"20 years ago we were suing teenagers for millions of dollars because they were torrenting a single Metallica album and now billionaires are demanding the free right to every work in history, so that they can re-sell it. The law only ever serves capital."

in response to article in The Guardian: " ‘Impossible’ to create AI tools like ChatGPT without copyrighted material, OpenAI says"
Napster and Metallica, it was a crazy time. From time to time artists will have a bit of a whinge about file sharing and money, and to my ears they are saying "I hate my audience, I hate you, I was faking it with extreme cynicism when I wrote that song you loved. You fell for it but now I am coming clean and I don't want you to listen to my music any more, all I really want is your money." Madonna and Neil Tenant are among those who have made this disclosure. Go and party with Lars you fucks.

The Business Software Alliance (BSA), an organization of copyright ultracops who will basically kill your business if you even think of playing fast and loose with licensing, is essentially a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft.

OpenAI, an organization of quasi-religious techbro dipshits who say their business will be killed if licensing isn’t abolished so they don’t have to play fast and loose with it, is essentially a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft.

Luisa Neubauer said something that connected with me in her speech tonight at the protest against the german far-right AfD party:

(paraphrased)

No one else is coming to save us from fascism. We’re all there is, but we’re also all we need.

Regarding that... Surely those three could be recycled, so millions could afford to live.

The Problem with Trolley Car Problems

I started out saying this as a joke, but gradually, over time, I've come to realize it's actually accurate.

The true solution to almost all "trolley car" problems is to find who keeps tying people to the tracks.

In trolley car problems, the people tied to the tracks always represent some disadvantaged sector of society — poor people, homeless people, no healthcare, minorites, etc — or even just (pardon the expression) "regular" lower class people.

And the "problem" is always "do you let those people be run over in order to save a billionaire, or a corporation, or the banking industry, or some sector of the economy, etc.

And again ... why are those people tied to the tracks in the first place? What is wrong with our economy/society/legal system, that we have those people stuck in those disadvantaged positions?

So the next time you see a trolley car problem — even the comedy/shitpost/joke problems — ask yourself, "who are those people tied to the track, and how did they get there in the first place?

If you put meme-y little labels on the picture you could have recursive fun - perhaps the one person tied to the tracks is "clown using trolley car problem to promote false binary fallacy", and the multiple people "victims of bad decisions arising from believing false binaries."

It's probably already been done.
Use the system to fuck up the system?

Australian economic policy is pretty much just a bumper sticker with "what would John Howard do?" written on it.
