“This is the European Parliament and I’m here to chew gum and speak truth to power… and I’m all outta gum!” ;)
@aral Good luck!
@aral Or as we say in Denmark: Knæk og bræk!
@aral Go you!! Someone's gotta talk the truth and demonstrate that alternatives exist!
@aral good luck, speak well and clearly, I hope they pay attention to your words, slides, and mostly your ideas
Tell em like it is!
@aral Again, I'm all with you and "fuck surveillance capitalism" (*pinpoints to a "State surveillance capitalism" slide*), but I suppose the Greens and Pirates have better knowledge of the EU Parliament than you do.
@aral (If you're interested in State surveillance capitalism, you should look at Orange and understand what State capitalism is: for example, if you look at the railway networks in post-colonized countries, I guess you could see that the railways would lead to natural resources being extracted for the colonizer's industrials.)
@aral (Orange being in love with the French information services, and being formerly called "France Telecom", a privatized public service.)
That's for the best, it's quite difficult to do both at the same time...
