Personally, I think people who are struggling should be offered a package deal:
- personal coach
- mind-enhancing medications and drugs
- life lessons in written/audio/video form
That’s what helped me and that’s what’s currently helping my roommate.
If you’re a non-conformist, the usual rules of society don’t apply to you and I think we should pick people like that out very early and put them on a separate trajectory early on, the moment we see them.

Do you know NixOps? The thing that lets you spin up NixOS machines from a simple configuration file that defines setup, software and configs. This is pretty much like that, but for GUIX!
The only thing that seems to work for self development, if you can't get yourself out of your misery, is to have good friends.
If the government REALLY wanted to help people out of their misery, they'd have people whose job was to just go around helping people with stress, etc, and just be pals with them and encourage them to develop themselves.
None of that bureaucracy stuff, just pure goodness to another person, showing consideration, on a government payroll.
The government is too chicken.
December 10th, @YouTube@twitter.com is changing its terms of service; allowing them to refuse service to anyone who is not “commercially viable”.
I haven't logged in to twitter after November 6th and it's been amazing 23 days here. The kind of ideas, content, sensitivity, commitment, zeal and interaction I have had here is incredible.
This gives me hope. Let's not make Mastodon another facebook or twitter. Let's embrace #fediverse as the need of the future.

- More than one seller for a given good (=/= monopoly).
- More than one buyer of a given good (=/= monopsony)
- Symmetry of information between buyers and sellers, esp. regarding
A simple look at most "markets" today is enough to realize none of these conditions are realized.
The "Free" market is a scam. Always has been and always will be.
