"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves.

Using #ImageMagick #montage #identify and #convert commands to make a #gradient out of image thumbnails sorted by average #sRGB #grey level:

```
montage -tile ${COLUMNS}x${ROWS} -geometry ${TILEWIDTH}x${TILEHEIGHT}+0+0 $( identify -colorspace RGB -format "%[fx:mean] %[filename]\n" in-*.png | sort -nr | cut -d\ -f 2 ) out.png &&
convert tmp.png -colorspace RGB -geometry ${WIDTH}x${HEIGHT} -colorspace sRGB out.png
```

I didn't yet figure out how to get the #gamma-correct colour space conversion to happen inside the montage's own rescaling, so I render at natural size and #downscale with convert afterwards.

The last image is the good result, the other two are gamma-incorrect, thus they appear too dark on screen (and presumably print too).

Mastodon culture is a direct result of its non-monetization. No need to artificially add weight to voices strategically determined to hold your attention and make you see more ads. No algorithm feeding you posts designed to stoke your outrage, keeping you engaged with the platform for longer than you otherwise would have been, longer than you would have liked. No AI gatekeepers preventing important posts from people who care about you showing up in your feed.

The medium is the message.

You are all my comrades.

Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...
