I sure hope YOU live there and never leave. And, if you think I am implying that the USA is all sunshine, freedom, and a country to emulate, you are incorrect. The USA also has a lot of room for improvement. The entire world will soon become as unfree as China, so even if you don’t live there now, you’ll have time to reflect on your thoughtless statement.

Blaming the victim? wow. Chinese people are really suffering right now - more so from the covid-19 lock downs, but also because of the real estate fraud.

perhaps it is just the Chinese people I know who move here. Rumor has it that a Chinese man would pay an American woman $40,000 to marry her so that he can get citizenship.

We need ti begin thinking of ways for technology to help us avoid this - before it happens. I disagree with crypto-currency being a long-time answer, because soon enough, it will be made illegal because cetnral banks won't allow competition against their CBDCs.

I used to have Chinese acquaintance. Many people in China are miserable and for various reasons. The main reason is a lack of freedom. That is partly a cultural hangover from feudal days. I know a Chinese woman (talked to her today) who is so happy, so grateful to live in the USA. The USA has a lot of problems and so does every country and every culture.
But, how the Chinese authorities (500 years ago, 50 or 100 years ago, or even today) treat their own people is so horrible. Communism was unable to fix this negative cultural attitude that the Chinese people have for life in general - life of animals, life of newborn girls, life of any human. I doubt capitalism is the answer and i know religion isn’t, ether. My point is that you need to stop thinking technology = happiness or contentment. It does not . Without contentment, why are we alive? The state exist for the people - not the other way around.
Maybe China needs to teach and adopt Yangism (Master Yang Chou) and reintroduce the rest of Taoism, too - not the religious bullcrap, but the philosophical Taoism. Let go of your idea of burdening people. Let each person be free, be themselves. A person has the mental capacity then to CREATE. Mankind has excelled by CREATING - which is a type of inventing, too. China, America, any country can shove their technology up their arses. Every damned creature born wants freedom. Your technology is a ball-and-chain. You are proud of this ???

Looking for a job where I can use Linux - warehouse preferred.
I've a bit of retail, car sales, and warehouse experience and am looking for a job where I can use Linux and have an excuse to improve my skills in Linux and tech. I use Debian. I love efficiency, organization, and making systems faster, easier for employees and customers. I am open to any tips you all can give me. I have no certifications and am not sure that I am willing to get one at this point. If I had a job I loved and they loved me back, I might be willing to get a certification in order to advance. I am hoping the little bit of Linux and tech that I know will be what gets me a job where I live now.

question everything. and try hard not to discourage others from doing so. shaming people for asking questions is largely why humanity is in the mess they are in. Everyone is afraid to stick out like a sore thumb. I have been wrong before and will be wrong again. I will always ask questions and look deeper.

the truth we should all agree is the truth

that isn’t how human beings work. where have YOU been? China - where you can be thrown in prison for not having the same “truth” as another person? You do know that not all scientists even agree on “truth”, right? I think it was Feinman who showed that Einstein was wrong once upon a time.

Those 14 videos would have to be from 14 different sources, but I guess that is what you meant. Even that only leads to an event being more probably, but doesn’t guarantee its true.

These BigTech conglomerates are members of the WEF, promoting FIDO (logging into internet using a digital ID, and are part of the new World Order, a fascist technocratic take-over that will make us 90+% into serfs.

Smart move. Upload to Odysee, Rumble, or removedute, please.

its not for or with containers, but antiX base version is light and fast and runs off of RAM. Its easy to get up and running on a flash drive or VM, but I couldn’t get it to install on a HDD for some reason. Is without systemd.

Slack is supposed to be a bit like a netinstall of Debian with Fluxbox and has less stuff on it than antiX base, and the speed should be the same - and runs off of RAM. Nothing to do with containers, but I think you could put a container in it.

I’ve heard people say you really can’t run a VM in antiX, so I’d guess a container would be hard as well.

fascism. use correct terminology. when gov’t works in a partnership with conglomerates, that is called fascism. poop by any other name would stink as badly.

and if they did, how will they use it against us? Possible, but so difficult than it is unlikely.

the value of older computers may increase. lightweight OSs for an older PC: antiX base runs really well and I think a netinstall of Debian that is customized would, too. We the people need to stop doing business with those who mistreat us. To heck with the latest and greatest - give me freedom instead.

Anyone know if a self-hosted VPN is 100% secure?

I use Firefox and I just do a Ctrl+mouseScrollUp or ctrl+= and it remembers the zoom for that website.

Can’t, but it was a big image of a creature or mascot with a big Ukrinian flag. Maybe someone here can add to what I saw.

The day i am no longer open to hearing the other side of the story is the day I am no longer myself, but instead am an extension of someone else (media, the group, muh team, a nationalist agenda, yesterday/the past, etc). Not wanting to understand the other side (or all sides if there is time for that) is a sign of a weak character and probably of weak intelligence, as well. Understanding is not the same as agreeing or condoning.

When Freedom Convoy tried to set up groups on Telegram, they kept getting infiltrated to the point where it was hard to know what was truth or even who official admins were.

For those of you here standing up for freedom of the press, freedom of information, high five and I wish you were my close neighbors. Thank you for respecting me enough to trust me to sort things out for myself.

verified by whom? Our own parents lie to us sometimes, and even spouses do, so what makes you think media or gov’t won’t?

Yandex is not only a WEF member, but they also have an agreement with Uandex to allow Yndex browser to use Microsoft Suite - so i distrust it. Seeing that Microsoft has a contract with Ukraine gov’t, I suspect if Yandex isn’t filtering results yet, they will soon. The Hated One replied to me that Yandex (email or browser, idk) is worse than Google because Russian laws differ from those in the US.

Any one tried the site Reclaim the Net?
There's a $60 lifetime membership fee, so I am reluctant to try it. Was hoping for reviews and to know more about their content - besides what the cover page shows. It looks like what i could find elsewhere.

I saw the US military on a mainstream large TV channel show these and how they were used to disperse crowds without needing bullets.

Best markdown packages for Atom run on Linux?
I guess most of Atom's packages are made for Windows, because most won't work correctly for me and I've tried MANY. I'd really love to be able to use internal links (opens another one of my own markdown files) that work like wikilinks that I created on other markdown editors - that work in ghostwriter, MarkText, and Typora. I have the outline package and that works fine, but any other suggestions for markdown packages or for writers would be appreciated. - if you KNOW they work well on Linux. A few great themes for markdown would also be helpful.
