    It never is. It’s the same everywhere too.

    I once read on the Internet if you’re dependant on income you are poor. I think that is a perfect definition, because it removes the rivalry between all, well, slaves.

    By money count I am possibly rich in direct comparison to you. Yet here I am, requiring income for my family and me to survive alone, additionally being bound by long term costs.

    So it’s basically the same for all of us (albeit with different numbers and different conditions) except for a handful who can do what they want.

    If you’re interested in details in my case hit me up by pm.

    Capitalism is clearly one of the central puzzle pieces of humanity’s downfall.

    If I need to spell it out, growth. Growth is a requirement. And with it everything else has to scale, too.

    And there’s always another ‘solution’ to be sold. Well, let’s get on it then, trying to develop a product to sell solving this crisis.

    The movie ‘don’t look up’ explains this very well, too.

    Then, regarding the far right. Companies thrive on hate. It sells very very well.

    Yes, you need to run the service somewhere. But anyone can do so (Foss).

    With discord my experience is limited but I currently understand it’s a service model so you’re dependant on a company, which can pull the same sh*t teamspeak did at any time.

    Not needing any technical knowledge just means someone else is running it, possibly being able to lock you in. And in the case of discord, you already are locked in and have to accept whatever they think up.

    At some point, monetization will take over.
