Indigenous Photograph: a resource for visual storytelling – in pictures | Art and design | The Guardian

Natives Photograph began in 2018 as a database of indigenous visual storytellers from across north America, providing a resource for those wishing to hire more inclusively – since mainstream narratives historically have been largely in the hands of non-indigenous people. Relaunched as Indigenous Photograph the site is expanding into a global community of photographers who seek to bring balance to the way stories are told about indigenous people

Brexit stems from a civil war in capitalism – we are all just collateral damage


George Monbiot (The Guardian)

To one sort of capitalist, the insecurity and chaos that Brexit will bring is horrifying. To the other, it is highly profitable. (...)

Boris Johnson ignored the pleas of businesses and politicians across the UK – especially in Northern Ireland – to extend the Brexit transition process. Never mind the pandemic, never mind unemployment, poverty and insecurity – nothing must prevent our experiment in unassisted flight. We will leap from the white cliffs on 1 January, come what may. (...)

So it is worth repeating the big question: why are we doing this to ourselves? I believe the answer is that Brexit is the outcome of a civil war within capitalism.

Broadly speaking, there are two dominant forms of capitalist enterprise. The first could be described as housetrained capitalism. It seeks an accommodation with the administrative state, and benefits from stability, predictability and the regulations that exclude dirtier and rougher competitors. It can coexist with a tame and feeble form of democracy.

The second could be described as warlord capitalism. This sees all restraints on accumulation – including taxes, regulations and the public ownership of essential services – as illegitimate. Nothing should be allowed to stand in the way of profit-making. (...)

Brexit represents an astonishing opportunity for warlord capitalism. It is a chance not just to rip up specific rules, which it overtly aims to do, but also to tear down the uneasy truce between capitalism and democracy under which public protections in general are created and enforced. (...)

The chaos it is likely to cause will be used as its own justification: times are tough, so we must slash regulations and liberate business to make us rich again. (...)

Housetrained capitalists are horrified by Brexit. Not only does it dampen economic activity in general, but it threatens to destroy the market advantage for businesses that play by the rules. (...)

Johnson’s government is what warlord money buys. It could be seen as the perfect expression of the Pollution Paradox, a concept that I think is essential to understanding our politics. What this means is that the dirtier or more damaging an enterprise is, the more money it must spend on politics to ensure it’s not regulated out of existence. As a result, political funding comes to be dominated by the most harmful companies and oligarchs, which then wield the greatest political influence. They crowd out their more accommodating rivals. (...)

Understood in this light, Brexit is scarcely about the UK at all. Oligarchs who have shown great interest in the subject tend to have weak or incomplete ties to this country. (...)

The persistent trick of modern politics – that appears to fool us repeatedly – is to disguise economic and political interests as cultural movements. Throughout this saga, the media has reported the smokescreen, not the manoeuvres. (...)

Brexit, treading on the heels of the pandemic, is likely to harm the lives and freedoms of millions of people in the UK. But it’s not about us. We are just caught in the crossfire of capitalism’s civil war.

Diaspora's attracting some questionable types


I happened to catch an odd similarity in a couple of #newhere posts yesterday

https://joindiaspora.com/posts/a85d7459-115f-9fba-4760-0fb123772375

And

https://joindiaspora.com/posts/a85d7459-135f-9f7d-a108-97f831278834

Both titled "Newcomer", both with a pretty similar hashtag list, both with art rather than a photo.

That's @Matt Basler and @Denny Johnson respectively.

I inquired on each post if the users knew each other. Curiously, those comments have been deleted. Whoever's doing this is clearly trying to hide the fact.

The avatars are found elsewhere online.

"Matt Basler" (EboardNews) is using an Emmanuel Macron caricature.

"Denny Johnson"'s avatar shows up on AsianMack and Asad Mahmod.

No idea what the game is, but someone's creating multiple profiles on Nerdica.Net, a Friendica instance with ... no visible administrator contact. Maybe ? Federated platforms' lack of adequate alerting, monitoring, and flagging capabilities is ... not encouraging.

I suspect that the goal is to spam #ElectricSkateboard content, for whatever reasons. Possibly more.

(That the spammer cannot even properly form their target hashtag is ... amusing.)

Otherwise, you may want to block/ignore these profiles, and keep an eye out for similar.

New normal

A month old, but I fully agree with the sentiment - there's never been a better time to design your ‘new normal' than now.

Brandalism Take Over 100 UK Billboards


Environmental activist groups from the ‘Brandalism’ network have installed over 100 parody car advert posters on billboards and bus stops in England and Wales. The guerilla artworks featuring brands such as Range Rover, Ford, Volkswagen, BMW, Citroen, Lamborghini and Vauxhall were installed without permission in Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, London and Exeter.

The billboard posters criticise the car industry for misleading adverts that have driven up demand for polluting vehicles and private car use – resulting in increased carbon emissions from road transport and worsening air pollution and congestion in towns and cities.

“Car adverts promote private car ownership as a status symbol. Themes of power, success and social status are mixed with exotic locations and empty roads to promote a myth of freedom and mobility. The resulting problems of traffic congestion, worsening air pollution and climate breakdown are left out of these glitzy ads.

Outdoor advertising billboards are used to promote new cars to motorists stuck in traffic. It’s absurd.

Our towns and cities have become so dominated by private cars that we’re struggling to implement sustainable alternatives as the health and social costs mount. The active promotion of polluting vehicles through advertising campaigns isn’t helping the situation. We need a cultural shift away from cars,”
  • Peter Marcuse from Brandalism said.
Over 30 international artists including Paul Insect, Jimmy Cauty, street artist Dr.D, Fokawolf, satirist Darren Cullen, Matt Bonner and Michelle Tylicki created 45 different artwork designs.
