Sometimes I unplug my brainstem from the non-stop crisis liveblog that has become our life in the UK and become briefly conscious of how the media, especially the BBC, has failed us on Brexit in a way that reminds me just a little bit of the collapse of Yugoslavia.

To destroy a successful, stable multi-ethnic state takes years of preparation, before the fuse is lit and events accelerate out of control. The people who set the fire then shrug, act like it was all casus fortuitus, and we all have to react to the new facts on the ground.

A small minority of wreckers can easily unravel a state if they pick at the right threads. But the key is getting the media to ignore wider context / analysis & just focus on the ‘bang bang’ like our non-stop liveblogs — “OMG, Gove just got in his car!”

it's happening folks time to talk about agrarianism in the United Federation of Planets send tweet
Captain Kirk is from Iowa because that tells us he is down-to-earth. Like, a REAL man. It's v important to the theme of TOS that Kirk is the Most Authentic Guy Ever, & Iowa is a symbol of authenticity (see also: US presidential primaries).

Let's look at some pics from the reboot. Kirk was born in 2233, so this car chase takes place around 2240-2245.

While y'all were watching the FX I was checking out the cornfields and let me tell you, THE IMPLICATIONS ARE STAGGERING

1) Iowa is still dominated by corn monoculture in 2240. The scene where Kirk motorcycles to the Enterprise being built IN A CORNFIELD (0:25:00, iTunes won't let me screenshot) clearly shows straight rows w no intercrop, confirming corn monoculture still in place in 2250-2255
¶¶

Midwestern corn monoculture is aided by a private property-based land tenure system. (Corn monoculture can exist *without* private land ownership, but in the event of a different land tenure system, other cropping methods are more likely to emerge.)

This implies that while the Federation is a moneyless society, it is NOT a property-less society. Land ownership is a zero-sum game. The existence of people who own real estate, especially large plots when population is high, implies the existence of haves & have-nots.

In short, the agrarian realities of Federation-era Earth suggests cracks in its post-scarcity public façade. However, the agrarian politics of Iowa merely *suggest* cracks.

It's the Picard family vineyard where shit gets downright dystopian. STAY TUNED
¶¶

The Klamath River Valley — deep northern CA & southern OR — used to be a rich food garden full of acorns, salmon, berries, and bulbs, tended by carefully managed fires. The Karuk, Yurok, Hoopa, & other local tribes were among the wealthiest people on Earth.

Now it's a food desert.

The US declared it "public land," turned it into a timber plantation, and made it a CRIME for Native people to use fire.

Then we dammed the Klamath 4 times in the 1960s (for a measly total of 150 MW) and wrecked the 3rd-largest salmon run on the entire west coast.

Sugar, salty, starch, greasy colonial food had already been available in the Valley for 100+ years by that time thanks to gold prospectors & associated trade.

But it was the end of the salmon runs that did the local people in. There was nothing left to eat BUT colonial food.

I saw many beautiful sights while in Portugal — from mountainside vineyards to the cliffs of the westernmost point in Europe.

But nothing I saw made my jaw drop more than this blurb on Vasco Da Gama in our guidebook.

[Image reading as follows]
Vasco da Gama (c 1460–1524)

In 1498, Vasco da Gama sailed around the Cape of Good Hope and opened the sea route to India. Although the Hindu ruler of Calicut was not excited by his humble offerings of cloth and wash basins, da Gama returned to Portugal with a cargo of spices. In 1502, he sailed again to India, setting up Portuguese trade routes in the Indian Ocean. João III nominated him viceroy of India in 1524, but he died soon after.

Whenever anyone mentions slavery or the atrocities of the past, 3 arguments are always brought up. Let's eliminate them once and for all:

The first is the most popular: It's not white people's fault because Africans sold other Africans.
¶¶

The second argument is that slavery existed since the beginning of time, so why are you whining about American slavery?
¶¶

The third argument is basically this: Why y'all keep bringing up old shit? Slavery was over 150 years ago. It doesn't affect you now.

Rather, it’s not that BLAZING SADDLES could not be made today - you could make it, it would just land with a deafening thud. Because the observations are tired and the execution is gratuitous and crass - but importantly, it is gratuitous and crass in a way it was not in 1974.

