etc.
I bet anti-white racism is OK, though.

2 My big anger point with the Mastadon thought policing was ableism.

My circumstances may include a fair amount of long term disability, and I would staunchly defend ableism. 

The woke idea of how to 'help' disabled is about the most insane, most useless, and most destructive approach possible. 

Just about everything they condemn as 'ableism' is good, productive ways of handling the challenges.  They mix that into the same category as a thug going around beating to death people in wheelchairs, or whatever.  This pretty much does not happen, except at the hands of government doctors.

3 My limited experience with seeing people throw charges of ableism suggest that people who would accuse others of ableism are on the edge of viewing Harrison Bergeron as a how-to guide.
