This really is a superb internal critique of how the future of communist struggle cannot be founded upon the analysis of past circumstances which no longer obtain.

Dang it I'm going to have to make a hack of Comrades that takes into account this critique, aren't I?

"Revolutionaries get lost in history, defining themselves by reference to a context of struggle that has no present-day correlate. They draw lines in sand which is no longer there."

I'm lichen it.

in the mood to be a strange, watchful woman who takes up residence at the edge of the village, just where it borders the woods, whose softly scented chimney smoke and flickering blue candle-flames garner her a reputation among the children as a witch; but who, quietly, cures the dream-sickness that hangs over the nearby pool, persuades the fey beings in the copse to return the memories they stole, and who slowly, slowly, gains enough trust to be considered not just a witch, but /their/ witch.

The Coco de Mer (Lodoicea maldivica) is a rare palm tree from the Seychelles, which grows the world's largest wild fruit, containing the world's largest seed.

The fruit may be 40-50cm in diameter and can weigh up to 30kg. They take 6 or 7 years to grow and ripen, and the seed takes 2 years to germinate.

As you might expect, the flowers that produce those fruit are huge – the largest of any palm tree. When it germinates, the cotyledons which sprout from these seeds can be up to 4m in length!

Twitter can never work as a public forum in a sustainable way. Mastodon, because of the public local timeline, could, but in practice ends up being too fragmented. Cross talk between instances is difficult.

What these sites are good for is smaller working groups, public-facing design notebooks, outreach to existing connections within the community, and personal musings.
