Why not something like market socialism?

areyouevenreal ,

Except there is exactly that: socialism is where the working class owns the means of production.

Anyone who suggests otherwise is normally a right wing or centrist nutjob. People who debate if the USSR are debating how well it meets that criteria, not what the criteria actually is.

Also there are loads of people who are socialists but not MLs. Not all communists are MLs or Maoists either. Anarchist communists, libertarian marxists are communists that don’t fit into that group. Anarchists in general are socialists that don’t agree with MLs or Maoists or authoritarian regimes like China or the USSR.

Stop going around spouting centrist nonsense and actually read socialist theories if you want to legitimately criticise it. You can’t criticise such a broad range of systems without first understanding what they are and what they have in common.

areyouevenreal ,

So basically anyone left of a social democrat you don’t support? As far as I am concerned social democrats aren’t real socialists but support hybrid economy.

Out of curiosity do you have any problem with anarchist communism, market socialism, or any other true socialist ideology that is pro civil liberties?

Also MLs do want a democracy, it’s called democratic socialism (which are different from social democrats, yes it’s confusing). As far as they are concerned the democracy we live in now isn’t real, and I tend to agree with them on this as do many other leftist groups. Just to be clear I haven’t been an ML in a while.

areyouevenreal ,

How can a society without a state - anarchism - possibly be authoritarian? There are no police or military to enforce any authoritarian policies is many forms of anarchism. What you are saying doesn’t make sense.

I actually agree with you that MLs can be authoritarian. That’s part of why I left those ideologies behind. What I don’t agree with is painting all socialist ideologies with the same brush. Some are based on direct democracy which is always going to be more democratic than representative democracy, weather you think that’s a good thing or not.

I also don’t believe we live in a true democracy as it’s controlled through political and economic corruption including lobbying, as well as the two-party system created through FPTP voting systems. Not to mention manufactured consent. So to me those checks and balances aren’t that effective, especially compared to real direct democracy.

Edit: also MLs believe in checks and balances last I checked. The USSR was full of bureaucracy for this very reason.

areyouevenreal ,

I don’t think it’s a perfect system, however there are easy ways to prevent this problem. You simply make either the customers or the government one of the parties holding shares of the companies. That way the customers also get to vote on decisions, or the government on behalf of the whole society.

areyouevenreal ,

Fully socialize? Socialist market economy is a true socialist system already. You can’t make it more socialist. Your confusing communism with socialism.

My experience using Fedora Atomic (Budgie) for a month or two. (lemmy.dbzer0.com)

I would just like to preface this. This is the first blog post I’ve ever written, so please please please give me feedback if you can. I also didn’t intend on it being here on Lemmy, but Hugo is quite a complex tool that’ll take some time for me to understand. Webdev is not my cup of tea....

Arch Linux is known for its instability and it’s highly dependent on what you are doing. Linux stability in general is very dependent on what you are doing. I’ve even had issues on debian using their official Nvidia drivers.

areyouevenreal ,

You can also just tell NixOS to use GRUB. It’s fairly easy.

areyouevenreal ,

That’s a fucking lie. I’ve literally had debian fail to update because of Nvidia drivers, the ones from their official repos too.

areyouevenreal ,

What does that have to do with using GRUB? It’s a setting in your configuration.nix or hardware.nix if your installing manually. Not talking about the live ISO or whatever.

areyouevenreal ,

It’s still a modular, repairable phone. That’s objectively different to a regular phone. Not to mention the broad support for ROMs.

I still wouldn’t buy one because of the cost, reduced performance, reduced battery life, and worse screen than other phones. It’s not worth it even if it’s upgradable as it can’t be upgraded enough to stay relevant forever anyway unlike a framework where you can plop in a new motherboard.

areyouevenreal ,

I mean marx also talks about the Jews and the Christians. I thought the position was that religion helps reinforce class society.

areyouevenreal ,

I was told marx was an antisemite. That’s what people say about leftists in general it seems.

areyouevenreal ,

Source?

areyouevenreal ,

Except many like mine don’t have that option. The best they have is “optimized” charging that tries to only hit full when you go to unplug it.

areyouevenreal OP ,

Yep, installed my first Linus Distro in primary school at about 11 yo. Now I am 23.

