Safehouse lesson time for leftists! Because like burner phones this is very hard to manage, harder than you think.
Before we begin, let me give some background. I’ve been living this life for five years, and so this kind of safety is part of my everyday life. Threats against me included at least one, possibly two, international assassination attempts. My stakes are high.

One can recognize two things: Pink Floyd’s discography is nothing but solid, immortal bangers, and every single thing they wrote after 1973 is self-indulgent whining about the record industry, and really not that deep at all.
Wish You Were Here — recording industy
Animals — recording industry as an element of capitalism
The Wall — recording industry that makes you go on tour
The Final Cut — actually just a Roger Waters album
The Division Bell — the recording industry in court

It’s Friday night in Berlin and I find myself on a train again. Summer is waning in the city. The air is cool enough to ask for a light layer, and the sun sets at a reasonable hour.
The moon hangs yellow towards the west, and I’m riding to it from my Lichtenberg flat, Richtung Alexanderplatz, where I’ll be attending yet another demo for yet another trans person whose life was taken by a bigot. I’ve been to more memorials than parties lately.
