Listening to Democrats lose their shit over the supreme court nominee reaffirms a critical point for me... we need to be understanding and commiserate about what a horrible situation it is

But more importantly we need to show why this has happened, and will continue to happen, so long as a critical mass of people are principally concerned with appealing to, and working within, the system that ensures these conditions.

All branches of US govt are working as designed. Time to design different

@slackz Of course, anything that undermines pluralism will lead pretty quickly to breakup.

@slackz We need to start by approving ranked choice voting. The ancient bipartisan structure needs to go.

@rick_777 yeah, i definitely support the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation). Two-party bullshit was entrenched with electoral college and country's founding. You can bet a bunch or colonialist, slaveholding mass-murderers didn't want parties actually representing the people coming in to take power

So excited with Maine's progress on that front at least:

OrgSpace

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.

Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.

Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