On Extinction Rebellion and disabled rebels
The last time I did a thread about an XR action in my city being terrible for disabled people, I got a lot of abuse, but also several nice people telling me in good faith to try engaging with them. 

And, in the end, I did want to try. Because I do care about the climate and I did want to see if the organisation was truly 100% made up of people who hate disabled people. 

So I joined the XR Disabled Rebels Facebook group. It has been a really interesting experience.

Autism in the workplace — a thread of 30
Not all autistic people will be able to work. The comorbities of the condition (depression, anxiety, learning difficulties) can make it impossible to have a career, especially in a world not set up for autism. But many autistic people do work.

Some can be very successful indeed. Others may carve out a niche. More still will work away, often in considerable discomfort, trying to manage their job. Autism can make any kind of employment difficult — and here are some reasons why.

So, one thing transphobes like to do is post photos of trans women who *gasp* want to compete in school sports and go “But it’s not faiiiiiiir”

So let me tell you about this picture.

This is CeCe Telfer. She goes to Franklin Pierce University, and she runs track.

Right-wing websites wrote all sorts of articles throwing an absolute fit about her competing. Again this is NCAA Division II.
¶¶
So anyway, they post this photo. Oh no! She’s... taller than. The two women to her sides! *gasp*

It’s obviously so unfair that she competed against them and took their rightful place on the podium!

Except...

They both crushed her. Not even close.
¶¶
I honestly don’t GAF whether the existence of trans people makes you uncomfortable, and I certainly don’t GAF what your ignorant thoughts are on sports.

So, before you reply to this with “But still, I don’t think this is fair!” just know that I think your opinion is worthless.

So anyway, we never, ever hear stories about average trans athletes. Or rather, when we DO hear stories about average trans athletes, they’re framed as though they’re actually unstoppable LeBron James types.
¶¶
This creates what’s known as an availability heuristic.

We overestimate how common something is if it stands out. We apply more importance to it in our minds.
¶¶
When you point out that there aren’t currently any actual dominant trans athletes in pro/Olympic sports, people tend to immediately jump to “YET. BUT WE NEED TO PUT A STOP TO THIS BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL TRANSITION JUST TO WIN!”

Except... that argument has NEVER held up.

But here's the thing. Underlying this whole effort was the planning assumption, borne out by considerable technical and legal discussions, that 99% of these scenarios were protest, not violence.

Nearly all of the time an egg is an egg, and a milkshake is a milkshake. We, in the USSS, on President Bush, in the post 9/11 era didn't consider that stuff to be "political violence" in the absence of evidence of intent to cause actual harm.

We had eggs thrown. We had powder thrown. We had drinks thrown. I had a frappucino thrown at us in a motorcade. Mostly, this stuff never made the press George Bush had a valet with a spare suit and a good attitude.

A thread on how to understand/translate Japan's brand new imperial era name "Reiwa" (令和)
A thread on how to understand/translate Japan's brand new imperial era name "Reiwa" (令和).

To ordinary Japanese people at first glance (including many of my friends yesterday), the character 令 means "to order" or "to command" and 和 means "peace," "harmony," or "Japan" 1/

This leads to vaguely unsettling lay translations such as "commanding Japan," or "commanding harmony."

和 was also the second character of the disastrous "Shōwa" (昭和) era of Emperor Hirohito, which included militarism, World War II, atomic bombings, and defeat. 2/

Since the character "rei" was supposedly taken from the first character in the archaic term "reigetsu" (令月) meaning a splendid/felicitous/auspicious month, numerous experts have emerged to say an "accurate" translation of Reiwa would be something like "Splendid Peace." 5/

The greatest British con was to make the population believe that adults, coming to the UK to work, often with education paid for in their countries of origin, would be a burden on public services (e.g., NHS) and on the benefits system. Quite surreal so many people believe(d) this
I forgot who made this analogy: imagine a store got more people coming in, who on average, bought more than the usual customers. Will the store owners complain: our store's suffering from the footfall of all the new customers! We need to hire new cashiers! Such a burden!
Well, that's similar to UK citizens complaining EU-27 citizens who come and work here occasionally use the NHS and their kids using schools. You just build new schools and hospitals with their increased tax revenue.