In all seriousness while I think FreeBSD and GhostBSD are very cool, and have some interesting server applications they do have some annoying limitations. It’s not really their fault either, it sucks being the 4th most common platform/kernel/whatever. The FreeBSD people seem less uptight about working with proprietary software as it’s not the same kind of Open Source Linux is because it’s not copyleft. So you can use their code wherever even in closed source products. They include things like Nvidia drivers straight in their repos.

As for what makes them different/interesting: Linux is very capable but also kind of over engineered, confusing, and somewhat jank. BSDs are generally more simple. You would think this makes them less capable but aside from software support they often have more useful features. BSDs had Jails before Containers where supported properly on Linux.

BSD is almost what Linux is to Windows: faster, more stable, less annoying, and with a fraction of the users, hardware and software support. It’s also a bit more complex to do certain things out of the box - though GhostBSD does give you a GUI and decent installer.

Also BTRFS on Linux feels like this:

Child: “Can we have ZFS?”

Mother: “We have ZFS at home.”

ZFS at home: BTRFS

Like it’s good that it exists, a lot better than other OSes had for a while, but it just doesn’t compare to the stability and performance of the original. There are some areas where it’s a bit more flexible and that can be useful, but generally it’s just not as good. Pretty much Linux, then Apple, then Microsoft all tried copying ZFS, only worse. Heck it actually came from Sun Microsystems, then got Open Sourced allowing the FreeBSD people among others to port it to their system. Linux now has BCacheFS which might be even better but it’s too early to tell.

Sorry for the long response. Thought I would explain some stuff while I am here.

areyouevenreal OP ,

Glad you enjoyed. I would give one of the BSDs a go. NomadBSD is a good option to try out as it’s designed as a persistent live system that runs from a USB drive. Let me know if you have any questions, though I am far from an expert on this yet.

areyouevenreal OP ,

I tried that method. It’s seriously borked if you ever want transcoding to work. Jellyfin has a customized version of ffmpeg they used that just dosen’t exist on FreeBSD to the best of my knowledge. You can maybe make it work with the FreeBSD version but it would be an ugly hack.

areyouevenreal ,

Likely they are referring to birds being in a monophyletic clade alongside dinos, but by that logic, humans are monkeys.

I mean we pretty much are. Aside from going hairless and standing upright how much different are we really?

Computers are further removed from rocks than a dinosaur is from a mamal.

areyouevenreal ,

Are you having some kind of aneurysm? We aren’t talking about raw materials, we are talking about evolution and how similar things are. Humans are functionally still animals. Computers are not functionally just rocks.

areyouevenreal ,

I mean they aren’t instant and have to be within a fairly short distance of the thing you want to sterilize in order to work because they are absorbed by the air. Something like a pool would be practically impossible as water also absorbs UV and a pool is too big to penetrate all the way through just from the sides or bottom. It only works for drinking water because you pass said water through a tube that must be fairly narrow.

Oh yeah and an X-ray could sterilize all the way through an object, not just the surface. Very useful for making things like microwave meals.

areyouevenreal ,

Okay this is kinda backwards. Alcohol is worse than nicotine. Nicotine withdrawal doesn’t cause seizures or death. Nicotine is less destructive to an addict than alcohol is, although it’s more addictive overall.

While cannabis and psychedelics should be legalized and can help many people they aren’t without risks. They can cause temporary psychosis and permanent sensory abnormalities/minor hallucinations. In some cases they can trigger diseases like schizophrenia. It’s all dependent on how your brain is wired and what happens when you are tripping/high.

