Multilingualism as racialization

Jason Richardson, Christopher Stroud

«Today [in South Africa] contemporary constructs of multilingualism, both in policy and everyday practice, continue to reinforce racialized divisions inherited from historical uses of language as a tool of colonialism, and a mechanism of governmentality in apartheid, the system of exploitation and state sanctioned institutional racism.

If you were thinking to yourself, "I want a classic 1950s rambler but with room to build out my dungeon" have I got a home for you

As a husky person on the internet I both get bombarded with husky videos and cannot watch said husky videos because playing husky audio sets is a chain reaction in my husky 🐺 🎶

"The best way to fight climate change is to massively reduce consumption that causes greenhouse gas emissions. Historically, Barandiarán said, we have tended to use more of everything, regardless of new technology. “When we transitioned from lumber to coal, we still used more lumber than we used before,” she said. “When we transitioned from coal to oil, we still used more coal than we did before.” Thinking of climate change as a problem to be solved through more markets, she said, means locking us into a high-consumption lifestyle. “That fundamentally has to change," she said."

Either the West gets rid of it's addiction to energy or we all die a horrible death. There is no easy way out of this. Technology won't save us. The market won't save us.
