The upgrade to Orwells dystopia, removing empathy from authorities so they harm other humans from a distance. It's backed by Peter Thiel, yes that Thiel of Palantir. Use that on anyone, pretty soon you will see it used on everyone. Not just those you think are undesirable.

Their wife posted a screenshot saying they linked a picture that they themselves took and uploaded to Wikipedia. A Sony camera I believe. IDK if I can find the link again but I'll look.

IDK who Foone is though, but everyone is talking about htem so must be important?

"Buckminster Fuller set design back years by making everyone think that all architects do is speculate about dome-based utopian societies" <- this is a real take that i saw once

In the Netherlands there has been a housing crisis building over the last decade and a half of neoliberal government policy. It has come to a head after a controversial law passed years ago that criminalised squatting under most conditions. Squatting continues because #WetOfGeenWet #KrakenGaatDoor (law or no law, squatting keeps going).

Recently a hotel was squatted in Amsterdam, dubbed hotel Mokum, after the Jiddish word for Amsterdam. A few days ago the government of Amsterdam warned they will evict the squatters over fire safety concerns. This is a clear lie as the fire department and municipal government checked the building and fire safety agreements were made with the squatters, the squatters turned to a fast court case to appeal this decision to evict.

Today people protested to keep hotel Mokum squatted, to no avail. Police brutality and violent eviction ensued, but the housing crisis goes on, so squatting will too. The police can break bones but not the movement, solidarity to my comrades in Amsterdam, stay strong. :solidarity:
