...except unfollow you if you so desire or not follow you at all you request so in your bio or some shit like that. seriously, DO NOT hesitate to ask me to unfollow if you feel uncomfortable being followed by a random guy online
cleaning the timeline
heads up if you use twitter at all
in typical jack dorsey fashion, the new tipping feature on twitter, which uses paypal, sends the tip recipient the full name and address of the person sending the tip
if you don't have a business account set up to obscure that info, you could very well dox yourself
and the thing is this is an exceptional crisis. nobody is even saying nationalise pharma forever (I am, but you know know,). all you have to do for 5 minutes is waver SOME IP rights on what is a crucial society saving level of shit we desperately need. and I cannot stress enough THIS WILL COME BACK TO THE CORE TOO, if you let a virus mutate in India or Brazil, then it will come back to America and Germany, especially in such an interconnected world. and all you have to do is just step in a tiny amount to do not even altruism but self interested long sighted policy planning
and then, the scum of the European Union, Britain, and American world order will piss and cry about 'Chinese soft power' and 'vaccine diplomacy' when China distributes their vaccine. YOU DUMB FUCKS ARE KILLING PEOPLE WITH HORDING AND INACTION, AND THEN LOSE YOUR MIND WHEN CHINA STEPS IN TO NOT LET PEOPLE DIE. like, ofc China will gain influence in being a benefactor of states, that's just what happens when one country helps another without exploitation. BUT NOTHING IS STOPPING THE EU OR US DOING THIS TOO, THEY COULD JUST GIVE OUT MORE VACCINES
all these fucking ghouls in the pharma industry who are shitting their pants over the idea that vaccines should have their patents waved are killing people not just now, but in the future.
of course non western states deserve the vaccine and it should not be horded at all, and they will die without that vaccination as India is showing us right now. but the thing is that, concentrating the vaccines that do exist into one area, giving a tiny pittance out to show how generous you are, while having a tiny amount produced, will mean more people die. the larger gaps you have in society for the virus to exist, the more that virus has the ability to mutate, and more specifically, to mutate in such a way that will lead to the vaccine becoming useless.
IP rights mean less places produce vaccines, less vaccines means more dead NOW and in the long term as the virus mutates leaving us open to MORE covid waves. and these inhuman black hearted scum who run these companies are screaming that this needs to happen so they make money. this is what people mean with capitalism being so short sighted it will kill itself.
The comics industry and the games industry shaking hands over being extremely awful, tedious, and exploitative despite seeming like fun places to work when you're a naive child.
