i know not many people would want to read a 10,000 word article about the minecraft end poem and how the author, Julian Gough, was never fairly compensated for his work and has made it public domain.
But it's a very well-written and heartfelt read, and he makes it very clear that none of this is a cash-grab and despite the fact that he is essentially a starving artist in this capitalist society, he only mentions his financial struggles despite Minecraft's huge huge success at the bottom of this article and not in the tweets so as to not dilute his message.
Anyway, I just think it'd be cool if those who are able to could support him in some way whether it be subscribing to his substack or donating to his paypal (that's linked in the article, you can ctrl + F to find it easier), that's all.

If Someone Says A Banned Word, EVERYONE Dies- Trying To Beat Minecraft For TEP TONIGHT 12/7 at 5 PM EST
Time for a sort of stream that was banned by the geneva convention a few months ago: Banned words multiplayer minecraft. The rules of the game are simple- some friends and I have to try and beat the game but every time we say a word banned by chat my partner and lovely assistant jams a big red button that kills us all. Typical tuesday. 20 bucks bans a word for the whole stream. 5 teleports all cod on the map to my location. 10 lets you give someone a status effect of your choosing. 50 kills us all. 100 spawns a wither. If we can hit 1500 we take the whitelist off the server and let everyone come in and help/hinder or just leave signs with the bee movie script.
All this is to support the Trans Empowerment Project, a charity that provides a large array of services from inmate advocacy to food/medication assistance to things as simple as spreading and archiving the real stories of transgender life and history. Even if you dont check out the stream, i encourage you to check out TEP!
