this possibly comes from a place of privilege but it's very hard for me not to feel optimistic even though the past four years have been awful. all the recent demonstrations in hong kong, chile, ecuador, and so on give me hope. the decentralization of tech gives me hope. the push toward greater inclusion & diversity gives me hope. people pushing fash out of their subcultures give me hope. even seeing black flags fly in different fucking continents gives me hope.

@Cyclideon The one thing I always tell myself is, that there is one universal truth that prevails throughout human history: every system of oppression has fallen. The quest for freedom and equality is ever progressing.

@qcat @Cyclideon The challenge is keeping new ones from replacing them
