I can hardly imagine a concept of non-liberatory & non-egalitarian SolarPunk society.


What is your plan concerning new communities? I am trying to bring people here from a Solarpunk Telegram channel. We would like to have our community here. Also, the list of topic-oriented communities looks a bit random and certainly incomplete.

Old society is not going to leave the scene peacefully. They will go down kicking and screaming, until their last breath leeching energy and matter from the planet and all of us. When they die anyway, why should they let us survive? **So, should we have a SolarPunk warfare available to defend the planet (including ourselves) against "apres nous, le deluge" strategy of planet destroyers?** There was an attempt to create similar kind of warfare, within the ranks of US Army, of all imaginable places. **The 1st Earth Battalion**, if *not exactly* what we may imagine, was certainly planet-oriented. https://web.archive.org/web/20110811190649/http://arcturus.org/field_manual.pdf So, what do you think of the initial question? And if we need it, do you know any examples that could help us answer it and, perhaps, develop the idea towards implementation?

How many people would it take to start and run a federated instance of podcast/radio platform, open to various content creators? Or, perhaps it already exists somewhere?


The content is not a problem. I can curate it. What I need is a helping hand from a sysadmin. In Poland, though, people who could help are rare and far between. The rest is very much money-powered. :(


I see now – I needed to enter “lemm” in community search post to see it. Thank you.


I posted some [content](https://lemmy.ml/post/404883) in lemmy.ml. Now, When I try to post it again here, I show it under "These post may be related". I am more than happy to use cross-posting, but I see no way to do it in either direction. Should I go ahead and post it from scratch or is there any way to crosspost, and I just could'n see it?

Hi, I have two self-hosted instances: https://kinowolnosc.pl (peertube in docker) and https://tepewu.pl (yunohost with several services/apps). The content there and intended use is in the general area of practical SP, degrowth and social permaculture, liberally laced with anarchist, kolapsnik and hacker attitude. I am not technical enough to keep them tidy, nor I have enough time to dig into it (some serious offline projects recently got traction). Is it possible to find some help here, to keep those VPS going and growing? I have no money to pay, so it is a solidarity / mutual aid call. Few major challenges here: - cleaning up the peertube instance after crude manual migration from different domain. - replacing existing Osada instance (soon to expire) with something better (??? friendica ???) - secure XMPP server configuration. (some minor nuissances as well)

Morning coffee musings Transition / Collapse solutions — how to get most out of collapsing infrastructure. During slo-mo catastrophe, more and more infrastructure may become unused, but still technically working. This is what we have now with empty buildings / apartments for example. Or some abandoned industrial facilities taken over by their crews. But there are more technical challenges. If the grid is down, what shall we need to redirect output of a local wind/solar farm to the local community use? How to start running local rail transport? How to salvage content of a logistic centre before it gets marauded? Etc. etc… The inconvenience here lies in the fact that most of such actions are considered illegal under regular circumstances. But we will need them when conditions cease to be “regular”. I believe we should be able to discuss them under the general category of “civil / civic defense” or “communal resilience”. What do you think?
