Millennials who got an anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist message from the Brave Little Toaster, it's not an accident!

The film is based on a book series by Thomas M Disch #BraveLittleToaster #movie #Millennials
The main theme in Disch's series is criticism of planned obsolescence, which is what "The Cutting Edge" song in the 1987 film is about (CW: there is Black- and yellowface in this clip)
We joke this film made us into hoarders, but it taught us that things that are old are not inherently worthless #movies #Millennials

A thread about the English Establishment, state psychopathy, #COVID19… and why it really matters how people in power think. 🧐✊🇪🇺🇻🇳#history #ToriesOut #resist 🦠
The popular idea of a colonial official during the British Empire days was of a paternal figure dispensing justice and spreading civilisation, as in the 1935 film “Sanders of the River” (see pic), a grossly patronising tale set in colonial #Nigeria... 😬🇳🇬 #BritishEmpire #Korda
The reality was, of course, very different. Consider the work of Charles Callwell, a British soldier with much colonial experience, pictured here on the WWI Caucasus Front as a Major-General in 1916. #Callwell #SmallWars #ColonialViolence 🇹🇷🇷🇺

National economy competition makes nations open up earlier and offer more human lives. All for the national wealth-generators to start one step ahead after corona is gone.
Seems US is leading.

Sacrificing humanity at the altar of profit. How much more shabby can humankind become?
How much longer are we going to tolerate the heartless death cult of capitalism?

What is the real reason, the root cause for so many people dying in times of #corona?
It's #capitalism, not the #Virus.

The collapse of the Amazon Rainforest is looking pretty irrefuckingversible as well.

Will it be on the path to total destruction by the end of the decade?

Could be...

Pappelapapp braucht euch.
Die Frist von HPA und Bullen, das Baumhaus im Vollhöfner Wald abzubauen, endet am Mittwoch dem 23.10. um 12:00 Uhr mittags. Dass wir dem nicht nachkommen werden, versteht sich von selbst.
Deshalb braucht es euch. Je mehr Menschen im Wald sind, desto komplizierter wird die Räumung. Auch Aktionen, die die Polizei an einen anderen Orten bindet, können eine Räumung erschweren.
Kommt Mittwoch so früh wie möglich in den Vollhöfner Wald, da damit zu rechen ist, dass die Polizei versuchen wird, die Zugänge dicht zu machen. Am besten schnappt ihr euch eure Schlafsachen und kommt schon am Dienstag.

Die folgende Pressemitteilung entspricht der Meinung der Verfasser*innen und ist nicht allgemein gültig für die gesamte Waldbesetzung.

1. HPA mächtiger als der Senat
2. Unglaubwürdige HPA und Wirtschaftsbehörde,
wir bleiben!
3. Drohende Räumung
1. HPA mächtiger als der Senat

Selbst in der parteipolitischen Landschaft gibt es eine eindeutige Mehrheit, dass der Vollhöfner Wald bleiben soll*1. Trotzdem gibt es vorerst nur ein Moratorium bis Februar 2020, in dem nicht gerodet werden soll.
Warum kann sich die Politik nicht gegenüber der HPA durchsetzen und jetzt eine langfristige Lösung und Absicherung für den Erhalt des Vollhöffner Waldes durchsetzen? Die HPA schiebt eine Entscheidung bis zu den nächsten Wahlen im Februar weiter auf:

I just had this thought “OMG I haven’t published anything in so long! I’m a mess.”

Follow up thought: “I published a book a year ago. I’ve been promoting it ever since & working on the next one & publishing public writing. That thought is capitalism speaking, not me.”
I have to actively work to unlearn the hyper-productivity I once valued more than my own happiness or health. I have to actively resist the pressure to outpace academic #capitalism. I have to critique the system, not myself.

#academictwitter #capitalismkills #workinprogress
Addendum: Unless, of course, I am perpetuating oppressive systems & doing harm. Then, I need to critique & examine myself. But most of the time, it’s the system. 🙃

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
