President Biden signed Executive Order 14067, officially titled Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets. Today’s guest explains this executive order is very different from “online banking,” and it has nothing to do with crypto, but would possibly give the government the ability to punish citizens for any contribution, purchase, or even social media comment they don’t like.

When public services are affordable and convenient, people will always choose those resources. They are not supposed to be a capitalistic profit-seeking initiative, they are developed for the benefit of the people, for a better life, just as government resources should be used. (tweet)

I just dealing with censorship in my country and fuck now there's a threat of censorship in AO3 from Tiffany G. I'm a Muslim but this shit makes me saying Jesus fucking Christ. Look, perhaps some westerners cannot comprehend it... Because you never really experience hard censorship. But you wouldn't want it... You don't want censorship. Do not vote Tiffany G
She's not your savior... She's NOT and she sounds like a politician from my country
Edit: Tiffany apparently working as a technical support for government organization

Id like to officially welcome the UK into the “our government is falling apart” gang. There is no catering but someone did start a bonfire in the corner.

Hey, y'all, remember when defunding ICE was really important and it was absolutely a thing that needed to be done and we weren't going to forget it just because the Democrats won the election?
Yeah, how did that turn out? Can we get that going again?

The government sent a bunch of teens into space for an experiment. A Twitter account was ran by some officials for updates on it but after a while the teens hacked into it and started shitposting on the Twitter account and most of the time it was just Among Us stuff.

Reforming the human rights act
The UK is planning on reforming the human rights act.
If it wasn't shitty enough for them to try and go against BASIC human rights to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda, they're now planning on making it legal for it to happen.
This is going to affect immigrants, refugees, criminals, disabled people and asylum seekers.
If the human rights act does get reformed, this is going to make it easier to deport people and reduce the government's responsibility to uphold human rights.
It's the government's way of cleaning their hands by pretending nothing has happened
Please please sign the petition so it will at least get debated in Parliament. Only UK residents and British citizens can sign it, but please please please reblog this to protect human rights
