oh, it's long dead. Yami disappeared and the board (which was a coding mess) had no reason to be anymore. you can just reach for SGC or whoever else is left on Discord.

Yeah. From what I had heard, it had been in decline for a while, before Yami left. SGC is fairly active in Discord, though I haven't seen much out of him in the wild recently.

There are plenty of people in the Discord right now, it's grown quite a bit.

Just shy of 600 members. Not as many people as dshack had, but it's definitely something.

it's a real shame to see post layouts end up like this.

even if they pretend to stand with the protesters. most of the time they're only doing it for the show (and revert to normal behavior shortly after). or trying to coopt the movement.

What do you achieve by "fuck the cops?" Some cops are bad eggs, but certainly not all of them. I like to think of where we'd be in an anarchic society with no police.

And really, why riot? The cops that started it were horrible, sure. That doesn't mean that you should wreck people's lives and businesses, especially when they had nothing to do with it. Rioting is not the answer.

I don't have the answers there, but peaceful protesters are still getting roughed up by police, so I doubt strict nonviolence is the answer. also, I don't think Chauvin would have been arrested without all this mess.

also, ACAB. they might not all be overtly racist, but those who stand aside while their colleagues are doing racist shit are complicit.

police itself does not serve to protect people. it serves to protect the existing order and enforce the existing laws. which means allowing Bezos & co. to get absurdly rich while the poorest are starving in the streets. this is not a world I want to live in, and police is here to defend that world, therefore police is an enemy.

If that's the problem you have, I don't think the police are the people to be fighting. They're just doing their jobs. Maybe you want the laws to be changed? Attacking the police isn't going to do that.

Like a person with a gun. If the person kills someone using the gun, who do you blame? The person or the gun? I imagine the person. The gun was just the tool used to get the job done. Except the person is the government, and the gun is the police.

they're just doing their jobs, just like SS officers were. not the same thing yet, but the same sorta mindset.

also, in your logic, the problem is the government (indeed, it's part of the problem).

now, say you ask your govt to change laws in your favor. higher wage, more rights for minorities, or whatever.

current trend is that governments follow their neoliberal agenda without listening to feedback from their people. regular mobilization is going to be ignored, or crushed by force if it makes too much noise. that's been a common theme for the last 10 years.

govt relies on its police, and indulges into whatever police asks for, because govt knows that without its police, it's done.

police is not the enemy per se. it's the wall, and you have to take it down.

It's also a problem when you have an incompetent governor and mayor.

I believe the problems are systemic. our systems are supposed to be democratic and all, and yet these same systems lead to having a fucking clown in power and turning pretty dictator-y.

it's also a thing of that, these police know the system. it's their job to know it and enforce it. if someone can look at the system currently in place and be like "yeah, i want to be the person who enforces that" then they are just as bad as the people who put those systems there in the first place. they are rotten.

they believe they're bravely defending the country from the lawless thugs who want chaos, or something like that.

I mean, instead of stopping at the illegal things we see happen, robomoderating them and dishing out prison sentences, maybe we should ask ourselves why these things are happening, why these people are going through the risk. instead of deciding that 'they are intrinsically bad'. most of them are like you and me, they just want to live.

it's like the whole deal around prisons. they keep going on about how prisons are overcrowded. solution? build more prisons. they have been doing that for years and yet prisons are still overcrowded. so maybe it's not the right solution? maybe we should stop and question a system that fills prisons with people who stole a burger to avoid starving.

but the Right would rather have you believe that all these prisons are a requirement, because somehow 'lawlessness is increasing', as if it was some kind of trend, as if certain categories of people were more prone to being violent and reckless. well duh, of course they're gonna be reckless if that's the only way they can survive. there's a lot to say about the whole thing of having to work a job to deserve legal survival.

at this point I'm going to veer into a rant about capitalism, because, as you see, all these issues are interconnected. so, yeah.

oh also: 'equality of chances' is a bullshit neolib-propaganda concept.