I still find it amazing that the alt-right thinks Star Trek Discovery is all SJW n shit, but TNG had an episode about a transgender woman falling in love with Riker and then being lobotomized for it.

That while not the first interracial kiss on TV, the producers at TOS insisted on the kiss between Uhura and Kirk against strenuous objections, with Shatner going so far as to ruin all alternate takes so that they were forced to use the interracial kiss

At a time when an interracial kiss in Alabama could lead to a lynching. They put a disabled man in charge of the enterprise's engines. They made Data an analog for a number of minorities, even having a court case to determine that he counted as equal, and could not be enslaved
¶¶
The ambiguous relationship between Troi and Riker is at times more obviously some kind of durable friends with benefits polyamorous affiliation based on respect and love, but not exclusivity, such that when Riker wants to become committed with someone, he informs Troi first

They repeatedly state that most alt-right held positions were bad ideas from the past that humanity shed in order to become a socialist utopia, with no money, no homelessness, no joblessness, and in Troi's words, no hopelessness.

And yet when Star Trek Discovery has a character who is a little chubby, or puts a black woman on the bridge, they act like this is a recent development

One thing i read someone say was that star trek now is closed minded. it does not treat right wing ideas as equal alternatives, but instead, is now exclusively pushing SJW views. The original series wasn't 'open minded' about racism. It was 100% dead set against it.

There was no "open mindedness" about star trek in the sense that it viewed hate as simply one valid alternative. It was open minded about the variety of humans which had worth, and the variety of lifestyles which were equally valid. it excluded only the views that claimed that...

equality was invalid. An open society can only remain an open society by closing its doors to people who want to end the open society. This is the argument Star Trek made in the 60s. But for some reason, a chubby girl with acne on a star ship is ... INTOLERABLE

They're all very, very wet. Plants that are edible for humans grow readily.
They also had intense hierarchies where elites could just tell the lower classes they weren't allowed to eat meat- whether via religious teachings, custom, or just straight-up economic exploitation to where animal protein was unattainable. But that's a whole different discussion.

Whenever abortion comes up, I have a question I've been asking for ten years now of the "Life begins at Conception" crowd. In ten years, no one has EVER answered it honestly.
Whenever abortion comes up, I have a question I've been asking for ten years now of the "Life begins at Conception" crowd. In ten years, no one has EVER answered it honestly.

It's a simple scenario with two outcomes. No one ever wants to pick one, because the correct answer destroys their argument. And there IS a correct answer, which is why the pro-life crowd hates the question.

Here it is. You're in a fertility clinic. Why isn't important. The fire alarm goes off. You run for the exit. As you run down this hallway, you hear a child screaming from behind a door. You throw open the door and find a five-year-old child crying for help.

They're in one corner of the room. In the other corner, you spot a frozen container labeled "1000 Viable Human Embryos." The smoke is rising. You start to choke. You know you can grab one or the other, but not both before you succumb to smoke inhalation and die, saving no one.

o you A) save the child, or B) save the thousand embryos? There is no "C." "C" means you all die.

In a decade of arguing with anti-abortion people about the definition of human life, I have never gotten a single straight A or B answer to this question. And I never will.

They will never answer honestly, because we all instinctively understand the right answer is "A." A human child is worth more than a thousand embryos. Or ten thousand. Or a million. Because they are not the same, not morally, not ethically, not biologically.

This question absolutely evicerates their arguments, and their refusal to answer confirms that they know it to be true.

No one, anywhere, actually believes an embryo is equivalent to a child. That person does not exist. They are lying to you.

They are lying to you to try and evoke an emotional response, a paternal response, using false-equivalency.

No one believes life begins at conception. No one believes embryos are babies, or children. Those who claim to are trying to manipulate you so they can control women.

Don't let them. Use this question to call them out. Reveal them for what they are. Demand they answer your question, and when they don't, slap that big ol' Scarlet P of the Patriarchy on them. The end.

