What is fascinating about this moment are the populations and cultures unconsciously closing off their futures, such as US Republicans, climate deniers, and COVID minimisers.

To all Americans who accept the morbidity of their system and are ready to reboot to a Nordic-style social democracy:

Happy Interdependence Day

Your counterparts in Europe will see you on the other side. *That* will be the time for fireworks.

RT @jmkorhonen
Of all the ways to organize an industrial society that humans have tried so far, the Nordic social democracy is the least bad. Not perfect and in dire need of improvement, but still least bad.

Here's where Finland for instance shines: a thread.

@pandoraswax I agree. Any new legal framework that adequately addresses just ecological relations would be incompatible with the existing state-corporate apparatus

WTF?

Now @codexeditor has squeezed Bosch out of Lévy-Dhurmer.

Today it was unusually hot for June; the maximum 32.4°C was observed in Espoo Nuuksio.

Vihti Maasoja (31.4°C) and Jomala Jomalaby (29.3°C) in Åland broke their monthly heat records.

- early 20th art nouveau.

It's a superb simulation of a sublime synaesthesia.

Maybe that's what DALL-E & LLMs are here to extend our minds to do ..

Imagine being a country who's biggest problems right now is deciding when it's best to kill children - before birth, or in school?
