The US just bought 90% of the antiviral drug that has shown the greatest efficiency against Covid, leaving the rest of the planet with empty hands. That's actively hostile against... well anyone else. It's no longer soft power shit, they're actively stepping on everyone else for their sole advantage
The worst thing is that all this won't even help most Americans. They'll just rack up the prices and leave it collecting dust without being put to use until someone pays the loads of money they want
"China is not the socialist paradise it claims to be"
I don't give a single fuck about whatever bad things you have to say about China because honestly it pales and will always pale at the face of how much the United States harms the rest of the planet
Whatever you think China is, it is not a terrorist state and it is not the most serious threat against humanity at the moment, like the US is

Idea for an Internet Protocol
Basically, conventions in books have existed for centuries. Let's just take that and expand very moderately upon it digitally, with a two-page based (orthodox) browser and physically-based measurements. There is already so much expertise in printing industry and relying on that could prevent reinventions. And we also have TeX.
A website could easily be called a book, a journal, a diary, a brochure etc depending on the context.
It is a far cry from what gopher resurgence and gemini hope to achieve, in the sense that it is in no way minimalistic. But maybe it is a good alternative to Web 1.9?
First glaring problem that you might have noticed lies in the phrase "very moderately".

Been thinking about the future of my #fediverse accounts. I initially saw my #mastodon account as a stream of my consciousness where I occasionally post about random stuff. I haven't really done much of that so I don't know what to focus on for this account. I'm currently thinking of stuff to write for a #personal #blog and a #chromebook blog on @write_as and obviously I can boost those feeds from here but other than that I'm not sure. Should I do a poll on what you guys might like to see here?
