Thinking about how familial, inherited land-wealth is a thing that never went away throughout every transition away from feudalism, and how it remains still as the primary method by which the landed bougoise class stores their accumulated wealth

The repercussions of this are insane. Billions of people across the world use YouTube and Google. This unaccountable US mega-corporation (which works closely with the US gov't) is now boasting to the world that it can censor entire countries and languages

…BC Rail used to operate passenger rail from North Vancouver all the way to Prince George!?

What the heck. That's. ,,,,,, Sure, they were using slow, old DMUs, but that's still cool.

Hello Fediverse, and and especially PeerTube's admins.

After finding Neo-Nazi content on the instance I was using, I realized that far-right groups have created PeerTube instances or use unmoderated instances to share their videos.

"Can Italian speakers understand classical Latin!?"