1. I'm so bitterly disappointed that uniform, in 2017, is still gendered. By which I mean almost all schools have 'boys' and 'girls' uniform

We’re too fixated on class. What matters is our ability to understand others
Our class shapes us no less than our colour or our gender. If you are cultivated in a hot-house, born into money, sheltered by it, how do you understand what it is like to fear homelessness because you can’t meet your rent? But if you grow wild, exposed to the elements, you quickly learn how poverty tends to rot your dignity, stunt you and leave you morally compromised. Live that experience and it shapes you always.

So when Katie Hopkins accused me on Twitter of being out-of-touch with the majority of people thanks to me having an Eton-educated father called Benedictus, it seemed right to answer.

I was born in 1971 to an impressionable young woman studying sociology at North London Poly, the first member of her family to go to university. She was introduced to David Benedictus – then famous as the writer who had blown the lid on Eton with The Fourth of June – by a mutual friend. They slept together, and the rest is history.

I have the dignified letters she wrote to him. “I do not expect you to marry me”, she says in them, “but you need to know I am pregnant”. They sit on my shelf next to carbon copy responses from his lawyers. “Our client denies paternity”, they say, “but will make a nuisance payment of £5 a week until she marries”.

How Germany responds to “blood and soil” politics
Commentators and politicians guard this boundary carefully, for example by eschewing the register and language of the far right. They tend not to brand critics and opponents “traitors”, “saboteurs” or the like. Migrants are rarely denominated in “swarms” or “floods”. The Bild Zeitung, a right-wing tabloid and Germany's most-read newspaper, has criticised elements of the government's handling of the refugee crisis. But it proudly stands up for the principle of welcoming foreigners in need; in 2015 its then editor-in-chief even pointedly took in refugees to his home. The result is a decidedly sober and unemotional style of public debate less prone than that of other countries to grandstanding or furious invective. The Berlin terrorist attack in December was reported factually and without panic; frothing reactions in the Anglo-Saxon press (and on Mr Trump's Twitter feed) contrasting with the stoical mood here.

Phil McDuff on socially acceptable, covert, white supremacy
So I actually want to talk a bit about this image.

The "acceptable" line is important to sustain all the stuff below it. It's what enables all that other stuff.

By carefully categorising and censuring overt white supremacy, regular people are given a way to take part in/ignore the rest guilt free.

White people know if you don't do the stuff above the line you're able to claim the "not a racist" badge.

Black people have had a presence in our history for centuries. Get over it
What we’re seeing is a backlash against any attempt, whether from the world of scholarship or popular culture, to paint non-white people back into the British past. Those of us who write about this history have long been familiar with this. In the 1990s, an assistant in a London bookshop informed the African American historian Gretchen Gerzina that there “were no black people in England before 1945”. Gerzina rather effectively disproved that assertion by going on to write the classic book on black people in Georgian London, Black London.

The deeper, more fundamental question is why? Why are some people so affronted by the very idea that the black presence in Britain stretches back so many centuries? Why, even when historical evidence is presented and the opinions of experts given, are they determined to dismiss the facts and, as we have seen in this case, seek to trash the reputation of respected scholars? The refusal to accept that the black presence in Britain has a long and deep history is not just a symptom of racism, it is a form of racism. It is part of a rearguard and increasingly unsustainable defence of a fantasy monochrome version of British history.

Paul Engelhard on representation of diversity in historical fiction
1. Okay, let me tell you why PoC representation in fantasy narratives is so incredibly important. Y'all saw PJW's idiocy about Romans, right?

2. Because somehow, these alt-right know-nothing mouth-breathers have this ridiculous image of Europe in their heads. Guess why.

3. Because I can promise you none of the smelly incels have ever read an actual fucking history book. All they consume is fiction & YouTube.

4. So ALL of their notions about European history are based on 300, Gladiator, LotR, and Game of Thrones. Which are lily fucking white, natch.

A disturbing plan for control…
Essentially it looks like a clampdown on the social media – and, to all intents and purposes, the establishment of a full-scale internet censorship system (see the ‘fake news’ point above). Where the Tories are refusing to implement statutory regulation for the press (the abandonment of part 2 of Leveson is mentioned specifically in the manifesto, along with the repeal of Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013, which was one of the few bits of Leveson part 1 that was implemented) they look very much as though they want to impose it upon the online media. The Daily Mail will have more freedom than blogging platforms, Facebook and Twitter – and you can draw your own conclusions from that.

