"We notice you're using an ad blocker," says the website popup window, refusing to let me read anything on the page.

I glance at my ad blocker button which shows the number 174 for the number of blocked ads and trackers.

"Wonder why I'd use one of those," I mumble to myself.

nurse: Have you ever had any sexual contact with a man?

Dracula: What is a man?!

nurse, sighing heavily: Sorry, sir. Have you ever had any sexual contact with a miserable little pile of secrets?

time to think about the fact that tech workers are also working class in that they do not own the means of production and are forced to work ridiculous hours under impossible deadlines but continue to ignore class struggle because they're profiting just enough to not have to reckon with the exploitation of themselves or others until the tech bubble bursts and they're fucked like the rest of us.

I know from experience that "no human being is capable of unconditional love" sounds like a dismal statement to other people. so let me back up. when people ask one another for love in a healthy way, and call it unconditional, they are asking for conditional love, but with reasonable conditions, and with trust.

"my love comes with the condition that you do not try to kill me, and the trust that you would never."

to me, unconditional love implies the Divine in a direct, qualitative way: I don't think a love that is genuinely without conditions is either a possible thing for a human being to hold, nor is it a reasonable or even good goal. when people's reasonable conditions are violated, and they try to have love without those conditions, that love is another way in which the person they love is hurting and wronging them.

only God, or *a* god of the right kind, *could* love unconditionally; no-one down here should try. love with reasonable conditions and with trust.

Republicans have it so easy. All they gotta do is post some shit like “dumbocrats” and they get 100’s of likes but we gotta toil for hours over like “Jared Kushner’s weed dealer reads the Wall Street journal” and fight over the scraps.
