@angristan actually i won't boost that b/c it's a CF link. Should have used this link: https://web.archive.org/web/20200716014743/https://blog.cloudflare.com/cloudflare-network-expands-to-more-than-100-countries/
@angristan fuck me
@Paradox @esvrld Regarding (b), it's overly simplistic to say whether capitalism is efficient or not. In some contexts it's effecient (e.g. a company reducing waste) & in other contexts it's absurdly inefficient (e.g. different companies writing the same closed-source proprietary s/w code). OTOH, the widespread misconception is that it's wholly efficient and that badly needs exposure.

@marc0janssen @nikolal @techit #Amazon is one of the most evil companies you can patronize. It would be a struggle to find a less ethical supplier. Environment alone is sufficient to boycott them: https://framagit.org/greenfediverse/green-instances/-/issues/4
@marc0janssen @nikolal @techit that's a false dichotomy. Treating everything as a binary "evil or non-evil" and calling all evil is the same degree of evil is just a broken rationalization for ethical neglect. If you don't buy your books from Amazon, you can still buy them from the family owned and operated bookstore down the street.
@marc0janssen @techit @nikolal this is like saying "those Trump supporters are not racist". While some are not, in the end their actions support racist policy. You've chosen to continue supporting Amazon, which doesn't make you racist, anti-environment, anti-workers rights, and pro-surveillance, but it makes you a supporter of those outcomes.
