@matt im not sure i understand the situation correctly, but as far as i know this is as much for legal reasons as it is for marketing. as i understand it, meta is a new legal entity, a parent company of facebook, turning whatsapp instagram etc into their sibling companies. now its not facebook cannibalising those companies, but meta, which has nothing to do with the agreements theyve made with whatsapp for example, saving them a lot of anti-trust lawsuits

wondering which november challenge did i not fail already

Maintaining leftism while losing faith in humanity? 

Lately I've been through a bit of a rough patch emotionally. I mean, fundamentally, I'm doing fine, but I'm completely surrounded by stories about liars and cheaters. Politics is a big part of that, but it isn't just politics. I feel like I'm continually bombarded by information about situations where ordinary people knew that something appalling was going on and just... looked the other way.

It's a good example of my privilege that these kinds of stories come as news to me as opposed to just the way that life is, but meanwhile my faith in humanity is being shaken. And that's hard too because my belief in principles like anarchism and democracy is kind of linked to my belief that people have a basic capacity for goodness.

So, how do the rest of you cope with all this? And how do you cope if this kind of thing is more immediate to your lived experience?

As I say, I've been lucky.
