@And_Zoidberg it’s nightmarish. you stand hungry at grocery windows and know they’re just gonna throw it away and by golly when they do you hope they don’t lock the bins, or you’re gonna stay hungry. you find yourself without reliable shelter amid neighborhoods of FOR RENT signs in front of empty homes. normies cannot stop looking when they think you can’t see them; they pretend you do not exist when you can. warehouses of vital meds get stuck behind procedure and inaction, creating shortages.
No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.

here's a good chart from The Past Didn't Go Anywhere
note though that i don't agree with the author that it's antisemitic to say that Zionism is racism, but otherwise the chart is a good rule of thumb

#PuertoRico has been having earthquakes at all hours of the day since December 28th. Many have been minor but anything above a 5.0 on the Richter scale will damage structure. Last Monday's and Tuesday's, plus last night's and this morning's, all exceeded 5.0.
People are afraid to go to sleep because of the possibility of them happening overnight, like what happened at 4am Tuesday. Imagine being in a situation where sleeping outside of your home is safer. This is the reality for many people.
