Truly, history has a lot to teach us about the roots of our radicalism.
When we remember that people were shot so we could have the 8-hour day; if we acknowledge that homes with families in them were burned to the ground so we could have Saturday as part of the weekend; when we recall 8-year old victims of industrial accidents who marched in the streets protesting working conditions and child labor only to be beat down by the police and company thugs, we understand that our current condition cannot be taken for granted - people fought for the rights and dignities we enjoy today, and there is still a lot more to fight for.
The sacrifices of so many people can not be forgotten or we'll end up fighting for those same gains all over again. This is why we celebrate May Day.
Just in: #March 2020 was 2nd warmest March on record for the globe. It's the 44th March & 423rd consecutive month w/ warmer-than-avg temperatures, per @NOAANCEIclimate https://www.noaa.gov/news/earth-had-its-2nd-hottest-march-on-record #StateOfClimate
Любопытная аналогия между знаниями в области программирования и ростовщичеством.🤣
"Knowledge debt is like financial debt. It’s a tool - you need to use it wisely to make a profit. Imagine you want to start a small business. Taking on some debt up front in order to make more in the future can be a great decision. But like financial debt, you’ll need to define the parameters of your debt appropriately to your situation."
Hey, that wasn't so bad after all.