There was actually an off-duty airline pilot that nearly caused a major accident when traveling in the cockpit jump seat after taking mushrooms a few days before hand. He jumped up atns tried to shut off the engines, and very nearly succeeded. There is a great mentor pilot video on it if you can find it. It’s a great example of what can go wrong with psychedelic drugs. That man ended up in jail btw.

areyouevenreal ,

100% get you. I just thought it needed pointing out how bad alcohol is. Like you could die of lung cancer from smoking at 60 or from alcohol poisoning at 30. It’s one of those things that’s killed people the first time doing it.

areyouevenreal ,

Someone did the math. It’s $315,000 not $150.000. So plenty to live on and still have some left for investment.

As for winning capitalism: capitalism is a travesty that’s killing both people and the planet. I would rather people stop talking about winning such a system - there are truly no victors. To be the victor in capitalism is to be a cell of a tumor that slowly kills its host; you only live until you finish killing the host or the host fights back. We should kill and consume those responsible for capitalism like macrophages consume cancer.

areyouevenreal ,

The issue here is capitalism will destroy the environment so you won’t have anywhere to go eventually, at least if you’re not a billionaire. This is what I mean about killing the host, the bourgeoisie are slowly killing society and the planet.

areyouevenreal ,

A dead one? Maybe you mean Bill Gates?

areyouevenreal ,

I wasn’t saying bill gates was dead. I was asking if the only good billionaire was a dead billionaire. I was then suggesting you might believe Bill Gates is the one good billionaire. They were separate possible answers I was trying to think of.

areyouevenreal ,

Do they promote crypto as a solution to world problems? If not how are they a crypto fash.?

areyouevenreal ,

Either way I suspect Linus himself is only a small component of the problem if it exists

It’s easy for employees to do stuff you don’t know about.

Of course he is still a capitalist and is as guilty as any other “well behaved” capitalist.

areyouevenreal ,

That’s a good point to be fair. I think they have an external team now thankfully.

areyouevenreal ,

Did she say who called her that or who she took her complaints to? Linus Media Group is a fairly large company these days. We also don’t know yet how much of what she said is actually true.

areyouevenreal ,

Do you have some sources?

areyouevenreal ,

Honestly don’t bother. Ublock is better at blocking ads. Pihole is for devices on your network that can’t use conventional ad blockers and is less effective.

areyouevenreal ,

Or you could just switch DHCP over to the Pi-hole. Most ISP routers support turning off DHCP even if you can’t change their DNS.

areyouevenreal OP ,

What’s a cie?

areyouevenreal OP ,

Why use a VPN instead of a proxy? I found configuring a proxy much easier. I hate to say it but that stack is too simple for my setup. It’s missing half the stuff I use. I have also been avoiding qbittorrent because of issues with it forgetting login details.

areyouevenreal OP ,

a) I am not using unraid

b) I was aware of using tailscale or a VPN. I don’t really want to do that as it requires running my whole connection through home Internet.

c) I also want to setup a reverse proxy even if I do only use it locally just so I am not dealing with ports and IPs. No bookmarks are not practical I have too many as it is.

d) At this point I am doing this the “right” way or at least the complex way because I can.

areyouevenreal ,

You think being a conservative is a pedo ideology? Are you serious? Wow.

areyouevenreal ,

Which country is this?

areyouevenreal ,

Definitely has roots in systems of oppression because conservatism by definition supports the current system which is oppressive. The latter part you are gonna have to prove.

(Constructively) What is your least favorite distro & why?

I’ve been distrohopping for a while now, and eventually I landed on Arch. Part of the reason I have stuck with it is I think I had a balanced introduction, since I was exposed to both praise and criticism. We often discuss our favorite distros, but I think it’s equally important to talk about the ones that didn’t quite hit...

areyouevenreal ,

What are your reasons? This is a fairly broad amount of things to hate.

areyouevenreal ,

You’re the one who asked if I needed your vote lmao. I don’t. You’re just annoyed you don’t have any leverage over me.

areyouevenreal ,

So are you a marxist or something else?