When this is all combined with the Investigatory Powers Act, it looks very much like a solid clampdown on internet freedom. Surveillance has been enabled – this will strengthen the second part of the authoritarian pincer movement, the censorship side. Privacy has been wounded, now it’s the turn of freedom of expression to be attacked.

An open letter on the subject of Tim Farron's "homophobia" from the acting chair of LGBT+ Lib Dems
Let me get this right out in the beginning: I don't give a fig what Tim Farron's religious beliefs are. You know why? Because I am a Liberal. He could believe the sky is made from Puff the Magic Dragon's bumfluff, and I wouldn't care one jot, whit or iota. What I do care about, and care deeply about, is

● How Tim Farron votes in parliament
● How he treats people - LGBT+ people in particular - in everyday life

So lets do a little list of things which illustrate how Tim Farron views LGBT people

Everything you ever wanted to know about unfurling but were afraid to ask ~or~ How to make your site previews look amazing in Slack
Those handy little previews you see when you paste a link into a Slack message are what we refer to as unfurling internally at Slack (and also in Slack’s API documentation). While it may sound like a made up bit of tech jargon, it’s an actual word that means “to spread out from a rolled or folded state” which is what Slack attempts whenever it encounters a link.
¶¶
When you paste a URL into a Slack message and press return, Slack’s servers fetch the URL, cache it, and then start going through the headers of the page. Slack reads them in this order:

● oEmbed server
● Twitter card tags/Facebook Open Graph tags
● HTML meta tags

Priority is given to things higher in the list, so if you run an oEmbed server that gives out generic information, but offer up rich descriptions for Twitter and Facebook, Slack will stick to the oEmbed server information and ignore the rest. For Twitter cards and Facebook Open Graph tags, whichever is first in the page’s HTML will be used. If Slack finds nothing meeting the first two criteria, it will look for a meta tag with the description attribute and show that. If nothing meeting the above criteria can be found, no unfurl will be shown.

Facebook tackles surveillance concerns
"Today we are adding language to our Facebook and Instagram platform policies to more clearly explain that developers cannot 'use data obtained from us to provide tools that are used for surveillance'," Sherman wrote.

He added that Facebook's aim is to make its policy explicit and that "over the past several months we have taken enforcement action against developers who created and marketed tools meant for surveillance, in violation of our existing policies".

It comes a few months after the American Civil Liberties Union of California (ACLU) revealed that Geofeedia, a developer of social media monitoring software, had used data from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to help police monitor protests in the US.

A thread on why poor people were failed by Obamacare and don't reliably vote Democrat
RT @haircut_hippie

OK. a lot of Dems seem confused why more poor ppl don't vote D. i'll try to explain

setting: 2014, doc clinic in the middle of nowhere, TX

my first rotation as a med student. Obamacare had kicked in. but I kept seeing ppl coming in far too late, refusing followup care, etc. why?

they had insurance! Obamacare meant that they'd be spared from truly financially disastrous illnesses like cancer. so what was the deal.

talk to guy. fam history of esophageal cancer. guy has severe acid reflux. recommend endoscopy. he refuses. why?

see his deductible: $5000!

I’m a Coastal Elite From the Midwest: The Real Bubble is Rural America
I’m from the rural Midwest. I now live in Washington, D.C. All of this talk about coastal elites needing to understand more of America has it backward.

My home county in Ohio is 97 percent white. It, like a lot of other very unrepresentative counties, went heavily for Donald Trump.

My high school had about 950 students. Two were Asian. One was Hispanic. Zero were Muslim. All the teachers were white.

My high school had more convicted sexual predator teachers than minority teachers. That’s a rural American story.

In many of these areas, the only Muslims you see are in movies like “American Sniper.” (I knew zero Muslims before going to college in another state.) You never see gay couples or even interracial ones. Much of rural and exurban American is a time capsule to America’s past.

And on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016, they dug it up.
