the inherent flaw of just monetizing everything is that only things that can return or generate wealth will be incentivized and improved on.

Getting the sense that the scifi reading/writing community is especially vicious and petty, because they see themselves as Building The Future or something

Combine this with the subset of queer people who are competing to show the entire world how unproblematic they are, and do this by fueling aversion-fads against complex media that can in any way be framed as problematic, and you've got a nasty situation

This is an emergency. South Dakota is pushing to pass a law that would make affirming trans youth a crime. It is extreme and dangerous.

> Every time we attack this system but don't destroy it, it changes, and in turn changes us and the terrain of the next fight. Gains are turned against us, and we are stuck back in the same situation--at work. The bosses try to keep us looking for individual solutions, or solutions within an individual workplace or an individual trade. The only way we can free ourselves is to broaden and deepen our fight. We involve workers from other workplaces, other industries, and other regions. We attack more and more fundamental things. The desire to destroy restaurants becomes the desire to destroy the conditions that create restaurants.
