tech is no more the enemy of the worker than the plow. it is not the yoke but they who put it upon you that must be defeated!

@garbados ill bite as soon as someone can explainbhow were supposed to make it without the terrors of mining and eqaste


@hope this is part of why i’m so bully on unionization and not on tech solutions themselves. to keep these things from doing evil, to even begin to ask how to do them ethically, the workers that make tech must have the collective power to say, No More!

@garbados but its one thing for our unions to have a voice, and another for the colonized areas who's health and earth are being destroyed to have a say

@hope yep! it’s vital that they have power over these systems too — more power than any shareholder.

@hope @garbados its not the mining itself that's harmful to colonized peoples. this is why internationalism and supporting workers movements in the periphery is important.

@wintgenstein @garbados Mmm disagree. Mining and smelting these things is incredibly hazardous rare earth metals are poison

@hope @garbados mining conditions have improved a ton though. Working conditions are dangerous in more unregulated places because its cheaper to do it the dangerous ways
