Imagine if we didn't incentive people who write papers to inflate their works with unnecessary crap...

I want to read more 2-page papers, not skim through 12-pagers.

- good: eveyone can move to an instance that suits them

@douginamug total skepticism is impossible. Hume writes "No one can persevere in it even for a few hours."

Such philosophical reasoning as Hume's cannot destroy our instinctual beliefs in an external world, that fire burns, that the sun will rise tomorrow. Through species instinct we have animal faith in the world of the senses, & thus we are able to function in the world. Animal faith, not philosophy, guides our lives.

We at Mutual Interest do this. We believe anti-capitalist medias should be organised as coops. We are owned by readers & writers and funds are distributed using participatory budgeting where members vote for their favourite articles.

The capitalist corporate structure pushes lot of the left media to produce clickbait that damages the left. Many publish outrageous and obnoxious articles to get people to "hate" share and click them.

I've heard of Participatory Democracy a bunch of times, but I only recently came across Prefigurative Politics en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prefigur

This is where (activist) groups/orgs attempt to mirror their aims in their practices, i.e. groups that ultimately want non-authoritarian society do so in a non-authoritarian way (contrast to 'vanguardism')

"This is what democracy looks like", "Can't destroy the master's house with the master's tools", etc.

Someone posts something which could be reactionary, racist, regressive, etc—but you're not sure. Do you tend to:

@serindelaunay I feel like you made a change to botsin.space/@Truchet_Nested recently? I like the development :) The patterns are mesmerizing, thanks.
